Agents of Atlas (2019) #1

Aug 7, 2019

Marvel seems to be spinning a bunch of fun titles out ofWar of The Realms, and Agent's of Atlas might easily be the best one yet. It's a nice little corner of the MU being showcased here and if you are looking for something different and fun, give'Agents of Atlas'#1 a try.

Alpha Flight: True North #1

Sep 4, 2019

Alpha Flight: True North is telling three stories, and as such, each is segment is different in tone and style. Yet ultimately they all have something in common: a strong emotional core about dealing with the past. They all also succeed in execution and make great use of the shorter format as well.

Criminal (2019) #2

Feb 13, 2019

'Criminal' is one of the best ongoings of the moment and a perfect reason to actually buy and read monthly books. With it's shorter arcs and bonus material it's a no brainer actually. Let's hope this goes on for a while because it's a great world that deserves to be visited every month.

Doctor Strange (2018) #10

Jan 29, 2019

Doctor Strange #400 is the kind of anniversary issue all celebratory chapters should strive to emulate. It pushed the current story forward toward a huge moment, yet also has some nice, quite callbacks and stories that give credence to the timelessness of the character in question.

Tales From The Dark Multiverse: Batman: Knightfall #1

Oct 16, 2019

Tales From The Dark Multiverse Batman Knightfallis a great start to what looks like to be a fun series of books. DC seems to be going hard on these Multiverse ideas. If the rest of the books have this twisted sense and gorgeous art readers are in for a treat.
