Not a fan of Deadpool enough to buy it regularly but as a Gambit fan I had to pick this up. It wasn't great but it also wasn't terrible either and I actually enjoyed the art more than I thought I would.

Deadpool v Gambit #1

Gambit-one of the smoothest, best-looking operators in the world of the X-Men. Deadpool-one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags in the world of everything. Naturally, these guys got beef. But do you know what they have in common? A secret history of working together to pull con-jobs. That's right-the grift is on as the Regeneratin' Degenerate an...

Not a huge fan of Magic titles but this I do really enjoy! Aaron seems to have a great understanding of Strange and nobody draws weird better than Bachalo. What I really love is the creation of the Empirikul, they seem like a great addition to the Marvel Universe and while some Marvel heroes have a huge list of adversaries I think Doctor Strange is in need of a few more. The current storyline more

Warren Ellis writes a great James Bond and really sets the standard high. I feel sorry for whoever has to write this next.

James Bond #7

By: Warren Ellis, Jason Masters
Released: Jun 22, 2016

After World War Two, army intelligence groups created ghost cells called "stay-behinds" across Europe in the event of a Warsaw Pact surge. "EIDOLON" is the story of a SPECTRE stay-behind structure - ghost cells of SPECTRE loyalists acting as sleepers until the time is right for a SPECTRE reformation and resurgence. The time is now.

I went into this being a fan of Action Man as a kid and my expectations weren't high. I don't think anyone will look back in 20 years time saying this was a definitive Action Man but it has enough to be enjoyable. I could see myself continuing to buy this more in a limited series format than a regular series but either way for the moment I will try out issue 2 next month.

I don't think this issue was really integral to Superman Rebirth but it was well written & and some of Tom Grummett's best art in years. If DC gave Grummett a Superman title (Steel, Superboy,or any other Superman) to draw with the team that inked and colored this issue I think I'd be back in 90's Superman heaven.

I haven't missed an issue of this since it started. Too me it's felt like one long DC What If or Elseworlds where anything can happen. I wouldn't want to see any of this stuff happen in the main DCU but being able to read it here, self contained with infinite possibilities feels just right. Here's hoping they do an Injustice II comic when the new game comes out.

It feels like they have slowed the Flash down a little which you would think was a bad thing but it turns out to be what this title needed.

I have been complaining to anyone that would listen how much I hated Detective Comics during New52 but this stuff has blown me away how good it feels. I know I'm still reading the same universe but this is good enough to make you forget there ever was a New52 in the first place.

I'm not going to pretend I've ever really been a true Aquaman fan and at some points I've absolutely hated the character. Like quite a few other people, Rebirth is the reason I gave it another try and so far I'm enjoying it. While never being a big Brad Walker fan before I think this would be his best work so far and seems to fit in well with Abnett's writing. The storyline doesn't seem too b more

The formula for this comic is so simple and it works perfectly, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Dan Jurgens. A combination of action scenes to live up to it's title mixed in with just enough personal moments to bring this part of the DC Universe back to life. If they can keep this up I'm on-board!

I was hesitant when I started reading this new take on Archie but I've happily been proven wrong as it perfectly walks that fine line between revamping the Archie universe and still remaining very respectful to the core of these characters. Mark Waid has always been very good at giving any characters he's worked on their own personality and so far they have been very lucky with artists that fit more

Again, this book is certainly a lot of fun, with a whole smorgasbord of different characters coming together. The artwork is definitely the triumph of this series, I love the painted feel to it and the colouring is great too.

We have been dealing with the fact that many people do agree with Sam as the new Captain America for a while now and it continues in this issue as Sam reflects on the loss of Rhodey and the parallels between his new position and Rhodey as Ironman.

Surprise hit of the year. This issue packs a mean punch just like the first one. As the plot builds Im anxious to see what course Nighthawk takes. 2 vigilantes .. Same city.. Something gotta give. The racial overtones may not sit well with some readers but the realness of the comic do far is socially relevant. Im not scared to say that it is more culturally relevant than Black Panther. So far aft more
