Marvels (Marvel Premiere Classic)

Marvels - Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross You really would have to know the Marvel Universe to understand some of this, but overall it's an interesting story of a man, Phil Sheldon, a photographer, and his experience of living in a city populated by supereroes and what this does to him and his life. In this story the everyman takes centre stage while the superheroes are in the background, the aftermath of their battles is felt rather than being ignored and the emotions of the characters, feelings of resentment and stress can also be seen. Not being as familiar as I perhaps would like to be with the Marvel universe I'm pretty sure I missed on nuances and in-jokes but I did still enjoy the read.
