Aug 28, 2019

In Absolute Carnage #2, the entire art team is clicking, which continues the series' excellent start.

Absolute Carnage (2019): Separation Anxiety #1

Aug 13, 2019

No comic is perfect but Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety #1 is a practically flawless horror story that happens to tie into Marvel's newest major event.

Acts of Evil: Ms. Marvel Annual #1

Jul 2, 2019

Ms. Marvel's conflict with the Super-Skrull is a fresh match-up but the story lacks the mystery you'd hope for when a Skrull is involved.

Acts of Evil: Deadpool Annual #1

Aug 21, 2019

Deadpool Annual #1 is funny enough to make up for the fact that it misses the mark when it tries to tackle serious subjects.

Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #31

Oct 9, 2019

The juxtaposition of the past and present elevates Spencer's exploration of Spider-Man's thought process and reminds the reader how deeply personal Spidey's rivalry with Norman Osborn is.

Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #1

Sep 17, 2019

Jim Zub and the art team start Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda with a strong first issue that establishes the team and offers a hint of what's to come.

Chainsaw Reindeer #1

Sep 10, 2019

Chainsaw Reindeer #1 won't blow you away with a profound story but it's still a lot of fun.

Event Leviathan #1

Jun 12, 2019

Event Leviathan #1 fails to build on the momentum of the Leviathan Rising one-shot. Instead, it simply spins its wheels; Bendis doesn't offer many new nuggets of information in the story. The event may be a slow-burn mystery but, with such a dull first issue, Bendis may have already smothered the flame of the fans' intrigue.

Fantastic Four (2018) #10

May 30, 2019

A balance between a traditional Fantastic Four story and a typical event tie-in; this issue focuses on Franklin Richards, who's now a stereotypical teenager.

Fantastic Four (2018) #11

Jun 26, 2019

Under Dan Slott, Fantastic Four continues to focus on the family. The latest issue is no different; the heroes have to overcome a driving test and Franklin remains a stagnant character. The art team makes the most of the script by complementing its sci-fi elements.

Fearless (2019) #1

Jul 23, 2019

The promising idea behind Fearless #1 can't save it from lackluster content inside the comic itself.

Invaders (2019) #7

Jul 17, 2019

Invaders #7 succeeds as a throwback to Civil War but falls somewhat short as the beginning of a new story.

Justice League (2018) #25

Jun 5, 2019

With Justice League #25, writer James Tynion IV delivers a riveting prologue to "Year of the Villain," DC's upcoming company-wide event. By the end of the issue, the reader will be left begging for the official introduction to the expansive crossover.

Miles Morales: Spider-Man (2018) #7

Jun 19, 2019

Miles Morales: Spider-Man features a solid Spider story but the contrasting art styles make it a jarring reading experience.

Silver Surfer: Black #1

Jun 11, 2019

With Silver Surfer Black #1, Marvel delivers an exceptional introduction to a new miniseries and it also functions fairly well as a standalone issue. The art is consistently a sight to behold and the narration deserves to be reread multiple times for its heartfelt expressiveness.

The Batman Who Laughs (2018) #7

Jul 31, 2019

The story, art, coloring and lettering all combine to make THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #7 a horrifying thrill ride.

Venom (2018) #16

Jul 9, 2019

Venom #16 is one of the best issues of Cates' run on the series so far and it redefines Brock's relationship with the symbiote.
