Mikel Janin, as always, proves why he is one of the best in the comics business currently. His splash pages are absolutely gorgeous. Tom King has got me intrigued yet again with this story arc and the tastefully done storytelling. Can't wait for the next issue.

The hype is real. This is one of the most interesting comic books I have read this year. The art is fantastic and the opening issue is so "something" when it comes to storytelling that you have to find a copy or two. This is a series that will probably be one of the best comics this year.

You could read this issue twice in a row and you'd still be tempted to give it another go to fully grasp the narrative. This is Tom King at his best. People were blown away by King's run on Vision and this is shaping up to be just like that or possibly even better. Mister Miracle isn't for everyone but if you love comics, you should at least steal your friend's issue, read it, and then give it bac more

IRON FIST #6 was terrific. While I, thoroughly, enjoyed the opening arc, I was a little concerned about Danny Rand being involved in, yet, another kung-fu tournament (Not only has it been done. ..more than once...but I'd hate to see Iron Fist limited, solely, to martial arts themed villians and stories). However, that same tournament has, apparently, set the stage & given IRON FIST (the series more

This is a great action packed issue. This series has just been getting better with each installment. Not much in terms of advancing the story line, but that is not needed at this time.
