review 1: Pretty disappointing series so far. The first issue of this series was pretty killer, and a refreshing experience after Shadowland, but this series hasn't really gone anywhere interesting. This book finally wraps up the Omega Drive storyline. The conclusion was fairly interesting...

review 1: I'm really enjoying the backstory and the way how it's doled out in flashbacks and storytelling, slice by slice. I'm still not 100% sold on why the Plutonian went berserk/turned evil, but I'm sure there's still more to it that we don't know yet. A fascinating look into a hero t...

review 1: We pick up Volume 8 with Plutonian back on Earth with a new crew of baddies, after having escaped the prison he was in and stranded Qubit in time and space. We also catch up with the surviving members of the Paradigm, some of whom we weren't sure of the status of at all...Surviv...

review 1: I'm giving this book five stars for one reason. The chapter where Daredevil goes to the city of the Molemen is absolute genius. I love how they have been telling the story of a non-visual character through a visual medium, but this book truly shines when that character descends i...

review 1: Just as awesome as volume one, but the art here is definitely lackluster. I was really disappointed in the artist change and hope they switch back to the old one. The story in this volume picks up where the last one left off, but now Jailbait has gone missing. I know it's bad tha...

review 1: The potential good news is the Plutonian's sidekick appears to be OK. The bad news is the sidekick isn't really, since the Plutonian's greatest enemy, Luthor to his Superman, is possessing the body. Volume 4 goes from there, showing the Paradigm's escape from military custody, ...

review 1: At this point in my life, with all of the comic books I've read and experienced along the way, I would have presumed it impossible for any series to be so strong 21-issues in. I realize that doesn't seem like such a large number, but it's huge these days where a new book will com...

review 1: This whole end of the run focuses on a supervillain group known as the Sons of the Serpent, and I'm mystified why Waid decided to spend all this time on a bunch of hack villains who I've never heard of.Little heavy-handed on the anti-racism touches, aren't we Mark? I get being in...

review 1: This could have easily been 4 or 5 stars. The plot itself is actually cool, and all the narrative beats are there. But for a standalone piece, I can only wonder what (other than having to draw more pages) kept it from being so rushed and therefore short.Peter Parker discovers he ...

review 1: This is certainly not a stand alone story. It's very much an extension of the previous volume.The plot starts with Kaidan, and develops her power into something even more incredible. It seems there may be no real limit to her powers (barring the inability to tell a story).The ent...

review 1: With the new Daredevil Netflix series coming up, I found myself coming to the stunning realization that I didn't know all that much about Matt Murdock. Sure, I had seen the not-so-great Ben Afleck movie, but as I comic book reader I had never picked up a Daredevil title, and had ...

review 1: In “Irredeemable,” the Plutonian, the world’s greatest hero, snaps after a lifetime of trying to help humanity. Irredeemable Vol. 1, collecting issues 1-4, sets up the fall of the Plutonian with a bang, as he tracks down his former ally the Hornet. Drawn by Peter Krause (“Power...

review 1: I do not think that artist Leinel Francis Yu is a a very good storyteller, though he does create some striking images, and that hurts the quality of this graphic collection. I liked the first three stories in spite of this because of the fresh take on an old character supplied by...

review 1: So far, I'm feeling like this series is a lot like Joe Hill's Locke and Key - not in the subject matter, but in the general outline. Due to the action of demons, a group of otherwise likeable characters is pushed to the limit, revealing monstrous flaws. Despite them, they still...

review 1: I gotta say, the first 'issue' in this trade was fantastic. A blind man caught in a snow-storm -- the danger felt more real than seeing DD take on the Hand or Bullseye. I felt the same way reading Hawkeye caught in Super Storm Sandy. The Spider-man and Black Cat story arc was fun...

review 1: I remember thinking that this book didn't know what it wanted to be. A one-shot story about what go wrong when children are on a school bus in the middle of winter, a love triangle with Spider-Man and Black Cat, and a face-off with the mole man. All three of the stories were pret...

review 1: This is the second collect volume in Mark Waid's highly critically (and fan) praised run on Daredevil. He is being lauded as bringing the fun back into Daredevil and I applauded him for that in volume one. In volume two...not so much. We still get some stories with good entertain...

review 1: As this title transitions from an introduction of its premise to actively engaging its characters, there's going to be some good and some bad. Banner's assistants are given little to nothing of importance to do other than to be scene dressing. One of the female scientists disease...

review 1: This book doesn't really carry the Irredeemable saga forward much, but it does fill in a lot of the blanks from the early days. I'm not thrilled at the linking of Plutonian and Max Damage on some deeper mythic level, but their respective stories and setups are interesting, just ...

review 1: The volume following the conclusion of a multi-volume arc is usually always a bit crap mostly for the absence of, and comparison to, a strong overarching narrative. But, while Daredevil Volume 6 is made up of one/two issue standalone stories, it’s a pretty decent collection.Matt ...

review 1: A neat take on a stubborn question about superheroics - namely, why do we assume that just because you have a lot of power that means that you're psychologically able to deal with it? Rather than be a story about a man who is powerful and decides it's more fun to rule the world, ...
