Description

New York City has had a profound influence on the Marvel Comics universe. Unlike Batman's Gotham City or Superman's Metropolis, the Marvel superheroes - Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers - are grounded firmly in the streets of New York, working and living beside us. This fun and informative guide will take you through those streets, pointing out locations of interest along the way. Peter Parker's apartment in the West Village? We'll show you how to get there. Looking for the Avengers headquarters? They might give you funny looks when you show up at the Frick Museum, but don't worry, you're in the right place. You'll also discover why Stan Lee decided to use New York as his backdrop in the first place, and what effect that decision has had on subsequent generations of comic book artists and writers. Whether you're a curious traveller or just a Marvel Comics fan, The Marvel Comics Guide to New York Citygives a fresh and fun new look at the greatest city in the world - and the Marvel universe.
