Absolute Carnage (2019) #1

Aug 9, 2019

When something comes along that makes a character like Venom nervous, you should be very afraid...and look forward to some great art and a great story for one of Marvel's most extreme characters.

Animosity #21

May 27, 2019

A well written, well drawn, and gorgeously colored issue that pauses the main plot of the series to offer some deeper thoughts on the relationship between mankind and nature.

An unfortunate case of too many cooks spoiling the broth as a decent story is crippled by too many artists on the same book.

Fists, bullets, and black magic continue to fly in a superb comic book that shows a criminal family falling apart at the worst possible time

Calamity Kate #4

Jun 17, 2019

A bittersweet ending to a storyline that has some good character moments, but if this issue grabbed your interest you're better off getting the first issue or waiting for a trade.

Aug 5, 2019

A decent story that is worth reading if you're looking for something different from Marvel, but cluttered and confusing artwork stop this comic from being the best it can be.

Ghost-Spider (2019) #1

Aug 23, 2019

While it doesn't necessarily breathe new life into the Spider-Man franchise, it's still a solid and very well-told story that is a showcase of everything that has made the hero great.

Wolverine: Exit Wounds #1

Jun 28, 2019

If you collect comics, it's a good book to have; but if you're in the mood to revisit some of Wolverine's greatest moments, you're better off re-reading the comics that inspired these stories.
