andlt;bandgt;andlt;bigandgt;EXPLORE THE MOST EXCITING CITYandlt;BRandgt; IN THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OFandlt;BRandgt; COMICS' MOST EXCITING SUPER HEROES!andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; 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: andlt;BRandgt; andlt;ulandgt; andlt;liandgt;The stately uptown museum that inspired the Avengers Mansionandlt;/liandgt; andlt;liandgt;The Greenwich Village street that is home to Dr. Strange's Sanctum Santorumandlt;/liandgt; andlt;liandgt;The bridge where Spider-Man tried — and failed — to save his girlfriend, Gwen Stacyandlt;/liandgt; andlt;liandgt;The site of the X-Men's first battle against Dark Phoenixandlt;/liandgt; andlt;/ulandgt; andlt;BRandgt; 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.

Synopsis:

A guide to New York City like no other--as the center of the Marvel universe--showcases 40 years of the favorite haunts and hangouts of Marvel Comics leading superheroes. Photos throughout.
