Marvel Nemesis

“Marvel Nemesis” scores an “A” from has given its highest marks to Issue One of “Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects,” written by Greg Pak with art by Renato Arlem. An excerpt:

The mysterious six-page prologue immediately pulls you into the story so that by the time Ben Grimm appears on page seven you’ve begun to wonder if this is going to be a superhero book or not, but you don’t care if it isn’t. It also features something we actually don’t get much of anymore: a nice introspective sequence with Ben in which we discover that even teenagers hold him in some amount of disregard, and we’re reminded that there’s a very human heart underneath that rocky exterior. Then the real fun begins. While Pak does an excellent job with Ben, his real triumph is Elektra – this is the Elektra that Jennifer Garner should have played, not that humorless woman with the pouty lips we ended up with.

Marvel Nemesis likes “Marvel Nemesis” on “Marvel Nemesis” Issue One, which hit stores Wednesday:

Marvel does a videogame crossover that could be just a cheaply hyped book. But they put Greg Pak on the writing and the mysterious Renato Arlem on the art, making for something creepier and more clever than it deserves to be.


Kudos from gives “X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong” Issue Five this week’s “Sweetest Cover” prize and offers the following review:

The swansong for this saga is certainly the best issue of the five and is handled quite nicely. It’s a tad sentimental, but then, so is every great comic-book drama.
