Punisher #13 Review – Surprising Heart In A Problematic Character

Punisher #13 by Becky Cloonan, Kris Anka and Matt Wilson is a self-contained tale that contains a surprising amount of heart and also relatively bloodless for a Punisher story. Which for me is a good thing. Let me be straight-up here: I hate the Punisher. The whole concept of the character bugs me. That’s not […]

Growth and Moving On: Star-Lord #6 Review

It is genuinely a terrible shame that this series, one of the best series coming out from Marvel at the moment is now over. Not because it’s left hanging; despite what is apparently not the original plans of the creative team, they manage to wrap up pretty much every thread in this series in a […]
