Crone #1

Nov 8, 2019

Crone #1 (Culver, Greenwood, Simpson, Brosseau) has a lot of potential, but it relies greatly on tropes and imagery from other staples of the sword and sorcery genre. Time will tell if this story escapes blending in too much with its predecessors.

Crone #2

While the dive into Blisss past is intriguing, Crone #2 (Culver, Greenwood, Simpson, Brousseau) doesnt quite hit the right notes for a strong continuation of the series.

Crone #3

Feb 3, 2020

Crone #3 (Culver, Greenwood, Simpson, Brousseau) has finally and truly hooked me into Bliss story, in a way that the prior issues have been unable to. Definitely pick up this book if youve been hesitant thus far.

Olympia #1

Nov 26, 2019

Olympia is a valiant but somewhat futile effort to recapture the magic of childhood fantasy.

Olympia #2

Feb 4, 2020

While Olympia #2 (Pires, Diotto, Cunniffe, Myers) is attempting to develop some sort of nostalgic charm, it falls flat under the lightest scrutiny, relying too much on a mix of homage and shock value.

Olympia #3

Feb 10, 2020

Olympian #3 (Pires, Pires, Diotto, Cunniffe, Myers) takes a hard turn away from the tone of the first two issues, for an emotional sucker punch that leaves readers feeling concerned, but not compelled.

Tales From The Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1

Nov 30, 2019

Equal parts compelling and circuitous, Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 (Tynion, Lopresti, Ryan, Fajardo, Leigh) is a compelling story that requires a deep knowledge of comic lore to be fully accessible to the reader.

Tales From The Dark Multiverse: The Judas Contract #1

Dec 12, 2019

Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Judas Contract #1 (Higgins, Groom, Raney, Hi-Fi, Orzechowski) is an interesting take on the tale, but it lacks the same heart as the original story.
