    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Oct 28, 2008

    Marvel 1985 #6 is a surprisingly strong final chapter for a series that has felt at times a little padded and insubstantial, but which is brought to a close here with a certain amount of style and class. It's perhaps still not as coherent a story as it set out to be (I still can't work out where that anachronistic H.E.R.B.I.E. toy from issue #1 came from, or why the Hulk appeared in the "real" world to fight the villains when the other heroes didn't), but it has provided a nostalgic, optimistic yarn that accurately captures the joy of superheroes as viewed from a child's perspective, and which has been infused with a charming fairy-tale quality that has helped to compensate for its shortcomings.

    Even if the majority of the issue played to convention, I can honestly say I loved the ending. Millar comes ever closer to breaking the fourth wall in his wrap-up, and the ultimate fate of Toby and his family left a big smile on my face. It's a shame the series as a whole couldn't do that more often. Read Full Review

    As I said, it's contrived and rushed and wholly forgettable and I'm fairly disappointed with the whole storyline after reading this socalled conclusion. Read Full Review
