Kurt Busiek is Just Gonna Go Hog Wild with The Marvels!

Kurt Busiek is probably one of the best comic book writers and world-builders of all time. He’s the mastermind behind Astro City, a masterpiece of superhero comic storytelling that I highly recommend. Now he’s coming back to Marvel comics to do a big “anyone, anywhere, any time” adventure that spans decades!

Behold The Marvels!

Just look at Alex Ross being all fancy!

Specific details on the story are scarce, but Busiek had a lot to say in an interview at Marvel.com. He’s going to use big heroes and obscure heroes, he’s going to tell big stories and small stories. He’s going to look at these characters as people and he’s going to span from the past to the far future.

He’s just going to go big and have fun, and I love that idea!

How about some preview art?

Busiek is also responsible for Marvels back in 1994, another masterpiece of comic book storytelling that focused on the classic Marvel heroes. Honestly, the guy is a legend, and letting him play in the entire Marvel toybox for whatever insane story he has in mind sounds glorious to me!

The Marvels comes out in May, with art by Yildiray Cinar.
