A little more than a decade ago, Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross changed our perception of the Marvel Universe forever. Today, we re-examine Marvels, and determine that you should read it now.

Beautifully painted by Alex Ross, the Kurt Busiek written story focuses on Phil Sheldon, a photojournalist in the Marvel Universe. We get to watch him age alongside the Marvel U in real-time, and witness the birth of mutants, the wedding of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl, and countless other classic Marvel moments. The book holds up tremendously well, and is a shining example of what makes comic books such a great storytelling medium.
So we hear you’re looking for something to read. That’s great because we’ve got a ton of recommendations on what comics you should be checking out. Every week we’ll pick out one gem from the longboxes or trade shelves that you absolutely cannot miss. We’re talking mainstream, indie, full storylines, single issues, and beyond. If there’s a comic we enjoy that we think you will too, you’ll hear all about it on Read This Now!
