Marvel 1985 #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Marvel 1985, Mark Millar's high-concept, long-delayed, formerly-fumetti series, about which I write the following sentences: "The setting is 1985 for a reason: not only was it a more innocent time, for all of us 30-something comic book readers, and for the Marvel Universe as well, but it was also the age of Spielberg -- that cultural moment when 'E.T.' and 'Indiana Jones' were the pinnacle of family entertainment. Millar's "1985" is very much like an 80s Spielberg film: it's Elliott from 'E.T.' meets Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross's 'Marvels.' And it works, almost completely."

I liked it a lot, actually.
