    Despite that small nitpick over the reaction of some of the real world people, I still loved this issue and Edwards art fits this type of story perfectly. With only a couple of issues left, I'm a bit concerned about whether or not Millar can wrap this up with a satisfying conclusion, but I'm certainly enjoying the ride so far. Read Full Review

    Anyone who's ignored 1985 as just a novelty series to appease a Millar whim might want to give it another look. There's more going on in these pages than the reaction of some senior citizens to finding the Sandman in their back yard. Read Full Review

    The only thing about the book that seems incongruous at this point is the title and setting itself -- the choice of 1985 as the time period seems both arbitrary and irrelevant. Hopefully, more will be made of it. That aside, "1985" doesn't have any major flaws, and after a slow-ish start, readers should find the ending of this issue grabs them sufficiently -- and frankly, if a Fin Fang Foom appearance doesn't do it for you, then maybe the series wasn't for you in the first place.

    Oh well, there's still the mystery of why this series is called Marvel 1985 (and has captions indicating that the year is 1985) when it's actually taking place in 1984. Read Full Review

    Me? I hate to say it, but I've bought the first two issues already. I might as well finish it. But, I won't lie: I hate this feeling of obligation. Read Full Review
