Action Comics (2016) #975

Overall Action Comics has entered their best arc yet, and it's worth reading this, if for nothing, at least to find out where some of the threads of Rebirth are going!

Action Comics (2016) #976

Mar 22, 2017

Overall Superman Reborn was a fun story as a whole, and even though it ended up not being as essential as some other Superman stories, it did have some interesting moments especially with the Rebirth mystery. It did taper off at the end though, and instead of having a memorable ending, it did seem a bit clich. But no one will be really disappointed with this story if you are a fan of Big Blue.

Jurgens does succeed to make this into essential reading for Rebirth, as it does answer some very crucial questions and both in that sense and in the sense that is a very interesting story that could shape the life of the Man of Steel it comes recommended!

Overall this is still a very engaging story that does answer quite a few questions that people had since the beginning of Rebirth, and even if it does not seem as essential as some of other stories involving Oz, it is still very intriguing.

Batman (2016) #18

Mar 1, 2017

Overall Batman Rebirth continues to be one of if not the best Rebirth title, they are pretty much in a dead heat tie with the entire Trinity, but this is one of those books, that should be in your pull, at least this particular arc. That is one of the best things about the way all three books are written so far, each arc is truly for itself, and is not dependent on the knowledge of the character before hand, so if you just want read just particular story of these characters, you can do that!

Apr 5, 2017

There's not much else to say about how good this book – and this arc – was. It was talky at points, butvillains always talk too much before the confrontation. What worked here is that Batman was playing off it perfectly and there was no wasted momentum. Bane did not stop to give a grandiose speech – he told the story as he was causing chaos. So if you are a fan of Batman, do yourself a favor and pick this series up.

Batman (2016) #21

Apr 19, 2017

Overall, Tom King is continuing to master this character, and at this point, has shown to be the writer that Batman deserves to continue the great storytelling of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. Don't miss this issue if you are a Batman fan! Tom King has also managed to make this a good jumping-on point for new readers that have not read the Rebirth Batman before, and that is never a small feat!

Overall this was a very important chapter in Batman saga as it finally answers some key questions about his character and has a meeting that could very well change his life forever. For that sake who ever enjoys Batman stories should read this chapter, and they will get some more subtle hints for the Button storyline.

Batman (2016) #23

May 18, 2017

Batman continues to be a book to pick up in this Rebirth era, it is full of twists and turns, and as evident even when not a huge arc is going on its still very interesting if not even better as it is not constrained by having to tie a ton of loose ends and is a fitting tribute to late Bernie Wrightson.

Batman (2016) #24

Jun 8, 2017

People were wondering how Tom King would come in and take over on Batman after Snyder and Capullo run of theNew 52, which was one of the bright spots of that era ofDC Comics history, and the answer is with extreme ease. It is now clearly evident that King understands the character, is a fan of the character, and ultimately is given enough clout and control to tell the stories that he wants to tell, not being pressured by the executives. That being ultimately why these books work on a level they do, and if you are a fan of a character, get this run.

King manages to bring one of the most iconic villains of Batman lore to life, without carbon copying what was seen before, but not going too far on the left field so the character is not recognizable and that is where this issue truly succeeds and is a must read for anyone.

Jul 19, 2017

Tom King manages to bring us a new perception on some of the most iconic Batman villains and the fear anyone had what exactly he could have done with them, especially Joker should be put aside as King has given us a most human, but also most terrifying Joker of all. Rest easy and pick up this series, it is clearly in a pantheon of must read arcs for Batman fans!

Batman (2016) #31

Sep 20, 2017

Overall War of Jokes and Riddles part V is a good addition to the story and even characters like Kite-man are not relegated to just background characters. That is one particular thing King has been really good at in this run, everything that happened served a purpose. With one more chapter to go, it is going to be interesting to see how this story ends. This might not have been the best chapter of this particular arc but it is still a damn good Batman story. Recommended.

Batman (2016) #32

Oct 5, 2017

There are certainly moments of Batman brooding in this issue. He is Batman. He broods. But it is the context of all of this that put this current Batman run above many others before it. Subtleties in this run are numerous and they are handled well. It is always refreshing to read a book in Superhero lore, whichever it is; when you can see a real situation pertaining to those heroes. It brings them down to Earth a bit which certainly makes them more relatable. That is exactly what Tom King has managed to do with Batman villains during the war of Jokes and Riddles showing there is a little insanity in all of us.

This issue is a very fun read and a diversion of sorts from the epic storylines King has written in the past. In that sense this book comes highly recommended and a must-read for Batman fans and also for those that wanted to get something a little different. It is not a most action packed chapter, but it is highly enjoyable.

If you are a fan of Batman stories, you will enjoy this unique take on the character and world. But even if you dont like Batman, there are enough differences that you might find something you will like, even if it is only a twisted desire to see the Dark Knight in an insane situation. This book comes recommended.

Batwoman (2017) #1

Mar 16, 2017

Overall, this book is a great introduction to the character for the new readers. It also keeps a lot of elements of the character from previous runs. This was one of the books that did not need to be reinvented really, as the character worked well before. What the book needed though, was focus, like many other New 52 titles, and even though it gets too wordy at times, I believe this was a very good introduction to the new adventures of Kathy Kane!

Champions #6

Mar 1, 2017

Overall as Isaid book is very fun so far, and if what Waid and Ramos want to make this an Impulse type book, I am all for it, as that and Young Justice books were some of my favorite, for that type of genre, but sometimes I have a feeling it wants to be way more serious, and mixing those genres to those extremes, is just not feasible, both for a writer, and for the reader, as they would not know what to expect in the next issue. Another thing about this book so far at least, there is no cohesion, we had two issues that were kind of tied together, but rest of them, were all stand alone's. If you are a fan of Waid and Ramos you won't be disappointed but if you are looking for an epic adventure, look elsewhere. I personally think this book is very fun, for what it is, but as i mentioned before it does need a bit of a more cohesion.

Champions #7

Apr 8, 2017

All of this makes Champions one of the most fun books Marvel has. It is also one of the most diverse books that they have with pretty much every minority covered here. The way that last part of it is treated as footnote is especially important, as what this book does teach us is that there are no such things as minorities we are all in the same fight to make our world better. And it is because of this message, I recommend this book to everyone.

Dark Days: The Casting #1

Jul 14, 2017

The list of artist caliber on this book is staggering as well, we have Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and Romita Jr on this book and each one of them do bring something to the scale of the book which is very important. The artists are not trying to out do each other and even me not being a huge fan of Romita Jr's art can honestly say that he stepped up his game here and it does not feel detracting from the other two styles, which is a great sign. There is a ton of different locations in this book in here as well and each artist is picked specifically fits their style and that is very evident here. The book does not suffer because of it, like many before it that try to alternate artists within the same book.

Darkseid Special #1

Aug 30, 2017

Overall Darkseid Special is a bit of a disappointment, as it truly had a potential to be best of the Kirby Specials. If you want to complete the DCs celebration of Kirbys birthday, get it, otherwise it is easily skippable filler chapter in the story of Apokolips.

Cassandra Cain is slowly becoming one of my favorite characters again because of this book, and considering I did not particularly care for her previous run, that is quite a feat.

Detective Comics (2016) #965

Sep 29, 2017

Detective Comics Lonely Place of Living story-line looks like it could be a great turning point for the Rebirth line same as Action Comics was. Everything is looking intertwined but what is being avoided is a feel that every single book of Rebirth has to be read to get a full story. It is a crossover without being a crossover and that is what DC has done so well with Rebirth. Lonely Place of Living story and Detective Comics in general come highly recommended.

Detective Comics (2016) #966

Oct 11, 2017

Lonely Place of Living is living up to the moniker, and it does seem like it is going to be one of the most important stories of Rebirth line, next to Oz Effect and the upcoming Doomsday Clock. So far, the book has been very entertaining with just enough enough action, but it is the character work Tynion and Barrows work that makes Detective Comics stand out from the rest of the field. It is a quintessential return of Tim Drake. Pick this up as it comes highly recommended.

IvX #6

Mar 8, 2017

Overall this issue served a pretty good closing point for this versus chapter, even though at the end it did seem a bit shallow in a sense not so much the writing is bad in these books per say, it is more a question of just how much freedom these writers really have as in the greater scope of the Marvel universe. It seems like Marvel's answer to everything is events events events, prior to this we had Civil War II, and now after this we will have Secret Empire. It would be good if they would give some time for these events to bare fruit sort of speak, because ultimately if you keep changing the status quo every few months, none of this really matters. But if you are a fan of X-men or Inhumans you will get a kick out of this book, just don't expect anything earth shattering.

Jean Grey #1

May 5, 2017

Jean Grey is an interesting book and a completely different take on her character. Its biggest problem is going to be sustainability, as it seems that this would work better as a mini series or a limited run than an ongoing. That being said, the book is an enjoyable read, and even though it does seem like an extension of X-Men Blue, there is room to grow.

Mar 8, 2017

Overall this book is an interesting crossover, even though I don't see what the full point of it really was. It has a bigger canvas of characters to play for sure, especially with lot of these characters still not making their Rebirth debut. It is certainly a book made for younger readers, and mostly for the fans of Power Rangers, if they want to continue seeing the adventures of these characters, but other than that, the book is really just another crossover that should not exist. So for those people that just want to get a little bit more colorful take on Justice League, or Power Rangers, this book is for you, anyone else look somewhere else for your entertainment!

Mister Miracle is the book that truly encompasses the celebration of Jack Kirby's birthday, more than any other special or reprints or covers ever could. Tom King and Mitch Gerards have written and drawn the best Fourth World story since Kirby himself, and that is saying a lot.

Nightwing (2016) #16

Mar 1, 2017

Overall this book is honestly not for everyone, but if you are a fan of Nightwing or Bat Family in general, do pick it up, it is worth reading, it was never meant to be on a grand scale like some other books in Rebirth line, this book is more about self discovery and so far Seeley has hit all the right notes, as Nightwing continues trying to correct the wrongs that have happened ever since the events of Forever Evil. That's really where the biggest strength of this book lies for the fans of this character, is that of all the characters, I could say Batman excluded, is Nightwing is just back to being old school Dick Grayson, and there is nothing wrong with that!

Overall this is a really good first arc to the series with the book having a lot of potential. Hopefully this is going to be one book that is not going to be bogged down by countless incoming Marvel cross overs, as Spider-man and also Ms Marvel did suffer from during the Civil War era. As much Nova was part of that, he did not get bogged down by the events and can continue to have an independent story from the major going on's in the Marvel universe. Being this is one of the rare books that does this, it is worth picking up, even though it is not without it flaws.

Superman (2016) #29

Aug 16, 2017

Superman continues to be a very strong book in the Rebirth line, together with Batman, and shout out to Metal, Snyder and Capullo are back, so for a trinity of books to purchase this week from DC, I would go with those three!

Superman (2016) #30

Sep 8, 2017

If you like Superman and Green lantern you are up for a treat for sure, if you wanted the Superman books to be more action packed, you will get that, but for those that want to see more a dynamic build between the family members, you will get that partially in this book, just not as much as one could hope. Book still comes recommended however.

Superman (2016) #32

Oct 9, 2017

This book certainly lacks the gravitas that Gleason and Tomasi brought to Superman during the early stages of their run. In contrast, this feels more like New 52 Superman,and that is not a good thing. However, with this issue finally being over it does look like Gleason might be coming back to the book soon and then we can bring it back to form. These two issues are skippable.

Superman (2016) #33

Oct 18, 2017

Overall, Superman 33 is a return to form and even though there is quite a bit of exposition at the beginning of the chapter, it certainly evens out toward the middle and especially toward the end. This is truly a book I can recommend, and it is nice to see Superman in good hands again!

Teen Titans (2016) #6

Mar 22, 2017

Overall, Teen Titans #6 is a fun read. We were introduced to a Young Justice character, whose introduction is handled admirably and does not seem forced. On the other hand, the cast is slowly growing, so it looks like some of the characters might be taking a backseat to others from time to time. That is fine for now, but the book is called Teen Titans, and being a team book, everyone should be getting equal page space.

Teen Titans (2016) #7

Apr 26, 2017

Overall, this is a decent, if a bit rushed, ending to the reintroduction of Jackson Hyde. The book could have benefited from another issue. It is not by any means a deal breaker, though. I for one am excited to see what kind of adventures the Teen Titans get in going forward.

Teen Titans (2016) #8

May 18, 2017

Teen Titans continues to be a fun book, and definite course correction from its new 52 counterpart. It has focus, sense of purpose, but most of all sense of family that the book lacked in New 52 era. It is a good time to be a Titans fan!

Teen Titans (2016) #10

Jul 27, 2017

Teen Titans is still not able to recapture some of the shine it lost since its beginning run; however, it is still an enjoyable book, even with its faults. It is more focused than The New 52 run, even though some art consistency would be appreciated. If you are a fan of Teen Titans, this is a fun read but not a must-have story in pantheon of great Titans titles of the past.

Teen Titans (2016) #12

Sep 15, 2017

This was one of the Tie In's I was hoping for the best because, as I mentioned, it had potential to give us something different. Instead, it looks like we are going to get same team ups throughout these Tie In's.

Titans (2016) #9

Mar 9, 2017

Overall, Titans has been a stellar book even though it did suffer some of the Origin Story problems. Now that that portion of it is taken care of its nice to see the team that a lot of people have grown up with, even though some of the other team members are part of the younger Teen Titans book. What does work is that the characters and relationships between them are well balanced, and everyone serves a purpose in a book. If you were disappointed by Teen Titans of 52 eras, you should be rejoicing as Titans are back!

Overall this issue was very enjoyable and a great read. It is great to see Deathstroke torment Titans again and will be interesting to see how this will effect all three of the books going forward.

Titans (2016) #12

Jun 19, 2017

Titans continues to be another bright spot in the Rebirth era books, and even if it is not in the pinnacle, it does deserve a spot in your pull list. If you never read Titans, this run was one of the few that you will not have a problem jumping in, as it doesn't beat you across the head with the information from the previous books and any information given seems like a normal progression.

Titans (2016) #13

Jul 14, 2017

Hopefully this is only temporary, as Titans was a relatively solid book since the Rebirth started and once we move onto a different arc perhaps this will all be cleared up, but as it stands Titans #13 is the weakest issue in the series by far.

Titans (2016) #14

Aug 11, 2017

Overall Titans is an enjoyable book, and even if it is not a pinnacle of the Rebirth line up, it is most certainly a lot better entry than any of the New 52 books. Always a plus.

Titans (2016) #15

Sep 13, 2017

One of the best parts of this chapter was how everything else was in a background, including the impending doom that is coming. None of that mattered as much as the family and team building going on in the foreground. These core principles are truly what the creative team must consider most important, and it's a good thing. As I've said before, family and teamwork are what was missing in the Titans books during the New 52 era. I'm glad to have them back.

Titans (2016) Annual #1

Apr 3, 2017

Overall, this Annual is very solid edition to the Titans story, as well as a greater Rebirth line up. If you are already picking up Titans rest assured its in the spirit of that book. Also pick it up if you want to get another piece of a Rebirth puzzle.

X-Men: Gold (2017) #1

Apr 10, 2017

X-Men Gold is a good introduction for the new readers that have not picked up an X-Men book lately while also being good for old readers that have not become too jaded with the status quo. It's those in the middle–the jaded readers who do not like all of the major changes to this property–that will be hard to win over, but if X-Men Gold can sustain a continuous run, it has a chance to grab them too.
