The Mini Marvels are tiny, adorable versions of all your favourite Marvel characters. This book is a collection of comics featuring stories about the Marvel gang as they combat bullies, baddies, and each other. The stories are adorable, and often feature references to some of the most well known Marvel storylines (Civil War). With adorable art and stories this book was a must-read for me.

I absolutely loved this book. It was super adorable. The art is cute an fits the characters well. The comic is written for all ages, so the humour is wide reaching and works well for a series of comics meant to fit a wide variety. The characters are well written, making great reference to the standard versions of the characters.

The stories are all references to stuff that has happened in older comics from the characters. There’s a whole plotline about Spiderman turning into Venom and then Eddie Brock becoming Venom. There’s the Civil War plot called “Civil Ward”. These references are really great and poke fun at the original storylines. I thought this was one of the best things about the stories, as it really carries the humour of the book and makes the book a little more accessible for adult readers.

I loved the character designs. They were adorable child-sized versions of the Marvel characters. I liked that their being children didn’t hinder their superhero abilities. It was also great that because they were kids the adults don’t notice that they’re heroes, the fact that Aunt May warns Peter, dressed as Spiderman, to avoid Spiderman was really funny because it really spoke to how much adults just ignore children sometimes.

The art and humor of this comic are really fantastic. This comic is great for Marvel fans or newbies to the universe. i highly recommend.

Ramble on,
Kimber
