Uncanny X-Men #3 Review

Uncanny X-Men #3 is a mixed bag. One the one hand it does have some very enjoyable sequences, but it also suffers from a weak plot structure and a disregard for character development. The action sequences are big and this comic emphasizes the superhero fun one can have reading an X-Men comic; for example, watching the ...

The Green Lantern #1 Review

Following the epic conclusion of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, the titular character makes his return, now under the stewardship of legendary comics writer Grant Morrison. Working with Liam Sharp, one of the most innovative artists at DC Comics, the Scottish born writer has created a premiere issue that serves as a re-introduction ...

‘Wonder Woman Earth One: Volume 2’ Graphic Novel Review

DC’s Earth One line has released the long-awaited second installment of Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s Wonder Woman Earth One Trilogy. How Was it? Volume Two does not quite measure up to Morrison’s other character defining work, but makes for an enjoyable read. A quick summary: Following the events of Volume One, Diana finds herself ...

Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #310 Review

This issue marks the end of writer Chip Zdarsky’s time on the series, and the appropriately titled ‘Finale’ is the perfect cap for his run. 'Finale' is about Spider-Man encountering a budding young criminal and trying to help him become something better. Interspersed between the events of that story is interviews with different people about ...

Return of Wolverine #1 Review

After eighteen issues of prelude comics, a dozen ‘post-credits scenes’ and a presence in Marvel’s latest cosmic event – Wolverine is truly back. The road to this book was unnecessarily long and complex, but this issue should make it a worth all the time and effort, right? Wrong. Opening in a dark cave with an ...

Bully Wars #1 Review

Bullies are a kid’s worst nightmare… beyond horrible teachers, school work and cleaning your messes. They make your life miserable and turn what should be a rewarding experience (an education) feel like the eighth circle of hell.  The classic set up is the bully and the victim, with the victim working to overcome the bully. ...

Asgardians of the Galaxy #1 Review

In the absence of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Angela has formed the Asgardians of the Galaxy – defending the known realms until the popular franchise is relaunched next year. Tying into the events of Infinity Wars where the usual suspects are being killed or turned evil left and right, Bunn and Lolli tell an ...

Isola #5 Review

One of Image’s most beautiful comics has brought an end to its first chapter, and it was a satisfying conclusion. Fletcher follows up the cliff-hanger from last month with a worthy follow-up filled with suspense and heart. The basic premise is that with the Queen injured Rook must do what she can to save the ...

Hunt for Wolverine: Dead Ends #1 Review

This comic is barely a story. It is an epilogue that summarizes the outcome of each Hunt for Wolverine mini-series and ends with a tease for what’s to come in Return of Wolverine. Reading this comic -- up until the end where something actually happens -- felt like scrolling through a Wikipedia article about Wolverine’s return ...

With a promising story and a script that perfectly balances action with intrigue, Rosenberg seems to be moving in the right direction for the next Punisher classic." Rating: 4/5 Read the full review here. Royal City #14 Review "The ...

Royal City #14 Review

What is the perfect antidote to the past? To all the mistakes you made that continue to haunt your present and the lies that have begun to define you? Jeff Lemire doesn’t have that fix all cure, but Royal City’s finale does point readers in the right direction. The Pike family saga has been brought ...

The Punisher #1 Review

A new era has begun for the Punisher -- one that comes after the unique period where Frank Castle was briefly a murderous Iron-Man knock-off. But now Marvel’s favorite mass-murderer is back in a new series to exterminate crime the old-fashioned way. A dark, politically conscious crime thriller is what Rosenberg’s script delivers and it ...
