    David Marquez does some great art on this issue. I'm continuing to love how he lays out the action beats in this comic. There's a very street level viciousnessto how he draws the fights. Read Full Review

    Top-to-bottom, Defenders is not only the best superhero team book at Marvel, but in all of comic books right now. Throw in Deadpool and another surprise player at the end and this tale gets taken to the next level. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 15, 2017

    The Defenders #6 is a solid issue while I am getting a little tired of the story there is a pretty good teaser at the end and the story did set up a great fight between The Defenders and Diamondback, really those pages are worth the price of admission alone. I am not really keen on Deadpool being introduced not sure why he is being brought in, but we will probably be seeing more of him in the next issue. It looks like we will be sticking with this “Kingpins of New York” storyline for at least a few more issues so hopefully, Bendis turns it around before it gets too stale. Read Full Review
