Having two of the most important people in Spider-Man's life be the protagonists in a tie-in to Amazing Spider-Man's Beyond era works so well.

The 200th issue of Black Panther doesn't bring us any closer to finding out who is behind the assassination attempts on T'Challa's sleeper agents, but there are some quiet character moments worthy of recognition.

One would think a series featuring two iconic leaders of the Avengers would put more of the focus on them, but Captain America/Iron Man somehow manages to make them bystanders in their own team-up book.

It is cool to see callbacks to current themes like the Ravencroft Institute and forgotten villains like Carrion and Vermin, so for readers looking for an different Spider-Man story, they should be in luck.

What we have here readers is a compelling superhero mystery baked into gritty street-level story. Yes, the parallels between the Sentinel/Lunatic and Batman/Joker are evident, though they don't detract from the overall story being told. If anything they help enhance the story.

It's nice to see a former sidekick have an original thought of their own that doesn't just go along with Batman's teachings. Hopefully this leads to a status quo change for the parties involved.

One of the most endearing things to come out of the Marvel's Voices anthologies is seeing the respective group of creators tell stories featuring a diverse group of superheroes. Creators such as Jim Terry, Nyla Innuksuk, Rebecca Roanhorse, and more educate readers on the perspective of indigenous characters.

Another bit of fun fan service is the revelation of the meaning behind the Dark Horse comic's title, and a showdown several issues in the making.

The continuing expansion of the cast helps to keep the mystery building, and watching a group of teenagers attempt to navigate multiple surprises and revelations is spot-on.

Veronica Eden has a long way to go before she can be considered a viable threat, and she is already on the verge of being overshadowed by the villain teased for the next issue.

If you're ready for satirical take on dystopian product manufacturing, look no further than Juni Ba's Monkey Meat. If you're not entirely sure what Monkey Meat is, don't worry, because it's not entirely clear as you're reading the first part of this anthology series.

An intense fight is upcoming in the next issue, which should provide even more clues as to who is really behind these threats.

The art feels young and full of energy, and matches what one would expect to see in a comic featuring the more colorful Robins.

The first issue from writer Mike Richardson and artist Jordi Armengol perfectly sets up the superhero mystery, with enough intrigue to leave readers guessing as to what path the story will take next.

Some of the creatures and monsters may not be recognizable, but it doesn't take away from the story of a girl in search for answers. The highlight of the issue is the debuts of Thor and Storm, who are brother and sister.

No One Left to Fight II also continues to lean into its comparisons to Dragon Ball Z, with Vale's secret weapon to save the world cleverly named after a Goku attack. The art and colors are both powerful and vibrant, which accurately match the vibe of the comic.

Those curious to return to the Wastelands will find plenty to enjoy in this installment. However, it all still feels like rehashing an old project that's already been done several times over. On the positive side, the one-and-done nature of the issue at least makes it easy for a first time reader to pick it up.

Fiorelli, Gomez, and Medina meld their styles together to prevent any unnatural transitions, which is greatly helped by Rosenberg and Caramagna's contributions of consistency.

If readers jumping into the book are looking forward to seeing the two Avengers in the spotlight, then they will come away disappointed. Secretly, the star of the first issue is Veronica Eden, a Hydra villain with nebulous goals.

Crafting a relevant tie-in to a major comic book event can be a tricky beast. Thankfully, Death of Doctor Strange: Spider-Man #1 is an entertaining tie-in to the Marvel event series currently taking place.

Marvel's new era of Black Panther gets off to a captivating start. Whereas the previous volume by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuna primarily took place in the stars, John Ridley, Juann Cabal, and Federico Blue deliver the beginnings of an espionage tale.

Some stories are better told with shades of grey, and We Only Kill Each Other falls in this category.

Similar to its main story running through the Spider-Man Beyond era, Amazing Spider-Man #78.BEY delivered a ton of enjoyable moments.

The art by Baldemar Rivas, Romulo Fajardo Jr., and Steve Wands matches the tone a reader would expect from a comic featuring Robins. There are young and vibrant colors throughout, and the character acting manages to capture the perfect facial expressions.
