The issue and series overall deliver stellar art and story that is captivating, compelling, and cognizant of our times. It continues to explore the themes of power, love, and truth through a host of new characters and historical themes, with Ahmed weaving the supernatural with its core messages with extreme poise and clarity.

Commanders In Crisis #9

Jun 2, 2021

Commanders in Crisis #9 overall feels like Orlando's primarily preparing for the climax of the story, but it's a necessary setup. Unlike some other comics' expositional issues, this one doesn't feel like a simple filler -- and despite a few lulls, continues to explore the story's themes and character dynamics.

DC Pride (2021) #1

Jun 8, 2021

Despite any qualms around performativity or rainbow-washing I may have with DC, the comic itself contains a plethora of great stories, ranging from cute and charming to heartfelt and intriguing accompanied by gorgeous pinups and cool interviews from DC TV stars. Definitely worth picking up for some fun content and to show DC that this kind of issue is something worth continuing.
