Product Description

They may be best known for getting around on their own steam, but sometimes even Marvel Super Heroes need some extra torque. This Haynes Manual takes a look at the amazing vehicles of the Marvel Comics universe, from the X-Men’s supersonic jet, The Blackbird, to the mighty Helicarrier that transports the Avengers into battle and the Green Goblin’s preferred method of travel, the Goblin Glider. Also covering less well-known modes of transport like Spider-Man’s custom beach buggy, the Spider-Mobile, this lavishly illustrated book forms a comprehensive guide to the iconic vehicles that have helped make the Marvel Universe so rich and compelling. Marvel Vehicles: Owner’s Workshop Manual comes complete with schematics and in-depth technical information, making it essential for Marvel fans everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Nerdist : “Now, you can marvel (pun very much intended) at the cornucopia of cars, spaceships, aircraft, and all other manner of motorized miscellany. Clocking in at 160 pages, this is as close as you’ll come to having a Kelley Blue Book equivalent for the Marvel Universe . . . perfect for gearheads and True Believers alike."

Mania: “This manual was so complete and up to date that I learned about Deadpool’s spaceship the “Bea Arthur” and then got the scoop on the latest Ghost Rider’s street rod . . . great mixture of diagrams and direct images from the comic. It features of all the new and classic vehicles our Marvel Heroes get around in . . . This book really does have it all. If you are a more modern fan of Marvel’s work you will love getting the scoop on the Guardians of the Galaxy’s space ships. If you have been lost for a while and out of comics, you’ll be briefed in every single goblin glider ever . . . ever.” : “Anyone who’s ever owned a used car knows the peculiar joy of cracking open a Haynes Guides, that familiar book of design schematics and technical information that was available for just about every auto model you can think of. Insight Editions must know that joy as well, because they’ve just published what might be the greatest Haynes Guide of all time: Alex Irvine’s Marvel Vehicles Owner’s Workshop Manual.”
