Detective Comics #938 - I’ve run out of things to say about this book. It’s just awesome. Great characters, gorgeous artwork, brilliant writing. My favourite ongoing. By far. Stuff escalates this issue, as another 90’s character makes his return, and the Bat-team make things look easy. Too easy?
For me Superwoman #1 was much better than I expected it to be. Spur of the moment purchase, based primarily on how much I enjoyed Jiminez’ work on WW back in the day. I’ve got little prior affinity for any of the characters in this book, but I quickly got caught up in what was going on, and definitely plan on picking up the next issue.
And, from last week …
Superman #4 - I should really love this book. Tomasi, Gleason, my Lois & Clark, I’ve even got a little boy Jon’s age. It’s got all the ingredients of a book I should absolutely adore. But I don’t. I’ll stick around for the rest of this arc, but I think I’m gone after that. That being said there were a couple of cool moments in this issue; no. 1 being Hacken from Gotham!
Suicide Squad: Rebirth - I liked this a lot. I don’t know Rob Williams at all, but he wrote a great one shot here (his 2000AD background serves him well). Tan’s artwork was scratchy and inconsistent panel to panel, but it’s similar enough to Jim Lee’s not to feel jarring. I do think the colouring helps with that a lot. Looking forward to the next few issues to see how this shapes up.
