This short fifth-week event series had one of those things that’s missing from most comic books nowadays: It was fun! Goofy stories, good artwork, and just an all-around enjoyable feel to these tales, using many of the monsters that were the main reason Marvel stayed in business long enough to become Marvel. Nothing too cosmic or too angsty, but just right. It also has a treasure trove of history, with the reprinting of the Marvel Monsters Handbook, and reprinting several original Atlas monster stories from the fifties and sixties. A fun read all around that will remind old-time fans of how good Marvel Comics used to be, and hopefully engender newer fans to take a look back at the good ol’ days.
