Finally, after years of floundering, we get the next step in mutant evolution. THIS is what should have grown out of the seeds planted by Chris Claremont years ago. While I have, most definitely, enjoyed certain X-MEN runs over the last 20 years (Whedon's EXTRAORDINARY,Morrison's NEW and any issue of Peter David's X-FACTOR remain favorites for different reasons), X-MEN RED is just what long time more

Milk Wars has one detraction against it in my eyes and that’s the fact that it spoils some of the central narrative of the Doom Patrol comic currently being published under the Young Animal line by Gerard Way and Nick Derington.

Orlando and Aco really click on action scenes; this reminds me of my favorite parts of their Midnighter run. Way provides all the weirdness that has made the current Doom Patrol so great, too. I'm really, really happy with what this issue brought.

The revival of TALES OF SUSPENSE had been, so far, such a paragraph pleasant surprise. Issue #101 was even better than the previous installment. Excellently written and drawn...kinetic and fun...TALES OF SUSPENSE #101 is the perfect action movie/spy drama/ buddy cop book that I didn't know I wanted.

I enjoyed MILK WARS Part 1 quite a bit. Steve Orlando has a certain chemistry with Aco that I haven't, yet, seen in any of his other work (unfortunately) . I can't help but think that I would have enjoyed this issue MUCH more if the core DOOM PATROL series was up to date. MILK WARS, obviously, continues from the current (late and unfinished) storyline going on in DOOM PATROL. I can't help but more

Every issue of MISTER MIRACLE is better than the one preceeding it and #6 is no exception. The panels following the revelation for why the new room was needed...Scott and Barda's reactions and interactions...made for a perfect moment. THIS is why I still read comics 30 years later. If you're not reading MISTER MIRACLE you're doing yourself a disservice.

It's tough to rate a book like this. I, personally, try to rate a book on its own, standalone, merits and not in relation to the overall story it's a part of. So...with that in mind, ANGEL SEASON 11 #12 is just ok. It isn't great but it's not a bad read in and of itself. As the conclusion to the most recent season of ANGEL, however, it is pretty damn bad. This season had no point and did NO more

Let's get this out the way, this cover is ugly as hell! Now, for the actual book, it's ok...The visual is detailed, but the faces do not show the right emotions in my opinion.

Much like Max Bemis's MOON KNIGHT, this "new" PUNISHER, by Matthew Rosenberg, seems to be a return to greatness for a character that is rarely used to his fullest potential. The "Punisher as War Machine" concept is a sales gimmick (an obvious one at that). However, the execution of said gimmick is flawless. Mr. Rosenberg's Frank Castle is smart, ruthless and possessing of a dry humor that is o more
