All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #4

Jun 25, 2017

And hey, at least this series is safe from Marvel's early cancellation chop, so we'll get a creative team capable to telling a full story for a while yet.

All-Star Batman #9

Apr 19, 2017

Intriguing issues bringing twists within the context of the story, and also the nature of Batman stories.

A great start to a new story arc, introducing interesting elements and mystery to go on.

All-Star Batman #11

Jun 23, 2017

Overall, All Star Batman continues to try things different with Batman and give us stories that feel different but also add interesting new wrinkles to the mythos of the Dark Knight.

Batgirl (2016) #7

Jan 26, 2017

Overall, Batgirl #7 is a return to form for the title, not that it had fallen into bad form in the interim. But with a refocus, and a recenter, this return to Burnside feels as interesting and fresh as it did the first time.

Batman (2016) #22

May 4, 2017

A huge emotional pivot to Batman, and a tightly made issue, but little progress in the overall Rebirth mystery. However, it sets up for a big finish in final part.

Batman (2016) #25

Jun 23, 2017

Art by Mikel Jann and June ChungBatman #25 sets up what promises to be a promising, epic arc that will touch almost every corner of the Batman rogues gallery and the character itself, and the ramping tension in this issue serves to amp up the expectation for the reader. In the hands of this creative team, we can probably expect to see something that could become one of the biggest, most key stories in Batman history.

Curse Words #1

Jan 17, 2017

The comic is fun, has an element of mystery, and an anti-hero pretending at being a straight hero, giving us the pleasure of seeing if he can truly change his nature. As first issues go, it's a really great start. It will be fun to see where the series goes in the future.

Dark Days: The Forge #1

Jun 13, 2017

Overall, Dark Days: The Forge is a great issue setting up a big event. There's still enough mystery and intrigue to keep fans guessing, but gives plenty of clues to make it tantalising and reveals that will make long-term DC fans very excited.

Inhumans Prime #1

Mar 31, 2017

Overall, Inhumans Prime sets up the Inhuman line with intriguing mysteries, allows the Inhumans to move from a well written (largely) but controversial time to a time when they can maybe finally be total heroes without causing the displacement of others, and presents a potentially exciting time of exploration and adventures to come. Setting up almost all the series of the line to come, and itself a great read with stunning art.

Justice League of America: The Ray Rebirth #1

Jan 21, 2017

This is what a superhero story should be. It is hope. It is conscience. It is action. And it is accessible to anyone at all. JLA Rebirth: The Ray is a great example of what Justice League of America can bring to us. And it is bright indeed.

Nothing Lasts Forever #1

Jun 13, 2017

Nothing Lasts Forever, just as Not My Bag and Self-Obsessed before it proved, is a wonderful snapshot into the life of Grace, with profound moments of realisation and self-discovery that all can relate to.

Secret Empire #0

Mar 26, 2017

As a whole, this is an incredible first issue to an event. It just remains to be seen if it will be enough to change the minds of those angered by the content in the story leading up to this.

Secret Empire #1

May 3, 2017

This is a great comic, in the most objective terms, of that there is little doubt. It may even be an important kind of story to tell right now. But it is not a good idea, the way it has been executed in this manner.

Secret Empire #4

All in all, taking this issue by itself and not as part of the whole, this is actually a very enjoyable issue.

Star-Lord (2016) #5

Apr 1, 2017

All this being said, Star-Lord is simply fun, even when the story is given some pretty strong emotional weight. This comic genuinely made me audibly sigh (in sadness, not because of how thirsty it made me), but I wouldn't want to spoil why. Read it yourself! Go on! You'll thank me for suggesting it, I swear.

A wonderful complete piece of character story, with consistent and beautiful artwork and a powerful issue.

Super Sons #5

Jun 25, 2017

Super Sons so far is proving to be a surprise gem of the DC Rebirth line, as it could easily have played completely silly, but instead we get something fun and with character and heart.

Weapon X (2017) #1

Apr 16, 2017

It's a great, fun read, and I'll probably be sticking with this version of the X-Men stabbing squad for a while longer yet.

Wonder Woman (2016) #14

Jan 14, 2017

The team have done something which I feel has been a long time needed for Wonder Woman: they've created the story that speaks to the very core, the very essence of what Wonder Woman is. Of why she is important. They have made Wonder Woman's All Star Superman or Green Lantern: Rebirth. They've re-established why Wonder Woman is unique and vital.

X-Men Prime #1

Mar 31, 2017

Overall, the X-Men Prime one shot is good, and it is nice to see the change in tonal direction finally, but it is a shame that it only really works as a primer for three titles and not the whole line.

X-Men: Blue (2017) #1

Apr 16, 2017

Personally, I cannot wait to read more, and that this is including the teen O5 that is saying something. This series has the classic feel but still feels fresh and has enough exciting possibility for development that it could really become something, with a creative team who seem just made for making awesome comics.

X-Men: Gold (2017) #1

Apr 5, 2017

X-Men Gold is a fantastic leap in the right direction. For so long, the X-Men books have been about survival, which has not worked well with the core allegory of mutants and what the X-Men are. Finally, this book is less about survival, and more about living.
