Aquaman (2016) #38

Jul 27, 2018

Abnett's writing and Federici's art combine for an strong conclusion to a story that might have went on a little too long.

Batman (2016) #61

Dec 26, 2018

Overall, this issue is in a weird place. Instead of picking up where the previous issue left off,Batman #61seems like filler. It doesn't help that this new character feels like a rehash of other Gotham villains.

Doomsday Clock #7

Sep 29, 2018

Doomsday Clock #7 finally picks up the pace. If we get this level of quality in future issues, they'll be worth the wait.

Aug 11, 2018

Following the excellent Flash War story, The Flash #52 is sub-par filler that hopefully leads to something more interesting in the future.

Green Lanterns #53is a step in the right direction for Dan Jurgens. While previous issues left something to be desired, this issue offers great action and intriguing concepts.

The Batman Who Laughs (2018) #1

Dec 15, 2018

If you're looking for a Batman story that is a little more grounded, this could be right up your alley. I'm really looking forward to what Snyder and Jock have in store for this series.
