The Invincible IRON MAN
Volume One

Paperback: 528 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107592
Relive the Birth of the Armored Avenger

Each volume in the Marvel Essentials series reprints over 20 issues of continuity, from the very beginnings of the Marvel Universe, in an incredible black-and-white mega-format.

This first volume in the Essential Iron Man series re-presents the Golden Avengers' adventures from his origin and first appearance in TALES OF SUSPENSE #39 through to issue #72.

The Invincible IRON MAN
The Power of Iron Man
by David Michelinie, John Romita, Jr., & Bob Layton
Marvel Books
ISBN: 087135599X
Stan Lee's armored avenger gets to explore his human side in this collection of early Iron Man stories by David Michelinie in which Tony Stark battles a foe that his armor can not fight the battle for him, alcholoisism and how Tony sinks to the bottom of the bottle and then slowly gets out of it again. Today's comic book writers don't do these type of stories anymore and that's a shame. The book collects "The Invincible Iron-Man" (vol. 1) 120-128.
This is well-told story about Tony Stark's battles against Justin Hammer and his own alcoholism. Drawings of "early" John Romita Jr. are father-like (John Romita Sr.), different from those of today (e.g. "Punisher"). But they are great too.

The Marvel Knights Collection
by Grant Morrison &  J.G. Jones
Paperback: 144 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107819
"We`re always being told that super hero books are nothing but adolescent power fantasies. Fine. Here comes the ultimate adolescent power fantasy!"  So speaks Grant Morrison, writer of the runaway hit comic, MARVEL BOY.

But don't let the name fool you:  This Marvel Boy is no tights- wearing pushover.  Just as classic "Golden Age" characters of the late 1930's and 1940's were re-thought and re-created in the "Silver Age" of the late 1950's and 1960's, so now has this relic of the Cold War ben resurrected, re-designed, and totally re-done

He is Noh-Varr, the youngest member of a diplomatic team of the alien Kree. After voyaging for years, these alien super heroes reach Earth, only to be blown out of the sky. Only Noh-Varr survives, and is captured and tortured by the mysterious Midas Organization. Escaping, he vows vengeance on all mankind. But with Morrison weaving this tale, don`t expect cliche superheroics or a squeaky clean protagonist. Instead, get ready for Dr. Midas, a criminal billionaire who`s so obsessed with Cosmic Rays that he bathes in them, Exterminatrix, who arrives in issue #3 to make life heaven and hell for Marvel Boy, Hexus, the Living Corporation, Bannermen, a trio of U.N. super soldiers whose bodies are laced with adamantium and enhanced by gamma-rays and have we talked about our ticked off protagonist yet?

The Marvel Style began with the Sub-Mariner, says Morrison. And like Bill Everett's Prince Namor, I wanted my hero to be an outcast, a fiery rebel with an appetite for righteous mass destruction. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Spider-Man and --?

The true appeal of the first couple of years of this series was anticipating the wonderful match-ups, catching the first glimpse of their covers, seeing Spider-Man (or sometimes the Human Torch) teamed with another star of the Marvel Universe, both of them in full-throated action-- such as the sight of Spider-Man battling the Werewolf By Night on a bridge in San Fransicso.

The art on MARVEL TEAM-UP was generally quite good, particularly as done by Gil Kane (see his wonderful work with Captain America, Spider-Man and the Gray Gargoyle, one of the best stories in the series). The stars tend to be the more famous characters of the Marvel universe, with Human Torch occasionally sharing the spotlight (as in the case of the classic Human Torch/Iceman dust-up) but there are occasional appearance by some rarely-seen characters such as Brother Voodoo. This is a must-have volume if you are in the mood for a trip down Marvel's memory lane. Where else could one see Spider-Man and the Ghost Rider battle the Orb, a villian whose head is one giant eye...?

Volume One: EARTH X
by Alex Ross, Jim Krueger, & John Paul Leon
Paperback: 388 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 078510755X
It started out as just an exercise. Comic art painter extroardinnaire Alex Ross sketched out some ideas of what some of the greatest Marvel super heroes-Spider-Man, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk-would like in a grim possible future where a terrible experiment has left all ordinary humans with super powers. What would become of the heroes who had been set apart by their strange abilities, which now seemed so commonplace? Thus was born Earth X, one of the strangest and best selling Marvel projects in recent years. Ross' visionary ideas were fleshed out by some of the industries top talents, taking shape in a year-long epic that excited and thrilled comic fans everywhere, and spawned a second series to debut later this year.
In an outpost on the Moon, the robot known as X-51 must watch the dark events as they unfold on the Earth, relating them to the alien Watcher-charged with the responsibility of recording all events on Earth-who has now been rendered blind. We will encounter a Captain America whose cheerful idealism has been replaced by a tight-lipped life of vengeance against his foe the Red Skull; a Spider-Man who has given in to the excesses of middle age and is now no different than the average man, except in his memories; and Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four, the man responsible for the mutation of all humanity, and who in penance now locks himself in the armor of his defeated arch-nemesis, Dr. Doom.

Dark in mood, yet hopeful in its themes of rebirth and redemption, Earth X is an epic tale told on a global tapestry, with humanity itself at stake.
