review 1: The only justification I have for my three stars is the artwork; and the basic trajectory. Why don't comic book writers and publishers ever seem to have a grip on editing. The poorly-thought-out structure and delivery really impedes the enjoyment of a relatively brief story. Take...

review 1: The “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie is a hit. At a reported $94 million, the newest movie from Marvel Studios has the largest August opening in history. It is not hard to see why with a mix of funny, likable characters with explosive action and a plot that’s exciting the film has...

review 1: I got this because I thought it was going to be like Tank Girl, but I ended up barely being able to get through it. If you belong to generation social justice warrior, you'll probably really like this book. If you don't, I don't expect you'll find too much to like here. I can't b...

review 1: The teenaged original X-Men travel through time to confront their screwed up, disillusioned middle-aged selves. It's a clever concept, but not one that I think can sustain an entire multi-arc series. As executed here, it mostly just shows how much the different writers have lost...

review 1: When Brian Michael Bendis first began writing the “Avengers” in 2004 his first act was to completely disassemble the team. The status quo that had built up over the previous five decades was removed from the picture. But in that act Bendis was able to get back to the core of what...

review 1: I reread Volume 1 right before reading this because it has been a while since I checked out Miles Morales' storyline. I forgot how young he is. Only 13 years old. That's crazy. It is fun watching Miles as he is slowly growing into a hero. He has a hero’s heart, but he is sti...
