This hovers at 3.5 stars for me, I'm so torn whether or not I liked it enough to give 4 stars... Marvel in space just really irritates me.. Thanos going on and on for hours about how he's all powerful and can't win the approval of others, and every hero I've never heard of banding together to go to ...

A really weak, dated Batman story. 20% decent storyline, with Batman angsting over his decision to take on Jason Todd as a replacement Robin, and 80% Batman punching a lot of "terrorists" out in the Middle East (and beating up and drugging a few women for variety). The colouring is well done, but th...

Stalin's take on a cosmic epic in the DCU ended up feeling, to me, like a pale imitation of his Marvel U cosmic epics. Sure, he was brought in to essentially do what he'd done for Marvel with his various Thanos minis for DC, but I did expect more out of it. Maybe it's because the anti-life threat fe...

I wish I had (re)read this before reading [b:The Infinity Gauntlet|398916|The Infinity Gauntlet|Jim Starlin|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1174432459s/398916.jpg|529720].

I've read a handful of these 80s Marvel graphic novels. They're all short, though significantly longer than a regular issue, with extra attention paid t...

Nothing about this book is "essential" by any meaning of the word. In fact, the first nine issues were declared to be "imaginary stories" a few years later, since they played so fast and loose with Marvel Comics continuity. About the only things of any note that came out of this book were establishi...

Very good Cosmic story, with an ending that I didn't quite anticipate.

"What have you been smoking, kid? Old tennis shoes?"- The Thing, to Spider-Man, in Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2, written by Jim StarlinThe 1970s story of Adam Warlock is split into two very clear halves, neither of which begin or end in the titular Warlock comic series, and it's a real testament to w...

I admit, I read this because of that scene in Avengers. As good of a reason as any, I think. And I'm glad that I did, because it's really enormous fun.Yes, the exact dialog and the exact character designs are a bit dated. But George Perez is an artist I don't think I could ever get tired of, and the...

I am not a Jason Todd fan in any shape or form, but Batman: ADITF is one of the best stories ever written.
