A Guide to Marvel

marvel-graphic-novels-and-related-book-covers-300x300The fine folks at the always informative Sci Fi Pulse, have a great interview with author Robert Weiner at their site. Weiner has written a book entitled Marvel Graphic Novels and Related Publications, which is available now from McFarland Publishing.

The 399 page book details Marvel’s popular works and characters from 1965-2005, something Weiner is obviously familiar with, and passionate about.

Plus he’s a librarian! And us fanboys always love librarians who like comics. The great thing about being a comics reader today is that there are books like this available which offer exhaustive info which would otherwise be difficult to attain. Check out the interview with Weiner here, and the contents here.
