• Despite the heroes' new future-seeing ally, the crime business is treating Wilson Fisk VERY well. So well, in fact, that his jealous competitors are MURDERING the Kingpin's men.
•  And to make matters worse, the linchpin of Fisk's operation - an inhuman with the uncanny ability to stay incognito - is getting ill.
•  Can the Kingpin find a way to keep his business afloat or is his time on top finally finished?

    This isn't a Kingpin who needs a Daredevil to make the stories worthwhile, this is Wilson Fisk commanding his story with power and style. For years he's been considered as Marvel's Lex Luthor, and with good reason, but here that comparison is an insult; instead Fisk is Marvel's Al Capone, and deserves " no, demands " your respect. Forget the capes and masks for a while and all hail the Kingpin. Read Full Review

    This issue takes CW II: Kingpin on a different direction than what I expected, I think it suffers from being too unfocused plot-wise but I really enjoy the way the book looks from Lopez Ortiz's lines to Lopes' coloring and Lanham's letters. Read Full Review

    It's hard to argue that Civil War II: Kingpin amounts to much more than crime movie formula thrown into the world of superheroes. It's also hard to argue that that's a bad thing when it's done this well. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Aug 5, 2016

    The Civil War II tie-in is more present in this issue than most, as Kingpin is making the most of the opportunities given whilst the heroes are at odds with one another. Read Full Review

    Rosenberg gives us an amazing story and incredible dialogueas he leads us through the Marvel Universe's villains. That said, not a wholelot seems to be happening yet and this series is half over. The art fits thetone of the book but overall I'm not a huge fan. Read Full Review
