Batwoman (2017) #16

Jun 21, 2018

The pacing was great, and the art was consistent and did its part to aid in telling the story. It is clear from the ending that Kate Kane's days as Batwoman may be numbered, but this adds to the issue and lends it a greater feeling of importance.

Catwoman (2018) #1

Jul 5, 2018

This book is a solid read. However, if you are worried about spoilers for Batman #50, make sure you read that issue first. It takes Catwoman from a vulnerable position and thrusts her straight into the action.

DC/Looney Tunes: The Joker/Daffy Duck #1

Aug 30, 2018

This was a well written book, however the appearance of Daffy is a little jarring and distracting.

Doom Patrol (2016) #12

Oct 31, 2018

This is probably one of the best all around books Ive seen in a while. Doom Patrol #12 embraces the fantasy theme and goes all in, in a big, fun way. 5 out of 5 stars.

Eclipse #10

Sep 5, 2018

If youre a fan of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, or just a good read, this issue is a must read. It hits on all aspects, and while not as colourful as some books, more colour would take away from the atmosphere. This creative team is worth checking out. Eclipse #10 is 4.5 stars out of 5.

Electric Warriors #1

Nov 17, 2018

This mini-series has a good start, and while it opens with a fight, the rest of the issue is setting the stage and fleshing out this new world. The art and story are engaging, but its the colour work that really shines in this book. 4 out of 5 stars.

Mother Panic #4

Jun 29, 2018

Overall this was a really good book. As it is aimed at mature readers it does have a darker tone and explores darker themes than a typical DC book. It is well paced, and the art does set a good tone and support the story well. Its also accessible. I had no trouble following and keeping up with the story, even though this issue is the fourth book in the current arc.

Outpost Zero #1

Jul 11, 2018

For a debut issue this book does a great job introducing its characters and their environment. It is an oversized issue, and the additional pages are well utilized and needed. There is a lot here and it McKeever and Tefekgi do a good job leaving readers wanting more. If youre looking for a good sci fi book to really sink your teeth into this issue is worth picking up.

Scooby Doo Where Are You? #92

Apr 11, 2018

Overall, this was a fun issue of Scooby Doo. I found the three stories to be well paced, and though each of the mysteries is predictable, the attention to the presentation of the Mystery Inc. gang as they work their way through them makes for a well paced and surprisingly fun issue. This issue is clearly designed to keep readers engaged beginning to end, and when it ends leaves you wanting for more.

Super Sons #15

Apr 18, 2018

This was a pretty good book overall. As mentioned above it is the first book in a new story arc, which makes it an accessible read to someone that doesnt usually follow this series, and because of this there is a lot of exposition. One of the nice things that Peter J. Tomasi does is interspersing the exposition with character development, humour, and one good action scene. The cliff-hanger leaves us really wondering what will happen next, and really raises the stakes for the next issue. This book is a fairly easy read, and quite enjoyable. Its not a challenging story or ground-breaking, but being a book focused on the friendship of Superboy and Robin, it doesnt need to be.

The Batman Who Laughs (2018) #1

Dec 14, 2018

The Terrifics #3

Apr 26, 2018

This issue did have some bright spots and did lay some groundwork for some potentially interesting future stories but standing on its own felt like it was lacking.
