This review is from: Marvel Now! Omnibus (Hardcover)
As a forty something year old it's safe to say that my prior experience of Marvel Comics was gleaned from its output in the 1970's.Like so many who found youthful enjoyment in the exploits of The Amazing Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk, getting older somehow got in the way of enjoying the escapism.Following the overwhelming success of Marvels 'Avengers Assemble' and (in a state of semi-retirement) having the free time to do so, I decided to catch up on the Marvel universe as it currently stands. Given that I can be harshly critical, I have to admit that after reading Marvel Now, the current renderings of the company's finest remain as absorbing and exciting as ever. Though somewhat pricey, what you get in Marvel Now is an eclectic mix of introductory titles, all of which are wonderfully scripted and deftly illustrated. That Marvel continues to evolve its characters is a testament to its love of the genre and, as an introduction to its current crop of titles, this book is wholly indispensable.
