Adam Strange / Future Quest Special #1

Mar 29, 2017

There really doesn't seem to be much reason for this story. It doesn't illuminate anything for any of the characters and the resolution to the story doesn't illicit any emotion. I think this is a good idea for a story that just didn't find itself.

Batwoman (2017) #1

Mar 15, 2017

This is a solid first issue of a story that has a decidedly noir feel to it. The writing and artwork meld together perfectly and the beats are executed well enough to attract me to read the next issue.

Batwoman (2017) #2

Apr 19, 2017

The story continues to be compelling as it opens up new avenues with the introduction of new characters and the flashbacks to Kate's introductions to these potential allies. The artwork is great and really helps propel the story along and the VO moments are some of the best I've read so far. Continually engaging.

Dead Inside #2

Jan 24, 2017

Dead Inside is starting well. The mystery at the heart of the story is interesting and the artwork is on pace with the plotting. The plot itself moves a little too slowly in areas and there are moments that lay flat on the page, but it is an interesting story that I will continue to read.

Death Be Damned #1

Feb 8, 2017

A good, if slow start to the story. The characters have a lot of depth to them and hopefully we'll learn that in the next issue. The art is minimal and perfectly balanced to the story. The next issue will probably determine whether or not I stick with it until the end.

Death Be Damned #2

Mar 28, 2017

The continuation of this story moves well, weaving stories of love, loss and revenge together in a way that's satisfying and engaging. The artwork is really well done and there are moments that the artist captures moments of haunting beauty.

Death Be Damned #3

Apr 18, 2017

The story continues to be engrossing and engaging. The artwork works really well with the narrative and I hope the writers end the story as well as they've crafted it so far.

Flash (2016) #16

Flash (2016) #18

Mar 8, 2017

The issue had a little too much exposition, but it was a solid story. Would have liked to see the story let the artist break through a little more and deliver some quality action beats.

Flash (2016) #19

Mar 22, 2017

This is a well told story that continues to draw you in emotionally as well as treat you visually with the action. The last page of the this issue is amazing and calls back to another seminal moment in the Flash's history that could have broader repercussions.

Flash (2016) #20

Apr 12, 2017

A good standalone story that focuses on Iris, but with just enough info in the narrative and conclusion to hint at bigger issues for Barry in the future, both physically and emotionally. A good story punctuated by good artwork and intriguing nods to the future.

Flash (2016) #21

Apr 26, 2017

A great story continues to unfold in this issue. The writing reinforces the tone of the overall arc and the characters are given time to grow, especially Barry. The artwork is well done in the action scenes, but a little flat in the close ups.

Future Quest #9

Jan 25, 2017

The overall story is a slice of nostalgia that draws in the reader, but the depth of the story is what holds your interest. This is a very well done take on some classic characters. Hopefully, they will all have their moments to shine. The artwork is done very well and melds both the classic and modern in a way that makes me want to see what's next.

Future Quest #11

An enjoyable and sustaining trip down memory lane. The plot moves well and there are some good character moments. The artwork is nostalgic without being dated. A good read.

Green Lantern / Space Ghost Special #1

Mar 29, 2017

A well told super hero team up story that doesn't devolve into clich with a relatively hopeful ending. Gorgeously rendered artwork draws you in and keeps you looking from panel to panel to catch all the fine detail.

Green Lanterns #16

Feb 1, 2017

Tight story with good visuals that showcase the characters and their dynamics. Batman/Baz argument seemed forced and didn't really pay off well towards the end of the issue.

Green Lanterns #17

Feb 15, 2017

A good conclusion that sets up future events that might be a little more engaging. Satisfactory conclusion to the Batman part of the story with a change in Simon Baz's outlook that is refreshing. The artwork is very well done and serves the story well without drowning out the plot.

Green Lanterns #18

Green Lanterns #19

Mar 15, 2017

A good issue that has some forced moments but an overall good narrative. Doctor Polaris is done really well, but Jessica Cruz falls by the wayside in this issue. The art is visually well done, especially in showcasing the power of the characters.

This issue is really well done. The story doesn't push too hard. It allows the characters to have purchase. The art is fantastic and viscerally beautiful without being gaudy or brutal for the sake of brutality.

Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #17

After a really good story arc with Guy Gardner and the merging of the two corps, this story seems like filler that doesn't really move anything along or capture much interest.

Iron Fist (2017) #1

Mar 28, 2017

This is a good story that has the potential to really take Iron Fist on a journey of discovery that enhances the character overall. While there are some clich moments to be found, the overall story works as the beginning of a journey. The art is well done with great use of shadows throughout to signify the characters darker impulses taking hold.

Justice League (2016) #16

Mar 1, 2017

This is a visually stunning issue to look at. The scale and detail of the characters and the threat that they face is amazing. The plot really moves like a thriller in that it doesn't give away everything and lets the reader put the pieces of the story together at around the same pace as the characters.

Justice League (2016) #17

Mar 15, 2017

A good character driven issue that allows all the principles to have their moments. There isn't a lot of action in the issue but the exposition isn't wasted on useless information. Everything that is said drives the plot along. The action is really well done and there are panels that really pop in their use of scale.

Justice League (2016) #19

Apr 19, 2017

A good end point for this particular arc with a lot of interesting questions raised about the future of the Justice League and what impact this story has on the rest of the DC universe. The art is really well done, but Superman's motives and characterization continue to be iffy to me.

Justice League of America (2017) #2

Mar 8, 2017

The story was good, but not great. It's effective at ramping up the tension, but some of the bigger characters get diminished because of it. The art seems to do the same thing. The characters, conflicts and action all seemed small on the page, which reduced the tension and its effectiveness.

The story continues to be promising and there are some really good moments in this issue that push the limits of the characters and their motivations while also humbling them amongst the people they are trying to save. The artwork is really good with great backgrounds and scale.

Justice League of America (2017) #4

Apr 12, 2017

A solid conclusion to the story with enough nods to future storylines to be interesting. Some of the dialogue was a little heavy handed in conveying its message, but it didn't distract too much from the story. The artwork was great and, with the exception of Batman, everyone was represented well in their fight scenes.

This is a satisfying conclusion to the story. Both the plot and the artwork convey the frenetic and frenzied energy of the conclusion and it is definitely worth the read. More of this going forward.

Planet of the Apes / Green Lantern #1

The story is interesting but the exposition in many of the scenes would have been more effective had we seen the events the characters were talking about. The artwork is good, but the colors make everything flat to the point where nothing truly pops on the page.

Super Sons #1

Feb 15, 2017
