I run half and full marathons. Recently a friend asked me if I would run the 2014 NYC Marathon with her. At first I said no but later changed my mind when she told me that we'd be running through all five boroughs. That is too interesting to resist. Once I'd made the decision to proceed, then I realized I'd be seeing many notable places based upon my love of superheroes, particularly those in the Marvel universe. I did a Google search and found The Marvel Comics Guide to New York City, which I looked at and bought on Amazon. This is a wonderful book. For the comic book fan, this shows the real landmarks you've read in Marvel Comics, gives you an indication of where some landmarks would be if they really existed, and shows real places that were the inspiriation for fictionalized versions in the comics. As someone who will be running in NYC and then be a tourist checking out the hub of the Marvel universe, this book was a delightful, fascinating read. If you're a comic fan who is thinking of going to NYC or a comic fan who just wants a look behind the curtain of Marvel Comics' home territory, this book is a must read.

This book contains NO color pictures. It has 236 pages of WORDS, WORDS, WORDS and 30 rather small black-and-white illustrations. If you want an encyclopedic list of every time a Marvel superhero flew past the Empire State Building, then this book is for you.

There are a few photos too (all small and fuzzy) of places like Central Park.
I'm astonished that the MARVEL people allowed their name to be attached to this book.

It arrived in time and in great condition and I thought it was very interesting. I admit I didn't actually use it to get around, I used a map of the subway instead just because it was handier, but I did enjoy reading about the different Marvel events that took place at each landmark or place I had visited, or planned to visit.
Be aware though that this was published a while ago, so none of the MCU is included.
