The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #4 by Dan!

Welcome back to the internet’s most exhausted reviews!  If you see the quality dipping I’ll blame it on the school semester, and we’ll see if Phil bans me from ever writing blog posts again.  Let’s do this: My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Secret Warriors #19 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Alessandro Vitti Secret Warriors is quickly becoming one of Marvel’s most fascinating works.  Month in and month out, Hickman delivers great action, drama, and ideas.  This time it’s probably the most powerful in the positioning of the Howling Commandos reunion juxtaposed with the death of many … Continue reading
