Wow I was so excited for this comic and... yeah, it's terrible, actually. Joe Casey is desperately trying to write a modern teenager and the result is one of those cringe-inducing affairs where an adult makes it clear that they haven't spoken to a teenager since they were in high school. It reads like he made a list of every slang term employed by anyone under 40 in the last ten years and wanted t more

I despised this series with every fiber of my being and am glad to see it's over. If you wanted gwenpool without any of her charm fans have come to love, this book is for you. A derivative concept that became it's own unique entity driven back to her derivative roots at whiplash speeds, this book is for you.

This is a recap issue summarizing the stories important for the Empyre event from all of Marvel history (Kree/Skrull war, Mar-Vell, Celestial Madonna stuff, Wiccan and Hulkling from Young Avengers etc.) for that it's awesome, don't expect much more though.

But if you aren't particularly interested it's hell of a lot cheaper than getting the relevant trades.

I don't want to give a higher score for a first issue, but this run starts promising... albeit it's funny how some of Aaron's "WILL LAST FOR THE END OF TIME (SIRIUSLY!*)" changes get undone in the span of a single issue (not much of a spoiler, the biggest was literally on the cover).

Schadenfreude isn't a nice thing, but I take what I can get.

One issue from its conclusion, Aaron's Thor run continues to be The Best. Aaron does that thing he loves doing where he introduces a team of one-off characters who have such great designs and gimmicks that they feel like they could headline their own book--it's great as always. And the final page is KILLER, thanks to the pure genius of Esad Ribic. Seriously, the man is an artistic god. Long live G more

Has whimsy and foreshadowing and fun even if the art is wonky at times. It almost washes out the bad taste Aaron's Thor left in my mouth. Almost.
