By DJ Joe Sixpack HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 6, 2010
Format: Hardcover
"Mythos"
Written by Paul Jenkins
Illustrated by Paolo Rivera
(Marvel Comics, 2008)
--------------------------------------------
A fun series of slightly-modernized retellings of several iconic Marvel origin stories -- Spider-Man, Captain America, The Fantastic Four, Hulk, Ghost Rider and the X-Men. Jenkins adds a light, carefree touch to these venerable characters, giving several players (Uncle Ben, et. al.) a bit more personality than the early 1960s originals, and each story is pretty fun to read. These origin stories are "ret-conned" (reimagined) as much as they are fleshed out a bit and lightly updated, mostly by adding more contemporary touches, such as having Spidey perform on the Conan O'Brien show rather than Ed Sullivan. But the basic explanations of who these heroes are and how they came to be remains the same. Paolo Rivera's artwork -- watercolor paintings based on models and photographs -- is generally evocative and full of life. Occasionally his figures look too clearly replicated from life -- staged, a bit stiff -- but for the most part he has a kinetic, fluid feel, and smart use of color that combine to make his artwork quite nice. This isn't a big-concept game changer book (thank goodness!) but it is a fun new spin on some classic Marvel tales. Definitely worth checking out. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)

As a fan of Paola Rivera's work, I was struck with his use of technique to be both expressive and tightly rendered in his interpretaions of the story. Each story stood out as a unique tribute to these classic comic book characters.
