Comic Review: The Terrifics #6

The Background- DC is lucky enough to squeeze out one more issue of The Terrifics before Marvel brings home their own super-powered foursome. It was a blatant move when DC decided to make their own version of the Fantastic Four, and they weren’t trying to hide it. Even the competition knew that the world was…

Comic Review: Amazing Spider-Man #2

The Background- There is no doubt that there is something special in the air surrounding Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley’s fresh run on Amazing Spider-Man.

Comic Review: Avengers #2

The Background- Marvel’s Legacy relaunch continues with the second issue of Avengers.  There is plenty to be excited about for this rebranding, and this title is just the beginning.  Personally, I am counting down the days to the return of Marvel’s first family the Fantastic Four, but this will do for now.  I absolutely loved…

Comic Review: Avengers #1

The Background- It is a new age for Marvel.  This time it is not so much about rekindling readership, but the company’s hands were kind of forced.  A new editor-in-chief in C.B.
