    OverallAlan Davis has put together what is turning out to be a really enjoyable story. I'm kind of liking the juxtaposition of Science Versus Magic and the element of altered events being brought into play. For example, Namor's memory of the second world war with Captain America seemed to have been altered in the last issue, but is now as it was originally or is it? I also rather enjoyed the brief cameos from Spider-man, Daredevil, and The Fantastic Four and hope that they get brought into the story a little by the time the next issue comes around.

    It may be a story that crosses generations, realms, and dimensions, but it feels intimate, and best of all it works. This is the secret event Marvel isn't telling you about. Read Full Review

    Tarot #2 is a silly issue that still manages to be greater than the sum of its parts and is a pretty enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Though this has the charming peppiness of an old-school crossover, the script itself is fairly wooden and plodding, just marking time until the cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    TAROT #2 improves upon the first issue. It still has its flaws, chiefly Diablo Exposition and again an overabundance of characters. Paul Renauds art is more than up to the task though, and there are enough interesting pieces to keep reading. Read Full Review

    I really like this, but I just know some people won't. It's written in a sort of dated way, reminiscent of classic Marvel comics, and that can be a turn off. But I think everyone can enjoy the art at least, right?

    Let me start by saying I am biased.

    The Defenders will always add a point or three to my opinion just for being a favourite.

    That said, this issue is quite enjoyable despite the Avengers feeling like background characters. In many ways Diablo is the main character more than any of the heroes. A villian whom Stan lee admits is his least favourite villian he created and has always been sort of third tier at best.
    However, here he comes across as a legit threat despite remaining his usual bumbling arrogant self.

    Great bits:
    The Banner and Vision impersonating Ant-Man and Yellowjacket (though exactly WHY I am not certain).
    Surfer being sent out for coffee spoke to Diablo's ridiculousness well. < more

    Tarot was good enough for it's first issue, let's see if Davis can improve upon that.

    The Good:
    Diablo is a bit cool here.

    The Bad:
    It's a bit standard and boring too.

    It's passable but that's it.

    Besides its many other retro qualities, this comic has a 20th-century belief in "more heroes = better comic, always."
