Marvel Comics celebrates Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross’ ‘Marvels’ in style this February



Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of MARVELS!

Marvels is without a doubt one of the classic comics in any comic book era. The book not only changed the way we think about heroes, but it was a standout book by two of comic book’s greatest creators. Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek did a fantastic job, just read our recent review of the Marvels Remastered to see, and it was created 25 years ago. Marvel Comics is celebrating the anniversary with a new annotated edition of Marvels as well as various variant covers gracing their current books between January and March. The art is done by none other than Alex Ross and will be on Fantastic Four #6, Tony Stark: Iron Man #9, and The Immortal Hulk #15. Check those out here:
