Immortal Hulk #21

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett
Released: Jul 17, 2019

As the smoke from last issue clears, General Fortean makes a fateful decision. There can be no more half measure. No weapon is off the table. Force must be met with equal force. This is a war without rules... and SHADOW BASE is going to win.

By: Christos Gage, Mike Hawthorne

After saving the citizens of San Francisco from the worst of THE WAR OF THE REALMS, the Superior Spider-Man is the toast of the town! The key to the city! A ticker-tape parade! Adoration of the masses! That should make him feel good, right? Whatever he's feeling, he should treasure it, because someone very dangerous is coming for him...

Batman #75

By: Tom King, Tony Daniel

"City of Bane" begins! Bane's minions have moved into Gotham City, taken control and are ruling with an iron fist-including rounding up any villain who refuses to sign onto Bane's program-and Batman is nowhere to be found. At least not the Batman anyone knows. It's like someone has replaced the real Gotham City with a twisted funhouse-mirror versio...

But without his symbiote, getting even the basic necessities will become a challenge for Eddie Brock. Which means that keeping his son, Dylan, alive will be too!

Well, eh. It's odd. And a hard to review. Non-linear narrative is a new thing now for King and it works and doesn't at the same time. I feel like King doesn't get Bat-family so well, would explain why he doesn't have them so often in his books, except Nightwing.

But why non-linear narrative works: we get new revelations at the same time and we get to great artists at work.
