Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #23

Jun 12, 2019

Strong epilogue with some strangeness from Kraven at the end, but I'm glad to see the story stick the landing, possible threats with the Savage Six and Chameleon, and Pete and MJ for a moment.

Avengers (2018) #21

Jul 10, 2019

Fun issue with some much deserved down time for the Avengers. Deep looks into the thoughts of the team members, lots of bonding, and some foreshadowing before we get into the next arc, "Challenge of the Ghost Riders."

A slow burn for the anticipation of the main race, but a good and necessary start to the arc.

Avengers (2018) #23

Aug 28, 2019

Part two of the Riders arc does a good job to continue driving the story by introducing a fierce challenge for the Avengers. We are starting to see the Ghost Riders interact with each other and a dive into their history.

Avengers (2018) #24

Sep 25, 2019

I can't wait for next issue's conclusion and to see how this all shakes out and leads to the new Ghost Rider series. This issue really did a great job of moving the story along and also peeling back the curtain to get us wondering who the villain will be.

Daredevil (2019) #7

Jun 19, 2019

This issue continues the story and lets the reader know what could be coming into play later in the arc. It features a great moment with Matt Murdock facing Daredevil's faults and what they do to other people.

Daredevil (2019) #8

Jul 17, 2019

A tense moment for the Man without Fear at the dinner table of one of Hell's Kitchen's notorious mafia families. Wilson Fisk makes a play for the bigger crime. The story progresses the overall arc.

Daredevil (2019) #10

Aug 21, 2019

This conclusion stuck the landing and has made the entire run of 10 issues worth it. Daredevil may be the title, but the actions and adventures of Matt Murdock is what brings the fans back for more. High stakes and moral questions keep you guess what will happen next.

Amazing issue! Chip and Marco really tighten the screws to Murdock and Fisk as they try to be different than what their nature shows. This issue tests the mettle of these two men; definitely a read this new comic book day!

DCeased #2

Jun 5, 2019

This issue adds to the body count, but hits us hard in the feelings with how we lose characters in this continuation of the overall story.

DCeased #3

Jul 3, 2019

This was a strong issue that takes us to the midway of the story. The losses in this issue were harder as most of them were main characters and family members, but this hammers home the idea that no one is safe.

DCeased #4

Aug 7, 2019

The action and drama continues to hit hard, and more DC characters make their DCeased debut, which might not be best for them. Lower tier characters get big moments and some revelations happen as the DCU continues to fight for survival.

DCeased: A Good Day To Die #1

Sep 3, 2019

A fantastic one-shot that gives fan favorite heroes a moment to shine in a horribly dark version of the DC Universe. If you haven't been reading DCeased, then start here with this amazing one-shot.

Fantastic first issue. Dynamite characterization and story points from Ed Brisson and amazing art from Aaron Kuder. These two are revving the engine for the Ghost Riders.

Marvels (1994): Epilogue #1

Jul 23, 2019

You can't go wrong with Marvels and the original creative lineup. The extra story and beautiful art by Busiek and Ross help to bring this "DVD extras" comic to life. Marvels fans will return to a classic time in the Marvel Universe while giving tribute to Dave Cockrum in a whole new view.

Strikeforce (2019) #1

Sep 24, 2019

Strikeforce is shaping up to be an interesting mix of heroes going up against evil forces. The issue doesn't stand alone, so be ready to commit if you want to see this team in action, but the team members do work really well together.

Superman Smashes The Klan #1

Great miniseries that will finally take a Superman adventure from the radio series and bring it to the comics wold. Great tale with lots of character struggle with real world issues. Fantastic art that shows a timeless Superman as well.

Conclusion to the War of the Realms tie in for the X-Men and has a major impact on the Mutants; also fits in very nicely with the current volume of Uncanny. A New Mutant will be mourned after this battle is won.
