Format: Hardcover
As you can probably guess from the title of the book, this presents almost 4,000 covers from Marvel Comics published between July, 1961 (shortly before the first appearance of the "Fantastic Four" ushered in the Marvel Age of Comics) and 1986, thus providing a span of 25 years. In some cases, titles are continued to 1988 or 1990 (this book was originally published in 1991).

This is the second of two volumes and presents titles beginning from "Kazar" to "the Uncanny X-Men." "Captain America" is in this volume, because his first series of the Marvel Age began in "Tales of Suspense" which eventually became his own title. For the same reason, "the Mighty Thor" is not (because he premiered in "Journey into Mystery" and kept the numbering). Thus "Thor" covers appear in volume 1: A through J.

Nearly every issue published between those two dates is shown, but there are exceptions. There are no magazines (like "Epic Illustrated" or "Crazy") or foreign reprints. Western titles are shown, but not always in their entirety. There's only a handful of teen books presented. Some titles are truncated; covers for "Strikeforce Morituri" issues one through four are shown, issues 5 to 31 are not.

In addition to the cover photos, Gerber also assigns an RVI ("relative value index") to every issue, shown or not. This was a tool designed to give people an idea of an issue's cash value, not only when this book was published but for several years to come.

An index of titles and artists that appear in both books appears in this volume. There is also a guide to grading, buying, selling, storing, preserving and restoring comics.

Generally speaking, this book covers period when Marvel Comics went from publishing "Two Gun Kid" to putting out "Transformers." It may not show every Marvel cover you remember fondly, but it is a lot of fun to just browse through.

Actually ordered the wrong book but was able to sell it to an interested party.
The cover plastic (that comprises the actual cover page) was warped on front and back but the contents inside were in great shape. For the price was well worth it.
