Snowfall #1 Review: Climate Change, War, & the Death of Innocence in this First Look

Times (and climates) are-a-changin’ with global warming and more extreme weather being thrown in to the Earth’s mix.

As a Marvel Legends toy collector, I’m excited for the direction Hasbro has taken with their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this year.
