Marvel gets the Taschen treatment!

Taschen have just announced 75 Years of Marvel: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen.

This large format, 720 page coffee table hogging work will be released in October, and joins previous volumes on DC Comics, such as 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking and its smaller companion volume The Golden Age of DC Comics.

Containing over 2000 images corralled by editor and art director John Baker (including a handful of UK images that I was kindly approached to provide) this mighty XL format tome also more than 300 individual biographies and is appropriately authored by Roy Thomas with input from various fans and collectors.

The book also features what is described as "a four-foot accordion-fold timeline, suitable for framing" - the mind boggles!!

Could make a very suitable birthday present for someone, perhaps... if you have $200 to spare, at any rate ;-)


  1. Somewhere in my archives I have another very "big" Marvel book - the Expanding Marvel Universe, which you could, if you so wished, open it up to form a giant wall chart! It's much to good to do that with, though!

  2. Can't say that I ever saw that one, but there's been a lot more history-orientated Marvel books in the past decade or so.

  3. Really I enjoy your site with effective and useful information. It is included very nice post with a lot of our resources.thanks for share. i enjoy this post. narcisismo maligno
