Now we know why Stryfes here but this was the weakest issue thus far. Too much time jumping confuses things and this issue is a lot of writing without telling us much more than we know. Lies to build an army to go destroy Kid Cable to ensure the world is ripped a part at the seams. Ed needs to reel this back in and let the Xforce deal some justice with destruction. Hoping next issue gets back more

We know what’s coming this summer and getting to revisit the town Csrnsge built is fun. Just setting up ABsolute Carnage and ripping spines will be a thing soon enough. This story is lining up for a summer blockbuster where no one is safe just as we’ve been told.

Setting up a big showdown but this was my least favorite issue in the series so far. Rockets wish is the best and one only he’s capable of but the rest of the issue is scattered and trying to rush to the final showdown. Overall no road home is great but this issue didn’t really build on the story and was more or less a recap of the first 8 issues.

This issue has a lot to take in. Becoming your enemy has a whole new meaning but it’s always interesting to see Batman look a little more inside the Jokers mind. This has been a fantastic story and the worst part is we only have 2 issues left. This would make for a great regular series.

This story is going to be great. The black suit has created the best storylines in the webslingers history and it’s refreshing to see the world of the secret wars again. The look into Mysterios psyche is great andsm while this may not be everyone’s cup of tea if you are a fan of Spider-Man
And the world of Symbiote stuff you need to read this series.

I’m now sold on the fact that Al Ewing is writing a book that in 50 years will still be referenced as the bar for the Green Man Monster. Or Gray in some cases... Very few times in history has someone wrote a story and allowed an artist to read their mind like the combo of Ewing and Bennett.

This is going to be a fun event. Needless to say there will be some major character development by the end of this thing but it’s split into so many titles I hope it doesn’t run aground by making the series too convulted to keep up with. The start is in line to be great.

This book shows once again why Frank can never care about anyone but between the masterfully drawn fire fights is a grim reminder of who the Punisher really is. I don’t know how many people Castle has killed over the years but this series keeps adding to the body count. And there hasn’t been a Punisher story drawn and told quite like this, ever. The art work explodes off every page and melds more

This story has been close to perfect from the beginning. Diving into different characters minds over each issue is always a great way to remember this story encompasses every character in it. No Way Home is by and large a great story that will spring to life some interesting directions in the next few years.

It is a nostalgia trip to say the least but I’m kinda on board that Rob seems to be telling the story as if he is still in 1990. It was after all a character that was supposed to be fit in to the X universe back then but when all the artist of that day shook up the industry you can kinda see why it was never released. The fact it brought back so many memories I’m glad it came to life.

This issue asks the question who is Dylan’s father? I loved Cassara’s artwork and it was close enough to Stegmans master pieces.

This issue was another deep dive into the man Eddie wants to be and why he maybe never lived up to it before.

While I don’t usually like political laced messages messing up a story Al makes it work here. The Devil Hulk is convinced he has a moral obligation to save us from ourselves and it works here. This is the best Hulk series ever written and I can’t imagine another version of Hulk ever being as interesting. The monster and the man, that makes us all realize we all have our own Devil inside.

Great issue. It’s a cool Elseworld story, which takes place in the canon timeline, at the same time giving us some background for the Grim Knight. It’s interesting how crazy (or crazier) Batman can be under the right circumstances. Which proves he can be even worse than his villains, when he’s just pushed over the edge.
