The finale of a Indestructible Hulk’s “Agent of T. I. M. E.” story arc is here. The question now is, is it as epic as the final pages of last issue would lead you to believe it should be?
UNCANNY X-FORCE #8 is an incredibly compelling argument in regards to just what superhero comics are capable of; a deeply felt and personal story that isn’t afraid to embrace the context of it’s own genre, Sam Humphries is using Psylocke’s unique super powers to explore what it is to be a human being, the exact reason these characters were created in the first place.
VENOM is a fearlessly creative, visceral comic book, with gripping art work from a fresh talent in the vein of Joe Madureira,and a huge cast of new characters handled with supreme skill.
UNCANNY X-FORCE is gloriously kaleidoscopic and surreal, a neon daydream riff on celebrity culture and a pop Shaw Brothers/James Bond adventure. Completely and charmingly dripping with sex and violence, Humphries manages to mock the genre’s tropes with a sincerity and depth that keeps things from feeling smug or cynical.
It’s an amazing time to be a DAREDEVIL fan, and DARK NIGHTS, a new anthology series where different comics creators will tell ‘lost tales’ of the man without fear, is absolutely breathtaking. Starring not the man desperately reaching for optimism we’ve come to love in Mark Waid’s series, but the Matt Murdock of twenty years ago – racked with Catholic guilt and obsessed with living up to the image of his dead father.
