Books on Comic Book Companies
I do so love my Dorling Kindersley books – I have a whole bunch of travel guides on my book shelf and pretty much the entire set of the children's science and natural world series (forgot the various series title!) but they include volumes on anything from sharks to trees to volcanoes. Great pictures, concise explanations – I actually prefer to use them over adult books when I'm doing preliminary research. I also have a great DK title called Spiderman: The Ultimate Guide, written by Tom DeFalco. Now DK's released The Marvel Chronicles, as well as The Vertigo Encyclopedia based on DC's imprint. They look to be great references for comics aficionados and comics history buffs. Read more about the release on the Publishers' Weekly website.
