A Hilarious Alien-One Off 0

I never thought Rocket would be right. When he first meets up with Captain Marvel their whole interaction with her cat was laugh out loud funny. It turns out Rocket being Rocket trying to make a buck has put a target on Captain Marvel's ship. The issue plays out like a hilarious version of Alien. Rockets interaction with the "cat" and Captain Marvel is memorable. Their back and forth keeps the issue going. The artwork is too pencil like for me. But it works to build the tension well. I'm just no...

Action Meets Backstory 0

This is a mostly action-oriented issue. Superman fights in a war of words and strength with Helspot. Helspot during this battle explains why he is on earth. He believes he's offering the world for Superman to run. Superman does what he does best. He explains that he is a beacon of hope. That humanity only needs his watchful eye, not his tyranny. There's a good balance of history of Helspot with epic Superman type action. Clark's explanation for why the human race makes him stronger not weak. It ...

Action Packed While Diving Deeper 0

It’s wall to wall action covering from the opening to ending in this issue. There are some great splash panels. Much of the action is spread out between two different groups. I like at time that much of the gloom of this epic tale is meet with some humorous lines from many of the main characters. Telos is shown after being beaten down by the main group, destroying a whole race of people with his power. Readers still get no explanation of why this is all happening.There are a few Batman cam...

A Meeting In Time 0

I get that this is basically a filler story while DC moves their offices from NYC to California. But the issue I have with Convergence is that if you aren’t reading the Earth-2 book or don’t know of these characters then everything is confusing. I thought that the books would be tales from characters we hadn’t heard from in a while. But this is much similar to Marvel’s Secret Wars that is about to happen. Multiverse characters coming together to battle each other for thei...

Shocking End To A Epic Tale 0

The end is here. And it comes more shockingly than I expected. Jonathan Hickman has been taking readers on this journey for a long while. New Avengers has been the more dialogue-heavy, character and science-friendly study of what is going on in the Marvel Universe. This issue doesn’t disappoint. Being that the last few issues have been Doom centric, this final issue has him integral to the end. Mostly the issue delves into how this end came to pass. Plot points are connected and holes are ...

Rabum Alal Is As Epic As Advertised (SPOILERS) 0

My favorite issues of Jonathan Hickman’s New Avengers are when they focus on Black Blot, Doctor Strange and there is a cameo from Dr. Doom. Thankfully we get two of those here. This is a Doctor Strange centric episode with him battling and then being caught by the Black Swans. They explain to him that their leader, Rabum Alal aka the Great Destroyer, wants him alive. This is potentially because it’s not fully explained, that this person is who started the universes colliding that wil...

Jessica Becomes A Street Level Hero Again 0

I wasn’t a fan of Spider-Woman for a while. I just hadn’t read anything with her. I was just pig headed about spider characters outside of Spider-Man. But getting to know her better in the Spider-Verse has swung me on to her fan bandwagon. She’s snarky with leader qualities to boot. But she still has those Peter Parker type Spider-Man moments. The show up in this issue which has her striking out on her own after quitting the Avengers. (It also helps that her best friend is Capt...

Everything Stops Because We Need More Character Study 0

I have become obsessed with this character. After her premiere in the Spider-Verse, I feel in love with her. I dig her costume, her feel, the attitude and the way she handles herself. I’ve never been a big fan of Gwen Stacy but this kind of re-invention of her is so appealing. This second issue continues the cliffhanger that was left in issue number one. It’s more of a character study focusing on Gwen and her father. They are both going through a lot because of where they are in life...

Heavy On The Action 0

A very action heavy issue this is, which isn't that bad. I love watching Miguel in action. He has this smooth but vicious fighting style. It’s so much different from Peter’s style. Peter David writes the character well. His inner monologues aren’t boring but a quality character study. Miguel gets some pretty nice quips in this issue. The story continues as fresh out of the Spider-Verse he comes back to his world and it’s been destroyed. He’s been taking captive by M...
