Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #78.BEY

Nov 17, 2021

Amazing Spider-Man #78.1 is a fun little tie-in to the main series but doesn't really add much to the main Beyond storyline. It feels like non-essential reading and is more of a fun misadventure starring Misty Knight and Colleen Wing on a side-mission for Maxine Danger and the Beyond Corporation. The quirky tone is in overdrive with Misty and Colleen as they face the new "villain" in the comic, who is unimpressive yet functional to get the plot going.

Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #79

Nov 24, 2021

Amazing Spider-Man #79 continues the Beyond storyline with Kraven The Hunter as the lead villain. The story explores more of Ben Reilly's emotional stakes not just for this comic but for the Beyond storyline as a whole. Readers will also get some cool, good-old-fashioned Spidey super-heroics. When it finally transitions to Kraven's part in the comic, the art is well done, the characters look good, and the action is clear, dynamic, and easy to follow.

Black Panther (2021) #1

Nov 24, 2021

Black Panther #1 by John Ridley does a fine job setting up a new adventure for T'Challa. It has a solid opening and establishes the new threat along with the emotional stakes for Black Panther going forward. However, some of the main plot elements were partly underwhelming, but the subject matter leaves room for a good storyline that can go well if handled properly in the series.

Fantastic Four Anniversary Tribute #1 delivers a solid comic remake of some of the Fantastic Four's seminal stories. It provides a comic where readers can enjoy the original stories by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby with modern artists redrawing the stories in new and striking ways. It's a comic book that both new and longtime fans of the Fantastic Four can appreciate.

Kang the Conqueror (2021) #4

Nov 17, 2021

Kang The Conqueror #4 brings the story of the young time traveler full circle as he returns to the far future. But this is where the story shifts from Kang's war against himself to his romance with Ravonna. The series and this comic hinges on the relationship between Kang and Ravonna, and that takes center stage with all the battles and conflicts as window dressing for the comic. The art and colors by Carlos Magno and Espen Grundetjern are spectacular with imagery that does Kang The Conqueror justice.

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

Nov 17, 2021

S.W.O.R.D. #10 continues the series' new story arc which is in full-swing in this issue. After the revelation in the last issue, Wiz-Kid takes center stage in this comic. At first, some of the things he brings up are interesting, then it gets repetitive and uninteresting as the comic goes on. Mileage will vary on on whether what he says is compelling or not. The fight with the Lethal Legion gets some development, and introduces a neat concept for this current iteration of the villains, but not too much happens there.
