"I've been dreaming about making this book for over a decade (especially the design for the Spider-Man pop-up) actually even though I've been a Marvel Comics fan since I can remember," Reinhart reveals to Marvel.com.

Thanks to Abrams Books, we can share the following interior pop-ups with you!

"One of my favorite memories as a third grader was being able to go to the nearby Navy Exchangemy father was in the militaryand buy comics on my own," reflects Reinhart. "The squeak of that rotating comics rack, all of those amazing Marvel covers and stories to choose fromI'll never forget how exciting when new comics came in and how difficult it was to choose with my limited allowance!"

"Marvel, to me, embodies a universe of endless possibilities," continues Reinhart. "So I was honored when I got the opportunity to finally make the Marvel Universe pop! When it came to conceptualizing this pop-up book, it was a little tough to edit down my ideas. I had TOO many to cram into just one book!"

As for his creative process, Reinhart states, "My favorite part of creating a pop-up book is usually the initial design phase of cutting, folding and taping together the original working pop-up 'sketch' before it gets more refined and the color artwork is applied." 

"This time, however, getting the pencil sketches of my (amazing) comic artist collaborators,  Aaron Lopresti, Paul Pelletier and Stacy Lee Phillips, was the most exciting to me," Reinhart continues. "Typically, when I collaborate with another illustrator on a pop-up book, I send them rough artist guides that outline basic shapes to fill with characters, objects or backgrounds. Seeing those boring guidelines come back as living breathing comic art, even without the inking and color applied, just blew me away. I was taken back to being that kid picking out comics in the third grade! There's so much energy in those first pencil sketches, and I couldn't wait to piece them into the pops I had already created."
