The story focuses on Spider-Man’s sort of girlfriend and definitely thief, the Black Cat, and introduces her crime team, as they get themselves involved in stealing from and for Spider-Man’s enemy, Kraven. The tale is ok, as it attempts to give depth to both the character and background of Felicia Hardy. I can’t say that …

This collection of tales involve the wall crawling vigilante during his time either wearing the black costume that was really an alien, or fighting against it when it found a new host and called itself Venom. I was pretty impressed with most of the stories and their various artists. I will point out that there …

A couple of fun little stories about the wall crawling vigilante in alternate worlds such as where Spider-Man is Spider-Ham! Don’t take it seriously and you’ll probably enjoy it.

This is a short collection of adventures teaming up the wall crawler and the super-powered family as they deal (mainly) with the master of technology and sorcery: Dr. Doom (or is it?). Not bad, although it is really annoying that a third of the collecting is just old repeats.

Huh? Ok, Asgard is lies in a heap of rubble and extra dimensional monsters are invading. So far so good. But out of nowhere Thor decides to resurrect his evil half brother, Loki, you know, the god who helped cause all this death and destruction; bring back Odin, you know the king god who could …

Odin is gone, Thor is in charge, nobody is happy, there is some She-Thor, then there is Mr I kill gods for a living, then there was a cool bit about Thor verse everyone, then reality stuck its head out (you can’t really destroy the Marvel universe, can you?), and finally I was disappointed.

Beautifully illustrated by Simone Bianchi, the story is of an Asgard without Odin. Thor attempts to keep the peace between the various realms but forces of evil and chaos are at work. While it isn’t the best story every, it is very enjoyable.

Three tales from different authors about, well, Thor. Not very memorable.

So many great elements. The super secret spy agency has been around throughout history defending humanity with the catchphrase “this is not how the world ends.” Hickman has a lot of fun by providing lots of, well, if not Marvel characters, the relatives of people we know in Marvel, as well as historical figures. Sadly, …

This was not a good comic. The two frienemies are bouncing around in time and fighting The Orb and two very funny (although very stereotyped) black guys and even a couple of surprise guests. Despite it all, I had a great deal of fun reading this. Go figure.

What a great idea! Take the trio from Thor, give them a back-story, pit them against the Fenris Wolf, and throw in the terrorist organization A.I.M. Sadly, the ending doesn’t do the work justice. Plus, there needs to be some more editing. It was Fandral’s horse that gets killed first, despite what Hogun says, and …

This anthology of stories about the far too many superheroes that make up the now popular team was surprisingly good. While there are always levels of quality in any collection (the weakest being the last in this case), I was seriously impressed how much I enjoyed the whole work. Well done!

The superhero King of the super-high-tech African nation of Wakanda goes with his new wife, the mutant Storm, on a tour of various super powered nations and then decided to interfere in the American superhero civil war. Not horrible, but I only really enjoyed the couple’s running around to visit other monarchies.

Or should it be X-Men: Civil War? Anyway, I’m trying to catch up to the last decade by reading various Marvel collections about big events such as this, which goes through some of the mutant titles and explains their involvement in the superhero war over registering heroes. I only really got into the Wolverine issues, …

I kind of liked this. The “new” mutant group of X-Men go to limbo to deal with a renegade group of soldiers and hordes of demons. Some good sneaky plots and a couple of moments of character development. I admit that I was most interested in the characters I had read about in the late …

The super-family has to deal with child services, the Thing realizing he’s rich, and Mr. Fantastic being, well, god. Very long winded and not too thrilling.

Remember when I wrote: “Loeb is at his best when he provides snapshots of events revolving around a larger plot”? Well, this isn’t one of those times. Loeb brings back the thunder god, who it would seem died in the ridiculous destruction of New York in the Ultimate storyline, through a convoluted plot by Loki …

Using the five stages of grief as a guide, Loeb has various characters react the the incredibly arrogant and asinine move by Marvel to kill the symbol of America. I suppose it makes sense: A big corporation that owes everything to their fans and treats them like trash. Wow, all of a sudden it seems …

I thought this comic would be great. Dr. Doom plots to steal the super-metal, Vibranium, from the country of Wakanda in order to upgrade his robots and take over the world. Sadly, the tale gets out of control as a couple of Black Panthers, Wakandian commandos, several X-Men, and the Fantastic Four all get involved. …

The best thing about taking a bunch of nobody superheroes (I use that term loosely) is that authors can work on making their personalities and interactions truly their own without the baggage of history. McKeever does this well by taking a group of nobody kid heroes and throwing them against the evil kids of supervillains. …
