Review: A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1

A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1

Marvel’s big summer event is gearing up and officially starts with A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1, a “zero issue” in a way that gets readers caught up on what’s going on. The event will pit the Eternals against the X-Men with the Avengers caught in-between.

A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1 is rather interesting as it focuses completely on the Eternals. We’re taken through their rather complicated factions and history, setting up the conflict to come. We’re introduced to a people whose role has been recently shaken but whose views still seem rather black and white.

Druig is now the Prime Eternal, guiding his people towards the future. He still sees their role as protecting the planet from deviation. What greater deviation is there than mutants who can live forever? For that, they must be exterminated. No debate. No real reason why. It just is. Make it so.

Writer Kieron Gillen takes us through the various groups and individuals all jockeying in an opening that feels almost Shakespearean in its duplicitousness. Secrets feel like they’re part of the every day when it comes to the Eternals with each individual set in their role and view of what must be done. There’s something rather classic in how “right” they feel they are. Maneuvering has already begun by so many of them as they plot the Eternals’ and world’s future. At no point is the case really made that Druig is right in his view. It feels like Gillen has planted the flag as to who is right and who is wrong in the conflict to come.

The art by Pasqual Ferry is a bit mixed. While overall it’s nice, there’s some very noticeable head scratching moments. A character is on the left and then suddenly on the right, then back on the left with no explanation. It’s jarring. Eyes feel like they’re bulging out of a head. There’s small details with Ferry’s work that add up. Dean White handles the colors which are used well as the settings change around and Clayton Cowles lettering adds dramatic flair at the right times.

A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1 is an interesting opening. It leaves no room to debate who is right and who is wrong. It treats the action Druig takes so nonchalantly as to make it feel like it’s not a big deal. It just kind of is. Maybe with what’s to come in the first issue it’ll flow a bit better but as presented, the comic doesn’t get me excited for what’s to come, it sets up what feels like a rather predictable narrative to fill our summer months.

The Opening Salvo of Judgement Day Rocks the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals

JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING! Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Valerio Schiti’s upcoming Marvel Comics epic, A.X.E.: Judgement Day, will define the summer and now, Marvel fans can get their first look at covers, interior artwork, and more in a special teaser trailer!

The pieces of the upcoming event will fall into place in June’s A.X.E.: Eve of Judgement #1, a prelude issue where Gillen will team up with artist Pasqual Ferry to present the first shot of the apocalyptic conflict to come. After that, the saga will be told across six explosive issues in A.X.E.: Judgement Day, the main event series launching in July, as well as tie-in issues unleashed across the Marvel Universe. An extraordinary odyssey that will leave a profound emotional impact on the Marvel mythology, A.X.E.: Judgement Day will tie together radical plot developments from the last few years including the X-Men’s discovery of immortality, the Eternals’ newfound knowledge about their purpose, and the Avengers’ assembling a powerful lineup at their base in the body of a fallen Celestial.

The Avengers have become a more powerful global force than ever from their base inside a long-dead Celestial. The X-Men have achieved a form of immortality on their utopian island nation of Krakoa. And the Eternals have begun a new cycle of life as they continue their sworn mission to eliminate the Deviants. But when the Eternals learn that mutantkind itself is a form of excess deviation, a vicious assault on Krakoa ensues – with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes trapped in the middle. Years of tension lead to a volcanic eruption as two worlds burn!

Review: Maestro: World War M #1

Maestro: World War M #1

When people in power become comfortable, they tend to feel an air of invincibility. They start to feel like they are untouchable. That often leads them to mistreat the people under them. They often change for the worse.

When I was in the military, I saw the devolution often. The ones who would got promoted often decried the current leadership. When they got promoted, it became about self preservation, which lead them to forsaking those around them along the way. This is where they stop seeing their friends as well as their enemies. Blindspots become overwhelming. In the opening of Peter David’s final chapter the saga of Maestro, Maestro: World War M #1, unseen threats come to take the tyrant off his perch.

We are taken to a simulation within the Kremlin in Moscow where Maestro looks to settle a score with Abomination. The battle is brutal resulting in a tragic ending.  We soon find out MODOK had been keeping Abomination is stasis this whole time. They live in a world where Maestro rules over the survivors from a nuclear apocalypse. The issue takes us further into the world catching up with Doom and Namor and by the issue’s end, another hero for the Maestro to contend with. The issue is a solid set up showing us the key players of the story to come and reminding us of Maestro’s dominance.

Overall, Maestro: World War M #1 is an excellent first chapter to the ongoing saga of Maestro. The story by David is astounding. The art by Germán Peralta and Pasqual Ferry is amazing. Altogether, the debut issue proves just how formidable a villain Maestro is in this final chapter.
