    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Dec 22, 2008

    Dark ReignNew Nation serves up a nice taste of the new Marvel offerings, but it is far from essential. Just know what you are getting into if you choose to buy it. I found it to be worthwhile, especially considering that it helped establish my level of interest towards a few things. That said, the price point does sting a bit now that I've thought about it a bit more. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Dec 19, 2008

    "New Avengers: The Reunion: Suspicion" - Jim McCann, David Lopez & Alvaro LopezThis final segment is a setup for the new Ronin & Mockingbird title. While I think Mockingbird's resurrection was one of the more ludicrous and unnecessary plot points of Secret Invasion #8, I have to give McCann credit for exploring an unexpected and interesting angle in this story. Both heroes are back from the dead, albeit in different ways, and the writer wisely realizes this would be traumatic, both for each character personally and to their marriage. Mind you, any kind of resonance relies on the reader's knowledge of their background, including Mockingbird's little-known history as a secret super-spy. There's potential here for sure, though I'm not completely sold on the concept yet. David Lopez's art is attractive and it conveys the kind of mature atmosphere of intrigue for which the script strives, though Rudoni's colors are a bit too bright. Read Full Review

    Hit or miss for the project as a whole, then. There are some sleepy points, but none of the high points really offset them (or the price tag). If you decide to splurge, though, there are some fun moments to be had with the glimpses into Marvel's future. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 8, 2009

    Overall, it's not much more than a coming attractions book, and even if the moviesare good, I'm kind of irked at paying four bucks for the trailers. Read Full Review
