I'm standing on the hill here as the one person who liked this issue of Avengers. Maybe I'm coming at this issue with the privilege of not being completely unaware of what I'm reading. This is a dumb, fun book. I've accepted that. And I'm having fun. Do I want to see an all-powerful Doom vs Mephisto? Of course I do. Do I care that Thor's mom is the Phoenix and he has Phoenix powers? No, because I' more

Doctor Doom and his Multiversal Masters of Evil have come hunting Deathloks. And now there's only one Deathlok left, trapped inside the rubble of a besieged Avengers Mountain. Just in time for a new group of Avengers to rise from the ruins, with new members and at least one Avenger having been wildly transformed. And just who is the cosmic general ...

From a common reader pov, this might not be a 10/10, maybe not even close, but I couldn't care less, the Super Sons are my favorite duo and Tomasi is one of my favorite writers of all time. Reading this issue put a smile on my face from the beggining to end. I'm so sad they are not getting a new title but my hope will never die...

But a new day has dawned, and Jon Kent is now the Superman of Metropolis-all grown up and fighting for truth, justice, and the kinds of grown-up things that Superboy was only beginning to understand as a child. Now a ghost from Jon’s past has reared its head, and to ...

This could have just been an extended trailer of upcoming attractions like Incoming! or Infinite Frontier #0, but I'm delighted to say that MacKay, who's had a great couple of years in general, has more interesting things to say than that and pushes the trailer content into the background of a genuinely compelling character study of Kang that's worth reading on its own merits.

I bought this because I get a kick out of the Marvel preview one shots like Incoming. I didn’t realize that it was a Kang-centric story nor did I realize it was written by MacKay (obviously I saw Kang on the cover but didn’t really pay much attention to that, it was a total ComiXology impulse buy). MacKay is one of my current faves, but Kang is a bit fine IMO. Like the design but find Marvel t more

Finally, this piece of garbage and character assassination is over! Anyone who really thinks this is some masterpiece either didn't really read it and just rates it with big ratings because it's Tom King or is really just a sadist who enjoys seeing heroes thrashed.

Good set-up. I’ll be interested to see where this goes and I think the thrice monthly for six months style of release gives it a good length to tell an epic story that won’t bloat. We’ll see if that is a true prediction or just wishful thinking as things progress.

Super hyped for where PKJ is taking this book; shaking up the status quo in a really fun way. I hope they have some sort of connection between this and Morrison's SATA that can transition well into the Warworld Saga. I haven't been this excited for the Super-Line since Rebirth!

Action Comics #1035

By: Phillip K. Johnson, Sami Basri
Released: Sep 29, 2021

Superman keeps the abandoned Warworld weapon out of the hands of anyone who might misuse it. But now the Justice League questions his judgment. It’s time for Clark Kent to put up or shut up. In “Tales of Metropolis,” the Guardian comes to the city. Is this another step toward Future State?

This was a fun one-shot. The writing and art complimented each other really well and it gives a threat to take care of, some great martial arts action and a decent intro to Shang-Chi. These sorts of stories are often fully disposable but this was actually a great little one shot.

This reminds me of Ewing’s excellent and under-appreciated work on Ultimates, the scope is simply enormous and the action breathless.

At its core, this issue is retconning away the worst of Sins Past and all the related storylines. That's great. I'm very glad about that. I really don't know what to expect from the final issue of this run. The two week wait will be hard, assuming the spoilers don't come out ahead of time.

Well, Kindred does say "this final form" in reference to the different incarnations of Sarah and Gabriel, as in the body he's possessed in the moment, which is Sarah's.

I actually think there are two Kindreds. Unless the stuff with Spider-Man is happening at a different time. If it's not, Kindred has possessed both Sarah and Gabriel.

This gets an automatic pass for retconning past sins. I enjoy the heavy attention to continuity. Not enough writers write as though they've not even read a Wikipedia article on the character (I'm referring to you Loeb and Bendis). I like Spencer is trying to weave everything together. The problem, and why I just can't rate it any higher, was that even for someone like myself, who has read all of t more

Yes, but the huge disadvantage Reddit has is the upvote/downvote system. Something other platforms don't have. Say some unpopular stuff and you're going to the bottom of the page and that's kind of it. It doesn't really encourages diversity of opinion, it encourages echo-chambers.
