To mark the 25th anniversary of the landmark series Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross, Marvel Comics has already given us Marvels Epilogue and the massive Marvels Monster-Sized Edition hardcover.

Now comes news of a new 2020 series: Marvels Snapshots.

According to Marvel.com, “industry legend Kurt Busiek will bring together incredible creative teams for eight standalone, double-sized issues showcasing Marvel’s most beloved characters from the Golden Age to today.” Alex Ross will provide painted covers for the series.

The first issue will be the World War 2-set Sub-Mariner: Marvels Snapshot #1 written by Alan Brennert and illustrated by Jerry Ordway. According to Brennert:

“I can honestly say that I enjoyed working on this story more than any comics story I’ve done in years. I grew up reading (and loving) Marvel’s Golden Age heroes in the 1960s, in reprints in FANTASY MASTERPIECES. But I never thought I’d have a shot at writing them—especially the All-Winners Squad!—and I’m grateful to Kurt Busiek and Tom Brevoort for providing me the opportunity, and to Jerry Ordway for bringing it all to glorious life.”

Editor Breevort adds:

“The MARVELS SNAPSHOTS books will provide a different perspective on moments throughout Marvel history while also giving a wide range of talent, many of whom are new to Marvel, to play in our sandbox under the expert watch of Kurt Busiek.”

The remaining books in the series — and their respective creative teams — are yet to be announced. Head over to Marvel.com to read the full press release; Marvels Snapshots arrives in comic stores March 2020.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.
