The art is fantastic, but the writing is frustratingly uneven. Jinny's backstory is effective, but the finale of the fight scene between Young Justice and their evil counterparts is entirely uninteresting and never makes clear what the point of the whole lost in the multiverse story. And as everyone else has already pointed out, Tim Drake's new costume isn't good and using your surname as your sup more

A fantastic issue after a stretch where my interest was waning a bit, descending back down from the pure monster horror of the last several issues back into real world questions, having Bruce make a compelling argument for humanity's destruction while Amadeus Cho points out the problems of middle class white guys mistaking their frustration for revolution. I'm really fascinated to see where this i more

I've been mostly disappointed with Ahmed's Ms. Marvel, but not this month. Dramatic, exciting, and deeply felt with a sharp eye for character, this is much more on the level of what I'd hoped from this run. And where did Minkyu Jung get so good all of a sudden? That panel of Kamala jumping out of the hole in the building is a classic. An unexpectedly great comic

A solid issue of X-Force, but it just feels like the newest X-Force comic and nothing more. Whereas everything else the X books have put out under HOXPOXDOX has felt new and exciting, this is really just a standard X-Force comic that happens to be set in Krakoa. Shortcomings in ambition aside, it's a good fast-paced action comic with beautiful art, and my reservations are probably at least partial more

X-Force #1

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We're not there...yet.

My least favorite issue of my least favorite storyline of a run that at its best was my favorite Batman run of the 2010's. Batman and Catwoman beat Bane with an uncharacteristically cheap trick which King insists on having mostly happen off panel while the character explain to the audience what the comic doesn't show. And the big showdown itself is static, anticlimactic, and too easy, not in any w more

What a fantastic comic! Zdarsky continues to be one of the best writers in the business, making a story about why Wilson Fisk will never be anything but the Kingpin and Matt Murdock can only be Daredevil into a viscerally compelling character study instead of merely another story in which the characters try things other than being a super hero and super villain for a while before the status quo in more

Well, here's a solid contender for disappointment of the week. What made the original New Mutants and Generation X comics fun was their varied and complex casts of characters, but here practically everyone feels like a generic voice whose speech bubbles are randomly attached to pictures of characters you loved as a kid. The one exception is Sunspot, who the writers clearly do have fun writing. But more

Goodness I'm glad to be back in the 31st century, and this was worth picking up for the plastic flight ring alone. But Bendis tries to do a little too much and it gets muddled in the execution. That's a problem many writers have with the Legion with its enormous cast of characters, each of which comes with an entire planet's worth of culture to explain, but it's harder to justify here since he had more

Rucka & Perkins's Lois Lane continues to be fun, but this issue is very middle chapter-y; not much happens and there's a sense that they're stalling for time here to fill a 12-issue remit when they maybe only had 10 or 11 issues of story to tell.

Steve Orlando's first go at Wonder Woman ahead of his upcoming run on the monthly is at best a mixed bag. I love his conception of Diana as peacemaker first and foremost, shaking off the final sword-waving dregs of the new52 era, but the story he tells with that is a terribly generic story that only serves to introduce a character about which there's not much to say, and the final twist with her i more
