Ranking the All New All Different Marvel: 30 – 21

Uncanny Inhumans

Charles Soule & Steve McNiven
I was really surprised that I liked this book as much as I did. Having Kang (a favorite of mine) as the villain also makes it feel more like an Avengers book than the other Avengers I’ve read in this relaunch. Time-hopping madness with some heroics and inter-team drama made this pretty fun. Will definitely read more. – BC

Great mix of classic Inhumans, new ones (nuHumans?), and interesting supporting characters like Beast and Torch. Looking forward to more, and happy to see McNiven lend his talents to the flagship title for this newly placed cornerstone of the ANAD Marvel Universe. – MMDG

International Iron Man

Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev
I’ll pretty much give anything Bendis does a fair shake, and even though this first issue is objectively mediocre, I enjoyed it. Alex Maleev’s art lends itself to Tony’s dark, mysterious past; I do, however, prefer Iron Man to have more color, more emphasis on boisterous mechanical designs, and an air of levity. This feels more like a Daredevil book, or even Hawkguy, and while I applaud Bendis for doing something more thoughtful with an action hero, it’s not something I really need. In the opening panel, one of the few action pieces in the whole book, a clever henchman jokes that perhaps the disabled Iron Man is “contemplating the life decisions that led him to this moment,” so I know Bendis knows that I know that he’s covering familiar ground, and his awareness makes me think he’s going to do his best to throw some curves and tell a good story. BMB is a master of dialogue and cinematic storytelling, and while I think he effectively builds an intriguing past and a compelling relationship between Tony and Cassandra, I would rather see Iron Man fighting Doom or organizing Avengers. I will keep reading this book, but maybe not recommend it as strongly as Spider-Man. – RF

All New All Different Marvel – Week 14

Happy New Year, Marvel fans! The first new comics Wednesday of 2016 brought a bevy of All New All Different books to the shelf, including three series premieres.

Among the new titles is a return of G. Willow Wilson’s A-Force, and Singularity, who may be one of the only characters in the new universe to have any memory of the Secret Wars Battleworld reality. Also, the back-up bonus feature in premiere of Joe Kelly’s new ongoing Spider-Man/Deadpool series is the first issue of the new Vision comic in its entirety. If there’s anyone who hasn’t picked up one of the the best books, not just of the ANAD relaunch, but of the year, then it’s conveniently waiting for you there in the back of your snarky red-costumed buddy cop caper.
