Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 09/07/16

Hey Kids, Stuff!!!  Stuff like one place where you can come and see what books the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew think are the best of the week.  Remember, these are the books that we think are the best, but that doesn't mean that you HAVE to love them as well.  Or does it?!?  Actually, it does!

Batman #6
Score: 9.5/10

What Jim Said:

While it would be hard to top last issue's epic conclusion to Gotham's story, Tom King gets very close this week.  I love Gotham Girl and seeing her in such a bad place was gut wrenching, but only lead to a great moment where we see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Of course, that tunnel is going to lead Batman to some pretty bad places, but that's the fun of it all, right?  The story, characters and art (by Ivan Reis this week) are top of the class and this issue is just one more reason that Batman is my favorite Rebirth book.  Now, I have to go find my tissues.Read Full Review

Green Arrow #6
Score: 8.5/10

What Jim Said:

While I was worried about this story going in, I really enjoyed reading it.  It is an Emiko story, but there is still plenty of Ollie, just enough Shado and lots of action.  Sure, it's a ton of recap and setup, but the art was really good and I am looking forward to the next chapter in this arc. Read Full Review

Supergirl #1
Score: 8.3/10

What Jim Said:

While I wasn't a huge fan of the Supergirl Rebirth issue, I had a really good time with this one.  Steve Orlando shows us the difficulties facing Kara in her new life, but the cliffhanger showed they may have only just begun.  Throw in the Danvers doing their best as new parents and a great art style by Brian Ching and I am happy to say that I am now fully on board with this book and can't wait to continue on with Steve Orlando's Supergirl.   Read Full Review

Superman #6
Score: 8.0/10

What Eric Said:

This issue does right by all of us by bringing the heart back into this series by having more than just Superman punching something, while saying that he's protecting his family.  We've got real interactions here that open up this series to all kinds of things in the future, while giving us some excellent art throughout........ I just wasn't that into the whole Eradicator thing, but thankfully this issue delivers more than that and gets me excited for what's to come. Read Full Review

Bloodlines #6
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

Someone told the creative team of Bloodlines that there wasn't enough gore in it, and they were like, "Really? Okay," and made the next issue much bloodier. Then they heard there still wasn't enough gore, and they said, "Are you sure? If you say so," and made the next issue that much bloodier. Then the creative team overheard someone say that even now, there still wasn't enough gore, so the team figured that's it, we have one more issue, let's spray veins everywhere. And that's when they learned that what they'd overheard all along was Dan Didio complaining about his pus-filled canker sore. Read Full Review

The Flintstones #3
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

The town of Bedrock is beset by little green men, and I don't mean leprechauns. This is a pretty entertaining story with a little bit of pathos to keep things interesting. The artwork is fantastic, I'm fully used to the character designs now and recognize everyone pretty easily. If you enjoyed the Flintstones cartoon (or still enjoy it), then you could do worse than to give this comic book a look-see. Read Full Review
