Age Of X-Man: The Marvelous X-Men #5

Jun 12, 2019

While the issue is definitely rushed to reach a certain endpoint, it is still an enjoyable experience with magnificent art.

Batman (2016) #72

Tom King's callback to earlier within his run is incredibly effective, and the entire art team is operating at a sublime level.

Criminal (2019) #5

Jun 4, 2019

Everything about this issue is masterfully crafted. From Brubaker's writing to Phillips' art and Phillips' colors, and even the letters, there isn't a single line out of place in this issue. It's difficult to achieve perfection, yet Brubaker and Phillips seem to consistently do it every issue of this series. Criminal is a must-read comic every issue, and this one continues the trend.

Gideon Falls #14

Jun 18, 2019

As always, Gideon Falls is a masterclass in visual storytelling. The plot has ramped up rapidly since the first arc, and Lemire is doing an excellent job giving answers that only serve to create further mysteries. Sorrentino is putting out the best work of his career, and improves with every issue. The layouts and artwork throughout are exquisite, and serve to enhance the story in an incredible way. Each scene's tone is defined by how Sorrentino lays out the page, and the entire issue is a structural masterpiece.

Bendis is starting to shrug off the lethargy of the past few issues while Reis is just absolutely incredible.

Transformers (2019) #7

Jun 11, 2019

The issue as a whole is an excellent way to allow the events of the previous issues to breathe and really get their importance and impact across. Ruckley's depiction of Bumblebee's grief and disillusionment is excellent, as it feels palpable throughout the issue. It also handles the loss of the point of view character very well. Rubble was the lens through which the reader could experience this new Cybertron, and his death could easily have resulted in a loss of perspective and focus. Instead, the book takes this loss in stride and uses it to flesh out the perspectives of all the other characters. This issue sets up a lot to look forward to, and does a great job depicting the apparent fall of Cybertron.

Young Justice (2019) #6

Jun 5, 2019

As a whole, this issue is a delightful conclusion to an incredibly unexpected adventure. The team truly feels like a team, and has a very clear reason to stick together after their opening adventure. Bendis, Timms, Eltaeb, and Abbott are all clicking in place, and the future of Young Justice looks incredibly bright -- although, maybe not for the team just yet.
