Boy do I enjoy this comic. It treads the line of being Alan Moorish but if Alan Moore was a funny guy doing funny comics. Its as if Miracleman or the parallel that the Watchman brought in critiquing the big two, were not as serious but was more or less funny. Thats not to say that this comic is a joke book. NO way. Its a good story and a compelling one at that. But it embraces humor and it makes i more

Fun Fun comic! I was never into wrestling, but this comic made me really buy into it and it made me forget that wrestling is all a show! The comic does a great job at looking behind the curtain and also making you suspend disbelief. I enjoy the Macbeth retelling, its cleverly done in a modern way, and the art is also very well done! Horror without being horror.

I’m a sucker for good nostalgia. I still get that from this. The multiverse story is interesting. But I wish it was more focused. That they A, had more fun with it by focusing on our core characters and B, focusing on the multiverse story more through our characters. I didn’t like the writers nod to a one world government. Thought that little bit of ideology was gross. I really enjoyed wonder more

Nice littler teaser. I dig the art. I dig the setup and the world. How raw everything is. I dig the realness in the writing. Actually sounds like people talking. No preaching here. Just solid story telling! I really enjoy this publisher and they are yet again making a solid comic. Good writing. Good art. What more can ya want?

Vampire action? Fitting for the past month of October. I appreciate how they constantly make spawn pretty OP, but they still have a way to humanize him by making him vulnerable at times. Been digging this and the art. The story doesn’t progress much, but it’s so much fun I don’t mind. And at 2.99? Gonna be a reader for a long time to come.

As B. and Diana's bond continues to grow, B. opens up about a recurring trauma from his past.

Will this new revelation jeopardize B. and Keever's latest mission? Or is it all part of a plan by Caldwell to trigger more memories?

I’ve been enjoying this comic, maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s the art, or seeing the characters written pretty well. But there’s a few things in this issue that turned me off. A few overt political comments that Superman made, really buying into a narrative and preaching it into the comic. I thought that sucked. Way to alienate half the audience who is potentially reading this series, pr more

It sounded like something Bendis would write, but I'm sure Tom thought he sounded highly intelligent, just as his fans love to think about themselves. Poor Supergirl, after the cringey tv show and the bad comics from the last years, now she has to go through this torture too.

Interesting first issue. If it’s going to be about guns tho I think the writer should show some more knowledge other than what was showed. The gun knowledge seemed lacking and feels like a missed opportunity to show the authenticity. Also, art was good but just Ok. Better than most. Didn’t like the slight political jab. Is she a refugee or illegal? Seemed kinda odd. What does it even matter? T more
