Events progress very quickly in No Justice, which means not everyone from the main cast has a chance to shine. While it was super fun to follow team Entropy and Mystery, as well as Green Arrow and Amanda Waller, teams Wonder and Wisdom didn't really capture my attention nearly as much.
I crave for more - more heavy story background, more unusual team-ups and dialogues between characters you n more

The teams arrive at Brainiac's home world to find it already in chaos. Only by splitting up and journeying to the four cosmic trees of Colu will they have any hope of saving the planet...but what's waiting for them will test the true mettle of their new alliances!

Great art is aided by a strong script and a ton of amazing character moments. Things are perking along very nicely indeed.

Where the last issue took a while to find its momentum, this one starts off with all cylinders firing and didn't slow down once!
I still love the way Starro is being written, but by the end of this issue the one thing I wanted the most was a buddy-cop-style miniseries with Lobo and Beast Boy.

Color is used in such a clever manner throughout this issue, and the texture effects make it look classic. The writers found a cunning way to get me interested in JL #1 in June, even if the end of issue reveal is a bit meh.

As you may have expected, everything we've een in last few issues got resolved - there was no real stakes or tension compared to Flashpoint, which in a similar matter introduced an alternate, dystopian timeline, but even after Barry returned to his time, things were different. On the other hand, King pulled off some real dramatic moments and perfectly captured Booster's goofy personality, with rea more

Can you elaborate Jim?

DC Stuff - May 17, 2018

Tom King announced his Sanctuary story where heroes and villains go for treatment for PTSD and mental issues. Tom King seems to have used the Everyone Loves Ivy and this story to set up Ivy and Booster to be part of it.

King found a way to make Booster amusing instead of annoying. Daniel's figures are so narrow that I can't figure out if it is genuinely weird or if comic-huge is just too normative. A totally serviceable issue, but it is below the bar set for two years of this Batman run.

Every character is well characterized, fun to read and the teams are sure to bring interesting dynamics. Manapul's art is also very good, adjusting so well to the cosmic scale of the tale.

So DC has basically been doing everything they can to appeal to disaffected Marvel fans. New Age of DC Heroes are all DC takes on Marvel characters and themes. The threats you see in this comic are basically Dark Celestials. DC and Snyder do a really good job of continuing an ongoing story that began in Dark Knights metal which also a Marvel concept.

This was a lot of fun! Firstly, Manapul deserves all the praise in the world for his pencils, but HiFi's the colors are exactly what a team/cosmic book in 2018 should be: vibrant, dynamic, and lots and lots of contrast and gradients. What could veer into being an overly convoluted plot is surprisingly clean and believable. Color me interested in this weekly series, and the JL #1 to come.

Preview for Batman's wedding was great. Both in art and in writing. Joker waiting for his invitation was creepy and chilling, especially when he told his joke about a letter without a stamp. He is going to mess up that wedding or maybe he will officiate it.

Tony Patrick is definitely worth following going forward - his dialogue represents a voice not always seen in comics.
