Batman and the Outsiders (2019) #1

May 8, 2019

Soy is not an artist that I have personally seen a lot of. However, what work I have seen of his has been action heavy, and that is a style that works in a book like Batman and the Outsiders #1. In the early panels, we get to see him flex his strength as an artist as the heroes fight for their lives in battle. The characters are portrayed as strong and ready to dispatch their enemies. The sharp lines help make the heroes jump off of the pages as they take the typical superhero poses. And crashes of lightning help to create a contrast between the dark setting of Gotham and the brightness of the hero suits.

Batman: Last Knight on Earth #2

Jul 31, 2019

With only three issues left to tell the story, Last Knight on Earth #2 does an excellent job moving the story forward. We end up with a clear direction for Batman to be successful in his mission. However, with the big reveal at the end, Snyder leaves us guessing as to how successful he might be.

Black Cat (2019) #1

Jun 10, 2019

Black Cat #1 is a fun read for fans of the character. It does an excellent job of building upon recent events while also being accessible. The introduction of new characters and the continuation of other stories allow for the ability to go in several different directions. Meanwhile, the back-up stories give a foundation for new characters.

House of X #1

Jul 26, 2019

There is a lot going on in House of X #1, yet it feels concise. There is nothing that feels like filler. Instead, by the end of the book, the new status quo feels established. At the same time, it is obvious that Hickman is placing clues to the overall picture of this story. Hickman takes the time to establish the X-Men within the current Marvel universe confirming that this is not an alternative reality. Fans who have been waiting for the next instant classic like Morrison's run should be pleased with this first chapter for Hickman and company.

Powers of X #1

Jul 31, 2019

After the first two issues of Hickmans X-Men run, it is obvious that this truly is a new jumping-on point. Everything that you would expect from a Hickman event is here so far. Marvel has assigned art teams that are up to the task of keeping up with Hickmans storytelling. So strap in as it is obvious that Hickman and his team have an amazing story they are going to tell.
