I have been absolutely loving Aaron's run on Thor so it pains me that this one did not leave me more excited as I started the issue. The majority of the issue focuses on Volstagg as the War Thor fighting the Mangog as it makes its way to Asgard for judgment of the gods. The previous issue had left the impression that the War Thor had already been brought down so this was a bit of a surprise. After more

Batman: Lost was yet another Metal tie-in that felt like filler more than anything. We learned nothing new except for how the Dark Multiverse is for Bruce. It's unfortunate, I was expecting something more essential considering Scott Snyder's involvement. But I was wrong, unfortunately. It still had some good art but otherwise I was pretty unenthused by it. I guess it still gave me what I wanted: a more

This issue wraps up the Oz Effect storyline and it's probably the best issue of the arc. Unfortunately, the majority of this arc has been lackluster and underwhelming. This comic has one really great moment that makes the issue for me. The rest of the issue serves more like a prelude into what is probably Doomsday Clock. Much like the Button, it isn't quite what we were expecting but, unlike the B more

I am a big fan of Louise Simonson so I read all the Power Pack stories. I had hoped that this issue would pick up where all the characters left off because I had been a fan of the Powers kids. It does give you a little bit with the revelation of where Alex Powers has been hiding. This is just a recap issue that tells the story of the Powers and some of their more memorable tales.
