    I become an even bigger fan of Scott Kolins every time I get a look at his highly detailed work and come to realize that not only is he delivering the art on this title which is currently shipping at an accelerated pace, but he's also providing the art on Joe Casey's year one Avenger miniseries. It also doesn't hurt that he's one of the best in the industry when it comes to the delivery of the big spectacles that are a regular part of comics, with Sunfire's battle with Titannus providing the firework show in this issue. However, the art also manages to turn in some solid work on Spider-Man's battle with Cardiac. The panel where Peter gets a good jolt when he tries to pick up the staff is a particularly effective visual (though one should ask why his spider-sense didn't warn him of the danger). The final page image also nicely conveys that this situation has gone completely off the rails for poor Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Kirkman said in an interview that he wanted Marvel Team-Up to be a one-stop introduction to the Marvel Universe, and in that respect he succeeds. His talent for juggling a large cast is worthy of attention, and Kolins' attempt to be Marvel's Jim Aparo is a winning aspect. This issue of Marvel Team-Up is not the worst of the series or the best. The story does move, and the artwork meets a quality standard. Read Full Review
