I really like the ideas that this book is presenting. Using the Titans and the current Teen Titans teams to train up the next generation of heroes is a really good idea. It also gives some purpose to characters like Starfire, Donna Troy, Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. It's nice to see that DC and the creative team have allowed Beast Boy and Raven to be of similar age to their fellow Titans, rather more

Future State was not great for Batman, as the books were hit or miss. The buildup to what seems like the inevitable future, however, is much more interesting. It really seems like DC is going to stick with the idea of Bruce not being a billionaire and having to deal with those challenges as a result. Seeing Bruce actually interact with some of the wealthy elite in Gotham is interesting, and the my more

Green_Lantern_1992 reviewed Action Comics #1029 Mar 25, 2021

So far, I'm not blown away by the story that Philip K. Johnson has crafted for Superman. It seems like they really want to push Jon into that role, but the character isn't ready for that yet. The story overall is really slow, and the artwork isn't fantastic. There are some interesting ideas here, but the execution is going to need to improve as the months go on. I'm also not a fan of Superman and more

I don't really know what I was expecting with Superman: Red and Blue, but an anthology book wasn't it. I was very pleasantly surprised by every story in the book, ranging from emotional to whacky, serious to silly. It's a good, fun, and quick read that allows several writers and artists to capture the voice and character of Superman throughout his life. I really love how each artist uses the red/b more

Green_Lantern_1992 reviewed Justice League #59 Mar 16, 2021

I was pleasantly surprised by Brian Michael Bendis' first Justice League issue. I read his entire Superman/Action Comics runs, and found his writing style grating, his stories bland and boring, and some decisions he made were nonsensical and unnecessary. So I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. It's not great, mind you, but it's pretty good. Bendis has introduced some good ideas more
