All-New X-Men #3 Review

Comic Reviews

I can’t express how much I am enjoying All-New X-Men. Each issue has included a new development, whether it’s finding out about Beast’s new mutation, to the original X-Men being plucked from the past, and the newest revelation in issue three regarding the “Phoenix Five”. Issue one showcased the X-Men dealing with the repercussions of Avengers vs. X-Men, issue two dealt with the original X-Men coming to the present, and issue three deals with Cyclops and his mutant revolution.

Thunderbolts #1 Review

Comic Reviews

Thunderbolts have undergone many roster changes over their many years of existence. They’ve been villains pretending to be heroes, actual heroes, back to villains, heroes, villains, etc etc. With Marvel NOW! being a jumping on point for new readers, it makes sense for Thunderbolts to once again transform.

X-Men Legacy #2 Review

Comic Reviews

X-Men Legacy #2 is an improvement over issue one. I at least understood what the hell was going on in issue two. Legion’s multiple personalities have broken free, and they are fighting for control of his body. Is Legion strong enough to keep his personalities at bay, or will he succumb to the chaos in his mind?

The Marvel NOW! flagship title is back with issue two. We’re still inching closer to the team being fully formed.

Thor: God of Thunder #2 Review

Comic Reviews

Thor continues his battle against The God Butcher across the timestream. This issue mainly features young Viking Thor’s first encounter with this killer of the Gods. This allows us our first clear view of The God Butcher. Young Viking Thor is brash and headstrong, not too different from present-day Thor. Instead of wielding his trust hammer Mjolnir, Thor carries a battle axe named Jarnbjorn.

A+X #2 Review

Comic Reviews

I may be too hard on A+X. I keep saying that I do not see a purpose for this book to exist, except to be an easy money grab off of the Avengers vs. X-Men event. But perhaps I am putting too much thought into it. As the recap page suggests, I should turn my brain off and not worry where these stories take place in continuity. The A+X stories are meant to be standalone adventures starring an Avenger and an X-Man. Easy enough for readers to pick up and read no matter what the numbering is. After I reread A+X #2 with this in mind, it became more enjoyable.

BOOM! Studios' Supurbia #1 Review

Comic Reviews

It’s always nice to catch a comic right when it’s debuting a number one issue. Even though there have been other volumes of the comic book Supurbia,  it is returning with a brand new series. I am not familiar with its other iterations, so I am coming in with eyes wide open.

Amazing Spider-Man #698 Review

Comic Reviews

WOW! That was my initial reaction after reading the final pages. Marvel announced that Amazing Spider-Man #698 was an important lead-in to issue 700 and boy were they correct. As the heading above states, this will be a spoiler-free review as far as discussing the surprise. After #698 is released, I may do a follow-up post with my thoughts on what is going on. But for now, let’s get into our review shall we?
