Caped-Comic-Reviews reviewed What If?: X-Men #1 Oct 15, 2018
5.0

I would love to rate this higher, but the art changes mid way through and it’s a massive quality drop, it looks like something you’d see in a web comic from an inexperienced artist, very disappointing. The story was otherwise very solid, but also very short and didn’t have much of a meaning to it, overall not bad for a one shot. This wasn’t much of a what if kind of story though, just felt more

What a waste of 25 issues. Peter David has clearly lost what it means to write a good comic because this series has been all over the place, with this by far being the worst. Awful art, dumb story and awful ending.

This series does involve a lot more reading than some other comics, but it is a very interesting series that plays into the theme of conspiracy theories and what if they were real. It’s definitely worth picking up if you enjoy that kind of thing and it has a corgi in it too

Beyonders #2

I can feel this book building towards its end and this issue felt like it was just stretching the story to 25 issues if I’m honest. I won’t say this was a bad issue, just a bit of a dull one where the whole plot is basically a chase scene with the two scarlet spiders. This is hardly Peter David’s best work, but it’s still better than some of the stuff Marvel has been putting out lately.

I’m very torn with this comic.
The art work is really really good and I will definitely be picking future work from the artist, but the story is average at best and just screams fill in. Now I know we all know that this is nothing more than a fill in and it seems even the writer feels that and has decided not to give this his full effort but just make it passable. This is a very Average sto more

Awful art.
#10 of Marvel 2-in-1 serves as a good finish to the series (even though there’s still 2 more issues left) and would serve as a good lead into Fantastic Four (if it hadn’t already been released and shown that it ignored all character development from this series), but it was also probably the worst issue of the series. 2-in-1 has been a very solid book from Marvel, at least for more

I think if you’re a massive stranger things you’ll pick this up regardless of quality, but for me this wasn’t very impressive.
The writing of the issue was decent enough, but the narration style used doesn’t really fit in with the theme of the stranger things tv show and so it feels out of place. This is also an issue where not a lot of new things really more

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.
