Harbinger 10 (March 2013)

Now here’s a great issue. Dysart manages to turn the all-action issue into something with some content, probably because he’s got enough characters doing different things it can be a rewarding reading experience.

New Avengers: The Reunion 4 (August 2009)

Mockingbird comes off a lot better–Lopez has a similar problem with Bucky Captain America, he looks about twelve. When he and Clint bicker–a decent scene too–it’s like the Little Rascals fighting over a gumdrop. Still, it’s a […]
