    Much like Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s Superman: Secret Origin series, The Marvels Project magically manages to redefine a story you already know so well and make it even better. It’s like a tender hug, a soft blanket and a cup of warm milk that sums up all the salient points about these characters and reminds you why superheroes are so awesome… like a tender hug that kicks Nazi ass!

    Overall Brubaker and Epting have created a great window into the Golden Age Marvel Universe. Managing to offer a fresh take on a familiar concept by focusing their story mostly on ancillary characters. I can only hope that when this series ends Marvel continues to explore this period of time in their history. And for the record, I would be completely on board for a noir Ferret detective series.

    Brubaker, Epting, and Stewart are not only retelling the origin of the modern Marvel Universe, but they're building the moral framework for everything that's happened since. This is how you craft a modern mythology. Read Full Review

    "The Marvels Project" is the kind of book that I think is going to benefit greatly from being re-read all at once. While I'm enjoying it serialized every month, I think it's going to be great fun to go back through and watch how all the different plot threads and characters intersect and weave together to form a unified whole. Until then, though, it's a nice experience revisiting the Marvel Universe from 70 years ago. Read Full Review
