COMIC REVIEWS!

SPOILERS

After a long and very delayed road, Civil War II has come to an end. I wish I could tell you that the Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez event bucks the trend of lame final issues for Marvel events, but unfortunately that is not the case. In fact, Civil War II’s final issue ranks as not only one of the worst final issues of a Marvel event, but also one of the worst comics of the year. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Civil War II: Kingpin and Justice League Rebirth!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

Already there are tons (some might say too many) Civil War II tie-ins, and while a lot of them have been okay to bad, Civil War II: Kingpin sounded like it could be one of the better ones. With We Can Never Go Home co-writer Matthew Rosenberg writing, at the very least it would be interesting to see him take on one of Marvel’s biggest bad guys. And for the most part, it is really good, even if Kingpin has some flaws that hold it back from the being awesome. Read the rest of this entry

I know what you’re thinking: “didn’t you already review Civil War II?” And I did. But that was the ZERO issue of Marvel’s new mega event, and that issue barely got things into motion.

COMIC REVIEWS!!!!

The first shots are fired in Civil War II #0, a comic that, quite frankly, is a bit of a bore. Much of Brian Michael Bendis and Olivier Coipel’s introductory issue serves more as an extended prologue than a rousing event starter, and it seems at times that it’s more interested in rushing to get the parts into motion for Civil War II rather than letting them happen naturally. For starting off a major Marvel summer event, that’s not good Read the rest of this entry

Civil War: Round Two?

civil-photo-01873Here we go again.

That’s honestly the only thing that I can say after seeing the tease for Civil War 2. Yes, the big storyline that’s being used on the silver screen in Captain America: Civil War is getting a sequel, and no, we know nothing about it, other than it’s going to have the new Iron Man fight Sam Wilson’s Captain America.
