Marvel has become a pop-culture colossus. While Marvel Studios totally dominates the movie release calendar, the original comics have been experiencing a renaissance of interest from a whole new generation of fans.

DK’s Marvel: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know and Marvel Encyclopedia have sold 80,000 and 145,000 copies in the UK respectively, showing that the appetite for beautiful comic book reference remains strong

DK’s Big Ideas Simply Explained series has been hugely successful, dealing with real-world subjects such as math, psychology, and philosophy. In 2016, DK released its first licensed entry in the series, The Star Trek Book (currently rated 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com)

Taking this well-established nonfiction format and applying it to Marvel allows DK to show and describe Marvel’s comic universe in a way that has never been attempted before.

Comprises a collection of self-contained essays, each devoted to a key aspect of the Marvel comic universe, and illustrated with stunning comic artwork.

Approaches the Marvel comics in a completely new, unique, and innovative way.

Infographics and quotes distill important information into accessible chunks.

Stephen “Win” Wiacek has worked in all areas of the comics industry since the 1980s. Stephen lives in London and has contributed to DK’s DC Comics Encyclopedia and numerous other comic book-related titles.

"The Marvel Book is a breath-taking tour of literally every concept that forms the gloriously bewildering and expansive Marvel Multiverse... an indispensable guide." Starburst
