This was better than the last two (not that that's hard to achieve since those were full of cringe), I really liked Joe's character. Still, I have two big problems with this book. One, the backup stories are always bad and the art is pretty weak, I feel like it's doing a disservice to the main story. If you're going to want to push these characters put in some effort, not just this low-hanging fru more

Yeah, they made a point out of these being all 4 Caps, that gorgeous Alex Ross cover sure baited a lot of people only for Cantwell to include just Sam and Steve. I doubt the last two issues will make up for it regarding Bucky and Walker, especially because they have to introduce the last two new characters AND resolve the main plot.

Obi-wan the 3rd - Aug 30, 2021

Ya the Alex Ross cover is what sold me, and I was hopping he'd do all 5 issues too.

But instead, they find the Captains, everyday people from all walks of life who've taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities. ...

Only reason I am giving this a 9.5 is cause I am sad I have to wait till 2022 to get more Barbaric content. This series is amazing and I am sad to wait. The ending was perfect, the writing was perfect, the art was perfect. I can not wait to see what happens next!

Everything's gone to sh*t. But what else is new for a barbarian cursed to do good, who has to follow the commands of a bloodthirsty axe? It's just that today's a little worse. With Owen's back against the wall, and his enemies eager to chop him to bits, things are looking especially grim as the first arc of BARBARIC comes to a close.

Not going to lie, I was thinking of dropping this from my pull list. But after reading it I'm pleasantly surprised. It was a first good issue, and the twist at the end was okay. Didn't really surprise me but wasn't bad. I like the direction this book is going in so lets see if it gets better. The art is okay, could be a bit better but the writing is really good.

The conclusion to Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow, was good. Just good. It was short and to the point, I was expecting more action and stakes. It was surprising at times, and the writing wasn't bad. But it seemed very easy for Peter to win. If they took out the epilogue and just gave a few more pages to the story, I feel like that would of helped. But that is just my opinion.

Issue 5 of Geiger was pretty good. A nice change of pace from the previous issue. The panels were amazing for this issue, and the art is always nice.

I only picked this book up because of Tom Taylor, and his part of the book was the only good one. And even his part was kind of lack luster. With deadpool telling the reader that this book isn't for kids, which was the only funny part to me, the rest of Taylor's arch was kind of boring. The other arch's I did not care about. This book is meant to be gory, violent and action packed. It did not show more
