Marvels is a graphic novel that takes a simple concept- witnessing major happenings from marvel comics from the perspective of a simple newspaper phoitographer- and, through excellent execution, turns it into a rather literary and pensive exploration of the genre. While the story itself is pretty great, Alex Ross’s hand-painted art is absolutely superlative, and ads a grounded sense of reliability and drama to the unfolding events.
