    Yes it's got tons of mediocre stuff - it's a total marketing ploy to hook you on as many single-issue books as possible. However, it's got two awesome Bendis stories - just the right amount of comic relief to make you work harder for the attention of the epic work. However, after Be...

    Per usual, the Bendis ain't bad (though one can sense that someone's tightened up the leash on digressions and flights of dialogue), and the rest is utterly forgettable. However, despite being jaded from reading comic books for 20+ years, I was nevertheless astonished that Marvel wo...

    Evil/crazy Norman Osborn (The Goblin) has been defeated and replaced by Steve Rogers (original Capt. America). The Superhuman Registration Act has been repealed and it is no longer illegal to be a super hero. Basically, the Marvel universe is back to normal. New teams are being formed...

    So this is what it feels like to fall in love with comics again. After a darker time in the Marvel 616 universe, Marvel?s Heroic Age ushers in a more hopeful, more triumphant, optimistic era and this volume has several first issues launched or relaunched for this era. Readers get a g...

    This was just little snippets of different story lines, with no real story arc to connect them all together. Some things I really liked a lot, and will look for more in those series, like Avengers Academy and The Incredible Hercules, The New Prince of Power. I also liked the Hawkeye an...

    "Heroic" REPRINT! is what they shoulda called this, ( I am thinking, half-way through it. ) ... UPDATE ...AAAAaaand halfway through is where I stopped. It is NOT that there is a lack of high quality writing and art, it is just that, it is nothing but a reprint trick to ...

    It's like a whole bunch of movie trailers- we get a couple of pages from many different comic books (what's up with Mockingbird? what's Amadeus Cho up to? Find out in their respective titles! etc.). Fully a quarter of the collection is Marvel Encyclopedia entries- which can probably be...

    It all started after watching The Avengers. I had already watched the previous Marvel movies and loved them and The Avengers. I needed this to make me feel better about knowing where all the characters came from and fed my obsession a litttle more, if I say so myself. It's gotten me a ...

    I liked this because it introduced me to new comics and since they were all in the same general time frame, you get context for what's going on. Some of the stories didn't interest me but some of them I want to continue. I recommend this if you're looking to get into the Heroic Age but...

    A collection of the introductory issues emcompassed by Marvel's Age of Heroes theme. The stories themselves bridge from okay to good, but many of these stories have been collected in their own titles trades since the release, making this trade a bit redundant. This is especially so con...

    It's pretty much a tease? It's a collection of first issues of the Heroic Age with several shorts and some encyclopedia info, so isn't very satisfying in any case. But I guess it's a good overview? ...
