Crime Syndicate (2021) #2

Apr 6, 2021

The plot and story mechanics here still aren't particularly compelling, but there are plenty of fun subversions of the Justice League mythos and smart stylistic choices to keep hardcore fans turning the pages.

Flash (2016) #770

May 18, 2021

Jeremy Adam's clever and eccentric storyline reads like the fun, action-packed, and slightly brain-twisting (read: paradox-filled) ride that the best Flash books often deliver.

Flash (2016) #772

Jul 20, 2021

The Flash #772 is a promising first step in the next chapter of what has already been a stellar series. Its blend of everyday humor with the specter of larger-than-life threats on the horizon strikes a perfect balance that hits the sweet spot that admirers of Wally West and The Flash have come to expect.

Green Lantern (2021) #3

Jun 1, 2021

Geoffrey Thorne and company have proven that they are more than up to the task of creating a new Green Lantern tale that balances the historical grandeur of the lore with novel concepts and interesting new directions. This issue doesn't have quite the scope or expert pacing of the previous two, but the plot developments and character moments are enough to keep patient readers sticking around to find out what comes next.

May 4, 2021

Man-Bat #4 is another solid entry in a mini-series that's fast-paced, well-drawn, and confident enough in its character-driven themes to stand out in a climate where there are a lot of Gotham books being published.

May 25, 2021

The characters and setting are endlessly fun, and the story is brimming with potential both for excitement and satisfying exploration. I'm happy to take it in small doses if they'll all manage to be this sweet.
