Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #2

Oct 24, 2015

While Slott spends a little too much time characterizing the Zodiac members, Amazing Spider-Man #2 is another fun entry into the web-slinger's new journey.

Godzilla in Hell #3

Oct 11, 2015

The real MVP here, however, is Buster Moody (with help from Ludwig Laguna Olimba) whose artwork conveys real horror blended with a breathtaking sense of beauty that makes this one IDW's best titles.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #5

Sep 22, 2014

Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-man #5 is not the strongest issue in the current story. However it does enhance the supporting cast that is being cultivated around Miles Morales. Maria Hill and J. Jonah Jameson have strong personal connections to Peter Parker and Spider-man, and it is imminent that whoever this "Peter" is revealed to be, a passionate response by Maria and Jonah will soon follow.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #6

Oct 21, 2014

This issue constantly switches gears between the sheer intensity of the action and the quizzical, mysterious moments of conversation. By changing the pace of the story from action to exposition frequently, Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-man #6 triumphs in furthering the mystery of Peter Parker and sets up an incredible new development for the titular character.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #11

Mar 16, 2015

Despite the great development and conflict of Miles's relationship with Katie, the rushed nature of the story unfortunately hurts what could have otherwise been an exceptional issue.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #12

Apr 13, 2015

Ultimate End and Secret Wars will both heavily feature Miles Morales, but there's no guarantee that any of the characters the Ultimate Spider-Man team has created as a part of Miles's life will exist afterwards. Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #12 gives the supporting cast one last moment in the spotlight and shows that, despite its rushed conclusion, both the creators and supporting characters care deeply about the young hero.

Morning Glories #40

Sep 13, 2014

The issue lays yet another plot thread on the complex web that Spencer and Eisma have been weaving post-Woodrun. The characterization of Ian is top notch, with refreshing beats of school life and the seething Truant's declaration of vengeance. The unfortunate humdrum of a wordy physics lesson otherwise tones down the intensity of this issue but provides what should be an important clue moving forward in the series.

Morning Glories #41

Oct 6, 2014

Towerball takes precedence in Morning Glories #41 and unfortunately makes the issue feel nothing more than a filler chapter. While the impending sacrifice of Jade and resurrection of Jun is an exciting new development, it comes at the cost of Guillame's moment in the spotlight having any meaning towards the character or the overall story.

Morning Glories #42

Nov 24, 2014

This issue hits all the strengths of the series: strongly characterized teens interacting with each other in a school of mystery and death. The fate of Jade and the student council presidency loom as Spencer and Eisma head into what will hopefully be another exciting event.

Morning Glories #43

Feb 16, 2015

Morning Glories #43 ends with Glories and Truants coming together to help Casey win the election. This character piece on Ike is a strong introduction to the student election arc that delivers some answers and sets up an exciting team for the upcoming campaign.

Morning Glories #44

Mar 30, 2015

Spencer and Eisma's final page reveals continue to confound and bewilder Morning Glories readers, raising more questions of the importance of time travel and supernatural powers found in the Glories and Truants. But as Vanessa's mother says at the beginning of the issue, "Always end on a cliffhanger..You know the rules."

Some shaky moments in artwork aren't enough to derail yet another excellent Jade story of Morning Glories.

Morning Glories #46

Jun 11, 2015

Mr. N tells Irina that kings and prophets once worshiped her, and Spencer and Eisma make the case for worthiness to readers as well. Irina is one of the few characters in Morning Glories that is both confident and capable ofdoing exactly what she wants, and she will no doubt be a reckoning force as the series goes on.

Samurai Jack #13

Oct 25, 2014

The combination of the trials of Jack's warrior integrity and Robo-Merc and Aku's stellar dialogue deliver an issue of Samurai Jack that is as Steel-tastic as Robo-Merc's armor.

Samurai Jack #14

Nov 30, 2014

Zub, Suriano, Beavers, and Burcham deliver a story that could be the penultimate issue of the entire series if they chose to end it now. With beautiful and enrapturing artwork that capture Jack's rise to becoming a worthy warrior to battle evil, Samurai Jack #14 is undoubtedly the best issue in the series thus far.

Samurai Jack #16

Jan 26, 2015

The issue concludes with the introduction of an old foe and a classic team-up trope of hero and villain. While not the most thrilling issue to date, Samurai Jack #16 is a solid beginning to what looks to be a fun heist story.

Fantastic action sequences and strong characterization of the Thief mix with a comical and somewhat disappointing finish to Jack and the Master of Time.

Samurai Jack #20

Jun 8, 2015

Few finales exist that attempt to tie up stories while leaving the door open for future tales and succeed. Luckily for readers, the Samurai Jack creative team joins the small pantheon of these great endings. They succeed in delivering a finale that both celebrates all the stories that have come before and continues developing the titular character, keeping the door open for future tales while presenting a satisfying endpoint to Jack's epic adventure. But either way, the final words of Mako the Scribe ring true about Samurai Jack: "The Legend Will Never Die."
