Image Comics and Its Original Big 4.

(AfroGamers.com) When Image Comics launched in 1992, it had probably the most dangerous line-up of writers, pencilers, and inkers of any publisher’s roster at the time. Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Whilce Portacio, Jim Valentino, and Todd McFarlane.

However, Insomniac Games really put their back into the storyline, DLC, and world-building for a sequel here. It makes me wonder... [Read more of this review]
