CBR Review: Malignant Man #1

I recently reviewed Malignant Man #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Somewhere in this comic is a good idea. Man gets cancer, later finds out that that’s a good thing and gives him powers of some kind? That has potential. Unfortunately, Malignant Man squanders all of it by presenting a by-the-notes rundown of this sort of story: man seem hopeless, inciting incident occurs, mysterious bad guys want him dead, he’s rescued by even more mysterious do-gooder who knows all about him and will reveal all in a shocking manner. It’s clichéd, uninspired storytelling coupled with clunky, laughable dialogue, and art that’s too good for what it has to draw."
