Writing and presentation-wise, The Hellblazer #1 exceeds with flying colors. In terms of action and tense story-telling, not so much. But It still is a fun read, with the banter between long-time friends Constantine and Swamp Thing being a highlight.

"The Poison Truth" part one! London may have recovered from Constantine's return, but he hasn't. Mercury hasn't forgiven him, but she won't leave him alone, and Swamp Thing is calling in a favor. And all the while, bigger things are brewing...

The Hellblazer: Rebirth offers me much of the same of what i've come to expect from our beloved cynical Constantine. The thing is it doesn't do much else than that, just giving us a single-issue story that is completely wrapped up at the end.

Hellblazer: Rebirth #1

John Constantine's lost weekend in New York City was fun, but London's where his heart is-only a pissed-off demon and a curse on his soul stand in his way. Even Constantine's questionable ethics are pushed to the limit when he puts eight million souls on the line to get what he wants....

Deathstroke #1 picks up exactly where Deathstroke: rebirth #1 left off, and offers even MORE of what I love of the character, his stories, and action scenes. The only bad part I can really say about this issue is one extremely out of place and juvenile scene of Slade and his wife fighting in underwear. It's just a *bit* cringe worthy.

Released: Aug 24, 2016

"The Professional" part one! Deathstroke's latest contract takes him to a war-torn African country, where he finds himself caught in the middle of a disintegrating alliance between a ruthless dictator and a deadly super-villain. With an entire nation at stake, Slade Wilson must choose between fulfilling his contract and saving an old friend.

I have always enjoyed the character of Deathstroke the Terminator, and the character arcs he goes through. Sometimes portrayed as the worst of the worst, and sometimes portrayed as a man with a heart. We definitely see some of that bad side (With how he treats his children in the opening flashback) and some of the good side (with how he double crosses his corrupt contractor to save some of his men more

Deathstroke: Rebirth #1

A thousand enemies, a thousand kills-Deathstroke is the world's greatest assassin. Stalked by an unseen foe, Slade Wilson is confronted by his own troubled past and challenged to reinvent himself before he loses everything and everyone in his life. Can Deathstroke be redeemed? Or will his addiction to violence destroy him?

Suicide Squad rebirth starts off on an extremely strong note, with Amanda Waller basically bullying the president himself into continuing the Task Force X project. However, things fall apart shortly after that. The banter between the squad members was awkward at times, especially with Captain Boomerang. The art also somewhat loses some of it's luster, and the disposable plot doesn't help anything. more

Superman #2 is certainly far more enjoyable and comprehensible than #1. The action was definitely more apparent and interesting than the previous issue as well. The art is even more gorgeous as well. However this issue falters in one section on my opinion. What was the deal with the whole "Kryptonian DNA detected" thing? I really did not understand that at all, or did I really understand the endin more

I had made the mistake of Reading this issue without reading the "issue 0" Superman: Rebirth #1. So that definitely has some effect on why i'm giving it this score. I did not really understand what was going on in some scenes, especially the opening scene in the graveyard. Nor did I understand the current state of Clark and his family. But putting that aside, I still did get some enjoyment out of more

We finally get to see a heroic superman in action, this issue is better than anything that I have seen of new52 superman. I only wish Jon was punished because he killed his pet, because i found it wierd how they were proud of him.
