MARVEL COMICS #1000 (28 Aug 2019)
Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics #1000 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Kat Calamia; ‘Rama Rating: 9 out of 10): Marvel Comics #1000 is a true celebration of Marvel’s 80-year publication history, and one of my favorite anthology issues of the year. While I admit some skepticism over the book’s one-page story structure, Al Ewing and a host of legendary creators were able to create a cohesive and even emotional story. My favorite of the bunch is Gerry Conway and Greg Land’s MJ narrative as she talks about her feelings towards Gwen’s death. MJ pours her heart out in these few panels, and it was a nice change of pace to see Gwen's death from the perspective of MJ instead of Peter. “We’re Calling Him Ben,” “She,” “The MJ Memoirs,” and “The Celebration Dinner” were also a few standouts from the pack. Marvel Comics #1000 has a story for every type of Marvel fan — it doesn’t only celebrate the past, but gives us a nice glimpse for what’s to come in the future.
