    Leonardo Romero's art is good, but there isn't much that seems visually challenging from the story. It's pretty paint-by-numbers, but still executed well. Read Full Review

    I am still interested in this series, but after the last issue, I was ready to love it. This issue spins it's wheels a bit and while I would love to see more Shuri/Groot and Rocket together, I wish the overall story here was stronger. Shout out to Aretha Franklin lovers everywhere, but if this book is going to garner any respect, Nnedi Okorafor needs to get things moving forward quickly. Read Full Review
