Miles and I read Secret Wars, the Marvel comic book series. We loved it. I read it aloud to him every night for a week or two. We loved it. I loved having him experience it for the first time while I read it for the first time in years. I was excited with him.
The story is great– an all-powerful creature called the Beyonder puts a bunch of Marvel super heroes on a distant planet– the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Spider-man. He also puts a bunch of villains–Dr. Doom, Galactus, the Wrecking Crew, Kang, Lizard, Molecule Man, Klaw, Absorbing Man, etc.– on the planet and tells them that whoever wins gets whatever they want in the world. It is really well written. It came out at a time when Marvel was doing a lot of 12-part limited series. Secret Wars was twelve issues and we loved every moment. Very dramatic.
I can imagine myself with Miles in the crux of my arm reading Secret Wars on his bed before going to sleep. It was a great time.
