West Coast Avengers #1 review

Land sharks are attacking Santa Monica. Massive-jawed, lumbering brutes with meat on their mind. Luckily, there’s a superhero around.

Fantastic Four #1 (2018) review

It’s back, proclaims the cover. The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine! I must have picked up the wrong book, because even allowing for hyperbole, Fantastic Four #1 is far from that.
