Issue Details




Kurt Busiek


Alex Ross


January 1994


Written by Kurt Busiek and painted by Alex Ross, Marvels is a four-issue miniseries. It focuses on the thoughts of a news photographer named Phil Sheldon, and therefore shows Marvel's history through his eyes, and the eyes of the public. "The bystanders had seen the stories in the paper - seen them, chuckled and dismissed them. But it's one thing to read about the impossible - "- and another to look it in the face." What would it be liketo live in the Marvel Universe? To live through all the drama, excitement and wonder in the exploits of Captain America, the Sub-Mariner and Spider-Man as a witness rather than a participant? To see the adventures of heroes whose names resonate with legend and wonder, with your own eyes? You're about to find out. Through the viewpoint of neophyte news photographer Phil Sheldon, a man on the edge of World War Two and a new age of living wonders, see these marvels as if for the first time, with new awe, amazement, and a touch of fear. Experience the Marvel Universe from a whole new perspective - yours. The second printing cover does not have an acetate overlay double cover like the original.
