Released: June 11, 2014 

It’s clear Hulk is outclassed by this new version of his longtime foe, the Abomination, but when his friends are in danger, you can bet the titan will rise to the occasion to take on any obstacle. Mark Waid hit us with an exciting cliffhanger in the last issue and I’m happy to report it’s given a fairly awesome follow-up. Mark Bagley(pencils), Andrew Hennessy (inks), and Jason Keith (colors) create a splash page that’s sure to make most Hulk fans cheer — I know I sure did. It’s a great compliment to the last issue’s final page, and the rest of the madness and destruction is where this visual team really shines. They do a proper job letting us know how vicious and chaotic a fight between these characters should be.

 The panels are never laid out in a creative way, but the fight never feels static and flows well from hit to hit. It’s impactful and downright brutal in a few moments. Truthfully, there’s some panels which feel a little rushed compared to the rest (mostly when there’s several characters involved in a mid-shot), but the visuals are consistent for the most part and I’m an especially big fan of how the hero in San Francisco is brought to life. In all I would rate this issue an 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Hulk #3

Hulk #3

Written by: Mark Waid 

Art by: Mark Bagley 

Cover by: Jerome Opena, Dean White 

Released: May 21, 2014 

After receiving a gunshot to the head, Bruce Banner received horrific brain damage and was relocated to a S.H.E.I.L.D. controlled small town in hopes he can recover. Maria Hill herself is trying to protect Banner, and is doing quite a terrible job at it considering how often he still Hulks-out. A mysterious enemy is targeting Banner and has sent a zombiefied Abomination to destroy him, and the town as collateral damage. Realizing her plan to keep Banner safe and hidden has failed miserably, Hill calls in the reinforcements. Soon Captain America, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel swoop in to save the day, but there are some surprises in store for the Avengers and their big green friend.

Mark Waid is an old pro at combining bombastic action with fulfilling character moments, so it should come as no surprise that this issue is filled with both. Waid’s decision to rob Banner of his intellect has opened up new character possibilities and fleshed out his supporting cast. The presence of Hill and a trio of Avengers feels completely organic and not shoehorned in for attention. Waid had been working to ingrate Banner into S.H.E.I.L.D. as an ally (he can only wander sadly for so long. after all) and this inversion of the classic dynamic makes the Hulk into someone his fellow heroes care for instead of fearing. In all I would rate this issue a 8.2/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Legendary Star-Lord #11

Legendary Star-Lord #11

Written by: Sam Humphries 

Art by: Paco Medina 

Cover by: Paco Medina 

Released: April 15, 2015

Writer Sam Humphries has a real knack for not only giving each character a very particular voice. Both Kitty and Peter really have distinctive voices and more than that, they’re entertaining characters to read. I caught myself having a giggle or two when Kitty says “space is not my jam” or when Peter sees his reflection in the Black Vortex.

Kitty’s dialogue is what really drives the story and that’s set up from the first page of the issue. Yes, there’s a lot of narration in this issue but it gives us a glimpse into Kitty’s mind, right up until the final moments of this issue.

Can we just rename this book KITTY & STAR-LORD already? That’s the best part about this issue and series, since Kitty came in. We get to watch their relationship blossom and there’s some great moments here, because of Kitty’s narration, where we find out how she feels about Peter’s actions during pivotal moments.

The artwork done by Medina is amazing. Everytime a read a Star-Lord issue I am just amazed at the artwork. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling

(AVX)Secret Avengers #27

Secret Avengers #27

Written by: Rick Remender 

Art by: Renato Guedes 

Released: May 23, 2012 

The return of Captain Marvel may be the most controversial aspect of this arc, but it’s also the most enjoyable. Remender has a really interesting take on Mar-Vell’s voice and how he perceives his surroundings via cosmic awareness. There’s also the fact that the character is suffering from some degree of brainwashing. It’s questionable how long this return will last, and thanks to Remender’s deft handling of the character, there’s no reason to fear his legacy being tarnished. That said, Mar-Vell’s sudden romantic fling with Ms. Marvel is a little strange, even if it is the result of mind-control. It seems in poor taste to involve Ms. Marvel in anything of the sort given her history with such matters. The art was good but in some shots the faces looked really wired especially Thors and Visions face. In all I would rate this book a 7.5/10 that’s all for today as as always keep on marveling!

Infinity #6

infinity #6

Written by: Jonathen Hickman 

Art by: Jim Cheung 

Cover by: Adam Kubert 

Released: November 27, 2013 

With the builders out of the picture Jonathen can devote the whole issue about battling for earth. This issue is full of memorable moments such as when Thor and Thanos go face to face against eachother. The funny thing is that not even the avengers defeat Thanos but Thanos’ own son stops his madness. This showed us that Thane is more powerful than Thanos could get dream of. This book was a solid good and amazing end the the Infinity series. My favriot part is when the avengers show up to fight Thanos!

like I said before this issue is just packed with memorable moments.  Jim Cheung returns to bookend the series, with a bit of assistance from Dustin Weaver. This arrangement works well enough, as Weaver’s style falls the closest in line with Cheung’s of the entire Infinity art crew. This issue isn’t quite as striking as the first was, mainly because there are several inkers tackling Cheung’s pencils to varying levels of success and clarity. Still, Cheung and Weaver expertly capture all the spectacle and physical of this grand finale. I would rate this book a 10/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling!


Inifinity: Avengers #19

Inifinity: Avengers #19

Written by: Jonathen Hickman 

Art by: Leinil Francis Yu

Cover by: Ienil Francis Yu 

Released: September 11, 2013 

This issue focuses on captain Marvels captured team and on the remaining heroes trying to win this war. Captain Marvel ups her badass factor another level this issue. She’s been selected for interrogation by the Builders and in the face of death she’s a stone cold quip-machine. The remaining heroes try to plot an attack on the Builders. While they are talking J-Son talks to the Builders only to make a mistake. This issue is very intense and exciting. Yu gives us an issue full of amazing looking Aliens and floating space ships. Even the land where cap and the rest of the members were look amazing. With this being said I would rate this book a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling!

Captain Marvel #1

Cover by: David Lopez 

Released: March 12, 2014 

Captain Marvel A.K.A Carol Danvers must make a decision that will change her life. This issue of Captain Marvel was alright I wouldn’t say it was amazing. There was little to none action and it was very chatty. We do get to see Iron Patriot and Iron man so that’s a plus. We also see Carols love life with Rhodey. She also decides that she will go to space for about a year. Nothing big really happens in this issue. I love the artwork. I love when David Lopez draws because you know it’s going to be good. With that being said I would rate this book a 6.8/10 I hope the next issue is better and as always keep on marveling!


Infinity: Captain Marvel #15 

Captain Marvel #15 

Written by: Kelly Sue DeConnick and Jen Van Meter 

Inker: Drew Geraci 

Color Artist: Andy Troy 

This issue is Captain marvels perspective of the sneak attack they were going to do on the builders. The battle takes place in space near a blackhole,literally a blackhole. There really isn’t anything new in this issue. It’s just the same battle from her eyes although at the very end she makes all the super heroes get into pods so then the Kree can pick them up and save them but to do this she has to make an explosion. When the explosion happens she goes flying and when she wakes up you see super charged up Captain Marvel. I thought that was pretty cool. She does look pretty awesome In the last page. The art work I thought was phenomenal. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Captain Marvel and anyone who likes to see battles in space. In all I would rate this book a 7.5/10 That’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.
