Some of My Friends Read Comics 117 – Marvel 1602, Pt. 2 + Marvels #1


It’s time to continue Marvel 1602! In the last 4 issues of the miniseries, we make our way to America and find out how this universe connects to our regular 616 universe.

But will Gaiman’s 1602 survive? (Spoiler alert: nothing ever dies).

And we also get our long read of Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross really rolling with issue #1.


Next Time: Donald Duck in “Christmas on Bear Mountain” (Scrooge McDuck’s first appearance) and “A Christmas for Shacktown”

Some of My Friends Read Comics 116 – Marvel 1602, Pt. 1 + Marvels #0


Back in the 1600s, there were apparently superheroes in England. I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but I will take Neil Gaiman’s word for it.

He wrote about Marvel 1602 in an 8-issue miniseries that very strangely seems to parallel the Marvel Universe we are already familiar with. We read the first 4 issues and then we started our long read of Marvels with issue #0, which takes place in the 40s.

So much history! My head hurts.
