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.

Adam Strange / Future Quest Special #1

Mar 29, 2017

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.

The Merc may still have a mouth, but he's no longer using it to be a good guy anymore. Deadpool is returning to his villainous nature and getting ready to do the wrong thing for the right reasons (at least to him). The story is really good at mining Wade's desperation and the artwork is vicious and gorgeous.

Hopefully, the series leans into the story of a hero betrayed because that story feels more interesting.

Justice League of America (2017) #8

Jun 14, 2017

Really well plotted thriller elements work well in this issue and kept me interested. The art is well done, but the artist isn't given much in the way of action.

The one on one interactions between the team members continues to work from a story perspective, but this arc is starting with weak visuals and a story that feels too short.

This is a satisfying conclusion to the story. Both the plot and the artwork convey the frenetic and frenzied energy of the conclusion and it is definitely worth the read. More of this going forward.

The story is interesting but the exposition in many of the scenes would have been more effective had we seen the events the characters were talking about. The artwork is good, but the colors make everything flat to the point where nothing truly pops on the page.

Secret Empire #9

Aug 23, 2017

After finding some bright spots with the last issue, this one seemed to take a pretty mediocre turn in both the action and storytelling. The cover art suggested some action that is not to be had in the issue and Hydra Steve's plans just seem a little goofy at this point.

It's finally over and Spencer ended it in a way that doesn't redeem the run itself, but does satisfy the overall story and the journey of its heroes. More interested in the aftermath to come.

Secret Empire: Omega #1

Sep 13, 2017

This issue was enjoyable on many levels, especially in the confrontation between Steve and Hydra Steve over who's ideals are the most resilient. It would have been nice to see some of this internal conflict play out over the previous series, but this issue is well done in telling a compelling story of dual ideologies.

Star Trek: New Visions #1

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.

The story is very good at making the reader care about these kids in this unique situation. It shows the gravity of their circumstances, but still allows them to be kids. The artwork is well done and serves the youthful dynamic of the story.
