Clean, Quick Reference,
This review is from: Marvel Avengers The Ultimate Character Guide (Dk) (Hardcover)
Whilst not as comprehensive as other volumes like this, this Character Encyclopedia is an excellent basic reference for all things Avenger. It features a generally clean and logical presentation style, even if the included information is sometimes sparse or often tenuous.
It offers an excellent jumping in point for anyone looking to get familiar with these characters and the Marvel Universe in general. For the price I paid (£) I couldn't recommend it more. A hardback, with good quality pages and thousands of excellent and enthralling images it was brilliant value.
Each character is treated fairly, given the same amount of space whether they have 1 comic issue of history to cover or 60 years worth of issues. This makes it very quick and easy to flick through and look up your favourites, but is a bit odd when you realise you have only skimmed the surface of some characters, but get everything you need with others.
Overall excellent value, but only the very basic information inside, the perfect index to a collection but perhaps a brief encyclopedia.
