Avengers: Endgame Review

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is finally out! Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Help support a fresh new author with a fantastic read this spring season.

Like, this would forever be the gold standard of superhero movies and I honestly don’t know how Marvel Studios, or really, anyone, can top this. So let’s just get right into it.

This won’t spoil the ending, but will contain spoilers nonetheless. Deaths and the like will be omitted, but I will mention the big battle at the end. Just a heads up.

Avengers: Infinity War Review
