“Web of Black Widow” #2

By | Oct 11, 2019 | Reviews

The Marvel Universe is positively overflowing with superheroes. There’s something for everybody, a superhero for everybody. We all have our favorites. I like Black Panther, you might prefer Thor.

“Absolute Carnage: Immortal Hulk” #1

By | Oct 4, 2019 | Reviews

There’s a lot to appreciate about Al Ewing’s work but something that I like in particular is that the guy writes a great tie-in comic. Sometimes in a tie-in, an ongoing story established in previous issues will be completely derailed for the crossover’s sake. Sometimes, they are completely forgettable and add nothing to the story.

“Copra” #1

By | Oct 3, 2019 | Reviews

While trying to be two things at once – the continuation of several volumes that precede it, and a jumping on point for new readers – “Copra” #1 falls short on its narrative, being compensate by creative and innovative art.
