Well, ever since I got my Marvel Unlimited subscription I had really been avoiding reading X-Anything. I’m a little conflicted about this storyline. Honestly I think the premise of the story is beyond stupid but it actually didn’t end up being as bad as I thought it might be. There are so many storylines that I’ve missed over the years I don’t know if I’ll ever catch up but I might go ahead and try to continue reading some X-Men titles again starting with this title and branching out.
Likeable retelling of some early Daredevil stories. The updated art and style makes these a bit more palatable to modern sensibilities. Sort of like a what if those stories had happened in the age of cellphones and the internet. I would have rated this higher if it had been a bit more consistent. Several of the stories are just excerpts and you feel like you’ve missed something important.
The art is nice but I’m not in love with it. Still this is a nice book to have if you like Daredevil and it would be a great read for anyone who wants to sample some early Daredevil history.
I read this on Marvel Unlimited and here are a few screenshots:
The third panel on this page is pretty frightful if you ask me. Maybe it’s the way his teeth are so heavily outlined it sort of makes it look like jagged shark teeth or something. Maybe it’s the eyes…
This page was nice looking, that’s a pretty classic looking Daredevil pose.
And this one was just sort of morbidly funny to me because of the crazy villain The Spot. I mean he looks and is named like he’s a dalmatian puppy, but that is one sick power he has…
This review is for the Graphic Audio Edition of Ant-Man: Natural Enemy by Jason Starr.
I’ll say I’ve liked all of the Graphic Audio Editions I’ve listened too. There is just something fun about the full voice casts, sound effects and style of these audio books. They might actually add something to the story for me.
In this story Ant-Man and his daughter are placed into protective custody by the FBI because a criminal has escaped that he had testified against in the past. It’s a pretty straightforward superhero story but it lost two stars because of the overuse of his very obnoxious daughter as a plot device.
She takes up and takes over way too much of the story… and I truly started to wish her dead. We could at least give her a dramatic death couldn’t we? But no. She’s allowed to whine non stop throughout the book. I kept thinking for gods sake send this narcissistic little hooch back to live with her mother already. Her dad just takes all the crap she dishes out, because he’s attached to his spawn I guess.
Despite my little rant I did like it and the parts with Ant-Man and his dating woes were fun to read about.
