WhiteLantern reviewed Batman #5 Aug 18, 2016
9.0

If anyone was going to be Scott Snyder's successor on Batman, Tom King had to be on a lot of people's short lists. The former CIA operative turned comic book writer has a handle of good comic book action, as well as an intriguing story. This issue marks the conclusion of the first story arc, and it ends on such a great note. The idea of Gotham's powers is brilliant, and the heights he goes to in h more

By: Tom King, David Finch
Released: Aug 17, 2016

This series is off to a slow start. Nothing about it really stands out as wrong, but nothing stands out as right, or as great, or as memorable. Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress (I'm less familiar with the last one) all read like themselves, they don't seem poorly characterized. The art is pretty good, and the villain is... well, present. I think that's actually the main problem with this issue more

WhiteLantern reviewed Aquaman #5 Aug 18, 2016
8.0

Dan Abnett's story of Atlantis being seen as an enemy nation to the US is an interesting one, and it's fairly well executed. Aquaman sounds like a hero, an elder statesman, a man trying to bring both of his worlds together. His struggle works on every level - there's the high octane superhero action, the intriguing political dialogue, and his commitment to a peaceful resolution to the issue. The U more

Aquaman #5

By: Dan Abnett, Philippe Briones
Released: Aug 17, 2016

"The Drowning" part five. Unjustly branded a murderer and a fugitive, Aquaman's forced to defend himself against the might of America's military. Meanwhile, Black Manta and the deadly underwater crime cabal known as N.E.M.O. advance their plan for revenge on Aquaman.
