I never cared about Venom that much to pick up the main book. I've tried the Remender's and Bunn's runs in TPBs after they were done, I've tried the Costa's run to no avail , as it was awful at times. But seeing that this time it's going to be run by Cates and Stegman, it was a no brainer to try at least the first couple issues, as these two are some of my favourites in the industry.

This series is very good. Great leading character (he isn’t just an angry Hulk/Wolverine fusion, he is an honorable soldier, driven by his sense of duty and love for his family), and great story. If you are looking for something featuring adult characters in a more "traditional marvel way", give this book a try. I'm sure you won't regret it.

I think I'll enjoy Jim Zub's Champions a lot more than Waid's. The two standouts for me were Viv and Riri. Viv's emotionless responses are something I'm a sucker for. And Riri is actually interesting and has a personality, something that was missing for most of her Invincible Iron Man run. The overall plot is one of the weakest parts but if the character interactions remain on point, I'm not going more

There is a very Scott Campbell art vibe to the art in this that gives that reminder me of Danger Girl. It made me compare what I was reading throughout which highlighted how much of an influence it must have been. You have some of the same exaggerated looks and outfits to the characters. There is a bit of the same sisterhood among the main cast. That might not be a bad thing since the character of more

Domino looks to be a fun series with high action, humor, and interesting character story into the more morally grey mutants that are a lot of fun to follow.

The ultimate dream of liberal propaganda merchant must be to get people to buy their own propaganda. Here is an example. A very average story with (as usual) white people portrayed as evil racists and the liberal media lap it up. It's just not very good, but the barrage of hype surrounding the comic is such that weak minded liberals buy it.

Oh the sad butthurt nationalist freaks don't like when comics write things they don't agree with. Boo hoo! Go polish your boots and don't forget the white laces.

Nobodyisemo - May 20, 2018

It's a pretty solid first issue, I thought. The boyfriend isn't muslim (ie the person closest to Aisha), and he's portrayed positively. It's not that every white person is portrayed negatively, it's that you're fishing for a reason to avoid accepting other cultures.
