War Of Kings #6 (of 6)
So..I've done nothing but rant and rave about how cool this series has been and how awesome it is to see Marvel using more than just earth for stories again..well...
I'M SOOO F%&$ING MAD THAT AFTER 6 ISSUES AND ALL THE TIE-INS THAT AT THE END OF THE STORY WE HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER ISSUE TO FIND OUT IF BLACK BOLT AND VULCAN DIED??? WTF?!!? Seriously, Marvel charged $3.99 for the core "War of Kings mini", then they charge $3.99 for "Ascension" which was 3 issues and "Warriors" which was 2 issues and then with "Guardians of The Galaxy" and "Nova" ties ins for side story, we've spent enough money already. GIVE ME THE DAMN ENDING!!! Cliffhangers aside, yes it makes people want to read on and buy more stuff but come on, YOU'RE KILLING MY POCKET!!!
All in all War Of Kings has been a great story, I'm happy to see the Inhumans get their rightful place in the galaxy and it's nice to see them build off of a character that Ed Brubaker made out of 1 panel from Giant Sized X-Men. Truthfully, if your tight on cash, wait for the trade.
Overall Series 5 out of 5
Captain America Reborn #2
I'm going to be blunt about this, I really hate how Marvel is doing this. I was/am excited to see Steve Rogers come back just to see how he can affect the going's on in the Marvel Universe but really the way their going about it SUCKS! I don't like how he's trapped in a never ending cycle of past events and he now knows it. I think it's super cheesy and not very original. Bring Ultimate Cap to the 616 universe, shit..bring any Cap from any alternate universe to the 616 universe to spice things up but to have his soul(?) lost in time repeating events in his life sucks. The only redeeming part of this comic thus far is the potential to make Crossbones or The Red Skull; "Dark Captain America" and Norman Osborn leaking to the press that Sharon Carter was the one who shot and killed Captain America making her the most wanted woman on the planet. Sorry if you hate me for it but I really dislike where their going with this and I hope something changes and fast.

Destroyer # 5 (of 5)
Robert Kirkman being one of my favorite writers, I was drawn to this series but from the first issue I had the feeling I'd read it before somewhere else. I did in a book called "BRIT". Sad as it is to say, I really feel like Kirkman just re-vamped Brit for Marvel and slapped a new name on him. The concept was cool in the begining where Destroyer was an aging super-hero who was dying of Cancer and was going through his Rogues list and killing whoever was left so that when he dies, the world might be safer...That was it for like an issue then his daughter gets kidnapped, his son in law gets back in the super-hero game and the two of them fight Destroyer's arch-nemesis and win and then it's over. Destroyer retires, his son in law takes his mantle and thats it. WHACK!
Overall Series 2 out of 5
Ghost Riders Heaven On Fire #1
For those of you living under a rock and don't know anything about what's going on in Ghost Rider need to get up to date and quick. Jason Aaron came into the series late last year and has flipped the world upside down.
** Real quick during Daniel Way's story arc's; Johnny Blaze is the Ghost Rider, he thought it was a demon that was bound to his soul but he comes to find out that he's actually a creature of heaven and that he's been f*ed with this whole time as has his brother Danny Ketch. Long story short, the angel Zadkiel made them both who they are.**
So with that said Zadkiel has taken over Heaven thanks to Danny Ketch basically giving him all the Ghost Riders across the world's power and selling everyone out. Now with Zadkiel ruling heaven he's going after the anti-christ to prevent the book of revelations and write his own apocalypse. This book is hot fire! as is Ghost Rider in general. Get on this book and you'll be beyond happy.. Trust me!
5 out of 5!
Star Wars Dark Times Blue Harvest #0
YES! Funny enough, I actually just read this whole story on Myspace on Dark Horse's online comics page. It's cool they actually printed the story solo as opposed to sticking it in the Myspace Presents Dark Horse Comics TPB's. This story takes place during the "DARK TIMES" era of the SWU. This picks up post Vector and we see Dass Jennir for the first time since. He's now become a lost soul in the galaxy looking for work in shifty cantina's but the sad part is he's still got his Jedi code of honor and can't just become a hired gun or anything of the sort. Really cool stuff.. If your interested in it I'd say check out the comic online first and then buy it or if your a Star Wars buff, go get it before it sells out! This series is going to be awesome!!
