Archie (2015) #31

Jun 6, 2018

One of the major strengths of Mark Waid's work with Archie is the pacing and that holds true with Archie #31. The issue kicks off with just the right amount of urgency and maintains the energy through to the last panel. Unfortunately, this issue falls into the same trap that most of the previous issues have before it, and that is that it sets up little cliffhangers that simply aren't necessary.

The Jetsons (2017) #5

Mar 7, 2018

If you're not accustomed to the Jetson family's comic book adventures -- which are quite a departure from the classic cartoon -- the whole run of The Jetsons may be a little jarring. However, if you can get past that and the somewhat distracting and haphazard art, The Jetsons #5 is very much worth reading.

The Jetsons (2017) #6

Apr 4, 2018

A solid end to the story, Jetsons #6 wraps up all of the narrative threads over the course of the limited series, but even though the book ends on an optimistic note, the final chapter of the possible end of the world seems a little bloated and overly complicated without any real need or solid explanation of what's happening.

The Power of the Dark Crystal #12

Mar 14, 2018

Every word of the story and ever image of art deliver with deftness and grace the maximum amount of emotion and power, making for a truly powerful tale with a powerful message: the sum of the parts is always greater than the individual when we come together.

Trinity (2016) #18

Feb 21, 2018

It feels like the real payoff is coming in the next issue, though Trinity #18 is worth your time if for nothing else than Batman riding a unicorn.

Trinity (2016) #19

Mar 14, 2018

For all of the battle and intrigue leading up to the conclusion of the "No Home For You Here" arc, Trinity #19 is a boring, long-winded, disappointment leading up to the least surprising reveal you could imagine.

Trinity (2016) #20

Mar 28, 2018

There is no kind way to say this: Trinity #20 is another disappointing, boring, poorly written issue of a once-promising title.

Trinity (2016) #21

Apr 11, 2018

Forced setup, superfluous fighting, the heroes seeming to be a little slow to figure things out -- it's starting to feel like the end of Trinity might already be here.

Trinity (2016) #22

Apr 25, 2018

A boring villain with a boring and ridiculous motivation combined with a too-easy conclusion is uninspired and a sad ending to what should have been a stellar book.

Wayward #26

Jun 20, 2018

With an intriguing story, haunting realism, and a dose of optimism Wayward #26 might be the most perfect comic book you read this week.

Weapon X (2017) #14

Feb 14, 2018

Weapon X #14 is a perfect close to the "Nuke-Clear War" arc, one that you don't' want to miss.

Weapon X (2017) #15

Mar 14, 2018

All in all, it's a pretty boring issue, but what takes the issue from being passable to being borderline intolerable is the messy look of Roland Boschi's art. Boschi is a talented artist, but it just doesn't work this issue, which is particularly a letdown considering last issue was truly fantastic.

For the first time in awhile there's a reason to wonder what happens next, and that's enough to consider this issue a success.

Weapon X (2017) #19

Jun 6, 2018

While Weapon X #19 doesn't quite deliver on the set up from last issue, it does lead to a satisfying status quo change of sorts for the team and that alone is worth reading for.

Weapon X (2017) #20

Jul 4, 2018

For as much fun as the issue is story-wise Ricardo Lopez Ortiz's art is so chaotic and messy in places that it's distracting.

X-Men: Gold (2017) #27

May 2, 2018

The real issue with X-Men Gold #27 is the lackluster art. Geraldo Borges' work this issue is inconsistent and messy, making the whole issue a little bit of a chore to read.
