Aquaman and the Others 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of a new series that focuses on the Geoff Johns-created superhero team The Others.

“I remain unimpressed. But at least this was a better issue than Jurgens’ work on Superman for New 52.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

It’s good to see Aquaman get a second ongoing series but Jurgens unfortunately can only deliver an average debut.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first issue of the new Daredevil series by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, the latest in the All-New Marvel Now launch.

 ”A fantastic start to what promises to be a fantastic series.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

A great first issue that although not perfect, does lay the groundwork for a very interesting series with some great character development~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Bored and uninterested. That’s all I can think of really.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
