Amazing X-Men #1 by Jason Aaron – Friday Flash Review [Shadowhawk/Bane of Kings]

Amazing X-Men #1

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the newly launched Amazing X-Men series by Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuinness.

“As a newcomer to the X-titles from Marvel, this new book looks like something I’d definitely enjoy, given how good the first issue was. And it features one of my favourite X-Men so that’s double the amount of fun really.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Jason Aaron delivers a fun reintroduction of Nightcrawler. Whilst this may be yet another X-Book, it’s a damn good X-Book with lots of potential to come.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

X-Men: Battle of the Atom Part 2 – A Marvel Comics Event Review [Bane of Kings/Shadowhawk]

X-Men - Battle of the Atom 02

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the second month of Marvel’s one of two ongoing events, celebrating 50 years of X-Men comics.

Whilst Battle of the Atom may have started out strong, it rapidly goes downhill and ends up being a disappointing mess that could have been pulled off so much better. Best Avoided. ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“After the strong start in September, the October issues for the event can only be summed up as heroes fighting each other just for the hell of it because why not, its all just cool right?” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

X-Men: Battle of the Atom Part 1 – A Marvel Comics Event Review [Bane of Kings/Shadowhawk]

Battle of the Atom 01

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first month of Marvel’s one of two ongoing events, celebrating 50 years of X-Men comics.

Battle of the Atom so far is an event with an absolutely awesome premise and some killer artwork, yet it finds itself let down by the fact that it feels like it’s being dragged out over too many books” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“As with DC’s Trinity War, Marvel’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom is my first taste of reading a major event unfold on a week-by-week basis, and I’m definitely loving it. I’m coming in without any previous comics knowledge, and yet the story is very approachable, which is great.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

An excellent anthology showcasing the best of what comics has to offer. Absolutely loved it. A must read whether you’ve read the original American Vampire series or not, American Vampire Anthology #1 is not only Pick of the Week, but Pick of the Month, and a very strong contender for Pick of the Year~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
