Mini Marvels February 15, 2008

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Comics.

If you collected Marvel comics back in the late nineties, you may recall a series of lighthearted comic strips appearing in each installment of Bullpen Bulletins. These “Bullpen Bits” featured pint-sized (kiddified) versions of Marvel’s pantheon of superheroes in various gags or humorous situations. Akin to Spider-Ham before them, these Mini Marvels were a lot of fun, especially for the die-hard Marvel Zombie.

Amazingly, it turns out that the Mini Marvel strips are already accessible online! Chris Giarrusso, the series writer and artist, has all sixty-two strips, the full “Animated Hawkeye Trilogy”, and the complete Giant-Size Mini Marvels comic book available on his website, ChrisGComics.com. With plenty of other great stuff there as well, the site is well worth a look-see and proves once again that sometimes taking a humorous dig at characters we all know and love can be just as entertaining as the real thing.
