Christopher, you do make an excellent point about the chronology of the story. Hopefully there will be a great way to still tell this story without making people confused over the telling of the story.
I agree that the chronology will be challenging but I'm curious to see what Busiek can do with it. 70s and 80s Marvel is my favourite so I don't think I'll be able to pass it up, even if I have to get my Mom to go to the store in Ottawa and mail it to me in Romania!

I've been a big fan of Busiek projects like Astro City and Marvels, and because of that I've always been surprised to find his regular superhero work so incredibly boring.

Re: MARVELS 2 IS A GO!!!

You should read Superman: Secret Identity, written by Busiek and drawn by Stuart Immonen. It's an Elseworlds story about a young man named Clark Kent, who's grown up basically in our world, with the misfortune of having the same name as a classic comic book character. The story's about what happens when he suddenly develops super-powers, and it's one of the best Superman stories ever, in my opinion at least.
