Return to a world of marvels with a first look at Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross' “Marvels Epilogue” #1
1994’s Marvels is rightly considered a classic of the genre, and yet it oddly doesn’t get brought up much these days. That’s especially weird considering that it was written by Kurt Busiek and illustrated by Alex Ross, a powerhouse duo that you’d be hard pressed to top anywhere. Thankfully, Marvel seems to be turning their attention back on this wonderful limited series, as Busiek and Ross have reunited for an epilogue to the classic tale. Titled-- appropriately-- Marvels Epilogue #1, the 16-page story lets readers back in on the world of Marvels one last time as a now-retired Phil Sheldon and his daughters enjoy a relaxing day in New York City… until it’s interrupted by Sentinels.
You know, as is prone to happen.
Check out the details and a first look at Ross’ gorgeous work below.
