Auto Draft
Even the colour palette from Matthew Wilson has changed, dropping the muted tones in favour of the bolder blues and purples A light switch has been flicked It's a nifty little Asgardian trick And of course, there is no way they will get away with that going forward. How very Starship Troopers There will be blood,[...]

"Knock on Wood," but Jason Aaron Thinks War of the Realms Will Come Out on Time
But if he can be part of a creative team which puts a super-mega-crossover event out on schedule without requiring fill-in artists, he, along with Dauterman and Russell Wilson, will surely change Marvel history forever.   War of the Realms #1 hits stores on April 3rd. War of the Realms #1 (W) Jason Aaron (A) Russell Dauterman (CA) Arthur Adams,[...]
X-Men: Golld #30 cover by Phil Noto
It's still sweet, but the other payoff hasn't been built up as well—that is if you've only been reading X-Men: Gold and not, say, an X-Men-starring miniseries. X-Men: Gold #30 art by David Marquez and Matthew Wilson David Marquez and Matthew Wilson make this book gorgeous This artistic dynamic duo makes every panel a frigging masterpiece[...]
X-Men: Gold #29 cover by Phil Noto
Kitty and Piotr have some cute moments, Iceman gets to be a badass, Storm is Storm and awesome, and Gambit garners a couple of laughs. X-Men: Gold #29 art by Geraldo Borges and Arif Prianto Artist Geraldo Borges and color artist Arif Prianto handle the bulk of the art in the book, with David Marquez and Matthew[...]
X-Men Gold #28 cover by Phil Noto
David Marquez and Matthew Wilson make for a stunning flashback sequence with Kitty and Colossus which leads into Bandini and Prianto organically. X-Men Gold #28 is an issue that doesn't get a lot done for the plot, but it gets by on charm, solid dialogue, and great artwork from the team Despite showing the stretchmarks of[...]
The Wicked + The Divine #36 cover by Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson
Matthew Wilson's color art once more impresses with its wild but balanced palette. The Wicked + The Divine #36 feels like it's trying quite hard to be cute It tries to be what I assume is experimental, but it doesn't click and feels like a waste of an issue as a result The art holds up[...]
X-Men: Gold #27 cover by Phil Noto
Matthew Wilson does the same with the flashback sequence, bringing a lighter and almost pastel palette which adds to the cheer of the scene. X-Men: Gold #27 is a solid installment to this series with a fun and well-paced story and solid artwork The relation to the "Wedding of the Century" is tangential at best, but[...]
Captain America #701 cover by Michael Cho
Matthew Wilson, Paul Mounts, and Hughes cove the color art, and that looks quite good too. Captain America #701 is a lengthy setup for an underwhelming finale While the book isn't quite bad, it comes dangerously close to becoming dull, and that's the worst thing a story can do The artists turn in great work, and[...]
Thor #706 cover by Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson
The Odinson's complete breakdown upon Jane's death adds some emotional heft. Thor #706 art by Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson As always, Russel Dauterman's artwork is downright gorgeous, and the depiction of Valhalla and the afterlife is beautiful The creativity of the paneling looks good Matthew Wilson's color work is bright, wild, and stunning. The Mighty Thor #706[...]

The Mighty Thor #705 cover by Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson
This just leaves Thor and Mangog to have it out one last time. The Mighty Thor #705 cover by Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson This issue brings the thunderous finale to the Mangog battle, and it is a well-constructed climax to "The Death of the Mighty Thor." It balances the emotional tones well The battle is both[...]
Wicked + Divine #34 cover by Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson
In the present, Persephone and Cassandra are still trapped in the cage with Woden's beheaded son. The Wicked + The Divine #34 cover by Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson The Wicked + The Divine #34 struggles a little in the plot advancement department, with much of the story consisting of Persephone/Laura and Cassandra figuring out things, whether[...]
Captain America #699 cover by Chris Samnee and Matthew Wilson
Elsewhere, the Things slaves away to keep power on in Babbington's tower. Captain America #699 cover by Chris Samnee and Matthew Wilson No, the Hulk and the Thing don't get to fight in this one I'm sad too. However, this issue does continue to show how well Mark Waid and Chris Samnee understand Steve Rogers, how he thinks,[...]

Captain America #698 cover by Chris Samnee and Matthew Wilson
However, this issue weaves the explanation into the narrative and you only get one real exposition dump, and it's short. Captain America #698 art by Chris Samnee and Matthew Wilson Chris Samnee's continues to be well-tailored to the title and its lead Despite the fairly cartoon-oriented style, he plays with shading well, giving the visuals a lot[...]
The Wicked + the Divine
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] The Wicked + The Divine #33 from Image Comics by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matthew Wilson, Clayton Cowles, and Dee Cunniffe is going to be a tough one to review without spoilers, but I'm going to try. What I will say is that this issue is a game changer And damned if I don't admit[...]

Marvel Legacy
However, I can't argue the individual talents involved. The color art by Matthew Wilson does its best to keep a cohesive atmosphere with paler shades to evoke the idea of a new dawn It's really admirable work, and it does keep the story together for the most part. So, Marvel Legacy #1 is, unfortunately, mediocre overall[...]
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] The Wicked + The Divine #31 is a game changer. This issue has the next big events that really change the direction for the series, and it brings some shockers, believe you me. The Wicked + The Divine #31 cover by Jamie McKelvie, Matthew Wilson and Clayton Cowles What's especially wonderful here is these shockers are delivered[...]
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] The Wicked + The Divine #29 marks the series return and start of what series creators Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson refer to as Imperial Phase II Gillen has repeated used the metaphor of a double album, with this second part being that second album that vastly accelerates the story.

But I like Becky Cloonan's work, and I am a particular fan of the work of Kris Anka, so I decided to give this one a shot. And amazingly, I quite liked this issue. Art by Kris Anka and Matthew Wilson As I mentioned, this issue is relatively bloodless There's a few brutal action sequences that are frenetic[...]
