Read from April 26 to 27, 2012

There are too many things to say about this series. It is, in all reality, the essential story to be told about the Marvel Universe: it is the outsider looking in, seeing all the political and social ramifications that the comics implied while being created but which so many people glossed over but in retrospect; it is what we feel as historically aware readers being played out for the laymen. This is what you want people to understand when you tell them that you love a comic book character, and them understanding why that makes sense. This is the book that ends the argument that is comics versus art, nerdom versus reality, and mythology versus understanding. This is a story that bridges all the misconceptions of genre fiction and brings it into just fiction: this is a story, without pre-concieved notion of story, and you follow it thusly.
