KILLER INSTINCT CONCLUDES!
Project Armageddon wanted a Super-Soldier they could control... A weapon they could point... A trigger they could pull... Instead they got PURE CHAOS. Neena Thurman's past collides with the present and nothing will be the same again. Don't miss the stunning conclusion of KILLER INSTINCT!

This is my favourite issue yet, the art and writing are just so fun and wonderful. The aliens are so charming and likable, Scott and Nadia trying to navigate this world is so crazy and fun and overall this book is just so weird and enjoyable all around. I can't recommend this series enough if you just want a nice fun book to read.

Really good first issue for this mini series by Mark Waid and Javier Garron, I love the interactions between Scott and Nadia, just really fun and the setting of the Microverse just oozes with potential.

The art in this issue is just so good, that coupled with the quality writing from Aaron make this a real good read. This issue mostly takes place in Hel and sets up a fair amount for the future of this series which I'm very excited for, love the Thor/Loki interactions in this issue and the interactions between Thor and everyone really. Solid second issue for this series.

Promising start for Coates run on Cap, the plotlines and characters he sets up in this first issue have a lot of potential for exciting stories going forward and I'm really liking what he's doing with Cap and how the rest of the Marvel Universe interact with him after Secret Empire from the civilians to the military. The art is really good, fits the issue and Cap perfectly, can't wait to see where more

Spider-Man simplified down to the basics, loved every page, the humour might not be for everyone but I legitimately laughed out loud once or twice in this book which doesn't usually happen for me and I love the characters and character dynamics setup in this first issue. Overall a very promising start for Spencer and Ottleys run on Amazing Spider-Man.
