Avengers (2018) #1

May 2, 2018

Everything about this comic seems like a home run, especially for me, so why was it such a letdown? Don't get me wrong, Avengers #1 is a solid book. But with all the hype Marvel is putting behind it, solid isn't quite enough.

Batwoman has been in a valley for a couple of issues, and I was VERY worried about this big "vs. Batman" fight distracting from the quality of Kate's story. However, it proved to be exactly the opposite, and the inner battle of a symbol versus your own family quickly became a powerful message.

Teen Titans (2016): Special #1

Jun 27, 2018

Writer Adam Glass and artist Robson Rocha clearly have a darker vision in mind for these kids, and Rocha's art shines throughout the entire issue, giving life to these new stories.

All in all, TTG #26 is fun, but not the characters at their best.

Teen Titans Go! #27

Apr 18, 2018

If I could rate these individually I'd give Part 1 a 5/5, and Part 2 a 2/5. But it doesn't really work that way, so I'm going to meet somewhere in the middle for the book as a whole.

It's a beautiful metaphor of how culture shifts, both for better and for worse.

Thanos (2016) #16

Feb 28, 2018

This book is crazy in every sense of the word, and it's worth much more than the price of admission.

Thanos (2016) #17

Mar 21, 2018

Think about putting the brutal violence of Mad Max: Fury Road into the world of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy movies. That's the playground where Thanos resides. This is the definition of heavy metal.

Thanos (2016) #18

Apr 11, 2018

Thanos #18 is both a blessing and a curse. It's another great issue in an already stellar run of a wild story. What's a little disappointing is that this is the last issue of the series.

The Curse of Brimstone #1

Apr 4, 2018

Overall, Curse of Brimstone #1 can be a fun read, but you won't remember much about the book 10 minutes after you put it down.

The Curse of Brimstone #2

May 2, 2018

Despite its short comings, Curse of Brimstone showed some real improvement, and there is potential for this to grow into a great book. Whether it does so or not remains to be seen.

The Curse of Brimstone #3

Jun 6, 2018

There is promise to be had in this saga, but Brimstone goes off the rails too often to keep anyone interested for very long.

The story still has a lot of growing to do, but this installment was a great step on the road to becoming something much better.

Transformers: Lost Light #16

This book will only appeal to hardcore fans of the franchise, and even then, most will find it overwhelmingly boring.

The story is slightly less boring than the presentation, but only just. It's a struggle to get through this book.

Venom (2016) #165

Apr 25, 2018

Venom #165 is the final issue of this story, and it feels like it all came to an end very abruptly. The problem is, I can't tell if that's a good or a bad thing.

Venom (2018) #1

May 9, 2018

This first issue peels back the curtain on the Symbiotes, letting the readers know that there is so much more to the history of this race on Earth than we ever knew, all while setting the stage for a Lovecraftian mystery that one would never expect in a Venom series, but is more than a welcomed change of pace.

Stegman and Cates continue to present a perfect balance, as Venom is one of the most all-around complete works Marvel is publishing.

Honestly, Venomized would have been a lot better if the dialogue was removed entirely and you could just look at the pictures.

Weapon H #1

Mar 21, 2018

The debut of Weapon H provides quite the conundrum. While many comics, movies, TV shows, etc. suffer from being a great idea with poor execution, Weapon H is exactly the opposite.
