    On the one hand, I think Spider-Man: Life Story #4 is the weakest of the four chapters thus far. That being said, it's still great! Who would've thought Chip Zdarsky could make a Clone Saga that's...

    All right, on the plus side, Amazing Spider-Man #23 (#824) does a great job tying up loose ends and laying the groundwork for new stories. On the minus side, doesn't the ending make Kraven's second...

    Well, it's intentionally tongue-in-cheek, because according to early rumors about the movie, the aliens were originally intended to be Skrulls. Even James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender kind of joked...

    Well, I managed to watch Dark Phoenix and write up a review for it. Do I think it's as bad as X-Men: The Last Stand? No. I think it's actually worse. Because at least The Last Stand was actually fun...

    I have to say, while Doomsday Clock #10 gets very exposition heavy, I rather enjoyed it. Also, as I allude to in this review, there's not even an attempt by Geoff Johns at hiding just how meta this...

    Absolutely. If one just looks at the scene where Jon kills Daenerys in the Throne Room and it's aftermath, it makes complete sense in the broad strokes.

    You have Daenerys who sees herself as a...

    I know, I know, Spider-Man: Life Story #3 came out last week. But why not still write a review about it? Especially considering I think that not only is this some of the best work Chip Zdarsky and...

    All of which is valid criticism. What I would disagree with is that "nothing" promoted Dany burning King's Landing. There's some very crucial lines of dialogue in the very episode that a lot of...
