Mini Marvels is an all-ages comic book written and illustrated by Chris Giarrusso and published by Marvel Comics. The comic has been published in the form of back-ups in other comic books as well as original one-shots and trade paperback collections. The comics are a humorous depiction of the Marvel heroes as children of various ages, sometimes parodying storylines from the mainstream Marvel universe.

Bullpen Bits[edit]

The Mini Marvels were originally in a comic strip called "Bullpen Bits", published in Bullpen Bulletins. They now can be viewed in several Mini Marvels trade paperbacks.

Running Gags[edit]

  • Hawkeye often complains about being in Captain America's shadow
  • Hulk, Red Hulk, and original character Blue Hulk, often get into various adventures
  • Daredevil is always facing the wrong direction.
