Avengers A.I. #8
1) Even though the .NOW issues are supposed to be good jumping on points, this issue doesn’t seem like a particularly good one for a first time reader.
2) Like seeing other superheroes show up in the story. The presence of Captain America and Rogue makes it feel like it exists in the same universe as the rest of the Marvel titles.
3) Love the continuing question of whether AIs should be considered life forms.
Loved. Continue reading
Animal Man #26
1) Love the idea that the Red and the Green are bigger than just Earth.
2) Everything felt very rushed.
3) Liked the art, but it seemed very out of place with what the rest of the series has looked like.
Okay. Continue reading
Daredevil Dark Nights #7
1) I don’t know a lot about Misty Knight, but is she always so… forward?
2) I actually love seeing Matt Murdock, rather than Daredevil.
3) Definitely more interesting than last issue.
Liked. Continue reading

3) That ending looks fantastic, but it seemed to come out of nowhere.
Liked a lot. Continue reading
1) Somehow completely serious at the same time as utterly absurd.

3) The back and forth between Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson is exactly what a discussion between two long time friends should sound like.
LOVE. Horrified to discover it will be ending at issue 36. Continue reading
Avengers Assemble #19
Should I admit that I’m not actually reading Infinity? I know enough about it to appreciate this tie-in issue though. It’s character focused rather than event focused, and having a much smaller cast of characters makes it feel a lot more personal. Continue reading
Captain Marvel #15
How do you combine the aftermath of a mini-event (Enemy Within) with a big event (Infinity)? Just like this. You don’t take the easy way and say “this takes place before…” No, you tie in the heartbreaking finale of Enemy Within and make it work perfectly in the context of a giant space battle.
