Hellblazer (2016) #13

Aug 25, 2017

Overall, the opener to this story has me happy that I picked up the book. Death, drinking, sarcasm, supernatural beings and more death are all in nice balance and the set up for the next issue was a great teaser. Dark things are afoot and it looks like bad times are in store for John. I hope they last.

Supergirl: Rebirth #1

Jun 20, 2017

My overall assessment is this is a solid start for a book. New readers can look forward to a story with lots of energy and heart, established fans can look forward to a treatment that takes the best elements of Supergirl and moves them forward. Supergirl is an icon, and one that hasn't been treated all that well since her death in Crisis on Infinite Earths in my opinion. She was one of the many pieces that never quite fit into place again. If this issue is any indication, DC is finally letting Kara shine again, and is going to remind everyone that she really is a Supergirl.

Wonder Woman (2016) #25

Overall the issue was a solid capstone to Wonder Woman's rebirth and a perfect send off from the creative team. Next issue will see the beginning to an exciting chapter in Diana's life. If it's anything like what we've seen so far, it's going to be an incredible ride.

Wonder Woman (2016) #26

Jul 14, 2017

Ultimately, it was a decent start to a new arc. A few major plot lines seem to have been abandoned unceremoniously, but time will tell on that. A few major plotlines have started, some with a bang (sorry! It was right there, I had to do it). The art and the writing are new and may take some getting used to, but the team has at least thus far shown they've got ideas and they're ready to run with them. Let's see where they go!

Wonder Woman (2016) #27

Jul 26, 2017

If the story had been fleshed out more and given more motivation and meat to it, it could have been a solid start. But as it was, it was so generic it was barely worth telling, and seemed to be an excuse for a sequence of action scenes and some post-battle cookie therapy.

Conclusion: Overall this has become a solid arc, exploring Dianas past and present, her convictions, her friendships, and her heart. After an uncertain startup, I am now looking forward to each new issue and the continuation of a satisfying story.

Wonder Woman (2016) #30

Sep 16, 2017

While the style of both the art and the writing are solid and enjoyable, the Heart of the Amazon storyline has been a rollercoaster of a story in terms of quality. The final leg of the journey was a sharp drop from last issue. I give it points for the team showing its capable, but theyre producing far below what I think theyre capable of. Hopefully the next ride will be more fun and a lot smoother.
