Cable (2020) #6

Nov 18, 2020

Despite this, Gerry Duggan does a good job with the dialogue, providing what is arguably his strongest work in the Cableseries thus far. As usual, Phil Noto's art is breathtaking, never missing a beat. Nathan learning humility and how to lose could be interesting moving forward, regardless of the frustrating nature of his battle. And, of course, the set up for Apocalypse vs. Genesis is palpable, a (hopefully) thrilling conclusion which readers will finally get their hands on next week.

Captain America (2018) #25

Nov 18, 2020

Coates has done wonders developing Sharon's character and through the Daughters of Liberty, he has done more for Peggy Carter's character than any modern writer. His run continues to be intriguing and politically conscious, though one often wonders when Steve himself will get his day in the sun as well. In that respect, it's certainly the outlier in the various Captain America runs, though that's hardly a bad thing.

Captain Marvel (2019) #24

Dec 9, 2020

As far as current Marvel titles go,Captain Marvelis consistently one of the best. Thompson's writing is quick-witted, funny, and emotional, and Garbett's pencils get the job done with an extra bang.

As far as single issues go, this one is very much a groundwork laying one, which Howard does well. Several interesting mysteries are presented and the character work done was much-needed.

New Mutants (2019) #14

Rod Reis proves yet again he's one of the best artists in the industry, and he provides so much life to the characters. Ayala's writing is fast-paced and it's clear that they not only understand the characters, but they belong on this title.

Power Pack (2020) #2

Dec 30, 2020

Power Packis easily one of the most enjoyable books out there right now. North's writing is fun and self-aware while Leon's art is wonderfully cartoony. For a lighthearted good time,Power Pack is a can't-miss book.
