2016 book: Hidden Universe Travel Guides: The Complete Marvel Cosmos

Hidden Universe Travel Guides: The Complete Marvel Cosmos by Marc Sumerak
Rating: Liked (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

Book received free for review from Insight Editions.



What a fun book this is! As the title implies, it's set up just like a tour book, just for the whole universe.

For each place, there's all the expected information you'd see in a tour book, set up exactly the same way. Overview of the area, What to Wear, Sights and Activities, Lodging, Etiquette, a "Did you know?" section, Tips for a Fun Trip, Do's and Don'ts, etc. That would be interesting enough, but this book belonged to the Guardians of the Galaxy crew, and they all made notes all over it. Each of them has a perfectly distinct handwriting, so it's easy to tell who wrote each note.

While the art is fun, it's the text that really makes the book. Unfortunately there was a request to not to quote any of it, since it's still subject to change, so I'll share a few images from it instead. Click behind the cut to see it.

As this was a graphic novel, it doesn't count towards my book total for the year.
