REVIEW: Star Trek Year Five #10 — "The Plot Kind Of Pushes All The Dishes Off The Table"

REVIEW: New Mutants #7 — "An Afro-Latinx Barney Stinson In Space"

(Marvel Comics, creative team: Jonathan Hickman, Rod Reis, Travis Lanham) The most important thing to note here is that Bobby DaCosta is superbly entertaining.
