SynopsisWHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH ONE MONTH TO CHANGE THE WORLD? An all-star creative roster brings you a weekly Marvel event! Featuring Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the Avengers! In a world of unlikely heroes, Dennis Sykes is about to become Marvel’s unlikeliest. Banker by day, struggling parent by night, and unhappy about it all. But when a tragic turn of events gives Dennis a 30 day death sentence, he discovers his accident comes with super-powers. And as the weeks in Dennis’ life tick down, he sets out to leave a mark one way or the other – – even if he has to go through Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the Avengers to do it. Everyone is the hero of their own story…but not every hero is a good guy.

In short, we need more comic books like this one. A brief spin off of The Heroic Age flag, One Month To Live (also known as 1 Month 2 Live) has been a heart wrenching, powerful tale. It’s rare that we see the Marvel Universe act as a group, working together to help someone, as well as inspiring them. Yes, the book does have it’s bizarre moments; Wolverine in particular feels a bit too much like he’s in a children’s Choose Your Own Adventure book, but it’s still a strongly written book that I’m enjoying the hell out of. I’m just curious to see how this one ends, and how it will affect the Marvel Universe as a whole.
