Roundhouse is truly one of my favorite characters of this book! Great art and we get to see the team vent about their issues with each other. Highly recommend it to be, although wasn’t fan of that editors note in the beginning.

Teen Titans #30

By: Adam Glass, Bernard Chang
Released: May 15, 2019

"The Terminus Agenda" epilogue! Every decision has consequences, and after the shocking events of DEATHSTROKE #43 (trust us, you don't want to miss it!) it's time for Damian and the rest of the Teen Titans to take stock of what they've done. But the team barely has time to process before a new threat emerges in the form of Crush's absentee father.....

Superman makes a bold choice that will forever change ...

Released: May 15, 2019

This is it! In this issue, all secrets are revealed! Who is Naomi? Where did she come from? What can she do? And what does it mean for the rest of the DC Universe? It's the one you've been waiting for from Bendis, Walker and Campbell.

Nice to get some background on one of the Nightwing's. Art looks alright. The reasoning felt why she is mad, I get it is out of anger but like really? Seems a bit of a stretch for me. I will admit, enjoying seeing Bea more and more.

Detective Alphonse Sapienza may be a natural-born leader, forged through his many years with the GCPD, but does that give him what it takes to lead the Night-wings when their lives are endangered as never before?

All I’m thinking as I am reading this is what the fuck is Tom King doing. Enjoyed the artwork. I am quite curious to where the punch will lead to with the Bat-Family. I know I am not going to like it especially how my favorite scene in Rebirth Detective Comics was when Bruce and Tim got reunited.

Batman #71

By: Tom King, Mikel Janin
Released: May 15, 2019

"The Fall and the Fallen" continues! Will it be father and son working together, or tearing each other apart? When it comes to the Waynes, expect a little of both. In the quest to get Bruce Wayne to hang up the cape and cowl, Thomas Wayne is going to have to use a little tough love. Only, not all the muscle behind it will be his own.

Artwork was eh pretty good on some panels except for Superman’s face, that was awful. With Rogal out of the phantom zone, the axe should be going back to him.

Supergirl #30

If you want to do something right, do it yourself-the crystalline Lord Gandelo is tired of sending others to kill Supergirl and has arrived to destroy the Girl of Steel herself! It's an all-out fight as crystal battles steel-and Supergirl must choose between avenging Krypton and sparing a wicked life.

The purpose of a villain in a superhero story is to challenge the hero, make them embrace their best self, grow and learn. None of that can happen when a random sleection of baddies is being taken down one by one by a hero so overpowered he puts Arya Stark to shame.

exactly! we've been wondering how Thomas is there or why he'd be helping Bane against his own son. King probably just threw that in there as a mystery box, and now has no idea what to do with it. the whole scenario is just dumb beyond dumb.
