Axis: Hobgoblin #3

Dec 22, 2014

AXIS: Hobgoblin #3 looks beautiful but lacks some of the elements that made the first two issues so great. More importantly, the series feels like it's lacking proper closure, and the character arcs seem incomplete.

Secret Wars 2099 #1

May 31, 2015

Secret Wars 2099 #1 introduces a new world that's very accessible and a very interesting new version of Captain America. These new ideas aside, Peter David's writing leaves the stakes of the series unclear at this point.

Secret Wars 2099 #2

Jun 14, 2015

Secret Wars 2099 #2 seems less like the second chapter of an arc and more like a #1A. It's still unclear what the series is about, but the growing world remains interesting.

Secret Wars 2099 #3

Jul 13, 2015

Secret Wars 2099 #4

Aug 18, 2015

Secret Wars 2099 #4 is action-packed and begins to pay off everything that the book has been building towards, but because the stakes have been low throughout the series, some of the most powerful moments don't reach their highest potential.

Spider-Man 2099 (2014) #2

Aug 19, 2014

Spider-Man 2099 #2 sacrifices action to go deep on Miguel's personal relationships, and still maintains a fast pace that keeps the reader excited about the series' future. That said, the issue is mostly set-up for future payoffs.

Spider-Man 2099 (2014) #3

Sep 7, 2014

Spider-Man 2099 #3 uses action to define characters and relationships. It shows that having powers does not make a person powerful.

Oct 20, 2014

"Spider-Man 2099 #5" does a great job at getting many different versions of Miguel O'Hara into the world of "Spider-Verse," but fans of the series' first arc will find an entirely different type of story-telling here.

Jan 12, 2015

Spider-Man 2099 #7 has a great sequence involving The Punisher of the future, but seems to have no impact on the larger "Spider-Verse" story and had few character-defining moments.

Peter David made an interesting choice by ending the series without mentioning the book's original concept, implying that individual relationships are more worthy of saving than the future.

Spider-Man 2099 (2015) #1

Oct 20, 2015

Spider-Man 2099 #1 makes all the right moves for a series opener. A well-defined lead character, fast-paced and smart world building, and stakes that matter on a number of levels.

Spider-Man 2099 (2015) #2

Nov 2, 2015

Spider-Man 2099 #2 takes an unorthodox approach by skipping on action and diving deep into the psyche of the main character. This chapter will better be judged as part of an arc, rather than a stand-alone issue.

David and Sliney use Spider-Man 2099 #4 to introduce us to the new status quo of Captain America 2099. Readers hoping for answers to previous issues' cliffhangers will have to wait.

"Spider-Man 2099 #5" is the most action-packed issue of the reboot to date and its fast-paced battle makes it the best chapter since the relaunch, despite not addressing any of the dangling plot points.

Spider-Man 2099 (2015) #6

Feb 15, 2016

Spider-Man 2099 #6 avoids the characters and plots readers and creators have been investing in for five issues. It tells a completely new story that is hopefully part of a larger, more-satisfying picture but for now continues to paint a disjointed picture of what to expect from the series.

Although Spider-Man 2099 #7 continues to ignore the series' major plot lines, it tackles lofty ideas regarding God and superheroes in a self-contained story that makes it much more satisfying than recent issues.

Spider-Man 2099 #12 missed opportunities to create a eye-popping battle between Miguel and The Sinister Six. Moreover, the series feels unimpassioned, despite the high stakes and interesting twists.

Spider-Man 2099 (2015) #13

Aug 21, 2016

Spider-Man 2099 #13 is connected to the larger "Civil War II" story in only the most superficial ways at this point. This new arc seems to abandon the stakes that had been steadily building over the last few issues. This book still struggles with sticking to a core story.

Spider-Man 2099 #16 is one of the best issues of this volume. The creators stuff it with so many characters in an energetic battle, plus a very fun incarnation of J. Jonah Jameson. The story includes some very unexpected twists that allows it to work on multiple levels.

Superior Spider-Man Team Up #12 not only gives an insightful flashback into Otto Octavius' past, it also serves as a swan song to the entire Superior era. The art by Frenz/Buscema is creative, iconic and engaging.
