Marvel's Namor #1
By Brian Jacks
With a late-breaking artistic replacement, Marvel's upcoming Namor ongoing series may have gotten off to an eventful start, but with veteran artist Salvador Larroca now firmly installed as penciler, and with co-writers Bill Jemas and Andi Watson, the book seems poised to be one of 2003's most interesting new titles. And with a cover price of just 25-cents for Namor #1, Marvel says every comic fan can be in on the surprise.
"Namor #1 has surpassed everyone's expectations on every level," said editor C.B. Cebulski. "Salva has crafted an undersea world that is mesmerizing to look at. Mixed with Danny Miki's fine inks and J.D. Smith's amazing color palette, Prince Namor's Atlantis kingdom truly comes alive. The characters and action flow off the pages into the hands of the reader."
