    The Mighty Thor #2 Review

    It’s Loki – but not as you knew him. Or maybe it is. While Mjolnir may not have changed hands yet again, there’s no denial that this issue is Loki Laufeyson’s story – making his All-New, All-Different Marvel debut in a tale that writer Jason Aaron claims is a...

    Extraordinary X-Men #3 Review

    Extraordinary X-Men sometimes feel a slog to wrap your head around, not least because the characters themselves have yet to catch a break. Following the abduction of Ilyana Rasputin by Mister Sinister at the climax of last issue, the X-Men school’s new residence in the hell dimension of Limbo...
  • ANADA #2

    All-New, All-Different Avengers #2 Review

    Last month’s All-New, All-Different Avengers’ launch ended up feeling rather same-old, same-old for me, regrettably. (Although seriously, they set themselves up for that putdown with the title alone.) Forced dialogue, a distracted focus and a forgettable villain all make a return with #2, resulting in an issue with a...
  • Silk #1

    Silk #1 Review

    There was a part of me that was genuinely worried that Silk wouldn’t survive the post-Secret Wars relaunch. Marvel’s been throwing a lot of things from the Spider-Man franchise out in the market in the last 12 months and seeing what sticks (as it were, damn spider jokes) and...
  • Extraordinary X-Men #2

    Extraordinary X-Men #2 Review

    So Extraordinary X-Men didn’t necessarily get off to the best start last month, did it? Nothing says ‘get excited for the latest chapter in the X-Men saga!’ like ‘we’re all going to die and this is the end…’ It often feels like the X-Men deserve a break, if only...
  • The Mighty Thor #1

    The Mighty Thor #1 Review

    I’d like to begin with my red flag from this issue. Russell Dauterman? I see what you’re doing and it’s not big and it’s not clever. Behold, Doctor Strange. *eyerolls* Besides that, The Mighty Thor is pretty darn uplifting; a bold return to the successful chemistry of Thor with...
  • All-New All-Different Avengers

    All-New, All-Different Avengers Review #1

    Did you know that Captain America is now a black man? What about Thor being a woman? Miles Morales being part of the ‘616’ Marvel universe? (Oh and Iron Man doesn’t have any money anymore.) Chances are you’re aware of (at least some) of these revelations because Marvel PR...
  • Extraordinary X-Men #1 Review

    For a franchise that’s meant to be at the heart of the Marvel universe, Marvel editorial seems to spend a lot of time explaining to interviewers that the X-Men aren’t in danger of permanently disappearing. However you can see where people get that idea from reading Extraordinary X-Men #1,...

    Inhumans: Attilan Rising #5 Review

    One of the key marketing messages Marvel has repeatedly tried to hit home with Secret Wars is that ‘these stories matter’. Aiming to combat criticism that the four five six eight month event is merely a collection of ‘What if?’ stories distracting from main continuity, Marvel has been excessively...
