Review: Marvel Boy, by Grant Morrison

Marvel BoyMarvel Boy by Grant Morrison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I like Noh-Varr. I like his anti-establishment idea, I like that he’s a lone-wolf and that he goes after the guy (Midas) who killed his friends/mentors. I like the attack on Multi-National-Corporations from Grant Morrison. I liked Plex, the Green goo assistant/hive-mind of the Kree Empire that helped Noh-Varr on his mission.
Midas and his daughter were kinda stupid.

I would like to see more of him, and since this is a 14yr old book republished, I know I’ve already seen more of him (During Dark Reign).

On the whole though, this intro is kinda ho-hum, but I did like the main character, so I suppose it wasn’t that bad. In terms of Grant Morrison, it’s very accessible and easy to understand (so if you think GM is too dense and hippy-trippy, maybe try this?)

You won’t miss anything if you don’t read this though. Noh-Varr seems like he could torch Earth if he decided to (and not just funny curse words in flaming ruins).

I feel like this will work for Anne and Jeff’s sons. He’s cool, he kicks ass, has an attitude and doesn’t answer to anyone.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.
