Age Of X-Man: X-Tremists #2

Apr 13, 2019

Overall, rating this book is purely difficult, because it depends on the readers expectations and interpretation of storytelling and character build-up. If you are a fan of a given character(s) and can keep an open mind, I recommend this book. Otherwise, it may not be for you.

AGE OF X-MAN: X-TREMISTS #3 is not the best comic book, but it gives the readers something to feel instead of just a cliff-hanger to sell comic the next issue.

Black Panther (2018) #4

Oct 5, 2018

The character development and story as a whole seems to be moving a little slow, but I feel that is part of the mystery. As Coates noted on the last page; Hang tight, its all part of the journey! I am anticipating the next issue to answer more questions while extending to the five galaxies of the Empire.

Thomas uses some hardcore adult language, but the dialogue is very acceptable. He chooses the words and timing to engage the reader in a deep culture. Randolph's artwork excels a hip-hop superhero style that intrigues the imagination. Emilio Lopez uses beautiful bright and vivid colors to bring out the magic in each panel. It's the power of Deron Bennett lettering that draws the attention and guides the reader to connect the all aspects of this story.

The artwork by Joe Bennent and Ruy Jose are incredibly grotesque in his depictions of the Hulk and each hollow shell character. He creates a magnificent and chilling version of Hell. The page where Hulk tears a certain someone into pieces, Bennents art will make your stomach churn. Paul Mounts coloring skills excels in this issue as he switches between black and white to the modern-old school horror elements that perfectly accentuates the various apocalyptic and symbolic energy of the imagination.

Immortal Hulk #13 is a stunning conclusion to our time in Gamma Hell. Judging from the revelations of this issue, were just getting started and I could not be happier about that. My only complaint is that the confrontation between the Hulk and Banners dad is too brief. However, he had his spotlight in the last issue.

Ewing continues to knock out the brilliant psychodynamics with Immortal Hulk #15. Kyle Hotzs artwork and coloring by Paul Mounts shows how well they work together for a modern day dark and horrific style with an old-school touch. The artwork and colors on Ewings Samsons flashback story jump out and immediately catches the eye. I cannot wait to see who and what Ewing and his amazing talented team will shine the darkness upon next.
