EARTH X (1999), by Jim Krueger and John Paul Leon

Earth X

R. Tim Morris’ Rating: 10/10

** spoiler alert **

My favorite Marvel Graphic Novel of all time! Ideally, readers should feel comfortable with a LOT of Marvel history before venturing into this alternate reality tale and what they’ll find is a bold new take on much of what we thought we knew. Reed Richards hiding in the guise of Doctor Doom? The Watcher on the brink of death because Black Bolt didn’t want him to see what was coming? Planets as eggs for space-faring Celestials? There’s so much fresh material here, all gorgeously drawn by John Paul Leon, it’s the Marvel Universe told like never before. A pleasure to read over and over again. The Alex Ross covers and character designs are a bonus too.
