Action Comics (2016) #1003

Sep 27, 2018

Bendis and Paquette bring another exciting edition of ACTION COMICS, as we get a tease of what Bendis's Batman is like, as well as the developing mystery of the Invisible Mafia and what Lois is doing. Bendis does a great job of weaving these story threads and Paquette's art is pretty and ugly as it needs to be.

Brian Michael Bendis is doing great work on Superman, and ACTION COMICS #1005 is no exception. Ryan Sook returns, and he delivers gorgeous visuals. The arson mystery and the Invisible Mafia slowly unravel, and Red Cloud makes their presence known to Supes!

Action Comics (2016) #1006

Jan 3, 2019

Brian Michael Bendis and Ryan Sook bring us another incredible chapter in this street-level crime story. Bendis has set a lot of pieces in motion on his board, and Sook has gorgeously illustrated them. ACTION COMICS has been one of the better DC Rebirth books; Superman is in good hands!

Electric Warriors #2

Dec 13, 2018

ELECTRIC WARRIORS #2 steps up the action as we see the Electric Warriors, including Ian and Kana, fight for their respective planets. Steve Orlando makes Ian a bit stand-offish, and it's hard to like him. With a compelling plot, but jerky protagonist and visuals that took a step back, this issue was ultimately a step below the first.

Electric Warriors #3

Jan 17, 2019

ELECTRIC WARRIORS #3 is a dark book, as we see what happens to the Electric Warriors after death. The brutality these people face so that their worlds can have peace is a lot, and it's only a matter of time before they rebel!

Justice League (2018) #9

Oct 4, 2018

Snyder and Jimenez deliver an excellently written, well-drawn interlude for the Justice League. We see some of the concerns the League has facing their biggest battle, and look into their hearts. Superman also does something only he can do: fix the moon.

Justice League (2018) #10

Snyder and Manapul bring us into a new storyline with a bang! Hard hitting prelude issue, with lots of big moments and huge implications for the League. Another great issue by Snyder, with gorgeous art by master Manapul.

Justice League (2018) #12

Nov 21, 2018

Snyder kickstarts the Justice League's comeback, as we learn what Poseidon did, and what Arthur and Mera must do. Snyder does a great job of balancing all these plates, and the artwork fits the mood and setting in each instance.

Justice League (2018) #13

Dec 6, 2018

James Tynion IV and Guillem March deliver a chilling rendition of the Joker in JUSTICE LEAGUE #13. As the Legion of Doom recollects itself, Joker strikes out in a horrifying fashion.

Justice League (2018) #14

Dec 19, 2018

Tynion and Snyder team up to tell an intriguing mystery on Thanagar Prime. Nothing is as it seems. Cheung's art is brief but great; Segovia does a very good job with the bulk of the art duties.

Henrichon's art and Rosenberg's writing combine for a very strong chapter in this mystery. The heroes are slowly coming together, but there are still no answers. Will they find them? Do they want to?

Scarlet (2018) #1

Aug 31, 2018

Bendis and Maleev bring back their creator-owned, anti-authority revolutionary at an interesting time in the world. The art is gorgeous and Scarlet's voice is very well defined by her writer.

The Terrifics #11

Jan 3, 2019

Lemire and Bogdonavic deliver another great issue of THE TERRIFICS. The team has separated, but splitting up doesn't mean everyone gets what they wanted. Add the continued threat of Doc Dread and the Terrifics may have to reunite to save themselves... but can they?

THE TERRIFICS ANNUAL #1 gives us three different tales focusing on the team, Java, and Tom Strong. We get a lot of emotional moments, great action and gorgeous art. A great supplemental book to the main series!

The Unexpected (2018) #4

Sep 5, 2018

UNEXPECTED #4 is a compelling read, as the heroes Firebrand and Neon try to unravel the mysteries of the new Nth Metal isotope. The deep dive into DC lore and lack of mainstream characters may make it difficult for readers new to comics, but established DC fans will love this series!

Thor (2018) #8

Dec 19, 2018

Thor is getting pushed to the limits leading up to the War of the Realms, especially in THOR #8. Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo send Thor through the crucible of Heven, and he emerges like a God Boss. Terrific action, great art, and nice supporting cast moments!

Wonder Woman (2016) #62

Jan 16, 2019

Writer G. Willow Wilson gives us a strong ending to "The Just War." Durovnia has peace, Ares has a quest, and Diana needs to find out what happened to Themyscira. Artist Xermanico draws one of the best-looking books I've seen this year.

Young Justice (2019) #1

Jan 10, 2019

Brian Michael Bendis revives the teenage team of the late '90s! The opening story is exciting and doesn't talk down to younger readers. There's a lot to like from this opening salvo!
