Caped-Comic-Reviews reviewed Ice Man #1 Sep 17, 2018
4.0

Why is Ice Man back for another series? Who knows? Does anyone care that it’s back...probably not.
This comic was plain and simple not worth $3.99.
The artist does a really good job, but Sina Grace needs to learn how to write dialogue effectively, the actual plot was decent at least.
If you really enjoyed the first iceman series then this is just more of the same so you’ll prob more

Ice Man #1

By: Sina Grace, Nathan Stockman
Released: Sep 12, 2018

He's back!
Iceman is back! Which is good, because someone is hunting the Morlocks for sport. Now it's up to Bobby Drake to prevent another potential Mutant Massacre. But who's behind this horrific hunt? You won't believe it if we tell you! Guest-starring Bishop!

The artwork was very good and probably the best part of the comic.
I’m not enjoying this current storyline all that much and miss the involvement of wally West into the flash series.
This story will all the different forces seems like it could be a long one, but it just seems kind of dumb.

Flash #53

By: Joshua Williamson, Christian Duce
Released: Aug 22, 2018

It's a slippery slope for the Scarlet Speedster when he must team up with the frosty Commander Cold to stop a powered-up Trickster from trashing Central City. The Trickster's first target is the maximum-security prison Iron Heights, which could mean a criminal breakout the city would never survive.

I liked the conclusion the first storyline, but it wasn’t my favourite issue of the series. This does set up some things for future stories at least. The artwork was very good but not as good as the previous artist.

Justice League #7

I didn’t enjoy the first 2 issues of this series as they were just average and then issues 3-5 were really solid so it’s a bit of letdown that this final showdown felt a bit rushed. The artwork was really good as always

Avengers #6

By: Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness
Released: Aug 22, 2018

THE FINAL HOST concludes!
The final battle against the Dark Celestials. A battle unlike any the Avengers have ever experienced. A battle a million years in the making. The new team of heavy hitters assembles at last. But will the young, inexperienced Ghost Rider prove to be the most important and powerful member of all?

Solid origin story that was probably unnecessary and feels more like a filler issue more than anything.
The art is good but not Pichelli’s best work by far.

I liked the use of the terminals in this comic, it’s interesting how they can change their appearance and makes them a fun villain.
The art style won’t be everyone’s taste but I enjoyed it.
The story seems like it could go somewhere interesting, but I’m ready to move from it and get into something new.

I didn’t enjoy how nightwing was represented at times and he’s more

This was okay and the art was solid. Really this story doesn’t feel 100% necessary but it does fit into the plot. I was disappointed that the silencer didn’t feature more in this issue considering it’s only a 2 part crossover. This current storyline has gone on too long and sacrifices certain parts of nightwings character to make work

Maybe I’m alone here, but I took a shot at this after seeing the cover and I was disappointed. The art style inside may not be for most people, I personally thought it was okay and need some work and could use some more depth but was still acceptable especially for an indie comic. The main issue seems to be writing, not a lot happened here and for a $3.99 that’s a problem. It was all build up more
