‘Falcon’ and Miles Morales’ ‘Spider-Man’ Cancelled in June

With Marvel’s June solicits breaking today, two titles are notably absent from the lineup. Rodney Barnes’ Falcon and the departing Brian Michael Bendis’ Spider-Man (Miles Morales’ book) are nowhere to be seen in the June output from the House of Ideas. Unfortunately, neither is especially surprising. The fan of the Falcon and Barnes’ take on the character that I am, this book […]

Marvel Legacy #1 Review: A Lackluster Tease For Upcoming Titles

So, here we are at last. The long-awaited Marvel Legacy #1 is out. I’m going to go ahead and throw a spoiler warning here.

Secret Empire #10 Review: A Better Ending Than This Series Earned

This is it. This is the big one. In the wise words of Red Foxx: “I’m coming, Elizabeth.” Or at least, I would be if this were nearly as bad as I feared it would be. With Secret Empire #10, for the first time, Secret Empire actually surprised me. Considering this is the ending, that is […]
