When Marvel announced that they would be producing original graphic novels (or OGNs, as they all them), I never thought I would be on board to read every single one. But when I saw that the first three were going to feature the Marvel heroes I adore the most: the Avengers, Spider-Man and the X-Men...and have all-star creative teams on board...well, I couldn’t resist.
I reviewed the Avengers outing, Endless Wartime, and even though the book had its cool moments, it was generally lackluster, and didn’t feel...epic enough. Oh well.
Here we are with a double review of the next two entries into Marvel’s OGN library, Spider-Man: Family Business and X-Men: No More Humans.
Two books that tackle their respective franchises quite differently yet still manage to achieve the exact opposite effect that Endless Wartime did.
Confused? Read on, Bleeder Nation, to find out just what the heck I’m talking about.
