Astonishing X-Men (2017) #6

Dec 13, 2017

The Life of X arc reaches its conclusion and offers plenty of spotlight for fan favorites. Soule's work should be commended for creativity. While clearly working within the confines of Legacy's mandates, he manages to achieve real potential and a solid springboard for Xavier's future.

Astonishing X-Men (2017) #7

Jan 9, 2018

"A Man Called X," is a decent start to another story arc in which the X-Men will be required to deal with the aftermath of a man who has spent death in anything other than eternal rest and instead has been locked in endless torment. Naturally, no one comes back the same way they left. I'm sure Xavier will be no exception. The question is, will we be the better for it?

Batman: White Knight #8

May 18, 2018

Even those who don't read DC Comics or enjoy their catalog as a whole should recognize the inspired work of writerSean Murphy and furthermore have the ability to acknowledge that a well-written story is hard enough to come by in our current period of comics but in 2018 White Knight truly stands among the strongest of those tales on a very high pedestal.

Dazzler: X-Song #1

Jun 7, 2018

Dazzler X-Song #1 is an insightful and well-made self-contained character story with strong relevant themes, propelling this often underused X-Woman forward. The decision of our lightengale to be a hero for everyone is a strong theme expected to follow her into Astonishing X-Men this summer.

New Mutants: Dead Souls #1

Mar 28, 2018

This is actually the ragtag combo I have been wanting for years. As the admin for the New Mutants fan page, I watch fans wage endless debates over which era was better. The original troupe or post-Inferno. For me, I love the New Mutants and that means, I love them all.

New Mutants: Dead Souls #3

May 12, 2018

Issue #3 gains serious momentum as unexpected events unfold that provide clarity to the purpose of the mixed roster as well as a hint toward Karma's enigmatic and seemingly nefarious intent behind the team's reformation which not only provides some much-needed connection for the reader, but also confirms that the overall 5 issue series is interwoven into a greater plot yet to be revealed.

Ninjak #0

Nov 14, 2017

While this is a flashback issue, it is all done with original art and a unique format. While the bottom half of the pages relate history, the top half entails a current mission that opens leads to the next volume, Ninja-K, which will be written by Christos Gage.

Sacred Creatures #5

Dec 29, 2017

More novel than comic book, Sacred Creatures commands attention. Its ability to shape elaborate details while retaining a simplicity that shrugs clich tropes and devices propels this series into a class of true standouts and one of the best newcomers of the year.

Spirits of Vengeance (2017) #5

Feb 16, 2018

In the fifth and final issue, Spirits of Vengeance attains sheer victory and is likely among the short list of Marvels better series of the past year. Or two. Maybe three

Youngblood (2017) #7

Dec 24, 2017

This issue for all intents an purposes bridges the gap between the events after Brynetec and Diehard's next move. Though by no means a standout, the events and story within issue #7 is one of necessity in order to provide the context for the plot to move forward.

Youngblood (2017) #9

Feb 19, 2018

Rob Towe and Chad Bowers continue onward with sure footing and real determination in the clear effort to make this series of Youngblood speak to longtime fans and attain the one thing that has alluded previous volumes and creative efforts. Consistency and longevity. With multiple layers of plots being laid and executed well, they could achieve just that.

Youngblood (2017) #10

Mar 29, 2018

The stakes continue to get bigger with every issue. For readers who are seeking alternative comics within the heroic team genre but looking for a book which is truly forging its own path without the strict control of larger publishers and editorial edicts, Youngblood may well fit that bill.

Youngblood (2017) #11

May 9, 2018

Issue 11 marks exciting new twists in the return of an old foe. One which is probably the most powerful and deadly the team has faced yet as the highly anticipated Blood War begins.
