Hunt for Wolverine: Claws of a Killer #2 cover by Greg Land and Jason Keith
My only hope is that the next issue will make for a more interesting tale. Hunt for Wolverine: Claws of a Killer #2 art by Butch Guice, Cam Smith, Mack Chater, and Dan Brown Butch Guice is a saving grace His art is as gritty, detailed, and all-around gorgeous as ever His heavier style fits this band[...]
Hunt for Wolverine: Claws of a Killer #1 cover by Greg Land, Jay Leisten, and Frank D'Armata
Their teeth-baring is entertaining and watching Victor and Daken threaten to rip one another's heads off is great. The weird plot with the small town and mysterious paramilitary agents comes to a bit of a trite conclusion in the end, but it may still make for a fun threat for our leading villains to put down. Hunt[...]
Relay #1 cover by Andy Clarke
Dan Brown handles the color work here, but the review copy I read only had the first two pages colored The colored pages I saw looked great though. Relay #1 is an interesting and fresh sci-fi comic with plenty of unique ideas that could set up for a great series The protagonist is especially intriguing, and[...]
Wong and the Midnight Sons make their final stand against the hordes of Hell and the demonically-possessed Avengers. Before long, Mephisto himself arrives to gloat over having killed Johnny Blaze. However, Mephisto does not know that the Ghost Rider has become the king of Hell, and the tides may soon turn in favor of Wong. Doctor Strange: Damnation ends better than it began. While some of the deliberate lack of repentance on the part of Stephen Strange and the lack of focus on the members of the Midnight Sons that aren’t Wong and Strange does bother me, this final installment didn’t really get on my nerves as much as the first. Don’t get me wrong, this issue still has a myriad of problems that keep it from being required reading. This story was stretched to breaking point, and a good portion of what matters happened in the Ghost Rider issue. This book is a protracted third act. As far as plot-relevance goes, Blade, Doctor Voodoo, Bloodstone, Man-Thing, Scarlet Spider, Moon Knight, and Iron Fist may as well not be here. Even in their own tie-ins, Iron Fist and Scarlet Spider don’t really do anything important to the story. The follow-up story promises more with the Midnight Sons though, and that will hopefully come to something. Rod Reis’ artwork is a welcome presence in this book. His style lends itself to the ethereal and surreal nature of this setting and plot. The color gradience adds a unique atmosphere and generally looks quite good. Szymon Kudranski and Dan Brown handle the epilogue with the Midnight Sons and Doc Strange. The more realistic aesthetic does contrast Reis’ work in an odd manner, but it looks good too. Doctor Strange: Damnation #4 is a decent enough read. If you liked the rest of the story, you’ll like this one too. The fact that the story at least acknowledges that Strange’s idea was terrible from the start and ties it to personal problems helps a lot. Reis, Kudranksi, and Brown provide good visuals. Feel free to check it out.

Doctor Strange: Damnation #3 cover by Rod Reis
The opening giving us some insight into Wong's mind while staging this rescue gives some emotional resonance to the story. Doctor Strange: Damnation #3 art by Szymon Kudranski and Dan Brown Szymon Kudranski's artwork is ethereal and atmospheric, which is fitting for Damnation It's also light on finder detail, and that becomes distracting whenever the panel focuses[...]
