    I said it. Ramos is becoming more enjoyable. Hisfigures have more shape and show hope that maybe one day, theyll have spines supportingtheir bulging muscles.

That means hes a good storyteller. Read Full Review

    This title appears to be back on track, but still lacks a real purpose, especially with the destruction of most of Camp Hammond here and the fallout of Secret Invasion's Skrull infestation. Gage just needs to show me he has something long term planned for the title or a new direction of some kind and I'll be sold on sticking with this title for the long haul again. Read Full Review
