One of the few non Star-Wars Marvel books in my pull. I don't find this title spectacular by any means but it's just to satisfy the fact that I believe Pete and MJ should be together and allowed to have babies. I always have to compare this with the current Superman books because there's a similar dynamic with Clark, Lois, and Jon. But with Supes, the stakes are higher. Although enduring Bouncy Bu more

DC played it safe with the ending. Honestly with so much still shrouded in mystery, it seems like a lot of work just to get some red boots and a new belt... Maybe a younger body too?? Either way, we are back to the status quo and I'm assuming memories from both the New 52 and Post-Crisis, prior to Flashpoint are now all valid? In the double page spread, in Supes' rogue gallery, you see Ulysses in more

I'm really considering dropping this title. It showed promise in the first issue and then became nonsensical. Between all the fighting, you really don't know what is going on, only that there are trolls trying to mate with human women. Or was it frost giants? Either way, this story is a mess.

I didn't know what to expect when I picked this issue up but it's interesting enough to keep me onboard for at least the first story arc. I feel like you do need to read some of Batwoman's New 52 run (which I have not) to have some of the plot threads make sense. There are characters in this first issue from Kate's past that I'm assuming I'm supposed to be familiar with but unless you have read pr more

Just so you know Mr. Oz doesn't actually appear in the comic unless Oz is really Jon or Lois or Superman or Jimmy Olson after visiting Paris during fashion week.

This isn't a good book...yet but it still can be. Normally I'd write it off but since Steve Orlando is writing it, I'll stick around on faith.
