It begins here - a series of specials that show us Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, all through the eyes of ordinary people! Project curator Kurt Busiek (Marvels, Astro City) has brought together an amazing assemblage of talent to bring you a total of eight new and unusual viewpoints on Marvel history and Marvel heroes, two per month for the next four months. To kick it all off, best-selling novelist and Emmy Award-winning TV writer Alan Brennert (L.A. LAW, TWILIGHT ZONE) and superstar artist Jerry Ordway (All-Star Squadron, Crisis on Infinite Earths) to tell a story of Marvel's debut superstar: Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner. It's 1946, and the boys are back from World War II. But they haven't left the battlefields behind, as reporter Betty Dean discovers when she and Namor reunite for an outing at Palisades Park, only to find themselves under attack. Also featuring the All-Winners Squad. A dramatic, unexpected and revealing tour through the Marvel Universe by a cornucopia of amazing creators. Rated T+

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


The first of the 'Snapshot' books curated by Alex Ross, Betty Dean gives us a glimpse into the mind of Namor post WWII, and it isn't pretty.

Superhero PTSD over the holocaust set in a theme park may not seem like typical Marvel fare. It isn't. Not better or worse, but different, and different wins the day. Beautiful art by Jerry Ordway provides a big part of the lift, and kicks things into overdrive when the All-Winners Squad appears. You could spend hours looking at the Whizzer's comings and goings.


I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
