    Given the interconnectivity and strengths of Hickman's X-men relaunch, these collected editions seem like a good way to read post HoXPoX, if one isn't keeping up with the floppies. Some of these stories are stronger than...

    I haven't read any Valiant since X-O's last solo book, so I can't say why Aric's hoboing around New York and getting into misunderstandings, but I don't hate it. This was a fun book, that seems to go in a more comedic direction,...

    Had a little more floppy budget than expected, since a few titles didn't come in, so I picked this up, and I'm glad I did. Vibrant, trippy, weird science ensues as the main character undergoes an experiment to travel to...
  • It's like Secret Wars if it was more boring! A generic 'you and him gotta fight' story gets ended with sudden inexplicable knowledge about the setting, and then becomes a stable time loop somehow? It looked like they were...

      I can't speak to the quality of the main series, as I don't read it, and I was the intended audience here (I wanted the cards). But it totally struck me as a lazy and awkwardly made one-shot. Come to think of it we never even learn the villain's name...

  • A fun little story about an evil creature and its quest to get back what's hers. The art is absolutely fantastic. References to the card game aren't a barrier of entry at all, and the plot can be totally understood by someone...

      I was fairly opposed to Magic back in the day. (I worked in a comic shop and it felt very much us vs them, card players vs comic readers). But I loved the Valiant/Acclaim Magic comics.

    En1gma reviewed Canopus #1
    This book definitely turned out to be a lot more trippy and psychological than I expected. Perhaps the negative reviews are from people who didn't want that? Though I can admit that an amnesia plot is pretty cliched. Personally,...

    A fun, albeit brief, magic adventure in a wacky abstract extradimensional setting. Easily enjoyable for anyone who isn't following the line, as the ties to the ongoing story aren't too important to this individual book's...

      Oh man, Kev Walker cards were always my favorite! I didn't know he was doing comics now. I remember wishing to see him do comics as far back as the Onslaught block.

  • A reprint of a fun issue. My personal favorite part is when the artist redered what Conan envisioned when the future was described to him in an early panel. Whoever originally penned this must have had something against...

      I've never been able to read this issue because for so many years it was skipped over in both Marvel's What If collections and Dark Horse's Conan collections. Pretty awesome to see Marvel making up for that by releasing this as its own one-shot.

    En1gma reviewed Tartarus #1
    The big draw here is the art, which is incredible and colorful. Not usual sci-fi aesthetics, nearly everything is incredibly decorative and overdesigned, so panels can be a bit overwhelming. Can't speak to the story yet,...

      I too liked the art; though you’re right that it was sometimes hard to follow. Detailed yet indistinct. I am enjoying the first views of the characters and intrigued to see what happens next.

    I really enjoyed this. Too bad it was a one-shot, I would have pulled the hell out of more short story books by Marvel.
