The Marvel Comics Guide to New York City

About the book


EXPLORE THE MOST EXCITING CITY IN THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF COMICS' MOST EXCITING SUPER HEROES! Perhaps one of the most popular and recognizable "characters" in Marvel Comics is New York City itself. When comics legend Stan Lee decided that Marvel Super Heroes like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four would work and play on the real-life streets of New York, he made it thrillingly easy for readers to imagine their favorite crimefighters just around the corner. Now, armed with this action-packed guidebook, Marvel fans can take a fun-filled tour of the Big Apple, visiting some of the most famous and obscure locations from Marvel's long, rich history: - The stately uptown museum that inspired the Avengers Mansion - The Greenwich Village street that is home to Dr. Strange's Sanctum Santorum - The bridge where Spider-Man tried -- and failed -- to save his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy - The site of the X-Men's first battle against Dark Phoenix From the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty to Times Square, you'll get blow-by-blow descriptions of Marvel's greatest adventures, and the lowdown on Marvel landmarks both real and imagined. Whether you're a native New Yorker, a thrill-seeking tourist, or a curious armchair traveler, with this one-of-a-kind guide you can explore the city that never sleeps and the comics that live forever.
