A brilliant love letter to the early days of Marvel Comics, McDonnell pulls from multiple titles and stories to create an all new meta-story, juxtaposing his lifelong love of comics with the characters and creators that first sparked his imagination as a kid. If you're a fan of Marvel, especially the early years, this is an absolute must read.

A sweet story of a young Jane Goodall, and how the things you love as a child can shape you.

Self-indulgent pap.

Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell takes a pair of scissors to a bunch of 1960s Marvel comic books to cobble together a half-assed story about Dr. Doom's new invention to spread negativity waves throughout the world, causing a bunch of superhero infighting and setting Uatu the Watcher and Reed Richards on a quest to bring back peace and calm. Between the panels written by Stan Lee and illustrated by the likes of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, McDonnell self-inserts with some scenes from his own childhood, plasters in a bunch of inspirational quotes, and appalls with his own scribbled renditions of the superheroes with the stated intent to "capture the feeling of childhood."

Looks like garbage. Reads like garbage. Must be garbage.
