Great work by Ahmed. Nicely paced storytelling that took its time and made the payoff much better at the end. Ward's art couldn't have been better here. He's the perfect fit for this trippy cosmic book.

Saladin Ahmed wrote one of the best comic book arcs of 2017 and the conclusion in issue six was perfect. It hits you right in the heart while telling a very compelling story. Honestly, I'm surprised that this was only the sixth issue. So much happened, but the stories never felt rushed or cluttered.

Gerry Duggan has been creating these singular one-shot stories within his run on All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, and for the most part they've worked well to flesh out the story. Issue #11 is a great example of this, as it sheds some background on the Raptors that attacked the Guardians during issue #8. Plus it's great to see Nova used in a Guardians book again. Hopefully this hints at Duggan inv more

Duggan continues his story and fills in all the pieces and solves the mystery bit by bit. Nicely done! The art was good and fits this story well. People complaining about the missing cosmic side, Abnett and Lanning's threads not being part of the Guardians Legacy should be reading this book. It's all there.

Bendis can write an issue that doesn't include the main characters and still have you in suspense wanting to find out what comes next. That's a good read (while ignoring some things) and bad at the same time because It's a five issue mini series about the Spider-Men and we don't have that yet. But i'll hold final judgement until the next issue to see where we're going. Pichelli and Ponsor are fant more

The threads from the last issue are slowly moved but the bulk of the story is Quake's quest to find Deadpool. The cover is misleading but what's new. It's well illustrated by Ramirez who's very different from Javier Garron but fits nicely and made me smile a few times with how he put the pieces and characters together. Nice book that needs more readers.

I am very torn on this issue of the Generations titles. While I loved the setting and the moment that Miles has been thrown into, I am not sure I liked the way it ended. Miles is thrown into the time when Peter lost to Doctor Octopus nearly dying while Aunt May was sick. It is an important time in the history of Spider-Man and a good time to insert Miles. He learns that while there are bad moments more

The idea is great. The art is wonderful and fits very well. The execution has a few hiccups. Fun read but if you throw some logic in there, this whole thing comes apart real fast. But it's comics, so fun wins every time.

The writing and the art was good. Really liked the returns of the characters, especially loved the final page. My problem with this was the, obviously, the price, which is definitely too big for something that more resembles of a preview magazine of the stories to come, than a proper oneshot. Though still, it made me quite hopeful for Marvel's future and I hope it will not disappoint me.
