‘X-Men: Magneto Testament’ By Greg Pak – Comic Book Review

Powerful and haunting. This Magneto story has very little to do with superheros or mutants. It could almost be passed off as a historical comic book based around concentration camps. This is in no way a superhero story. There is one moment … Continue reading

‘Catwoman: When in Rome’ – Comic Book Review

  Conflicted. This is a 6/10 book, with an extra score because the art is stunning. I love Tim Sale’s art and enjoy his layouts, and use of silhouettes. Yet this book had water coloring by Dave Stewart and it … Continue reading
