Comic Book Wins and Losses April 11th, 2018: Sorting Out the New Series’

We’re going to start this installment with a bit of housekeeping for those who, for whatever reason, follow my exploits here on Bleeding Cool.

Lemire and Sorrentino’s Gideon Falls #1 Gets Badly Needed Second Printing

If nobody actually yelled “stop the presses,” we’re going to be disappointed.

Secret Empire #5 Review – Just Not Good Super Hero Fiction

Now, even though I am Bleeding Cool’s “Secret Empire is actually pretty good” guy, doesn’t mean I think the series is perfect. It has its flaws, and one of my first two articles for BC was my review of #2, which was a comic that could basically be summed up with “Hey, don’t forget to […]

The Penny Drops – Secret Empire #2 Reviewed (SPOILERS)

The Hydra Cap storyline has been going on for over a year. Secret Empire will see it’s culmination. In the whole period, writer Nick Spencer and various editors at Marvel have assured that this isn’t a clone, this isn’t an alternate reality Steve Rogers, this isn’t mind control. This is the ‘true’ Steve Rogers, a […]

A Beautiful Garbage Fire – Secret Empire #1 Review

Should I start with a caveat? I don’t know, it feels like maybe I should say? Okay, I’m just gonna say it. I have not cared for Nick Spencer‘s HydraCap plot. Not because it is bad structurally, or even necessarily badly written – technically, Spencer has pulled off the reveal and build of this long […]
