A.D.: After Death #3

May 12, 2017

This entire series is worth reading from beginning to end. The characters are wonderfully three dimensional and the conflicts work both on the page and in the reader's mind. The artwork is brilliant and enhance every page of this story. It is unique, bold and worth reading.

Action Comics (2016): Special #1

There really doesn't seem to be much reason for this story. It doesn't illuminate anything for any of the characters and the resolution to the story doesn't illicit any emotion. I think this is a good idea for a story that just didn't find itself.

I wanted to like this issue more than I did. Coming out of the previous issue, I was hoping that there would be more substantive storytelling leading up to the big Norman Osborn arc, but this issue felt rushed. The Loki/Spider-Man dynamic was handled well but the issues with Peter's job and relationship with Bobbi felt lazy, especially the latter.

I'm not going to lie, the moment between John Stewart and General Zod is one of my favorite recent moments in comics because it was handled so well that you never saw it coming until the final moment. Well done story wise and visually. The whole issue is raising the stakes of this impending conflict and it looks like there are going to be some dark times coming for everyone involved. Something that could be incredibly fun to read if the creative team continues on this trajectory.

What's about to complicate matters and add a new wrinkle to this story is Amanda Waller and her plan is interesting as well. Both the art and writing in this issue create a story that hooks me, but there are moments that seem a little rushed.

Star Trek: New Visions #1

Jun 6, 2017

The first story is interesting and fun to read. The author knows how to capture the emotional feel of the original series with the first story. The remaining stories are fluff that serve no real purpose and are a little mundane.

Star Wars: Captain Phasma #1

Sep 8, 2017

This first issue does a good job of filling us in on what happened to Phasma at the end of Force Awakens, it also gives a sense of the desperation she must be feeling in trying to cover up her role in the destruction of Starkiller Base. A good read.
