Comic Preview:
Marvel's Namor #1
By Brian Jacks

04.03.03


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."

"Bill and Andi have also granted us a wonderful peak into the life of young Namor," Cebulski continued. "Readers see him start as a mischievous young boy and follow him into manhood, giving us a candid look into Namor's youth that rings true with the Sub-Mariner of today that fans know and love. We're drawn into his life in Atlantis and the personal relationships that shaped him into the fiery hero he is today."

Namor #1 by Bill Jemas & Andi Watson and Salvador Larroca goes on sale April 30 with a cover price of a measly 25-cents. Namor #2 goes on sale May 21, 2003.
