Valiant Son reviewed American Carnage #9 Jul 31, 2019
8.0

This series clearly wasn't intended to be wrapped up in nine issues, and it shows. Bryan Hill has done the best that he could to produce a solid conclusion, but there are weaknesses that result from events outside of his control. Nonetheless, the issue is good.

The biggest tragedy in this issue is that we have been robbed of an excellent series due to the failure and collapse of the Ver more

He didn't edit all the new Vertigo titles, nor does he edit all Black Label titles. The person who IS in charge of both of those imprints is Mark Doyle, as I've said, so no, you don't have a point.

Valiant Son - Aug 4, 2019

Yes, I do have a point. He was the editor of several Vertigo titles that harmed the reputation of the imprint. I never said that he edited every Black Label (or Vertigo) title. Learn how to read.

Nihilist reviewed Young Justice #7 Jul 10, 2019

This is what the series should have been from the very beginning. There's genuine comedy, there's a bit of heart, and finally characters start to interact with each other - so far not much, but it's a start, and I welcome it. The overall tone of the comic is way lighter than its predecessors - it has youthful energy, plenty of it in fact, so much so I think that Impulse not only has ADHD, but also more
