MCU Reviews

It’s been almost a month since the publication of MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios—by Joanna Robinson, Dave Gonzales, and me—and we’ve been lucky enough to have many people write thoughtful reviews of the book. If you haven’t already picked up a copy from your local bookstore, there are links to many retailers assembled here.

But perhaps first you’d like to read what somebody else has said about it?

Publishers Weekly (starred review): “a superb chronicle of how Marvel Studios conquered Hollywood.”

The New York Times (review): “The book’s admiration for Marvel movies works in its favor, freeing the writers to skip straight to the gossip, like the relative who pulls you aside at Thanksgiving to whisper about your cousin’s divorce.”

The New York Times (a roundup of recent recommended books): “This engaging book captures how movies based on comic-book properties came to dominate pop culture — at least until now.”

The Washington Post: “Robinson, Gonzales and Edwards set out to write ‘the most thorough, authoritative history of Marvel Studios to date,’ and that is exactly what they have done.”

Library Journal (starred review): “With comprehensive research and no small amount of wit, the authors detail the corporate strategies that led to the expansion of Marvel Studios.”

Agents of Fandom: “necessary reading for anyone who fancies themselves an MCU fan.”

PopMatters: “essential reading for any fan of blockbusters or Hollywood history.”

The Cosmic Circus: “The earth-shattering production revelations uncover the most controversial topics Marvel fans have always wanted to know.”

CBR: “MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios isn’t just an entertaining and informative story; it’s an essential chronicle of cinematic history.”
