Eh. A 10 for excellent art. Like I can't imagine a better artist for Captain America right now than Chris Samnee. He's doing Darwyn Cooke level of nostalgia art for Cap right now, and it's great! But story-wise, why are we in the future? I just started picking up Captain America because I wanted to see him fighting for justice, and now we've suddenly swerved to the near future for some altern more

Superheroes for Hire reviewed Sideways #1 Feb 20, 2018
8.5

I'm not fully caught up on Metal, so I can't speak to how this new series ties in. But as a new series of its own, "Sideways" hooked me with a likeable and goofy main character combined with awesome Kenneth Rocafort art. Rocafort's penciling art is some of my favorite in the business, and the changing set pieces in this first story provided plenty of opportunities for him to shine. I want to see more

Batgirl continues to be a great respite from the heavier Bat titles. Barbara and co. are faced with another threat to Burnside, and it's fun to see where this case takes her. I love the Chris Wildgoose art, especially his scenes of the Penguin sledding through town and the later main fight. This issue calls back to recent stories with good payoff, and I'm excited to read the next installment.
