  • Batman #12 Review
    on Dec 12, 2016 in Batman DC Comics Catwoman
    “I Am Suicide” is not turning out to be the Batman and Suicide Squad crossover story that I originally thought it would be. While this story has elements of Suicide Squad in terms of it featuring a team made up of villains, at its core “I Am Su...

  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 ReviewMighty Morphin Power Rangers from BOOM! Studios has been the biggest surprise of the year. While I’ve been a big fan of Kyle Higgins since his Nightwing run there has never been a great comic book starring the teenagers with attitude. But that has...

  • Black Widow #8 Review
    on Dec 1, 2016 in Marvel Comics Black Widow
    Opening up the latest volume of Black Widow with a deeper exploration of her past created a strong core for Mark Waid and Chris Samnee to expand on. The focus on Black Widow’s relationship with the Headmistress of the Red Room showed us how much Na...
  • Teen Titans #2 Review
    on Nov 29, 2016 in DC Comics Teen Titans
    The latest volume of Teen Titans kicked off on a strong note with its Rebirth and first issue. Bringing in Damian Wayne, the newest Robin, did wonders for the series. His introduction as the Teen Titans new leader was nicely balanced with the classic...
  • Titans #5 Review
    on Nov 28, 2016 in DC Comics The Flash Flash Titans
    The Titans series has one of the deepest connections to the events of DC Rebirth currently on the stands. That is not a surprise with the series prominently featuring the original Wally West on the team. To his credit Dan Abnett has done a very good...
  • 2016 Comic Books I Am Thankful ForI haven’t made it a secret that 2014-2015 was probably the time period I was the least compelled with buying comics. There was a long period that I actually stop reading comic books during that time. Looking back I’m glad I took that break as 201...

  • Invincible #131 Review
    on Nov 21, 2016 in Image Comics Invincible

  • Superman #11 Review
    on Nov 20, 2016 in Batman DC Comics Superman Super Sons
    With Superman and his son having adventures together in the DC Universe it was inevitable for the SuperFamily to run into Batman and Robin. Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason delivered a strong start to the first meeting of Jon Kent and Damien Wayne. T...
  • All-New Wolverine #14 ReviewEnemy of the State II had a strong start right out of the gate with All-New Wolverine #13. Tom Taylor and Nik Virella properly set the stage for Laura Kinney to be seen as a villain in the eyes of the public. And by grounding Enemy of the State II wi...
  • Nightwing #9 Review
    on Nov 16, 2016 in Batman DC Comics Nightwing Superman
    As big of a fan that I was of the Grayson ongoing it has been great to have Dick Grayson return to the classic blue and black Nightwing costume. With Tim Seeley continuing on as writer of Nightwing the series has been able to continue the character d...
  • How I Became An Archie Comics Fan
    on Nov 15, 2016 in Bunker Bulletins Archie
