Action Comics (2016) #957

Jun 8, 2016

The comic does raise a lot of good questions though. So many new ideas, and twists happen that it's going to be hard to wait two weeks for the next issue. The ending scene certainly will excite a lot of fans. Patrick Zircher's artwork is dynamic and colorful, the dialogue is great, and overall it is an exciting reintroduction to the Man of Steel and his original comic series. Action Comics is certainly a book to look out for.

Aquaman: Rebirth #1

Jun 8, 2016

The comic has great artwork by Oscar Jimenez, a unique concept, and at only $2.99, this book gives new fans a great look into the misunderstood Aquaman. Hopefully we see a lot more great work from this comic in the future. It's definitely worth picking up.

Batwoman: Rebirth #1

Feb 15, 2017

Batwoman Rebirth #1 is the perfect comic for fans who have never read a comic featuring Katherine Kane. For long time fans it may feel like retreading old territory, but if we can see Krypton blow up a thousand times then we can see Batwoman's origin one more time. Really what makes the comic work is how much they explore very specific moments in Katherine Kane'spast. There a few cracks, but overall it's a fantastic story that I'm excited to see more of in the future. Another must buy from DC Rebirth.

Daredevil (2015) #1

Dec 4, 2015

While Daredevil #1 is certainly a pretty book, its style does not make up for the lack of substance. A bland narrative, a dull setting, and an unlikeable lead hold the story back. It's attempt to try and be more like the Netflix series fails as it twists what the audiences liked about that. And while the action scenes are good, the plot just doesn't feel like it's going anywhere. Definitely not worth picking up.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1

Nov 28, 2015

A great chapter in this new story. Definitely worth reading, and one of the few books I will be picking up issue to issue. Can't wait for the next one.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #3

Feb 26, 2016

The Dark Knight III is still a good story, and each issue successfully builds on top of each other, but answers need to be given soon, and a little more explanation about this specific world has to be made. Still a great book that is worth your time and money.

Monsters Unleashed #1

Jan 21, 2017

However, there is that $4.99 price tag on the comic. If it were a dollar cheaper, or printed in a prestige formatting, then I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. The issue does come with more story, which is a plus. However, I'm not a fan of the flimsy, cheap paper Marvel uses for their books. There's also the question of how the tie-ins will effect the story or the progress of the event. However, it'sstill an enjoyable event and I'mexcited to see where the series is going to go next.

Spencer & Locke #1

Feb 20, 2017

Spencer & Locke successfully combines two polar opposites together in this brilliant crime comic. Through a unique, unsettling tone, fascinating characters, a compelling universe, and fantastic art this book has become a must buy. It cannot be recommended enough.

Super Sons #1

Feb 15, 2017

This first issue is an absolute must buy. It's funny, well thought out, and really goes deep into these wonderful characters. As the introduction to Robin and Superboy, it does everything right. It sets up the most important characters, their relationship, gives the reader an intriguing hook, and then ends on a cliffhanger. This comic cannot be recommended highly enough. Pick it up ASAP and be ready for the start of a great ride for this dynamic duo.

The Flintstones #2

Aug 10, 2016

The Flintstones continues to be a funny book with great moments and jokes. I have confidence that it will eventually find its footing and create a more consistent satire. DC Comics deserves a commendation for putting faith in a dark, unique, and funny series.

Wonder Woman: Earth One #1

Apr 6, 2016

A great addition to the "Earth One" line, Wonder Woman Earth One is a fantastic, and mature look at the classic superheroine. While some might be put off by the excessive dialogue and lack of action it touches on unique themes that are rarely talked about in superhero comics. The art is definitely some of the best in the market now, and is more than worth the asking price. Another great Wonder Woman book on the market.
