    As others have said, very much a reference book — don't expect much in the way of images or detailed info on characters . Still, a good book for the comic fan who plans to sightsee in New York. Also, reading the storyline summaries makes all the more obvious how wonderfully ridiculous some of them are.

    A definite niche book, possibly to the point where a review is extraneous. Most people will skip over a reference book that combines real historical and comic book information on locations in New York. And those who are interested in such a book are likely to be so no matter what I say. It was a delightful read for short rides on the bus.

    This book is perfect for the uber-fan who wants to know where it is their favorite Marver heroes live, and where certain major events occured. The book was fairly intuitive and clearly written. I love how they practically pinpoint Spider-man's home among other things. Recommended for any BIG fan of the Marvel Universe.
