    Marvel Voices #1 is the type of book Marvel needs to invest more on. It shows just how important it is to bring in other perspectives into this superhero universe and just how different it can all turn out to be. It speaks to the power of voices hungry for diversity in storytelling. And that, in itself, is a beautiful thing. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 18, 2020

    There are quite a few stories, all of which are good to great and play to their own strengths and merits. The beauty of an anthology book like this is it's okay to not love everything. One standout story for me might not be a favorite to someone else. Above all though, I think Marvel has curated an entertaining read from cover to cover and it's exciting to see the perspectives within. Read Full Review

    Seeing yourself reflected in the culture in which you participate and consume is extremely empowering, and it is something that is taken for granted by the privileged. John Jennings Lift Every Voice Read Full Review

    As someone who grew up with Marvel characters, this was a great read. It was awesome to see a book that shared the pages with Spider-Man, Black Panther, Wolverine, and that's just to name a few. Trust me there is a story for just about anyone. Whether you want something with humor, or thought-provoking, or just something light-hearted and fun, Marvel's Voices has you covered.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Feb 19, 2020

    This is a podcast to comics adaptation that has a recommended podcast to go with it, but forget all that most importantly this is a book that features a bevy of talented creators given a noticeable amount of editorial freedom to tell the stories they want to tell. It all adds up to a quality read. Read Full Review

    There may be some odd characterizations along the way, but amongst fourteen different stories, "Marvel's Voices" #1 keeps true to one thing above all else: fun. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Feb 21, 2020

    I recommend approaching this anthology, and ones like it, as a collection of flash fiction " most aren't full stories, they are snapshots of moments in the lives of these characters. Some are built just on one line that a particular writer has always wanted their favorite character to say. Some are introductions to lesser known personalities. Altogether, this is necessarily a messy, unfocused anthology. Flip through the pages and you'll find a story you'll like. This isn't a must-have collection, unless that Wakanda Barbershop cover is your jam. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Erika Hardison Mar 24, 2020

    There are some stories that stand out more than others which is natural. Race with Shuri and Forge is fun, Wolverine against Hulk, and Emma Frost and Black Widow take you on a heartfelt ride and adventure. With Vecchio's queer kissing superhero tribute, Marvel's Voices #1 makes for an interesting mix of diverse content that really needs more time to evolve. I think if this continues as a series, it will be a great project that fans will really enjoy. As a one-off, it feels like a tease to fans who are looking for more fan-fiction. I think Marvel Voices comic can be even more interesting if they included more up-and-coming writers. This isn't to say that the writers that are listed are bad, however, if we are pushing for diversity, we should encourage new talent as well. Read Full Review

    So, I'm very incredulous about this one-shot, but maybe it'll surprise me. Souls Afire is a one-page story that exists. Race also just sort of exists. Black Widow: Be No Evil exists too. A Diamond's Worth... I'm slightly biased towards since I like Emma Frost. It was okay. Assemble! is nice. I'm sure I'd get more out of it if I were gayer. Inspiration is *great*. I genuinely love it. It's horrific and perfect. ...A Friend Indeed was cute. Like with the other story, I'm biased, as I read every issue of Moon Girl. Perspective is genuinely funny. Top of the Key is also one I'm biased towards. I like Mosaic. I thought he had potential as a character. And the tease of a continuation of his story is something that intrigues me. What a Wonderfu World sure does exist. Death was neat. In Christmas Blues, whenever Charlamagne's not on page, all the other characters should be asking, "Where's Charlamagne?" Punishment is really tone deaf. And lastly, Back to Madripoor is fun. Not sure why Hulk is grey at some points, but I chalk that up to a coloring error as the rest of how Immortal Hulk is handled is on point. Overall, this was a very mixed bag, but Inspiration makes it worth reading, honestly. more

    I don’t feel like I had time to connect with most of these stories, and some of them were very problematic (looking at you Punishment).
