Thor debuts a new volume with an essence of back to origins. We have all his friends, Loki and the mythology of Asgard. However, he debuts a new villain who appears to be one of his biggest challenges. The art is perfect.

We are witnessing a new war in Krakoa that is much more internal than everyone imagines. Will this be the first Krakoan villain to return against the X?

With an edition focused on Sebastian Shaw, we know a little more about his objective as part of Hellfire. Using manipulation and lying tactics, he intends to use his son to defeat Emma and Kitty.

7.5

After an adventure of new mutants in space, we see a another-time adventure on Earth, which appears to be a filler arc.

Armor and Glob intend to search for mutants who have not yet arrived on Krakoa. Despite its importance to Dawn of X, this adventure seems to be weaker when compared to other titles.

X-Force presents a solid arc moving forward in leaps and bounds with each issue. This issue goes back to the rebirth mythology of the new era of mutants and raises a solid question "Should we fear death?"

Jean's history doesn't lie, she is the mutant who has witnessed "death" the most and having her this time resurrect the leader of the mutant revolution is significant. This makes X-for more

The Braddock brothers' battle finally arrives, but it doesn't progress that far, as the fight was interrupted by the dragon Shogo. This seems to have been the highlight of the edition. Only now did I realize that the uniforms changed, so Shogo's change was something interesting that worked as comic relief. Will he remain a dragon throughout his time in Avalon?

And this title can only make it worse. In addition to a totally uninteresting story, the art reaches unacceptable levels. It even seems like the people working on this title want it to be canceled.

First, for the title to make sense, a known villain had to be used who really sent the danger signal. You can't sell Apoth as a god and Kwannon as the mother of someone who is the only one ca more

X-men #3 achieves the perfect measure of humor and adventure while inserting a new group of "villains" into its mythology.

New Mutants continues as the comic relief of the new era of the X-Men. Each title has a different adventure and this one stands out for having space adventures, which can also be considered a home for mutants.

X-Force appears to be the comic book, in addition to X-Men, that will focus on X-Men's relations with Krakoa. And if that is the objective, it has everything to do very well.

This edition advanced the plot of the first edition and it was quite clear that they will follow a path of magic, away from the political plot of Krakoa.

Fallen Angels continues to distance itself from Dawn of X. Not only in terms of story, but also in terms of quality.

The edition lacks in different points, art, writing and character development. The art is dark, with frames displaced on parts of the characters' faces, the stories are uninteresting, both from Kwannon's past and present, and the characters, especially X-23 and Cable (who more

What are the other demons besides the bottle?

Iron Man returns in the new volume, giving a very personal touch to the character. He puts on the armor against a villain, but the biggest fight in this edition is internal. Tony has already lost everything, but it seems that there is someone who wants him to lose even more, those around him.

A great standalone, but not a special edition for the volume.

So Spider-Man arrived in his 900th issue and after all these adventures, Spider-Man remains the same, as do his villains. This spider story works very well as a standalone, but I don't believe it works so well for a special edition. It is expected that these editions will have large participations and even some twists and rev more

Edge of Spider-verse remains a book much more about presenting different Spider-Man verses than a grand adventure with a villain. This comic suffers the same problem as the others, where everything seems like little unconnected adventures, where on the final page they are recruited in some way, and in some adventures, not even that. This recruitment to face a villain, who doesn't even remember who more

Fallen Angels is the first of the mutant relaunches to enter as a limited series. A good move by Marvel, as after separating Betsy from Psylocke after these years. This character deserves more prominence and her own story.
