Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Blood
3.86
It looks like I may be in the minority here. There are things that I did like about this book. The art is better than I expected from the cover, and I...more

All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, Vol. 1
3.15
Why do I do this to myself? I just had to see how bad Frank Miller had gotten. Couldn't I take the other reviewers at their word? No, I just had to se...more

Batman, Vol. 3: Death of the Family
4.32
I feel like there's a very good chance that Death of the Family will one day be remembered as a classic, one of the great Joker stories. Maybe even on...more

Batman, Vol. 4: Zero Year - Secret City
4.21
In Zero Year, Snyder is going back to Batman's origin. I'm sure everybody who's written the Bat wants to do this eventually, so I'm not surprised he d...more

The Savage Hawkman, Vol. 2: Wanted
2.79
I want to make it very clear that I didn't read this of my own free will. It's not like I said to myself, "You know what would be awesome? Hawkman! Wr...more

Wolverine and the X-Men, Vol. 1
4.09
I was actually really surprised with how much I liked this. But it's funny, it has great characters and good art, the plot is both unexpected and a gr...more

Uncanny Avengers, Vol. 1: The Red Shadow
3.88
A decent enough premise for a team, ruined by a dumb story. In the wake of Avengers vs. X-Men, the concept of the team makes perfect sense, from both...more

Captain Marvel, Vol. 1: In Pursuit of Flight

I fully admit that my top reason for picking up this trade was that amazing cover. I absolutely love Carol's new look, and I love the style this cover...more

The Savage Hawkman, Vol. 1: Darkness Rising
2.71
This really is bad. Worse than just being poorly written, it's boring, too. You just can't start a book with the main character torching his famous co...more

Wolverine and the X-Men, Vol. 2

I'm really liking this series. Sure, this volume has a little less madcap action than the first, but it has enough of the same elements to be successf...more

The Superior Spider-Man, Vol. 2: A Troubled Mind
4.14
How is this so good? I don't like the basic premise any more than I did when I first heard it. It's doomed to fail eventually, right? Marvel can't pos...more

Thor: God of Thunder, Vol. 1: The God Butcher
4.23
This is the best thing that I've read out of Marvel Now yet. Aaron's take on Thor has the character as an actual god, full stop. The kind that answers...more

Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol. 1

I'm a gamer, but I have no real interest in fighting games. So I'd had no intention of playing Injustice, and even less motivation to read the tie-in...more

Amazing X-Men, Volume 1: The Quest for Nightcrawler

I have to be a little hypocritical here. I complain about comics bringing characters back from the dead so often that death becomes a revolving door,...more

All-New X-Men, Vol. 4: All-Different

This volume seemed like a bit of a dip in quality. Or maybe that's because a few issues with some serious developments have been skipped between the p...more

Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon
4.22
There's a ton of good buzz surrounding Matt Fraction's Hawkeye. It's deserved. The stories are fun, light on continuity, and filled with great dialog...more

Messiah Complex

"No more mutants." Scarlet Witch's curse, and a death sentence for mutants as a people. And now a mutant has been born, literally. Naturally, this lea...more

The Superior Foes of Spider-Man Volume 2: The Crime of the Century

Well, it isn't quite as good as the first volume was. But it's still very fun to read. Part of the problem is that only two of the five issues collect...more

Avengers vs. X-Men (A vs. X Complete)

Another year, another disappointing Marvel crossover event. The premise is right there in the title. Unfortunately, building the crossover meant jetti...more

X-Men, Vol. 1: Primer

Well, this sounded interesting. An all-female X-Men team? I can sign up for that. Especially when I'm fond of every lady represented here. Well, excep...more

Batman R.I.P.

The truth of the matter is that I ultimately don't know what to make of this. Morrison is talented, but he's more of a concept guy than an execution g...more

Avengers vs. X-Men: Consequences

I really disliked Avengers vs. X-Men. It was, to me, the pinnacle of characters behaving in ways that they never would normally, because there would b...more

All-New X-Men, Vol. 3: Out of Their Depth

Perhaps the best thing in this shockingly compelling series is what Bendis is doing with Jean. Taking one of the dullest, most overrated characters (i...more

Disappointing. Kirkman realized too late that he'd made Negan too smart, too dangerous, and too competent for Rick, and so dumbs him down this volume....more

Anything that can remind me of the glory days of The X-Files is a good thing. FBP does exactly that, without being in any sense a copy. It's the conce...more
