First off, I would just like to appreciate everything that is Fat Cobra. He literally ate the Void. Yeah, the same Void that killed Sentry and Loki a couple years ago. Anyways, I though issue 1 was super generic so I was pleasantly surprised with this issue. Each character gets a decent amount of time to shine and the humor was much more improved. Jim Zub comics aren’t for everyone but I love th more

Well let’s start with the good stuff. I really enjoyed issue 1 so I was naturally excited for this issue and was massively let down. The art was great and I’m still intrigued on the identity of Cadaverous. The dialogue was also pretty natural and fluid. Unfortunately, the story itself was super cliched and boring. After I read this issue, I wondered, “What’s the point of this series?” Th more

Don’t let Contagion’s publication date mistake you: Contagion is a good old fashioned comic. The plot is simple: an alien infection is spreading and New York needs heroes. Brisson gloriously introduces more characters from Marvel’s vast catalogue with ease, as Tony Stark searches for a scientific solution while Danny’s sorcerer friends search for a magical solution. Oh, and Elektra, Venom, more

X-Men 1 is absolutely flawless. Hickman perfectly blends the character writing from his Fantastic Four run and the mind blowing plot of his Avengers run, and what you get is quite possibles the beginning of Jonathan Hickman’s greatest comic yet. Hickman writes every character perfectly, especially Scott. The conversations between Scott and Lorna and between Scott and Corsair were just terrific, more

Besides a few minor parts, Doctor Doom 1 was fantastically written from almost start to finish. Larroca’s art was by far the best part of this issue by the way.

I’m really really bummed that Deodato didn’t draw this issue because I know for a fact he would have rocked it, but Jacinto gives us decent artwork. I feel like Savage Avengers 6 could have been something great but thanks to a mixture of lousy writing from Duggan and Deodato’s absence, I finished the comic feeling slightly underwhelmed. Make no mistake though, Savage Avengers is still Marvel more

Part of me wants to give Champions 10 a lower score because of how rushed it felt, but I can’t possibly do that because Jim Zub was forced to rush this series to a close and I can guarantee you Zub had a better ending in mind. I’m disappointed at this series’ premature cancellation but it was great while it lasted and I’m excited for what the Champions will be up too in 2020

While I’m disappointed that Contagion 1 didn’t incorporated more characters than it did, but the crisp art and Brisson’s passion for writing horror prove this to be a simple but entertaining comic.

Strikeforce 1 was by far one of the better comics I read this week. First off, Tini Howard handles both the Avengers and the newly formed Strikeforce perfectly.

Avengers 24 had way too much talking by Cosmic Ghost Rider for my liking in what turned out to be a very uneven issue.
