New IDW Miniseries will Have the Transformers Meeting My Little Pony

IDW’s latest crossover will feature two major properties that seem like polar opposites, with a My Little Pony and Transformers crossover being created as a four-issue weekly comic book miniseries this May. The crossover comes from a creative team that includes James Asmus, Ian Flynn, Sam Maggs, Casey W. Coller, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Priscilla ...

‘Iron Man 2020 #1’ Comic Review

I must confess to not being the biggest fan of Dan Slott’s Iron Man run, which I find to be a meandering and generic take on Marvel’s armored avenger. However, Iron Man 2020 could be an opportunity for Slott’s run on the character to go down in comics history -- that is if the creative ...

Dawn of X: ‘X-Men’ #1 Comic Review

Jonathan Hickman follows up his epic House of X/Powers of X series with a strong opening to Marvel’s Dawn of X relaunch. The X-Men, and mutantkind as a whole, have entered a new era of prosperity and looming threats. Focusing on X-Men captain Cyclops, Hickman’s relaunched X-Men title is a solid follow-up to Hickman’s weekly ...

‘Superman Year One #3’ Comic Review

Frank Miller’s uneven Superman origin story has come to its inevitable uneven conclusion. Superman Year One’s final issue starts out strong because Miller has a good understanding of the main character, but the narrative goes off the rails when Miller tries to tie the series into his larger Dark Knight Universe. Superman Year One #3 ...

Last Week’s Highlights: ‘Batman #80’ Comic Review

Except for its first chapter, which had lots of pages and very little story, City of Bane has been a captivating read – and the latest installment is no exception. Tom King’s script is largely action oriented, with Batman making quick work of Bane’s brainwashed police force of Gotham hoodlums. After two issues focused on ...

Jonathan Hickman Responds to ‘House of X’ #2 Plagiarism Accusations

When Marvel decided that it was time to reshape the X-Men, the called on famed writer Jonathan Hickman to lead the charge. Hickman, along with Pepe Larraz crafted House of X, a series that not only flips the entire team on its head, it takes one of the franchise's most storied character's and retcons her ...

‘Powers of X’ #1 Review

Writer Jonathan Hickman put forth some bold new ideas in House of X #1, but Powers of X #1 takes his ideas to a whole new level. Structurally and thematically, this may be the writer’s most complex Marvel comic yet. Powers of X takes place in four different time frames, one of which is the ...

‘House of X’ #1 Review

After having epic runs on the Avengers and Fantastic Four, Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men relaunch was eagerly anticipated by comic book readers (yours truly included). House of X #1, the beginning of Hickman’s multi-year plan for Marvel’s mutants, does not disappoint. House of X #1 establishes a brand new status quo for Marvel’s mutants -- and ...

‘Batman: Universe’ #1 Review

I have to admit, Bendis’ first Batman series at DC surprised me. Rather than the urban noir style that he approached similar properties like Daredevil and Moon Knight with, Bendis’ first Batman comic is more in line with The Brave and the Bold cartoon than any current version of Batman. The result is an absolute wonder ...

‘Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds’ #1 Review

After a brief (but not that brief) interruption, Gerard Way’s Doom Patrol series has returned to publication with a new number one. While the numbering may have changed, Weight of the Worlds #1 is both a perfect continuation, and fresh jumping on point for the series. The Easiest way to summarize Weight of the Worlds ...
