Action Comics (2016) #975

Mar 8, 2017

Overall Action Comics has entered their best arc yet, and it's worth reading this, if for nothing, at least to find out where some of the threads of Rebirth are going!

Action Comics (2016) #976

Mar 22, 2017

Overall Superman Reborn was a fun story as a whole, and even though it ended up not being as essential as some other Superman stories, it did have some interesting moments especially with the Rebirth mystery. It did taper off at the end though, and instead of having a memorable ending, it did seem a bit clich. But no one will be really disappointed with this story if you are a fan of Big Blue.

Batman (2016) #18

Mar 1, 2017

Overall Batman Rebirth continues to be one of if not the best Rebirth title, they are pretty much in a dead heat tie with the entire Trinity, but this is one of those books, that should be in your pull, at least this particular arc. That is one of the best things about the way all three books are written so far, each arc is truly for itself, and is not dependent on the knowledge of the character before hand, so if you just want read just particular story of these characters, you can do that!

Batman (2016) #20

Apr 5, 2017

There's not much else to say about how good this book – and this arc – was. It was talky at points, butvillains always talk too much before the confrontation. What worked here is that Batman was playing off it perfectly and there was no wasted momentum. Bane did not stop to give a grandiose speech – he told the story as he was causing chaos. So if you are a fan of Batman, do yourself a favor and pick this series up.

Batman (2016) #21

Apr 19, 2017

Overall, Tom King is continuing to master this character, and at this point, has shown to be the writer that Batman deserves to continue the great storytelling of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. Don't miss this issue if you are a Batman fan! Tom King has also managed to make this a good jumping-on point for new readers that have not read the Rebirth Batman before, and that is never a small feat!

Batwoman (2017) #1

Mar 16, 2017

Overall, this book is a great introduction to the character for the new readers. It also keeps a lot of elements of the character from previous runs. This was one of the books that did not need to be reinvented really, as the character worked well before. What the book needed though, was focus, like many other New 52 titles, and even though it gets too wordy at times, I believe this was a very good introduction to the new adventures of Kathy Kane!

Champions #6

Mar 1, 2017

Overall as Isaid book is very fun so far, and if what Waid and Ramos want to make this an Impulse type book, I am all for it, as that and Young Justice books were some of my favorite, for that type of genre, but sometimes I have a feeling it wants to be way more serious, and mixing those genres to those extremes, is just not feasible, both for a writer, and for the reader, as they would not know what to expect in the next issue. Another thing about this book so far at least, there is no cohesion, we had two issues that were kind of tied together, but rest of them, were all stand alone's. If you are a fan of Waid and Ramos you won't be disappointed but if you are looking for an epic adventure, look elsewhere. I personally think this book is very fun, for what it is, but as i mentioned before it does need a bit of a more cohesion.

Champions #7

Apr 8, 2017

All of this makes Champions one of the most fun books Marvel has. It is also one of the most diverse books that they have with pretty much every minority covered here. The way that last part of it is treated as footnote is especially important, as what this book does teach us is that there are no such things as minorities we are all in the same fight to make our world better. And it is because of this message, I recommend this book to everyone.

Detective Comics (2016) #952

Mar 8, 2017

This book continues to impress in both writing and art departments, even though sometimes it can go into a little bit of a jumping the shark territory. But if you like Batman books, you will enjoy this story, but if you cannot get past the point of some villains from Batman mythos being heroes, now then it might not be for you.

Detective Comics (2016) #953

Mar 22, 2017

Overall, Detective Comics continues to be a really fun book for fans of the extended Bat Family. It is a book for the fans of the characters. Cassandra Cain is slowly becoming one of my favorite characters again because of this book, and considering I did not particularly care for her previous run, that is quite a feat.

Flash (2016) #21

Apr 26, 2017

Overall this still remains interesting story as long as the expectations are curved a little bit especially after this chapter. It is going to be interesting to see how Tom King writes a follow up the great finale we have here as well! Button story continues to be intriguing however, it would be nice if it would pick up a pace a little bit.

Inhumans Prime #1

Mar 30, 2017

Overall, this was a decent one-shot. If this book is any indication, upcoming Inhumans stories might be interesting rides. Get hyped for the next era of Inhuman books.

IvX #6

Mar 8, 2017

Overall this issue served a pretty good closing point for this versus chapter, even though at the end it did seem a bit shallow in a sense not so much the writing is bad in these books per say, it is more a question of just how much freedom these writers really have as in the greater scope of the Marvel universe. It seems like Marvel's answer to everything is events events events, prior to this we had Civil War II, and now after this we will have Secret Empire. It would be good if they would give some time for these events to bare fruit sort of speak, because ultimately if you keep changing the status quo every few months, none of this really matters. But if you are a fan of X-men or Inhumans you will get a kick out of this book, just don't expect anything earth shattering.

Joyride #11

Mar 29, 2017

Overall, this chapter brings us one step closer to the final chapter of the Act I of the story. As of this writing there is not a plan for Act II, but one can hope it will arrive as everyone would enjoy revisiting the world of Joyride and the continuing adventures of Dewydd, Uma and Catrin! If you haven't picked it up yet, if you haven't read the other issues, run don't walk, to the store and pick this up!

Justice League / Power Rangers #3

Mar 8, 2017

Overall this book is an interesting crossover, even though I don't see what the full point of it really was. It has a bigger canvas of characters to play for sure, especially with lot of these characters still not making their Rebirth debut. It is certainly a book made for younger readers, and mostly for the fans of Power Rangers, if they want to continue seeing the adventures of these characters, but other than that, the book is really just another crossover that should not exist. So for those people that just want to get a little bit more colorful take on Justice League, or Power Rangers, this book is for you, anyone else look somewhere else for your entertainment!

Kamandi Challenge #3

Mar 29, 2017

Overall the third chapter of the challenge is the best yet, mostly because it does feel most like Kirby. Sometimes it is over the top and does not make much sense, however, it is a fun book, and Amanda Conner's art is always nice to see!

Kamandi Challenge #4

Overall, this issue is not going to sway readers either way, so if you were not reading this book, you most likely won't start now, but for those who are picking this up, it is a crazy fun time.

With that I can't recommend this issue enough, sure it doesn't have a lot of traditional super hero action, but it has it where it counts!

Nightwing (2016) #16

Mar 1, 2017

Overall this book is honestly not for everyone, but if you are a fan of Nightwing or Bat Family in general, do pick it up, it is worth reading, it was never meant to be on a grand scale like some other books in Rebirth line, this book is more about self discovery and so far Seeley has hit all the right notes, as Nightwing continues trying to correct the wrongs that have happened ever since the events of Forever Evil. That's really where the biggest strength of this book lies for the fans of this character, is that of all the characters, I could say Batman excluded, is Nightwing is just back to being old school Dick Grayson, and there is nothing wrong with that!

Nightwing (2016) #17

Mar 16, 2017

If you enjoy Batman characters overall, or just want an overall fun book to read, this is it. This book doesnt try too hard to be cerebral, it knows who the core audience of the book is, and within those limits it succeeds greatly! Besides its always great to see Damian/Dick squabbles!

Nightwing (2016) #18

Apr 5, 2017

Overall this a different kind of Bat Family book. It's grimey and dirty and about Dick's self discovery and where he belongs . It is the Dick's relationships that make him a more interesting character that most as he is still coming into his own even though he has been doing this for a while. It is a fun book even though not for everyone.

Nova (2016) #5

Apr 5, 2017

Overall this is a really good first arc to the series with the book having a lot of potential. Hopefully this is going to be one book that is not going to be bogged down by countless incoming Marvel cross overs, as Spider-man and also Ms Marvel did suffer from during the Civil War era. As much Nova was part of that, he did not get bogged down by the events and can continue to have an independent story from the major going on's in the Marvel universe. Being this is one of the rare books that does this, it is worth picking up, even though it is not without it flaws.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) #8

Mar 8, 2017

Overall, this is a pretty solid chapter in this series. There are definitely some tropes here in a background story, but it was portrayed well, and it does seem like we are going to get a pretty interesting arc going forward, so for that I believe this chapter was a success. We also had a book done by Kenneth Rocafort so that's always a plus. But if you don't like these characters already, this book won't change your mind.

Superman (2016) #18

Mar 1, 2017

If you like Superman books, if you just like Tomasi/Gleason dynamic you will not be disappointed, as we have both here, and the future is bright for the Boy in Blue. As I keep saying about the Batman and Wonder Woman books, DC has really pulled the big guns here, making sure that their Trinity is done correctly, and so far all three of those books were stellar. This is something that should be on your pull list!

Superman (2016) #19

Mar 15, 2017

For anyone that was disappointed by Superman runs of years past, be at ease. This book brings everything that made the Man of Steel the beloved character he has beenthrough all of these decades: it's hopeful, action packed and tender all at the same time. Everyone is able to find something to like in this book. And that is probably one of the biggest reasons this particular run has been so successful –at the end of the day it's a genuine family story.

Superman (2016) #20

Superman (2016) #21

Apr 20, 2017

Overall Superman continues it's stellar run in the Rebirth line up as the book to get. As a person that has truly never collected Superman before this run, and have read only some of the bigger Superman stories that came out, I can easily say this remains to be a most consistently great book probably out on the market right now. DC Trinity is certainly in full swing and it looks like there is no slowing down anytime soon!

Teen Titans (2016) #6

Mar 22, 2017

Overall, Teen Titans #6 is a fun read. We were introduced to a Young Justice character, whose introduction is handled admirably and does not seem forced. On the other hand, the cast is slowly growing, so it looks like some of the characters might be taking a backseat to others from time to time. That is fine for now, but the book is called Teen Titans, and being a team book, everyone should be getting equal page space.

Teen Titans (2016) #7

Apr 26, 2017

Overall, this is a decent, if a bit rushed, ending to the reintroduction of Jackson Hyde. The book could have benefited from another issue. It is not by any means a deal breaker, though. I for one am excited to see what kind of adventures the Teen Titans get in going forward.

Titans (2016) Annual #1

Apr 3, 2017

Overall, this Annual is very solid edition to the Titans story, as well as a greater Rebirth line up. If you are already picking up Titans rest assured its in the spirit of that book. Also pick it up if you want to get another piece of a Rebirth puzzle.

Titans (2016) #9

Mar 9, 2017

Overall, Titans has been a stellar book even though it did suffer some of the Origin Story problems. Now that that portion of it is taken care of its nice to see the team that a lot of people have grown up with, even though some of the other team members are part of the younger Teen Titans book. What does work is that the characters and relationships between them are well balanced, and everyone serves a purpose in a book. If you were disappointed by Teen Titans of 52 eras, you should be rejoicing as Titans are back!

X-Men: Gold (2017) #1

Apr 10, 2017

X-Men Gold is a good introduction for the new readers that have not picked up an X-Men book lately while also being good for old readers that have not become too jaded with the status quo. It's those in the middle–the jaded readers who do not like all of the major changes to this property–that will be hard to win over, but if X-Men Gold can sustain a continuous run, it has a chance to grab them too.
