Trapped outside time in the Dark Dimension since the days of World War II, the Soldier Supreme returns, a mage out of time, to find a world unlike any he has ever known!

Review: Analog Vol. 1

Currently in development for film at Lionsgate with John Wick Director Chad Stahelski attached!

2024: the world has been mass-doxxed, and the internet is only for porn. Every email, photo, and document ever sent rains down out of the cloud, and only a fool would send a secret over the web. This is the era of the “Paper Jockeys”: armed couriers with a briefcase of secrets who’ll get your sensitive information around the globe or die trying. Human punching bag Jack McGinnis and his partner Oona are two of the best couriers in the business. For a price, they’ll move your sensitive information where it needs to go as they fight off fascists, criminals, and spies.

Review: Infinity Wars #4

Requiem is victorious. Infinity has been warped. Reality only has one hope.

The world is warped and what will those who know the truth do to stop Gamora? This is the issue where the heroes gather and reality unveiled before the attack begins.

Writer Gerry Duggan gives us a story that’s needed, I’m just left wondering if it needed an entire issue. Infinity Wars #4 isn’t bad, it’s just a transition issue for the greater story. It’s exactly that moment when the heroes gather. It’s just it’s the entire issue. What could happen in a few pages instead is dragged out.

But, what is a very decompressed segment, is still pretty engaging. A lot of that is due to Duggan who adds a dash of humor as the heroes discover they’ve been mashed together. There’s also some fun to see combinations as they’re revealed one at a time.

That’s the highlight of the issue, the reader getting to see what crazy combos the creative team has come up with. What heroes go with whom and if you can guess the combination before they’re split apart. That’s the real draw and honestly not a whole lot else. Most of the issue could easily have been wrapped up and included in other issues, maybe having expanded them a bit. It’s not bad, it’s just a lack of the excitement other issues have been filled with.

The issue also becomes flawed in what Requiem has allowed. There’s massive flaws and for someone who can control everything and do anything, it feels a bit like when the villain goes on and on or tells the hero their plan. It’s a bit eye rolling to be honest.

Mike Deodato, Jr.‘s art along with the color of Frank Martin and lettering of Cory Petit is fantastic and the real draw. The designs for these new characters are great. And, the page layouts are something different as well. There’s some solid work that keeps a story that’d otherwise feel slow moving. The details are what kept me interested

The issue is fine as part of the greater story but on its own, it lacks a bit. The art is solid and a draw but the issue feels like it’s filler before we get back to the good stuff. What happens is important, it just didn’t need to take an entire issue.
