We may not have time to review every book on our pull-lists but we do aim to provide a snapshot of what's been released over the past week, encompassing the good, the bad, and those that lie somewhere in between.
Writer: Jason Aaron
Matt C: Renumbering again, and whether or not it’s actually numerically accurate, reaching #700 is a pretty big deal either way, and Jason Aaron certainly rises to the occasion. The longer this tale goes on, the more it looks like this is going to fall into the category of ‘magnum opus’, as Aaron is clearly putting his heart and soul into the characters and storytelling. It shows; the situations may be fantastical but the characters feel real. It’s definitely worth the $5.99 price-tag, the artistic talent brought in to justify the page-count really gives us our money’s worth (and who doesn’t want to see Becky Cloonan do a Thor book now??). You would think after all this time Aaron would be running on empty but by the looks of it he’s got plenty more tricks up his sleeve. 8/10
