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 ...

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.

A dark, politically conscious crime thriller is what Rosenberg’s script delivers and it ...

Extermination #1 Review "While initially opening with a great story structure, the issue fails to make a case for why this time travel story should stand out among the many in X-Men canon. It needs to prove why people should pay attention to it, beyond finally solving a nearly decade old time paradox." Rating: 3/5 ...

Extermination #1 Review

The teases at the end of various X-books showed the future X-Men being systematically destroyed by advanced sentinels in the distant future, one  where the time displaced X-Men are adults.
