JoseAmor reviewed X-Men: Gold #4 May 18, 2017
8.0

While I do find that Blue has been a more consistently interesting and imaginative book so far, this issue to me seems to move past the awkward start and begin to build a stronger second arc, even if it does echo the one-and-done story Blue just did with mutant sentinels. Gambit is always a welcome addition, and I like the seeds sown during Storm and Logan's police scene. Rachel's psy-skills, whil more

JoseAmor reviewed Generation X #1 May 17, 2017
7.5

A good, almost great first issue, except it is a little too familiar, a little too we've seen it all before. Jubilee as the adult is a great lens character, one that almost everyone will be able to relate to in some way. The kids themselves are barely given any major characterization, instead just given brief introductions of their powersets. Overall a decent start to an X series that I'm excited more

Generation X #1

The Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach has opened its doors and is ready to foster the next generation of heroes and diplomats! But this time around, the X-Men recognize an unfortunate truth: not all mutants are created equal. Some mutants are not made to fight Sentinels or serve as ambassadors on behalf of their kind.

Spider-Man continues on excellent trajectory since the ending of the Clone Conspiracy. Osborn's master plan and revelations are devious and entertaining. After the way Norman's identity was treated back in Superior, I'm really glad to see Slott picking up that thread and using it to showcase more of Osborn's batshit insanity. Loved Mockingbird's part, Silver Sable's revelation was interesting and more

8.0

Solid issue with some good characterization for Jean as a team leader. I love that every member of this team really works together. It makes for good action sequences. The villain of the issue was an interesting one with unusual motivations. Blue continues to hit it out of the park while Gold struggles to keep up.

X-Men: Blue #3

JoseAmor reviewed Hulk #5 Apr 26, 2017
8.5

A fascinating character study on the road to recovering from trauma, Jen's story continues to burn slowly into what will (hopefully) be an intense and worthwhile conclusion to this first arc. The lack of Hulking in a Hulk book is disappointing, but the deep character work and unique tone is the meat to this comic.

JoseAmor reviewed Old Man Logan #22 Apr 26, 2017
8.0

A continuation of a stylized romp through Wolverine's history. While it's fun and gorgeous to look at, there's no suspense or tension. Each scene is little more than a brief shot of something that Logan has no control over. However, the art and nostalgia carry this arc enough that it doesn't feel like filler, despite knowing we're halfway through it and have almost nothing new to show for it.

JoseAmor reviewed All-New Wolverine #18 Mar 9, 2017
8.0

A year and a half ago, fans watched as Laura Kinney declared herself Wolverine in the absence of her mentor, and she did so with an optimism and fervor that called back to the days of good guys fighting bad guys because bad guys are bad. Since then, that hopefulness and cheer has been slowly beaten out of Laura, culminating in her murder of an entire town after exposure to her trigger scent. All N more
