COMIC BOOK REVIEW: All-New Marvel NOW! – Original Sin #1

Coming off the back of issue 0,  here comes the first installment of an 8 part mini series. With an all-star cast in this years first big event since “Infinity” (which in my opinion was so weak!); lets dive in.

When getting stuck into it felt like a right old English style “who did it?” Murder Mystery, if my memory serves me right I don’t think MARVEL has ever done? Picking up on the strong points it has to be the back and forth dialog. Fun conversations in the dinner with 4 of Marvels big hitters reminiscing about the past. Later on in the issue with a real “fantasy football” team-ups with the likes of Dr. Strange, The Punisher, Moon Knight, and Gamora. Oh yes we are in for some heavy hitting soon!

Moving back onto the art, Mike Deodato has drawn some outstanding images. From the close-up shot of Fury with the shading to The Watchers lifeless body with blood spatter floating of into space.

When you get to the action your featuring Spidey and the Thing going toe-to-toe with “The Mindless One”. The way this altercation pans out, you start to really feel for the creature. Having known nothing to knowing someone else’s pain and suffering and feeling things someone else has felt, then having to endure it is too much for anyone or anything living on this Earth.

**Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven’t read this comic skip this next bit!**

The end page has to be the most visually shocking thing I’ve seen done by Marvel in a while. A shadowed figure holding the watchers eyes! It really adds to the who the hell did it?!

To wrap this up I’ve got to say I am very impressed with the first issue and im glad JM has given me this to continue with reviewing. I’ll be sticking with it all the way! It is worth every penny (or cent) but if your like me buy a few issues and read it all at once so you get a real buzz for what’s going on; but if you get itchy fingers just go ahead and read it ! This is another 5/5 horns for The Original Sin!

So let me know what you think and reach me on Instagram or Tweet Me!

So for next time Geekazoids. I am Hamid Hojabr.  All ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!
