Batman (2016) #77

Aug 21, 2019

Batman #77 is a shot of Venom to the arm for the main Bat-Title, providing us with a fast-paced and engaging story that delivers one of the best Damian Wayne moments in DC Canon. The only major let-down is a story development towards the end of the book which doesn't quite land the way it should.

Batman (2016) #78

Sep 11, 2019

Overall, Batman #78 is a fun first part of an interlude that dives deep into the relationship between Batman and Catwoman. It is strengthed by the writer and artists' adoration for the story, but the abrupt change in pace may upset those who wanted to see the aftermath of the previous issues' cliffhanger.

Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #5

Mar 8, 2019

Overall, I can't say enough good things about this issue. It's everything that Doctor Who does best. It is a fun historical story, with good characters, funny and intriguing dialogue all while ending on a great cliffhanger. Plus, beinga comic book only helps to enhance that experience with the help of Rachael Stott's spellbinding artwork.

Overall, this is an interesting issue with some absolutely gorgeous colors and artwork, funny moments and a lot of Wally West. However, fans looking for a definitive answer still have an issue or two to get before we get that.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) #30

Jan 16, 2019

So, overall Red Hood: Outlaw #30has decent art, but a slow-paced story. However, that story is starting to really kick off and makes you want to come back for more.

Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016) Annual #3

Jul 31, 2019

It's been a rough time for the Bat-Kids in the DC universe, but it looks at though Jason's life may be back on track soon if his friends manage to find their way back. The core of these characters and their outsider nature works so well for this book. Hopefully, the team will be reunited and will continue adventures for years to come. If you're not an avid reader of Red Hood and the Outlaws, this annual may not be the best jumping-on point for new readers " but if you are? It's a great little backstory.
