I was a little disappointed in the second issue of History of the Marvel Universe, but I’m glad I continued on with History of the Marvel Universe #3. The art by Javier Rodriguez is really stunning, with incredibly dynamic page layouts and is a great reflection of the breadth of the Marvel visual style.
This issue follows the chronology of the Marvel Universe from the start of the Marvel age of comics, through to the early peak of Claremont’s X-Men run. This issue started fleshing out the stories Marvel fans are saturated with, including the first stories featuring Spider-Man, Daredevil and The Hulk. It’s familiar territory for me, but the way the story was told kept it captivating.
From the Fantastic Four to the Death of Phoenix, witness the awe and majesty of the beginnings of the Modern Marvel Universe!History of the Marvel Universe (2019) #3
