CBR Review: The Marvels Project #8

I recently reviewed The Marvels Project #8 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The Marvels Project began as a promising look at the early days of superheroes in the Marvel universe, starting before the United States had entered World War II, but, as it continued, the story was less coherent and lacked a central purpose. Issue eight offers that payoff based on the historic day of the Pearl Harbor attack, December 7, 1941, juxtaposing that attack with a fictional one made by the Nazis and Atlanteans in Washington at the same time. While an interesting idea and keeping with the real life elements of the characters, it doesn’t pack the emotional impact that it’s designed to, nor the necessary cohesion to bring the entire series together completely."
