I admit, I haven't read or watched every single Batman story in his near 80 year history, but to my knowledge this is one of those 'why didn't anyone think of this sooner??' stories. I'm a sucker for Dick Grayson as Batman and for Lee Weeks on Batman, so this issue already had a lot going for it, but it's the concept and King's writing that seals the deal. The quirkiness that you sometimes get fro more

The honeymoon's over for Bruce Wayne as Gotham City's most prominent citizen gets selected for jury duty in a chilling court case involving Mr. Freeze! Freeze claims the charges should be dismissed because Batman used excessive force; cue the outrage and media circus. While doing his civic duty, Wayne's forced to take a hard look at the Dark Knight...

I'm currently reading two series from Marvel, three from DC, and one from Boom - including two books written by two of my all-time favorite writers. I realized today, to my surprise, that I think Thanos is the best title I'm reading. It's entertaining, but more than that it's interesting. I'm not sure I've ever read a story with Thanos in it before (I know, I know), but the Infinity War trailer go more

This Thanos run has been an amazing surprise. This story is going to end up in every Marvel ranking from now on.

I enjoyed this issue.

BUT

For me the Dr. Strange/Falcon moments didn't fit and detracted from the story and the momentum. Also, the cover led me to expect a little more narrative progression than what we got, which was disappointing - I closed the book and felt like they'd accidentally used the cover for #704 on this issue.

The Mighty Thor #703

By: Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman
Released: Jan 17, 2018

THE DEATH OF THE MIGHTY THOR  Part 4
•  The Mangog has come to Asgardia. But as every god assembles to meet him, there is one noticeable absence.
•  Where is Thor? Where is Jane Foster?
•  Without their mightiest hero, who among the Asgardians can face the wrath of a billion murdered beings--and survive?

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first issue. Still visually stunning, but the story didn't work as well as in #1, in my opinion. The first issue seemed like a perversely plausible alternative narration of the classic Judas story and his experience. This issue didn't feel as compatible with the classic story, and that took away from the fascination of #1 for me. I am really interested to see more

I thought the conversation was dragging along a little too long, and then you see why. A shrewd commentary by King on how our childhoods affect our priorities as adults is a sneaky-important part of the narrative here, and Gerads' action-packed panels are the perfect juxtaposition for philosophizing and the seeming inanity of the conversation. Fantastic work yet again, King/Gerads.

Honestly, this is the first issue of Mister Miracle I've read that left me thinking, 'yeah, I get it'. The big themes of family, belief, and zany super-hero/sci-fi action/fun shine through. There's a couple pages of just fantastic use of the 9-panel grid. A couple of huge reveals make this perhaps the most significant issue of the series so far. I'm more excited about the second half of the series more

I had actually just decided to give up on this title, because the war of realms has just been dragging on for too long, and there was less story of late, just a bunch of punching, but I wanted to give it one more shot, for Jane's sake. I'm glad I did. The Mighty Thor #702 is my favorite issue in over a year. I feel like the story just moved out of neutral and into gear, and we're going somewhere. more

Lovely art, and a story that's asking just the right questions. Judas is not a two-dimensional backstabber, but a deeply conflicted many who wrestles with the meaning of Jesus. It doesn't try to cram an edgy, skeptical position down the reader's throat, but invites the reader to look at "The Greatest Story Ever Told" from a new perspective and ask their own questions. Really looking forward to see more
