Astonishing X-Men #14 cover by Greg Land and Frank D'Armata
Maybe that's where this is headed, but the constant sniping and bad jokes make this book hard to enjoy. Astonishing X-Men #14 art by Greg Land, Jay Leisten, and Frank D'Armata The Greg Land art doesn't help either It adds to this overall sense of artifice and insincerity when this book really needs something to make the[...]
Astonishing X-Men #13 cover by Greg Land and Frank D'Armata
This has become part and parcel of a new X-Men book, and it's becoming stale very quickly. Astonishing X-Men #13 art by Greg Land, Jay Leisten, and Frank D'Armata Greg Land's artwork isn't that bad in this issue It's not great; I'm not sure it's even good However, there were fewer awkward mismatched panels and repeated faces[...]
Avengers #2 cover by Ed McGuinness,Mark Morales, and David Curiel
It's very obvious. Avengers #2 art by Ed McGuinness, Mark Morales, Jay Leisten, and David Curiel Ed McGuinness has more than a few good panels in this issue, especially the one pictured above containing the Big Three assembling to fight the Final Host His cartoonish and exaggerated style works well for the more upbeat and comical tone[...]
X-Men Wedding Special #1 cover by J. Scott Campbell
Jay Leisten and Jason Keith are unfortunately unable to salvage the visuals That said, there are some decent moments and lines that keep this section from being outright bad. The final story is my choice of the three, and it's solid I wouldn't call it great, but the premise of all the X-Ladies going to a[...]

A Beautiful Garbage Fire – Secret Empire #1 Review
One hopes that it will be the case, but perhaps it would have been handy to have some sort of suggestion of this in this issue instead of having a Romani woman joining up with a group that employs the use of internment camps. Moving aside for a moment…the art by Steve McNiven, Jay Leisten and[...]
A Good But Tame Start: Weapon X #1 Review
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Cover by Greg Land, Jay Leisten and Frank D'Armata Continuing the ResurrXion X-Men relaunch, we have Weapon X from Greg Pak, Greg Land, Jay Leisten and Frank D'Armata I'm generally not overall a fan of the darker, 'team of killers' X-books, but there have been some exceptions I feel this may be one of them. Pak's[...]
The Past Is Prologue: X-Men Gold #1 Review
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Cover Art by Ardian Syaf, Jay Leisten & Laura Martin Last week may have been the primer, but this week the ResurrXion truly begins ResurrXion is definitely an apt title, given this issues preoccupation about old being new again, and not to mention what seems to be several literal character resurrections in the issue (possibly). But[...]
