THE GOOD:

-Sara Pichelli's art was quite good. She captures the character and tone of the issue really well.

-I like just how fun this series is. It's a bit like the modern MCU movies (Minus Infinity War), it's just a fun adventure.

-I think that Slott captures the characters of Reed and S more

Death Of The Inhumans #3

Once, Black Bolt's voice could shatter planets. Now, it cannot even break down the walls that hold him. The Midnight King is naught but a wounded prisoner - and his family but lambs to the slaughter. They will plea for help from a distant ally. It will not save them.

Oh dear... suddenly I am not liking the direction of this story. It went full gimmick and the excuse for it is a little goofy. The one-shots should be fun, but I now fear for the main event.

Everything has gone from bad to worse, for the characters but especially for the narrative which is a mess. Gamora doesn't have a solid motivation for why she is doing any of this. characters stand around and do nothing except quip plot. Characters are dead now for some reason (hello? moondragon is alive, Duggan. even Bendis knew that) Deodato's messy paneling doesn't help the already messy plot. more

Herushalaim - Sep 16, 2018

Gamora merged the souls of her universe to stave off Devondra, a soul eating entity that's been wreaking havoc across the multiverse. It's the monster inside the soul gem. She does this as a way to get the heroes fighting against her out of the way and to keep Devondra at bay long enough to figure out how to stop it. As for Moondragon, she was dead until Bendis brought her back, which is the only reason he'd know that she was alive. That doesn't make Duggan's continuity flub any better though.

Infinity Wars #3 focuses almost entirely on two characters--Gamora and Loki (currently the most overused villain in the Marvel Universe). This issue lacks the drama of the issues preceding it. Gerry Duggan's scripting is readable and witty (as usual), but the story's pace slows to a crawl. The primary purpose seems to be setting-up spinoffs--which makes one wonder whether the primary purpose of t more

If you loved classics like Axis and Fear Itself this is right up your alley. Oh, you didn’t. But maybe you loved the Hydra Cap story. Oh you didn’t.
Well, Marvel goes for it again with Gamora creating an alternative universe where several heroes are merged and you end up with such interesting concepts as Soldier Supreme and Weapon Hex. This is not that bad a concept, but it happens for ab more

In my opinion, the writing in this issue is not deserving of the art. I quite liked the art, but the writing is just painful. It contains zero emotion which just might be a good thing to have in an issue where Storms freaking second mother dies. I think her characterization is good, which is a good thing considering there are probably only two other characters in this series have the honor of even more

Twenty pages where nothing happens. The first half of this book is wasted on Gentle, an obscure character that nobody cares about. The second half is spent preparing for an unnecessarily elaborate heist which is then mostly skipped over. The closest thing to action in this book is when Nightcrawler teleports the team onto the transport plane, once again ignoring 40+ year old rules about how Nightc more

Plenty of people care about Gentle, and were ecstatic to see him on the book. So speak for yourself. And exactly what rule about Kurt's powers was broken? This is nothing we haven't seen him do before. And you think that just because Xavier is dead Cassandra will just stop and go on her merry way?

X Men Red has never risen above mediocrity. The whole set up continues to be absurd.
Despite being a Jean Grey vehicle, there is no character work much less development for her beyond the tired set up of her being blamed for a crime she did not committ. There are no stakes, no suspense. Is anyone in doubt that her name will be cleared up?

Any comic that has Batman taking a shit as part of the narrative is a badly written comic.

Not to mention Rogol Zaar is the most boring DONUT STEEL CHARACTER. If I wanted to read about this cosmic warlord that is so threatening to entire civilizations, I'd read Dragon Ball Z, because Frieza does a better job at that than Rogol Zaar.

The first great X Men issue in years. Ed Brisson is a great writer and I expect great things from him.
This recalls the best X Men stories in creating an apocalyptic sense of dread, with not one but two major deaths, and a menace out of Days of Future Past.
That said, I’m wary of the next few issues as this involves a lot of time travelling and young versions from alternate timelines. more
