    Starbrand And Nightmask #2 makes great use of continuity, characters, and environment, and is becoming to be one of the series Im most excited about. Its fun, its fresh, and theres a big background to explore through both of the main characters. I hope this series sees more play throughout the Marvel universe, and I have some guesses as to how that could happen. Until then, Im definitely on board and my body is ready for the next installment of Starbrand And Nightmask. Read Full Review

    Artist Domo Stanton and colorist Jordan Boyd bring the right amount of cartoon like visuals to make it feel like they're waiting for Marvel to announce Starbrand and Nightmask: The Animated Series. The details on faces aren't the greatest, but they do capture emotions well to sell the more darker and villainous scenes. Stanton is really strong when it comes to both body types and diversity because the main background is a college campus mostly. All in all, Starbrand and Nightmask #2 fits the niche of being a slice-of-life comic with superhero undertones to great effect. Lowering two of the strongest Marvel Heroes to such a relatable level is an achievement, and let's hope the good times can continue for Kevin and Adam. Read Full Review

    The decision to focus on Adam and the balance between superhero adventures and building a supporting cast serve this issue well. The writing brings a lot of great ideas to the table, even if they don't always gel, and the art has the opposite problem, being technically weak but effective on the whole. While it has its flaws, it's a really enjoyable product and a lovely deviation from the event-driven mentality that dominates comics today. Fans of thoughtful, character driven teen hero adventure will likely find something to love here and it seems like Weisman is only beginning to reveal his plans for the series. Starbrand and Nightmask hasn't hit its stride just yet, but it's certainly on its way up. Read Full Review
