    DRAX #4 is a great action packed story by CM PUNK, Cullen Bunn, and Scott Hepburn featuring Drax and Terrax, who are looking to bring down Fin Fang Foom! The plot is a lot of fun, if a little convoluted, but the art is spectacular, making the whole experience a blast! Read Full Review

    Drax #4 continues the adventures of everyone's favorite Guardians Of The Galaxy curmudgeon, diving deeper into the abyss of strange and unique Marvel characters. While the book does feel short and sometimes bland in its delivery, the often comical art stylings and writing keep Drax as a series to pursue. Read Full Review

    It's not a bad book, but it's also not a particularly memorable one. Read Full Review

    You would imagine that a character like Drax, who takes things so literally all of the time wouldn’t have a book with so much talking in it, but for a book set in an outerspace version of classic Roman gladiatorial pits, there is an awful lot of jabbering. This book has a nice look to it, and the inclusion of Fin Fang Foom adds a bit of connective tissue to the Marvel Universe, because I don’t know how many people really know/care about Terrax, I for one didn’t really know anything about him before this book, and what I learned from him in the early issues is that he is a forgetful drunk who loses things far too easily. Couple that with the mystifying fact that the co-writer of this book is a drug-free “Straightedge” type, and it is rather confounding that this and his only other foray into comic book writing started off with binge drinking and bar scenes. I haven’t been impressed with this title like I would have liked- being that Bautista brought some real heavyweight (heh) action to Drax the Destroyer in the MCU, I was hoping that someone like CM Punk, a former professional wrestler and soon-to-be MMA fighter, would bring some dazzling footwork and freight train punches to this character and his story. But really, it hasn’t been the most stellar outing for this series, if the match were called right now- I would declare no one the winner. But the artwork is solid, and it seems like, maybe, just maybe there is some decent groundwork being laid for some future stories involving some buddy-buddy Drax and Terrax goodness. As I said, for a story that seems to be 100% focused on fighting, and it’s titular character isn’t one for flowery speech and wasted words, this issue has SO MUCH DANG talking… it’s like an endless wrestling promo, and I wish it would just be over! I don’t know when it happened in professional wrestling, but there is SO MUCH FLIPPIN talking these days. I love to torture my wife by turning on whatever program comes on, and
