ALL OF THE MARVELS is a huge treat for fans of the comics, and it’s also a revelation for readers who don’t know Doctor Strange from Doctor Doom. A National Arts Journalism Program Fellow and winner of the Eisner Award for Best Comics-Related Book, Wolk has written about comics and culture for outlets like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times. He is a lifelong comics reader and an expert on all things Marvel, and that knowledge shines throughout ALL OF THE MARVELS as he tackles the comics’ world of constant spectacle and drama, so broad and complicated that its mysteries perpetually unfold over hundreds of pages every week. But just as engaging is Wolk’s enthusiasm for making the Marvel story accessible to readers of all backgrounds. There is no such thing as “real fan” or “fake fan” on Wolk’s tour through Marvel’s fascinating web of series and stories—the only requirement is curiosity.

“Brilliant, eccentric, moving and wholly wonderful… Wolk proves to be the perfect guide for this type of adventure: nimble, learned, funny and sincere… “All of the Marvels” is magnificently marvelous. Wolk’s work will invite many more alliterative superlatives. It deserves them all.” —Junot Díaz, The New York Times Book Review
