Sounds like it could be either Who's Who in the DC Universe or the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.

I had (might still have, somewhere) a book called something like "An encyclopaedia of comics", or "who's who in the comics" or something along those lines. It was a paperback, about an inch thick that contained an alphabetical list of an awful lot of comics and characters, from various companies.

it wasnt one book.. it was a set of books, around the size of a graphic novel..
and there was one for each letter or a small set of letters.. there were quite a few... sorry im being so difficult :p

Who's Who and OHOTMU weren't just one book. They were both series.

and DC Who's Who is coming soon as Showcase Presents

Was it The Encyclopedia of Super-Heroes by Jeff Rovin? That one fits your description.

EDIT: Oops. Read the rest of the thread. Never mind.

Cei-U!
I summon my library!
