Score: 7.4/10

Silver Surfer: Black has some of the best art I’ve seen in recent memory. It’s unique, fluid and frenetic. For the art alone, this is a book you must read.

Movie Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Details: More information can be found at https://www.spidermanfarfromhome.movie/ and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6320628/

Score: 7/10

This movie was average. I read somewhere that it serves as an epilogue to Endgame and a set up on what happens next in the Marvel cinematic universe. It doesn’t do a good job as an epilogue or a set up. There is a big end credits scene with consequences for Spider-Man, but that doesn’t do much for the rest of the MCU.

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4154664/ and https://www.marvel.com/captainmarvel/

Score: 7/10

If you ignore the marketing trying to push this as an empowering feminist experience, you’ll see that Captain Marvel is yet another decent, but mediocre Marvel movie. I would place it at the same level as the first Captain America movie, Dr. Strange and Black Panther (if you ignore the racially empowering public relations effort behind Black Panther, then the movie is just okay).

TV Show Review: The Punisher, Season 2

Score: 7/10

And so ends the era of Marvel shows on Netflix. There is a lot of misinformation out there, but if you use your common sense, obviously Disney forced Netflix to end all their shows to weaken a competitor in lieu or Disney’s own online streaming service. If you ever needed evidence of what a piece of shit company Disney is, all you have to do is remember they canceled Daredevil.

Anyways, season two of The Punisher is the unlikely swan song for Netflix-Marvel shows. I found the season entertaining and in line with what you’d expect from the character of Frank Castle.

Comic Book Review: Old Man Logan

Details: First issue was published in 2016. The series ended at issue fifty, but will continue and be concluded in an unreleased subsequent series. Official site is https://www.marvel.com/comics/series/20617/old_man_logan_2016_-_present

Score: 7.6/10

When I first saw Old Man Logan was being made into a new series, I was worried that they were going to misconstrue Mark Millar’s fan favorite character and pervert it. Fortunately, that was no the case. Old Man Logan continues the story of an old Wolverine being time displaced into the present Marvel continuity.
