Marvel Comics Universe and History Of The Marvel Universe #1 Spoilers and Review follows.
From Before Avengers 1,000,000 BC To…
…A Pre X-Men Wolverine!
The book opens with a creators’ credits page.
It appears that the storytelling method for this limited series is established early on.
Its Galactus telling an adult Franklin Richards “everything” upon request.
Some of the history covered includes Avengers 1,000,000 BC with…
…a final page ending on James Howlett pre Wolverine.
While I like the idea of exploring the history of the Marvel Universe to make it more clear and cohesive, I don’t like the fact that its just narration by Galactus. That storytelling method gets boring quickly. The annotations are a nice touch to end the issue, but its dense narrative. I think this may read well as encyclopedia of sorts when the whole limited series is collected, but I didn’t like the first issue at all. The pencils were bland, but the inking was sharp and the colors were vibrant. 3 out of 10.
