Aquaman (2016) #58

Mar 18, 2020

The issue does an exceptional job at setting up what’s to come by taking its time to set up the conflict on the horizon and giving believable motivations for all the characters. Not only are the characters written well, they’re drawn beautifully too! This issue hits all the marks and I’m excited to see what comes next in this series.

I cannot praise the art in this book enough, the whole team coordinates to deliver an emotionally charged tale. Bog Bodies is an incredible read that you should definitely pick up if you're a fan of crime stories.

Captain Marvel (2019) #15

Feb 22, 2020

Captain Marvel #15 hits every beat and marks another great issue in Kelly Thompson's run. If you've been at all curious about this series, go pick up this arc. The art and writing are completely in sync and is worth being on your pull list.

Catwoman (2018) #21

Mar 11, 2020

Catwoman #21 makes for a fitting conclusion to this chapter of Selina’s life in Villa Hermosa. Joëlle Jones continues to deliver a solid Catwoman series and though Selina may be up against a zombie horde, Fernando Blanco and FCO Plascencia make certain your eyes stay glued to each page.

Harley Quinn (2016) #71

Mar 4, 2020

Harley’s series has never been better: accessible, great art and absolutely fun. Humphries and team bring their A-game and deliver an issue worthy of Harleen the Queen.

Justice League Dark (2018) #20

Feb 26, 2020

This is a great start to the Parliaments of Life arc for Justice League Dark and makes for a good jumping on point for new readers. The whole team syncs and delivers an incredible issue. I can’t wait to see where the rest of this arc will take us.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) #44

Mar 25, 2020

Red Hood Outlaw #44 continues the mystical mission the Outlaws are on and while it makes for a fascinating plot, this issue falls short on its delivery. There are some great scenes between Bizarro and Jason, but not much else offered.

Strange Adventures (2020) #1

Mar 4, 2020

I love this issue; I keep finding myself going back to it to read the Rann portions to see what more I can learn about Pykkts and Gerad’s work to see what I can tell about Alanna and Adam’s relationship by their glances. Strange Adventures offers a layered read and is sure to build to an incredible story.

Wonder Woman (2016) #752

Feb 26, 2020

If seeing Wonder Woman duke it out with a medieval knight is your jam, then you’ll want to pick up this issue. It’s a fun read, though a tad slow to get into the meat of this arc. The art alone is worth the price of admission for this brawl.

Wonder Woman (2016) #753

Mar 11, 2020

We come to the end of the Iron Maiden arc in this issue, and though it closes this chapter on a fitting note for Diana and Valda, the pacing cuts us from establishing an emotional connection with Valda. The art suffers, possibly from such a rapid release schedule, but still has lots to offer.

Wonder Woman (2016) #755

May 19, 2020

Wonder Woman#755 makes for a solid introduction to ‘The Four Horsewomen’ arc and utilizes Orlando’s previous issues to drive the righteousness of Warmaster’s ambitions.
