Batman: Lost #1

Nov 10, 2017

If you are just looking for a fun time in the Dark Nights: Metal story, you might want to avoid this. On the other hand, if you want something to challenge you to interpret, then go out and pick this up. While the story itself is all forms of insane, the art takes advantage of this trip and gives us something nightmarish yet delightful to look at. It's not for everyone, but for the minority who enjoy such bizarre tales, they will certainly enjoy this one.

Super Sons #12

Jan 19, 2018

While beautiful to look at, the epilogue of this story has a major break in logic in the aftermath. While it is nice to see Damian and Jon grow as characters, the lack of problem-solving from the Titans drag the issue down hard. If you stayed with this arc up to this point, I would say pick it up. If not, take a pass on it.
