• All New Wolverine #3 Review

    If there’s one thing that All New Wolverine is about, that’s family. It’s not really something that the title wears on its sleeve, but more of a quiet insistence that runs as an undercurrent throughout the story. There’s no agonizing or deliberation about how Laura sees Logan anymore. In...
  • New Avengers #4 Review

    Teddy Altman is still King Arthur of Space, and I am still nearly beside myself in delighted and amused joy. Unfortunately, his Prince Consort Billy Kaplan (yes, really) may have been possessed by an evil Cthulhu-like space wizard from the fifth incarnation of the multiverse (we’re currently on the...
  • Angela: Queen of Hel #3 Review

    Marguerite Bennett continues to go wild with her signature epic-comedic style. Angela: Queen of Hel #3 overflows with classical allusions and snarky comics references and non-stop wordplay. Angela continues to battle her way through various Hel-ish trials, accompanied all the way by Sera’s non-stop wit and tongue-in-cheek narration. But all...
  • Ms. Marvel #2 Review

    Jersey City’s embiggening heroine may have done some growing up during the eight-month storyline gap due to Secret Wars, but in Ms. Marvel #2 she faces her biggest enemy yet, straight from the pages of Captain America. That’s right, folks — spoiler alert — Kamala’s taking on HYDRA. If...
  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 2 #3 Review

    Issue #3 of the second volume of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl continues the time-travel shenanigans begun in issue #2. While the past and present storylines don’t mesh quite as well as they did in the previous issue (being as they do sort of collide in the past and all),...
  • Ultimate End #5 Review

    For all that we were promised an explosive, exciting finale to cap off the fifteen-year-long run of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe, Ultimate End has not delivered said end with a bang, a whimper, or even a weak fizzle. Rather, this ending can best be described as landing with an ignoble...
  • Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1 Review

    It’s oddly ironic for a comic whose title provides critical information about the nature of the story it intends to tell to come out at a time when the titles of Marvel comics seem to be at their most meaningless, but Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat isn’t quite so much...
  • Mighty Thor #2

    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...
  • All-New X-Men #2 Review

    All-New X-Men #2 is a slight improvement on the first issue mostly thanks to the well-worn, yet still clever strategy from writer Dennis Hopeless of splitting up characters in a team book into twos or threes for more meaningful character interactions. After he gets imprisoned for beating the Ghost...
