Captain America #702 Review: The Story Improves on the Previous Issue

Captain America #702 Review: The Story Improves on the Previous Issue

It doesn’t add anything of note to the book, but it does give Rod Reis an excuse to draw a brief sequence of WWII Cap material.The ending of the comic adds a nice twist, and there is an appealing quality to a story that treats Captain America as an inspiring legend instead of an active[...]

Cap's Betrayal Begins: Secret Empire #0 Review

Ignoring the controversy surrounding the series, this issue is actually a damn good comic.The art by Daniel Acuña and Rod Reis is fantastic, for the most part There are a couple of panels where Steve's face is steeped in shadow, but the shadowing is so blocky it looks a little out of place with the[...]
