This was a fun story. I’d rate it a 5.5 or 6 but I gave it a few extra points to even out what I assume is a fake review from blob, considering he rated the issue before it was even out.

Darkhold: Iron Man #1

By: Ryan North, Guillermo Sanna
Released: Oct 13, 2021

Ryan North turns his talents to a brand-new genre! Called forth to face the dread god Chthon, Iron Man reads from the ancient ill-fated text the Darkhold... and it changes the course of his entire life. The armor that has saved him countless times is about to become a prison - one whose only escape is a fate worse than death. The brilliant comedic ...

Gizmo reviewed Transformers: King Grimlock #2 Sep 5, 2021
3.0

There's really no relatable character here, not even Grimlock. On top of that, the artwork does not communicate clearly, so whatever action might have breathed life into the scene is lost.

Transformers: King Grimlock #2

By: Steve Orlando, Agustin Padilla
Released: Sep 1, 2021

King Grimlock rampages on! As Grimlock sets off to find his place in this strange new world of men, beasts, and magic, he finds himself in the maw of a beast big enough to swallow a Dinobot! It's a fight of incredible strength between the Cybertronian T-Rex and the monster--and someone is taking lessons from Grimlock that may spell his doom!

6.5

This was a fun but ultimately superficial issue. I agree with Gizmo’s review, the art made it really difficult to follow what was going on at times.

Mighty Morphin Comic Rater reviewed Alien #6 Sep 27, 2021
8.0

Aside from the criticisms about the art, I feel like a lot of the reviews for the issues in this series’s first arc were overly harsh. I found the first issues to be true to the tone of the first two films, while the last issues really shined as the series took on a voice of its own, culminating with the multiple unexpected surprises in this issue. Gabriel’s redemption was heart breaking to an more

Overly ambitious to the point where the entire sinister six storyline was too crowded, too convoluted, and too confusing. I’m ready for the Spencer run to end.

I’m glad we’ll see more of her in the upcoming Crimson Reign series, I hope Soule does as fantastic a job with that as he has done with War of the Bounty Hunters up to this point.

Yes, I am also really looking forward to the Crimson Reign series! I am hoping we see Qi’ra and Crimson Dawn in the upcoming Book of Boba Fett too!

“Maybe they’re your Uncles, you’re Aunties” was a killer line!

This is my impression of how Marvel typically goes about handling its “event” series: 1) Put out a lot of advertising 2) Put out an outstanding first issue 3) Once you’ve gotten people hooked, just piddle out garbage for the next 3-4 issues and collect a paycheck.

Luckily this has not been the case more

This is the issue that got me back into comics after a long hiatus. Being the standoffish maverick of the group was cool when there was only one in the group (i.e. Raphael in TMNT or Wolverine in the 90s X-Men), but when everyone decides they’re too cool to follow the rules they just become another jerk in a world already too full of them. This was the trend I saw in comic books and when Scott S more

Overall great story but the misattribution of the “house divided” quote was distracting. “A house divided against itself cannot stand” is an Abraham Lincoln quote the same way “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” is a Michael Scott quote, i.e. yes they said this but they were quoting another source, in Lincoln’s case that source being Jesus Christ.
