Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross’ Marvels series is 25 years old, which of course makes those of us who bought the series when it originally landed on the comic book stand feel even older… but I digress. To celebrate, Marvel is releasing Marvels Annotated, and covering a number of upcoming comics with Marvels inspired variant covers.
MARVELS ANNOTATED #1 (OF 4)
ALEX ROSS & KURT BUSIEK (W) • ALEX ROSS (A/C)
VIRGIN VARIANT COVER BY ALEX ROSS

Prepare to relive Marvel’s Golden Age from a whole new point of view as Phil covers the superhuman sightings of the 1930s and 1940s — from the terror caused by the Human Torch’s epic clash with the Sub-Mariner to the patriotism stirred by the debut of Captain America and more! Packed with extras and completely remastered, you don’t want to miss this unique look back at the MARVELS phenomenon! Collecting MARVELS #0-1.
