YOU Choose Marvel's Top 75 For 75!
1200 pages. The greatest stories in Marvel's 75 years of publishing (as Timely/Atlas/Marvel). And Marvel is offering us the fans the chance to choose what stories will go in there, from 1939 to Marvel NOW!
It's a hard choice to make. For an Omnibus like this, for a book that should stand in history, I have a feeling that it's going to get weighted with what people have been reading recently -- and there's some incredibly good stuff being done in the 21st century. But should it also have a strong sense of the publisher's past, even though stories written in the 40s just don't have the same, well, logic of 2014?
I have a few choices myself: "The Kid Who Collected Spider-Man." The Galactus Trilogy. Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo's first issue of Fantastic Four. What If #1.
We shall see. It's up to you. 'Nuff said.
