This series gets better and better with each issue. Love the introduction of Tony. Love love love Harley working with Lizzie. I found all of the interactions incredibly compelling. Fantastic series.

ENTER IRON MAN!
Captain Carter has plenty on her hands already, wrestling with a betrayal from the very organization she thought she could trust. Is Tony Stark here to help? Or will he be just another complication at a time when Peggy's life is full of them?

I really enjoyed this. It felt like it connected the world of 1940's Cap with present day and then challenged the entire system of beliefs that he stood for. It was a robust length that I was really happy for because it allowed the story to roll out at a leisurely pace. Looking forward to more!

"The shield isn't what you think. It's not your symbol. It's theirs."
The shield is one of the most iconic images in the world. It stands for hope, justice and the protection of the innocent. It also holds a secret, undiscovered until now, that will change the way Steve Rogers views the 20th century...and how he chooses to fight in the 21st.

This was very entertaining with just a hint of unhinged weirdness that added to the experience quite nicely

I enjoyed this one quite a lot too. It's cool to see Peggy adjusting to the modern times and realizing that the government isn't all that it claims to be.

9.0

This was exciting and fun, even just on its own, without reading the preceding or subsequent issues. The only minor eye-rolly part couldn't be helped at the time. Carnage's sass is very very 90's (...NOT!!) which is funny in a way but kind of subverts the terror he would normally invoke

Amazing Spider-Man #362

By: David Michelinie, Mark Bagley

Needing all the help he can get to take out Carnage, Spider-Man recruits good friend Johnny Storm. But will Venom be a willing ally too? Spidey and the Human Torch go the deserted island where Venom lies in wait. Will Eddie Brock be the key to eliminating Carnage?

Good start to a story. I was dipping in without knowing much of the backstory and I didn't feel lost at any point. Compelling characters and exciting action that wasn't a bunch of the same thing over and over.
