Possibly the best comic DC is putting out right now, now that Hellblazer is over.

Strange Adventures #8

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: Jan 27, 2021

The battle against the Pykkts continues! The Justice League-including Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Batman, the Flash, Superman, and Wonder Woman-has scattered across the Earth, pushing back the marauders wherever they appear. Even Mr. Terrific takes a break from investigating Adam Strange’s alleged war crimes to land a punch or two in their stupid...

"Supes." That's what Gene Luen Yang thinks The Batman calls Superman.
That is how much Mr. Yang understands the Batman character. "Supes."
How many times in past 80+ years has The Batman called Superman "Supes"? That's right.

The Magistrate regime just happens to have a facility to develop artificial Kryptonite, with all types of Kryptonite weapons on hand. And schizophrenic more

Future State: Batman/Superman #2

By: Gene Luen Yang, Ben Oliver
Released: Feb 24, 2021

Superman has fallen deep into the Magistrate’s Kryptonite caverns, and now he’s at the mercy of a gruesomely transformed Professor Pyg! So what do animalistic body modification and caves of Kryptonite have to do with the Magistrate’s growing fascist state in Gotham City? That’s what Batman needs to find out as the race against time to save ...

Batman battles Ghost-Maker in the no-holds-barred, bloody conclusion of this epic tale…winner take Gotham City! And the outcome is not what you’re expecting! The future of Gotham City and the fate of Clownhunter hang in the balance!

Just bad. None of it makes any sense. Clownhunter is just a poor retread of Damian. Ghost Maker goes from being violently against the very concept of Batman to being his partner in 5 pages. Made worse by the “I don’t have a butler anymore” line

This issue is just dumb. Nothing happens. Bao, I mean Clownhunter tries to kill Harley but can't because of the power of love. Harley says sure I killed a lot of people and destroyed your life, but oppsie and I absolutely deserve to walk free because I'm a victim, and you're a victim and those dozens of people you brutally killed using psychotic methods totally had it coming.

Oh dear I have laughed so much at your witty criticism, I'll be honest, since DC has been making garbage for a while I reached my limit, now I usually read Marvel, I just stop by to see the criticism to know if it is worth wasting time reading or not a comic. Thanks for not overvaluing the series in such a nice way and with this I get an idea that it is a number to kill someone from boredom, thank you very much I'll skip it for today.

Quinn - Dec 16, 2020

Thanks. I always feel humor can sell my point than serious talk. But man this run bothers me. And I know that all these “great” changes will not last. That’s something, but it all amounts to nothing. So frustrating. Gla you liked my review.

This whole thing feels unearned and inconsequential with its over-the-top story. It's a discombobulated mess! It leaves one both underwhelmed and unfulfilled by the end :/ Honestly, is Snyder 5 years old? Because the script certainly feels that way. Juvenile and callow. It's a rushed and crammed filled event with no clear goal except to kill off DC, I think. If you're into that kind of thing, grea more

Dark Nights: Death Metal #6

Meanwhile, the Robin King lurks nearby, his army of Groblins in wait. The dogs of war are loose and no one is safe.

This does the whole radicalization thing that Punchline tried to do, but better. But I guess Punchline was going for a newer, internet addled sort of indoctrination, versus this more classic form of it. But still this did it better. Again, I try not to think of this comic as something related to Watchmen, and I find myself enjoying it. I feel like that's how this book should be read.

Yeah, this is really not good. It's something but it's not Hellblazer. I don't enjoy what I'm reading. If DC wants to do these miniseries, just get Spurrier to write them.

Spurrier's take on Constantine continues to be legendary. This whole issue drips with dark political relevance without feeling on the nose or preachy. The page showing John's reaction to what he finds below Parliament is absolutely beautiful, too. This run stands with ease next to Delano's old Vertigo stuff, and is, in my opinion, head and shoulders above Ennis'.

Another terrific issue with solid writing and excellent, atmospheric art. This whole series has been of the highest quality right from the start. With the sad news of its cancellation still ringing in fans' ears, we can only hope next month's final issue goes out with a satisfying bang.

Once again we see nothing happen. We are told that Catwoman has to deal with her enemies, that Lucius has Bruce's money and Bruce will have it back if he wants, but eyes will be on him so he can't spend it.

Bruce never asks for the money back and says he'll move into a brownstone in the city that he didn't even know he owned. We're told that the city changed and all the Joker goons just more

How did the Joker’s rampage affected the citizens of the city? And why does Cole Cash-a.k.a.-Grifter, now work for Lucius Fox?!

Tom Taylor makes a decent attempt at John Constantine but it’s just not authentic. The art, dialogue and general feel of this book is very much reminiscent of the dark days of New 52. It’s genuinely hard to understand how the recent Si Spurrier series wasn’t renewed or which John Constantine DC actually want

there's nothing good about this issue, other than a couple jabs at rich people here and there. the art is terrible, the characterization of John feels (unfortunately) more New 52 than Vertigo, with a flaming hand at one point, and glowing sigils on his walls, Lucifer is bastardized once more, disrespecting the fantastic character masterfully written by Neil Gaiman and Mike Carey, and worst of all, more
