My first time reading the Dark Tower comics. I'm obsessed. This is the first arc and it would seem they run sequentially. It would be ill advised to pick up a different run but still manageable.
The lore of the world that King has built is rich and extremely meticulous. A magical alternate reality where King Arthur's descendants are gunslinger knights? Prophecies, witches, demons, magic, roma more

I feel like there could be something really great here if there was more time. Fun concept; it just took too much time to get there. Once we arrived, the comic was finished.

Wow, I will be the voice of reason here. This was awful for so many reasons. Shockingly bad. Where to start? Have any of you that are giving this 10/10 ever read any stories with John Constantine? Because there are key points in this story that he is not John Constantine, but just a projection of Si Spurrier. If John Constantine was kidnapped by a bunch of deadbeats, and one of them accused him of more

It’s new Spider-Man vs. newest Spider-Man!!! The Beyond Corporation paid a lot of money for the Spider-Man trademark and does not take kindly to an unlicensed Spider-Man running around Brooklyn. So it’s up to Ben Reilly to take Miles Morales down.

Christoper Cant(write)well is essentially a hired assassin for Marvel. A hired character assassin. This is a comic that provides a platform to belittle its namesake and to platform the next era of heroes. It’s subversive and mean spirited.

This one started off pretty bad, had a decent middle and then ended pretty corny. I am really over the hell cat parts, the fact that the team Tony brought is just ridiculous and the book just tries too hard in some parts.

Tony and his Space Friends get real close to stopping Korvac in this speedy running battle. It's a nicely-crafted episode in words and art; very entertaining. But it's still not doing enough to bolster my shaken faith in the big-picture plot. I have no idea where this is going, but with every issue, I suspect more strongly that I won't like it.

The first two issues were so great, but the decline has set in big time. We now have a ludicrous story which is more interested in attacking the white male than in the formerly interesting characters. Have we had a single positive white male in this tale? DC just cannot stay away from its divisive political agenda and identity politics. Dropped.

I never have read any prior Death Dealer titles before this. I absolutely love the tone and feel so far. I felt thrust into the dark world that has been created. Reminiscent of a Dark Souls game. Right off the bat in the opening sequence, a macabre horror comes striding out of the woods; melting away any humans it comes into contact with. I have great hopes for the future of this.

If Spider-Man wasn't in this comic, it wouldn't have made a difference. It should have been called "Captain Marvel" because she was the actual hero. Admittedly, with not much dialogue. But still. I don't like the current trope of heroes being upstaged by glorified cameos. And, let's be honest....it always has to be a female.

Not only was this rather boring, but it became readily apparent that the title should have been anything other than "Spider-Man". I'm not sure if one single instance occurred where Peter Parker himself was the victor. He was upstaged by everyone around him, essentially becoming the butt of everyone's joke. Yes, there was teamwork. However, if Peter wasn't in the comic, I am not sure if the outcome more

I am rating this issue as an extension for the rest of Jamie Delano's and Garth Ennis' run. I really do not understand the appeal in the way these men write. Mike Carey really nailed what I think great Hellblazer adventures should look like.

The first 5 issues of Sandman are some of the best comic book reading a person can do. The quality ebbs and flows after #5 though. The horror in the restaurant is something I will legitimately never forget. A film should be made of just that one issue. Unbelievable stuff.

This is easily my favorite Indie book in quite some time. For my money, this is comic book perfection. Felix Delep, is putting on a masterclass in conveying emotion, and story with illustration. The facial work alone is worth the price of admission. Then you read it. Its moving, equally haunting and inspiring.

Book #3 is the weakest issue of the 5 thus far. It is a kind of calm before the storm; no pun intended (there is a snow storm in issue 4). This issue really raises the stakes. A battle of willpower is being waged and if the animals lose, they could lose everything.
