Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #68

Jun 9, 2021

Were quickly approaching the Sinister War, and Spencer and the gang are chugging along. This issue is full of subplots featuring new faces, old faces, and possibly cloned faces? Spencer brings lot of energy with this book, and theres loads of potential for greatness. Hopefully the pay off will be worth the wait.

Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #69

Jun 23, 2021

This issue is full of so many things that I should love in a Spider-Man story, but the lack of clarity and cohesion with this issue drags it down. Theres one more chapter coming, so Im holding out hope that Spencer, Brisson, and the rest of the team will be able to give us that final punch to make this storyline a win for the fans.

Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #70

Jul 7, 2021

Its a slow start to the end of an era. Nick Spencer spends the issue putting so many pieces into play into the upcoming Sinister War, that the chessboard is full on every square. Unfortunately theres too much set up here, and while we know that the odds are going to be huge, you dont get the sense of that from reading the issue. Hopefully Spencer can pull this off, because itd be a huge disappointment to see this impressive run end on a whimper.

Amazing Spider-Man (2018): Chameleon Conspiracy #1

Jun 30, 2021

This story should be a stone grove winner for me. It has: the Chameleon, Chance, the Foreigner, a bevy of Jack O Lanterns and Chameleons, and Silver Sable, but Im afraid that the schedule got the best of Spencer, and bringing on Brisson came a little too late. The countdown to the end needs to land or else I fear Spencers run might fall flat.

Avengers (2018) #43

Mar 3, 2021

This issue was filler, and doesnt move the story more than a few beats forward, but the art (and my OCD) has me firmly committed to this title. If I had to say anything its Jason Aaron really needs to stay away from the Phoenix. He doesnt seem to understand what it is on a fundamental level, and is using it to give the story some cosmic gravitas thats just missing the mark.

Avengers (2018) #46

Jul 5, 2021

After a rocky few arcs Jason Aaron seems to be back on track. His handling of the Winter Guard here shows that hes more comfortable with the standard superhero fare as opposed than topics that are more of a cosmic nature. Long simmering plots come to a head in this issue, as the countdown to fifty commences. Hopefully this team will be able to keep up this momentum.

Avengers (2018) #47

Aug 4, 2021

There are so many ingredients involved in this storyline that it should have made this issue an absolute success, but the measurements were completely off. Not enough time given to She-Hulk, or the Avengers who arent Cap or Iron Man, or the Winter Guard who wasnt the Red Widow, and the development was disappointing. I understand Aarons trying to make every arc an event, but its been falling flat over the last few.

Mariko follows up on the work that shes done with the Huntress on her Detective Comics run with this one shot, and comprises of all the best parts of her run on that book over here. Mixed with Laphams solid art, a compelling take on Helena, this issue is a real highlight in the bloated market that is the Batman family of titles.

Black Cat (2020) #8

Jul 28, 2021

This book just continues to get better with every issue, and the same is true for this one. MacKay and Villa, with the help of Brian Reber and Ferran Delgado, infuse so much charisma and character into each panel, you cant help but appreciate the craftsmanship here. Theyve built a whole world up for a Spider-Man supporting cast member, in a way that Felicia can be completely independent of Spider-Man, in order to tell a well written, beautifully drawn story that isnt a detriment to the characters or the comic.

Madonna said it Star light, Star bright, first star I see tonight. Jed and Villa have given it their all with this arc, and they plan to go out with the biggest band for your $3.99 can handle. The art is great, Felicia and the gangs banter and patois keeps the mood light and whimsical, which is a very big plus in my book.

Black Cat (2020) #10

Sep 29, 2021

Great character moments who are full of personality and humor, globe trodding adventures, mixed with energetic and dynamic art has been a cornerstone of this entire 22 issue run, thanks to Jed MacKay and the talented artists hes been paired with. MacKay and company took an ancillary character into a complex and fun leading star. Wherever Marvel goes from here with the Cat and her cast hopefully will be as entertaining as weve become accustomed to over the last two and a half years.

Black Widow (2020) #8

Jul 1, 2021

The team supreme delivers another top notch book. Thompsons characterization and dialogue is fresh, and gives each of the cast members distinct personalities. Meanwhile Casagrande and De La Torre bring their A-game here, and gives us flawless characters, a liquid sense of movement when theres action, and each character is distinct from each other. I hope Marvel knows this golden nugget on their hands.

Black Widow (2020) #9

Jul 29, 2021

With a quick wit, sleek art, and compelling characters, Kelly Thompson, Elena Casagrande, and Rafael De La Torre have made this book the one I look forward to reading most every time it comes out. Kellys got a real knack when it comes to creating a group of characters to care about. Natashas had several books over the years, but Kelly Elena, and Rafael have struck just the right elements that make this run one to look out for.

Black Widow (2020) #10

Aug 26, 2021

Kellys second arc finishes up with this issue, and shes added more people to Natashas supporting cast, and theyre looking to add some interesting layers for the titular heroine. Thompson has made Yelena an integral part of this book, and it feels so much better with her. The friendship feels natural, and Yelena evokes a different side of Natasha than their American allies, which opens up new paths to explore.

His style of Neo-classicism really lends to the strength of his storytelling abilities. High art mixed with the flair of the noir, Selinas world is magical here, and looks like it stepped right out of a 60s Pop Art Deco exhibit. Hopefully the rest of this mini is as enjoyable as this one was.

Orlandos got a decent handle on the characters voices, and Tormey is really strutting his stuff here. There are a few issues with how Wandas handled, but nothing that detracted from my enjoyment I have high hopes for this event thats been pushed back nearly a year and a half, thanks to Covid.

Darkhold (2021): Blade #1

Oct 27, 2021

Just in time for Halloween, Marvel drops a spooky tale in a world with no mutants, and vampires are running things. Its a fun, yet dark issue that plays with the vampire trope in a superhero setting, giving us a glimpse of something familiar, yet also very different from everything else. This story doesnt really relate to the main story about the Darkhold, ChThon, Doom, or the Scarlet Witch, so the inclusion in this is kinda eh. It seems like it could tie into the broader Vampire nation story thats been playing out in various titles across the Marvel Universe.

Wonder Woman (2016) #779

Sep 14, 2021

The final chapter of Cloonan, Conrad, and Moores epic Homeric odyssey through the multiverse, while providing a meta commentary on comic fandom, and the devotion for continuity through the use of the characters introduced in this arc. The dichotomy of Januss two sides, and the absolutes that both represent, are tempered when theyre together. Its a novel approach to comics as they try to ensure the relevance of the characters, and the cultural impact theyve given us through the decades of publication.

After sacrificing herself to save everything (because thats what heroes do), its the end of the months long adventure in various Multiversal afterlives for Wonder Woman, and the team lets Diana reconnect with some very important pieces of her life. Cloonan and Conrad continue to show why they understand Diana; shes an inspiration for the whole world. Much like Superman, Wonder Woman is the epitome of the very best of us.
