Strange Academy #7 Review

Although pitched to most readers as “Hogwarts for Marvel” Skottie Young shows us why Strange Academy could never be like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. Simply put, Dr. Strange is no Professor Dumbledore. And to my knowledge Skottie Young is not transphobic. Continue reading Strange Academy #7 Review

Strange Academy #6 Review

It’s quite depressing knowing that when I read a book called Strange Academy, I learn nothing about the Academy itself, I don’t get to see how possible future heroes actually learn the Mystic Arts, nor do I get to see the bonding of friendships that usually occur when a group of children go to the same school. Strange Academy is just not the right title, but I guess “Random kids I’m forcing you to learn about know magic” just doesn’t have any profitability. Continue reading Strange Academy #6 Review

Fantastic Four Road Trip #1 Review

Written by: Christopher Cantwell Art by: Filipe Andrade Colors by: Chris O’Halloran Letters by: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 12/2/2020 Price: $4.99 I’m not sure if Christopher Cantwell got the memo, but Halloween is two months too late. This random over priced one-shot, disguised as a could be mini series, that should have been a “What IF” story is one big waste of time. Cantwell … Continue reading Fantastic Four Road Trip #1 Review

Fantastic Four #26 Review

Written by: Dan Slott Art by: R.B. Silva Colors by: Jesus Aburtov Letters by: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 11/18/2020 Price: $3.99 NON SPOILER PORTION: Dan Slott knows exactly how to crash land the hype of a prior issue. Starting off with characters that have nothing to do with the main plot, and using this anticipated issue as a “Oh I forgot about those characters, … Continue reading Fantastic Four #26 Review

Strange Academy #5 Review

Written by: Skottie Young Art by: Humberto Ramos Colors by: Edgar Delgado Letters by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Release Date: 11/11/20 Price: $3.99 This title is mildly frustrating for the soul fact that we have a group of quirky amazing individuals who are suppose to be attending a magical academy to learn about all things magic, and all of that is in between the panels. The … Continue reading Strange Academy #5 Review

Iron Man #3 Review

Written by: Christopher Cantwell Art by: Cafu Colors by: Frank D’Armata Letters by: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 11/11/20 Price: $3.99 Christopher Cantwell’s approach at Tony Stark’s God complex confuses me as a reader of Marvel, and I’m unsure at this point if it’s truly the fault of Cantwell or the idiotic concept of who Tony believes himself to be. Tony sees himself as a … Continue reading Iron Man #3 Review

John Walker U.S.Agent #1 Review

Written by Christopher Priest Art by Georges Jeanty & Karl Story Colors by Matt Milla Letters by VC’s Joe Sabino Release Date: 11/4/20 Price $3.99 Christopher Priest attempts to create a “D-bag” persona within John Walker the US Agent, and in turn creates an incoherent and racist story that is full of nonsense. From the stereotypical dumb “hillbilles” to the sound of Walker’s shield, this … Continue reading John Walker U.S.Agent #1 Review

Strange Academy #4 Review

Writer: Scottie Young Artist: Humberto Ramos Colorist: Edgar Delgado Letterer: VC’s Clayton Cowles Release Date: 10/28/2020 Price: $3.99 Is this “Strange Academy” or “Strange irrelevant events”? Comic shops pitched this title as the “Harry Potter of current Marvel Comics”, and “Think X Academy but with all of your magic heroes.” This title has hit a lull after it’s second issue and although Scottie Young has … Continue reading Strange Academy #4 Review

Fantastic Four #25 Review

Writer: Dan Slott Artist(s): R.B. Silva, Paco Medina, & Will Robson Colorist(s): Jesus Aburtov, Marcio Menyz Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 10/21/2020 Price: $5.99 ***SPOILERS*** (THIS ISSUE IS WAY TOO BIG TO AVOID TALKING ABOUT BIGGER PLOT POINTS) Dan Slott, when given the page count, can shine through and through. Was there a McGuffin in this story? Yes, but everything else that surrounded that … Continue reading Fantastic Four #25 Review

Falcon & Winter Soldier #4 Review

Writer: Derek Landy Artist: Federico Vicentini Colorist: Matt Milla Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 10/21/2020 Price: $3.99 With an odd three weeks between releases, it’s very clear that issue three should have been the last for this series. Derek Landy’s horrible dialogue and inability to give character development in four issues ruined the potential for a great success before Falcon and the Winter Soldier … Continue reading Falcon & Winter Soldier #4 Review

Iron Man #2 Review

Writer: Christopher Cantwell Artist: Cafu Colorist: Frank D’Armata Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 10/21/2020 Price: $3.99 I have heard nothing but great things about Christopher Cantwell. I just can’t wrap my head around those comments when he has done nothing for this Iron Man title. It is only two issues in, but nothing has happened other than Tony Stark being injured in a great … Continue reading Iron Man #2 Review

Fantastic Four #24 Review

Writer: Dan Slott Artist: Paco Medina Colorist: Jesus Aburtov Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 9/30/2020 Price: $3.99 Now that Empyre is over we can get back to some great Fantastic Four content, maybe after this issue? Dan Slott has been wanting to tell the story of Iceman being a temporary member of the Fantastic Four in some time. Even teasing it all the way … Continue reading Fantastic Four #24 Review

The same spot he’s always been. … Continue reading Iron Man #1 Review

Fantastic Four #23 Review

Writer: Dan Slott Artist: Paco Medina Colors: Jesus Aburtov Letters: VC’s Joe Caramagna Release Date: 9/2/2020 Price: $3.99 *SPOILERS FOR ISSUE 23* The importance of Jo-Venn and N’Kalla as the Kree Chronicle of Blood and Skrull Requiem of Souls was played out to be so much more than what Dan Slott used them for. Children that held literal history of each species in body and … Continue reading Fantastic Four #23 Review

Empyre: The Avengers #2 Review

Empyre: The Avengers #2 Review – Internal conflict is this month’s villain and who’s to say we didn’t see this coming? Constantly being reminded of the Kree/Skrull feud that has been around for many many years, the steady use of the phrase “temporary alliance” was only a matter of time before the Kree and Skrull were back at each other’s throat. Check out the Empyre: The Avengers #2 Review HERE! Continue reading Empyre: The Avengers #2 Review
