Batman Beyond (2016) #50

Dec 22, 2020

Batman Beyond #50 leaves Terry McGuinness in an excellent position to continue onto new adventures, while also serving as an excellent end cap for one of DC Rebirth's longest running and most consistent series.

Future State (2021): Catwoman #1

Jan 19, 2021

A great issue full of twists, turns, and even a few surprises. Future State: Catwoman builds on the events of Vs ongoing Catwoman run and gives us a tantalizing glimpse of a future built on the bones of the present. Selina is perfectly characterized... and the issue itself closes at the most intriguing part, leaving many parts in motion and plenty of places to go. Its the wait for it cats meow.

Future State (2021): Superman: Worlds of War #1

Jan 19, 2021

One of the strongest in the Future State line so far, this issue feels like a tapestry of many kinds of thread, slowly coming together to slowly form a single image that, so far, remains just out of reach. I can't wait to keep following those leads.

Future State (2021): The Next Batman #1

Jan 5, 2021

A fantastic start to the Batman corner of 2025, Future State: The Next Batman #1 wastes no time in establishing the dynamics of this new world and its characters. Each story addresses a different aspect of life in and around Gotham City, painting a fascinating picture of life in what amounts to a fascist city-state. An excellent opening to a series that I expect will feel too short by its closing.

Future State (2021): The Next Batman #2

Jan 19, 2021

Another excellent Next Batman adventure, paired with two intriguing backup stories. The character, motivations and methods of the man behind the cowl continues to evolve and reveal itself.

Gideon Falls #27

Dec 23, 2020

Gideon Falls #27 is the perfect ending for a perfectly entrancing series. If you've enjoyed the ride to date, you can expect to enjoy this wrap up in much the same way: in a well-lit room and followed by a long night pretending you don't hear that skritch, skritch, skritch!

HaHa #1

Jan 13, 2021

W. Maxwell Prince and today's collaborators Vanessa Del Rey, Chris O'Halloran and Good Old Neon spin a tale about a down on his luck clown, and how much you can lose before you aren't lucky anymore. Or maybe it's about how little you need to keep in order to continue seeing yourself as lucky? Well, what's important is, a story about a slightly pathetic clown has no right to be this good.

Ice Cream Man #22

Dec 26, 2020

A haunting and profoundly emotional look at a young girl's life as she struggles with secrets and fears during the holiday season, "Advent Calendar" is yet another excellent entry in the impeccable Ice Cream Man record.

Sam & His Talking Gun #1

Dec 19, 2020

A promising beginning to a fantastic team that plays beautifully off of one another's strengths, Sam takes a familiar premise and mixes it up with enough unique elements to keep it fresh. A great first issue, and I look forward to learning more about this world, these characters. And that gun.
