    The penultimate issue of "War of the Marvels" may seem like a headscratcher at first, but this issue sets the stage nicely for what appears to be one explosive conclusion.

    Reed has yet to run out of ideas for identity switches in this new series of setbacks for the title character (whoever that may turn out to be). Briones replaces Sana Takeda (who only does the cover), and his style of exaggerated anatomy this month recalls Brett Blevins (in a good way), but with a grungier paint job. His work fits the tone of Reed's potentially confusing story, giving each raving blonde her own distinct identity. Karla's glee at tossing people out of windows might be the most terrifying sight in the whole story. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #45 is the weakest chapter of the War of the Marvels so far. The twist is something of a wtf moment and the artwork, though it has its merits, is pretty rough. Read Full Review
