The Avengers #6 Review: Not All it Could be But Still a Joyous Read

The Avengers #6 Review: Not All it Could be But Still a Joyous Read

The Horde is boring, and that puts a damper on the comic.That said, the camaraderie, the lineup, and the broad strokes of the conflict do a lot for the book and keep it in the realm of good.[caption id="attachment_907420" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Avengers #6 art by Ed McGuinness, Paco Medina, Juan Vlasco, Mark Morales, and David[...]

Avengers #4 Review: Seeking Help from the Eternals

Avengers #4 Review: Seeking Help from the Eternals

It shares some of the problems which plague Justice League in that the scope and amount of ideas being thrown at the reader can be a little overwhelming, and it seems likely that that this too will be a lengthy story arc.It’s still entertaining though, and there are plenty of good moments such as Carol[...]

Avengers #3 Review: Good, but Slightly Less Good

Plus, the team is just a great lineup.[caption id="attachment_871265" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Avengers #3 art by Paco Medina, Juan Vlasco, and David Curiel[/caption]Paco Medina and Ed McGuinness split the art in this comic, and it has made me realize how similar their art styles are However, I can’t say that I love the art in this[...]

Comic Book Wins and Losses Week of March 14th 2018: Infidel Explodes Onto the Scene

Comic Book Wins and Losses, Week of March 14th, 2018: Infidel Explodes Onto the Scene

While it was nice seeing the Jolly Green Giant, the plot of this book is an impenetrable mess of characters, plot lines, and unanswered questions. Joe Bennett and Paco Medina's artwork gives the comic something worthwhile, but this book was massive letdown.[caption id="attachment_811024" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Action Comics #999 cover by Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund, and Andrew Dalhouse[/caption]Win: Superman: Action[...]

Avengers #684 Review: The Hulk Returns to a Complete Mess

Avengers #684 Review: The Hulk Returns to a Complete Mess

It is nice seeing the Jade Giant cut loose in Paco Medina’s fantastic art styling It is still badly truncated, leaving Lightning’s last big stand against the Hulk feeling far from epic Of course, the big smash-down between Hulk and General Maverick’s Red Hulk/Iron Hulk (which has already been cover-spoiled) is saved for next issue.[caption[...]

Secret Empire #10 Review: A Better Ending Than This Series Earned

Secret Empire #10 Review: A Better Ending Than This Series Earned

What’s worse is the fact that they got a lot of really talented artists: McNiven, Rod Reis, David Marquez, Paco Medina, Jesus Arburtov, Juan Vlasco, and Ron Lim They deserve more than to be scattered like buckshot all over a comic in the hopes that the extra names will mean that people will like it[...]
