There's adventure on every page, all of which is rendered beautifully by Mora and Bonvillain. This might be my favorite series from DC at the moment. Enthusiastically recommended! Read Full Review

    It seems like Waid is being set up as the new architect of the DCU, and based on his two titles right now, DC couldn't make a better choice. Read Full Review
