100th Anniversary: Spider-Man #1

Jun 29, 2023

This is weird... First of all, the story doesn't have any real beginning and you simply don't care about it, because it's some parallel universe you know heck about. And the comic is very short. Basically, the idea of the story is very simple and mediocre on its own, but the art is quite ugly too. Don't get me wrong, In-Hyuk Lee is a great cover artist, but in this full comic his art looks too digital and not serious enough. Some individual pics were spectacular, but it just doesn't work altogether. I have mixed feelings... It's not really awful, but I can't say it's great as well. I guess, if you skip the comic - you won't lose anything at all. This is definitely undeveloped.

I'm not a fan of such random out of context "future" comics, but it quickly got a bit interesting. More interesting, than Spider-Man's shot. There's much more story and the art is okay. However, there's still not enough exposition for me to really care.

Hm... That's not something you would expect from Marvel... I decided to read it because it looked to me like it had vibe of those Mary Jane comics and it actually really is a simple story with a "manga"-like art. I'm not a fan of sport stories, but it's not boring here at least. And it already played with my expectations through the comic and I didn't predict the twists, so it's cool, I'm looking forward to see where it ends.

I love the conclusion. The story is still too typically naive overall, but I love that it has some unexpected things and it's not about the main protagonist always winning no matter what. It feels a bit more realistic, than some other similar stories. So yeah, it's not the best thing I saw in my life, but it's better, than I expected it to be. The art is also really dynamic, I don't know how the guy made tennis look interesting in a comic book. I guess everything can be interesting in a good arms. Man, I now want to read some marvel mangaverse. Never tried anything of this, but maybe it isn't really bad.

1602 #1

Mar 2, 2022

It's only a first issue, but it's already very good. The art is awesome, this pencil style is fitting for the tone of this story. Gaiman is awesome. He introduces all characters through the story and it's entertaining af... This 1602 world is so cool... It's so grounded, but there are still mutants and magicians and gods and everything else what could fit here. There's no scientific crap and etc. I really love how this world works and it's pretty balanced. It's still a Marvel story, but just a little bit less fantastic and superheroic. There was not much action, but this issue is almost overflown by different events and characters. And I can't say, that something was bad. It's just a bit boring in some parts and there are also things, that you will understand only later. But it's not the basis of this story, so it's really enjoyable even when you read it for the first time! I remember how this book infatuated me when I read it for the first time. And I thought this story would be boring or stupid lol. No, it's almost a masterpiece and this first issue is only the beginning.

But I still have some questions just like the characters of this story. And even if I didn't understand everything - it's still one of my favourite comic books which I just can't stop to reread every now and then. Not the best ending, but it's still awesome as a one book.

1602 Vol. 1

Mar 3, 2022

I wish I could rate it as 10. It is a comic of all comics. It's almost a masterpiece. But I just can't ignore some holes and weird decisions. It's a finished story even if there's a set-up for future books. I think Gaiman just made a great work on this one. He just kinda... Overthought it. It is really a little bit too complicated. And not every one of these complications was justified. And I won't stop saying that it's an awesome book and you definitely must read it. Just forget about the sequels and read this one book entirely. Also, it really feels much better as a physical book, not digital. Read this story in one sitting and try to give it a time, don't hurry to read it as fast as you can. Just sit, relax, take this book and read it. And I'm sure you'll be entertained for almost a 90% of the time you spend on this.

1602: Fantastick Four #1

It's not what you may want from the F4 comic, but I think it's okay. That's only the beginning, but the set-up for this story is already good. But the art is arguable... It's okay as well, but it's kinda creepy. P.S. Digital release of this comic has an awful mistake... There's no Reed's bubbles on the last page lol... That's so stupid! I have a TPB edition on my bookshelf, so I could read it properly, but I must warn you that if you think that the last page is weird - it's okay in the original release. Find a scan online if your country's laws don't forbid that. P.P.S And why the hell they are FANTASTICK if they were the four from FANTASTIK? Not even FANTASTIC, lol...

1602: New World #1

Mar 4, 2022

Well... It's more like a Jurassic Park now, not a Marvel 1602... Yeah, this thing with dinosaurs was Gaiman's fault, but he didn't use it like here... And I don't think he planned to... This comic reads as fast as the first 10 pages of Neil's Marvel 1602. And you get almost nothing from that. I mean... Gaiman had so many characters and storylines and he used them almost flawlessly. But there we have only Hulk and Peter, who is on his way of becoming the Spider-Man. And yeah, Virginia, of course, who will definitely be a love interest for Peter and stay in his shadow. I dunno, this book is definitely the development of the last page of Gaiman's 8th issue of Marvel 1602... I can't say if he could continue this story better. And if he didn't - then he couldn't. Greg Pak is a good writer, he's just not Gaiman. And yeah, he is a famous Hulk writer, so it's understandable why he was the one to write this comic. But... Gaiman's Banner was so boring and empty character... He didn't actually use him much. David Banner of 1602 can be described only as a King's man. Nothing more. And you can think that this story will make him more interesting if he's the main character (one of them, I mean). But that's not how it is. He's still the same zero of the character. I think haven't got problems with the Hulk in 1602 after the Thing. He's just boring. Yeah, the narrative is really weak. Almost nothing happens. There's so many pictures with dinosaurs without any text and any point... It's not even an entertaining action. What about Peter... He's okay. And I'm fine with this Jonah as well. He shouldn't be changed. But it's still not enough for me after the story of Neil. The art is worse too. I mean... The artist is good, action scenes are really fascinating. It's just the faces what is wrong here. And... I think Andy Kubert's art was much more fitting with the tone of this story's time. You can disagree with me, but I just think that the second volume of 1602 is weak. But it's only the beginning, so maybe it will be better later.

Kinda stupid and forced. This story is so dumb and naive + art makes it worse. Sometimes it's too hard to understand what's happening. But I can't call it's bad. It's just so-so. Not my type of comics at all.

Um... I wrote the problems of this book in the review of the first issue. To summarize, I want to say, that it's definitely not enough after what Gaiman done... This book is very short, there's almost no new characters and only a few of the old ones, it's not that interesting and entertaining, the art is jumping from sufficient to one of the worst ones... I really see many problems of this comic. I don't believe Spider-Man's limited series will be much better, but I'll still read it, because why not? I already had a run through the whole Noir universe, so now it's time for me to close 1602. And it's not that much to read here.

I wouldn't buy this book, but it was nice to read once. I will definitely not come back to this story. It's too weird and really not that 1602 as it could be, but it is a Secret Wars to blame for this (and to blame for the return of the long forgotten 1602 lol). However, the art is cool. It changes to worse and too simple styles every now and then, but the main art is awesome. P.S. not a fan of such a pointless reprints... One issue of Gaiman's 1602 is not enough, really. But maybe it should tease readers and force them to buy the original 1602 book? Maybe they will understand what's legendary in comparison... I dunno, I hope there will be no more 1602 limited series. This series shouldn't be created too, but at least it wasn't bad. Thanks for this.

A solid start. Miller is a good writer and an artist as well! I was kinda surprised, especially when I saw that I read a Wolverine limited series with his art. Well, Snyder's movie was 10/10 for me. And what about this comic... It's 100% splash pages, so it reads much quicker, than it should. Yet it feels very epic and the art is quite cool, except for some frames where it's hard to say what's happening. Nice beginning, but I think the best is yet to come.

This title reprinted monster stories from all these old Marvel series: Tales to Astonish, Strange Tales, Journey Into Mystery, Tales of Suspense and some others. Then in issue #9 it gives 1 new story and 2 reprinted ones. But since issue 10 there are Man-Thing and Morbius - that's where you should start reading this and if you wanted to read these monster stories from the first 8 issues - better read the original series.

I finally decided to read this small 7-page original story in this comic, that was placed between two reprints. Well, it was not a bad one at all! To my surprise, the artstyle was really cool for that time and the story might be a bit simple, but still fine. Hm, maybe it would make sense to read more of these old Marvel comic series before they were taken over by superheroes. I remember loving non-Spider-Man stories from the Amazing Fantasy #15. Also I will definitely one day return to this Fear series to read Man-Thing and Morbius stories.

Not a bad Man-Thing story here, but short. It's cool to see silent frames and even pages in some old classic comic. Not got used to it. Additional story about some ghost pirates is funny, I guess, but too weird for my taste. There's also one reprinted story from Tales of Suspense #17 and I'll better read it in the original comic later.

I love the choices he makes and it's cool to see other people interacting him. This character really works best of all when there are some other people around him. I also can't not like his sense of justice. The issue also has a reprint from some very old Marvel comic Menace #8.

Honestly, I didn't expect first Man-Thing comics to be that great. I love these Doc Strange-like elements in his stories and this one was particularily cool, because now some supporting cast seems to be staying in the comic for long, plus I loved to see Man-Thing becoming Ted Sallis once again after he was transformed into monster. It's great, because you can see him accepting his fate as the monster and he really isn't a bad person at all. The problem with Man-Thing is that unlike Bruce Banner, he can't become a man again. And if, for example, the Abomination could at least retain his mind in a monster form and talk - Man-Thing can't. So after his origin, you see less and less of a man in Man-Thing. But stories like this help to remind about his other side and give him more character development. Also this issue reprints a story from Strange Tales #93.

At first I was really insulted by this boldly stolen Superman's origin, but honestly, the story is really good. I can even kinda feel this as some Superman "What If" comic. What if Superman wasn't raised and brought up by some good people? What if he grew in his rocket and then came to the world with an intention to explore and embrace it, but everything and everyone was aggressive and rude to him? What could he become then? The cover is really decieving. Wundarr didn't say any words here and it was not some another typical action-packed issue with some generic super guy. I loved how Gerber didn't hurry anywhere and showed us Wundarr slowly exploring the world, making his own conclusions. Man-Thing was almost unnecessary here, but still a good addition. The first pages of Man-Thing exploring the cosmic rocket were surprisingly interesting too. It's written really well. Maybe this Wundarr character isn't that boring. I saw him as Aquarian in Marvel Zombies 3 and didn't think he could be any interesting.

Where did she go here? She just disappeared. And how could she just carry Morbius so casually? 77 kilograms... I doubt I could do it as sweatless as she did.

I understand when Gab Del Otto does this, because his art is a masterpiece and for him it was always really hard to meet the deadline. But this artist is simply one lazy guy... I'm tired of this already! It doesn't help the storytelling at all and makes everything feel so... static? So dead... So lifeless... And I just say nothing about the white space on most of the pages. In one of the previous issues there was almost 33% of space of the page without at least anything... The story wasn't that interesting too, but it's only the beginning, so I forgive it for now.

9 copypasted frames on the one landscape page... 9... Not just 3 or 6 as before. Nine! Heck, I can't stand this. At least this issue had some of the greatest Mark Bagley art... Guys, don't think that I'm a snob or something. It's okay to copy background, because it, well, doesn't move. But people... They are so alive and moving, even when they are not. And the story of this issue was good. Not the best, but much more interesting.

Actually the first really good issue. Only two scenes and all about relationship thing, but it's entertaining and funny. Plus this Doc Ock/Spidey/Johnny scene was so sudden and pointless, that I really liked it. Because... you know... When you read Spider-Man comics, you definitely doesn't think that somewhere near the action two other heroes could be on a date. It makes you think how weird and intertwined marvel world is.

All-New Ghost Rider #1

Apr 7, 2024

When I bought this comic back in 2014, I felt it was mid. Now it feels much better and the art is rather stylish, than annoying. Ghost Rider looks funny instead of scary, but so far the story is OK. Not a bad opening, even though there's not much here. And turns out there were so many different Ghost Riders, so I think I can bear with another one. Even though we all know the purpose of these All-New All-Different 2014 characters.

But okay, Hyde-outed animals might be a good idea.

All-New Marvel NOW Point One #1

Jun 15, 2023

Well, I was here only for Kamala. Her story was okay, at least as a teaser. I wouldn't like it if that was the first time I met her. Surfer's part was fine too. Other than that it's very meh... There are 6 different disconnected stories just to tease some new future Marvel Now series. Shouldn't it... I don't know... Make me get interested in them? It worked for Surfer, I will definitely read that series one day. But Kree part was BORING as hell. Avengers were pretty boring and not cool too. Black Widow's part was cool visually, but as a story I can't say it's something really great. Oh, I also didn't get why they decided it's a great idea to make Loki's story to be interrupted by other stories. Okay, his quest obviously took some time, but I would prefer to read it as one solid story. Overall that's exactly what you should wait from all these potpourri comics - some things might be okay, but that's pretty much it.

But the writer could make it when they actually appear in the story. It had like no sense at all.

Alphacore (2023) #1

Jan 31, 2024

God, it's... complicated. Honestly, I laughed as crazy after seeing this Chuck Dixon afterword in the end of the book... I mean, the guys are so obsessed with being the hammer to crash THE BIG TWO, so they just keep missing the point of what makes a good comic book... Like at all! I mean, who the fuck in the world thinks that there's only Big Two and their comics are something people love no matter what? That's just bullshit. Marvel has tons of awesome comics. Take Immortal Hulk, for example. It not only has the outstanding art of Joe Bennett (who is surprisingly the artist of this Alphacore book, which I hyped at first), but the story is also really great. Here we have a fine art, but no real story to be involved in. After Immortal Hulk this book feels like a setback for Joe, it just doesn't give him an opportunity to really show his talent. There's a lot of normal people and their faces, which is not the strongest part of Bennett's art. A few monsters were great, though. But okay, let's talk not about that Big Two, but about Image Comics, for example. I mean, I just finished the Invincible not long ago. If there was such a thing as "Marvel/DC hegemony" - it would never be one of the greatest superhero comics of all time. Not even superhero, just comics. And it's not only mine opinion. What makes it so damn great? What, fucking, makes it so damn great, I'm asking you? STORY!!!!! S-T-O-R-Y! And... you won't believe it... get ready... C-H-A-R-A-C-T-E-R-S! You just open the first issue of Invincible where literally almost nothing happens at all, BUT YOU GET INVOLVED! You just CAN'T STOP READING IT, because it's so damn great. You begin to love all the characters, you remember their real names, their aliases. Their costumes are unique and iconic. You cry when they die, you're happy when they're happy, you just live their lives with them, through them. And what about Alphacore? Do you remember any of the character names after reading a big TPB book? Are you thrilled to see the next book? I'm happy for you if you do. I don't. Why don't Eric talk about Image Comcis? The Savage Dragon? Spawn? It's not big two, Image was literally formed by Marvel outcasts and it succeeded like hell! Out of nothing! Why Rippaverse can't? Okay, as always Eric talks about nnnnnumberrrrrs! And yeah, he made a lot of money already, but not from comic fans, only from his YouTube audience who don't even read comics... And mostly because the books cost too much. If you judge by the number of covers sold - it's really far from a success. Of course it's a success for him, because he made some product and found some people to sell it to them. But generally speaking it's not a success. Success is when random people love your books and your characters. When big studios buy licenses to make live-action and animated movies about your characters. If it was the case - yeah, then "the libs" would be owned. Back to the book. What are the heroes here? What characteristics they have? There's literally not a single thought of these characters was given to us besides dialogues. The comic is full of dialogues and that's it. No exposition, no info about any characters. We have a typical Superman rip-off, who is an army man. That's all we know about him! He's strong, he can fly, almost invincible. Just like I said - Superman rip-off. There were a lot of them already. I'm not a fan of such characters. Even Marvel has their boring Hyperion, but on the other hand there's Sentry, which at least looks somehow memorable and has personality. Okay, next. There's some woman. She can... Um... I honestly didn't even remember what was her power... She can't fly and she doesn't like to be treated as some super-freak. She wants to be viewed as a cop. That's it. No more character information. No personality. She developed some connection with one side character, though, but it didn't look much important to me. Not really believable. But that's not it yet! We also have some strong black guy. Again, yeah. Strong black dudes just always work no matter what. Who is he? He can't even speak! He had not a single fucking line of dialogue in the comic! Man, shit, what the fuck? Doesn't he think? Couldn't Chuck give us at least some insight at what this guy thinks about? What he loves? Why he does what he does? How he got his powers? No info. Nothing. Zero! Fucking emptiness. He's just strong and that's it. I just can't forget the issue of Invincible, where he fought Thragg on the sun and they just couldn't speak, so the whole issue could be silent. But! We got one of the best Mark's speeches in all of the series! It was sooooo damn great I almost shed a tear... Okay, what about the villains here? We have some electric dude, which can practically melt everything with his electricity. He's insane and... that's it, again. We also have some lava Ben Grimm. God, he even has 4 damn fingers, just like Marvel's The Thing! This is insane... Eric July is so fucking envious of Marvel, that he just can't stop ripping off their iconic characters... But HIS characters miss FUCKING PERSONALITY! They miss everything. We know, that he lives with his granny and he's kinda dumb. That's it. That's FUCKING it! Yeah, I know Eric told he loved Marvel/DC before they went woke. But he could at least take inspiration in the personalities of Marvel characters, not their looks. God, it's insane. I really can't believe they think it's good... They must think it is, if they keep doing it... I don't know, maybe Eric just laughs at his audience and keeps seeling them this crap over and over again... He just exploits people who believe that corporate comics are bad by definition. People, that never saw a good comic book. People, that keep watching YouTube videos about how woke and bad Marvel and DC. Yeah, that's true to some merit. But every woke Marvel comic is just a product of its time, just like those comics from 40's, where everything was about WW2 and those comics from 60's, where everyone was fighting communists and crap. It's just fucking temporary. It'll stop one day, but Marvel/DC still have tons of immortal stories that are objectively good and will always be in the hearts of fans all around the world. Will these Rippaverse books be in the hearts of anyone at all, besides their creators and those who bought into them being a breath of fresh air? It's a fresh air only for those who never knew that breathing was a thing... But anyway, the comic is better, than ISOM #1 at least because there's a somehow finished detective story (to some merit, again), no teasers of other series that don't make sense for the story, no pointless splash-pages just to waste some space. It has okay action, the art is fine, but the story is just an excuse for this comic to exist, not something to be considered really good... It feels like Eric got his hands on Bennett and was like "oh, okay... the dude's great. Just let him draw anything and everyone will love it, because it'll look cool". But that's honestly not how it works. I think our planet will explode the day there'll finally be a great Rippaverse story... For now it just keeps to be a rip-off both in terms of ideas and money. If only some actually good ideas were ripped-off... I give it 6.5 only because I didn't spend a dime on it, Joe Bennett was fine and it wasn't at least boring. I just can't rate it any higher - it doesn't deserve it. And for a price of this book it reads too fast. I'm known for giving some things a bit higher rating, than they deserve, but only because I know that it could be sooooo much worse. Much much worse. It's nothing for a book to be proud of, though.

Amazing Fantasy (1962) #15

Aug 19, 2021

Well, I read that Spiderman story around three times in my life and I didn't know, that there also were 3 other stories from Stan and Steve... Non-superheroic stories. To be honest, this Spider-Man origin feels very rushed (only 12 pages), especially if you read Ultimate Spider-Man or saw movies about this hero. But the core elements of the story are excellent. It was really great, especially if you compare it to the other 3 stories. I think, I can rate it 9.0. Not a flawless story, but still awesome. The second one is about an old bell-ringer. A volcano erupted and when all people of the island were fleeing away, that old guy stayed and was... abducted by the aliens? Or the God? Or was it just the interpretation of death? I don't know, it seems very rushy and poorly developed. Yeah, I saw the last day of pompeii reference, but I still don't know... I can rate it only 6.5. Next one was even more weird... The guy was running from the policeman and hid in the museum. And then THE MUMMY just started talking with him. Okay, it is Marvel, it's okay. But then mummy hid him inside of its case and the guy just disappeared. And you know where? In the Egypt! And the Egyptians made a slave of him... Okay, 7.5, this one is at least hilarious and not only stupid. And the last story was about martians. I don't know, it is a very short, but still boring story. However, the ending was... unexpected. It really even can amaze someone... Firstly I thought that it was a drawer's mistake or maybe some "expression" thing that is common in the comics. But no. And I don't want to spoil it. 7.0 Okay, to conclude, Steve Ditko is a legend. I can't say something wrong here about his art. It was great in all stories. But Stan... Okay, I can forgive that for the creation of one of my favourite superheroes of all time. (9 + 6.5 + 7.5 + 7.0) / 4 = 7.5. But I will rate it 8.0 + 0.5 for the iconicness.

Sep 1, 2022

Let's celebrate Spidey's 60th birthday and read this sudden AF #1000... Why is it 1000 in the first place? I honestly don't understand the logic. But who cares... So, about stories: 1st story - Falcone/Cho - 8.5. It's really short, but nice. It has a message and the art is cool. Might be better, but it's an awesome opening for such a book. 2nd story - Slott/Cheung - 10. Totally deserved 10. That's a brilliant story with a brilliant art. It's just something you wait from the comic like this. And it's not a typical story, it has a few unexpected moves. I'm really impressed. 3rd story - Lannucci/Stegman - 6. That was a rather boring story especially after the tone was set by the previous two... The art isn't that good as well. Not bad, of course, but still... Plus this new villain is mediocre. 4th story - Rowell/Coipel - 7.5. Very short story and it's not like it's an outstanding thing. Just a cute story. However, even if I like Coipel, his art here was not that good... He can draw better. 5th story - Anderson/Camuncoli - 5.5. The art is weird and the story is messed up as hell. There's almost no sense at all. Yeah, it's cool when Spidey saves somebody - it's just could be made much better. 6th story - Busiek/Dodsons - 6.5. That was a meh story. I love Dodsons, but they are much worse here, than in Marvel Knights... Busiek wrote a weird story, however it was a direct sequel to one of the stories of the Amazing Fantasy 15 and oh god thanks that I read it, because if not - I would get almost no satisfaction from this story. So, 6.5 is fine here, I think. This weird glider-woman is a dumb idea, but I love the connection and seeing story being completed after 60 years - is a great feeling. 7th story - Hickman/Checchetto - 8. Pretty solid story with a nice art. The message is cool, but I personally think it could be better. 8th story - Gaiman/McNiven - 9. It's more like a facetious Gaiman's autobiographic story and it's just awesome. I really wish ALL stories here were more like this one - not some random crap, but something that gives us a real feeling of long Spidey's history and his importance for the people. However, McNiven's art really reminds me of Kaare Andrew's art here. I wish he had better inker and colorist in this story... 9th story - Pasciullo/Nauck - 7. Yeah, it's more like a memorial for Pasciullo, but I think this story is weird. This new character is questionable and the message isn't that "new" as well. However it's not bad and the last page is a perfect conclusion for this issue. So, overall, this is a good book. Not all stories are great, some of them are boring or just odd here. They feel really unnecessary and kinda ruin the book. But on the other hand we have some masterpieces, which is just so rare in the modern comics. My rating for the book (considering an average of 9 rates) is 7.5. But I want to make it a bit higher just because some stories here really deserve that. But yeah, the pacing is arguable because of the worst ones and the tone changes too often here... If you are a real Spidey fan - this is a must-read for you today.

I don't know, it wasn't that good as I expected it to be. Seeing Joe Bennett's art from 1997 was kinda cool, but the story might be much better. The issue barely concentrates on Peter's past - it's even more about how the Kingpin took the grip of the criminal world. Also this issue sets-up the third Rose. Though it still gives us a few new moments with uncle Ben, it's really not that much too really love this comic. Yeah, Peter was a comic book fan. For a... a few days? Okay. He wanted to be a hero and he will be, it was cool to see him as a 12 yo kid dreaming about a costume and fame. Especially if you know that he'll get the costume, but be no famous (more like infamous). But me myself personally don't like how he got the idea for his web-shooters long ago before the spider's bite. Sorry, not a fan of writers using such backdating. The last 3 pages is a good addition to the story, but it's still pointless. Yet not bad.

Good start, but the age of this comic does a thing. Some parts of this were done poorly even for that time. Also mistakes such as "Peter Palmer" spoil the impression too. However, there are many stories and it's cool to read the very beginning of such a great superhero.

Well, the Vulture is fine. But I don't like the Tinkerer story. I mean, it IS a nice story and it must be very cool for that time, when this was printed. But knowing what Marvel done with the Tinkerer later... This beginning just seems kinda dissapointing. However, Peter is working on Jonah now and he has a web-belt. I also can't believe, that there was Now magazine before Daily Bugle. Did they retcon it later?

Almost flawless issue. This is the first really good spider-man story (if not count his origin). The one big story with a good script instead of two half-sized + new greatest and iconic spider-man villain. They even showed his origin here! Also this story is interesting, because Spidey even was defeated, but with the help of Human Torch cameo, he finally succeed! It is a masterpiece.

"This nonsense has gone far enough" - quote of the issue. And that's what I thought while reading the second mini-story... Pointless FF fight (I really already had enough FF in this series...), stupid Parker behaviour, VERY ACCURATE WEB-BAT and other things... Jack Kirby is great and it was cool to see him in this series, especially if you know, that it was he who designed the first unused version of Spider-Man and he could be the penciler of his story. But the script is awful, just like the main idea of that story. What about the first, bigger one... Well, it's not that cool too. The Living Brain is a bad villain... It's not even a villain, to be honest... After Vulture, Doctor Octopus, Sandman and Lizard, Stan Lee introduces just a big green robot? It was designed to answer every question, but somehow it also could fight? I won't believe that... It's stupid. Also there was a good cliffhanger, when Spider-Man's identity was almost revealed. I guessed what would the answer of that robot be... BUT NO. THERE WAS NO REAL ANSWER. JUST SOME ""SYMBOLS"" THAT COULD BE ""SOMEHOW"" TRANSLATED, BUT STILL NO ONE TRANSLATED THEM... So stupid... I hate false cliffhangers... The battle was not of the greatest ones too. To win, Spidey just pressed some buttons on the control panel and that is all. Why couldn't he do it at the very beginning of the battle? Mystery... This comic is a mistake, it's a shame... I like the art and some parts of the story. BUT WHAT THE HECK, PETER AND FLASH BOXING?? AND PETER JUST DIDN'T PRETEND THAT HE WEAK???? HE ACTUALLY DEFEATED FLASH EASILY AND UNHARMED AND NO ONE GUESSED A THING ABOUT HIM NOT BEING THAT WEAK AS THEY THOUGHT HE WERE????? Aaaaarrrr...!! I like Ultimate Spider-Man where Peter almost always allowed himself to be kicked in the ass just to be sure that no one will ever think that he's a Spider-Man (spoiler, one of the school guys still figured that out)

I don't know, I enjoyed this issue, it was quite funny and not bad at all, even though the Beetle is a rather boring villain. I'm not really a fan of these early Spidey/Torch comics, as you might notice by my ratings, but anyway, this time the chemistry between them was cool. But I don't understand why Spidey couldn't just say "hey Torch, your girl was kidnapped by the Beetle!". Wouldn't it be, um... simpler?

And his suit was absolutely clean. And what was that... um... ray? It wasn't even mentioned. It must have been that that device + this liquid metal somehow caused this reaction, but it was never explained in the comic. Plus the way Raxton was defeated is pretty silly.

This rating is that high not because of the fact it's the first iconic appearance of MJ (but it's iconic, truly iconic). I honestly really liked the story, to my own surprise. The idea of using JJJ's son like this is kinda cool and it was executed well enough. Not a bad way to make Spidey preoccupied with something while Rhino is resting. The bank robbery thing was great too. The suspense was hold long enough and the explanation was reasonable enough. I only wish Spidey could say NO TIME TO EXPLAIN, THERE A BOMB instead of just boasting about how easy it is for him to bend those steel bars...

Very big annual, but I like it. There's a big 41 page sinister six story, which wasn't perfect, but it's still cool. Also I liked the gallery of most famous Spider-Man's foes, but the title is a crap... It is literally all of the spider-man's foes, not most famous. Guys, they even made a page for the burglar, that killed uncle Ben... And if the showcase of all spidey's powers was boring, but useful, then "Supporting Cast Pin-Ups" were boring and pointless. But the final story about the creation of Spider-Man was funny. Maybe even hilarious... To conclude, it isn't a masterpiece, but this comic was the greatest spider-man book at that time. Every fan must check it out.

It's okay, not a bad comic, but not a very exciting one either. I wish there was more time to show the chemistry between Spidey and Doc. Pin-ups with new Spidey villains (since annual #1) are cool, but there was not that many. Lazy Stan couldn't create new villains every month. The remaining 40 pages are just reprints, while the new story is normal sized. So technically, Spidey-fans of that time who never skipped a single issue just paid 25 cents instead of 12 for the new story... Stonks, I guess.

Sleep... It's really quite boring. And these tons of pointless text seem to come out from the 60's... I mean, some of the scenes really seem longer, than they should or feel to be. There were 3 stories. The first one was fine. Not really interesting, but the art really made it better. Byrne is awesome artist. The second 4 pages Scorpion story was really short and pointless. I didn't get the idea. And the last story was something to give new readers a sense of a Spidey's powers. But I dunno... This whole "No more" story again just doesn't work for me. Okay, he's still not a Spider-Man this time, okay, but we all know, that he will eventually become Spider-Man again, so what's the point? I can't say it worth reading, but maybe it'll be better later. I don't want to believe it was bad before JMS.

First of all, it's a tie-in for some Maximum Security event, but the things from the cover were only on two pages of the comic... They appeared, said something untranslatable and just got away... And the Green Goblin parts in this and the previous issues are just soooo random and unnecessary for the story... I understand, that these first ASM vol 2 issues are mostly advertisement for Peter Parker: Spider-Man and some other random limited series and events, but hell, it is bad!

Wow, that was cool. I like that the events of the previous arc have lasting effects. It was a good issue of Peter knowing more about his father. And that story told by his father's friend was fine. The conclusion only makes it better - Peter literally instantly had a chance to show that he learned a lesson from that story. The only thing that bothers me is Spidey doing that in front of the guy who told Peter this story only a few minutes ago. I mean, hell, the guy must be in quite a shock if he didn't instantly understand that Spidey is Peter. Also I thought this Squid villain would ruin the issue, because lol, it's just a random guy from that team of 5 new random villains. But no, he was much better this time. I like that Mackie made him less random. But it's still weird, that it was Peter father's friend who is the father of this villain. Too much coincidences, but either way, that was a solid issue overall and I love to see the quality of ASM raising before even JSM. If you just like me had a fear that after a solid Goblin arc Mackie came back to writing some boring shit - don't be deceived. It's good.

It's not a bad and also quite amusing issue, but it leaves too many questions. What's with the cat? Why did AIM made it? How did they experiment on it exactly? Why did they need to hire some two random gangsters no one will ever remember and use again? I don't know, it feels really random. But since it reads fine and has a nice Romita Jr art - I really can't rate it lower. I actually kinda even appreciate that Mackie tried to make these gangsters memorable by giving them some special repetitive phrases, but it's really not enough. Not enough.

Fine issue, but I really can't say anything else much about it. Gang wars, Enforcers - every time it's the same. Though the opening Peter scene was really amusing and Bennett's art was great all along. Yeah, Mary Jane is alive. Wow! I couldn't even think about it.

The art is awesome. Plus it's cool to see Peter finally find MJ. And the explanation of this Stalker was okay. It still feels a bit random, but not bad. And I really hate when they make the second part of the story for that Peter Parker series... But either way, I finally closed this gap in ASM vol 2! Now I think I'll read more Peter Parker: Spider-Man. That series was published in my country since issue 30 and I even read it, so it would be nice to relive these childhood memories.

Page two just demonstrates why Gaydos is a bad artist and Romita Jr is great. Well, this story was good. Good, but this conclusion is very depressing... Well, it's all about being a hero... P.S. There's some info you may find interesting: "When Spider-Man comes to Doctor Strange for help, Doctor Strange mentions that he is busy, and the reason that he is busy was something to be revealed in a Doctor Strange miniseries "The Other Side of Darkness". However, that miniseries never came out. Instead, two years later, Straczynski wrote a revamped Doctor Strange origin miniseries called Strange. More than five years after this issue came out, Straczynski was on the way out as the writer of Amazing Spider-Man after a long and acclaimed run. But he couldn’t just leave that Doctor Strange plothole hanging there. So, in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #24, the second part of One More Day, the story that is titled "The Other Side of Darkness", Peter, desperate, decides to try to cast a spell himself. It does not go well for him but Doctor Strange rescues him and finds a way to cure him. But to do so, Strange needs to take Peter back in time to a time when Strange knows that he was not present at his Sanctum Sanctorum. He ended up back at this issue. So, the Doctor Strange who spoke to Peter back in this issue was actually a time-traveling Doctor Strange from the future. So the appointment Strange had with death behind those doors was Peter."

Huh, I'm finally here... On the story arc, that most people feel to be the worst in Spider-Man history... Never read that before, but for now it's cool. Very interesting and entertaining. Plus Mike Deodato is a worthy replacement for the Romita JR. His art is so cool... You know, I already know that they retconned Gwen to be whore, but... For now I don't feel this idea that bad. She had a period of time, when she wasn't in the city. She is a person and people aren't flawless, they can make mistakes. And all this story just gave Norman more reasons to kill Gwen. Plus, it could make all old fans and Peter to hate Gwen and finally accept Mary Jane as the only one appropriate woman for Peter... Yeah, it's still hurt and people chose to hate Marvel instead of Gwen, but this twist could make you feel emotions. Even bad, but strong emotions. I dunno what I will say about the issue with that twist, but for now I'm fine with that, especially when they retconned it in the 2021 ASM run.

This is a very hard story. This story is very hard for Peter. And that's why it so hard for fans. You know, all of you just rate it as 1.0 because you disagree with this decision of the people behind this book, but is it really worth it? I read bad comics in my life. I read boring comics, I read crazy and disturbing comics without any logic in it, I read comics with an eye-bleeding art. But this is none of these cases. This comic is very emotional and it can make you feel emotions. Even negative, but still, it gives you much more, than any typical story, where Spider-Man kick some bad guy's butt. Actually, I never really liked Gwen at all. I thought, that Peter was meant for MJ from the very beginning. From the first mention of "Anna Watson's daughter". Okay, Peter loved her. He still loves her. That's fine. But was she a really good person? We didn't have a chance to really know. And Peter too. So much of her time spent was behind the scenes and Peter spent so much time fighting bad guys and not going out with Gwen. Yeah, that's cool, when you think only good about people, but not all of them are angels. She really thought, that Peter would accept her with two kids from the other man. And not just other - it's his mortal enemy by the way! Do you think, she would think of him like that, if he at least had a sex with her from time to time? And you know what? PETER WOULD TOTALLY ACCEPT HER WITH HIS CHILDREN! BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HE IS. He is the romantic fool indeed. He is so "right", that sometimes he loses the connection with the reality. And how can you blame Gwen? You have a boyfriend, who doesn't have a nerve to have sex with you. And then you meet a real mature man with charisma, and he is so attractive, that it's just wakes your animal desires up. How could she resist? And yeah, this was retconned, but still, it doesn't make this story less logic. To be honest, I don't even understand how they could retconned it... Did they mess MJ's memory too? Maybe I need to read it, but I really don't look forward to it. I don't think that this story was a mistake. The retcon of it was a mistake. It was done to justify that insane run by playing with the feelings of fans, who felt humiliated by this comic. It's far from 1.0. "It makes sense now. It all makes sense now". The absence of logic is the only real thing, that I hate in comics so much. And this story is... Yeah, it's a hard pill to swallow for many of you, but this story is logic and really well-written. I disagree with the crowd and I rate it higher, than many of fans would dare. And I'm still a really big fan of this character. The only thing that is really bad here and even I can't justify this - is the Norman's face, when he f*cked Gwen. That's just unforgivable... I wish Mike chose something more appropriate. Guys, just reread the last two frames. Peter just found out, that his dead ex-girlfriend cheated on him. And he thinks how to save her (AND OSBORN'S) kids, because that's the last thing left of her. OF HIS WONDERFUL GIRLFRIEND, THAT HE STILL LOVES SO MUCH, AND HE KNOWS, THAT SHE F*CKED WITH HIS ARCH ENEMY!!!!!! It is who Peter is. And you should blame Stan Lee for this. Because that's his basis of this character. And who could blame Sam Raimi's Peter for accepting Mary Jane after Flash, Harry, SPIDER-MAN, John Jameson Jr and Harry again?

First of all, Mike Deodato is awesome. Now I can review this issue. If second part was focused on MJ, than this - on May. And it was nice. And Tracer... He's such an interesting character... But that's so sad, that most of the action was off-screen. There was a fight in the second part, but we saw it only through the TV. And now there was a giant robot, as they said, but we didn't see that... And they actually killed Tracer... And he didn't return so far. This whole potential was wasted... It's just dumb. But well, we have what we have. And it's a good issue overall, I like to reread it. I wish Marvel remember Tracer and tell us more about him... He wasn't even a human. Who created him and why? Also here's the problem I have with most of the parts of this arc - the main disease story almost doesn't move here... Spidey just met Morlun and decided to tell his aunt about the disease... That's all.

This issue is iconic. If you thought, that his first fight with Morlun was hard, then look at this one. Here's the pure action and this action is good, man... Peter's monologue inside his head is so full of hope, but he didn't win this fight... Man, that creep took his eye and ate it... I know, that american people of that time knew, that Spidey won't die, because Marvel already announced many other comics featuring him and etc. But in my country and in my age I couldn't just google it, so I really thought that he will die. It worked for me, so I rate it 10. This issue is unbelievably awesome. Truly amazing. Still loving it.

Power and responsibility... What makes their love so "unique"? I mean, why not take Mr Fantastic's and Sue's marriage? Why Spider-Man? Why Peter will feel guilt if May dies, but will not if he makes a deal with the devil? Because he will forget it? Okay. And how the hell should it work exactly? Mephisto just rewrites the reality, but in a way convenient for the author and the editors? And what MJ told him? How many unanswered questions... And who will ask them? I believe it won't be Joe Quesada. I googled there was a "you will make me remember everything" phrase, but wtf? She isn't. So, Mephisto didn't agreed to her. What was the point? Peter agreed to the deal before he actually thought about it. This decision was based on emotions. It's irresponsible. And stupid... WTF, May was already old enough, how could he prefer her life over his future? Why didn't he took responsibility and lived with the guilt as he lived after Ben died. It's the same story, the same. But if at the age of 15 he lived over it and became a better man, now he just retconned himself and destroyed so many years of character development... But well... If Sins Past was retconned (even as dumb as it was done), then it's only a matter of time when this bargain will be undone. We just must be patient. How hard can it be, right?

Meh... This Rabin guy is puny as hell... And yet he's really creepy. Maybe it's just me, because I had an irrational fear of a similar guy in my childhood. There was a schizophrenic man walking around my neighbourhood, he always mumbled something to himself and he had a similar dark beard. Me and my friends loved to walk around him and see what he's doing, but I freaked out every time I saw him close. I kinda think it's okay, that Wells gave a second chance to Rabin, because he's just a typical one-story-only dumb villain here. And yeah, I also want to admit, that maybe I like Bachalo's art more, than hate it. Not like I reeeeeally hate it, but when I get used to the style - it's very easy to appreciate all the hard work that was put in this art. By the way, anyone understood how and why Rabin grew his beard in a moment and then just shove it? I mean, how much sense in this?

And also at this point the comic resembles some TV series, it's interesting enough and not 100% focused on Peter. I want more JJJ, by the way. And seeing Peter as paparazzi isn't a bad thing as well.

It's not bad. And I think I love this artist. I remembered I saw him in Daredevil and Doctor Strange: The Oath. Also wtf, did he really drew THE WALKING DEAD: THE ALIEN? The art was meh there... But it's great here. I really like it.

It's... Not really bad. And I see the Kraven's Last Hunt reference even in the Vermin's appearance. But... I really do question Ana's intelligence. I mean... She searched info on Peter on the internet, she tried to shoot him on his work, she saw she didn't make it, she saw how he moved, but... For some reason she really thinks that Vin is Spider-Man. Okay, why not, dumb russians once again, it's nothing new. But wtf is wrong with Peter himself? Does such "masks" work in Marvel comics as well? I mean, his face is almost entirely shown in that Daredevil suit. At least Vin will definitely expose him. Oh, who am I trying to deceive here... Of course everyone here is dumb.

Yeah, I always love when Punisher and Spidey team up. But... This comic is weird. First of all, the Jameson/Bookie story is dumb, it wasn't needed, it was weird, it interrupted the story. But even the main story wasn't THAT good. I love Rivera, but what the hell did he do with Punisher's skull? And his art was overall very dirty here, he had better, much better works. The story itself is a bit boring, but the ending was cool. I also didn't think this Moses Magnum guy isn't some random one-issue only crook - he's actually a very old Spidey's villain (and not only his) and even his first appearance was in another Spidey/Punisher team-up, but Wells writes this comic like every reader knows this guy and it's a classic Green Goblin level villain... I don't even understand what was the point of picking him as a villain in this book in the first place... P.S. Peter now wants to be a cabbie! That "Wa alaykumu s-salam" scene in the beginning of BND might has even more sense now.

I guess, it would surprise me even more if I didn't see Vermin biting Spidey a few issues back. The only thing I didn't like about it is how short it is... Not enough for me after a few mediocre arcs.

Hey, Wells! Learn from Stern how to use a no-name villain! Actually, this Blank guy was only in West Coast Avengers written by non other than Roger Stern himself, so he decided to remember his old C-tier villain for this Spider-Man story. And it wasn't bad! There was a retelling of his story and he even could get some proper character development, but he didn't... Okay, Blank starts to lose control of his powers. And so what? How did it affect the story? However it's still a good comic. Not a fan of characters like Donovan, though, who somehow already met Peter, but we didn't see it anywhere.

How Harry could cure a vibranium-skin guy with a thing against Molten Man is a mystery for me, though. Not a bad story, by the way, but the ending was kinda meh... And RIP Bookie. Can't say I will miss him, the character was destroyed through the BND arc, but it was a nice idea overall. Without him all villains in that bar will miss betting on everything...

Just want to say - I hate political PR stories... Chameleon impersonates Obama... Okay, it wasn't really bad, but it's funny how Spidey makes fun of Biden twice and now in 2023 Biden is the president (at his finest) and everyone loves him. Interesting how our world changed since then... I guess it's why I prefer to read these old comic books over the new ones. But the main story is fine. I guess it's a bit... Well... I just don't think it's that cool, that's what I can say with my pretty limited vocabulary. But I can't blame Peter for being nice with Betty when all her friends turned away from her, because now he's nice with the man, who killed his girlfriend, crippled his school bully (temporary, but still), almost killed his wife and aunt... And that's not even the end of the list of his sins.

This period of TASM isn't flawless, but it's definitely one of my favourites. Awesome art of John Romita and then Mike Deodato both junior + fresh ideas of JMS made it pretty solid and interesting. It had some kinda boring arcs and maybe wrong decisions, but overall, it mostly good and I like to reread these stories. Straczynski made Spider-Man great again and showed his powers from the other perspective, without actually retconning his origin.

Fans hate it just because they didn't think, that Gwen could be not an angel. If you find out that your girlfriend cheated on you, then you still yell, that it's out of her character? That's how life works sometimes. Sometimes it's shit. And why the hell all comics should be funny and innocent? This is an interesting arc, that's written very well. I wasn't bored even for a second. Plus art is gorgeous. In the reviews of individual issues I tried to explain why this Gwen twist isn't bad at all, so I don't want to repeat myself. But maybe after my reviews some other fans just think for a second and maybe they will have their own opinion.

It's kinda boring and a bit weird. The Sandman's small story was okay, nothing's really outstanding, but better, than the first one. The art in the first story was especially weak for the new age of comics. I can't begin to imagine how some of the Spider-Man fans got tired of Harry's "revivals". The villain in the story was pretty weak too. There were some good moments with Normie, but that's pretty much it. Overall it's a weak annual, but I think I still rather liked it, than not liked.

Well... I'm here for Kamala, but I will definitely get back to this ASM volume. After I read Superior. But still, I kinda remember this era of Spider-Man. At least this Spider-Britain tie-in story was in my Spider-Verse omni. I think the first Spider-Verse was a super cheap and fan-service idea, but at least an original one. It wasn't that bad. The main story with Kamala team-up is okay, but that's pretty much it. It was only a beginning, nothing's really interesting and epic. I'm really not a fan of post-superior Spider-Man era from what I tried reading there and Slott isn't that awesome at portraying Kamala, but the comic was fine overall.

Amazing Spider-Man Extra #1

May 6, 2023

This limited series was very important for the main Spider-Man series of that time. This issue has 3 new stories. The first one is about how Mr. Negative brought Hammerhead back. It's also a huge flashback to Joseph's life. I hate it when ALL character powers and names are somehow linked to their childhood. I mean, Hammerhead was called like that by school bullies, his father did beat him with a hammer, he himself did beat other people with a hammer... I don't know, it's a bit overthought. The second story is... lame. Just lame. But the power of friendship is fine. And the last one was a bit boring, but satisfying in the end. Can't say I didn't like it.

Um... Actually! The third story was pretty unnecessary, overdue and pointless epilogue to that Ana Kraven story arc. The first one was a fine epilogue to the whole Character Assassination arc. But the second story! Yeah, it was mostly here just to show that Norman DID free Lily out of prison, but still, it was soooo cool to see Norman as a father. Oh my god, how freaking badass he was! He's mostly the reason why I rate it this high. Other than that it would be a standard 7.5.

Amazing Spider-Man: Cinematic Infinite Comic (2014) #1

Oct 4, 2023

It looks like this prequel was made only to show why Peter changed his suit in the second movie. Well... I must admit it was not that bad, but still kinda boring and pointless. The art is fine, but I don't really like this animated comic thing. I prefer classic format. And you can find this comic in this format, it exists, however, I could find it only in some panini magazine on a language I can't understand... So yeah, had to stick with the original version.

This story is very arguable. Very arguable. It has some flaws, maybe even many of them, not all decisions of the writer were good and working for me. But the art is awesome. If not for the art, I'd rate it 7.5 or 8. Actually, nice TPB-one-shot. That's a rare format for Marvel. I even bought this book years ago. Can't say I really enjoyed that, but it's a nice reading. At least for the art. And I didn't read anything else about Teresa, she seem to become very important, especially for the 5th volume of TASM. So, if you are interested in her origin - then this story is definitely on your to-read-list. P.S. I think, black suit was super unnecessary and odd here...

It's nice. A catchy beginning. Just enough to get interested in the story. The art is simple and cartoonish, but I mostly like it. At least the Werewolf is awesome. And lol, looks like Kirkman can't write PG stories for Image. Every time I see him it's something with a lot of blood in it... Not like I'm against it.

Wow, it's not just great, it's really really good! I already started to blame Gary for being such a hypocrite, but the twist did put everything at its place. It was awesome! And I get more and more interested in the characters and story. Also, I couldn't not notice that this idea of saving some guy to feed of him later was already used by Robert in Marvel Zombies. Do you remember that twist with Pym and T'Challa? I don't know, it worked the second time too! If you thought about reading this comic, I think you should! The Astounding Wolf-Man actually begins much quicker and more interesting, than Invincible. I doubt it'll be that good in a long run, but it's only 25 issues, maybe it will!

Somehow Kirkman could ruin absolutely everything in one issue. Yeah, he did things like this in the Walking Dead and it's obviously only to keep the book moving and interesting, but... I don't know. It's just too much for one issue. But I still look forward to see what will happen next. So yeah, it worked. Not like it was needed though. The books was already interesting enough. I'm really glad Robert doesn't do this to the Invincible. It may work in the Walking Dead, because it's post-apoc and dead characters just make space for new ones. But superhero comics must be repetitive and stable to some measure.

I don't know... Everything about it just feels wrong. I feel like I'm a Spider-Man fan reading his current ASM series. That's not what I came here for. But okay, looks like that's the night when Gary isn't in control of himself. Maybe the next issue will at least be a fun bloody mess. Everything is already ruined to the point of no return, it won't make anything any worse. So yeah. 6/10 only for the fact that it's still not bad of a comic book. I just really don't like the course Robert did set for these characters. It really leaves some unnerving after-taste.

Only 6 issues left... I don't know, it's definitely not what I wanted. Not what I thought this series will be. It's a fine comic, but I feel a smell of some terribly wasted potential...

After the death of Rebecca only Chloe's death would make me feel anything. And I'm not even sure. So Dunford's death looks like a cheap way to make more drama out of nothing, just to show how serious things are. Yeah, the character development through these 22 issues was okay, but honestly not enough to make this something super unexpected and shocking. Rebecca's death was. But either way, it's good. There's also even a Code Blue back-up story. I don't know what to think about it yet, but the twist was okay, I think it'll pay off.

It is a good series overall, but the potential was wasted. It begins so cool only to make you feel desperate when things go to hell. However, it ends on a rather happy note, so I can't say I didn't enjoy the book. It was mostly interesting and great. I just wish Kirkman would have put as much effort into this as he put into Invincible.

Black Panther (2005) #3

Dec 19, 2022

It feels a bit random and slow now. 3 issues of flashbacks and villains readying their attack. Too many villains. Even the freaking Rhino! Also I'm not a big fan of Panther, so I can't say is it OK or not for Klaw to be a killer of Challa's father, but I definitely miss his sound-hand... Where is that and why didn't he have it in flashbacks??? P.S. I checked the first appearance of Klaw and they really kinda retconned the original story... Yeah, the outcome is the same - Klaw killed Chakka, and Challa shot Klaw's hand. But the actual scene was very different and in Wakanda first of all! Not a fan of retcons, sorry... I could understand adding something we didn't see, even if it's hard to imagine how it really could happen (Black Panther vs Cap in WW2, these "lost adventures" of Cap just seem so dumb, he had a pretty intense series back then...), but this is a different matter.

Black Panther (2005) #4

Dec 19, 2022

The cover is weird... The comic is far from a masterpiece as well. Yeah, it's cool, I like to read it. But there are a few buts, that make me like it less. First of all, the villains team here is soooo random and weird... And these Black Knight and Radioactive Man are not the original ones, they are just random dudes, who appeared only in this exact comic series... Okay, why not. But I also find weird this contrast between the suits of Black Knight/Rhino and Black Panther/Klaw/Radioactive Man/Batroc. I mean, when the second half is all realistic and on "Marvel Knights" grown up level, Rhino and Knight seem sooo weird in comparison to them. Yeah, Rhino is Rhino and you can't change him much, but that Black Knight could be different or not be in this book at all. It's not like it lacks villains, because there's also that no-name Cannibal who as well was only in this series. Also there was a mistake. Rhino is called an american. Um... Alexey Sytsevich an american? Okay, why not. But Klaw isn't! And Batroc isn't. It just feels dumb, like Reginald Hudlin didn't make any research at all (and I already had a feeling he didn't read Klaw's first appearance). Well, I dunno, it really could be much better.

The Rhino splash-page was just awesome... As well as the good old Klaw. There's a lot of action finally and I'm totally fine with that. Also I now think, that this russian Radioactive Man was super unnecessary, because it seems every villain here represents a different country. But the Rhino is a russian as well! So two russians... They could at least get an original Radioactive Man or some native american villain...

I'm here again for Marvel Zombies. One day I will read this series too. I read the first 6 issues years before and I remember it to be a nice Black Panther comic book. But I can't say it about this issue. If that's where that series came, then it's bad as a Black Panther comic. But as a comic, that reveals adventures of Marvel Zombies after Marvel Zombies vol 1, it is bearable.

Well... Not a bad conclusion. However, I really didn't like Yelena in this book. I wish I could sympathize her more, but she's not that badass as she should be and it doesn't felt that personal as this story should be. I wish there were more inner thoughts of Yelena and some scenes with her alone or at least more flashbacks. The story feels really flat sometimes. But again, I can't say it was boring or I struggled reading this.

The adaptation was okay, but very rushed starting from the sewers scene...

Still better, than in 1998 movie, though... Anyway, the movie is better.

Blade Cybercomic (1998) #1

Jan 31, 2024

Well... This is a web comic and it was... um... interactive. Kinda. There are several "captures" of this comic and you can still find and "read" them, they are all different a bit, because the comic had some animation and the only way to rip it just doesn't exist. But it's enough to get the basic idea - it's a crap. The art is so-so, the story is... Well, it's just a movie tie-in, it basically explains the world of Blade, but all of this information was in the movie, so it really doesn't have much value if you saw the film. Anyway, good to know such thing existed and was preserved for us to see in 2024. It was just bad. Too short and not really exciting at all.

But the art isn't really bad, even good on most pages. The story is just okay. Not really interesting, but not completely boring. I wouldn't recommend it and it doesn't have much value for the movie, but I can't say I regret about reading it.

I didn't expect it to be this good. Quite a nice piece of the Invincible world. By the way, these stories were colored in this book, so it's cool, makes it much better. There's also an epilogue that seem to be exclusive for the book and it's a nice transition to the 2007 Brit series. Of course there are also some sketches and etc, so be sure to read this TPB instead of the original one-shots, I kinda regret I didn't.

That hit in his eyeball was remarkably awesome. There was one weird scene with that Brit's ex-wife and it felt... odd. Nothing was told about it at all, it just was. Maybe there'll be more info in the next issues, but still, this book would be better of without it. All in all it's a nice read and I really recommend it.

Bullseye: Greatest Hits (2004) #1

Jul 22, 2023

Well, I can see the style of Daniel Way. Just like in Venom 2003 there was no Bullseye for most of the comic, so I really started to worry, but then I calmed down. So, Way made some interrogation an excuse to get an origin story from Bullseye. Why not? It works even if the idea isn't that original. So, as a beginning issue it was a bit boring, it really didn't need THAT much explanation of how freaking impenetrable and cool the prison they keep Lester in. Stop, Lester? He's called Leonard in this comic and even Marvel wiki doesn't mention it at all... Maybe it's a mistake or something... Either way, not like I care. Bullseye is an interesting villain with a long history in Marvel comics, so if the next issues will keep the pace of the second half of this opening issue - I will be fine with it. Also Dillon's art doesn't let me to forget Bullseye from PunisherMax... God, I still see his face when he tried to shit some gun from his ass...

Cage (2002) #1

Jul 13, 2023

Wow, I finally found a good Marvel MAX comic. At least for me. Yeah, the art is really dirty and makes characters look like midgets sometimes, but it's so crispy and fitting, so I like it. The Cage here is badass as hell - just like I would love to see him. Yeah, he kinda looks like an asshole here and I personally didn't expect to see Cage hanging out with some whores, when his image as a husband and father already got cemented in my mind... But I really love reading through this! The story isn't something innovative and epic, just an ordinary casual street level stuff you would expect to see in such comic book. But an epic boss battle with Tombstone is coming and I hope it'll be truly epic. This comic already feels epic even when nothing major is happening. I might be exaggerating and overrating it, but it's indeed much better, than Pale Little Spider, for example.

Um... the comic is still fine, but I'm really disappointed about this Tombstone's both design and behavior... Guess it's just not Earth-616 and Marvel wiki is a lying piece of shit again. My expectations are my problem, but I can't do anything with it. Also it's not like something really new and interesting happens. I hope the final issues will be better. The first two were much more funny and badass.

Well, off to a good start and then such a dumb ending... Meh. I didn't expect something big of this series, but the first issue got me really excited. However, my expectations after the first issue were devastated by the following ones... I guess it's still not a bad story, but a very weird one and it really reminds me of Luke Cage Noir. I guess they took inspiration from this Marvel Max book, but made it much more grounded and believable. And that Noir Tombstone was really great, unlike this one.

Capes (2003) #1

Oct 16, 2023

After reading that 12-part back-up story in the Invincible I decided it's a good idea to read the original Capes comic. It's cool! This first issue is mostly calm, but still funny. I love the idea behind it and the art is badass. It's weird, but it's a super hyperbolic comic art with crooked perspectives and proportions. It could be more... normal... but honestly I don't want it.

I skipped this issue when I read Winter Soldier arc, but I should come back to this and read it before I forget about it... So, here I am. I read House of M many years ago, but remember much of that. Here's something more about the history of that universe. Main series didn't have a word about it, so this issue explains much. But as for Cap it seems more like a what if comic... And I didn't find it that much interesting and fulfilling.

Whew... back to this series after so much time... I already have too many dropped series, so it's time to close some of them up. I never tried this series after the Winter Soldier arc before. Good issue! It reminded me why I loved Brubaker & Perkins. This issue is cool even without Cap as a main character. UPD Just remembered, that Perkins was inker in the previous issues and now he's both inker and artist. Well, I didn't think inker can be this important for the style of the book, because his art doesn't look much different from Epting's if you don't give it too much thought. Cool.

Captain America The Movie! (1992) #1

Oct 5, 2023

This is a good adaptation of a silly movie. I mean... The movie is 3.2 on IMDB... wtf... Yeah, it's silly, it has many weird moments. Take the ending for example. Or this president... But either way, it was not a completely hopeless attempt to make a Cap'n movie. It was rushed, but had 40's and the modern era shown. I loved how Cap reacted to the new world and it was made better, than in MCU. Yeah, the origin was better in MCU 100%, but still. The movie had good ideas and it's definitely not 3.2. I personally would rate it as 5 or 6. I had mixed feelings and definitely not hate. Previous Cap movies were much worse. And this adaptation is a good comic. Yeah, it didn't fix the movie's mistakes (the conclusion was kinda made even worse lol), but it reads fine and Stan was cool here. I think the movie is overhated, because no one really gives too much thought to these old Marvel movies. They were cheap and not for the mass audience, but I personally wouldn't call all of them shit... Man, I think Stan tried to fix the ending, but I don't know. It's even sillier.

Captain America: White #0

Jun 6, 2023

If the previous Blue/Gray/Yellow limited series came out year after year, then between Hulk and Cap we have a 4 year gap. What's even more funny is that fans waited for another 7 years before they could finally see the next issue... And I don't understand how Tim Sale's art can be that much simpler and careless here, than it was back in 2002... I mean, Tim was gorgeous and spectacular in the previous books, but here it's just... like something is missing. I'm curious of what was after 7 years, I never read White before. At first I thought that White was the earliest one, but no, quite the contrary! The story piece in this issue was kinda too simple and short in my taste. For now it's significantly weaker, than the previous books, but still not bad. This is a fine beginning, but not many events are here and for now I don't really see the idea behind this. So, Cap is sad over Bucky's death? He actually must've been already come alive as Winter Soldier in 2005 if I remember it right. So for now I see it only as another flashback, not origin story actually, because we already see Steve as Cap and this is definitely more about Bucky. I don't have anything against it. Also the title... Why white? I guess, not black indeed, but... For every series the color meant something. Because in English colors do mean something else. Blue is for sadness, yellow is for fear, gray is for gloom and white... Maybe innocence? At least that what comes in my mind if I actually remember that it's about a teenage boy sidekick. Yeah, I'll stick to this version. Maybe it was in some official interviews and materials, but I'm too lazy to read them.

Captain America: White #1

Jun 6, 2023

Yeah, the art in this issue is much better in details, than in the previous one. Still not 2002, but hell, it's better, than many other artworks in comics anyways. I feel like Tim really tried to fit the spirit of 40's and 60's with his art here and I even got some Kirby flashbacks in some facial expressions. And Loeb finally started to tell about something white in the story. I loved such moments in Yellow and it still fits here. The story in this issue is better, than in the previous one, but it's still kinda boring for me, because I'm certainly not a fan of these old WW2 stories. But it might be worse, so I take it as it is, pretty modern anyways.

It's good so far. Not a bad beginning for the story. The return of Doppelganger after 17 years. There was almost no Carnage, but it's already better, than Venom (2003). At least the cover isn't misleading. And Crain is really good here. His art isn't that detailed as it was in the Venom vs Carnage (2004), but faces are much better.

Jun 7, 2023

Honestly, it was not that good as I wanted it to be... I was waiting for another 10/10 or so. But well, that's only a book 1. The second one will come this June, the third... maybe in the next June. But still, this first opening book isn't bad at all. I also thought I'd spend more time on it, but it's a lightweight reading, surprisingly: there's not THAT many words. Some pages look like they were made by Stan Lee and some are completely textless, but there's a good balance of dialogues, it doesn't become boring to read. I have some mixed feelings about the art. It's mostly cute and dynamic, I appreciate that the manga-like black and white style is still here, this is canon. But sometimes it's really hard to understand what's happening - especially at night or in some dark caves or when it's snowy. And most of the time it's snowy or dark here... Some frames are drawn very carelessly and sometimes it works, but sometimes I feel like there could be more to it. But well, I can't say the art is bad. Plus I really appreciate when the writer illustrates their own work. If it's not Frank Miller with his modern art style, lol. Okay, the art is actually fine. The story at first got me... Not bored, but... I mean, I saw this already! I played all 4 Telltale games and this comic seems to be a canon for them - it's actually what happened later on. But it began with Clem just wandering pointlessly again. It's nothing new and yeah, the book had some game flashbacks, it even closed the gap between this book and season 4, but I don't think it's how it should be. She shouldn't leave AJ behind. But okay, the writer needed Clem to start over again and after a few chapters she got really close with all these new people. At first I didn't care about them much, but I started almost before it was needed for the story, so I guess the writer did her work great. I only thought there would be a bigger story plot or some epic events, but it's just like another chapter of her life: new people, generic survival again and etc. This story hardly adds something very new and interesting to Clementine's life, but I think it might be worths a reading. But only if you played those games - you will need them to get the best experience of this book. I don't know if the other books will be better or worse, but I'll definitely give them a chance, it's still cool to see Clem in action again, especially in a real comic book. I only hope the further chapters will be more thrilling and entertaining.

It's better, than book one. Still feels very repetitive and not that breathtaking overall, but it's not a bad book to spend your evening reading. Will book 3 be the last? I think it should be.

Code of Honor (1997) #1

Jul 7, 2023

It looks gorgeous, but it's weird to see pages of two different artists mixed up... The story is something more of the Marvels style, but it's not a retrospective, just a casual life and thoughts of some random cop in the world of marvels. I kinda laugh at how weird romantic relationships were in 90's, but it reads fine overall. Maybe it's a bit longer, than it needed to be (I really don't know why we needed 3 more issues after this and what new thoughts there can be), but it feels like a good comic book.

Oh my, two more new artists... And they all look the same... Not really the same, but close enough. Sometimes you see the difference and it kinda ruins the immersion, but not that much. And I see, that the inspiration for this definitely comes from Marvels, especially the oversized format of the issues, but Marvels were much more interesting and brilliantly written, plus the art was consistent and really unique. This comic is okay, but that's pretty much it. It's readable, enjoyable, but I don't think I'll want to read it again. This review sounds like it belongs to the final issue and well, I already feel like the story should end, but no, two more issues.

Code of Honor (1997) #4

Jul 8, 2023

I don't know... It's not like it's bad... Actually a fine book, but I have some small issues with this that made it worse for me. First of all, the artist from the first issue is back, but oh my god, most of his panels look like real photos, only edited a bit. I don't know how it was made back in 1997, but now it can be done by anyone using some filters or something... Feels kinda cheap, especially with all these photographic backgrounds and people, that were put on them without any real effort. Maybe the guy used photos as references and really drew this, but I don't know... It doesn't look that good as Alex Ross, so... I want to call the guy a tracer. The story is fine, but it was very vague sometimes and the conclusion is random as hell... I guess, that makes it realistic, because some women are really that unstable and inconsistent in their decisions, but I want fiction to be over it and give something... more elaborate. It really wasn't a satisfying conclusion for me. Yeah, yeah, happy end, but a very random one. I wish the girl had a better reason to change her mind, than just some words of her husband's mother. I could maybe understand if it were some epic and wise words and if I saw some hesitation at least, but no, it's too simple and flat here.

Daredevil: Yellow #1

Jun 4, 2023

Not a bad beginning at all. Just like in Blue and Grey we have Matt mourning his fallen love Karen and it makes him to go through his past since the very beginning. Well, I'm glad that we didn't have another Spider-Man's origin in Blue, but Daredevil doesn't have that many origin flashbacks as him, so I'm totally fine with it being in this book. This is pretty cinematographic in storytelling and visually Tim Sale's style is something that was literally meant to be in comics. Yeah, yeah, might be another reason to say something like "RIP Tim Sale", but I think it's already redundant - the guy's work will live forever and the fact that we all come back to these books after all these years just proves it. He fucking lives! I went through "Dardevil: Yellow" many years ago and hardly remember it, so why not to read it again?

That was a dog shit. There's barely even Wolverine in it, much more Noh-Varr and Fantomex, but I'm not a fan - they are boring, just like this comic. The story is shit and I'm clearly not a fan of such Ribic's style... He's great on this cover, but not in the comic itself. Some Osborn pics were definitely the worst I saw in my life and I saw many. Got Homer and Bart Simpsons flashback... Can't imagine what anyone can find in it. UPD: Just noticed it's Jason Aaron who wrote this... Well, the guy can do better.

It's a short, but good enough reading. It's violent, sometimes sexy, but not tastelessly edgy. It uses the legacy of first Man-Thing's stories from early seventies to make a solid Marvel Max horror book about the character. I guess I'd recommend it to Man-Thing fans, but casual readers might think some moments are weird or forced, especially everything about Zhered-Na, which has no adequate explanation here at all. Either way it's worth reading, it's better, than many other Marvel Max books.

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1

Jul 9, 2023

I think it's underrated. Yeah, this series is full of dumb kills that would never happen in Earth-616, but... this is not Earth-616, so who cares? For example, Deadpool will kill Hulk in the future issues in Banner form. In earth-616 it wouldn't kill him, he would most likely recover or now after the Immortal Hulk he really wouldn't be dead for long. But this story needed all those deaths to work and deliver us some entertainment, so I choose to shut up and eat some shit that was made to entertain me. I mean, I even bought this book years ago and still have it. I remember this story was much worse, than this, but there's actually a real plot and almost this whole issue was made to set up and explain everything. I kinda hated or gave it too much thought when it was fresh and I was a teen, but now I'm happy to read it as a fun and detached piece of story.

7.5
Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #2

Jul 9, 2023

All the deaths can be justified here with one simple answer: the characters of this universe are just weaker. I mean, I remember the times, when Wolverine could heal from a one drop of blood. However, he couldn't heal in Ultimate universe from his entire skeleton, so why can't he not heal here as well? And Spider-Man's tingling danger sense would work in the mainstream universe, but it failed him here. Maybe he doesn't even have spider sense in this universe, lol. I mean, some of the deaths (Thor's, for example) are truly just a mockery, but I dunno, it's funny as hell. I can see why it can be hated, but I can also see why it shouldn't. Also yeah, it's weird aunt May, Mary Jane and others decided it's a good idea to hire Taskmaster to kill Pool. Yeah, good luck.

Devil Dinosaur (1978) #1

This is the one of Jack Kirby's masterpieces. Behold: Devil Dinosaur. At first I thought that it is a lame and weird idea, but this comic is amazing. I read it for the second time in my life after 5 years and I still love it. Art is almost flawless, story is cool. I think that Devil's origin is kind of strange and naive, but it's fine. This is only the beginning. Meet the Valley of Flame where Dinosaurs, giant spiders, giant ants and prehistorical people live and interact with each other! Not a bad start, but this series is have its aces up in the sleeves, I assure you. Can't wait to reread it.

Epic issue. Giant spider, killer-folk... And Dino shows pretty much good amount of intelligence. He's clever and a good strategist. He don't fight with every creature he sees. If he is outnumbered by enemies and can prepare for the battle, he finds a weapon. If he just needs to save his friend, he do only what needs to be done to achieve this goal: he grabs him and flees. I love this in Jack Kirby's characters. He doesn't write fights just for fights.

This issue starts with an ultra psychedelic dream of Moon-boy and then follows an alien robots invasion. I don't know how Jack could write 4 issues of this series and still make it interesting. All issues are different. I just dream about movie based on this series. But even if Kevin Feige will decide to make it, it will be based on Moon-Girl series, I assure you. Huh, well. Back to this issue: 17 pages were not enough to defeat aliens. And it makes this threat more dangerous and big, than others.

And battle with sky demons is still isn't over! That's a really big story arc for this small series. But new characters are still appear here. For example, Eev. And it's the only one woman... Kinda stupid, Jack, no offence. Also there were more solo Moon-Boy and less Devil Dino at all. Not the best issue of this series, but still not bad at all. P.S. I didn't know, that Marvel had balls in those years. There was a rape attempt. And who knows if it was successful behind the scenes or not... The answer seems to be "yes".

I think it was something like Eden reference. And the dilemma of that issue: to live under the dome in peace with food or to live with risk but to be free. They chose... Well, it doesn't seem to be the choice. Rather coincidence. But it's okay with me. What is not okay with me - that woman, Eev, she is fine now to be with that Stone-Hand guy. And why? He literally raped her. I believe he did it. Women couldn't work in that way even in that reality. She was free, she was fine alone, she wasn't weak. And what now? And well, alien arc is over! Finally, after 4 issues.

Devil Dinosaur: Spring Fling (1997) #1

Aug 22, 2022

Well... That's a Devil Dino and Moon Boy double-sized one-shot and it was written by fans of Kirby's Dino as it says here. And it really has many easter eggs and references to the Kirby's limited series about Devil, but... I just don't know what to say here... The prologue and epilogue are weird and pointless. The first story is fine and the art is okay, but the script itself is kinda meh. I mean, okay, skrull, Gladiator... Devil fought skrull when he turned into big green dino. It's cool, but it needs something more, than that. I would rate it as 7. The second and the third stories were shorter and if the last one was just BAD, then the second was more like average. I mean, the art was pure 90's and the story is just too short to be a real story. Yeah, Devil and Moon Boy have a bond and so what? It's no surprise. Okay, that would be 5. But the last story... I really didn't understand it. That was an utter crap. The art didn't help it - it only made it worse. It's really dirty and scary - reminds me of McKeever's artwork. And I saw Arnold Pander later in one of the Marvel Monsters one shot, he was much better there, but it will be only 7 years after this comic, so... I honestly don't know. Let it be 2/10. So, the overall rating for this is like 4.6 or something... But it wouldn't be fair, because the last stories were short. So okay, let it be at least 6 and I will be fine with that. The first big story wasn't that bad. It was just not on the same level as Kirby's stories.

That's what I needed to heal my brain wounds after some awful War Machine comic... I bought this book maybe 5 years ago or something and read it only once. I liked it back then, but it's time to finally revisit it. Especially now when I know Brian Vaughan and understand how freaking awesome Marcos Martin is. Plus there's Night Nurse and I just finished her classic comic series. Actually, there could be no better time for me to re-read this book. And this first issue is pretty solid! Good beginning for a story, there's a lot of different events and the plot already looks interesting enough. It might look like a Death of Doctor Strange, but it's more like the Death of Wong. I really don't remember anything from this book. At all. Like I'm reading it for the first time... It just makes it better.

Why Lizard? Connors tried to regenerate his missed arm. Why the hell Peter experimented on lizards? Okay... WHY THE HELL MURDOCK IS EVIL? And this version of Rhino is very bad too... For now, her universe seems to me super weird. I bet I won't read her ongoing series. The story itself not that bad, the conclusion was nice. But artwork is bad for me. I saw people prase this art.

This comic is set between Daredevil and Elektra movies, but it just can't be a canon... I mean, Matt already knew she was alive... And also the classic comic costumes are a bit weird to see here. But either way, good to see at least how Elektra was resurrected, but that's it. I don't know, it's just too short and pointless. The art is okay, but too simple on most of the pages. Also the adaptation of the movie literally begins with the demonstration of her resurrection, so this prequel isn't needed at all.

And why the hell this cosmic power made him to be "alive" and indestructible? So, if my computer will take a sip of a cosmic power, then it will be working on its own and I won't be able to destroy it with a hammer? That's stupid...

Um... It's a nice comic, but it's a bad conclusion for the series... I wanted all stories to connect here... Okay, I still need to read Thena's annual. But what's about Ajak? Kirby simply forgot about him... It's not a satisfying end at all.

Eternals The Complete Collection

Feb 7, 2022

I don't like the conclusion, because there's no conclusion at all, but it was still very good, except some weird moments, where logic just flew away... The beginning of this series was boring for me, but either I got used to it or it really became better... But that's how it is for me! I wanted to drop this series after 3 issues, but now, when I read every single issue of it, I can say that my time was spent and not wasted! And it was spent very well, some of the pictures and stories will definitely pop into my memory every now and then. Rest in peace, Jack. We remember your Eternals and not that awful MCU wannabe. Now I really want to read New Gods he made for DC, but I need some rest from old comics and especially long series...

Eternals Vol. 1

Feb 6, 2022

The beginning was kinda boring for me, but soon enough this series became very interesting! And Kirby's art is awesome, so I think you should read it at least for the art, even if you don't like the story. But I like it! Not as good as the Gaiman's volume, but still nice.

Eternals Vol. 2

Feb 7, 2022

Lol, they used the Hulk for the cover and that says a lot... Kirby didn't want to use other Marvel characters here, but he was forced to and the result is still a good comic, but it has some problems with the logic and the story flow... I think, that the second part of the Kirby's Eternals is better, than the first one, but it's still far from masterpiece. I wish the story would be on the level of his art. And the Eternals Annual is a great example when Kirby makes a decent story. Overall, this TPB has more interesting stories, than the first one. Also it really lacks of a good conclusion. At least some conclusion...

Eternals (1976) Annual #1

Feb 7, 2022

Wow, I thought this double-sized story will be boring, but no! Surprisingly very interesting and solid story! It's better, than most of the issues of this series. This story isn't connected with the main series directly, so you can read it from any point after 11th issue or better after the 14th one. And the art is awesome as well! I don't know how Jack could make such a great big comic between his ongoing Eternals series...

That's just awesome. Why couldn't that movie be like this? There's an actual connection with the Marvel Universe, that we SEE and not just HEAR. And Makkari's powers were just ULTIMATELY shown here. I really miss this kind of superpowers demonstration in movies... In the movie he (She...) is just a generic speedster... It's not interesting at all. But here you really FEEL his power and how cool and complicated it is... You just LIVE through this.

The violence here is kinda pointless, but it's still cool, that comics can show you everything, when movies are all the way so polished and not risky at all. However, it doesn't stop them from being bad and illogical... So, Tiamut is awakening. The epic is coming.

It's not a masterpiece, there are some weak spots and it could be even better, but I still like this run. Gaiman did a great work and Romita's art was awesome as always. I really hate the MCU movie and I wonder why they couldn't make it at least as good as this comic was... They took the story plot from here, but changed it and made it almost 100% unreasonable and stupid...

Fall of the Hulks: Red Hulk #1

Nov 24, 2022

I have a story with this particular comic! My english teacher from school bought it for me in one of his travels or something like that. He kinda liked how I dig into comics, we talked about Marvel many times, so he decided to make me a gift, just like that. He was a cool guy, but maybe too cool for us to be like a real teacher. You know, this stuff about young teachers and how they tend to talk with the students like friends and equals... No discipline in class on their lessons. But let's get back to the comic... Back then I simply couldn't read it in english! I was in 7th or 8th grade. It was waaaay too hard for me. Like, actually really hard! And in addition to that, it's a part of event and I read only issues 1-6 from the Hulk (2008) at that point from that Hulk period of all series, so I really couldn't get anything there, even if I could read it. But still, it was cool to have at least one original US comic book in my collection. And now I could read it with ease! Finally! After all these years... It feels just great, you feel how you grow physically and intellectually... Another gestalt is closed now. So, about this comic... I love how it's connected with the first volume of the Eternals! I'm happy that I read it not that long ago. This comic gives more sense to that Kirby's story, now it's revealed, that this robot Hulk wasn't built by those students. Also good artist! It's weird that he has not that many works in comics.

Fallen Friend: The Death of Ms. Marvel (2023) #1

Jul 13, 2023

It's a bit boring, but it's normal for a mourning comic. However, it's hard to see any real value in it, because the secret post-credit scene already "teases" her resurrection. At least it looks like that. And I mean... man, this is comics. She can't be dead for long. And looks like fans even predicted the way she will be brought back to life. I don't know, overall the comic is okay, but not a masterpiece. I love Kamala's comics and I feel like it could be better. UPD 14 July - she's already announced to be alive and a mutant :)))))))) oh my god, this is soooo soulless... I mean what the fuck? Can't you actually wait at least month... AT LEAST! But no. However, yeah, Kamala will write a comic about Kamala. Isn't it cool?

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America: Wolverine #1

Jul 22, 2023

What the f with all the reds here? That's a good comic. Not much happens here, but it serves its purpose and Leinil's art is spectacular here. I bought the Fallen Son TPB back then and hardly even remember the story, reading it now I feel like I didn't even read it at all, at least the Wolverine's part. I do remember Spider-Man's issue very well though, but this is still a fine comic. I doubt the parts were really connected, maybe only the last one, but what I do love is the fact that Fallen Son is a series of one-shots. One single issue like "Fallen Friend" would be not enough for Cap.

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America: Avengers #1

Jul 22, 2023

Well, I'm not a fan of this Loeb's style to write parallel storylines, but it surprisingly didn't feel bad this time. And the issue is fine, but... I don't know, it feels like they are too high strung. No one was like this when Kamala died, he-he, that tells much. But it's really kinda weird how they act here. It's not a bad comic, but it could be better for me personally. Love the early McGuinness, by the way! And it's cool, that the issues are connected after all.

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America: Spider-Man #1

Jul 22, 2023

Oh how I love this comic! Still my favourite part of this! The art is outstanding and I really love when Rhino is like this - super angry to the point when it gets actually scary. He's often shown as some dumb doofus and even looks funny, but not this time. Finch made an absolutely outstanding job here, Goblin was fine too. My thoughts about the story are a bit complicated, on the other hand... I mean, yeah, Spidey is a jerk here, but he didn't think clear, he's at a very hard moment for him and his spider-sense for some reason triggered him, so he couldn't think like "well, maybe Rhino just here for the same purpose?". By the way, for some reason Rhnio's mother name on the grave is Systevich... David, David... Either way, I also really loved the comparison with Hulk (even though I can't remember the original story, but maybe I just never saw it and it actually exists) and the small detail that you can see Wolverine on a few frames from the very beginning. That's something standard literature can't do - that's a comic privilege. Man, I love comics... Spidey's thoughts and the convo with Logan were pretty solid as well. I don't know, I can't understand the hate this issue gets. Spidey was always flawed, from the very beginning (and even this comic notices this), from his actual first appearance. It's not even the first time he does something before thinking about what and why he does. So I think it was made intentionally to prove a point. And well, it's not like Rhino is some saint. I'm fine with the fact that he was used to blow off some steam, even if I kinda feel for him. Yet he didn't care about other graves and destroyed some of them himself.

This is how you do it. Not like with Miss Marvel. And Cap at least really stayed dead after this for some time. Also good art from Cassaday here! And I don't understand why it's "Iron Man" when THIS issue should be called "Captain America" instead of the third one. But okay, it doesn't matter. It is good.

I remember really enjoying this book back then when I bought. It's almost 10 years since I read it the last time and I really hope it'll be now as good as before. The prologue is good enough. It's simply here to retell the origin of Doom and set up his new magical appearance. Not much happens, but it's only a prologue. I also really enjoy the artwork of Wieringo. SO good...

Fantastic Four: Full Circle (2022) OGN

Sep 12, 2022

Actually, I really love Alex Ross. I thought this can't be anything except a perfect 10. But... I'm dissapointed in a way. First of all, Alex's writing isn't that interesting, as well as this story itself. It's not a necessary sequel to the Fantastic Four #51. After so many years it feels like the Amazing Fantasy #1000 where we saw that Egypt story. Yeah, why not, but it wasn't really required. To be honest, this comic is much longer, than it should be. The middle part is astounding and spectacular in terms of art, but it feels pointless for the story. And the price is OMFG 25 bucks. It really doesn't worth it, just an opinion of mine, you can think like you want to, but I really think it's too much for this. It doesn't feel like a really huge groundbreaking story and something important or that much entertaining. There's even a 100% black page, which may add some cinematographic value to the narrative, but it feels like a waste of space. And yeah, seeing Alex drawing like that is cool, he's a talented artist, but the colors here are very arguable... The style must give you a 60's vibe, but my eyes got really tired of this at the end. Like, really... Too psychedelic for me. And I see some objects (Johnny especially!!!) being colored by Alex himself in his brand style. It makes the overall perception of the visuals feel kinda strange. Like he hadn't much time to finish it. The conclusion leaves a nice heartwarming feeling after all, but... That's it. Intriguing beginning, boring middle part with a brilliant splash-pages and touching finale - that's what I can say about this comic. It doesn't feel like a masterpiece at all. For me, at least. By the way, even the cover is too chaotic and doesn't feel iconic at all. Nah, I'll be the one with a different opinion here, sadly.

7.5
Fantastic Four: The Movie (2005) OGN

Oct 4, 2023

Not a bad adaptation at all! It's long enough to retell the movie without cutting and rushing much. It even has some additional moments, that would make the movie better. For example, Debbie's letter. Also some interaction of Ben and Alicia was cut from the movie, but it is here. The adaptation still lacks the scene where Debbie saw Ben again and left her ring on the ground, but I'm also really glad Sue wasn't naked in the comic. That joke got old in the movie already... Overall, the adaptation is still an adaptation, plus the art is a bit of an average, mostly because of the coloring. But I think it's fine to read if you like the movie.

FCBD 2004: Image Comics Summer Special #1

Oct 7, 2023

Well, I obviously came here for Invincible, but the parts of Spawn and Savage Dragon got me kinda interested in the characters. The Spawn's part was just some recap and I don't even know if the illustrations are new, but it works fine as a bait for new readers. Spawn actually has a pretty interesting origin story. Invincible's part generally wasn't needed for the ongoing and it's just okay, but I guess it lured some new readers in the series. The only part I didn't really like was Witchblade's one. Can't even begin to imagine what Lara Croft did there and what's this all about, but the art was cool. All in all that's a fine free comic and I believe it was a good way to get acquainted with the Image comics of 2004.

FCBD 2007: Marvel Adventures #1

Nov 19, 2021

Well... This one-shot contains two separate stories about Iron Man and the Hulk in the Marvel Adventures universe. So, these stories are short. And that's the reason why there were almost no transitions between the scenes. Some pages were so badly connected, that you think something could be missed... Maybe it is, but I don't think so. It's pretty natural for the short stories. In Iron Man's story he was against the Titanium Man. Nice enemy, but this adaptation is bad. However, it was a surprise, that he's not the same man as in the mainstream universe. I'll rate it as 6. Hulk's story was much simpler. Almost pure action. I think you can read it within a minute or two... Well, there wasn't much sense, but for the short story it's still better. First one needed all 20 pages, but this one fits here. And art is awesome. Let it be 7. So, overall rating for this comic is 6.5. I think it's nice for a free comic. And if you like Marvel Adventures Iron Man, then you can find it a nice addition to the series.

And all the cheap baits of Dan Slott are here: there's a new "Jackpot" character, which is obviously looks like MJ and even says things like MJ. Of course it's not MJ... By the way, this issue throws in your face too many new characters and they are hardly interesting. Yeah, Negative will be interesting later, but... This exact issue is just ok, not bad at least. I also have some mixed feelings about the art. It's mostly great, but on some simple scenes it feels a bit... rough? I don't know...

Actually, for a free comic book it was nice enough and kinda hilarious. Sometimes too silly because of that, but still enjoyable. Mandarin here is much better, than in the second issue of Marvel Adventures Iron Man. And it was one full-size story instead of two separate (like it was in the previous FCBD Marvel Adventures one-shot). I will totally remember how they stopped their fight in the temple and continued fighting outside, because even Mandarin didn't want to destroy one of the 7 wonders of the world...

I came here for Guardians of the Globe, since these 4 pages seem to be unique and not present in the second book. Well... It was meh. Pretty much everything here was meh. Just some short previews you can't begin to care about. Some of these story pieces really look like previews, but maybe they are all original. I'm not that interested to check. Either way, I got really interested only in that story with morgue. Okay, the last one about testimony was weird, but maybe the series is good. Hm... Nah, It-Girl was funny too. It-Girl part definitely looked like a preview, by the way. Okay, maybe it's not that bad, especially considering the fact it was free. But I guess the samples could be longer.

The Hulk part was... okay? As a set-up to the 2021 volume it was definitely not clear enough, but Ottley's art rocks! It doesn't look the way it looked in the Invincible, which is cool, in a way. Back in 2021 I didn't want to read it also partially because of his art, but now he's the major reason I'm doing this, how ironic... The Avengers part on the other hand was just too obscure to care for it. I believe, it would be cool if I actually knew where it comes from and where it leads to, but I don't. Either way, this was free, so what's to complain here? As a teaser made to sell these stories it would definitely not work for me...

It's a compilation of Governor/Tyreese/Michonne specials and back-up Morgan story. Some of them nice, some of them give almost no information.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (2005) #1

Oct 2, 2021

Well, I want to say, that in Russia this story arc was in one series and was published for 6 months. I hate the original idea of splitting it into 3 different series. It makes a lot of mess, I thing, but still gives a possibility to print this story faster. BUT! (And that's a very big but). There are different writers AND ESPECIALLY ARTISTS behind this series. It makes it... Well... It just doesn't feel like a one solid story. More like a jigsaw puzzle, but these parts of the puzzle are made from different material and etc. I hope you understood me, it's very hard to write thoughts like that... Also this story arc closed Marvel Knights Spider-Man vol 1 series and opened this one - Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man. I never read it, so can't say much about it except The Other issues. But I can definitely say something about this exact issue. Well, first, the drawer is awesome. I love Mike Wieringo. He died not much later after this series and this is a colossal loss for the whole comic industry. He certainly is IN my top list. And that's so stupid, that 4 issues of this arc had Pat Lee as a writer... I mean... In comparison Lee's drawings looks even worse... That's a shame... Awesome Mike Wieringo, brilliant Mike Deodato (well, never noticed that they are both Mikes) and that Pat Lee... But it's not about this issue. Here is the flawless art. What about story... Well, it's just a beginning. The Other has 12 issues... They had no reason to rush it. Sometimes I was really pissed about it, because they really should make this arc shorter and cut some events out. But it is a nice issue. We find out, that Morlun is alive and well and he's back to kill Spidey. And also we find out, that his health problems in the latest ASM issues were really bad. And here's the new villain - Tracer. It's so dumb, that he was created only for this story arc. I think, he had a lot of potential, but they just wasted the character and didn't explain much about him... But again, this is not about this issue. Peter David done a decent work. It was a solid beginning for The Other story arc and for the new Spider-Man parallel series!

This issue has some jokes and etc, but it's still so depressing... The conclusion even is too much, I think. There are many other famous heroes involved in this part of a story, so that's cool, but I think it was so pointless... He didn't find a clue about what is wrong with him, he didn't cure it, just found out that eventually he will die... Also, art is decent, I must say that again.

This issue is very... weird. But it's emotional. If they'd made this death permanent, it would be worthy of some tears. However, I think that Morlun's "death" was written badly and that "spider" inside of Peter is kinda lame too. But it reads on a single breath and gives you emotions of different sorts, that's why I want to give it a green rating. Lowest, of course, but still green.

Is it a heroism when you do good things only not to feel yourself guilty? It's kinda what makes Peter a hero since his first appearance. If not for the Ben's death, he would never be Spider-man as we know him. But this comic... It's kinda dumb. The art is cool at least, but the story is really forced to be what it is. I mean, Doctor Doom can't heal dying woman? Reed Richards can't? He actually met the freaking GOD a few years back. A God, who healed his face with a FREAKING ERASER. Couldn't he just give Peter a number or something, ha-ha? That's just stupid, that no one can do anything. That's the Marvel world, where almost every hero died at least once. That's the world where people can heal others with a waving of a hand. And no one can heal DYING (still not dead, and it's important) OLD LADY! I mean, yeah, it's a miracle, that she's still alive after taking a bullet, because at her age it's a "death sentence" already, but I don't believe in this story. However, it's still not that bad, as most people think. It reads fine, interesting and I kinda can understand Peter. I just can't understand what's wrong with this Marvel universe.

Fury (2001) #1

Aug 13, 2023

This is a typical Ennis book (surprisingly even with the artist from The Boys): some cool badass Butcher-type war dog wants another war and wants things to be simple and without all the politics. Man, I wonder if Ennis even was on some war at all, because he's hyper fixed on the war theme. But either way, it reads fine. A bit boring, but it's just a set-up for the story. And it's edgy on the level just right for me. This is the kind of edginess I'm fine with.

It's not for everyone, but it's a typical book of Garth Ennis and if you are his fan - you'll like it 100%. I'm honestly not a fan of the guy, he's often way too much for me, but here it was just right: edgy, but not to the point where you really want to throw up and when you get really tired of this shit. I mean, yeah, some people will want to throw up because of this book already, but believe me, he can do worse things, much worse. Darick Robertson made a good work as the artist here as well. Overall, it's a pretty solid book. Not perfect, sometimes too brutal, but it's something I personally seek in these Marvel MAX titles.

Gamma Flight #1

Aug 16, 2023

Well, this was included in the new Immortal Hulk omni, so maybe it is important... I must admit, it's better, than I expected. Quite interesting and the artstyle is close to the tone of the Immortal Hulk. However, it's funny how sometimes Titania has a male body and some other times she has some sexy poses and female boobs... I guess, the artist just couldn't decide how to portray her... Also it's so amusing, that you can't add an LGBT character without instantly reminding your readers, that this character is LGBT. That sudden "by the way, I'm trans!" from the Immortal Hulk was already enough, but no, Ewing decided "hey, it's a new limited series! maybe not everyone still know McGowan is trans! Let's make a "transphobic" scene to insult McGowan and remind everyone that's a trans!". Funny shit, that's one of the reasons I try to avoid modern comics at all cost.

There's not much in terms of story, it's a lightweight and action-packed reading. Sometimes a bit boring, sometimes stalling (for 19 issues the actual events are too small), but a fun read, I must admit. Mostly. I didn't read much about Ghost Rider and it's not like there IS much to read, it's not Spider-Man and all... I don't think I can recommend Way's run to be your first Ghost Rider comic to read, but if you have a free evening and always wanted to try at least something about Johnny - it's not the worst pick.

Feels kinda pointless. The first story was weird. And how could She-Hulk die because of that stupid reason? Also I don't find Champions even a bit interesting... The second story was nice, but too pointless and weird as well... The reprint of The End is fine, because that's a good story, but it's still a reprint. So I think it's not that good to get green rating, but there's still many cool moments and it won't take much of your time, so why not to read it? P.S. OKay, Incredible Hulk Vol 2 #106 kinda explained, that Jen lost her powers there, but it was after Civil War and Hulk couldn't be on the Earth... What's wrong with the continuity here?

For example, that Wild Sentinel from the Dangerous arc... But still, it's not a really bad thing. I just wish I didn't notice that... The story is a... nah, I can't say it's really a satisfying end to Whedon's X-Men, because Kitty is lost in space. But other than that it was pretty cool and I really didn't expect most of the twists here, so... Good work, I guess. But that's where I stop with Astonishing X-Men. For now, at least.

The second story was rather boring and weird. A typical plot where a movie filming turns out to be just a plan of some evil bad villain. Nah, not my type of stories. But I don't really want to lower the rating much. If the Morbius story was 8 or even 8.5, than the second one is rather 6. P.S. hm... Turns out I didn't imagine it and there really was mentioned the fact, that Morbius is almost weightless because of his hollow bones. But... Why is he 77 kilograms on Marvel Wiki?

Even the death of Cast Iron was something to not care about at all. It's hilarious! Who was that guy? He joined the team and died... He had almost no screen time at all! It's so stupid. Why must I even care? You didn't give me time to love him. And Brit is especially annoying here. Who the fuck cares about Yeti being 12 yo? He's a big freaking Yeti! It's not like snowmen have the same age rules as hoomans... It's like make Mark's brother wait for his 18 years to do something... Idiotic comic. And yet it's definitely not the worst it could be. It's just so-so and that's it. Boring, dull, not cool at all. But I can't really hate it. Maybe I just didn't get it, but I have eyes and I have taste. I definitely can see it's not the same as Invincible. And I would understand if there just was a different tone or something. But it tries to be funny and yet it's just a typical superhero comic, but not even action-packed and good!

After all these previous issues, you might think that this conclusion will be satisfying, that there will be a great battle to death. Huh, no. They just took off the helmet of that super mega villain and won. Good, isn't it? Some quality story you can read here. And Brit for some reason finally got the thing I wrote in my previous review. Amazing. It's funny how these dumb back-up stories are even more fun, than the actual comic. And Monster Girl and Robot are grown-ups now. Cool, isn't it? Maybe I do the math wrong, but... If time flows differently in their dimension and these Flaxans age faster in our dimension... Shouldn't our people age slower in their dimension? If Flaxans age normally there... Why do our people age normally in their dimension? It's just a lazy excuse to grow Monster Girl without a time skip in the main story... I don't like it. Or Robot and MG what... They were there for few decades? Hundreds of years? Can't even begin to imagine how boring it was... Lol, they would definitely already forgot their previous lives... Maybe Robot constructed some device that could make him and MG age normally, but there's nothing about it at all.

Guarding the Globe Vol. 1

Nov 6, 2023

Issues 2 and 3 were okay, they had some stories with the beginning and the end. Mostly satisfying. But other than that it's really boring or plain pointless. I feel like they tried to stretch 3-issue series into this 6-issue one. I wouldn't recommend to read it, feels like a waste of time. There were fine moments, but it has inconsistent writing and artstyle. Most of the scenes were for nothing and didn't lead anywhere. Yet? Maybe. But I don't care. As a separate book it's just so-so.

Actually, the TV show was better for me, but the original comics are still good. I wonder why there's no more solo Hit-Monkey series... He deserves much more, than being a Deadpool meme-character... Maybe Marvel will finally release something in a year or two... But the series were released in the last year and there's still no new Hit-Monkey stories in comics.

Hit-Monkey (2010): One Shot #1

Jan 28, 2022

I'm here after the show. I really liked the TV series and it was very interesting to see his origin in comics. And I was so surprised, when I understood that it's almost 100% the same as in the show. Yeah, they made it kinda better and more detailed in show, but still, that's the first time I see when TV show or movie does this... With this in mind I can say that it's one of the best origins for a character... I couldn't even imagine this background for a character like Hit-Monkey and I thought they made it different for the show. It's just wow, really. That's so bad, that he has almost no solo comics at all...

This book is arguable. Very arguable. I think, this is hard to love it after the first reading. But if you give it another try after a while, when all these Bendis decisions are not bother you anymore, then you will really understand the greatness of it. Art is awesome. Storytelling is awesome. Every part of this story is important and if you read all tie-ins and back-up stories of this event, then you will understand and like it even more. I read not all of them, but all I read really expanded my experience here. This event is important and it is epic, so even if you won't like it - it's still worth your time. Don't be afraid of these mixed ratings. Just read it and decide for yourself.

House Of M: The Day After #1

Nov 30, 2021

This was very boring. And not only because this is a double sized comic, it's just boring and very fickle, I didn't understand many of the scenes here. And almost every page or two the scene is changing. There's also no conclusion at all, so you need to read the next part of the story, but where? There's no label like "to be continued in x-men #nnn..." or something... Just "to be continued", but where? And I'm not that interested to google it. Nah, that's not the best addition to the House of M story. Eighth issue of the original series was much better in showing the consequences...

Howard The Duck (2002) #1

Feb 24, 2024

It's a bit disgusting and overall too weird, since it's Marvel MAX (and Howard is the last character you'd expect to get an R-rated series), but... It's still better, than I expected. And it's only a beginning. I'm glad pretty much everything was already explained here without the unnecessary mysteries. Hm, the issue leaves me wondering what then could be the next 5 issues about. The R-rated content is used pretty moderately here, by the way, mostly for dirty or politically incorrect jokes. Honestly, it's not something I'd expect from Steve Gerber, either. The art is also pretty typical for Marvel Max: dirty and far from being cute in any sense, but I think it's okay.

Howard The Duck Collected

Feb 25, 2024

It had potential to be a really solid Howard the Duck story, but it was too chaotic, jumped from an idea to idea without even giving a chance to explore any of them a bit more. R-rated content was either fine or was here just for the sake of being here. When Steve tried to be edgy enough to justify the comic getting the Max logo, everything was instantly becoming boring and nonsensical. Yeah, yeah, there's a lot of politically incorrect and "clever" jokes, especially actual in 2024 (who would have known), but it just wasn't interesting to read. Some characters disappeared from the story even though it didn't feel like it was already their time to quit it. I really liked only 2 of 6 issues, which is a bad result.

That's a pretty good beginning for the series. I read this book for sooo many times and it's still good. Yeah, it's full of fan-service, but cut Chip some slack - he definitely just tried to demarginalize Howard and make his solo series interesting for all readers. It's a 100% success - super funny and entertaining. It'll be only better in the future issues. Chip understood Howard as a character and gathered a very solid selection of side characters for him to work even better.

Le Beaver cameo was cool, I hope the guy will get some more appearances in Earth-616 in the future. But other than that it's just not great at all. And I consider myself a fan, by the way! Can't imagine what normal people would think about this one-shot... I dunno, for an anniversary comic there could be something... more personal and emotional. Even a typical "remember this remember that" story would work better, than this. Are you a fan of "what if" comics? I'm certainly not. It was always hit or miss, but mostly miss. It's another miss.
