Kitaru reviewed God Country #2 Feb 26, 2017
9.0

Not as sad as I thought it would be. I think the mixture of the comic's mythology and realism is done very tastefully, while also allowing room for a story to grow. I think this comic will be one of the great indie comics of 2017 and hope that it continues to grow.

It was so good! The character development is impressive and the humanizing factor of the Bat Team is taking this book into another level... a deeper level actually. I read part of the Batman And Robin Eternal and I have to say that I was actually expecting some development based on that story and this was precisely that. The way Cassandra drives the story between her thoughts and her f more

[ART: 9.4 | STORY: 8.1 | WRITING: 8.8 | TOTAL: 8.8 (~9)] This is a fantastic event thus far. The art was great, the plot was solid and it was really well written. Williamson manages the cast of character really well and gives most of the characters something to do which is great. The humour lands well and the characters are given emotions. There are some good twists as well. I can't wait for the s more

Lost Light, née MTMTE, returns in full force and full form after a nearly half-year long break if you don't count issue 56, 57 and the Revolution one-shot, and boy did I miss this series.

Jack Lawrence does an admirable job with the art, but it obviously lack the Milne touch... though I'm betting it might have to do more a bit with the inking being slightly wanting at times.

ArkhamJamie reviewed Civil War II #8 Dec 29, 2016
5.5

[ART: 9.3 | STORY: 4 | WRITING: 4 | TOTAL: 5.7 (~5.5)] My score isn't my exact thoughts, but I just needed a way to give the book a 5.5 without dragging down the art. Mediocre at best. David Marquez's art is beautiful which makes it even more of a shame that it's in a terrible book. A finale that doesn't resolve anything, shamelessly plugs everything else and has some absolutely terrible character more

Gets a 2 point deduction from my actual score just for saying something is better than The Cure. (PS. Nothing is better than The Cure)
Gets a 0.5 point bonus for punching Hitler.

The dialogue goes from incredibly bad to outright cringe-y at times, with its only decent point being the art by Quinones.

Best issue in a series that gets better. We are introduced to the Chinese Joker and there is more development on Kenan as a character. Oh and to those speculators who bought up every single copy of Batman/Superman 32 to flip on ebay, the joke's on you.
