    "Vanguard" is of particular interest. Marc Guggenheim (former Law & Order writer) is in his element as he tells the story of two detectives trying to unravel a murder in which the victim can't be identified and the prime suspect looks strangely like a bald peeping-tom that lives on the moon. The pace is methodical, but in the good way that builds intrigue/suspense instead of the bad that just makes things boring. The art is a little too dark and rich for my tastes, but it's not horrible. The Hellcat story is the other standout. I'm especially happy that Marvel is giving some face time to a character that's been around in one form or another since 1944. While none of the events actually make any sense thus far (Marvel is in dire need of more identical attractive redheads though), it's executed in such a way to make that a positive. It doesn't hurt that Stuart Immonen's style gives it the same zany vibe that Nextwave had. If the title is able to maintain the same level of quality Read Full Review

    There's still no denying the uneven quality of this series, but those are the risks that come with the format, and the sense that there's more good than bad in this second issue definitely counts in the book's favor. Marvel Comics Presents may still fall short of being a great anthology title, but it has at least convinced me that the concept can work in the modern market, and that it might be worth following for a while longer.

    Three fun distractions and one ever present blah story make me wish this book was at least a dollar less but, I still look forward to what Marvel will present to us next issue. Read Full Review

    Finally, the only weak spot in my opinion, is the Omega Flight stuff. I'm just not enjoying it. The Omega Flight mini-series met with a lot of problems, what with it being shifted from ongoing to mini and other creator issues, and I just did not come away from that series with any good feelings. Seeing the amount of face time it will be getting in this book is probably the biggest thing that made me leary of picking up this second issue. Read Full Review
