Re: New Mutants #11

This was a really nice conclusion to the arc. This issue felt dense -- Brisson nicely juggled a lot of different elements here both in terms of the immediate story, his longer set-up, and as medium13 alludes to a larger narrative context. And he used his large cast well for the most part. Plus Flavi...

Re: Wolverine #3

There is plenty that is good here: the story is fine, Percy writes Wolverine well, I agree the Flower Cartel are a nice new addition as villains, and the geopolitics involved is fun...but when I read this I can't help but feel when you have all of Krakoa and a million mutants why do we get the same ...

Re: Giant Sized X-Men: Magneto

Agree with the consensus here that this was basically just nice to look at. There are some great images but why they need the extra pages I don't get. The (literal) title feels like a gimmick in a bad way. My main complaint is that the character interactions didn't quite feel right. I'm a fan of all...

Re: Empyre #1

The switch wasn't terribly surprising (the Cotati dude looked creepy from the start) and I actually think it makes the story worse. There is a scene in here where Stark is glad to be back to a simple good guys vs bad guys situation, but then it turns out Hulkling is in charge and this isn't so simpl...

Re: Captain Marvel # 17

This was a really fun idea that unfortunately was not executed to its potential. As Northstar said the resolution of the escape room is too simple. It should have been a more elegant puzzle.

Also mentioned is Roxxon going bankrupt. Meanwhile in Banner's mindscape the Devil Hulk is sealed away. Banner ...

Re: X-Force #10

The body-horror elements of this were nice and Cassara did a great job with it on art. Kid Omega dying over and over would be a great theme throughout this book. I agree with some of the complaints here about the issues weaknesses though, and I personally find the final scene to be ugh.

Re: Empyre: Fantastic four # 0

I agree the story in this seemed unnecessary but I still like the 'history lessons' that are sprinkled in these prequels that serve to remind the readers of the past conflict that has set up the current circumstances. It makes you want to go back and revisit some of those classic issues.

Notes on chapters 13-14! After the ordering of six more episodes came a final order for five more. By this point Houston was gone and Saban was again pushing for ever cheaper animation which is why there is a decline. Still Lewald values some of the episodes: he mentions Storm Front as an example he...
