Champions #13 Review: Broken Buildings And Bad Dads

Not too long ago, Marvel announced that we’d be getting yet another crossover — this time featuring the Avengers and the Champions. It was billed as a “cataclysmic clash” between the older generation, the new, and a world shaking super villain. The covers seemed to bleed contention, spelling trouble for our young cast. Well, we […]

Champions #10 Review: Better Than Its Tie-In Event

* Ties into the Secret Empire crossover A month of reading these characters in other stories — namely Secret Empire and its Uprising tie-in — can really make you forget how charming they are in their own book, am I right?

Secret Empire: Uprising #1 Review- Half-Steps In The Right Direction But Falls Flat

With Black Widow and the Champions departing from the Underground to deal with the Captain America and Hydra problem more directly, a good idea for an off-shoot miniseries arises. The idea is based around a singular question: How is the battle-hardened and cynical Black Widow going to cooperate with this group of idealistic and naïve […]

Champions is Very Much a Modern Classic

Champions is shaping up to cement itself as the most modern classic comic out there at the moment. Less in terms of it being an incredible addition to the library of indispensable comic runs, as it’s perhaps still early days to tell if it will match the likes of Dark Phoenix Saga, Secret Wars, or […]
