When Futures Collide 0

I have long wondered what comic book aliens would be like in the Star Trek universe. I am also a huge fan of comic cross overs. So, when I heard about this book, it was a dream come true for me. I'm a regular reader of the Legion and a huge Star Trek fan (though I prefer the 24th century), so for me all the characters here are more than familiar, but the book does a great job of introducing the cast for those who are new to either universe.The story is only getting started, but it has the making...

It Ain't Pretty But... 0

StoryThe opening is a little confusing as two new characters, Osprey and the soon-to-be Swan are introduced with very little explanation. It does improve from there though, moving at a fairly brisk pace through the story. We're given a little more on the backgrounds of Hawk and Dove, which I'm sure will be helpful for new readers. This is only the second issue and it does feel like it's building both an exciting story and some interesting mythology, even if the issue on it's own is good but not ...

On Earth 2 this book would be awful... 0

The combined efforts of Scottish legends Frank Quitely and Grant Morrison come together for one of the most entertaining Justice League stories of recent years. While the plot lacks the complexity of some of Morrison's JLA run, this isn't a bad thing. The plot moves quickly enough to be a great ride and allows for some nice twists. Like any story involving "evil twins", this contains some character study of DC's big three. This would not be a Morrison story though if it did not feature some ques...

An Emotional Conclusion 0

Legendary artist, Alex Ross, teams with writer, Kurt Bursiek, to deliver the history of the Marvel Universe from the perspective of one of it's more normal inhabitants. Issue 4 deals with a more personal story than previous issues as it looks into the life and death of Gwen Stacy. Sheldon helps Gwen investigate the death of her father, blamed on Spider-Man by the media, and in doing so sees the Marvels with the awe that she does as Atlantis invades New York. The death of Gwen Stacy was something...

Do You Need the World to Actually End? 0

Legendary artist, Alex Ross, teams with writer, Kurt Bursiek, to deliver the history of the Marvel Universe from the perspective of one of it's more normal inhabitants. Issue 3 deals with the Avengers and Fantastic Four saving the planet from annihalation. This all culminates with the arrival of Galactus and Sheldon's increasing disbelief at New York's lack of gratitude to the heroes that defend her. The artwork here is stronger than earlier issues, though that may be because of how spectacular ...

The Greatest Show on Earth 0

Legendary artist, Alex Ross, teams with writer, Kurt Bursiek, to deliver the history of the Marvel Universe from the perspective of one of it's more normal inhabitants. Issue 2 deals with the arrival of the beloved Avengers and the Fantastic Four as well as the feared X-Men. Again, we observe the action from the sidelines with the hopes and fears of New York's ordinary citizens. During the creation of this project, Ross and Bursiek realised that the wedding of Reed Richards and Sue Storm must ha...

In the beginning. 0

Legendary artist, Alex Ross, teams with writer, Kurt Bursiek, to deliver the history of the Marvel Universe from the perspective of one of it's more normal inhabitants. Issue 1 deals with Marvel's "Golden Age", from inventor Phineas Horton's creation, The Human Torch (not Johnny Storm) to Captain America and the superhuman intervention in World War 2. There are numerous references to events in a number of comics that many readers won't be aware off as they were first printed in the late 30s and ...
