This kinda sucked. Art was awesome but the script by Tom King was dreadful. The only reason I hadn’t scored this lower is because it’s a essentially a what if storyline and everything will be back to the normal by #48, but I’m not even sure this will last in my pull that long. Also Tom King absolutely cannot write Booster Gold, seriously if you’re looking for a good recent booster gold sto more

It was a typical Marvel Annual really with a bunch of inconsequential stories, most of which were boring if I’m brutally honest. I only bought this comic because I enjoyed Donny Cates’ run on Thanos, but this just served as a disappointment, especially since Cates only wrote one short story within the book. As for the art it was mixed,some of the art was really good (Geoff Shaw) some of it rea more

Could have been good, but the art is shit and the dialogue is seriously lacking. The premise was decent and it could have been a really good look at what being a sex worker is really like but it focused too much on the actual sex and the author having a pity party for themselves throughout....yeah don’t buy this unless you like wasting money

A surprisingly honest and touching account of a trans girl surviving through sex work in Seattle. With excerpts published in the Eisner-nominated anthology ISLAND, the full-color volume, drawn and painted by REMY BOYDELL, is an unflinching debut graphic novel. Written by MICHELLE PEREZ.

First off, I loved the matching covers but otherwise the book was a disaster. The catowman story was okay but not exactly worth half an issue, but the other scenes of their past mixed in just felt out of place and made for a nothing story essentially. Jolelle Jones’ artwork was on point as always, but Janin was heavily reliant on 3-D models which just made the poses look awful, he can and has do more
