Launched in 1994, Marvels was a four-part story that followed news photographer Phil Sheldon between 1939 and 1974, as he experienced several landmark moments in the Marvel Universe, from the birth of the Golden Age Human Torch to the Fantastic Four's first encounter with Galactus. The series also featured appearances from characters from across the Marvel Universe, among them Gwen Stacy, whom Phil befriends before her infamous death. A 0 issue was released later in the year, and featured a retelling of the original Human Torch’s origin from his perspective.

A sequel, Marvels: Eye of the Camera, was released in 2008. Busiek returned as writer, with Roger Stern co-writing the third through sixth issues. Jay Anacleto illustrated that sequel. A darker version of the story, Ruins, was written by Warren Ellis in 1995, and explored a dystopian version of the Marvel Universe.
