    All in all, Marvel Comics Presents #2 is a win. Easily one of the more fun comics for Marvel right now., unencumbered by continuity and story constraints as it is. Read Full Review

    A welcome package of homages. Marvel Comics Presents honours the nostalgic past while breathing new life into the concept. There's something for everyone here and the draw of the talented names who are contributing work for this title speaks to the regard and fondness with which it should be held. Read it as a primer, a circuit breaker for whatever else you may be reading, or just as a guaranteed quality read. Read Full Review

    As a whole Marvel Comics Presents continues to be a nice little package of stories that you don't need to be heavily invested in Marvel Comics lore to enjoy. The storytelling really adds some depth and characterization to whoever has been featured each month so far, and the benefit of the first story being an on-going appeals to long time readers giving them something to be more invested into.

    In all, this second issue was a step up from the first and I can’t wait to see what comes next. The preview shows a combo of Wolverine, Captain America and Spider-Man next issue, so that should be fun. However, I wish they would utilize some of their more obscure characters instead (like Gorilla-Man). Read Full Review

    Marvel Comics Presents has a place in the comic racks if they can draw top artists and writers and continue to deliver compelling stories. So far with 2 issues undertheir belt they have done a decent job. Read Full Review

    One can never go wrong with more Gorilla-Man, and luckily this short story delivers. A bit of personal reflection combined with an epic ape battle, this is a splendid note to end the anthology issue on. Read Full Review

    -It's gimmicky, but I like the every ten years concept for Wolverine's story.

    -Wolverine's story gives us some great action scenes.

    -I thought Soule nailed the ending of the Wolverine story.

    -I liked Reed's character in his story quite a bit.

    -The art for Mr. Fantastic's storyline was great.

    -The end of Mr. Fantastic's story was perfect.

    -I liked the writing for Gorilla Man's story.

    THE BAD:

    -Paolo Siquera's art was pretty weak IMO.

    -This whole Wolverine story arc feels very rushed.

    -The Mr. Fantastic story needed to cut back on exposition.

    -The art for Gorilla Man's story was pure ugliness. more

    The Wolverine story was good. The Mr. Fantastic story was very dull. And the Gorilla-Man story was okay. Anthologies are hard to get right.

    For a good 3-strip anthology, you need 9 good things: 3 good ideas, 3 good scripts, and 3 good art performances. By my count, this issue is 7 good things short. There's 1 good idea and 1 good art performance and, tragically, they're not on the same strip.

    Like all anthologies, there was good and bad here. Kinda more towards bad I’ll be honest with you.
