Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 08/31/16

Did you ever wish that there was one place to go and see what comic books the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew liked the most in a particular week?  If so, you are a lazy person just like me and I love you for that!  Of course, to kick off this column, I picked an Annual week because I am a big dummy, but you have to start somewhere, right?  So, here are the picks for the week of 8/31/16.  Enjoy!

Future Quest #4

Score: 9/10

What Jody Said:

If I had to describe this issue, and this series, in a single word, its fun. The characters are memorable, the action is intense, the humor is funny. This is just a great book. The art is phenomenal as usual and continues to capture the feel of cartoons of yesteryear while still looking new and cool. If you haven't picked up this series yet, what are you waiting for? The adventure is just beginning! Read Full Review

Gotham Academy Annual #1

Score: 9/10

What Reggie Said:

Here's a solid, entertaining story, rich in Gotham lore of the past...and future! Instead of centering on Olive and Maps as usual, this issue focuses instead on the secondary cast of the book, and to good effect. Various artists contribute a wide range of styles to this issue, and the way the tale is structured allows for it. A great showing from the old Gotham Academy writing team that bodes well for the new issues coming in September! Read Full Review

Injustice: Year Five Chapter #37

Score: 9.5/10

What Jim Said:

Brian Buccellato introduces us to the heroes that will eventually save the day and it's like having dj vu all over again.  While their Earth seems like a grand old time compared to the one we've been dealing with, Buccellato shows us there is trouble in paradise which will have to be dealt with before anyone is saving anybody.  The story and art were excellent and the cliffhanger makes me wish this book came out every day! Read Full Review

Suicide Squad: War Crimes Special #1

Score: 8.5/10
What Jim Said:

This was a fun little one-shot Suicide Squad story by the daddy of the whole damn thing.  In the end, nothing and everything happens which is par for the course for the Squad.  One mission just leads to the next, but it was fun to ride along with John Ostrander as he takes another spin around the block.  He still has it and I hope DC let's us see more of it in the near future. Read Full Review

DC Comics Bombshells Chapter #58 Review

Score: 8/10

What Reggie Said:

A lot of real-world history mingled with phony locations and personnel are what great comics are made of, and this one is stuffed to the seams. The story is really interesting, and might be of particular interest to history buffs, though it is really wordy and not exactly full of the punching and kicking we've come to expect from comic books. The art is great, very tight and yet lively, and I sure would like to see more of it in the future.This is a cool comic book, worth checking out for the dollar! Read Full Review
