    I'm running out of ways to say that Champions is one of best books of the year. That's it; that's my whole review. Just go buy it and read it and love it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 6, 2019

    This volume of Champions demonstrates its dedication to powerful, long-term plotting in its third issue. It may not be an "OMG you have to start reading this" triumph on its own, but it patiently builds upon its solid foundation and rewards committed readers with glimpses of a magnificent structure taking shape. I doubt this arc will disappoint once it's completed, and it may become truly extraordinary. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Mar 10, 2019

    For the OG members of the Champions, it seems like Zub is trying to break them down just to see how they pick themselves up. Between Kamela giving her all to being the team leader and Sam still dealing with the loss of his powers, it seems like the characters all have big chips riding on their shoulders. It's a different tone than what we've normally seen from this book. Time will tell if this more serious tone is for better or worse. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Gwen Dylan Stacy Mar 8, 2019

    I'm not sure if the second bit is intentional but I have a feeling it might be. Especially since a big fight seems to be on the horizon for everyone still left behind. I'd assume that this will either bring the newer squad together or further tear them apart. Especially when considering that training earlier that day had been met with a few hiccups. Distractions. Either way, I suggest checking out what the future holds for this 3.5 out of 5 title. Especially since a lot of the writing for favorites here seems to widely differ from how they'd previously been written. Read Full Review

    Nice, enjoyable Champions issue maybe tackles a few topics a bit too serious for its bright, casual demeanor. Read Full Review

    Champions 3 is a very chill issue that leads into the opening arc’s finale next issue. My only complaint is that I wish we got to know the newer members more

    Sam gets attacked by an old nemesis, the team has to save Dust from getting embroiled in an anti-mutant protest, and most importantly, Miles connects the dots and realizes the true cost of Mephisto's do-over. All the plotlines are good (do we have to do them all at once?), but that last one is a feelings steamroller and watching it absolutely flatten Miles is rough - in the best possible way.

    This was pretty good. I felt a very... 60s vibe in the beginning with the narration explaining everyone's power as they trained and talked to each other. It felt like an early Uncanny X-Men issue. I don't know if I liked that or not. Part of me was into it but another part of me thought it was very dated. I do like where the narration went with Spider-Man, though. That part worked. I also like all the continuity callbacks here to X-Men Disassembled. The stuff with Kaldera felt very out of left field, but I guess it's cool to see that plotline from the Nova tie-in for the Infinity event come back into play... I don't know, this issue felt very jumbled but I was into each part of it well enough not to mind.

    Transitional issue ? Really ? That fast ?
    Ok we see a training with the newbies. We see that sam don't fit weel (Damn we know that, that move forward about it. It's boring me). We see a strange mephisto who seem to care about miles (Damn that weird). I like Amadeus trying to cheer up Miles and then Miles discovering the death of the girl he saved (Before the retcon). Oh and Dust make anti-mutant even more angry that they was endangering the team. Don't care about Kaldera. Don't know her.

    Cover - The kraven variant. Not related but really nice. 1/2
    Writing - The story is well told, Zub try to put gravitas. But don't think that was what this team need. 2.5/3
    Arts - Some panel without background, but not much. Cumming more

    I’m way more interested in the Mephisto thing and Spider-Man than the teens doing group stuff. Give me more weeping over the graves of children who could have been saved!
