It's hard to understand how a comic can be so consistently good, flawless even, for this many consecutive issues. After reading the first, then the second, the the third, I told myself it would lose steam at some point, but it's quite the opposite that actually happens. This series gets better month after month, changing dynamics each time. This time, the romance between Scott and Big Barda is so more

Do you remember that Britney Spears fan, the one from the "leave Britney alone" video? That's how I felt reading this. Geoff Johns knows he can't win over readers like me, but is like he didn't even tried. The art is kinda good, but... But... I'm sad. I'm so sad...

Watchmen doesn't need a follow-up. It doesn't need to be connected to the main DC universe, nor to have its metaphors explained to the reader, nor to have forced jokes and continuous (and very distracting) references to the original comic-book.

They shouldn't have tried to replicate the structure of the original, because it just doesn't work. Don't get me wrong, Geoff Johns is a very go more

Superheroes for Hire - Nov 23, 2017

While the structure and ticks of Watchmen are imitated at the beginning of the issue, it transitions to something different by the end. The jump to the DC Universe is going to be like a Wizard of Oz moment, where the gloomy Watchmen universe gets exposed to the normal superhero antics of the DC Universe.

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
