I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon. Read full review

This book gives you the inside look on how a x-men comic is made and also helps you learn how to make one yourself if you like. Anyways, this book is the best for ones who like comics and who like making them.
