Archie Meets Riverdale (2022) #1

May 11, 2022

The plot in these books is never that serious or worthwhile because the fun comes from the tongue-in-cheek humor of the crossover itself. The art is perfect for this book and the writing is so fun, making it a light, enjoyable read for a good laugh.

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty (2022) #1

Jun 13, 2022

This run feels like the perfect story for Steve and it's clear Lanzing and Kelly have a lot of love for the character and the lore. Carmen Carnero is one of the best artists at Marvel right now and having such amazing talent on this book for art and writing makes this one a "can't miss" title, especially for Cap fans.

Captain Marvel (2019) #38

May 30, 2022

It doesn't seem like there's much going on on the surface inCaptain Marvel#38, but Thompson uses this issue to have a good time and weave together deeper plots for both Binary and Carol. The art in this issue is perfect, with Figeri and Lopez making every page expressive and eye-catching for the reader to enjoy.

Giant-Size X-Men (2020): Thunderbird #1

May 3, 2022

Thunderbirdmakes me want to read more of this team taking on this character in the future. The characters they crafted in this story are wonderful and the issue itself is beautifully heartwarming. I can't wait to read more of John Proudstar inX-Mencomics in the future. This issue is a perfect opportunity to redefine John Proudstar and introduce a whole slew of new readers to the character they might have never met or forgotten about. As far as X-Men comics go, this was easily one of the most touching issues in a long time.

Hellionsends the series just as it began: it's emotional, it's weird, and it's delightful.

Immortal X-Men (2022) #3

Jun 22, 2022

Immortal X-Men #3 is a sly and smart way to set up an event, as well as a deeply interesting character study of one of the Krakoan era's most interesting characters.

Legion of X (2022) #1

May 23, 2022

While the book often feels aimless and out of place with its writing, Bazaldua is quite consistent with providing visually intriguing art throughout.

Marauders (2022) #2

May 4, 2022

Marauders#2 doesn't really do anything that special to "wow" readers or convince anyone that this is a series to watch out for, which is probably the most disappointing aspect of the book. What it does do, however, is feature a cast of incredibly interesting characters who deserved a place in the Krakoa X-Men books and give them a fun dynamic to boot.

Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit (2021) #1

Dec 20, 2021

It feels authentically Ms. Marvel and at the end of the day, that's all I can really ask for. Samira Ahmed seems to really understand what made this character so popular to readers and Andres Genolet's pencils feel like the perfect choice for this title. His art is light, it'sfun, and I couldn't think of a better artist for a title like this.

New Mutants (2019) #24

Feb 9, 2022

New Mutants#24 is like eating a bowl of your favorite comfort food. Ayala takes a step back and really examines these characters, allowing them a moment to reflect and heal

New Mutants (2019) #25

May 16, 2022

Rod Reis' art is gorgeous as always, and there are truly few better duos at Marvel Comics than that of Vita Ayala and Rod Reis. Ayala takes Illyana's character in such a new direction that it's the most interesting thing to happen to her since the Krakoa era started. This story is just getting started, and I for one can't wait to see where it goes.

S.W.O.R.D. (2020) #10

Nov 17, 2021

S.W.O.R.D.continues to be one of the most consistent titles in the X-line, always fitting a great story into the 20-something pages of allotted space. Ewing's storytelling shines and Wiz-Kid finally gets his day in the sun.

X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special (2021) #1

Nov 24, 2021

X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special doesn't deliver on its promise to give a title to celebrate 30 years of X-Force and instead, gives a Cable story with the most boring X-Force line-up to date.

X-Men (2021) #8

Feb 16, 2022

X-Men#8 might not be the most plot-heavy title in the series, but it rightfully uses this break from the main plot to shine a spotlight on its characters. Synch hopefully gets his first of many spotlight issues in the future, laying out the groundwork for an arc for his character.

X-Men (2021) #10

Apr 13, 2022

The Gameworld plot begins to kick off this issue, which might be the most exciting thing about it plotwise. Hopefully, though, the next issues can keep up this trend of utilizing the cast more fully because the X-women on Gameworld just sounds like a blast.

X-Men (2021) #11

X-Men#11 is a strong issue, featuring some forward momentum in the plot and what is arguably Duggan's best work writing the whole team roster.

X-Men (2021) #12

Jun 22, 2022

Larraz's artwork is beautiful as always, making every issue look like a 10/10 comic. Duggan's writing has picked up plot wise and seems to have secured himself a pretty good formula for how to handle the changing roster of the X-Men title in the Krakoa era.
