by Dean Fuller

Written by Jason Aaron | Art by Javier Garron | Published by Marvel Comics It’s easy as a reviewer to just pick up and review books you know you will like. I’m as guilty as anyone. If I see a certain character guest starring, or a certain creator involved, I will probably pick up that […]

‘Marvel #2’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics Back in the Spring the first issue of this book slipped out, though I don’t think its launch got quite the reception Marvel was expecting. I think it did OK, but wasn’t a game changer as such. The book was two things. One, […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christopher Cantwell | Art by Cafu | Published by Marvel Comics I write this on a Thursday, so that must mean it’s time for a new Iron Man issue 1. I jest of course, but it does seem as though Iron Man has had more reboots, reimagining’s, and restarts than most. Since his […]
