This book seemed bizarre to me. All of these alternate universe characters feel like red-shirts in Star Trek; I don’t care about them. This book really just reeks of that crossover-tie-in funk that bogs down so much of what Marvel publishes. There isn’t really anything substantial in the book even worth writing about – a really lousy comic. I will in no way shape or form be reading any more of this book. – IP

I did not like this at all. I don’t want to play your damn game and I don’t want to read your confusing tie-in. – BC

I’m so confused. I thought even with multiverses collapsing, the Marvel Movie U and the ANAD Marvel were separate things. Is that Robert Downey Iron Man? I don’t see this book capturing a wide audience. I don’t think the TV show’s audience is really hankering for more B-listers and primetime tropes in comic form. This is some classically lame, cross-promotional baby shit. Ugly drawings. Boo boo, Peralta. – RF

All New All Different Marvel – Week 15

The All New All Different Marvel Universe is in full swing, and week fifteen of the relaunch gives us seventeen titles, including one premiere.

Marc Guggenheim’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes a huge step forward in integrating Marvel’s Cinematic Universe into the All New comic book universe, right down to the Henry Hayes/Mike Peterson Deathlok and an apparently necessary exploration of Phil Coulson’s sex life.

This week also concludes the Secret Wars event, finally putting a bow on the prior Marvel multiverse. The final chapter in this nine-issue limited series says hello to the All New status quo (in a surprisingly straightforward and heartwarming manner), while bidding adieu to Jonathan Hickman.
