Age Of X-Man: X-Tremists #2

Mar 27, 2019

This issue shows the building blocks for a compelling side story, and it's worth checking out to see what they do with three more issues.

Age Of X-Man: X-Tremists #3

American Gods: The Moment of the Storm #1

Apr 17, 2019

While this all read better in novel form, as a comic it leaves many fans feeling like Shadow Moon, impatient and ready to get to the point.

American Gods: The Moment of the Storm #2

May 15, 2019

If you're a fan of the book, this visual adaptation might somehow be fulfilling. But if this is your first exposure to the series, you'll likely find it incredibly dry and plodding.

Avengers: Edge of Infinity #1

Apr 24, 2019

While it's cool to see Ralph Macchio (no, not that one) back in the writing chair, Avengers: Edge of Infinity is nothing to write home about.

Batman Beyond (2016) #30

Mar 27, 2019

The action is solid, Doc Shaner's arrival as the book's new artist is a welcome change and the teased return of another classic villain in the final panels hints at some interesting future events.

Batman Beyond (2016) #31

Apr 24, 2019

While the writing comes off as unusually clunky at times, the twist at the end will leave you smacking your head wondering how you missed it the first time around.

DCeased #1

May 1, 2019

So in order to make a zombie story stand out in 2019 you need two things " a killer spin on the usual narrative and the right atmosphere to match it. And by some miracle, DCeased has both.

Dial H For Hero (2019) #2

Apr 24, 2019

After the spot-on Rob Liefeld parody in the series' opening issue, Dial H for Hero managed to top itself this month by nailing a hysterical Dragon Ball imitation.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #260

Apr 3, 2019

While the A-plot features an entertaining extraction mission led by Cover Girl, GI Joe: A Real American Hero #260 keeps having its story screech to a grinding halt to give a handful of other subplots a page or two's worth of advancement.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #261

Apr 17, 2019

Netho Diaz's detailed artwork for the action scenes continues to be the book's highlight.

Ghost Tree #1

Apr 24, 2019

Gane's art style of detailed backgrounds and muted colors perfectly fits with the tone, and the ending promises a story that's more heart-wrenching than horror.

Looney Tunes #248

Mar 27, 2019

The latest issue of DC's Looney Tunes is headlined by Bugs Bunny in a "Jack and the Beanstalk" parody. And if that sounds familiar, it's because the show did it too with "Beanstalk Bunny" way back in the day. Unfortunately, this version doesn't feature Daffy Duck or Elmer Fudd as The Giant, and it's drained of most of its comedic timing as a result.

Marvel Action: Black Panther #1

Apr 3, 2019

Black Panther is the latest hero to be brought into IDW's all-ages Marvel Action line. And while the story isn't a big attention-grabber (Wakanda getting blasted by deadly weather) it is a nice place for fans of the MCU incarnation of the character to jump in and start reading.

Marvel Team-Up (2019) #1

Apr 3, 2019

While it makes for a bit of an awkward experience if you're reading digitally, writer Eve L. Ewing clearly has fun with the dual-sided perspective in the opening issue of the returning Marvel Team-Up, which sees Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel join forces to take on The Jackal.

Samurai Jack: Lost Worlds #1

May 8, 2019

Samurai Jack stories have always relished on deliberate pacing, but this one felt like it was sprinting to get Jack up, out, and on to the next location.

Spider-Man & The League Of Realms #1

May 15, 2019

Spider-Man & The League of Realms is yet another "War of the Realms" tie-in that, while enjoyable enough, doesn't add much to the ongoing story arc.

Spider-Man: Far From Home - Prelude #2

Apr 24, 2019

The second half of the Spider-Man: Far From Home prelude once again recaps the events from Spider-Man: Homecoming without giving readers any new information.

Symbiote Spider-Man #1

Apr 10, 2019

Peter David and artist Greg Land's Symbiote Spider-Man miniseries is the stuff of dreams for continuity enthusiasts, putting Peter Parker back in the black suit right before the iconic "Alien Costume Saga" began.

Titans (2016) #36

Apr 10, 2019

Dan Abnett does a solid job the final installment of the "Into The Bleed" story arc balancing the action (a brawl between the Titans and Mother Blood) and the emotional moments (a conversation between Raven and a pre-shot Nightwing) that have made his run on the book work so well.

War Of The Realms Strikeforce: The Dark Elf Realm #1

May 1, 2019

It makes for a cool little character piece if you're interested in any of the five members, and there's some funny banter in there as well. But this isn't an absolute must-read for fans of the ongoing event.

It's a fun read overall and a nice supplementary addition to the ongoing event.

Young Justice (2019) #4

Apr 3, 2019

While Bendis' snappy dialogue is fun at first, by this issue readers will likely start wishing a few of the characters would shut up for a second so somebody can bother to explain what's going on.

Young Justice (2019) #5

May 1, 2019

While Young Justice continues to take its sweet time giving away any answers, this issue proves that the series can be much more emotionally resonating when the there aren't half a dozen characters on the page all trying to out-quip each other.
