Comic Book Reviews: Avengers: Twilight 6AVENGERS: TWILIGHT #6


Writer: Chip Zdarsky

Artist: Daniel Acuña

Letterer: Joe Caramagna

Chip Zdarsky and Daniel Acuña nail the landing for the finale of their Avengers epic with Avengers: Twilight #6. As with the rest of this series, Zdarsky and Acuña keep things simple by showcasing Red Skull as one of the evilest characters in the Marvel Universe and the Avengers as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. In the middle of the simple good vs evil structure we get a lot of great character moments that pay off everything the history this series has built over its six issues. All the story and character payoffs lead to a satisfying ending for what is easily a must-read Avengers story.

Comic Book Reviews: Green Arrow #12GREEN ARROW #12


Writers: Joshua Williamson

Artist: Phil Hester, Eric Gapstur, and Sean Izaakse

Colorist: Romulo Fajardo Jr.

Letterer: Troy Peteri

Green Arrow #12 delivers all the moments for fans of the Arrow Family that made conclusion to the Merlyn Multiverse plotline satisfying. While it is disappointing that Amanda Waller didn’t factor into this ending, it was understandable given the plans for the Absolute Power event. The focus on the united Arrow Family, including one of the best endings to a Green Arrow comic book issue, made this a fun read. Click here to read full review.

Comic Book Reviews: Pine and Merrimac #5 Cover APINE & MERRIMAC #5


Writer: Kyle Starks

Artist: Fran Galan

Letterer: Pat Brosseau

Pine & Merrimac #5 does some of the best work tackling the emotional toil death can have on a person. That’s thanks to how well Fran Galan’s artwork captures the grief Linnea goes through and how she ultimately deals with it. Seeing how that all is done leaves you wondering what Kyle Starks will do with Linnea’s journey, made even more personal with well-timed flashback scenes. The way things end will leave you questioning what you just read in all the best ways. This is certainly a comic book you should pick up when the trade paperback is released.

Overall Rating: 9.5 Night Girls out of 10

Comic Book Reviews: Rise of the Powers of X #5RISE OF THE POWERS OF X #5


Writer: Kieron Gillen

Artist: Luciano Vecchio

Colorist: David Curiel

Letterer: Clayton Cowles

Rise of the Powers of X #5 is unfortunately a mixed bag for being the penultimate chapter of the latest X-Men crossover. Kieron Gillen could not avoid falling into the trappings of how convoluted things were to tell a fully satisfying final battle involving Phoenix, Enigma, Charles Xavier, and Moira X. The way things end leaves a lot of responsibility on Uncanny X-Men #700 to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Krakoa Era. Click here to read full review.

Overall Rating: 5.5 Night Girls out of 10

Comic Book Reviews: Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver #4SCARLET WITCH & QUICKSILVER #4


Writer: Steve Orlando

Artist: Lorenzo Tammetta

Colorist: Frank William

Letterer: Ariana Maher

If nothing else Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver #4 gets over how terrifying Wanda Maximoff is when releasing her limiter and fully embracing her Chaos magic powers. How Wizard’s attempt to destroy the Maximoff siblings led to this made the villains defeat even more satisfying. Outside of that, Steve Orlando and Lorenzo Tammetta continue to highlight where Wanda and Pietro are at this point in their lives. How Magneto ultimately factors into things at the end creates even greater intrigue for deeper exploration of their family dynamic in the future. Which ultimately does its job of building interest for the new Scarlet Witch series launching soon.

Overall Rating: 8 Night Girls out of 10

Comic Book Reviews: Ultimate Spider-Man #5ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #5


Writer: Jonathan Hickman

Artist: David Messina

Colorist: Matthew Wilson

Letterers: Cory Petit and Joe Sabino

Ultimate Spider-Man #5 is a world building issue centered around Harry Osborn’s Green Goblin origin story. While the absence of the Parker Family is certainly felt, Jonathan Hickman makes up for it with more great character and world building. The one-shot style pacing helped to maintain interest in what goes on to look forward to where the developments involving Harry, Gwen Stacy, and Otto Octavius will lead to.

Comic Book Reviews: W0rldtr33 #10W0RLDTR33 #10


Writer: James Tynion IV

Artist: Fernando Blanco

Colorist: Jordie Bellaire

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

The deeper we get into the story of W0rldtr33 the more the feeling that this should’ve been left to be a six issue mini-series grows stronger. That trend continues with W0rldtr33 #10. A lot of that comes down to just not being as invested in any of these characters anymore. A lot of the novelty of the way the story tackled tech horror is lost. Lacking a connection to these characters hampers any sort of development the story tries to make. The artwork at least continues to be on point to lift the story up to make sure the sci-fi and grounded elements all work together in the same world.

Overall Rating: 5 Night Girls out of 10
