History Of The Marvel Universe #1

I’m a huge history buff-especially when it comes to pop culture and specifically comic books.

That’s why I am so delighted that Marvel Comics has produced a single volume comic book about the history of the Marvel beginning with Fantastic Four #1. The Watcher makes the perfect host of a quick, but very comprehensive, tour of the Marvel Universe beginning with that fateful day Benjamin Grimm Johnny and Sue Storm and Reed Richards boarded a rocket ship and encountered cosmic rays and were transformed into the Fantastic Four.

Briefly the Golden Age of Marvel Comics is mentioned but by in large the book is dedicated to the Marvel Universe since the FF first came on the scene.

Taking art from across the decades, the book successfully summarizes the key players and events that have made up the Marvel Universe since its inception 50 years ago celebrated this year.

Readers will witness the birth of heroes and cosmic altering events up until present day. For those of you who are new to the Marvel Universe this book is an excellent way to catch up on what’s been going on for five decades. This is a ‘must have’ for any Marvel Comics’ fan.
