Higher, Further, Faster! The Marvels Are HERE!
The Cosmic Longbox is celebrating the recent release of Marvel Studios’ THE MARVELS – Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, Monica Rambeau, and MORE! This week, we’ll be reviewing eight back issue comics starring characters featured in The Marvels, as well as more of the mightiest maidens to bear the “Marvel” name. We’ll judge these issues with THN’s “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It” rating system, which, to be frank, is LESS than marvelous… There’s no time to waste…IT’S COSMIC COMIC REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT!
