"75 Years of Marvel Comics: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen" Book by TASCHEN

Though it doesn’t come with its own book stand, like the Sumo-sized Annie Leibovitz limited edition, the75 Years of Marvel Comics by publisher TASCHEN is still a hefty and voluminous printed matter. Measuring at 11.4-inch by 15.6-inch with 712 pages, it features some 2,000 original arts and photos, including a 4-foot long accordion-style foldout highlighting Marvel Comics history. As loyal as fans of comic books are, they are also more skeptical than most when it comes to a new publication “cataloging” the history of comics. But not this one, professed Marvel’s former chairman Stan Lee and TASCHEN. The book focuses not only on the various characters and titles throughout Marvel’s 75 years, but the artists, writers, and interesting side-stories not familiar to even the most ardent of fans. Penned by Roy Thomas, former editor-in-chief of Marvel, and TASCHEN art director Josh Baker, The 75 Years of Marvel Comics: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen is available now at TASCHEN store locations worldwide andAmazon.com. via FreshnessMag.com
