13 Coins #1

Oct 21, 2014

13 Coins gets off to a promising start, as though it felt pretty average on the whole, the opening sequence left me curious as to where this series will go. It's for this reason that I recommend this issue, as it's well worth trying if only for one issue.

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1

Apr 26, 2016

4 Kids Walk into a Bank #1 was a sensational read, getting this new mini-series off to a terrific start. Not only does it give us an engaging premise, but it does so in a fun, light hearted manner, with the creative team introducing us to four intriguing young characters in the process.

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #2

4 Kids Walk into a Bank #2 isn't quite as impressive as the first issue, but that doesn't stop it from being better than most comics on the stands. Moving our narrative forward in a fun, engaging manner, the creative team continue to spin a unique yarn, with there being plenty to leave readers eager for more.

4001 A.D. #1

May 6, 2016

4001 AD #1 is a strong start for the latest Valiant event, with the creative team moving Rai's story forward in an intriguing manner. Whether it's Earth or New Japan, writer Matt Kindt gave us some marvelous developments and along with some powerful visuals it is hard not to praise this issue.

4001 AD #3 is an amazing continuation to Valiant‘s latest event, with the creative team delivering a narrative that was both exciting and full of symbolism. Throughout this, we got some powerful moments, and despite not quite living up to the previous instalment, it more than leaves me eager for the final chapter of this epic tale.

A Game of Thrones #19

Mar 25, 2014

A Game of Thrones #20

Apr 22, 2014

A Game of Thrones #21

Aug 6, 2014

Dynamite's adaptation of A Game of Thrones has been doomed since it began way back in September of 2011, as though it's had the odd flurry of excitement, it's generally missed the energy that made both the novel and the TV series such a hit. Not recommended.

A Game of Thrones #24

Feb 4, 2015

I'm sure that it'll be a relief to most fans that this series is finally at an end, and though I'd love another Game of Thrones comic (assuming it was done right), I think it's best to leave the world of Westeros and the North to HBO and Martin's own series of novels. As for A Game of Thrones #24 itself, I say keep your money, as unless you've been following this series, it's not worth giving it a try now.

Action Comics (2011) #23.2

Sep 14, 2013

This was a truly amazing story, and one of the best that Villains Month has produced so far. Pak did a fantastic job of showing the characteristics of Zod, whilst also showing a slightly different side to him. The story itself was also filled with some brilliant drama, and amazing action, and I'd highly recommend this, and hope that Pak does just as good a job when he takes over Action Comics.

Sep 22, 2013

A brilliant issue that shows that Soule is very capable of creating brilliant Superman stories. The issue itself was also a great prequel to Forever Evil, being very exciting, and suspenseful, also having plenty of drama. The tone was also brilliant with new artist Bermudez doing a brilliant job. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this, especially if you're reading Forever Evil, though don't expect it to be the best Luthor story you've ever read.

Nov 11, 2013

This was an outstanding start for Greg Pak who has once again proven just how well he knows the Superman character, producing an amazing story in the process. The issue would be exciting and suspenseful, also having a lot of depth. It would also be very dramatic and overall is the kind of Superman story that Action Comics deserves. Due to this I'd highly recommend this issue as it's a great opportunity for new fans and old to get into Superman.

This was a disappointing issue, and I expected better things from this issue. I do however still have a lot of hope in this series, and think that the series as a whole will be brilliant, and that this issue will be nothing more than a blip (although I thought that about Avengers vs. X-Men also). I would barely recommend this issue, but would advise patient people to wait and see if it gets better.

Although this issue was better than the rest in the series so far, it was sill far from what I hoped for in this series, but I do hope that this is a turning point. I would recommend this issue alone, but as the series hasn't been brilliant overall, I'd still recommend caution, as it could easily slip back into being poor again, and if so it'd be better leaving it and considering getting the hardback when it's out.

This series has went back to being disappointing, and to be honest I don't have a lot of hope left for it. This issue started very dramatically but most of it was slow, and dull, and overall disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this issue, and would recommend that you wait to find out if the series is good as a whole and get it in trade if so, as so far it's been very disappointing, and frankly a waste of money.

Although better than the last issue, this issue still wasn't to the level of quality I hoped the series would be at. The series finally appears to be getting better, but it's done that before, and I won't hold my breath, only believing it when it happens. I would consider recommending this issue, just for the fact that it features the return of Nick Fury, but besides that I'd still recommend waiting until the end of the series, and if it's overall good getting it in trade.

This series continues to disappoint, and it's a huge shame, as I had so much hope for it. Although this issue itself has some interesting points, the development of the overall story is still very slow. I wouldn't recommend this issue, or the series, and unless it gets dramatically better throughout the remaining of the series I wouldn't even recommend getting the trade when it's out, as the series is over half way through and hasn't progressed much.

Like usual this wasn't anything special, and the series as a whole has bee disappointing. There was however some interesting things in this issue, and it will appeal to some people, just didn't appeal to me. Now I don't know if it's due to me losing faith in this series, but it just continues to not amaze me, and although it's not as disappointing as it used to be, it's still nothing special. I would only recommend this to people who have the series so far, but otherwise would recommend leaving this issue, and the series, as it's generally poor, and when everything's said and done I'm sure it won't have much off an affect on the future of Marvel.

This issue is once again very slow, and dull, and the series continues to be disappointing. Although there were some interesting, and clever things added by Bendis in this issue, I just couldn't get over the fact that this story has been developing at way too slow a rate, with the odd exciting moments being overshadowed by disappointment. I would only recommend this issue to anyone who's already getting the series, as you might as well for three more issues (four if you count Age of Ultron #10AI), but anyone considering getting this at a later date, or getting the trade when it's released, I'd recommend against it.

This was a good way to finish the series, but at the same time it didn't make up for the previous down points during the series, and overall was itself not spectacular. It did however have some action, and excitement, as well as suspense, and drama, something that the series hasn't always had. It also showed that there will be some changes coming, which has me hooked, but still doesn't make up for the fact that this was a seriously poor series. I would only recommend this issue to people who have already been getting the series, as well as others who want to get a teaser for the upcoming changes, as although you should be able to find these changes on the internet, I found it more interesting finding them out through this issue.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 was on the whole a good comic, but one that felt hindered by the Standoff crossover. Despite giving us some decent development to the event, the overall tone ultimately felt mixed, with their bound to be some confusion for both casual readers not interested in Marvel‘s latest event, and those just picking this up for it's tie-in purpose.

The action was also perfect, being exciting, and explosive, with great art from Quitely Due to all this I'd highly recommend this story to anyone, whether you're a Superman fan or not, and if you are a Superman fan and haven't read this, then you certainly need to, as it is definitely amongst the best Superman stories ever.

Amazing Spider-Man #698

Dec 23, 2012

This was a good issue but if you like action and adventure in Spider-Man stories, so far this one probably won't be for you. I would recommend this issue as with issue 700 getting closer by the issue you wouldn't want to miss the last few issues and although this issue was more of a setup for things to come, the things revealed in this issue are worth reading, whether you like them or not.

Amazing Spider-Man #699

Feb 26, 2013

A truly phenomenal issue and I'm really looking forward to the 700th issue now. Although this issue wasn't perfect, and more serious than most Spider-Man stories, it was still very good, and very gripping which is needed in a build up to a big story. I would highly recommend this issue to anyone, as it gives a lot of insight to what might happen in the 700th issue, and with something big about to happen to Peter you don't want to miss it.

Amazing Spider-Man #699.1

Feb 26, 2013

This was a good issue, but it maybe would have been better to have shown Morbius escape the Raft at the end of 699, or the start of 700, and have a point one issue for the Morbius ongoing series to tell his origin. Other than that this was a very good issue, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Morbius, but will warn that it doesn't really connect much with the upcoming 700th issue.

A brilliant start to this new series with Aaron showing some of his best X-Men work for a long time. The issue would do an amazing job of re-introducing Nightcrawler, with some very fun and exciting moments throughout, all of which were made even more fun and exciting due to McGuinness' fabulous artwork.

Jun 8, 2015

Barb Wire #1 is a refreshing return for the '90s bombshell, as though this first issue isn't quite as impressive as I'd hoped, it's more than worth the purchase. It's explosive and eccentric plot twists also leaves great speculation moving forward, with this fan for one being excited for #2. So come July 1st, go to your local comic book shop and pick up the beauty.

The creative team also allow for some gripping last minute character development and despite there being some questionable dialogue we were given a softer side to our titular character.

I'd probably say yes, especially if you've already been following the series. I'd also recommend it to newer readers, and people who don't like Simone's run (although I'm not one of them I know there are some, all series have lovers, and haters) as this is a very different type of writing.

I would highly recommend this as it was fun, and interesting, but if you are seriously strapped for cash it's easily missable, as although it references Year Zero I doubt that it will affect it (especially considering Year Zero's meant to have happened prior to the start of this series).

As well as being exciting, this issue also had another brilliant reference, and the dialogue throughout the issue was outstanding. Cause of all this I would highly recommend this issue, as well as the previous issue, and as much of the series as you can get, as it truly is one of the best DC series out the now, and with Zero Year just round the corner, it's the best time to jump aboard.

I would easily recommend this issue to anyone, whether you want to get one of the better Requiem issues, or a fan of the series already, as it's a very emotional issue.

This was a terrific issue, and although the pace has been slowed down a bit, the endgame to Morrison's Batman run looks to be heating up, and the shock, and interest of this issue has me real excited for the final few issues. I would highly recommend this as well as the entire series, as although not Morrison's best Batman story, it has been a brilliant one to end his run.

Sep 6, 2013

Although I'm not necessarily happy about the series taking a detour, this was a very fun, and entertaining issue, and a nice change from the normal dark mood that this series has had as of late. I also loved seeing the Batman of Japan again, and how he worked with his partner Canary, and although the issue did have it's flaws, it was overall very fun, and thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone that's been getting this series so far, but would recommend caution towards other readers, as although I enjoyed it, you may not, as it's the type of issue that you either like, or hate.

This was a fantastic issue, and the perfect way to end the series, as although it may not have been as shocking as I expected, it had the right tone, and atmosphere that this issue needed. It also had some great action, and dialogue, as well as some brilliant symbolism, and I will sadly miss seeing Morrison work on Batman, though great things must end. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this issue, as whether you've been following this series, or enjoyed a few stories from Morrison's run, it's worth seeing how it ended.

This was a great opening issue, and probably one of the best I've seen for a while. Pak really understood both character's, whilst adding his own uniqueness to them, which I loved.

Death Of Wolverine #1

Sep 4, 2014

Death of Wolverine has so far proven to be the kind of story Logan needs prior to his death, and if it continues in this fashion it could easily become a classic. The issue itself is also worth the extra money, as bar the fancy cover, you also get sketches from McNiven, an interview from Wolverine creator Len Wein, and a directors cut featuring Soule's original script. Highly recommended.

A brilliant set-up for the upcoming Forever Evil: Arkham War series, but not the best Scarecrow issue character wise.

It was however simply too much set-up, which although interesting meant that it wasn't anything special, and due to this I'd only recommend the issue to anyone who's getting Arkham War when it's out, and wouldn't recommend it to someone wanting an amazing Scarecrow story, or a story that shows the best of Scarecrow's characteristics.

Five Weapons #10

Jul 30, 2014

Five Weapons comes to a premature end but does so in an exciting way. I for one am upset that Robinson couldn't reach his expected finish, and it will be a series I will miss. Just goes to show the importance of independent backing. Highly recommended.

Flash (2016) #21

Apr 26, 2017

The Flash #21 continues to flesh out the new mysteries that have arisen within “The Button” crossover, as despite the main narrative still being put to one side, the story we get is nonetheless enthralling. That said the confined time frame and lack of overall development does prevent this from matching the sheer quality of the first issue, but still gives us more than enough reasons to continue reading one.
