    And the awesome super-hero battle doesn't hurt, either. Read Full Review

    It's been a very long time since a comic book rustled up quite so many emotions in me, and I think that's a testament to The Marvels Project #3's superb writing and narrative angle. This is some phenomenal work, but we shouldn't be surprised. We expect nothing less of Brubaker and Epting. Read Full Review

    You could not have picked a better team than Brubaker, Epting and Stewart to retell the earliest days of the Marvel Universe. Theyve managed to take a bunch of stories that youve read a million times, tie them all together into a cohesive tale and make the whole thing seem fresh and new. Its the perfect birthday present to Marvel. Read Full Review

    As much as I appreciate the recap page in the front of the book, though, this series by its very nature screams for some back matter, be it just a page or two going over the history of the characters in that particular issue or even in what comic certain scenes portrayed in the book originally occurred, much like the Torch/Namor fight. Hopefully, that type of background information will be included in collected editions. Brubaker and Epting continue as one of Marvel's premier teams in this issue and the series should not be missed by any fan of the creators, Captain America or Marvel's Golden Age. Read Full Review

    But when the Golden Age Angel is running around punching people and looking for information, and the Golden Age Human Torch is fighting Namor over Coney Island? It's just a series of events. Brubaker doesn't add enough value to these events, doesn't do enough to sell why these characters should matter, and that makes "Marvels Project" #3 just a decent version of 2009 nostalgiacore, possibly worth a read, but nothing that demands your attention.
