Prelude:
Cates' Tie-in to his own main series, hopefully he can land the tone I've been craving from these tie-in books.

The Good:
About time that one of these tie-ins landed and especially with Cates on writing. Maybe it's the closer to the main story aspect combined with the art and colours but it's finally part of Absolute Carnage I can get behind that isn't the core story. more

Prelude:
The conclusion to Aaron's run on Thor before he finishes on King Thor, does this finale stand up to the hype?

The Good:
Whilst I've been on the fence with Michael Del Mundo's art, he shows his work off well here. Some parts were questionable but only minor offences.

Aaron sets up the new status quo here for Thor, Valkyire, Loki, King Thor and more. A stunni more

Prelude:
Spider-Man: Life Story reaches the '10s. Can Zdarsky land this story?

The Good:
This issue works so well, wrapping up the story, villains and Peter's arc all within the context of the 10s.

As always it has a spin on the troubles of the time but the appearances from this decade really put a smile on my face.

The Good:
Even though I'm not knowledgeable in Marvel History, I found the story interesting throughout, especially Ewing's. It was for that story that most of my praise comes from.

Though that's not to say that the rest were bad, mostly mediocre but there were some really great issues.
