A Cosmic part 1 that feels like the begining of the end of Dan Slot's run on the Silver Surfer. Despite the issue dealing with time travel, the Queen of Nevers, and Galactuus, it was the emotion of love that is the most powerful entity in the issue. As always, the fantastic artistryy and color by Mike and Laura Allred are the engine that make this issue about aging and looking back at life as powe more

This issue of Generations was the one team-up I was looking forward too. Tom Taylor has delivered yet again for the Generations event, and Rosanas and Woodard gives us good clean work. Generations: All New Wolverine & Wolverine #1 is a perfect balance of action and heart that's part of the Wolverine charm.

The identity of Discord is finally reveled. This is an issue that is heavy on the action which is an interesting change of pace. There is still some heart to the issue though. The art is great and very fitting. I really enjoyed the depictions of action during the chase scenes and the Mosque battle. A great chapter in the series.

G. Willow Wilson comes up with a clever analogue and tries to find common ground paralleling current tensions in American politics - a difficult task, executed very creatively. Her brother's character has gotten more of a spotlight of late and it works!

Well Waid tried and Delmundo gave it his best shot and in some panels they succeeded but overall this tie in didn't deliver and many characters are not well handled starting with Deadpool and Odinson. I might seem harsh but i know Waid and Delmundo can be better. At least there was no redemption for Taskmaster.
