Wolverine 70 is gloriously bloody and action-packed, yet it’s all driven by Logan’s love for his family, something Logan doesn’t have in our universe. McNiven knocks it out of the park once again with the art.

It’s official: Batman: White Knight is up there with Hush, Long Halloween, Dark Knight Returns, Year One, Killing Joke, and Arkham Asylum as one of the all time greatest Batman stories. No seriously, I consider it that good. Sean Murphy outdoes himself with the art and story and each character has so much depth in only 7 issues

Batman: White Knight, if it keeps its current quality of storytelling, will most definitely make history and become one of the most important modern Batman stories. It's mesmerising, and what makes me even happier with this particular issue, is how much depth and development both Harleys get. They're supporting characters, giving Batman and Jack proper background, but their writing hasn't been nea more

The best thing about this series is that you can’t help but root for Jack Napier even though he bound to fall and go back to his joking ways. I’m not liking this Neo-Joker character until we get more backstory on her, though. Murphy does a tremendous job with the art

Tragedy strikes, and the Bat-family face the fight of their lives against an army of super-villains and waning public support.

Murphy does a perfect job as Writer & Artist. And I love how he criticizes the DC New Harley Quinn.

Thanos Imperative 6 is an epic conclusion to the series as Thanos prevails in killing the entire Cancerverse Universe. This series had everything you’d ever need from a Dan Abnett epic: huge stakes, tins of characters, and many casualties (Drax, Nova, Star Lord, Thanos). Amazing job by Miguel Sepulveda as well

This issue was perfect all the way until the last page, when Thanos pledges his allegiance to Lord Mar-Vel in exchange that he kill him.

The way Abnett weaves together his dual narratives is pure genius and it’s safe to say Thanos Imperative is Marvel’s next great space opera.

Miguel Sepulveda may be the best artist Marvel’s cosmic line has seen since Ron Lim. Abnett packs so much into this opening issue and I was entertained from cover to finish.
