Batman: Damned #2

By: Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo
Released: Dec 12, 2018

As Batman's descent into the madness of Gotham City's decadent underbelly continues, he must try to exorcise some of his demons...and who better to help than the Demon, Etrigan himself. And where there's demons, there's also a Deadman, a Spectre, an Enchantress and a host of other supernatural friends and foes-it's a veritable Grand Guignol! &...

SONOFBATMANN reviewed Shazam! #1 Dec 5, 2018
8.5

Nothing more that I could want from a Shazam series than was presented in this issue. I cannot express how happy I am that Geoff is back, and I hope that he stays for good on this series (and doesn't leave after 5 issues).

Enjoyed the back-up, but I really hope they keep Billy and Mary as twins. Best scenes were the return of >>>[SPOILER]<<< CC Batson and the teasing of Hoppy.

Shazam! #1

They should call this series The Legion of Doom, because these last 13 issues seem more focused on the villains than the heroes. Not the biggest fan of Guillem March's art, but it sufficed. Joker's fear and hatred of the BWL adds a new aspect to his character, but his plan to fuck with Luthor seemed kinda pointless.

Return of Brainiac from No Justice and Prof Ivo was pretty cool too.

Justice League #13

By: James Tynion IV, Guillem March
Released: Dec 5, 2018

It's on-the Totality will totally total the Multiverse! What could possibly go wrong when the Legion of Doom gets their hands on it? Plus, what is the connection between JUSTICE LEAGUE and the new BATMAN WHO LAUGHS miniseries from Scott Snyder and Jock?

I can tell this is gonna be a slow burn. Really enjoying the detective/procedural themes Morrison has inserted in the story. Sharp's art is absolutely phenomenal.

The best moments include the return of Evil Star, new Lanterns, and a classic Justice League villain's (Kanjar Ro) race coming in to cause trouble for Hal.

Nice book, but nothing mind-blowing.

Green Lantern #2

Another amazing installment in an amazing series. Doomsday Clock has been a wonderful ride, and now that we are entering what I call "Act III" of the book, the loose ends begin coming together.

John's Superman is unparalleled, with a balance of compassion and strength that can only be attributed to the Man of Steel.

In the end, the only thing preventing this book from being a more

This book might be the worst thing that DC has ever put out. Dan DiDio and Tom King have successfully RUINED DC Comics. The only thing that makes this book readable is Clay Mann's art. I am astounded that people are enjoying this book. Every day I pray that DiDio leaves DC and that they give King some writing lessons. What an abomination.

I didn't mind this issue, but 4 and 5 only needed to be one issue. All that happens is more fighting between Rogol and Supes, while Zod shows up to help his brethren out. Last issue was also just alot of fighting, and little plot progression.

A Post-Kamandi future earth where they have gladiator space matches with aliens? Count me in! Though he isn't that popular, I actually enjoy Steve Orlando's work quite a bit (The Unexpected, JLA). I like his love for obscure DC lore and Morrisonian concepts present in his books, and I hope we continue to get more in the issues to come.

Don’t understand the praises here. This run started good, but became dull pretty fast.

Despite not enjoying Bendis' Man of Steel miniseries, this and Action Comics are a pleasant surprise. I'm slowly warming up to Brian's dialogue and characterization of Clark, but I enjoyed this nonetheless. The reintroduction of classic Supes villain Jax-Ur and the incorporation of sidelined characters like Blue Beetle, Will Magnus, the Atoms, and Adam Strange are just icing on an already deliciou more

A very "meh" issue. All that happened was the revelation behind the Guardian's murder and the fact that Simon got played like a fool. Nothing wrong with the art. A little grainy at some points, but I really didn't have a problem with it. Also, Kelex gets destroyed again for the millionth time.

Yeah, I can't say I enjoyed this issue very much. My main problem stems from King's characterization of Nightwing, whose dialogue comes off as juvenile. As for the art, meh. Putting aside the fact that Matt Wagner has worked on great books (Trinity, Batman and the Monster-Men), as well as the controversy surrounding his son as colorist on the issue, I didn't enjoy the art.

This issue was fantastic. Snyder's run has hit every mark for me and I can't praise it enough. Snyder has poured his passion for the DC mythos into this series, and it only makes it better.
