While ostensibly we love the Marvel Universe for its vast, diverse array of characters, its sprawling storylines, and its uniquely grounded sense of adventure, we have to admit that it’s partly due to the awesome arsenal of vehicles that its characters cavort around in. Now, you can marvel (pun very much intended) at the cornucopia of cars, spaceships, aircraft, and all other manner of motorized miscellany in Insight Editions’ Marvel Vehicles: Owner’s Workshop Manual by Alex Irvine.
Clocking in at 160 pages, this is as close as you’ll come to having a Kelley Blue Book equivalent for the Marvel Universe. If you’ve ever wanted to know what kind of engine the Punisher is rocking in his van (“3.7-liter, inline 5, turbocharged, max horsepower 312,” for the record), this is the book for you. With an in-depth analysis of dozens of Marvel vehicles, the book is perfect for gearheads and True Believers alike. Before it hits stores on November 4, though, we have an exclusive sneak peek at some of the best and brightest entries in the book, including the Guardians of the Galaxy’s ship, Thor’s Chariot, and much more.
