Dark Ages (2021) #2

Darkhawk (2021) #2

Demon Days (2021): X-Men #1

Mar 8, 2021

Momoko does a good job of hooking the reader but this story felt rushed. Hopefully the second issue is more thought-out with the pacing.

Devil's Reign (2021) #1

Dec 13, 2021

This book comes in hot and ready-to-go with action, tactical moves, and just straight brutality. Yet Zdarsky and the team have still found a way to make the readers empathetic towards Fisk.

House of Slaughter #1

Nov 1, 2021

This is was a dark and fun intro to a spin-off story that if the reader did not read the original materials, they would still be able to enjoy it.

King Conan (2021) #2

This issue gives Conan the depth that the first issue did not, while showing how badass and calculated Conan is.

King Of Spies #1

Dec 6, 2021

There's enough meat on the bone of this story to make you see what's coming next, but Millar's need for action-first story-telling may not be for everyone.

Phenom X #1

Nov 15, 2021

While the story feels like it was meant to break stereotypes, it feels like it plays more into them. It reads less like a comic and more of a script for a television or straight-to-DVD movie.
