I'll be honest: My love of Buffy's universe probably leads me to score this series a little higher than I, otherwise, would. It's as if, just for existing...for giving me more of one of my favorite shows, each issue, automatically gets an extra point. Taking that into consideration, it makes my 7.6 score a little less impressive. SEASON 11 started strong but the last three issues have been sl more

While this may be my favorite issue of the series, that isn't saying much. Steve Orlando is capable of so much better (MIDNIGHTER is a must-read) but he is, definitely, one of the more uneven writers in comics (like Scott Lobdell Mr. Orlando is capable of both great storytelling and terrible writing). Also, nothing against Andy MacDonald...I enjoyed his artwork well enough this issue...but, th more

I have been enjoying every single page of this series since issue #1. In four issues and a couple of days (in comic time) Warren Ellis has managed to create, in the new Wildstorm Universe, an amazing world littered with realistily complex, compulsively readable characters. THE WILDSTORM #4 may have cemented one of these creations, the most recent iteration of Henry Bendix, as one of my favorite more

I like the story, but I think that there are certain characters within the DC Universe that come across as unlikable and one of those people is Kid Flash. I hope that what they are building up to is a spectacular as they are implying, but in these first two issues not much has happened.

Crown of Atlantis seems to hold some weight unlike H2.0 which was kind of stupid. Deadwater was never that interesting of a villain, (more of a mindless sea-monster really) so why bring him back so soon? If was a weak way to end the New 52 run of Aquaman and less than a year out he makes an unwelcome reappearance. I was genuinely worried that the writers had run out of options for Aquaman but with more

I was,initially drawn to David Walker's POWER MAN AND IRON FIST because Iron Fist is my favorite Marvel property (neck-in-neck with Black Panther, the Inhumans and Union Jack).

I find it funny that this event is called "Endless" which is exactly the word I'd use to describe Hitch's disconnected storytelling that's been going on for nearly a whole year now. Eventually this has to go somewhere, just like this short story arc, I feel like JL readers are stuck in a time loop with something bad happening everytime that could be prevented if someone had their $#%@ together.

Once again, Bryan Hitch gives us a conclusion that is so bad it goes back in time and ruins the early issues of the arc. In this case, it was ridiculous logic that ruined everything (in addition to the usual terrible dialogue). If Flash reset things and went back in time every time he connected with the artifact...and the original "event" that triggered everything happened at the expo...then h more
