All New X-Men #11 Review

Comic Reviews

I’ll be honest….I loved this issue. Even though Uncanny X-Men #5 already spilled the surprise of Angel defecting over to Cyclops’ mutant revolution team, All-New X-Men #11 was oozing with drama. As I was reading it, it felt like an oversize issue. I kept expecting each page to be the end, but the story kept on going and going.

Jupiter’s Legacy #1 Review

Comic Reviews
Jupiter’s Legacy, co-created by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, has garnered a lot of attention over the last few days. That is understandable, considering the creators attached to it. Jupiter’s Legacy appears to go the Watchmen route of breaking down the superhero archetype. Showing our heroes as flawed individuals and leaving the reader to question their actions.

Does all of this make for a compelling first issue?

Age of Ultron #5 Review

Comic Reviews

*sigh*…….as each issue of Age of Ultron comes out, more and more faults are found in it. My main dislike with this “event” is that it was originally supposed to have happened years ago and was delayed. Now that it is happening, it does not match up with the current Marvel NOW! landscape.

I read interview after interview from the powers-that-be at Marvel that this event currently takes place “now” in the present-day Marvel universe. Examples given are the tie-in issues like Superior Spider-Man #6AU and Fantastic Four #5AU. Sure, these out-of-continuity issues show another side of the Age of Ultron, but the follow-up books from these two series go right back to their regular stories.

Thanos Rising #1 Review

Comic Reviews

If you haven’t noticed, Thanos is a pretty big deal over at Marvel. He appeared in the after-credits scene of the hit movie “The Avengers”, so Marvel has made a point to bring him back to prominence in their comics. It’s their way of grooming the movie audience for his inevitable return in either the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie or sequel to “The Avengers”.

Thanos was the main villain in Brian Michael Bendis’ Avengers Assemble opening arc, and now his origin is being retold by Jason Aaron in Thanos Rising, a five-issue limited series with art by Simone Bianchi.
