Heroes In Crisis #8

Apr 24, 2019

This is it. The moment readers have been waiting for since the first issue of Heroes in Crisis hit the shelves back in September. Though the big revelation should be the apex of this issue, it's the character study - nay, deconstruction - that drives the book, and the series as a whole.

For fans of the original series, Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Sirens #1 is good for the kids and for the inner-child. It's simplistic, but worth a look.

Justice League (2018) #27

Jul 3, 2019

The story and artwork featuring Martian Manhunter is strong and on point, making up for the middle pages in "Apex Predator" which comes off as a bit flimsy.

Jul 17, 2019

While the scene with the Justice League felt a bit off, it was the moments between Lex Luthor and J'onn J'onnz that made this issue as gripping as it is.

Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter #1

Apr 17, 2019

Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter #1 is a slow burning introduction. It doesn't thrust the reader into the action, but offers some promise at the end of the issue.

Miskatonic High #2

May 7, 2019

Miskatonic High is a satisfying balance fun and frights, with snarky, nonplussed characters and exceptionally designed monsters. Come for the Lovecraftian horrors, stay the fun characters and the dangerous mysteries to be solved.

The Dreaming (2018) #7

Mar 6, 2019

With a new arc and artist, the story takes a (hopefully) brief detour from the chaos in the realm of The Dreaming. Still, it's a well-structured tale of tragedy and Desire, that devotees of the original SANDMAN might appreciate more than new readers.
