Review: Three #2

Three #2 is the most excited I’ve been about a series since the debut of Zero earlier this year. Now I know that’s not saying much considering Zero was only started two-three months ago, but this just shows the kind [...]

Review: Young Avengers #11

Change is one of the biggest buzzwords in comics, and “changing the status quo” is an even bigger buzz-phrase. The comics community is not as accepting of change as say, a music fan is of a band’s sound. The music [...]
