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 ...

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 ...

Pearl #1 Review

Brian Michael Bendis is at his best when writing crime comics and with Michael Gaydos he has produced a promising new mini-series for his Jinxworld imprint. Pearl is about a tattoo artist who unknowingly gets involved with the yakuza, entering a world of crime and murder. This is not the life she has always known ...

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. All this death and build-up behind made readers curious as to why Marvel's greatest mutants were being hunted down. Now the truth is starting to ...

Fantastic Four #1 Review "This was a good read with great character work, mostly impressive art and an interesting back-up feature. The Fantastic Four are back and this first issue is a sign of good things to come.  A highly recommended read." Rating: 4/5 Read full review here. Sandman Universe #1 Review "It is essentially ...

The Sandman Universe #1 Review

Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is a classic of the comics medium, a mainstream series that garnered immense critical acclaim and a devoted fan-base. The writer was allowed to end the series, and his creation Dream, on his own terms in 1996, after which elements of the series continued to appear on occasion in the DC ...

Fantastic Four #1 Review

Dating back to 2015, the Marvel Universe has not felt whole – as if something essential was missing from its publishing line. That feeling of incompleteness has just been repaired because Marvel’s first family has had their long-awaited return, courtesy of Dan Slott and Sara Pichelli. The Fantastic Four are back (sort of, more on ...

The Seeds #1 Review This is not a comic everyone will enjoy. It is a dense and slow paced read that delves heavily into contemporary themes. Nocenti’s script is socially conscious, covering subjects such as the poor state of news media and people’s obsession with the small devices in their pockets. The use of the ...

Comic Report: 07/25/2018

So, these are my thoughts on last week's new comic books. My criticisms and praise of this week's offering will be released a couple days after new comic book day, with this article being an anomaly (hopefully). So enjoy reading about comic books that you've probably already tucked away safely in your long boxes. Action ...

So Mathew and his family decided to go on vacation for the first two weeks of July and he asked me to cover the comic report this week. So, without further-a-do, here are reviews of all the comics I read this week (not all the ones that came out). Batman #50 Review The plot details ...

The Sentry #1 Review

Jeff Lemire has returned to Marvel for the launch of an intriguing new book that features one of the publisher’s most underutilized characters. The Sentry’s new ongoing series is a promising start to what may be a classic Marvel Comics series. Introduced in Paul Jenkins and Rick Veitch’s Marvel Knights mini-series before becoming a prominent ...
