Batman Beyond (2016) #11

Aug 27, 2017

Bernard Chang and Marcelo Mailo are still an extremely capable art team, giving the book its own defined tone and pallet, mixing in the familiar reds and blacks so strong with the themes of Beyond with a thickly lined style that gives it its own identity.

Batman: The Red Death #1

Sep 20, 2017

Everything related to Metal has been absolutely stellar, and this book is the very best next thing to the main event itself.

Hi-Fi Fight Club #1

Sep 5, 2017

Boom can be stereotyped as having a certain house style for its teen girl adventure books, and if it did, this book would stand out while still holding a few of the classic tropes. Every character has a particular style of clothing and body language, going into a delightfully detailed style that still has the more cartoony and simplistic expressions for the really light music.

Justice League (2016) #14

Sep 15, 2017

Previously on JLA. After adventures in the Microverse verging on multi-dimensional destruction and living planets taking their apparant revenge out on the denizens, our group finally finds Ray Palmer. Or do they? They don't. This time? Maybe. Probably.

Justice League of America (2017) #13

Sep 1, 2017

The purpose of this arc is just to figure out what's happening with Ray Palmer, from how I'm seeing it, and it mostly does that well. The Ray usually helps provide the emotional core to this team, but with getting interrupted by another dude to punch, him and Canary didn't get to do a whole lot this time. There's nothing wrong with this arc, it just feels like it's still finding its way to the next big point of the run.

Nightwing: The New Order #1

Aug 23, 2017

It's a difficult time to write a story about an empowered regime taking down a particular group, but especially with the scene of Dick and Alfred not remotely being on the same level with what Dick had to do, it's an interesting start to lead through the rest of whatever we get in this what-if.

Swordquest #3

Sep 17, 2017

This book continues to be one of the most artfully ambitious and fulfilling projects that Sims and Bowers have done to date, including the absolutely jam-packed 9 panel grids painting the pages of the book by Ghost Writer X.
