Supes' soups reviewed Aquaman #32 Jan 17, 2018

This was a good read, Aquaman has been really good ever since he was dethroned and the art whether it's Sejic or Federici is top notch stuff with a grungy games of thronesy feel to it. I had a discussion about this issue with my local comic shop and we agreed the message buried in this issue is actually commentary on today's politics. Questioning Rath's mental stability and his growing obsession w more

Very subpar, mediocre, lackluster, and uninspired first issue for all the hype and delays. The art is only decent (not Daniel's best work by a long shot). I realize it's only a first issue but it was such a quick five minute read with only chaotic action and barely any plot and character introduction, I couldn't even tell what the first name of the title character was until I read a blurb online. more

Not to be overly critical but can't they make already cool and more established black characters better? Cyborg just ended with issue #20 and Luke Fox is to me, more interesting as Batwing than Duke as the signal. I actually liked Duke Thomas in the short run of I am Robin that led into Robin Wars. But this Signal character just seems so bland. I get this is Scott Snyder's brainchild but honestly more

This is a very interesting take on the Batman mythos from an elseworld perspective. We're at halftime and it's been a good read so far. Surprisingly, the reason this series is good is not because of Batman but rather Joker/Napier. The character development on Batman so far is that he's super grumpy over a sick Alfred...

For some reason, perhaps because of the freedom that comes with writing more obscure characters, Tom King makes Mister Miracle work.

This title is still struggling to find its footing and after eight and half months, it's worrisome. This arc pushes some loose threads along that we got from Rebirth one-shot but it doesn't resolve anything besides passing the Atom's mantle to Choi.
