Mera: Tidebreaker #1

Apr 3, 2019

It really could have focused on the teenage activism that gets touched upon in the first part of the story as well as rounded out Pilan and Hikara who seem like great characters. It also would have firmly cemented Mera in her own story rather than rushing her off to be a part of Aquaman's origin. As it isMera: Tidebreaker tries to be too many stories at once and doesn't quite land any of them.

Pretty Deadly: The Rat #1

Sep 6, 2019

Pretty Deadly: The Rat #1sets up this new arc beautifully. It reintroduces the characters we have been apart from for so long and sets up the new setting and story in an engaging way leading readers to all sorts of questions as to how and why Clara Fields died and how Frank and Ginny will solve the mystery. Each volume of Pretty Deadly is both familiar and completely brand new at the same time and The Rat is no exception. A fine return to the world set up in previous volumes with a new framing and story-telling style, it sets up the rest of the arc in a way that the questions introduced can't be answered quick enough.
