This is a really fun collection of comic-book trivia culled from Brian Cronin's weekly column "Comic Book Legends Revealed." Google it. Cronin avoids having the book feel like a string of unrelated tidbits by piecing his articles together in such a way that it reads like a history text, albeit one told from the corners of DC and Marvel's back rooms.

Favorite bit of trivia: When he died in 1996, Marvel writer and editor Mark Gruenwald's will stipulated that his ashes be mixed with the ink used in a printing of one of his comics. So, if you own the first edition trade paperback collection of Squadron Supreme, you own a bit of the writer himself.
