A Walk Through Hell #7

Jan 19, 2019

A tense and interesting horror mystery delivered masterfully by Ennis, with excellent art and colouring from Suduka and Svorcina.

Batman (2016) #63

Jan 23, 2019

A somewhat mediocre entry into what has been a Batman run with many ups and downs, and the weakest of the Knightmares stories so far.

Champions (2019) #1

Jan 2, 2019

A book with definite potential in all areas that fails at being a new reader friendly first issue for a new run, and is dragged down by it. If you're already reading Zub's Champions, it's possibly fine. But if you're new and want to jump on, you're better off starting with issue #19 of the 2016-2018 run, where Jim Zub actually started writing.

Detective Comics (2016) #995

Jan 2, 2019

An excellent second issue that builds on the mystery and leaves you wanting even more in the best way possible, enhanced by impeccable art.

Euthanauts #5

Jan 8, 2019

Euthanauts #5 is a wonderful exploration, both metaphorical and literal, of death, with great writing and beautiful art. If you're looking for a comic that's poignant, touching and visually gorgeous, this is a series you should have your eye on.

Go Go Power Rangers #16

Jan 9, 2019

A wonderfully written Power Rangers issue with absolutely spectacular art in an overall excellent Power Rangers series. If you were ever a fan of Power Rangers and Sentai shows, it's a book absolutely worth your time.

Green Arrow (2016) #49

Feb 6, 2019

Emotional and hard hitting moments are accompanied by trippy visuals in a great Green Arrow issue.

Green Lantern (2018) #3

Jan 9, 2019

Another strong "episode" of Grant Morrison's cop drama take on Green Lantern, The Green Lantern #3 is both a narrative and artistic triumph, and one of DC's very best ongoing books right now.

Immortal Hulk #11

Jan 3, 2019

Ewing and Bennett present an awe-inspiring vision of Hell and a gut-churning depiction of the Hulk, combined with beautifully written narration, in one of the consistently best comics being published right now.

Justice League (2018) #15

Jan 9, 2019

A somewhat unremarkable issue that advances the plot a little but doesn't contain any particularly stellar moments, but overall the run is still a step up from the other Rebirth Justice League runs.

Lone Ranger (2018) #4

Jan 15, 2019

Another solid issue in a great Wild West story, with crisp art and great writing. If you want more interesting cowboy content, you should be looking at this series

Low Road West #5

Jan 22, 2019

An aesthetic treat, but one where the writing feels unsubstantial, especially compared to the rest of the series. Overall, a somewhat shrug-inducing conclusion to this miniseries.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) #30

Jan 16, 2019

A good issue that, while lacking any majorly exciting sequences, helps prepare interesting plot threads and continues to make good use of Jason as a character.

Scarlet (2018) #5

Jan 2, 2019

A decently written book that carries tension when required, but is largely oddly relaxing thanks to Maleev's illustration, and helps creatively provide some exposition for the series going forward.

Sparrowhawk #4

Jan 29, 2019

An incredible modern fairy tale that is both well written and well illustrated. If you enjoy fantasy and/or characters with painful emotional arcs, Sparrowhawk is a must.

The Wrong Earth #6

Feb 6, 2019

Intelligent, engaging and just all around incredibly fun, The Wrong Earth #6 is a great conclusion to the first "season" of an excellent comic, with some fun short stories packed in for good measure.

Venom (2018) #10

Jan 17, 2019

An excellent issue that delves deeper into Brock's past with solid characterisation and art.

Wild Storm #19

Jan 24, 2019

Another excellent addition to another great Warren Ellis book, with fantastically detailed art. This is a series that everyone should give a shot.
