Action Comics (2016) #974

Feb 22, 2017

After the galaxy spanning last arc, Jurgens returns to Superman the man and develops a caring narrative. His ongoing story with Lois and fake Clark finally starts to pull back the curtain on the mystery and promises some surprises. Both plots move readers forward and make the wait for the next issue difficult.

Action Comics (2016) #975

Mar 8, 2017

Complex, dangerous, yet still fun. Action Comics #975 delivers some of the the best comic book value available. Beyond dollar value, DC's commitment to every other week shipping ensures a sense of momentum to this story line.

Aquaman (2016) #16

Feb 2, 2017

A fine life raft for readers to jump on, but a safe local story in what could have been an exciting world building opportunity. Issue #16 floats safely on.

Batwoman: Rebirth #1

Feb 15, 2017

The creative team of Bennett, Tynion, Epting, and Cox crafts an artistic issue that invites new and former readers back to the character, while teasing just enough for fans to get excited about. Kate Kane remains a powerful character who is often easier to identify with than Bruce Wayne.

He-Man / Thunder Cats #5

Feb 15, 2017

The issue is action packed but ultimately does little to move the story forward. Issue #6 should be an exciting conclusion to this fandom crossover

He-Man / Thunder Cats #6

Mar 15, 2017

In today's story, He-Man and Lion-O learned that working together allows people to accomplish more than doing things alone. Skeletor and Mumm-Ra found out that being greedy only hurts people, including themselves.

Justice League / Power Rangers #2

Feb 8, 2017

The story set up thus far is as static as any iteration of a predictable episode from Saban's long running series.

Justice League of America: Killer Frost Rebirth #1

Jan 25, 2017

A successful transition from Killer Frost's role in Justice League vs. Suicide Squad into her new role on the Justice League of America. Caitlin Snow's internal battle to fight against the prejudice and judgment of others and set her own future continues the empowerment themes that Orlando and Houser created with each of these JLA:Rebirth one-shots.

Odyssey of the Amazons #1

Jan 25, 2017

The juxtaposition of multiple mythologies provide Grevioux with a world of adventure to explore that looks to earn the Odyssey in the title. This first issue is successful in investing the reader in these characters. While there is not a strong tie to any of DC's existing story lines, this stand alone adventure may prove to be a journey worth taking.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) #7

Feb 8, 2017

This wonderful issue remains true to who Todd is while adding a new layer that many readers never considered. As a result, Jason Todd and the reader are left in a better place.

Saban's Power Rangers: Aftershock (OGN) #1

Mar 29, 2017

The Power Rangers maybe a franchise built in the 90's, but Power Rangers: Aftershock is a standalone tie-in with modern day sensibilities. Rather than throw away fan service, Aftershock succeeds in continuing to develop the characterization of the Power Rangers. The price tag maybe high for a comic, but for the price of another movie ticket, Parrott provides fans an opportunity to enjoy more time with the heroes of Angel Grove.

The Power of the Dark Crystal #1

Feb 22, 2017

This is an essential read for fans of the franchise and for any fantasy fan. Even readers not connected with the franchise will find themselves pulled into this world and wondering what comes next. The setup of the first issue promises a world changing tale of adventure, sacrifice, and hopefully renewal.

Titans (2016) #8

Feb 8, 2017

While readers that fondly remember the "good ol' days" of the Teen Titans will welcome this issue, casual fans can safely skip this beginning of a new story arc.
