This issue introduces "Noir Electro" who is gleefully designed for the era, though I wish that the dialogue and overall story was able to keep up with the other moving parts.

Ultimately, it's a story that would have benefitted from being a tad smaller, but justifies its own existence without a doubt.

Stake (2021) #1

Jan 13, 2021

The story itself followers the titular hunter living in a world where the vampires' presence has been revealed and tends to take a lot of risks with its story and art, which is definitely hit or miss across the spectrum of this introduction.

Stake continues to have the same problems it's been dealing with since its first issue hit the shelves, wherein it doesn't feel like it has steady footing in its concept.

This latest installment doesn't quite knock it out of the park, but manages to hit a solid "triple" when all is said and done.

Strange Skies Over East Berlin #4

Jan 8, 2020

There are definitely a few changes that could have been made to make it a horror legend, but unfortunately, it falls short. Still worth a read for sure but just a tad beneath what could have been.

The most ironic part of this new series following the Clown Prince of Crime is that the Joker is the most boring part of the story, in a good way.

The Joker is a solid DC comic book and does a great job of exploring the world of the supervillain while also diving into the head of his victims.

The story itself is definitely worth a read, but Francavilla's art feels unfinished here, though the color work still strikes the haunting tone that he's known for.

The Joker (2021) #6

Aug 11, 2021

The Joker #6 does tend to spin its wheels just a tad, but it's clear that Tynion has a good grasp on the world and characters that he is working with, making the comic still well worthy of your time, Joker fan or not.
