New Avengers #23

Review: New Avengers #23

Although I could care less about warning you, spoilers will be below. The problem with comic books, mainly superhero ones, is that the stories are always stuck in a perpetual second-act. There is no beginning, nor is there an end. [...]

Review: East of West #11

Here’s a review of East of West #11, done again in the bullet-point format. I’ve decided I’ll be adopting this format as it’s a way to better get thoughts and observations out: I had a theory that the world of [...]

Review: New Avengers #13

Spoiler free! “Inhumanity” by all accounts, should be (and is) a disaster. It’s the changing of the status quo (for the worst). It’s turning the Inhumans into the X-Men of all things. And that really doesn’t work in any noticeable [...]

Review: Infinity #6

Review: Secret #3

Secret #3 is different from Hickman’s other works. It inherently contradicts the nature of just about every other comic he’s published. How does it do this? It’s small scale. Whereas The Manhattan Projects, Avengers, New Avengers, and East of West [...]
