This story was exactly what I was lookng for! The way it is written and illustrated really gives you a sense of reality in an unrealistic world. The drama of the birth of The Human Torch, The epic battles of the Sub Mariner, Human Torch, and Captain America against the evil nazi party in world war II, the earth saving conquest of the Fantastic Four against Galactus and Silver Surfer, and the heartbreak of the most beloved character Spiderman, when the evil Green Goblin sends his first love, Gwen Stacey plummeting from above the tall buildings of a crime ridden city to her untimely death. Oh that goblin.. Silly goblin, tricks are for kids! All of that told through the eyes of a newpaper reporter. A human prospective on inhuman events. Wow, this book makes my stomach bubble uncontrollably!!! Read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the Nook collected version of the book that really kicked off Alex Ross' career. It's easy to see why with the artwork. That being said the way this book shows various milestones in the history of the Marvel Universe is sure to be fun for any long term fan. The main character is a photographer in New York City who gets his start just prior to WWII when the first modern "Marvels" or super beings first start appearing. It continues from there through WWII and up to include important bit from the beginnings of Marvel. Including the FF, Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men and more.
this was very cool, the illustrations were great.
