All-Star Batman #12

Jul 27, 2017

Scott Snyder's ALL-STAR BATMAN #12 is a great, different angle on the Dark Knight. The story is harsh and unrelenting yet somehow fun at the same time. If you ever wanted to see Batman meet pirates, this is the issue for you!

Detective Comics (2016) #959

Jun 28, 2017

DETECTIVE COMICS #959 is a strong addition to a terrific run by James Tynion IV. It reintroduces strong, new characters while developing returning ones. The art by Alvaro Martinez and Raul Fernandez continues to be a hallmark for DC in general. Tynion is simply planting seeds for the future but so far "Intelligence" is an exciting arc for DETECTIVE COMICS.

Detective Comics (2016) #960

Jul 11, 2017

DETECTIVE COMICS #960 is a dip in James Tynion IV's otherwise consistently great run on this comic. The art is ever beautiful and enthralling, but the story fails to capture the reader. The highlight of this issue continues to be the great reintroduction of Zatanna, but otherwise, I hope DETECTIVE COMICS will get its groove back.

Detective Comics (2016) #961

Jul 26, 2017

James Tynion's DETECTIVE COMICS #961 is a good, if not great, continuation of his comic run. As part 4 of the "Intelligence" arc this comic delivers on great action and fantastic art. The storyline, on the otherhand, is a bit lacking. Nonetheless this issue is a pleasant read and fans of DETECTIVE COMICS can get enjoyment out of it.

Green Arrow (2016) #27

Jul 19, 2017

GREEN ARROW #27 is a fantastic example of everything that DC Rebirth has done right. Benjamin Percy writes a riveting, political story involving the Emerald Archer. Jamal Campbell jumps on board with stunning artwork. Any Arrow-nut would be remiss to not check out GREEN ARROW #27!

Nightwing (2016) #23

Jun 21, 2017

NIGHTWING #23 beautifully captures its characters, both new and old. Seeley continues a compelling story dissecting the character of Dick Grayson while the artist has shifted to Minkyu Jung to great success

Royal City #5

Jul 19, 2017

ROYAL CITY #5 is an example of what a great writer can do with original content in comic books. Jeff Lemire once again proves himself as one of the best writers in the industry with this installment of his series. His art is both quirky and weird but perfectly fits the haunting feeling that he is going for. ROYAL CITY continues to be one of the issues to look for at your local comic book store.

Superman (2016) #25

Jun 21, 2017

SUPERMAN #25 excites and thrills the reader while also leaving an emotional impact on the reader. Its touching familial themes and brilliant art along with enthralling action make this one of the best issues in Tomasi's run.

Titans (2016) #13

Jul 12, 2017

TITANS #13 is a near perfect issue. It expertly combines outstanding, action-packed visuals by V. Ken Marion with fantastic character development. Furthermore, Dan Abnett beautifully depicts the crumbling team dynamic in this issue. TITANS #13 is proof that Rebirth was a success.
