The fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a wild one, from the debut of Ghost Rider to killer LMDs to the Secret Empire world of Agents of Hydra, the ride has been intense.  Now it ends here in a season finale that’s sure to go out with a bang. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “World’s End.”

Civil War II: The Oath – Endings and Beginnings

aciv1

There’s only one thing worse than a failed project, and that’s a failed project that sells itself out as an ad for the next project. That’s what the epilogue to the disappointing Civil War II really is. It’s just a prologue for the next big Marvel Comics crossover event – Secret Empire. What’s that old saying? Fool me once… Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Civil War II; The Oath #1… because it gets much, much worse…

Marvels and Monsters – Reviewing The Mighty Captain Marvel and Monsters Unleashed

This week we have two number one issues from Marvel Comics, one spinning out of a major crossover event and the other setting up its own crossover event.

Glenn Walker Reviews Civil War II #8

This is it, the finale of Civil War II for better or worse. The war of the superheroes over an Inhuman who can supposedly predict the future and how that knowledge should be used is finally at an end. Will the combat between Iron Man and Captain Marvel end in death? Will there be rift in the Avengers forever? Will we get a story as well as an anticlimactic event? The answers are here, with my review of Civil War II #8, after the jump.

Glenn Walker Reviews Civil War II #7

Talk is cheap. And in Civil War II #7, nothing happens but talk, and it’s not cheap. For five dollars American I got pretty pictures, a lot of talk, hardly any plot progression, and nothing happens. In a comic that includes entire pages taken up by credits, alternate covers, a next issue tease, and a minimalist roll call, that is awful. When it’s taken into account how late this event series is, it is simply an awful shame. But then again, what does or doesn’t happen in this issue may be a matter of perspective, and we may just have seen the death of another major Marvel superhero. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on what does happen in Civil War II #7…

Civil War II Prequels and Side Stories

Civil War II is not just happening in the core title this summer and autumn (and possibly into winter!), but also throughout the Marvel Comics line. There have been a ton of comics connected to it and talking about it, or at least pretending to. Meet me after the jump and I’ll be discussing Civil War II comics featuring Ulysses, Karnak, Doctor Doom, Nick Fury, and the Totally Awesome Hulk, among others.

Glenn Walker Reviews Civil War II #6

War Machine is dead. She-Hulk is barely alive after a coma. The Hulk is dead, killed by Hawkeye. And now Spider-Man might kill Captain America? Is this really what we want in a comic book? Are readers that bloodthirsty that we’ve entered the era where Rollerball and Death Race are almost real? Surely it can’t be that bad, or as Civil War II #6 rolls out the week before one of the most insane US Presidential elections in history, is it? Or perhaps there is a more sinister reason behind all this. Meet me after the jump for my admittedly dark pre-Halloween pre-election thoughts on Civil War II #6…
