This book is worth its price on Art alone but, Going in this was known. Francis Manapul ups his game and goes cosmic and Hifi dazzles us with beautiful colors in an an awe inspiring tour de force of artistic splendor. So yeah I could go on, but my point has been made this is a pretty book. The story is always contingent on ones tastes so mileage may vary, however I loved the story I enjoyed the tw more

Really enjoyed this Second installment of Sideways it’s just fun and I find that Justin Jordan really makes the dialogue work he captures the youthful voice one looks for in these kind of books. and pairing him with Didio was a wise choice Since I don’t believe didio on his own could have managed to make this books as enjoyable.

There's one thing that makes Tom King so, so different from other comic book writers - he knows how to write about normal, ordinary daily life. He doesn't try to create unnecessary soap opera drama, he doesn't give too much attention and relevance to otherwise irrelevant situations, and finally, he doesn't try to add faux depth where's none. I was often praising his portrayal of Selina, and her re more

Hard to say, Ivy's plan may be somewhat similar to what happened in Justice League vs. Suicide Squad mini run, where she wants to fix the world by taking control over it, but it backfires. Absolute power corrupts absolutely after all. For now, I'd say she wants to heal the planet, but I really have no guess where it'll lead.

Jim - Mar 18, 2018

that makes sense. I hope we do get more along the lines of Ivy doing this for those reasons and Batman realizes that in the end, that is something everybody should strive to do. Though, if it ends up as simple as Ivy feels bad about killing people in the Jokes and Riddles and the Green and the Planet healing are pushed aside, we may start arguing again! Just kidding, I have just been mad at Tom king for getting a lot of setup that doesn't get explained in the end.

if ivy controls everyone, but can't use their powers proper, how does she use magic, science and surgery to bring Bruce back from the dead? That seems more difficult than making Flashes run fast.

I enjoyed MILK WARS Part 1 quite a bit. Steve Orlando has a certain chemistry with Aco that I haven't, yet, seen in any of his other work (unfortunately) . I can't help but think that I would have enjoyed this issue MUCH more if the core DOOM PATROL series was up to date.

Milk Wars has one detraction against it in my eyes and that’s the fact that it spoils some of the central narrative of the Doom Patrol comic currently being published under the Young Animal line by Gerard Way and Nick Derington.

Dan Abnett knows how to play the long game and Ricardo Federici delivers some fine work in his issue of Aquaman. As the conflicts that have been bubbling come to a head cards are they played and choices made. Come February Aquaman will be in an interesting place.

The amount of material, cameos, story elements and characters the reader has to ingest is just insane at this point! It is an hard-to-follow event, but that's not the point.
