Simargl reviewed The Nice House on the Lake #9 May 31, 2022
8.0

Tynion & Bueno continue to deliver a good story, although not a lot of things happened in this issue. I wish we would've got more of Arturo's perspective in this one. He wasn't fleshed out very well previously beyond just being Sam's partner. Although Nora & Walter's conversation was the highlight of this issue.

All Arturo wants is for his partner, Sam, to be happy-so why isn't he? What is scratching at the edge of Sam's memories that keeps him restless and unsatisfied? As a journalist, nothing can keep Sam from the truth-no matter what that truth could cost the man he loves...

Simargl reviewed Hardware: Season One #6 May 31, 2022
5.5

Hardware was the weakest out of all the new Milestone books. I enjoyed all the others to a certain degree but this one wasn't it. The story quickly lost steam and repeated the same bits all over again. Hardware as a character was very bland & Alva's personality was only "I loved you like a son" phrase and that's pretty much it. The art by Cowan & Sienkiewicz looks fine but doesn't fit the action.

Simargl reviewed Action Comics Annual: 2022 May 31, 2022
8.0

Wasn't a big fan of comsic god lore in the previous issue, so this story was a significant improvement IMHO. Spurrier & PKJ deliver a more grounded take on Mongul & Superman. The stories are a bit cliched but both authors are very good witers so they can deliver simplistic stories in an entertaining manner.

I like how Brisson writes Ghost-maker & Clownhunter, but all the other Batmen are one note bummers. Hope Brisson will give them more stuff to do in Batman Inc. series. Story wasn't worthy of 40 pages, the amount of exposition really drags it down. Not a fan of Timms art but it's not terrible, just bland. Grey Wolf seems like a fun new Batman, so I'm still mostly hyped about Batman Inc. but this an more

Kind of a pointless preview.

Nothing of substance was revealed, it could have been easily skipped or shown in tie-ins or smth. DC really wants to make Nightwing/Jon duo a thing, Pariah is still the most boring villain after the GREAT DARKNESS, Nocturna's story was out of nowhere, like she hasn't interacted with Batman since Detective Comics during NEW52.

Shadow War is such a frustrating event. Like most of Williamson event writing, it feels half-baked.

I like the idea of Ras dying, I like the idea of Deathstroke getting a second chance at being a father, it's a nice change of status quo. Hell, the idea of Geo-force being the real killer is very cool considering what has been done to Terra and Markovia (lol, I forgot that it even happen more
