The DC Comics Encyclopedia [$40.00] / The Vertigo Encyclopedia [$29.99] / Marvel Chronicle: A Year by Year History [$50]

We batched these three together because they’re clearly, quintissentially for the hardcore comics enthusiast. These are history books first—documenting the first appearance of a character, the initial emergence of a storyline, the series’ run, the writers and artists—and art books simultaneously, true to the form.  These books are big, they’re gorgeous, and of course, they’re ‘encyclopedic’ in scope and presentation.  The ecstatic recipient has a large, sturdy bookshelf, no doubt cluttered with comics actions figures, with which to house them.
