MARVEL COMICS' SNAPSHOTS

Marvel Comics has announced a March launch for Marvel Snapshots, as Kurt Busiek brings together various creative teams for eight stand-alone, double-sized issues showcasing various characters.

Like 1994's Marvels series, Marvel Snapshots will be tales told through the eyes of ordinary people, offering unique insights on the mythos of the Marvel Universe. The series also reunites Busiek with Marvels co-creator Alex Ross, who will be providing with painted covers.

It begins with Sub-Mariner: Marvels Snapshot #1 when novelist and Emmy Award-winning writer Alan Brennert and artist Jerry Ordway unite to tell a story about Marvel's original antihero: Prince Namor. Set during World War II, things kick off with a tale featuring Namor, Betty Dean and the All-Winners Squad.

"I can honestly say that I enjoyed working on this story more than any comics story I've done in years," Brennert said. "I grew up reading -- and loving -- Marvel's Golden Age heroes in the 1960s, in reprints in Fantasy Masterpieces. But I never thought I'd have a shot at writing them -- specially the All-Winners Squad! -- and I'm grateful to Kurt Busiek and Tom Brevoort for providing me the opportunity, and to Jerry Ordway for bringing it all to glorious life.

"I'm enormously proud of Reunion and honored to be the first story published in Marvel Snapshots."

Said Ordway: "When I was offered this project, I jumped at it, being a big fan of the original Marvels book by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross. Getting to draw a Sub-Mariner story set in the 1940s, with appearances by the All-Winners Squad, lets me connect with Marvel's World War II era history, and the work of Subbyfs creator, Bill Everett.

"I've been a Marvel maniac from the age of 10, so this is pretty cool! Alan Brennert wrote a great script ,which fits neatly into the bigger tapestry that is the Marvel Universe. Ifm thrilled to get to play in this sandbox after so many years as an artist."
