FI feel like Bendis is really firing on all cylinders right now. He put out some great comics this week.
Event Leviathan - This book is pure Bendis/Maleev. So if you don’t/do like the page below, you’re probably (not) going to like this book. This issue is largely dominated by conversations between Batman & Red Hood and Plastic Man & Leviathan. I don’t feel like Red Hood is Leviathan but am not entirely sure who it is at this point. I kind love how Leviathan is played and look forward to the answer to that mystery. I would generally prefer a bit more progress but this issue is oddly satisfying. Hopefully, our group of detectives gets a bit closer to solving this mystery soon.
Naomi #6 - I’ve really dug this book so far and this conclusion to the first volume is no different. This book was really Bendis doing the kind of new, young superhero origin for DC like he did so well with both Ultimate Spider-Men at Marvel. This book had a lot of heart in a similar vein to those books and the Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel book. Naomi has a lot of potential as a character in that respect. I’ll be curious where the character goes from here.
Superman #13 - We’re finally starting to get some of the answers we’ve been promised on the “true” reason behind the destruction of Krypton and the role Rogul Zaar plate in that. I just realized that the group Jor-El is a part of of is oddly reminiscent of The Illuminati from Bendis’s New Avengers run but on a slightly more intergalactic scale. Looking forward to finally getting some answers on this more than year long mystery.
I haven’t had a chance to read Batman: Universe #1 but am very much looking forward to it.
