• 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),...

  • Pretty Deadly #7 Review

    In my review of the last issue of Pretty Deadly, I mentioned that the story immediately showed itself as a race against time once Fox made the deal to Verine that Cyrus had until the moon was full again to make it home before he took Sarah. Well, the...
  • 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...
  • Batman & Robin Eternal #12 Review

    Batman & Robin Eternal may seem like an odd title to pick out to be a moment for sober reflection, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that this is the territory that the title and its architects have staked out for it. As this issue in particular dives deeper than...
  • Fight Club 2 #8 Review

    For well over a decade a major question hovering over a certain segment of the comics readership has been who would step up to capture the legacy of The Invisibles as Morrison had originally intended. As discussed in my exploration of Black Mask’s Young Terrorists, he wanted the general...
  • 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...
