Batman / TMNT Adventures #3

While not particularly plot heavy, the sheer fun of the issue continues to drive this story forward and it's a blast to read. More please.

Batman / TMNT Adventures #5

This may not be a perfect story, but what it lacks in substance it more than makes up for in sheer enthusiasm. Go put on your best bungee cord utility belt and pick it up.

Batman / TMNT Adventures #6

May 10, 2017

In summary, this issue is very much like the series on the whole. It gets by less on plot or story, and more on the sheer enthusiasm the creative team has for these characters. It remains an enjoyable read and is worthwhile for anyone who's wished for new episodes of Batman: The Animated Series.

This first issue is an engaging mystery featuring two iconic characters and I'm looking forward to the next issue.

Batman/The Shadow #2

May 24, 2017

Company crossovers tend to not have a large degree of quality to them and seem more designed for making a quick buck then telling a good story. So far, this series raises that very low bar with a compelling and stylish story that is worth your time and money.

Justice League (2016) #3

Aug 19, 2016

This story continues to underwhelm. The action is great, but that's all this title seems to be good for. At this point I'm just hoping that this story line wraps up soon, along with it's writer.

Justice League (2016) #4

Sep 9, 2016

Despite an intriguing ending, this story continues to limp along. And while I'm interested in seeing where it's going, I'm more interested in the story ending.

Justice League (2016) #7

Oct 21, 2016

This is a book that continues to fall down in the writing. Hitch has had a good year with most of these characters and it appears that he's just not up to the task.

All told, this issue is a step in the right direction. I'm curious to see if this is a sign of the title improving and it'll be interesting to see how the story continues.

Justice League (2016) #9

Nov 18, 2016

What his issue comes down to is that it's mediocre and not terribly interesting and frankly, a title like Justice League deserves better.

While this issue on its own has some entertaining moments, as the end of this story arch, is ultimately unsatisfying.

Eaton does a good job with what what he's given to work with. I don't think Scot Eaton will ever be one of DC's top tier artists, but he gets the job done and has shown himself to be a solid fill-in artist.

Justice League of America (2017) #1

Feb 24, 2017

Ivan Reis' art is a stand out of this issue. Reis handles the character moments and the action well. I like that his style manages to be detailed and dynamic without being overly stylized or seeming like a Jim Lee clone.

In summary, despite a dip in the art this issue, JLA continues to be a strong book. Go buy it.

In summary, JLA stumbles with this issue. The issue is still enjoyable, but doesnt live up to the strong start of the previous issues.

Apr 28, 2017

In summary, JLA has started strong and still is playing with some interesting ideas, but is bogged down in its execution and art in this issue and as shown in the earlier issues of this series, they canand should do better.

Justice League of America (2017) #6

May 12, 2017

This book is like the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Its well meaning and its got potential, but while its going through its growing pains, its kind of painful to watch. Heres hoping the next story arc is a step in the right direction.

Justice League: Rebirth #1

Jul 8, 2016

Now that the Rebirth issue is done and over with, hopefully more time will be given to better craft the story. Or at the very least, a villain that doesn't pair as well with a lemon butter sauce.

Nightwing (2016) #20

May 4, 2017

Overall this was a letdown from the recent quality of the Nightwing title and probably should have been condensed down " like so many stories in modern Big Two comics the need to stretch the story out didn't serve it well. That said, I definitely am looking forward to the next issue and arc. This creative team is strong and can handle a small bump in the road.
