Detective Kiwi reviewed Shazam! #10 Jan 25, 2020

I like the family being all together and getting along. Their foster parents are pretty amazing to adapt to all this. Talky Tawny was great in this too.

Shazam! #10

By: Geoff Johns, Dale Eaglesham
Released: Jan 22, 2020

The magical superhero adventure continues as the seventh member of the Shazam Family is finally chosen-and it will change Billy Batson and his brothers and sisters forever! But can this new family come together to stop the deadly all-new Monster Society? Plus, Mary's pet rabbit, Hoppy, makes a startling discovery...

Detective Kiwi reviewed Dial H For Hero #10 Jan 8, 2020
8.5

Excellent issue. Seeing all the combined heroes of Earth 32 was cool. My favourite was Dr Fatestorm, best name ever. The reveal was handled well, but Miguel's reaction to it was a bit tropey and not really realistic.

Dial H For Hero #10

By: Sam Humphries, Joe Quinones
Released: Jan 1, 2020

Miguel and Summer's search for the remaining H-Dials takes them into the Multiverse, where they encounter new worlds and new threats never seen before! But are they fast enough-and focused enough-to catch up to Mister Thunderbolt?

A good issue, but a little slow. The team is pretty much at their most desperate now, not worrying about what their actions are going to cost them. Plus, Circe ressurected a Dragon, so that's cool.

Justice League Dark #18

By: James Tynion IV, Alvaro Eduardo Martinez Bueno
Released: Jan 1, 2020

With Eclipso by her side, the new goddess of magic, Circe, is unstoppable! As she rewrites the rules of magic, the Justice League Dark must work to free themselves from Eclipso's grasp. Can they escape in time to save magic from the clutches of the Injustice League Dark once and for all? Or are they doomed to spend eternity trapped in the shadows?

Detective Kiwi reviewed Wonder Woman #83 Dec 23, 2019
3.0

I was glad to see Silencer popping up again, but I feel the writer didn't actually read her book. She's written very out of character, with different abilities and a much harsher, more heartless attitude. The Silencer from her own book and Wonder Woman would probably get on great, but here they get in each other's way for no real reason.

The issue is one long fight scene, and not a very more

Wonder Woman #83

By: Steve Orlando, Jesus Merino
Released: Dec 18, 2019

On the cusp of a new beginning, Wonder Woman must forge a fast alliance with a wild Amazon warrior from her past to halt The Cheetah's malicious massacre! But long brewing tension turns Diana's sister against her, giving the Cheetah her opening to place yet another God to the blade of her God Killer Sword. The kicker? The Cheetah thinks she's helpi...

It seemed like a strange spot in the story to be introducing a new character, but I quite liked Gamma Knife. The ship graveyard is pretty cool too, I hope we spend some more time in it. Cyborg's evil design is great.

Justice League: Odyssey #16

By: Dan Abnett, Will Conrad
Released: Dec 11, 2019

Jessica Cruz and her new Justice League Odyssey squad are hardly a team...just a bunch of misfits and old rivals thrown together by chance. Only one cause unites them: stopping the newly empowered, godlike Darkseid. But when they're outgunned and stranded on a hostile world, can they even begin to fight the ruthless forces of Sepulkore, or will an ...
