It was a great idea to flip Marshall place in the friendship, now being the one that needs help and support. The new villain Accel looks cool, would have liked to see his power set used to something specific tho. This Rogues arc is very exciting, and that ending oh man, Radiant Black goes to Radiant Dark ahah

As the saying goes, when it rains supervillains, it pours supervillains. But even as ACCEL hunts Radiant Black for the ultimate recharge, Marshall's got bigger things to worry about - like repairing his reputation. And the old friend who just showed up in town. And... who's got his dog? RADIANT BLACK YEAR TWO begins here!

Oof, this is cool! Loved the jewelry "prison" and all the twists and turns on the Bell family. I also like the drama of the estranged father-son relationship, it makes sense. Abel's art continous to be flawless, with Ryan Parrot they're a powerhouse team. Can't wait for issue #4!

This is shaping up really well, we got cool visuals, complex backstories with real trauma and some superheroing in between. I mean it's an original concept that feels really great to read, The Massive-verse is getting even better. This is definitely going on my pull list.

I really enjoyed how they managed to link Thor's continuity, it worked for me, it's not perfect as the other big arcs, but I am still interested in Cates' vision for Thor. Mjonir's speech is brutal! Loved it frankly. Prophecies are always fun for me. Nic Klein is a master at his craft and he's the best fit for Thor since Ribic, however, the Lightning look is not of my taste.

Strong issue! Psychologically I think it was very cool, the characters are where I imagine they would be in a situation like this. I liked the future set ups, I liked the continuation of Mjolnir's rampage, and I am quite intrigued. I'm a bit mixed on the visual design of the God of Hammers. Lightning is cool, lightning creatures are not as much.

Great set-up for this arc. I found it very on point, the Odin-Thor relationship was very well done, the mistery around everything that is happening in the Realms is really brutal. Nic Klein is still on his peak performance and Cates is back on main plot, and all that is why I am here!

It was a nice story arc. The premise was simple, it was mad, it was fun. It delivered on that front. Story development wise it landed a bit short, I needed more.

We're midway in the story, and frankly the mistery is holding pretty well, but I was hoping for a Green Man reveal of some sort. The art continues to be spotless.

This was just perfect. The Robin story I never knew I wanted. Lemire just washed me away with Teen Titans first adventure, and then just smashed my brain with Batman's overpowering lack of regard for child innocence. It's just brutal but realistic in a way.
