Kamandi Challenge #4

Apr 26, 2017

Fast, fun but without much depth and not above succumbing to the lesser clichs that come with the story matter and not necessarily to the issue's credit. However, lots to look forward to, with more action in store and hopefully more of a hook than thePlanet of the Apes, "God damn you all to Hell!" ending I think most readers would be expecting.

Totally fun, funny and creative re-imagining of the classic cartoon characters which brought them into the perfect part of the DC universe, bringing together an utterly satisfying crossover.

Nightwing (2016) #16

Mar 1, 2017

Excellent character work. The chemistry between Dick and Damian is wonderful and there is a lot to look forward to regarding Nightwing's legacy and his future with Shawn. I hope the coming plotlines can match the maturity we are seeing in these characters.

Nightwing (2016) #19

If youre as attached to Damian Wayne as I am" especially after this arc " then youre going to feel a slight sting. The issue progresses everything weve seen in the arc so far, pushing Nightwing further out of his comfort zone and making the most out of close, personal interactions between the active characters.

Nightwing (2016) #20

May 3, 2017

The final issue of the "Nightwing Must Die" arcis a brilliant read, with a deep and meaningful plotline that brings out the most in Nightwing and all the supporting characters. The Fernandez' artwork is stunning, Damian Wayne's dialogue is the best it's ever been.

This issue provides a relaxed, irreverent but still fun and overall enjoyable beginning to a new arc. The chemistry between Wally and Dick is a crowd-pleaser, however its the strongest hook this book has to offer without a substantial villainYET.

Nightwing (2016) #22

Jun 7, 2017

This issue is building up to something big, however the build-up itself falls a little flat here. That being said, this issue does introduce a great new character and provide Tiger Shark a little more time to ingratiate himself into Bludhavens underworld. Nightwing is a bit of a pervert but thats nothing new for dick at this point.

Nightwing (2016) #23

This issue is representing the real beginning of the action in terms of the Tiger Shark element of the plotline and has propelled the plot forward and added some momentum to the arc as a whole. The artwork here is perfect and only makes me appreciate Roland even more as an enemy in this series. Only drawback is Dick making a really big deal about having to be an adult human being, including saying some pretty hurtful things to his partner.

Suicide Squad (2016) #17

May 10, 2017

The anatomy of Kryptonians aside, this issue was a treat to read. The action sequences with Zod were so enjoyably brutal but still served a bigger purpose for the team, and I'm excited to see his relationship with the Squad develop in the coming issues. Wallers spy games are also playing out well, with a gripping atmosphere and impactful suspense.

Supergirl (2016) #9

May 10, 2017

Fun, fast, and snappy, this issue has momentum and charm and doesn't waste a panel keeping the plot moving. Our heroes get to be funny, smart and badass, in a tight and beautifully drawn issue.
