A nice finale, some of the dialogue seemed a little "eh" though. Art is great and I didn't realize until later but one key frame appears to be a homage to the original AOA storyline. :)

What a fun issue! Unlike #1, I was prepared for the humor and the somewhat campy feel this time around, which made this second issue much more enjoyable. The dialogue shines! Even the lowliest of henchmen have character.

Hopefully Slott keeps up this type of writing for the post Secret Wars ASM, and I wish Kubert was drawing it.

Doctor Strange (2015) #1

Oct 7, 2015

This book was in my "B"(i.e. might get) list of new Marvel titles to collect, and I'm really happy I picked it up. Aaron's writing is on point as usual and the art is fantastic with a story matching surreal quality to it. The atmosphere reminds me of the new Constantine: The Hellblazer series, but better executed. Great first issue.

I don't know what had my attention more in this issue: the art or the writing. Both were excellent and work so well together. I like where this story is (probably) going.

Old Man Logan #4

Sep 1, 2015

Once again this book peaks my interest with its art but is somewhat of a let down with its story. It could have been better overall if it began by focusing more on only a few locations than consistently having the Old Man bounce around and meet and leave familiar characters in what seems like the blink of an eye. I'm looking forward to the ongoing series this fall.

Southern Bastards #10

Jul 30, 2015

The "weakest" story of the series so far: shock without substance. It just seemed too generic and hollow for what Aaron is capable of, and what we've seen so far. Then again, maybe the point of this issue was to show us just how empty and lost Esaw is, and that he's just a bad guy without any twist or understanding behind it. It was entertaining none-the-less.

The execution of this issue definitely had a classic Star Wars feel to it and that's what made me love it. I agree with some reviews where they state inconsistencies in how Luke's face is drawn, and that some of these story elements could/should have been introduced earlier.
