Has there been anything newer?

Back in circa 1995 or so I had a page-a-day desk calendar for Marvel Comics trivia. Still have it somewhere. It exists as testimony of why I should never buy page-a-day calendars--because I would just save every single page. I'm such a packrat.

Although not a book, there is an awesome ongoing blog/newsletter online called Comic Book Urban Legends:

Full of great factoids.

I'd just pick up a Marvel Encyclopedia and/or DC Comics Encyclopedia and grab random facts out those. They're awesome books just to sit down and flip through, you'll find yourself getting lost and cross-referencing everything. So many facts, you'll never run out of trivia.

Ever notice though how Marvel info doesn't always match, like the fact that they say Spidey has hazel eyes.... EVERYONE knows he has BROWN EYES, that hazel nonsence comes from the toby maguire era! Heck the encyclopedia doesn't even match their website info half the time.

The difference between brown eyes and hazel eyes is kind of hair-splitting, anyways. Hazel is close enough to brown.
