WAR OF THE REALMS #1
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Russell Dauterman
Colorist: Matthew Wilson
Letterer: VC’s Joe Sabino
Publisher: Marvel Comics 10/10 SPOILERS AHEAD It's been six years since Jason Aaron started his epic run on Thor. When all is said and done, Aaron will surely go down as having written arguably, the best Thor run, next to Walt Simonson. From his tales of Thor Odinson wielding the hammer, to Thor becoming Unworthy and Jane Foster taking up the mantle of Thor.
Bryan Hill continues to push the envelope with each new series he releases. KILL MONGER: BY ANY MEANS from Marvel could have been just another tie-in for a character ij a successful movie. Instead, Hill delivered a deep exploration into the character, in one of Marvels best series this past year. Over at Vertigo, Bryan has created one of the best crime comics to come out of the publisher since 100 BULLETS. It is one of the most relevant comics on the stands right now. Dealing
Ryan Ottley has long been, in my opinion one of the best artists in the industry. His work is full of energy and his battle scenes are the best, not to mention the goriest. He first broke into the industry teaming up with Robert Kirkman on INVINCIBLE. The series ran for 144 issues, 127 of which Ryan illustrated. It was his work on this book that instantly made me a fan. While it was sad to see that book end this past year, I was thankful we didn't have to wait long for his ne

While fighting for his life, he dreamt that he finally defeated Wilson Fisk only to realize that he dreamt it and h

Jim Cheung has been entertaining comic book fans for years with his art. The majority of his career is synonymous for working on titles at Marvel like X-FORCE, AVENGERS: CHILDRENS CRUSADE, and YOUNG AVENGERS. When CrossGen formed in 2000, Jim brought his talents over there and helped launch SCION. It was a series with fantasy elements while also tying in to the overall CrossGen universe. Of all the books to come out of the company, Scion was by far one of my favorite titles.

VENOM Vol. 1 Writer: Donny Cates Artist: Ryan Stegman Inker: JP Mayer Colorist: Frank Martin Published by: Marvel Comics 10/10 I first got introduced to Donny Cates through his series "God Country" from Image Comics. I became a fan from the first issue. From there he did an unbelievable balls to the wall run on "Thanos", which was another hit. So when Marvel announced that he was taking over Venom, I didn't hesitate to add it to my pull list. The final issue of the first arc
