‘Iron Man 2020 #1’ Comic Review

I must confess to not being the biggest fan of Dan Slott’s Iron Man run, which I find to be a meandering and generic take on Marvel’s armored avenger. However, Iron Man 2020 could be an opportunity for Slott’s run on the character to go down in comics history — that is if the creative ...

Fantastic Four #5 Review

To start this review in a personal way, I’ve been reading Marvel’s True Believers line of reprints, picking up a couple every Wednesday.

Amazing Spider-man #800 Review This was the big finale to Dan Slott’s long run on Amazing Spider-man and it meets almost every expectation one would have going into it and then some. ‘Go Down Swinging’ always felt short at only four issues, but this finale is having enough material to fill more than two regular sized ...
