Action Comics (2016) #985

Adventures of the Super Sons #1

Adventures of the Super Sons #2

Reading Super Sons each month is a true pleasure. This title has a playfulness that reminds me of Peter David's Young Justice (I miss that title). How can you not love a book that makes Superman Red, Superman Blue into a family tradition? I can't wait to see how this plays out in next month's issue.

Although this title may not be as high-profile as Doomsday Clock or Heroes In Crisis, it is still one of my favourite titles. The writing is charming and witty and art is superb – and it's always the most fun book in the week's stack of comics.

Adventures of the Super Sons #6

Jan 9, 2019

It seems somewhat strange that this issue is appearing the same week as the debut of Young Justice, a title that features a different Superboy and Robin (Conner and Tim). DC hasn't made clear if and how both these duos can co-exist, but I hope that DC somehow finds a way that allows Jon and Damian to continue their adventures as the Super Sons, as this is one of DC's best books of the post-Flashpoint era.

Adventures of the Super Sons #7

Feb 7, 2019

Tomasi's Super Sons has been one of the best things to come out of Rebirth, and it would be a shame to see it end with the final issue of this miniseries. Hopefully their adventures will continue in some form regardless of whatever changes DC has in store for Jon and Damian. In any case, I will savor each issue of this series while it lasts.

Adventures of the Super Sons #8

Mar 8, 2019

Tomasi is a master at writing fun stories with strong characterization and snappy dialogue. I find that his stories about Superboy and Robin strongly reminiscent of Peter David's Young Justice, which is high praise. Unfortunately, just like that late, lamented title, I don't think DC realizes what they're losing. Perhaps DC might consider having Tomasi do another flashback mini like this one at some point in the future.

All-Star Batman #14

Oct 5, 2017

This series has given us a fresh look at some important figures in the Batman mythos, Two-Face and Alfred Pennyworth. In fact, this new redefinition of Alfred provides much more depth to the character without changing or contradicting anything we already knew about him. And it reaffirms a vitally important, but mostly overlooked fact that Alfred is Bruce's father as much as Thomas Wayne was. And that by itself is enough to mark this as a truly great Batman story.

Dec 7, 2021

Regardless of your feelings about Tynion's previous run on Batman or Williamson's run on The Flash, I urge you to check out. Batman #118 clearly shows that Williamson understands the character and bodes well for the title for however long he remains as the writer.

Jan 4, 2022

While I much enjoyed King's and Tynion's Batman runs, I am finding Williamson's story to be a refreshing change of pace. After Williamson's epic Flash run, I have high expectations for his Batman run. And so far, he's not disappointing. And I am totally enamoured with Kerschl's backup story with Maps. Batman #119 has been an utter delight all-round.

While I enjoyed James Tynion IV's run on Batman, Joshua Williamson's take is still a refreshing change from the Joker War and Fear State events. And Karl Kerschl's backup story with Maps is a delightful treat. While it's probably too much to hope for a permanent backup series with Maps, maybe DC should consider giving us a revival of Gotham Academy?

Batman Beyond #44 is another fine issue that demonstrates Jurgens' skill as a writer, as well as the artistic talent of the two Seans. Under Jurgens' care, this title has remained a worthy continuation of the Batman Beyond cartoon series.

While many of DC's titles are great reads most of the time, Batman Beyond manages to maintain a high quality. Jurgens has managed to take a property that I only sort of liked and make it into one of my favourite titles. If you're not reading this title, I urge you to give it a look.

Aug 31, 2020

Batman Beyond #46 once again demonstrates why DC was wise to make him the caretaker of the Batman Beyond universe. Jurgens' writing shows a respect for the original source material, but also isn't afraid to further expand the mythos. This title consistently proves to be a worth continuation of the original cartoon series.

Dec 22, 2020

On the whole, comic book adaptations from other media tend to be somewhat forgettable. It's very hard for a comic book to capture the essence of the original. But Dan Jurgens has managed to capture the essence of the Batman Beyond cartoon in this series. It's a worthy continuation of the series that is worthy of being considered canon. I will miss reading this title, but here's hoping Terry will be returning soon.

While the Rogues usually make for an interesting story, they always have seemed rather under-powered compared to the Flash. Williamson has finally made the Rogues into a believable threat to the scarlet speedster. The Flash is always one of my favourite books each month and The Flash #85 has not broken that trend.

The Flash has been one of my favourite titles of the Rebirth era. I think this is because Williamson seems to have a good grasp of the character of Barry Allen. Not just all the qualities that make him great, but also the weaknesses that make him human. Williamson's entire run has been about Barry learning to come to grips with those weaknesses to become the best hero he can be.

While I never disliked the character, I never really expected that a Harley Quinn book would be one of my favourite titles. Stephanie Phillips has made me care about the character in a way I never really have before, and has me eager to read the latest chapter every month.

Harley Quinn (2021) Annual: 2021

Sep 9, 2021

The Harley Quinn 2021 Annual gives us an an interesting look at Harley's sidekick Kevin, while filling us in on Keepsake's backstory. It's an amusing tale that offers both laughs, but with an introspective undertone. Stephanie Phillips' take on Harley has made this a much more interesting and enjoyable title than I expected at first.

The Human Target #1 as an auspicious start to Tom King's latest Black Labe series. If Tom King can keep up the momentum, this series could well be as much a masterpiece as Mister Miracle was. But even apart from King's story, the title is worth buying for Smallwood's gorgeous art itself.

The Human Target #5 is a unique issue of this series, but in a way that makes perfect sense within the terms of the story. A telepathic battle is rather tricky to convey properly in a visual medium, but Tom King and Greg Smallwood have pulled it off beautifully. If the rest of this series maintains the quality evident in the first few issues, The Human Target will surely prove to be another Tom King classic title.

Ridley's story is showing us how Jace is proving himself and growing into the role of Batman and this is best done out of Bruce's shadow. Putting Jace in a different, but not entirely dissimilar city allows the new Dark Knight to establish himself with minimal reliance on Bruce's reputation. Ridley's story is an interesting deconstruction of the character that asks if one has to be Bruce Wayne to succeed as a Batman. It's an intriguing premise and I look forward to seeing how it plays out as Jace's saga continues.

I Am Batman #8 is a rather thought-provoking issue of John Ridley's Batman saga. It illustrates that the book's title is well-chosen. It represents what Jace is saying about his heroic identity, but the intonation is evolving as the story progresses. At first, it was a somewhat presumptuous declaration: “I Am Batman!”. Now, it's becoming more of a question”. I think it may eventually become a statement again, and may even evolve to become “I Am The Batman”.

Justice League #25 concludes the Sixth Dimension storyline, and now we finally get to the main event that DC has been teasing for a while now. As we start into this epic crossover event, we will find if Snyder and Tynion's high-stakes gamble will ultimately pay off or fizzle out. I'm betting on the former.

VerdictThere's not a lot of action in this issue, but the tension is clearly building as the League is drawing on all their resources to ready themselves for the ultimate war of Justice vs. Doom. We are on the edge of DC's most ambitious event yet. Scott Snyder has been quoted as saying about Justice League, I wouldnt call it anything but an event book going forward.” He and James Tynion IV are definitely delivering on that promise.

Snyder and Tynion have now set up the ultimate high-stakes fight between the forces of Justice and Doom. The entire multiverse is on the line and Lex Luthor is at the height of his power. Justice League looks to be the title where the fate of the entire DCU is going to be determined. Skipping this story is not an option for any serious DC fan.

Snyder and Tynion have raised the stakes of the Justice/Doom War to the highest possible level, which is an extremely risky move. This storyline will either be a huge success or fall completely flat. Now that we're getting into the thick of the conflict, it seems as if their gamble is paying off.

Of all the different universe-shattering Crises in the history of the DCU, none of them have come close to matching the mind-bogglingly grandiose scale of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths. But, now Snyder and Tynion have not only matched this scale, but have taken us past it and to a whole new level. They have taken the League into uncharted territory, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Hopefully, Bendis will get his story back on track next issue, but who knows when it come to a Bendis story?

On the other hand, I'm glad to hear that Ram V's Justice League Dark is graduating to its own title soon. His story more than deserves it.

DC should keep Zdarksy in mind for the job when Bendis eventually moves on from writing Justice League. But until then, I'd love to see a sequel project starring the Justice League Universal.

While I still would prefer the classic Captain Marvel, Johns is giving us an interesting modern alternative version of the character. There is definitely potential for this series, despite the major changes to the core canon. And oddly it does seem to keep some of the original delightful silliness of the golden age comics that the modern DC Captain Marvel comics had lost. I wouldn't say that I prefer this version over the classic, but it is fun to read if you're willing to judge it on its own merits instead of measuring it against the classic version.

VerdictEven though Shazam! has many of the trappings, of the classic Captain Marvel, it is best seen as its own thing. The differences are wide enough that it will likely turn off staunch traditionalists. However, if you can look at it as its own thing, a new interpretation for a new era, then it is a quite fun and enjoyable reading experience. Where a lot of the DC line has been veering away from the renewed optimism promised by Rebirth, Shazam! is doing a wonderful job of keeping that positive spirit alive.

Once again, this is my favourite book of the current crop. It perfectly reflects DC's Rebirth ethos by taking us for a walk down memory lane while adding to the mythos of Superman and the new Superboy – an amalgamation of the old and the new.

This title is easily my favourite title of the Rebirth relaunch. It has returned Superman to his pre-New 52 level of greatness, but has also shown us a whole new side to Superman – Superman the husband and father. DC has taken a big chance in carrying Superman's story forward in such a manner, but thanks to Tomasi and Gleason's adept storytelling, this direction has paid off in spades.

Superman: Son of Kal-El (2021) #4

Oct 27, 2021

Superman: Son of Kal-El #4 was another great issue of Tom Taylor's fantastic new series. Taylor has been hitting all the right notes on this title so far. Getting DC fans to accept a new Superman is a formidable task, but I trust that if anyone can do it, it would be Tom Taylor. And so far, Taylor is proving me right.

Superman: Son of Kal-El (2021) #5

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 is another stellar story from Tom Taylor and John Timms. At this point, I'm convinced that Taylor couldn't write a bad story if he deliberately tried to do so. I look forward to seeing what else Taylor has planned for Jon in the upcoming months.

Superman: Son of Kal-El (2021) #6

Jan 18, 2022

Superman: Son of Kal-El #6 is another stellar issue from Tom Taylor and and John Timms. While I'm still unconvinced that aging Jon to adulthood was a good move, Taylor is producing some great storytelling based on it. While that decision is still somewhat a bitter pill, Taylor's series is making it somewhat easier to swallow.

Superman: Son of Kal-El #7 is another fine issue from Tom Taylor with great artwork from Cian Tormey and Raul Fernandez. This issue is a perfect example of why Taylor's series was awarded the 2022 DCN Award for Best New Title. Congratulations to the title's creators!

Superman: Son of Kal-El (2021) #8

I still have mixed feelings about the premise that this series is build on. However, Tom Taylor has taken that premise and rand with it, producing some great stories. The character of Jon Kent has been horribly mishandled since the cancellation of Tomasi's Superman, but Taylor is giving Jon the respect he deserves.

Superman: Son of Kal-El #9 shows what a gem this title is. While his Nightwing generally gets more appreciation, Taylor is doing a fantastic job on this title as well. Hopefully, this crossover will win over some of the readers who haven't been following this series. This crossover was an amazing story, and I hope it's the first of many.

Tom Taylor and Cian Tormey deliver another great issue with Superman: Son of Kal-El #10. Jon Kent's coming out to his mother was handled perfectly. Tom Taylor is clearly laying the groundwork for a monumental story, and I look forward to seeing the payoff.
