The art and style of this hooked me. I love every frame, every color, and the visual design is some of the best work I've seen. The characters are also hilarious, real, tinged with complex ideas, and identifiable. So why 3 stars? The story. The world Vaughan built is creative yet filled with tropes and ideas he already explored in Saga. The complete randomness of the word in Paper Girls would be a more

Wow. Outcast blew me away. Kirkman has honed his storytelling to balance existential crisis, humor, and horror with an ease I've never encountered. I highly recommend Outcast to every who likes horror and mystery.

Outcast continues to evolve into both a great family drama and a terrifying story. The second volume has great moments and some surprising twists. The emotion in Kirkman's dialogue writing and the general sense of dread from Azaceta's beautiful art carried this volume. The largest issue in this volume is lack of scenery. Most of the exposition is done with conversations in cars. A few times it was more

I was blinded by how much I loved Nailbiter. Vol 4 much like the previous TPs kept the story moving but also reinvented the structure and made the characters' world and more dangerous. Can wait for TP vol 5.

The setup is perfect. A new world and new heroes. Superman is black, Green Lantern is gay, Batman is paralyzed from the waist down, and Lois Lane's brain is in a android body.

What the heck just happened!? DC has created a new line of comics that will hopefully have as much fun, heart, and excellent storytelling as this first issue in Rebirth. The amount of deconstruction alone in this first issue blew me away. Much like what the Watchmen & TDK did to strip DC of optimism and love, DC Rebirth looks to take what it's learned from the nihilistic writing of Miller and Moor more
