Dastardly And Muttley #1

Aug 17, 2017

Dastardly and Muttley " based on the classic Hanna-Barbera characters " is a surreal story with a lot of setup, but ultimately an enjoyable ride.

Doctor Strange (2018) #1

Jun 5, 2018

Talking of painting, this is a beautiful book. Jesus Saiz is penciller, inker and colourist on this title and his mastery of superheroes here seems a mix of Alan Davis and David Marquez, slick characters who live on the page. Marry that to the paint-look of the monsters and marvels, and the smooth ink line for the central characters, from the same hand, the two blend well on the page. It's almost like" magic.

Generations: Iron Man & Ironheart #1

Aug 24, 2017

Unfortunately, Generations: The Iron is a waste of time, talent, and money. Spend yours elsewhere.

Immortal Hulk #1

Jun 5, 2018

It's all sorts of psychological subtext made green flesh and it's a grand start. I enjoyed the multiple personalities of the Bill Mantlo and Peter David runs immensely, as I did Bruce Jones haunting run. It looks as if Al Ewing and Joe Bennett's run as The Immortal Hulk is fit to join them"

Runaways (2017) #1

Sep 4, 2017

Some will dismiss this as fanfic. A way to get away from what a writer originally wrote, with the audience given what they want rather than what they need. I don't know. I think these days giving the audience a bit of what they want, as long as it comes with a price, is no bad thing.

X-Men: Red (2018) #1

Feb 1, 2018

That's what X-Men Red is. Something closer in concept to zombie epics of the Walking Dead or 28 Days Later. It's about survival and a changing human/mutant landscape. This would be a fundamental change to the mutant books, if others fall into line.
