Marvel’s Voices: Comunidades #1 is a celebration of the many Latin characters of Marvel.  The book features a collection of stories focusing on each character, as well as some nice extras like interviews with the writers and artists, and a history of the character White Tiger (which is interesting and makes you wonder why the character hasn’t been used more). Below is a summary of each story in Marvel’s Voices: Comunidades #1, including the featured character, the title of the story, the creative team, story synopsis, and my score for each:

Final Thoughts

Marvel’s Voices: Comunidades #1 lets each Latin character in the Marvel pantheon shine and gives a wonderful look into Latin culture.  I found the Ava Ayala (White Tiger) story and the Nina the Conjuror story the gems of the book.  Nina the Conjuror seems like a fascinating character that I hope to see again in the future.
