Moon Knight #198 cover by Becky Cloonan
I can't say I was expecting the opening scene to be Marc fighting and eating a rabid dolphin over a span of days. Max Bemis has mastered a balance of uncomfortable and awkward humor cast against pitch-black themes, which is among the most suiting ways to write Moon Knight I've ever seen, on part with excellent[...]
X-Men: Blue #34 cover by R.B. Silva and Rain Beredo
Needless to say, I look forward to Magneto's future in X-Men titles. The future version of the X-Men doesn't imply much about the team beyond the possibility of them sticking around outside of their own time. X-Men Blue #34 art by Marcus To and Matt Milla Marcus To once again provides great artwork to this book[...]
X-Men: Blue #33 cover by R.B. Silva and Rain Beredo
That said, this book seems to be all-but abandoning its headlining team. X-Men: Blue #33 art by Marcus To and Matt Milla Marcus To provides excellent artwork to this comic He captures the quiet rage and sorrow of Erik excellently, and, as I said already, the new costume looks amazing The design on the future X-Men: Blue[...]
X-Men Blue #32 cover by R.B. Silva and Rain Beredo
Also, there's a random moment where Cyclops thinks Beast is dead that serves no purpose other than the briefest of shocks and raised stakes that immediately dissipates when Erik somehow instinctively knows that Hank isn't dead. X-Men Blue #32 art by Andres Genolet and Matt Milla Andres Genolet's work has its ups and downs There are scenes[...]
Daredevil #605 cover by Chris Sprouse and Marte Gracia
That's the only part of the comic that doesn't quite click. Daredevil #605 art by Mike Henderson and Matt Milla Mike Henderson and Matt Milla deliver another great-looking issue, with Henderson's more stylized and semi-cartoonish work fitting the over-the-top nature of the story The big action scene in front of city hall is given a lot of[...]
X-Men Blue #31 cover by R.B. Silva and Rain Beredo
Plus, he now feels abandoned by his team and like he has nothing left to lose. X-Men Blue #31 art by Jorge Molina and Matt Milla Jorge Molina does excellent work here There are many great scenes of Magneto busting into rooms and floating menacingly Molina knows how to construct an imposing Master of Magnetism and devastating[...]
X-Men: Gold #31 cover by Phil Noto
It is intended to show what a certain character is seeing, but you can't help but wonder why this vision is so extensive and what some of it actually adds to the story. X-Men Gold #31 art by Pere Perez, Jay David Ramos, and Matt Milla Pere Perez's artwork is solid, giving something of a classic feel[...]
X-Men: Blue #30 cover by R.B. Silva and Rain Beredo
The pseudo-sibling rivalry between Daken and Jimmy is interesting, especially given the bizarre and extenuating circumstances under which it exists. X-Men Blue #30 art by Nathan Stockman and Matt Milla The artwork is something else that doesn't gel that well in the comic The fight scenes look decent enough, but the facial detailing is often off-putting[...]
Daredevil #604 cover by Chris Sprouse and Marte Gracia
The ending twist adds an interesting yet not unexpected monkey wrench into the proceedings too. Daredevil #604 art by Mike Henderson and Matt Milla Mike Henderson doesn't disappoint with the art in this installment The cartoonish hyperbolic style bears the ridiculousness of the plot twist well, and it still gives a lot of visual personality to Matt,[...]
Daredevil #603 cover by Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, and Marte Gracia
This is the cocky mayor Matt Murdock we are dealing with here, Blindspot's role still seems mysterious and mercurial, and Foggy is still one lovable beleaguered support character. Daredevil #603 art by Mike Henderson and Matt Milla Mike Henderson adds a lot of visual personality to the comic too His style makes for cool action beats, creepy[...]
Daredevil #602 cover by Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, and Marte Gracia
He's so amazing, and Matt can be so dumb. Daredevil #602 art by Mike Henderson and Matt Milla Mike Henderson proves skilled at depicting cocky Matt Murdock His style focuses on exaggerated facial expressions and infuses a bit of cartoonish comic book fun into the visual identity of the book The few action scenes look excellent too[...]
Spider-Man #240 cover by David Marquez and Justin Ponsor
The finale involves Ganke and is downright heartwarming, and it has art from Sara Pichelli and Justin Ponsor (with help from Matt Milla and Pete Pantazis)—which means its visually gorgeous too. Spider-Man #240 art by Oscar Bazaldua and Laura Martin Oscar Bazaldua and Laura Martin handle the art in every other page, and the book looks great[...]
Daredevil #601 cover by Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, and Jordie Bellaire
The comic just works. Daredevil #601 art by Mike Henderson and Matt Milla Another thing that works very well in this comic is the art of Mike Henderson He brings another stylized aesthetic to the book, but it still gives the noir-esque vibe that is often used for DD It's not quite as gritty as Ron Garney's[...]
X-Men Blue #24 cover by Jorge Molina
Molina, Matt Milla and Jay David Ramos do a damn good job of bringing the battle to life. The parallel stories of Polaris battling the Rakshak team and Jimmy, Bloodstorm, and Briar building a new X-Men team is fairly enjoyable. Even the dialogue gels better than in prior issues of X-Men: Blue There's only one real groaner[...]
