The Marville wiki last edited by BlackPan1her on 06/17/13 09:08AM View full history

Brief Summary

Marville was created because of a publicity stunt between then-Marvel president Bill Jemas, Joe Quesada, and Peter David in a contest called U-Decide, a competition to see who could sell the most issues. Peter David's Captain Marvel series won the contest, and Bill Jemas' contribution was this.

What started as a parody comic, satirizing the current state of the comic book industry as well as Marvel and DC superheroes, shifted gears after the second issue, and became a pseudo-philosophical depiction of God, evolution, and the science vs. religion debate on life.

The series never caught on and was cancelled after 7 issues, and is widely considered to be one of the worst comics ever released.
