Comics Reviews – Week of 03/21/18 Part 1

Admittedly as I got started with this website I wasn’t really sure how I was going to pull off doing comic book reviews every week.  I want to be able to cover a broad range of the books that I read regularly but I just don’t have the time to do an individual big write up for each book.  It’s just not realistic at this point in time.  However, I think I have found a compromise.  I am going to try to write up 2 or 3 of these posts a week (as time allows) where I am taking an in-brief look at 4 or 5 recent comics releases that I have read.

The current creative team on Daredevil, Charles Soule (writer), Ron Garney (artist), and Matt Milla (colors) is incredibly solid.  They are bringing a very gritty feel to the best of Marvel’s “street level heroes.”   Continue reading
