Dark Wolverine #76

Dark Reign: Dark Wolverine #76 Review

Marvel Writers: Daniel Way, Marjorie Liu Pencils: Giuseppe Camuncoli Inks: Onofrio Catacchio Daken continues to prove that he’s not the genuine Wolverine, he’s just a very naughty boy, as he playfully manipulates Norman Osborn, Hawkeye/Bullseye and the Fantastic Four to his advantage. ‘The Prince’ is an example of a pretty average comic plot held together […]

Dark Avengers #7

Utopia: Dark Avengers #7 Comic Review

Marvel Writer: Matt Fraction Pencils: Luke Ross Inks: Rick Maygar, Mark Pennington, Luke Ross Colours: Rain Beredo Matt Fraction takes the reins from Brian Bendis for several issues, as the Dark Avengers are sucked into the Utopia crossover, and the abrupt shift in tone is jarring to say the least.

Secret Invasion TPB

Secret Invasion TPB Review

2008, Marvel Writer: Brian Michael Bendis Artist: Leinil Francis Yu Inks: Mark Morales Colours: Laura Martin, Emily Warren “Who do you trust?” The Marvel Universe is a wonderfully eclectic creative landscape.

For anyone left dangling by last issue’s shocking cliff-hanger, I think it’s fair […]

Punisher #6

Dark Reign: Punisher #6 Comic Review

Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Tan Eng Huat Colours: Lee Loughbridge One of the most enjoyable facets of Dark Reign, this rebranded Punisher: War Journal has so far been a blast. With Norman Osborn’s sovereignty overshadowing every major Marvel title at the moment, Frank Castle has his work cut out for him, and Rick Remender has […]

Dark Reign: New Avengers #52

Dark Reign: New Avengers #52 Review

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis Art: Billy Tan, Matt Banning, Justin Ponsor, Chris Bachalo, Tim Townsend, Antonio Fabela Ever since New Avengers started back in 2005 I’ve generally felt a bit apathetic towards the title. Brain Michael Bendis just doesn’t do Marvel’s team books as well as his more personal labours such as Jinx, Alias, Powers […]
