Enjoyed this issue a lot and loved the dialogue in many instances. Cabal's art is great and fits well with some nice colors by Woodard . Gabby is just too adorable with a new hero codename.

This probably isn't for everyone, but it's totally my thing. I'm really invested in most of these characters. Although, Spider-Man's abject hatred for the more docile symbiote is a little off putting.

Really good issue. Duggin impresses with his ability to drive a story forward and still offer really good character work that doesn't seem shoe-horned in. This should be one of the bigger books on the stand, but instead it's lower tier, which is a bit of a bummer.

I like that Cap goes back to a simpler, old school formula. That makes him relatable again and the art just works SO much with the story Waid tells us. Smaller town, smaller threat, smaller enemy, but bigger payoff and bigger fun. This is pretty much what this is : Fun.

There is so much going on within this story that it seems the team is really enjoying themselves on this title. There are call backs to previous stories from other titles that were a joy to see. Things like Skurge's enchanted machine guns and the end reveal when Stephen seeks out a weapon against a god.

The adventurer style stories that are coming from Duggan have been one of the more interesting Guardians runs in a while. It is going to interesting to see where he goes when the series ends at 150 and he goes into a broader focus. In the meantime this is a pretty great read.

Great work by Waid that's elevated by Saiz's art. Seriously this whole crossover should've been illustrated by Saiz or at least artists of his caliber. It would have felt more coherent. But as a standalone issue, it's the best one so far.

This book doesn't disappoint. I wish it had more room to breath and stories to be told at the pace Duggan had in mind but even in his last few issues heading toward Infinity Countdown, the story doesn't suffer especially when Marcus To is helming the art duties for a while now giving it a beautiful vision. Old characters popping up helps as well!

Finally an issue that actually works and mainly because of Del Mundo's art. He just slayed it. I mean Soule's narrative is intriguing from Charles Xavier's point of view but it's still seems disconnected somehow. Maybe that says something about this particular Professor X but i'm just glad that the art elevated the script.
