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.

I like the direction of many of these storylines, but I felt like there was a lack of focus in the issue. The threads that are the most interesting seems to be lost a little bit. I actually found myself more interested in the office politics going on at the Planet than most of the fire storyline.

Bendis is definitely taking Superman to some really interesting and unknown territory in this book. Rather than having him deal with bigger than life villains and averting global destruction, this issue and the previous ones seem to spend a good amount of time dealing with the limitations of Superman's reach in Metropolis and how his mission can be perverted by those with ill intent.

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.

Barberi's art is amazing. I love the anime style of it and there are so many great moments and panels that it's hard to pick one or two to discuss. The way Barberi composes a panel is great and so many of them show great detail and action. It's a shame this is a 12 issue series because this story could continue with this creative team behind it.

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.

The beginning of this issue was promising. It looked like it was going to delve deeper into the mystery of T'Challa, how he lost his memories and what his connection to the empire of Wakanda is. Unfortunately, the story veered into a standard action story with the invasion of the base and everything that was building from a character perspective got pushed to the side for the sake of introducing a new villain.

It's great that Tynion is taking the time to play out some family drama with Bruce that actually gives an insight into the man's parents other than perpetual victims. The only downside to the issue is Ulysses. While his plan is interesting, his turn towards the end of the issue felt flat.

This is a great standalone style of story that gets to the heart of who Batman is, what he means to the city and what he's willing to do to protect it and its people. It's a small story that didn't need to be dragged out to get to the core of its purpose and I appreciate that about it. Well told, well-paced and great art make it an issue worth reading.

When Bruce goes back on patrol, Alfred tells him that the drive they recovered with Duke contains an audio file. An audio file that gives information regarding the fact that this new player in Gotham knows who Bruce is and that his motives are to remove those close to him in order to make Batman stronger. It's a motive that has played out in other stories so I find myself hesitant, but this first part of the arc is well done in establishing the threat, the limits of it, the motives as well as how much this character seems to know. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long before he reveals himself.

“The Flash War” is starting to get good because there are some pretty big stakes involved for both Barry and Wally. Wally is willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of saving his children and Barry is trying to convince him that there has to be another way. Their back and forth is the product of some good writing from Williamson and the art from Porter is electric. Both characters have a valid argument to be made and their conflict looks like it is going to create something huge for all speedsters going forward.

The art was good in the issue, but it didn't stand out as much as the art in previous arcs. It looks really good in the action portions of the book but looks flat when dealing with the more personal, character-driven scenes. A good start to an arc that looks like it's going to be more character driven.

As far as how the story is resolved, Simon is used effectively in his confrontations with Jessica. Constantine manages to find an insight that might help both of them. I also like that there is something brewing at the end of this issue that will cause some tension between Jessica, Simon, and someone connected to both of them. There are some good character moments in this issue and a possible evolution of Jessica as a character, but the main antagonist still stretches credibility with me as a viable threat.

Jessica manages to escape and finds herself at a space port looking for the contact she let get away and this is another moment that gives way too much credit to Jessica Cruz as a character. I like her as a character overall, but the one thing that has yet to be explored for her is a sense that she is crafty enough to evade capture or move within the fringes of the galaxy in opposition to the other Lanterns who have been doing the job a lot longer. Without context, this story seems flat both in character and motivation.

Also, many of the conflicts in this issue could be resolved with a conversation.

Concentrating the bulk of the story and exposition on Martian Manhunter and later, Lex Luthor gave the story a great sense of focus. It took the burden off the hands of characters that we expect to lead a narrative and allows for the focus to be on this bigger story forming around them. The juxtaposition between the League's deliberations about this incoming entity heading their way and Luthor's reaction creates some great dramatic tension, especially knowing that Luthor seems to know more than he's letting on. There is a really interesting mystery forming in this book and I can't wait to see where it goes.

Snyder has done a great job of telling a big story through the seemingly narrow focus of two characters, Lex and J'onn. I also like that both teams are still dealing with personal and professional issues and the series is setting up some great mysteries, especially with Barry and the Speed Force as well as what Lex really knows and what's he's willing to reveal in his quest for truth. Also, the way the story stays new while reminding readers that it is a progression from Metal to No Justice to Justice League is great. It continues building on a world and characters that readers have embraced since Rebirth. Jimenez' art is stellar and every panel is great to look at both in camera angle and details.

Spawn #288

Aug 1, 2018

McFarlane does a great job in this issue of building the tension in every scene until Spawn is ready to be unleashed. It's an exercise it narrative restraint to allow for the background action and side characters to drive so much of the narrative.

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.

Gillen has really nailed the narrative in this issue and arc. It would be easy to turn over the storytelling to the visuals because of how much of it takes place in battle, but Gillen manages to find a way to elevate the story elements to the same level as the visuals and both work hand in hand to deliver a great issue and a tense story.
