(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #37

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist and Colors: Mike Del Mundo; Additional Colors: Marco d’AlfonsoThis issue could be seen as filler afer all of the adventures in the Ultimate universe we just experienced.

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #35-36

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist: Mahmud Asrar; Colors: Marte GraciaMr. Bendis brings the All-New X-Men back from the Ultimate universe and down a path towards redemption. The Jeans interact very well without just being a gimmick.

We already see evidence he is learning from his new experiences with making ice hulks. I’m not sure of the creature he ends […]

She’s in the Ultimates universe and has come face to face with the Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales.  Status check: Warren Worthington, III, Angel, is in the Savage Land with our first post-Wolverine sighting of a clawed male character. […]

(Belated) Comic Review: Legendary Star-Lord #1

This issue is a wonderful start/setup/introduction to the “legendary” Star-Lord. Sam Humphries and Paco Medina have a great thing going on here. I’ve missed Mr. Medina’s work over in Nova.

Review: All-New X-Men #28
