    This book actually came out in 1996, not 1998. Amazon probably just says 1998 because that’s when the most recent printing was…but to my knowledge, there was nothing new about any of the re-printings.

    thanks! It matters most for these companion volumes – I like to place them by date so they don’t spoil anything!

    This was the first “companion” type book I ever had, and I got it as a birthday present the year after it came out, in 1997. To this day, it’s the single best book about Marvel Comics I’ve ever read, even if it IS over a decade out of date!

    My copy also has a lot of sentimental value for me — I read this thing backwards and forwards dozens of times as a kid, and I studied each and every picture for hours. I even tried to copy and/or trace a good deal of the pictures (and trust me, there were a lot of them!).

    The most recent stuff the book covers in any detail is some of the early events in the Clone Saga, from 1995. The epilogue mentions that the Onslaught crossover was just starting up at the time the book went to press.
