Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #21

May 20, 2019

More of Kraven's true plans are revealed in Hunted part 5 in a refreshing and new way thanks to the inclusion of The Lizard and some fantastic storytelling from Nick Spencer, Gerardo Sandoval, Victor Nava and Edgar Delgado. If you've been along for the whole Hunted story thus far, don't skip Amazing Spider-Man #21.

Batman (2016) #68

Apr 14, 2019

Batman #68 is a fun read and is definitely one of the easier to digest issues of the Knightmares story arc and does a decent job of moving the story along.

Batman (2016) #72

Jun 10, 2019

Batman #72 can potentially be the issue that wins some former readers back as it adds clarity to past events. And if they're still not entirely happy with Tom King's writing, then the fantastic art of Jorge Fornes and Mikel Janin should be able to gain their attention.

Criminal (2019) #5

Jun 7, 2019

Criminal #5 begins a new story-arc that holds a lot of promise. Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Jacob Phillips show no indication of slowing down or getting sloppy any time soon. Anyone who's a fan of crime fiction, comic or not, should read Criminal #5 as soon as possible.

Doomsday Clock #10

May 29, 2019

Doomsday Clock #10 answers so many questions regarding the DC Universe and Dr. Manhattan's place in it and does so in an incredible way. Despite the long waits between each issue, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank still have me excited and intrigued every time a new issue is released. This one especially does not disappoint.

Flash (2016) #71

May 27, 2019

The Flash: Year One's second chapter isn't anything that'll blow your mind, but it is an enjoyable read and probably the easiest time traveling story to digest.

Flash (2016) #72

Jun 14, 2019

The Flash #72 is a solid issue, despite some of its pacing and pieces of dialogue. Pick it up if you've been following the Year One arc, as I think the next issue will be a pretty good one.

Shazam! (2018) #5

May 15, 2019

Shazam #5 feels pretty weak compared not only to past issues, but other comics written by Geoff Johns. Having different artists on each segment of the issue was a great idea and didn't disturb the flow of the story whatsoever. But the cliched dialogue and the fact that hardly anything happens is a pretty big negative for me.
