Publisher’s Summary: “LOST IN THE WILDS OF HEAVEN,” Part Three Kadyn’s powers continue to grow! He can now survive in the vacuum of space, fly on his own, and unleash great mind-bending energies. Meanwhile, Gil thinks he’s found refuge on a planet—until the local plant life tries to murder him!


Review

Seas of Stars #3 continues the fantasy with a gorgeous tour of space that expertly juggles the two viewpoints to its story. What took two issues to establish, hits an absolute stride here. Aaron and Hallum really lean into the fantastical elements of the story this time around, showcasing Kadyn’s powers as something not only unusual (as the hilarious side characters commentate on throughout), but extraordinary. It makes for an exciting read, especially knowing there’s more to come, and watching Gil jerry-rig his way through the galaxy offers an entirely different set of enjoyment. The team knows how to balance its story well, and look amazing doing it. 

The issue looks stunning; Green’s artwork continues to provide a varied and breathtaking look at the Sea of Stars universe. The writing, as always, is charismatic, and every line is character-focused, propelling readers through the issue.

Sea of Stars only becomes more fun to read as it goes on.

The Bottom Line:

The third issue of Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum’s sci-fi adventure continues to impress with spectacular art and inspiring writing.

“WandaVision” is Stranger Than I Imagined: Episode 1 & 2 Review and Recap

Sure, every piece of content that falls under the MCU umbrella ultimately serves it—that’s how a cinematic universe works. But is WandaVision more than just an exercise in extended stage-setting?

First Appearance of Vision, Part 1: The Golden Age

Before the term “Cinematic Universe” was coined and popularized, before the comics industry crippled itself by releasing variant foil covers in an already oversaturated market, before Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel, the Vision made his comic book debut. But this mysterious hero is far different than the one seen in the Avengers’ films and Disney+’s upcoming series, WandaVision.

Bloodshot (2019-) #10 Review

Bloodshot (2019) # 10 is a fine spot to jump into the ongoing trials of the nanite infected Ray Garrison. There’s plenty of action in this issue and a great sense of where the story is heading.
