X-23 #3 cover by Mike Choi and Jesus Aburtov
Mariko Tamaki still writes a compelling X-23, and Juann Cabal's artwork is gorgeous. X-23 #3 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard The chase scene owes much of its intensity to the art of Cabal He is very skilled at depicting action sequences, and the comic derides much of its overall quality from that fact His clean[...]
X-23 #2 cover by Mike Choi and Jesus Aburtov
Also, Jonathan is amazing, but he needs to get back to talking with Rocket Raccoon's speech device. Mariko Tamaki is already on the way to surpassing the brilliance of All-New Wolverine, and I hope the book keeps down this path. X-23 #2 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard Juann Cabal, who worked many issues of All-New Wolverine,[...]
Darth Vader Annual #2 Review: A Brutal Prequel to Rogue One
This is not an Annual that overstays its welcome. Darth Vader Annual #2 art by Leonard Kirk, Walden Wong, Scott Hanna, and Nolan Woodard Leonard Kirk is the artist on this comic, and he brings a sleekness and expression to the comic that does the story justice There are moments where Vader looks counterintuitively cartoonish, and it[...]
Star Wars: Thrawn #6 cover by Paul Renaud
It said what needed saying, and little more than that. Star Wars: Thrawn #6 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Luke Ross' work holds steady though this conclusion, giving Thrawn that same unnerving and otherworldly look that has been present in prior issues The detailing is immaculate, and the shading adds a lot to the atmosphere[...]
X-23 #1 cover by Mike Choi
Plus, Logan is technically back, so that would explain it in part. X-23 #1 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard Juann Cabal did some great work on All-New Wolverine with Laura and Gabby already, and he continues that streak here There is a pragmatism in the style that keeps the page from being too messy while[...]
Star Wars: Thrawn #5 Cover by Paul Renaud
That's fun in its own way. Star Wars: Thrawn #5 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Luke Ross continues to show his artistic prowess with a well-detailed and generally appealing art style Shading is played with to give many scenes a foreboding aesthetic, and Thrawn himself continues to be striking and intimidating Nolan Woodard's color art[...]
All-New Wolverine #35 cover by David Lopez
That's a relatively small complaint, but it did stick out. All-New Wolverine #35 art by Ramon Rosanas and Nolan Woodard Ramon Rosanas's artwork succeeds in crafting a finale that looks as good as it reads The photorealistic yet simple style looks great, and it has a softness to it that fits the more upbeat and emotionally-driven nature of[...]
Star Wars: Thrawn #4 cover by Paul Renaud
I am aware that they may have been included in one of Timothy Zahn's novels, but it could have made for a good final few pages instead of cliff-hanging for the next issue. Star Wars: Thrawn #4 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Luke Ross doesn't disappoint in this installment His detailed 3-D art style captures the[...]
Star Wars: Thrawn #3 cover by Paul Renaud
You don't realize how far she's gone until the meeting with Tarkin in the last few pages of the book. Star Wars: Thrawn #3 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Luke Ross's artwork is gorgeous and renders this world in impeccable detail Each character is easy to distinguish, even the all green-garbed and old white Imperial politicians[...]
All-New Wolverine #33 cover by David Lopez
Kamala Khan is the president of the United States, which is amazing on its own. All-New Wolverine #33 art by Ramon Rosanas and Nolan Woodard Ramon Rosanas's artwork is appealing and fluid in this comic His style is clean and focuses on the details we need, and that allows for the important parts to stand out[...]
Star Wars: Thrawn #2 cover by Paul Renaud
He is a great lead. Star Wars: Thrawn #2 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Luke Ross's artwork is still of a highly detailed and pseudo-realistic style, and it looks great for it It errs towards less detailing and cartoonish at a longer draw distance, but it doesn't look incongruous Nolan Woodard's color art is the right[...]
All-New Wolverine #32 cover by David Lopez
This is just a really good comic. All-New Wolverine #32 art by Djibril Morissette-Phan and Nolan Woodard Morissette-Phan's artwork can play to both the darker moments and the more fun ones There is a shadowy grimness in the first part that can play up the intentional ridiculousness in the final portion Like the writing, the comic knows[...]
X-23 cover july 2018
But we're still sad to see it go. Don't think of it as losing an All-New Wolverine, however! Instead, think of it as gaining an X-23! In July, Laura Kinney is getting both a name change and a new #1 issue as Mariko Tamaki, Jaunn Cabal, and Nolan Woodard launch X-23 #1. "I am so psyched to[...]
All-New Wolverine #31 cover by David Lopez
To its benefit, the utter ludicrous fun of the remainder of the comic more than cover up any failings in its one serious moment. All-New Wolverine #31 art by Marco Failla and Nolan Woodard Marco Failla's artwork brings the kind of fun, expressiveness, and kinetic energy a story like this needs There's also a simplicity to the[...]

Star Wars: Thrawn #1 cover by Paul Renaud
That's a simplistic answer for what is always a complex problem, but it is at least something. Star Wars: Thrawn #1 art by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodard Ross and Woodard's artwork is stellar The world is highly detailed and brightly colored Thrawn himself is given an otherworldly texturing that makes him stand out even more in[...]
X-Men: Bland Design – A New Status Quo Emerges in X-Men Gold #21
and Nolan Woodard We were pretty hard on the previous issue of X-Men Gold, which saw Kitty propose to Peter in a moment that should have been highly emotional, but fell flat due to the generally poor, storyboard-like pacing of this series But it's a new story arc, so let's try to keep an open mind. This[...]
All-New Wolverine #30 cover by Dan Mora and Romulo Fajardo Jr.
It does give the kind of people the Orphans are meant to represent a little too much benefit of the doubt though. All-New Wolverine #30 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard Juann Cabal's artwork continues work very well for All-New Wolverine His work is detailed and generally visually appealing He also draws Laura very buff, which[...]

All-New Wolverine #29 Cover by Elizabeth Torque
It's just another contrivance that characters can contrive their way around. All-New Wolverine #29 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard All this aside, All-New Wolverine #29 is at least a fun read It's great watching Wolverine, Gabby (aka Honey Badger), and Daken tear into Hand ninjas, and Juann Cabal puts together a nice sequence wherein we[...]

wolverine
The facial expressions are the best part, and partnered with colors by Nolan Woodard, the characters and scenes really come to life The whole comic is a great pickup, and if you're new to Marvel, this is an excellent place to start. This post was brought to you in part by Third Eye Comics, Maryland's premier[...]
Generation X
The colours by Felipe Sobreiro and Nolan Woodard have worked well with the art, occasionally doing a lot of the work of building depth to the page, however even this isn't kept up throughout, and sometimes layers are left flat. This Generation X does do a pretty good job of approximating the tone of the original,[...]
The Human Side of a Conflict Inhuman – All New X-Men #17 Review
The colours by Nolan Woodard give everything a nice finish, and all do an excellent job of creating a new iconic gay kiss for comics too in one splash page. Overall, it's a really good book, which serves to do a lot to give some breathing room, depth and new layers to the relationship of Bobby[...]
Improbable Previews: Bleeding Cool Spoils Civil War 2 #8 In All-New X-Men #17
We can't guarantee 100% accuracy- in fact, our accuracy may be much lower than that – but we can guarantee that it's better than looking at a bunch of unfinished pages. In this issue of Improbable Previews, we've got some unlettered preview pages from All-New X-Men #17, by Dennis Hopeless, Mark Bagley, Andrew Hennessy, and Nolan Woodard,[...]
