Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. The always inventive Gaiman has concocted an unlikely—but fantastically successful—superhero comic that transfers Marvel's classic characters to the Elizabethan period. Nick Fury is still a lethal government operative, but now he's an adviser to Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty is equally reliant on magician and doctor Stephen Strange. X-Men mentor Charles Xavier still shepherds a band of mutant teens, only now he's called Carlos Javier, and the mutants are known, and mistrusted, as "witchbreed." Carlos's mysterious nemesis has taken on a new job: grand inquisitor of the Spanish Inquisition. Peter Parker (here "Parquah") is still a confused but well-meaning teenager who has yet to be bitten by a radioactive spider. Placed in a period landscape (rendered in rich, painterly panels by illustrator Kubert and digital painter Richard Isanove), these familiar characters must grapple with the issues of the day, chief among them the machinations of the evil King James of Scotland. And, in classic superhero style, they must save the world. The improbable combination works remarkably well, as the superheroes' strange abilities adapt to Elizabethan culture. This glorious adventure is peppered with Scott McKowen's gorgeous, moody cover-art woodcuts.

By A Customer on March 15 2005
Format: Hardcover
I truely loved this book, I have been a comic collector and comic fan since as long as I can remember and I must say. Through the last few years with growing older I found myself reading fewer and fewer comics.
When I originall saw Marvel 1602 I was some what hesitant but quite curious initally I picked the book up at a local retailers and just leafed through it looking at some of the art work.
The images of some of Marvels most classic heroes and villans couples with jaw dropping art work forced me to take the book home and give it a read. Apon starting it I really could not put the book down. It was enthraling and did not fail to entertain me for a single moment. I hope that there will be a sequel published in near future.
This one definitly gets my seal of approval.....

Gaiman was right in his comments when he said people would either love the book or hate it. I (obviously) loved the book. I thought its twist on the marvel world was quite imaginative. In a world where its hard to find "new" idea's Gaiman has excelled by using charachters that people would find fermiliar and made a whole new storyline with them that *I personally have never seen before. The storyline is fresh and keeps you from getting bored. The graphics are awesome and although its not always to spot the charachter at first, you will definatley know who it is by the way he/she acts or simply by the name they'v been given. *cough* *cough* "Sir Nicholas Fury" *cough* *cough* But in all seriousness for those who have even casually delved into the world of marvel i suggest a trip back in time with "Marvel 1602".

By Wade A TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 17 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a delight to read. It was a very worded and thick storyline set 400 years in the past. The reworked characters are all done so well and placed so wonderfully that everything seemed to work out perfectly. The book gives nods to the X-men, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, Nick Fury, Doom and the Fantastic Four, Thor, and more are included! Definitely a good sit down read, and not a quick one, for it's a very dialogue driven tale. I do suggest reading this wonderful tale if you enjoy characters you know in parallel world like stories. It's the same, but not.
