Secret Empire #5 Review – Just Not Good Super Hero Fiction

Andrea Sorrentino was a fantastic artist to choose for this story His surrealist style adds to the unnerving reality and how it all just feels so wrong.This should have been a graphic novel set in an alternate universe so these queasy feelings don’t come back for us some day I mean hell, this actually does[...]
