The art fits the character perfectly. I found the first pages of Ben Reilly talking to himself quite annoying, and I grew to hate every moment that Reilly "talked" to the Jackyl and the Scarlet Spider.

Probably the best Batman-Flash team up I've read. The story does a fine job of explaining the things that Batman and Flash have in common, making them natural allies. As a fan of DC's long and complex continuity, I was fascinated by what we saw during the trip on the Cosmic Treadmill. I can't wait to see where this story goes in the next two installments.

It's called Unleashed, and look at the cover. And then read Marvel's tease. There's no new Hulk in this issue, or in the entire series! Marvel's marketing 100% lied. This is an irreparable breach of trust between Marvel and us readers. Hugely disappointing!

While it looks like the She-Hulk might finally appear next issue, the storyline is so decompressed its non existent. The page is littered with clumsy thought boxes. Even competent art can't save this series.

Who thought it would be a good idea to launch a She Hulk comic with no She Hulk in the book until issue 6? Did Marvel want this book to fail? What a waste of time!

The artwork was fantastic. The story was predictable to a fault, and the entire storyline as empty as a 1960's JLA. The arc should have lasted two issues, tops. Keep the artist, and get a new writer. I give it a 7.5 just because the art was great.

This book was good. There's a lot in here to digest and a lot of the plot holes have been explained well. This issue shows how Spencer had this all planned out. Art can be better but I ignored the was art because I was so into the story and I didn't want to miss anything. The material is dense and this book is high on dialogue but good dialogue.

I would give this issue a much higher grade if the artwork were better. The art was inconsistent... good on some pages, weaker on other pages. I found that the art took away from the story. It distracted me. By the way, the story was quite compelling.

The stakes are high, the battle is savage, with the Thunderbolts in terrible danger. I liked the story but the artwork was substandard. I had to look at some panels several times to figure out who was doing what to which person. The fight between the Wrecking Crew and the TBolts was poorly drawn. The story gets a 9. The art gets a 3.

This is an event that has an intriguing premise. I find myself truly curious as to how this will be resolved, and if we will ever get Captain America restored to the great hero he used to be. The art was quite good. This artwork is much better than what has been seen in Cap's regular book for the last few issues. This issue had almost too many moving parts, with too many characters without a more

Quite a bland story. Apparently, back to basics means mutant softball. I give the book points because the art is good. This is what I have a problem with, and why I only give the issue a six: The relationship between Old Man Logan and the rest of the cast. All of the characters act as if Old Man Logan is an old friend, someone they've known for years. They are comfortable around him and treat him more

I give this a 9 rating based on the artwork alone. The art job was tough, having to draw various characters and locations throughout time. The artist did a fantastic job. and the story, wasn't as cringe-worthy as previous issues. I liked the art so much it made me try to find the previous work of the artist.

This is most definitely a "back to basics" comic. You could have stopped reading X-Men in 1990 and then picked this book up and have no trouble jumping right back into it. I enjoyed all the character interactions, except for the clumsy danger room sequence. I like the direction the series seems to be heading. The silliest aspect of the book is the new location of the X-Men's headquarters. How lon more

The art was above average. The pacing, as stated by a previous reviewer, was awkward. The supporting characters, other than the Original Five, were written strangely out of character, and could have been left out of the book completely. The ending was especially annoying. I am looking forward to Cullen Bunn getting control of these characters.
