Okay, Mr. Hill, you have my attention. 

I rarely read Marvel anymore. Too many events, too much hype, too many relaunches, too many cash grabs. Killmonger #1 is easily the best Marvel comic I've read in years. It capitalizes on the strength of the Black Panther film yet feels right at home in the 616 Universe. 

The writing is very strong and grounded. Even as the fantastic more

Everyone has seen or is familiar with the movie Black Panther and the villain of the story, Killmonger. However, what we don't know, is how Erik ( J'Nadaka ), became the assassin that he is. Bryan Hill does a great job making Erik seem real, modern, and understandable to the causes he is after. Bryan shows the reader how Erik went from a young scared boy to a "bloodthirsty revolutionary ". >
The pencil by Juan Ferreyra is deep, dark, and does a great job drawing the line between flashbacks and recent events. The details on each panel are enjoyable and easy to read when jumping from panel to panel.

Overall, this is a great pick up for Black Panther fans or to anyone who enjoys good writing and art. more

Emperor N'Jadaka takes the stage for a villain spotlight issue that faithfully serves the twin masters of world-building and plot development. The issue also paints an elegant portrait (in words and gorgeous guest art) of N'Jadaka and Bast. It's a decisive, revelatory break from this title's status quo and an absolute blast to read.

OML goes on a pre-death quest to ensure the 616 never turns into the Wasteland. He ends up kick-starting the very villainous scheme he's trying to stop; I love the dramatic irony of that. Sharp detective-type dialogue and some clean, stylized art made this a thoroughly enjoyable read for me, particularly after the irony became clear.

Daredevil experiences a giant, all-points win, but the final act (unmasking the Vigil) forces him to realize he's been in a coma dream since #609. And so he dies - for about a half a second. The victory lap and the credo at the end come close to excusing this arc's extremely indulgent plot. This is definitely good. It's even fairly satisfying. But it could have, should have been great, and it isn' more

Ironheart gets an old- and new-reader friendly intro as she foils a terrorist plot by Clash, makes a much-needed friend, and picks up stirrings of the 10 Rings organization.

Wade re-enters Wakanda for the contractually-obligated misunderstanding brawl before he and T'Challa can team up. The script strikes an excellent balance between Deadpool's absurdity and the Panther's pomposity; the combination works where neither could stand on its own. The art is still sketchy, but it's also still packed with vibrant details that disprove any assertion that it lacks effort.

The Mole Man provides a little monster-based antagonism to draw Rachna Koul back into the orbit of the reunited FF. A focus on Johnny Storm works nicely with the end of her story, building parallel themes about how far is too far to go to protect your loved ones. It's got excellent plot and theme work. This ends good, but it could/should have been great.

Rogue and Xandra stop the fight with a risky ruse - not only does Remy suffer through a fatality fakeout, but Rogue's powers get messed up. I appreciate that while these two adverse outcomes aren't (and shouldn't be) precisely balanced, Remy's heartbreak is given plenty of respect. An emotionally powerful script brings this arc in for a very satisfying conclusion.
