A creature on the cover of Behold, Behemoth.

Behold, Behemoth #1 Review

Written by: Tate Brombal Illustrated by: Nick Robles Lettering by: Andworld Design Editing by: Ramiro Portnoy, Eric Harburn Maybe you’ve heard, I really like Boom! Studios and the books they put out. They do some franchise adaptations, but they’re better known and celebrated for the original comics they put out. Think […]

A werewolf tears out of its clothes.

The large cast of Batman Incorporated.

Batman Incorporated #1 Review

Written by: Ed Brisson Art by: John Timms Coloring by: Rex Lokus Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Editing by: Ben Abernathy Batman Incorporated has a history of putting the spotlight on characters who wouldn’t normally get the time of day. Grant Morrison’s New 52 run with the title made me a fan […]

Tim Drake Robin takes down a criminal.

Tim Drake: Robin #1 Review

Written by: Meghan Fitzmartin Art by: Riley Rossmo Coloring by: Lee Loughridge Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Editing by: Jessica Berbey, Arianna Turturro, Ben Abernathy I have a strange relationship with Tim Drake. I never liked him as Robin, he just never interested me when he wore the Robin mantle. But, I […]

Wolverine and Jubilee are side by side on the cover of X-Terminators.

X-Terminators #1 Review

Written by: Leah Williams Art by: Carlos Gomez Coloring by: Bryan Valenza Lettering by: VC’s Travis Lanham Editing by: Lauren Amaro, Jordan D. White X-Terminators has barely any scenes with my favorite superhero of all time, and yet it feels absolutely perfect. It’s one part raunchy comedy and another part grindhouse […]

Magik Stands in the middle of the Midnight Suns, Kushala, Wolverine, and Blade.

Midnight Suns #1 Review

Written by: Ethan Sacks Art by: Luigi Zagaria Coloring by: Antonio Fabela Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino Editing by: Tom Groneman, Nick Lowe While it’s obvious this book was supposed to come out with the game, it does not base its story around the same premise. It spins out of Strange […]

The Flash runs through a shattered multiverse on the cover of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Daniel Sampere Coloring by: Alejandro Sanchez Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Editing by: Chris Rosa, Paul Kaminski This is the first issue of this event with the name change. Changing it to Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths is a cash-in, but hardly the worst one. If […]

The new Thunderbolts sit together on a construction beam.

Thunderbolts #1 Review

Written by: Jim Zub Art by: Sean Izaakse Coloring by: Java Tartaglia Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino Editing by: Martin Biro, Annalise Bissa, Tom Brevoort There’s something to be said about how Marvel will give so many B, C, and D-list heroes their own books. Thunderbolts #1 is chockful of characters […]

Batman on the cover of Ram V's Detective Comics.

Detective Comics #1063 Review

Written by: Ram V Art by: Rafael Albuquerque Coloring by: Dave Stewart Lettering by: Ariana Maher Editing by: Arianna Turturro, Jessica Chen, Ben Abernathy Ram V is one of my favorite writers in comic books right now after his work on These Savage Shores. Rafael Albuquerque is an all-star artist who […]

Emma Frost riding a giant Eternal.

A.X.E. Death to the Mutants #1 Review

Written by: Kieron Gillen Art by: Guiu Vilanova Coloring by: Dijjo Lima Lettering by: VC’s Travis Lanham Editing by: Martin Biro, Annalise Bissa, Tom Brevoort It’s always nice to see that a crossover is more of a team-up than a battle between heroes. The covers may say one thing, but the […]

The Justice League of DCeased: War of the Undead Gods attack Darkseid.

DCeased: War of the Undead Gods #1 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor Penciling by: Trevor Hairsine Inking by: Andy Lanning Coloring by: Rain Beredo Lettering by: Saida Temofonte Editing by: Ben Abernathy DCeased: War of the Undead Gods picks up right where the last DCeased book left off. Some of our lost heroes are back, reunited with their loved […]

DC Mech has Batman and Superman in redesigned suits getting ready to square up.

DC Mech #1 Review

Written by: Kenny Porter Art by: Baldemar Rivas Coloring by: Mike Spicer Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Edited by: Dave Wielgos, Ben Abernathy You can tell that the creative team loves mecha-anime, especially the art half of the team, Rivas and Spicer. They expertly capture the size and movement of mechs and […]

Jean Grey on an alternate cover of A.X.E. Judgment Day.

AXE Judgment Day #1 Review

Written by: Kieron Gillen Art by: Valerio Schiti Coloring by: Marte Garcia Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Editing by: Martin Biro, Annalise Bissa, Tom Brevoort I haven’t read a Marvel event in a while that wasn’t strictly about the X-Men.

Wolverine at the Hellfire Gala

The Hellfire Gala 2022 #1 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Kris Anka, Russell Dauterman, Matteo Lolli, CF Villa Coloring by: Rain Beredo, Frank Martin, Matt Willa, Matthew Wilson Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit Design by: Tom Muller, Jay Bowen Editing by: Lauren Amaro, Jordan D.

Jane Foster & the Might Thor flying through space.

Jane Foster & the Mighty Thor #2 Review

Written by: Torunn Gronbekk Art by: Michael Dowling Coloring by: Jesus Aburtov Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino Editing by: Michelle Marchese, Wil Moss I didn’t get the chance to review the first issue of Jane Foster & the Mighty Thor, so I wasn’t going to miss the second issue. It’s obvious […]

Robin is a giant Batman's Batsymbol on the cover of Batman #125.

Batman #125 Review

Written by: Chip Zdarsky Art by: Jorge Jimenez Coloring by: Tomeu Morey Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Editing by: Dave Wielgosz, Ben Abernathy Chip Zdarksy’s Daredevil has been the highlight of Marvel comics for the last two years, even over the majority of X-Books. Having him write the main Bat-title feels like […]

Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are getting married on the cover of Batman/Catwoman #12.

Batman/Catwoman #12 Review

Written by: Tom King Art by: Clay Mann Coloring by: Tomeu Morey Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Editing by: Brittany Holsherr, Jillian Grant, Chris Conroy The finale to Batman/Catwoman has been long in the making. It was over a year ago that this series first started, aiming to serve as the true […]

Black Adam up close in the rain.

Black Adam #1 Review

Written by: Christopher Priest Art by: Rafa Sandoval Coloring by: Matt Herms Lettering by: Willie Schubert Editing by: Chris Rosa, Paul Kaminski Christopher Priest is a writer who knows how to make the reader uncomfortable. Reading his run on Deathstroke often felt like swimming through mud, but that didn’t change how […]

On the cover of X-Men #12 stand Polaris, Jean grey, Synch, and Cyclops.

X-Men #12 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Pepe Larraz Coloring by: Marte Gracia Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Editing by: Tom Muller, Jay Bowen X-Men #12 feels like the end of a run before a relaunch. It culminates at the end of this X-Men roster and the biggest upset to the status […]

Lona Steelrose holds the belt on the cover of Do a Powerbomb!

Do a Powerbomb #1 Review

Written by: Daniel Warren Johnson Art by: Daniel Warren Johnson Coloring by: Mike Spicer Lettering by: Rus Wooton There aren’t many art styles like Daniel Warren Johnson’s, and there aren’t many stories like Daniel Warren Johnson’s. When you get a comic that’s written and drawn by the same person, there’s always […]

Spider-Man carries Jones from Fortnite in Fornite x Marvel: Zero War.

Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 Review

Written by: Christos Gage, Donald Mustard Penciling by: Sergio Davila Inking by: Sean Parsons Coloring by: Edgar Delgado Lettering by: VC’s Joe Caramagna Editing by: Kaitlyn Lindtvedt, Alanna Smith, I just want to say, it’s wild that this comic claims that Fortnite’s universe is the place where “every reality ever” comes […]

Poison Ivy cleans her mouth after eating dinner.

Poison Ivy #1 Review

Written by: G. Willow Wilson Art by: Marcio Takara Coloring by: Arif Prianto Lettering by: Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou Editing by: Jessica Berby, Arianna Turturro, Ben Abernathy DC is constantly trying to push Poison Ivy in a new direction different from the last. This is no different. Like many who have written Poison […]

the cast of Legion of X, Mister Nemesis, Pixie, Nightcrawler, ForgetMeNot, Juggernaut, and Blindfold.

Legion of X #1 Review

Written by: Si Spurrier Art by: Jan Bazaldua Coloring by: Federico Blee Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Editing by: Anita Okoye, Sarah Brunstad Legion of X follows up one of the best arcs in this era of X-Men with the Onslaught Revelation. That means I’ve had high hopes for it. So […]

Duo #1 Review

Written by: Greg Pak Pencilinig by: Khoi Pham Inking by: Scott Hanna Coloring by: Chris Sotomayor Lettering by: Janice Chiang Editing by: Andrea Shea, Jim Chadwick You would be forgiven for thinking this was a new superhero. I made this mistake, not realizing that Duo is actually an old Milestone hero. […]

Jack in the Green on the cover of Fables #151.

Fables #151 Review

Written by: Bill Willingham Penciling by: Mark Buckingham Inking by: Steve Leialoha Coloring by: Lee Loughridge Lettering by: Todd Klein Editing by: Mark Doyle Fables is my all time favorite comic series. I nearly read the whole thing back in high school and may go back and reread it for a […]

Written by: Steve Orlando, Nyla Rose Penciling by: David Cutler Inking by: Jose Marzan Jr, Roberto Poggi Coloring by: Irma Kniivila Lettering by: VC’s Travis Lanham John Proudstar was before my time. By the time I was born, he was long dead in the universe and out. The magical thing about […]

The new DC Trinity on the cover of Dark Crisis #0.

Dark Crisis #0 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Jim Cheung Coloring by: Jay David Ramos Lettering by: Tom Napolitano For Free Comic Book Day my local comic shop had Dark Crisis #0 to give me, and was kind enough to give me this copy early. I believe digital versions have been available, but […]

Captain Britain riding a pegasus.

Knights of X #1 Review

Written by: Tini Howard Art by: Bob Quinn Coloring by: Erick Arciniega Lettering by: VC’s Ariana Maher Excalibur was one of my favorites of Dawn of X, and I’m glad it’s getting a continuation. It already had arguably the best roster among the X-teams, and Knights of X continues that legacy. […]

DC characters like Robin, Green Lantern, Jon Kent Superboy, and Black Adam are saying goodbye to the Justice League after their deaths.

Death of the Justice League Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Rafa Sandoval Inking by: Jordi Tarragona Coloring by: Matt Herms Lettering by: Josh Reed Will the Death of the Justice League, a collection of some of the best superheroes to grace comics, open room for new superheroes to step up? Yes. Will it lead to […]

The new Marauders descend in Marauders #1, Aurora, Psylocke, Bishop, Tempo, Somnus, and Kitty Pryde.

Marauders #1 Review

Written by: Steve Orlando Art by: Eleonora Carlini Coloring by: Matt Milla Lettering by: VC’s Ariana Maher Marauders #1 is the only one of the original Dawn of X titles outside of the main X-Men title to completely reboot. They have a new #1, a new creative team, and new roster […]

Storm before the backdrop of Arakko, the setting of X-Men Red.

X-Men Red #1 Review

Written by: Al Ewing Art by: Stefano Caselli Coloring by: Federico Blee Lettering by: VC’s Ariana Maher I spent the whole day waiting to read X-Men Red, checking Twitter. What I found on Twitter were people ranting and raving about how good this issue was. They weren’t kidding. X-Men Red positions […]

The roster of Immortal X-Men gather around for an ode to the last supper.

Immortal X-Men #1 Review

Written by: Kieron Gillen Art by: Lucas Werneck Coloring by: David Curiel Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles The Immortal X-Men is about to be a classic in the making. This comic feels like the original X-Men #1 by Jonathan Hickman. The events of this issue feel momentous, they feel important, and […]

Vampire Nightwing is the alternate cover for DC vs Vampires #6.

DC Vs Vampires #6 Review

Written by: James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg Art by: Otto Schmidt, Simone Di Meo, Daniele Di Nicuolo, Rex Lokus Coloring by: Otto Schmidt, Simone Di Meo, Daniele Di Nicuolo, Rex Lokus Lettering by: Tom Napolitano This is it, this is the vampire book I didn’t know I’ve always wanted. DC vs […]

Gus from We Have Demons on the cover.

We Have Demons #1 Review

Written by: Scott Snyder Penciling by: Greg Capullo Inking by: Jonathan Glapion Coloring by: Dave McCaig Lettering by: Tom Napolitano So this first issue collects the first three chapters of We Have Demons #1. For that reason, I can’t quite give my opinion on how it reads one chapter at a […]

Wolverine walks through the Krakoan gates in X Deaths of Wolverine #5.

X Deaths of Wolverine #5 Review

Written by: Benjamin Percy Art by: Federico Vicentini Coloring by: Dijjo Lima Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit X Lives of Wolverine #5 ended the time-traveling Wolverine story, but X Deaths of Wolverine #5 ends the event. This whole series was released and formatted to invoke House of X and Powers of […]

Batman/Superman: World's Finest high-fiving.

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #1 Review

Written by: Mark Waid Art by: Dan Mora Coloring by: Tamra Bonvillain Lettering by: Aditya Bidikar Batman/Superman: World’s Finest is interesting for several reasons. This marks the return of Mark Waid, a historic writer in the comic industry, especially at DC for one-off stories like Kingdom Come, and award-worthy runs like […]

Omega Red fights Wolverine on the cover of X Lives of Wolverine #5.

X Lives of Wolverine #5 Review

Written by: Benjamin Percy Art by: Joshua Cassara Coloring by: Frank Martin Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit X Lives of Wolverine #5, the final part of the “Lives” half of this event is the best of the five issues. Wolverine is a lot like Batman in that he’s overexposed, with more […]

Captain Carter throws her shield at the reader with Agent Braddock right behind her.

Captain Carter #1 Review

Written by: James McKelvie Art by: Marika Cresta Coloring by: Erick Arciniega Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles I’ve never been a big Captain America fan. Any superhero who purposely ties themselves to a country rather than fans doing that themselves (a la Superman) generally rub me the wrong way. No country […]

Wonder Woman stands with Nubia on her left and Yara Flor on her right on the cover of Trial of the Amazons.

Trial of the Amazons #1 Review

Written by: Stephanie Williams, Vita Ayala, Joelle Jones, Michael W. Conrad, Becky Cloonan Art by: Laura Braga, Skylar Patridge, Joelle Jones, Elena Casagrande Coloring by: Romulo Fajardo Jr., Jordie Bellaire Lettering by: Pat Brosseau Trial of the Amazons is the first big Wonder Woman-centric event since 2007’s Amazon’s Attack! Sorry for […]

On the cover of Justice League Incarnate #5, Darkseid towers over a possessed Justice League Incarnate, which includes Captain Carrot, Avery Flash, Doctor Multiverse, President Superman, Flashpoint Batman, and Mary Marvel.

Justice League Incarnate #5 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson, Dennis Culver Art by: Andrei Bressan, Jesus Merino Coloring by: Hi-fi Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Okay, I’m a huge Darkseid fan, but I have to admit, I did not know he had a wife. I also gotta admit, I don’t like the idea of Darkseid having human […]

Emma Frost and Elektra got toe-to-toe on the variant cover of Devil's Reign: X-Men #2.

Devil’s Reign: X-Men #2 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Phil Noto Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles I didn’t review the first issue of Devil’s Reign: X-Men, so I do want to say that while it was enjoyable, it felt low energy for the stakes it had. This issue is far better and balances the […]

Batman is in the foreground with Riddler, Catwoman, Killer Croc, and the Penguin behind him in the background on the cover of Batman: Killing Time.

Batman: Killing Time #1 Review

Written by: Tom King Art by: David Marquez Coloring by: Alejandro Sanchez Lettering by: Clayton Cowles I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Tom King books usually go one of two ways. Some of his books are written better for trade, and then there are books you can’t help […]

Dark Ages #5 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor Art by: Iban Coello Coloring by: Brian Reber Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino I have to say one thing before anything else. Miles Morales in Dark Ages #5 has the same hairstyle as me, so he’s officially the best-looking dude around. Jokes aside, as much as I […]

Red X stabbing an apple in Teen Titans Academy.

Teen Titans Academy #12 Review

Written by: Tim Sheridan Art by: Tom Derenick Coloring by: Alex Sinclair Lettering by: Rob Leigh I’ve been a pretty big fan of this series, especially the yearbook issue. I like the idea of having new heroes actively learning from characters like the Titans. In the beginning, this series had a […]

The main character of Dreamlands: Lives & Epics stands before a portal.

DREAMLANDS: Lives and Epics #1 Review

Created by: LoudMouse Crew – Stelios Pliatsikas, Thanos Kyratzis Disclaimer: The creators of DREAMLANDS: Lives and Epics did contact me to consider reading and reviewing it. They provided me a free link to the comic, but there was no other monetary payment or agreement that I’d review this book positively. I […]
