Later developed with Lee the bulk of the companys maruee characters in a three year frenzy Incorporatingthan one hundred original interviews with those who worked behind the scenes at Marvel over a seventy year spanMarvel Comicspacks anecdotes and analysis into a gripping narrative of how a small group of people on the cusp of failure created one of the mostenduring pop cultural forces in contemporary Ameri. This is a very good account of what was going on behind the scenes at Marvel Comics during the 1980s I was fascinated by this because I worked at the UK office of Marvel during that same period and made the pilgrimage to Marvel US around 1982 But as a casual visitor I had no idea what was going on with the editors on a day to day basis This book explained it all completelySean Howe s untold history of Marvel Comics really comes to life detailing the shenanigans during the period 1972 to around 1986 Sadly the coverage of the golden years of Marvel 1961 1971 and the later period post 1995 is a good deal thinner Sparse actually This makes me wonder if Howe had planned just to concentrate on the Shooter years but his publishers reconsidered and asked him to add material on the earlier and later periodsThere are other books that cover the earlier years better than this Tales to Astonish does a very good job on Marvel of the 1960s Men of Tomorrow also sheds some much needed light on those years Even Stan Lee s own Excelsior does a better job on the 1960s than Untold Story doesAnd the corporate raider years of the mid 90s is far better covered in Dan Raviv s Comic WarsThe material on Marvel s fortunes during the late 1990s and onwards is positively spartan so cursory that it might as well have been left outSomeday someone will write a complete history of Marvel but this isn t it Don t get me wrong if you want a thorough and balanced account of how Marvel fared under the leadership of Jim Shooter Untold Story does a very fair job It s just not the whole story
