The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act (2014)
language
English
4.22 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Gillen and McKelvie reunite for the new creator owned book, The Wicked + The Divine. The result is the strongest collaboration between the two yet, harvesting the best ideas from Phonogram, and creating a new, endlessly exciting universe. The Faust Act lays the groundwork for an ...

review 1: Though I long ago accepted The Marvel Asgardians as an entirely separate entity from the Norse Aesir and try to check my degree in mythology at the comic book store door, this story had me cringing over all of the wrong. Also, tone down the Christianity a bit there, guys. Not eve...

review 1: This volume definitely improves on the last; while I enjoyed the first volume, it naturally suffers from the problems that most first volumes have, which is throwing a bunch of stuff at you so that the story gets started. This one, on the other hand, is a bit more leisurely, and ...

review 1: I liked this little exchange:Prodigy: You save the world, Loki.Loki: From myself.Prodigy: You know, of all the things I learned with you guys? Saving the world from yourself is the first, most necessary step.So true.McKelvie had 4 brilliant pages during the final battle, includin...

review 1: Not bad. I read the first two volumes of the previous Young Avengers series and generally like the team. This really shouldn't be Volume 1 though. Or, at the very least, a summary of previous storylines relevant to this volume and maybe capsule bios of the cast would have been...

review 1: Every 90 years, twelve gods are reincarnated. Once they come into their powers, they have two years to live, to influence, to be gods. The current incarnation are making the rounds as pop stars, eating and breathing devotion from their fans from the stage. It isn't all rainbow...

English

review 1: I'm not really sure what the author/artist are going for at this point. I still love the art and I adored what they did in Young Avengers together, but the plot of this is all jumbled up and unclear. Maybe it will be an epic reveal at the end, but if I didn't already like these t...

review 1: The aftermath of A vs. X. We see Wolverine back in his role as a headmaster of the Jean Grey School and Scott is now a criminal held prisoner. The best thing about this book for me was the role reversal of these two men. Wolverine has often been characterized as a bad boy and nev...

review 1: I liked this one a lot more than the first instalment. Which is not to say that I didn't enjoy Rue Britannia but it felt more like a prequel, which established the lore and setting that the characters in The Singles Club get to inhabit. This is a well told story, which each chapt...

review 1: I absolutely loved the second issue in this. Laura’s character was fleshed out a little more, which I enjoyed reading, and the other gods got name dropped. Luci (Lucifer) inducted Laura as her personal minion, and sent Laura on a task to one of the gods, The Morrigan, but that ...
Iron Man, Vol. 2: The Secret Origin of Tony Stark, Book 1 (2013)
language
English
3.42 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I think this book is a good read for Marvel fanatics and this is because Tony Stark's early life wasn't (in my knowledge) ever described. They divulge the secrets of Tony's parents and the secrets of his (twice) savior, 451. The theme in this book was hard to find, but I thi...

review 1: I hope you are ready to read a lot about me along with this review, because that is what you are going to get. I was first exposed to the X-Men via the early 90's cartoon on Fox. I immediately fell in love with that show, and have been a huge fan of the team ever since. Or, at le...

review 1: The story seemed a bit disjointed at times (particularly the end), but overall, I really enjoyed this collection. I'll definitely have to check out more of the Journey into Mystery series and possibly the New Mutants, as well. I've just started getting into some of the modern X-M...

review 1: Todos los cómics que he leído de Marvel Now me han gustado mucho, o casi todos.De este volumen puedo decir que de verdad todo me agradó... Me encantan todos los personajes pero mis favoritos son Billy y Teddy.Algo que me gusta de estos cómics es que hay una relación homosexual, y...

review 1: Iron Man has, outside the movies, never been a favorite of mine. For reasons I can't explain, I've never really gotten much out of the character. Onscreen, Robert Downey Jr. has turned Tony Stark into a charming wiseguy who seems almost too lazy to really get much done while al...

review 1: The xmen go on a rescue mission to an enclosed habitat that has evolved over 60 million years in minutes. They then have to fight various baddies from a prison break. This is a decent plot but the first story kind of assumes that you've read uncanny xforce, indeed Magneto knew mo...

review 1: Jumpy and disjointed, but with the core of a good story. The art is phenomenal and was what originally drew me to this in the first place - but it lacked backstory from the characters. I also love the diversity represented in this group... but almost felt like it was a little obv...

review 1: This series just gets better and better! I was blown away by the first volume but this one took it to the max. The art is consistently crisp and engaging, continuing to play with the construct of the comic. The story continues on from the first volume but pulls in some new charac...

review 1: Gillen and Pacheco start the post-Schism Uncanny X-Men off well. The mission statement is laid out - show strength while saving lives. There's plenty of strong characterization for most of the characters, showing a nice range of personalities. There's a lot of tension on the team...

review 1: Here's the deal: If you're going to put out a comic book about Tony Stark being somehow connected to an alien race and little grey martians owning most of Vegas, better have Kieron Gillen write it. This is NOT my kind of comic book except that it features Iron Man. These days I p...

review 1: Solid IM story, and Greg Land's art is always great, but I'm still in the camp of Granov when it comes to new armor designs. This is a good transitional story, something of a re-boot, and supplies another impetus to spur Tony to the next thing (space) while establishing Pepper in...

review 1: Is it just me, or does Iron Man really only work in a team setting? Seriously, I like him in the Avengers, and it's fun to read him in New Avengers, but he just doesn't have what it takes to fly solo. Tony Stark has an extreme personality, and you need people to bounce that off o...

review 1: Ultimate fangirl Laura and her “journalist” friend Cassandra’s search for the killer of a judge leads them to Baal, a Kanye West clone, who swears he didn’t do it. Speaking for the group of gods, Ananke refuses to help Luci out of prison and that’s when Luci decides not to take t...

review 1: I really enjoyed getting these different perspectives on the Avengers vs. X-men event, especially from those unable to make it too the big battle on the moon but must wait for the outcome together. Mr. Sinister is always fun too, love the way he speaks. Land's art was his usual...

review 1: Compared the the classic "Phoenix Force" stories, this one doesn't have the mystery, tension, or slow build that makes them truly effective. On the other hand, having this outsized Pheonix incarnation split among several heroes is a clever twist, and Gillen does interesting thing...

review 1: Everything is revealed, everything is explained...I enjoyed this. Lots of action, I liked the art, and I'm happy with the resolution. It's not my favourite thing that Gillen has written, and out of the three volumes I preferred the first one, but it was still good and pretty smar...
