Doctor Strange #386 Review: Damnation Continues to Disappoint

We are shown the prelude to Doctor Strange's Las Vegas arrival in Damnation, and we view the immediate aftermath. In that aftermath, Strange plays cards against Mephisto for the fate of Las Vegas.

Infamous Iron Man #11 Review: I Saw Mommy Kissing Mr. Fantastic

Okay, I'll admit it: this one is a little too Bendis. I was pretty interested in Infamous Iron Man when it was first announced. I love a good villain book, and Victor Von Doom is perfect to host his own title. Doom taking up the mantle of Iron Man was a bit odd, but I could see […]
