    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 26, 2008

    I find it very easy to relate the main character, through which we see the events of this story, and Millar is doing an incredible job of relaying the thoughts and feelings of the young boy. Edwards art is a perfect fit for this style of book and the fight with Hulk and Juggernaut is something to behold. Read Full Review

    The task of putting supermen in the mundane world is a tricky one; the writer is always balancing on the razor's edge between the sublime and the ridiculous. Will Millar drop the ball? So far he's making it work, so I'll just have to keep buying to find out. Read Full Review

    1985 is certainly strange, but certainly intriguing. Some of the initial magic might've worn off a bit, but it's definitely occupying its own niche and it's off-beat enough to warrant a look. Read Full Review

    I just wish Mark Millar would spend several hours hanging out at a bus depot, a laundromat, or an airport departure gate the next time he's in the US. He needs to eavesdrop on how real Americans having real conversations actually speak. Read Full Review

    Marvel 1985 #2 was another enjoyable read. If you enjoy a good mystery story that focuses more on character work and a heavy plot driven story then you should give Marvel 1985 a try. I think you will be pleasantly satisfied. However, if you prefer faster paced stories that have some action then I would suggest avoiding Marvel 1985. Read Full Review
