Picking up right where the last issue left off and never letting up, The Death of Strange #2 continues with great storytelling, superb pacing, and amazing artwork (I will never run out of praise for Lee Garbett). Whenever I’m thoroughly enjoying a comic, I feel like I reach the end and don’t even realize it - while also feeling like I didn’t get enough because of how much I’m loving the st more

If there has ever been a horror comic that has captured the magic of the golden age of horror films of the 1920s - 1940s it’s Night of The Ghoul. Now I know this is a bold statement, but stay with me and at the end of what I have to say please experience this masterclass in suspense, art, and storytelling alternating between the present and World War I.

A great follow up issue by Zeb Wells and Patrick Gleason. When I finished the issue I realized that the entire time I was having so much fun, and this is really what I’ve been missing from Spider-Man. I cared about what was happening to Peter and Ben. The interactions between them feel real, genuine, and important. There is one particular moment between the two that hit me right in the feels and more

I really am sad to say that after 3 years and about 100 issues (with events, tie-ins, etc.), Nick Spencer’s run really went nowhere.

This debut issue gave me the right amount of belly laughs. I was worried it wouldn’t be anywhere near as enjoyable as the show, but I was proven very wrong. It has the ridiculous moments that are so enjoyable as well as heartfelt moments sprinkled in all the craziness. The art is filled with energy and translates the spirit of the show so damn well.
