    Avengers (2016) #3-6 Review: The Spider-centric Bogenriederspective

  • Secret Wars (2015) Event Review (Spoilers)

    Sometime during Jonathan Hickman’s ambitious three year Avengers’ epic, arguably seven years if you include his Fantastic Four run, a term emerged among his fans; “In Hickman, We Trust.” Hickman, notorious for his grand plans and often criticized for slowly unraveling them, asked Marvel and their readers to put…

    I review the Free Comic Book Day issue of Avengers that will launch after Secret Wars this fall and will feature Miles Morales as one of the main characters. The book is very refreshing and well written and illustrated. I give it very high marks.

  • Avengers #23 Review

    Fatigue is kicking in, y’all.  Trying to come up with witty things to say in this space is surprisingly hard.  Like, after seeing this issue’s cover, I thought about asking who’s excited about the Avengers movie in May (Avengers Assemble for you U.K. readers—do I have any U.K. readers?),…

  • Avengers #21 Review

    Hey Two-Bit!  This review is a waste of time and space!  Well, thank you very much in advance, dearest readers.  Yes, I’m aware that Spider-Man is no longer in the line-up, but his greatest arch-enemy, Norman Osborn, is still in the book… or at least he’s supposed to be. …

  • Avengers Annual #1 Review

    BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT! ALL TWO OF YOU! It’s the exciting conclusion to the storyline that had us biting our nails in anticipation for the last three months! Wonder Man has had it with the Avengers. He’s put together a ridiculously-named team of D-list heroes, and somehow they successfully…

  • Avengers #19 Review

    Boring Tidbit:  A year and a half after the book’s relaunch, after 18 issues and only three story arcs, it’s probably about time we changed things up again and restructure the Avengers roster.  Don’t you think so?  No?  Neither do I.  And yet, here we are. Avengers #19 Writer:…

  • Avengers #16 Review

    Two-Bit Fears: Fear #4 – Dying “Final Destination” style.  Some of my favorite horror film series are the Final Destination films and the Saw films.  They both deal with people dying in horrendous and mortifying ways, but while the deaths in the latter film series are brought about by…
