    Anniversary issues are often hit or miss. With Marvel's 75th Anniversary special, we get a taste of some of the great things they've given us over the years. While it's obvious so much more could have been included, we get a nice variety of stories, pin ups, historical notes and more. This comic may not change the face of today's comic market but it's a great look at some of the characters we love by several great creators. The opening story by James Robinson and Chris Samnee should definitely win you over. After that, there's plenty more to bring a smile to your face. This is a 'celebration' issue done right. Even if you only just "like" Marvel Comics, you'll want to check this issue out. Read Full Review

    Overall, the Marvel 75th Anniversary Celebration is a solid read. Bendis and highlight reel of artists contribute covers for fake comics that are entertaining and beautiful all at once and I recommend Marvel fans give this one a look. Sometimes it's nice to look back at what got you to 75 years, and Marvel has done it right with this one. Read Full Review

    As a whole, the anthology serves as a very appropriate tribute to 75 years of Marvel history. Some shorts, however, are stronger than others. The standout, shockingly, is not Timm's short, but the collaboration between writer James Robinson, artist Chris Samnee, and colorist Jordie Bellaire. Read Full Review

    With five enjoyable adventures, a collection of eight covers featuring "Marvel Comics We Never Made," a tribute page to creators no longer with us and a sprinkling of text pieces that track the confluence of Marvel and the real world, "Marvel 75th Anniversary Celebration" #1 packs a lot of bang for your buck. That said, this is a collection more apt to please hardcore or long-term Marvel fans as opposed to hooking itself too deeply into passing, casual fans that are looking for a good starting point. Robinson & Samnee's "Anniversary" provides a nice gateway, but the rest of the issue is clearly targeted at more seasoned readers who can appreciate the decisions that went into the anniversary issue's creation.
