Detective Comics 2022 Annual #1 Review

   
  
   

Written by: Ram V
Art by: Christopher Mitten, Rafael Albuquerque, Hayden Sherman
Colors by: Lee Loughridge
Letters by: Deron Bennett
Cover art by: Evan Cagle
Cover price: $5.99
Release date: November 29, 2022

Detective Comics 2022 Annual spins a yarn of the early days of Gotham (called Gothame) and the machinations of predators vying for power.

Is It Good?

Ehh...Detective Comics 2022 Annual would have been better placed as an Elseworlds story. As a continuation of Ram V's never-ending setup to his first Act in the ongoing Detective Comics, it somewhat makes sense in some spots and doesn't make sense in others.

Dark Crisis: Young Justice #6 Review

   

   
Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin
Art team: Laura Braga, Luis Guerrero, and Pat Brosseau
Release Date: 11/15/22
Price: $3.99
Reviewed by: Jon Wayne

If you're reading this review, you know I've done my best to be fair and impartial throughout this series. Still, now that we have finally reached the end of this dumpster fire, my gloves are coming off: Meghan Fitzmartin is a hack who can't write herself out of a paper bag and shouldn't be allowed near DC comics characters ever again.
