Ignoring the usual hype blurb, Kurk Busiek and Alex Ross on a project can only be a good thing

“Anyone. Anywhere. Anytime.” That’s how acclaimed writer Kurt Busiek describes his new ongoing series, THE MARVELS. Alongside artists Yildiray Cinar and Alex Ross, MARVELS will be the most sprawling series ever to hit the Marvel Universe where any characters can show up for adventures that can and will take them anywhere! With the entire Marvel Universe at its disposal, this expansive series will feature everyone from the Marvel Universe’s first heroes to its latest superstars.

“The whole idea of THE MARVELS is to be able to use the whole Marvel Universe — not just all the characters in it, but all the history of it. The sweeping scope of the whole thing,” Busiek said in an interview with marvel. “Big stuff can happen in the Marvel Universe, but we usually see it confined largely to the Avengers in AVENGERS, to the FF in FANTASTIC FOUR, and so on. THE MARVELS is intended as a freewheeling book that can go anywhere, do anything, use anyone. It’s a smorgasbord of Marvel heroes and history. It’s not a team. It’s a concept, or a universe, depending on how you look at it. THE MARVELS features the marvels — all the many and varied characters of the Marvel Universe. The heroes, the villains, the oddities — all of it. There’ll be popular characters of today, there’ll be obscure characters from long ago — heck, there’ll be story threads that take place in the past, or possibly the future. We’re not limited to just the present. And there’ll be new characters, too, from the street-level to the cosmic. There are three new marvels in the first issue, although a couple of them are only seen for a panel or so. But we’ll get back to them. I’d say “the sky’s the limit,” except in the Marvel Universe, there’s a lot going on beyond that sky. And it’s all open to us.”

THE MARVELS #1

Cover by ALEX ROSS
ALL-NEW, ONGOING SERIES!


Kurt Busiek (MARVELS, Astro City) is back, with the biggest, wildest, most sprawling series ever to hit the Marvel Universe, telling stories that span the decades and range from cosmic adventure to intense human drama, from the street-level to the cosmic, starring literally anyone from Marvel’s very first heroes to the superstars of tomorrow. This first issue includes an invasion from orbit, a picnic in Prospect Park, super hero sightseeing in Manhattan, the All-Winners Squad in 1947, Reed Richards during his time in military intelligence, cosmic beings beyond space and time— and that’s only for starters. Featuring Captain America, Spider-Man, the Punisher, the Human Torch, Storm, the Black Cat, the Golden Age Vision, Aero, Iron Man and Thor, and introducing two brand-new characters, all beautifully drawn by Yildiray Cinar (X-MEN, Legion of Super-Heroes, IRON MAN) in the opening act of a thriller that’ll take us across the Marvel Universe…and beyond. Plus: Who (or what) is KSHOOM? It all starts here. And it goes...everywhere.

That must be two of the new characters just above Cap and below Vision on the cover. I don't recognize them. The one on the right looks like Mantis but different uniform.

The one on the right above Cap is Aero she appears in Greg Pak’s Agents of Atlas books and in her own book of the same name that is translated from the Chinese version of Cyclone. She’s a Chinese superhero

So it's an anthology book? Not exactly untrod ground, but it could be cool. If  nothing else, it'll be a chance to spotlight some of the more popular heroes in stand-alone stories as opposed to year long epics with 800 tie-in books that you have to read ALL of if you hope to have any idea what's going on.

If they're smart though, they'll limit Ross' involvement to covers and a special occasion issue once in a while. I mean the man is a brilliant artist, I'll give him that any day of the week, but not necessarily the artist you want on a monthly book.

I wish Ross was doing more than plotting and covers. Still this should be interesting, the only worry is that Busiek may get really obscure, like in did with Marvel Comics 1000
