1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 27, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Want to talk about a labor of love? How about trying to catalog and document all of Marvel Comics' graphic novels, trade paperbacks, prose novels, and children's books ever published? That's exactly what Rob Weiner does in this thoroughly exhaustive reference book. Over five years in the making, Weiner gives Marvel fans a one-stop shopping place for information on all of these books published through 2005.

As I paged through the book I was simply blown away by the amount of information inside. I had no idea that there were so many books out there. But of course, in the past decade, we've seen this trend towards preprinting story arcs of varying numbers of issue into book format. Comic fans are no longer merely collectors and some are not collectors at all. They still want to keep up with their favorite characters and buying one book every six months versus having to run to the comic store monthly is simply more desirable for a lot of people and for those people especially, this is a fantastic tool.

What I love about Weiner's layout is that he didn't just decide to list books in alphabetical order but instead he grouped the sections by subject matter or characters. For example there is a section for Marvel's Superheroes with subsections for individual heroes or groups of heroes such as The Avengers, Conan/Kull, Hulk and She-Hulk, Thor, X-Men/Mutants, Wolverine, etc...

Next is the section for special volumes and series like the Marvel Masterworks and Essentials lines and Epic Comics graphic novels, followed by sections for Children's books, Prose novels, Marvel/DC crossovers, guidebook and indexes and more.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent resource, listing several books I'd never heard of (and considering I run a website devoted to cataloging bookshelf format comics and graphic novels, that's pretty impressive.)

There were a few isbn numbers wrong, often just a couple digits switched or similar typos. I doubt the average reader will notice this, but I was using the book for heavy reference and had some trouble because of it. I assume there were more errors than I noticed, since I only was looking at a small portrait of the material here (about 20 out of 200 books that I checked through this resource).

I did also find the organization a little weird - while alphabetical by author last name makes sense in a library context, it's a lot less useful to the average fan. Often you see the listing for vol. 5 of a book way before you see vol. 1, for example. It's hard to get a really good cross section at a glance - but I guess that's why I'm making my dynamic database, so people can sort this kind of information. No printed solution will be perfect for everyone.

In any case, the typos and other issues are far outweighed by the amazing amount of time that's gone into cateloging each book and writing a synopsis(!) for almost every title. This is quite a book and essential for any modern library.
