I can’t believe how good comics were this week. I picked up 5 books and they were all solid.
Justice League #17 - This is another action packed story with roots all the way back to @bryanhitch’s Rao arc on JLA that feels like it is continuing to build to something truly epic. I don’t know how to describe how good it is except that it’s like Heaven’s Ladder mixed with one of my favorite episodes of Super Friends.
Super Sons #2 - I love the chemistry between Jonathan and Damian in this book. It really feels like an extension of a lot of the early Rebirth stories in Superman. I also really like SuperLex. I hope he’s around for a while.
Superman #19 - Can I just say how much I like this Mr. Mxyzptlk. The way his appearance keeps change to different versions and he addresses fourth wall kind of stuff is a lot of fun. There still hasn’t been a lot of information give on Mr. Oz nor did he even appear at all despite his appearance on the cover of this issue. I enjoyed the issue and am still curious how they will coalesce things into whatever new status quo they have planned. I get more optimistic as things go but am still hesitant. Loving this story.
Trinity #7 - This issue shows Ra’s Al Ghul, Lex Luthor and Circe being summoned by some malevolent force in order to team up against the namesakes of this book. Clayton Mann’s artwork is fabulous. The creature they fight reminded me a villain with the combined powers of the Super Friends that a have a very vague memory of from an episode of that show. I’m curious to see where this arc goes.
Wild Storm #2 - Another stellar issue. We’re starting to see the lay of the land (and the sky as it were) in this issue. This really does feel like all of the Wildstorm universe in one book. It looks like things are going to precipitate fast in the next issue. I can’t wait.
