Quick Review of Marvelman Classic Primer

I read the first article which was a brief history of Marvelman’s origins and sort of skimmed the rest of the articles and the interview with Mick Anglo. The selling point of this book for me was the artwork. I liked them all, the new and old stuff, but for me “Young Nastyman and Gargunza” by Mike Perkins & Laura Martin and “Young Nastyman” by Khoi Pham & Brian Reber are my favorites.

When Marvel gets around to making original Marvelman stories, I can only hope they don’t make Young Nastyman into their equivalent of Eclipse Comics’ Johnny Bates and he has an entirely different personality.

Recommendation: This has gotten me more psyched for Marvel’s version of Marvelman than anything else so far. Take that for what it is worth.

Flattr this!
