Alien #4 Review

Alien #4 finds the Steel Team moving from one bad situation to a much worse situation when the Scavenger’s betrayal takes a heavy toll, and one Scavenger pays a terrible price for snooping. Is It Good? Alien #4 moves the plot from what was a fairly straightforward take on Aliens (1986) into a straightforward take on Alien: Resurrection (1997). Nothing good comes from human/Xenomorph hybrids. Nothing! When last we … Continue reading Alien #4 Review

Amazing Spider-Man #15 Review

Amazing Spider-Man #15 finds Spidey helping the innocent while he searches for answers when Hell (technically, Limbo) is unleashed in NYC. Is It Good? Amazing Spider-Man #15 is odd. Not odd as in “Whoa!

Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #2 sets Cho and his young companion on a quest to find the true Worldbreaker, Banner, and stop the Grand Priestess’s evil plans. Is It Good?
