    While this might be a bit below most people's radar, it is also probably worth a look. While Avengers was also destined to be bigger, Ant-Man might be destined to be better as it takes a more character-centric approach. That is evident here as this is much more about the character than it is about the big spectacle, but it still manages to tell an interesting story. Those interested in a little bit of comic history will like the backup features as well as we get introduced to Pym for the first time all over again. This issue is worth a look, especially for those that want to get refreshed on Ant-Man before the movie comes out, and proves that good things sometimes come from taking the smaller approach.

    It's not a bad introduction to the character for new readers, but for those of us who are big fans of Ant-Man, it's pretty disappointing. Read Full Review

    All told, there's a fair amount of content here for the $3.99 cover price, but those interested in learning more about the character are better served looking elsewhere. Read Full Review

    All plot and little else, "Ant-Man: Larger Than Life" #1 is a decent glimpse in to the world of Hank Pym and the origins of Ant-Man. Unfortunately, it falls short of being anything more than a printed commercial churned out by the hype machine as Marvel's latest cinematic release draws nearer. The addition of the two stories from "Tales to Astonish" elevates this comic nicely, giving readers a peek into the origins of Ant-Man and the variation in genre this character has experienced, from the horror tale of "The Man in the Ant Hill" to the boldly costumed debut of a hero in "The Return of the Ant-Man!"

    Overall I give it a 2, it probably won't appeal to anyone other than people like me that like Hank Pym as Ant Man and it could really do a much better job of giving people some background on Hank Pym, but sadly the yawn of a story makes it barely worth the read. I do really like Andrea Di Vito's art in the new story though, which I gave a 4 to. Unless you get a good chuckle out of the reprints I would say you should probably avoid this one, this week.
