    When all is said and done, The Marvels Project will very likely accomplish exactly what it set out to: tell the definitive tale of how the Marvel Universe took shape against the backdrop of World War II. It's a compelling, expertly crafted read, even if it's not the most exciting. And perhaps more tellingly, it's one that can sit very comfortably next to all the other phenomenal works Brubaker and Epting have crafted around Captain America. Read Full Review

    All-in-all: it’s good. And even though I said I wouldn’t repeat myself, I’ll say once again that if you aren’t reading The Marvels Project and you’re a fan of the history of the Marvel U, go ahead and pick this up when it’s collected in a fancy hardcover a few months from now. I find it very impressive that these guys can continue to find new ways to tell a story that we’ve all read several times already. Read Full Review

    My favorite scene in the comic is the very last panel. In it we see the three characters all together. There's Cap on the left, with the blue in his uniform emphasized. The Sub-Mariner is in the middle, all pale flesh. On the right is the Torch in his bright red jumpsuit. From right to left, that's red, white and blue. What better foreshadowing can there be of the future battles of the Invaders? Read Full Review

    That said, as a single unit, "The Marvels Project" #6 is a stunning array of dynamic, gorgeous visuals, and interesting narration and character work. As well, the final sequence at the end of the issue is very good and, hopefully, provides some guidance as to where the final two issues of the series will be heading. Read Full Review
