Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the latest tie-in mini-series for Marvel’s Spider-Verse event.

“After my disillusionment with both the end of Original Sin and the start of Avengers & X-Men: Axis, Spider-Verse seems to be going all-out in every way possible and Spider-Verse Team-Up #1 is pretty damn awesome.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Fans of Spider-Man will find something to love here. It might not be essential to the main events of Spider-Verse, but that doesn’t stop it from being great fun to read.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Deadpool: The Wedding of Deadpool by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Mike Hawthorne and Scott Koblish – Comic Review [Bellarius]


Giving a rare look at a modern Marvel comic he doesn’t despise, Bellarius thumbs through the pages of The Wedding of Deadpool by a variety of authors who know the character best.

“It’s Deadpool doing whathe does best, with the writers offering a constant barrage of fourth wall breaking gags, gore and explosions. The joke is great, but begins to wear more than a little thin by the end.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Cyclops #1 – Friday Flash Review


Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first issue of a Cyclops-focused series.

With the bastard spawn of this series being spewed out by Marvel, Bellarius returns to one of the worst series of the last several years: Dennis Hopeless’ Avengers Arena.

Avengers Undercover 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at another new #1 from Marvel, part of its All-New Marvel NOW! launch initiative.

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

Red Sonja Vol.1 Queen of Plagues

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for February.

“A mix of Marvel comics here, with All-New Invaders not being quite up to par but the latest chapter of Revolutionary War is indeed quite impressive. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Scott Lobdell misfires yet again with Teen Titans, proving that this series is deserving of its cancellation whilst Gail Simone works wonders with the first Volume of  Red Sonja.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Then don’t worry, because All New X-Factor #1 is the perfect jumping on point for newcomers – it might not be the best book out there right now but it certainly shows some promising signs.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Bit of a rough but promising start.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
