Diablo House #1

Mar 13, 2017

Diablo House #1 is a strong start for the title. The host character and the concept behind the series show great promise, with the potential for a large variety of horror tales yet to come. The writing, line art, and colors all work in tandem with one another to fully realize ideas into well-executed realities. If you're a horror fan, or even just a fan of character-driven dramas, this book is well worth your time.

Eleanor and the Egret #1

Mar 17, 2017

The confusing opening scene and wonky art drag the overall experience down a bit, but this is still a promising start to what could become a great series.

Elektra (2017) #2

Mar 22, 2017

While it loses some points for a middle that's less coherent than its beginning and end, this is a strong issue.

Elektra (2017) #3

Apr 26, 2017

With strong writing and fantastic artwork, Elektra #3 is worth every cent.

Godshaper #1

Apr 5, 2017

Godshaper #1 features some interesting ideas and decent art that are boggled down by otherwise poor and boring execution.

Justice League of America (2017) #4

Apr 12, 2017

This issue is a good time. The art is great and, though the writing has its flaws, we get some great character moments.

Though flawed, this issue is a good time. The new villain helps make this series more interesting.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #17

Mar 22, 2017

This is a decent issue that makes up for what it lacks in strong writing with a campy and fun aesthetic.

Night Owl Society #1

Apr 27, 2017

This issue isn't utterly irredeemable, but it is simply too unremarkable to be worth the price-tag. None of the characters' motivations are believable, and the art isn't good enough to make up for the poor writing.

Nightwing (2016) #18

Apr 5, 2017

Nightwing #18 is a blast. The dialogue, pacing, and artwork are all on-point.

Nightwing (2016) #19

Apr 19, 2017

This issue is solid. Though the writing isn't Seeley's best, the art team continues to deliver strong work.

Nova (2016) #5

Apr 5, 2017

This is a fun issue, especially art-wise, but the price is a bit steep given how little the plot progresses.

Royals #1

Apr 5, 2017

Royals #1 is a strong start for a new period in Inhumans history.

Royals #2

Apr 19, 2017

Royals #2 isn't as great as #1, but it's still good. Some pacing issues hinder an otherwise fun time.

Scooby Apocalypse #12

Apr 12, 2017

Though deeply flawed, this issue has its enjoyable aspects, including great monster designs and a good Scrappy-Doo side-story.

Star-Lord (2016) #4

Mar 15, 2017

An enjoyable issue--its comedic moments are effective even if they are less frequent than expected, and Zdarsky and Anka continue to flesh out a great supporting cast for Star-Lord's earthbound adventures.

Star-Lord (2016) #5

Mar 29, 2017

There's a lot of good in this issue, it just feels like the creators bit off a bit more than they could chew in such a small time frame.

Star-Lord (2016) #6

Apr 19, 2017

This series ends on a high-note; Star-Lord's final issue may also be its best.

Suicide Squad / The Banana Splits Special #1

Mar 29, 2017

This is not a good issue. Eight pages of high quality work cannot make up for thirty pages of boring writing and art that fail to live up to an interesting premise.

Teen Titans (2016) #6

Mar 22, 2017

This is a great issue. It's fun, colorful, introduces Aqualad in a promising manner, and switches the series from being a Damian Wayne book guest-starring the Teen Titans to a true Teen Titans book.

Teen Titans (2016) #7

Apr 26, 2017

This issue has a lot of fun art and potential. Its main drawback is that not enough happens to justify the $3.99 price tag.

It's not a bad issue, but it's far from a great one.

The Great Lakes Avengers #7

Apr 27, 2017

This issue's final issue is, as expected, a mixed bag, but the charming art and fantastic final pages make it worth a read.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015) #18

Mar 7, 2017

Overall, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #18 is a good time. It's just not as good of a time as the issue before it. Knowing North and Henderson though, it won't be long before this series reaches its usual heights again.

Apr 12, 2017

While this issue isn't one of the series' best, it is still a good time. North and Henderson deliver campy fun as always.

Underwinter #1

Mar 21, 2017

This is likely to be among the best debut issues of the year. One need not get any further than the first page to realize that this series is going to be something special.

Underwinter #2

Apr 25, 2017

While not quite as good as the first issue, Underwinter #2 continues to deliver stellar artwork and an intriguing narrative.
