A good idea for the annual to dedicate an entire issue to Kate's landing in LA. We got a pretty good look into how she thinks and fights. Not sure why Madame Masque doesn't just end Kate when she's given the opportunity. Overall, a pretty good futzin' issue.

I know some die-hard Spidey fans are absolutely sick of Slott's new direction, but I'm all in. As another user-reviewer said, this Spider-Man is darker. I love the dark Spidey and his straight-forward method to bringing criminals to justice. No rules dictates this hero. In this issue, he vows to kill the Spider-slayer rather than saving the innocents. The writing and art were once again solid, but more

Another great issue from Snyder and Capullo. The argument between young Bruce and Alfred was tense and written pretty well, in my opinion. The Red Hood gang is indeed odd but sure mean business as we see by the end of the issue.

This continues to be a very solid series in my pull list. I am slowly getting more and more attached to the young X-men as they live in the future. This issue nor series is perfect, but consistently good nonetheless.

I usually avoid mini-series but I had the opportunity to read #1 for free and I loved it. So I bought #2 and will buy #3. This issue was very well done. I love the black and white art, which gives the story a "grounded" feel (if that makes sense). The human element of conflict and debate for the means of survival was well-written and believable. I am excited to finally see Golem in #3.

This series is truly underrated, in my opinion. Maybe it's just because I am a Cap fan, but I love the grit of this series and especially this issue. Remender's version of Cap is an instant favorite of mine. In this issue, he brings Cap down to his lowest point physically and then to an even lower point emotionally. Cap is known for fighting tooth and nail to the very end and this issue captures t more

Was slightly nervous that the hype around this book was too large to live up to, but after reading Superman Unchained #1, I am nervous no more. This will be a great issue for months as long as Snyder and Lee stay put. I loved being inside Superman's head along the way and I am already hooked on the plot. I can't wait to see Superman shaken to the core as Snyder's Batman was in his fantastic joker more

I'm surprised the critics like this issue so much (so far), because I didn't enjoy it all that much. The art isn't my style, though it's not bad, and I miss the art from the previous arc. I also wanted to see more of the arc on savage land with Shana, but I guess that's over. I'm glad to see people like it, but again, not really for me.

Another good issue with plenty of shock and suspense. Hopeless continues to do a good job at giving the characters their fair share of dialogue, which can be hard given such a big "cast." I don't read this title for the fantastic dialogue, just to be fairly entertained by each issue. So far, AA has done this and will keep reading until the fun stops.

Godbomb is shaping up to be the best story arc of this title, which is saying a lot. I've yet to be disappointed by one issue thus far and #8 didn't let me down. We get a sense at how massive this bomb is and the absence of Gorr (for the most part) actually makes him seem more powerful as well. It seems appropriate that it will take three Thors to take down a villain as powerful as Gorr. This titl more

It's tough to fill the shoes of your own great story arc, but Snyder kept me entertained for this short two-issue arc before Zero Year. Not great, but not by any means terrible. The art was great as always and I'm ready for Snyder to reach his potential again with Zero Year.

Clearly different than what we were used to in the early issues (partly because of the artist change), but that's not a bad thing at all. Francavilla fills in well for the darker mood of this issue. Although the plot did not advance much further (it ends the same as #9), we are starting to see the formation of a much darker arc for this title. And I, for one, am excited. Still easily my favorite t more

Although this particular issue did not have as much action in store as other issues, it succeeded in setting up what I believe will be an epic story arc. I've thoroughly enjoyed this title and have become a huge Thor fan throughout. Gorr is a worthy villain and I hope to see the darkest of him by the end of the arc. With two Thors for the price of one and a villain I love to hate, this issue has g more

This is definitely my favorite UA issue so far. Arrogance has often been a flaw for Thor and it shows once again early in this issue. From this, Remender does a great job building up to the final battle where Thor strikes down Apocalypse with a seldom-used axe, Jarnbjorn. Even with the villain vanquished, the issue leaves readers with a foreshadow of doom in the near, or not-so near, future.
