The first issue wasn't bad. Better than I thought. I really got burned out on the original series (way back) when the stories were pretty much throw-away ones. Besides the Spider-Man one, the stories have some potential. I am curious what they'll do with Taskmaster. I've always liked him. Even though he got his butt majorly kicked in Moon Knight, it was still good to see him. Let's see what they can do with him now. Taskmaster vs SHIELD? Okay. Sounds good to me (hopefully Tony Stark will be on board to get thrashed).
Marvel’s all-new cutting edge anthology series ups the ante with the action-packed Marvel Comics Presents #2, featuring Hellcat, Taskmaster, the enigmatic Weapon Omega, and the introduction of an all-new super team dedicated to Captain America! This issue’s creative team is an equally amazing assemblage, featuring the writing talents of Marc Guggenheim, Kathryn Immonen, M. Zachary Sherman and Rich Koslowski; and the penciling prowess of Dave Wilkins, Stuart Immonen and Khoi Pham. Critics and fans alike have hailed Marvel Comics Presents for it’s mix of different genres and acclaimed talent!
IGN.com’s Jesse Schedeen deemed Marvel Comics Presents a “must read” saying, “There's a lot to love within these many pages.”
SilverBulletComicBooks.Com’s Bryant Frattalone praised the series for its “Top quality art and writing talents.”
Where else will you find Hellcat, Weapon Omega, an all-new team of Marvel heroes, and Taskmaster single-handedly taking on a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier? The answer is “nowhere”…except the brand new, can’t miss Marvel Comics Presents #2!
