This was probably my favorite issue yet. Lots of big ideas on the creation of supers in the MU, but with good character moments and solid action. Also noticed that despite a number of splash pages, this one didn’t read in five minutes - it felt meaty. Enjoying this run a lot so far!

Avengers #4

By: Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness
Released: Jul 4, 2018

How do the Avengers possibly defeat a crew of 2,000-foot-tall, nearly omnipotent Dark Celestials bent on annihilating the human race? While Thor and Hulk search for answers deep within the bowels of Old Asgard, we learn more about the untold history of Odin and his Prehistoric Avengers!

the green death reviewed Immortal Hulk #2 Jul 4, 2018
9.0

Very dark take on the Hulk, this reads like an intelligent horror comic and nothing at all like Pak’s Totally Awesome run (which I also enjoyed, but for very different reasons). The art and writing compliment each other well, really hope we get quite a few issues like this before the next dramatic tonal shift.

Immortal Hulk #2

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett
Released: Jul 4, 2018

A random small-town tragedy. A mystery illness that spreads with grief. A green glow on a lonely mountain. Three puzzle pieces that fit together to make a nightmare. And the only mind on Earth than can connect them up...belongs to the Immortal Hulk.

Snyder is one of my all time favs. New 52 Batman is near perfect. So far Justice League is pretty good but I feel like I dont really have that emotional connection to it yet. For some reason with most Justice League series it's all action action action and I feel no connection with the characters. Maybe that's why I liked Snyders Batman and the new Bendis Superman so much, it delves deeper into th more

Justice League #2

"THE TOTALITY" part two! The League faced an impossible decision...and now they must face the consequences! While Martian Manhunter and Batman attempt to recruit an old ally back into the fold, The Flash and Hawkgirl are blindsided by new challenges that could rewrite their mythologies!

I'm going to start by saying that I want Jorge Jimenez to draw as many books as it is humanly possible. He is amazing at his craft. Each character looks unique and different and the action looks just grand. Just one little thing. Please make Martian Manhunter a little more beefed up. When he looks all slender and slick it's just wrong.

As for the story it's good, but not great. It gets more

I think this is going to be my time to just realize that Snyder isn't the writer for me. I really liked the Court of Owls storyline but ever since then he's never quite landed for me. This has pretty great art and an epic feel, but the characters don't act strangely, none of them seem to have three dimensions - just a bunch of cyphers. I was hoping for a big bold first issue to get me back into th more

Scott Snyder takes the reins over The Justice League and expands on the ideas put forth in Metal and No Justice.

The banter and comradery between members of the League feel really good. Snyder even pokes some fun at Batman for the dark and gloomy demeanour.
The story moves smoothly with Martian Manhunter kinda in a center, but it all changes somewhere halfway through. League defea more

I'm in the minority but I quite enjoyed this issue. Kitty taking down Sythian (sp?) was inventive and made sense and I enjoy seeing villains dispatched by thinking rather than just punching. Only issue I have is that Guggenheim really keeps the secondary X-Men in the background and I'd be happier if they weren't around if he's not going to invest them with strong personalities.

I've been reading the old Claremont run one issue a day for the past month and a half and I'm two issues to the end of the original Dark Phoenix Saga (unintentionally good timing). The best compliment I can give this book is that the mysteries, the ease of which the characters interrelate and the feeling that this is building to something would fit right in those classic books. I've been enjoying more

It's a well written story that sets up a potentially very fun series. While lacking in action, it does compensate with character development and makes the perfect launch pad for the upcoming events. The art is stunning though every pages and the colors are great. The nostalgia is strong with this one and Zdarksy knows it and uses it to its full potential.
