IGN likes “Skaar” #11

An excerpt from Jesse Schedeen’s review:

Pak provides a nice little glimpse of human Skaar and his first real interaction with humans. In some ways Skaar is being positioned to become more like his father, but he also displays a boundless rage and bloodlust that sets him apart. All in all, this issue provides a lot of quality payoff for seeds that have slowly been germinating since the aftermath of WWH.

Pendragon’s Post plugs “War Machine” #6

An excerpt:

Overall a great read. This book makes you think, while maintaining the expected excitement and thrills of the super hero genre. The book also uses my preferred form of comic book art: striking the ideal balance between beautiful craft and realism. When I read a comic book I want to be transported to another reality, but I still want to be able to suspend my disbelief enough to think that hey, this could have been our world.
