Marvel Alpha Block: The Marvel Cinematic Universe From A To Z by Peskimo (book review).

May 9, 2019 | By | Reply More

The long titled ‘Marvel Alpha Block: The Marvel Cinematic Universe From A To Z’ is the 6th book in Abrams ‘Block Books’. It is literally a block book with card pages, a couple of which fold out. Although the bumf says it’s for all ages, it is really designed for your youngest sprogs as the most text used is for naming the characters.

As the title says, it goes through the list of the film characters with simplistic art. If you’re going to indoctrinate them, get ‘em young although I’m not sure if they’d be old enough for the films just yet.

Oddly, it’s only the letter ‘B’ that gets multiple entries so poor Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver don’t. At the back of the book, there is a foldout of all the characters and you can send you sprogs wild as they try to locate the multiple picture entries of the characters throughout.
