The artwork in Marvels is clearly a stand out feature Though Alex Ross is better known for his work in the also grand Kingdom Come I personally prefer his artwork here where he first worked his unique stylistic magic In my eyes Marvels has some of the greatest illustrations in the genre While Watchmen and Batman The Dark Knight Returns may be the greatest acclaimed graphic novels, I believe that alongside Batman Noel this novel has the greatest artwork style.
