Wow, really good. This is great setup for the upcoming miniseries and the next green lantern book in 2020, presumably by Morrison as well. There's a lot going on, and if you don't know what's happening, you should read the rest of this series first. I love Sharp's art, and it really shows here with the detail during the fights and facial expressions. This book and Shazam are probably my 2 favo more

X-Force (2019)

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We're not there...yet.

There is a lot going on here. How it pertains to the current story, if you're wondering (as some seem to be) is that in this ninth iteration of the cosmos, the One Below All has finally made a husk of the Hulk. That time fly has all the knowledge there is about the ninth cosmos and the World Breaker. It goes back in time to the current cosmos and is discovered by The Leader. We see the One Below A more

I appreciate that Hickman is laying out more of the pieces of his puzzle so quickly -- Arrakko and Apocalypse's connections to it -- but I spent this entire issue wondering, why isn't this situation a bigger deal? Remember when a mysterious island full of monsters almost ate two teams of X-Men? Doesn't this deserve a bigger response than three characters in sitcom mode herpy derping around clear more

Happy to see the Legion back, but...

The problem of too many character has been solved by giving everyone in the Legion the same speaking voice, making them a kind of hivemind that spouts exposition. Some money could be saved on word balloon tails because it doesn't really matter who said any given line.

Didn't really like anything about this issue. Damian is written overly sappy and out of character. The reunion was too short, and just reminded me of the decision to end super sons too much. I also didn't like the art, it looked a lot like manga/anime, which is fine for some people, but I'm not really a fan of it.

Probably an accurate preview of Bendis's upcoming Legion series -- a huge team of beloved iconic characters standing around as background props for whatever meandering narrative involving minor Bendis stand-in characters dominates the foreground. Occasionally the roster will change.

This isn’t a bad comic, but my problem is, that the character doesn’t act like Harley at all. Actually she is pretty unrecognizable & I would never think of her being Harley Quinn, if the comic wouldn’t constantly mention her name.
