Bat-ears99 reviewed Batman: Three Jokers #3 Oct 27, 2020
5.0

I was very curious how Johns would explain the existence of the three Jokers. I thought maybe these are just a three Jokers from different timelines like Golden Age, Pre-Crisis and Post-Crisis Jokers? I mean, we had Kara Danvers' Supergirl and Earth-Two Kara Zor-L... so it's still according to comic books rules. But apparently I was wrong. Now Joker is the title, the mantle that one person's givin more

Actually you’re the only reasonable one here that even tho I disagree, I see how you wouldn’t like it as much. You didn’t contradict yourself like the others did.

Copygram14 - Oct 27, 2020

This is a really good analysis of what worked and didn't work in the story for you. I enjoyed reading it, thanks. Love your point about the three Batmen. It could be something we see from Johns and Fabok in the next 5'ish years! I'm also curious to read Zero Year, now.

Another thought-provoking issue. This one goes down a darker path than the last one. I like how the creators seem to be playing it down the middle so far; the truth is a lie and the lies are all true.

Another terrific issue with solid writing and excellent, atmospheric art. This whole series has been of the highest quality right from the start. With the sad news of its cancellation still ringing in fans' ears, we can only hope next month's final issue goes out with a satisfying bang.

Copygram14 reviewed Shang-Chi #1 Sep 30, 2020
7.0

Lacks the pulpy style and feel of the original series from the 1970s, but enjoyable enough. I've liked a lot of writer Gene Luen Yang's comic book writing up 'til now, and he is the reason I picked this up. The art is okay, but it made me pine for the days of Paul Gulacy, Mike Zeck, and Gene Day; true masters of the Master of Kung Fu. A fun read overall.

Intriguing story for this first issue. I'm curious to see where Tynion takes it from here. The art by Martin Simmonds matches the theme of the book and it's glorious. Weird, edgy and scratchy, it reminds me of Bill Sienkiewicz's style.

I'm late to review this, I know, but just wanted to add my two cents to the conversation. Spurrier's run on Hellblazer started off well and has got better with each issue. This one is a classic! It gives us a little look into Noah's life, as well as reminding us that this book has always been a horror comic. Recommended!

This issue was for the ones who didn’t really liked Noah as a replacement for chas (I am one of them) but spurrier proves that Noah is an amazing and good hearted character in just one issue. This issue was poetic and had very good details about its character, even the ones we see only for a page. This issue is scary, poetic and at times funny. Its everything hellblazer wants to be and should be more

Probably my favorite issue of the series so far. It all works very well. It's a tight done-in-one. The writing, the art, the coloring, everything. It all works. There's not anything I can say bad about this one. This is a very pure 10/10.

I think that Simon spurrier has become one of my favorite writers in hellblazer, I mean the stuff with the dreaming was good too, but hellblazer is just on another level. I mean he can show us that he can make little ghost stories turn into poetic horror. I can easily say that with this issue, Spurrier made mermaids scary.

Funny at times, serious at others. Some nice nods to past characters again. Matias Bergara's art gives it a completely different feel to the first story-arc. It's not dark and gritty, but bright and colourful. He is brilliant at facial expressions, especially Constantine's. I'm intrigued by the mystery that's building. This title is the first book I read on release day. Can't wait for issue six!

This whole story arc was goddamn amazing. But despise the serious tones of the last story arc,this was actually very funny and particularly this issue builds up so many important things for the future,and I like to say again that Spurrier is a person that knows the character of John Constantine very well. And Tommy is a really fun character

I wasn't going to pick this up until I saw the two different art styles. I'm familiar with Mitch Gerads work but Evan Shaner is new to me. Both look great. I think the contrast between the two styles works well with the fractured storyline.
