WOW.

To those that are disappointed that Batman's acting 'out of character,' I'm here to tell you that's what often happens when someone is brutally traumatized, particularly when it happens over and over. Of course Batman isn't himself. That's the point.

This issue felt like an extension of the recent Cable run from these very same writers and so I think people who read that will get more out of this. This doesn't spoil Extermination at all, it just deals with how Cable's death affected his family, which is something I think was necessary. The backup feels out of place, but I guess there was nowhere else to put a story about Cable's earliest memor more

Really great issue. There's a good explanation for Gwenpool's powers and her romance with Quentin. The team dynamics are on-point. They feel like they're a team instead of a bunch of characters that were crammed together onto a team. This issue also picks up some plot points from Hawkeye, which is a bonus for people who read that.

This issue is amazing. It hits hard with grief, ruined father/son relationships, loneliness and slow death! New dog Venom is actually pretty adorable, while also symbolizing the relationship between Eddie and the symbiote extremely well. This is one of my favorite series at the moment, if not my number one favorite. (It's truly a toss up between some amazing titles.)

This series has found its footing, I think. We're finally getting some answers and that's important after just being thrown into something big like this.

Another solid outing from Ewing. This manages to fit right in with Immortal Hulk's tone while still telling a larger story. The use of the original Hulk run's panels is actually an extremely clever narrative device. I enjoyed this very much. Makes me excited for this event that really came out of nowhere. Hopefully, the rest lives up to Al Ewing's Hulk, which is no easy task.
