Black Bolt #3

Jul 8, 2017

Saladin Ahmed does a fantastic job taking the Silent King and making him interesting and multifaceted. Despite the fact that Black Bolt is a silent type, used to the burden of not being able to speak freely, Saladin establishes his writing skill by taking him and keeping them not only engaged but wanting more.

Black Bolt #4

Aug 5, 2017

As Black Bolt listens to someone who, by all accounts, is a criminal and realizes some of his own misdeeds far outweigh the ones committed by Crusher Creel, it really makes the reader question who is the hero of this story.

Captain Canuck (2017) #1

Aug 6, 2017

Good pacing, surprisingly interesting storyline with flawed characters with dark pasts. This reviewer's only suggestion would be if the issue events referred to past issues, some editorial footnotes would help new readers grasp the significance of what's occurring.

Edge of Venomverse #1

Jun 30, 2017

A slow introduction to this new mashup from Marvel. Hopefully the next issue quickens the pace.

Edge of Venomverse #2

Jul 14, 2017

This issue is a step in the right direction. Hopefully the issues build off one another rather than being single-shot issues of the character before they're thrown into the main Venom storyline. I get the feeling the writers didn't consult each other when creating these issues so it might make little sense how the narration flows from one comic issue to the next. Treat them like single issues.

Edge of Venomverse #3

Jul 29, 2017

Two more issues left in this series and only one so far as left a good impression. Hopefully Marvel pulls out all the stops in the last issues coming.

A great addition to both the Old Man Logan miniseries and the Edge of Venomverse world building.

Edge of Venomverse #5

Aug 25, 2017

Overall, the best thing to come out of this series was the consistent cover art by Francesco Mattina. His artwork was constantly flawless and well done. By choosing different creative teams to run each title, the overall series didn't seem to flow well from one issue to the next, but hopefully that will improve with the new Venomverse titles.

Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor #1

Aug 26, 2017

I really enjoyed this issue, even with the oddball Phoenix/Odin love history bomb. Jason Aaron is becoming one of my favorite writers at Marvel. I hope we continue to see his awesome writing abilities for many, many years.

Vast improvements, but only time will tell if the writers stay the course.

Suicide Squad (2016) #20

Jul 1, 2017

Beautifully drawn, even if Waller's choice of who should leave the Squad makes little in-character sense and more of a pull from DC's editors and publishers due to this character's current popularity.

Suicide Squad (2016) #21

Jul 12, 2017

A good tie-in to all the shading dealings over the course of Rebirth. Wherever the Squad is heading, they'll come out the other side completely changed.

Suicide Squad (2016) #22

Jul 27, 2017

Suicide Squad is one of the shining gems to come out of DC Rebirth and I can't wait for more.

Suicide Squad (2016) #23

Aug 12, 2017

Not as strong of an issue as the previous few but still shows growth for the team and their darker sides. Despite being staffed with villains, this aint your mommas squad anymore. No more jokes or sweet team building between the members of this new Squad.

Suicide Squad (2016) #24

Aug 25, 2017

Suicide Squad has had a shaky run in Rebirth with questionable leadership. From Waller's obvious issues, Harcourt's deception, Rick's death and Harley's succession as team leader " what the team needs is some solid issues of the team taking up leadership or an outside source stepping in and cleaning up the mess that is upper management.

The Mighty Thor (2015) #20

Jun 24, 2017

Mighty Thor continues to shine on the gem that is Jane Foster but really needs to give Odinson some time out.

The Mighty Thor (2015) #21

Jul 22, 2017

Is it weird to have a crush on Volstagg now? Since picking up that hammer he's kind of become babe material.

Titans (2016) #12

Jun 20, 2017

The panels and cover art in this issue are fantastic and play well with the emotions lurking beneath the surface of each character. (That panel when Roy can't bring himself to tell Donna how he feels? Absolutely crushing!) I really hope we see more out of Rocafort going forward.

Abnett is weaving a complex pattern of multiple plot points in this new team series and I for one cant get enough.
