Stokable reviewed Wonder Woman #29 Sep 5, 2017
2.5

This whole arc feels like I'm reading Wonder Woman extra lite. The story feels like it has absolutely no impact on Wonder Woman as a character, and the writing feels like that of a fifth grade fan fiction project. While there are a few cool moments of art in this, Heart of the Amazon is a low point in what has otherwise been a fantastic book.

"HEART OF THE AMAZON" part four! No single bounty hunter would be enough to draw blood from Wonder Woman-which is why the cabal that's so desperate to get their hands on Amazon DNA has sent five!

Stokable reviewed Ghost Rider #1 Dec 8, 2016
1.0

I wanted so badly to like this title. From the childish, loopy writing that never takes the story anywhere, to the poor art everywhere outside of the 2 pages in which Ghost Rider gets a chance to be the hero in his own comic, this may be one of the worst comics I've read. I long for a resurgence in Ghost Rider, no matter which version, but this creative team is not the one to deliver it.

Really fun concept that was, for the most part, decently pulled off. I was slightly annoyed at how Spider-Mole was suddenly able to see at the end of his bit. Mostly, I did not see a reason to include Natasha Allegri's story in it at all. The story and art were a mess, but mostly, why include a She-Hulk story in an Avengers book? Did they ask her to come up with something and she completely missed more

I love this team and for the most part this series, but this arc has kind of seemed lazy. Sure, the story is entertaining, but there was no depth to it. There were numerous artistic inconsistencies throughout this arc as well, making me feel like the editors were also pretty blase about this story. I'm hoping it'll pick up from here.

It's always great to take a step back and do a character study of the titular hero. Just as it is intriguing to watch Matt Murdock in the courtroom, it's fascinating to see Tony the business mogul in his environment. Lots of character development for Stark's character and his mentality during the Civil War II event. Great pacing in the book, and more introduction and characterization of our future more
