Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek Set to Celebrate 25 years of MARVELS

The Marvels made its debut in 1994, when Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross surprised fans with a new perspective on the Marvel Universe, one that has spanned decades, and now the story continues.

The book will be a standalone story from original creators, Busiek and Ross. Lead character, Phil Sheldon, a photojournalist, who is retired with two daughters, find themselves in the middle of a battle between Mutants and Sentinels, while on vacation in New York. It will take place in the 1970s and feature a new ‘Marvels’ look at the ‘All-New, All-Different X-Men’ from the decade.
