Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 09/21/16

Welcome to the Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week column or maybe I should call it the Superman Celebration!  Yep, the Man of Steel is hitting hard this week and I love it.  I'd also like to welcome Eric Shea to the festivities as he usually isn't seen in these parts...he is known as the "Tough Scorer" of the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew.  In case you wondered, Reggie is known as the "Cute One" and I'm known as the "Quiet One".  -Jim

Superman #7
Score: 9.5/10

What Eric Said:

This is the issue I've been waiting for when it comes to this series and it delivers on all fronts.  The story is well written and gives us heart and humor, plus the super heroics we've come to expect, while also showing us what a Super Family does when it's time to put the cape down and spend a little time together.  On top of all that, the art in this issue is probably the best I've seen from this series and even though I know we'll have to get to some terrible evil that Clark will have to take on, I wish we could just continue seeing a day in the life of the Superman Family like this issue gives us. Read Full Review

Green Lanterns #7
Score: 9.0/10

What Eric Said:

Green Lanterns continues to surprise me because as we saw in the previous issue, it seems that all the nonsense that we dealt with in the first few issues are over and now it's time to get to who these characters are and what kind of heroes they can be.  Yeah, we don't have a great big threat going after our Lanterns here, but the situation is definitely perilous for Simon and I loved seeing our Lantern heroes getting together and actually being caring partners.  I love the recent writing of this series and the art has just been great.   Read Full Review

Trinity #1
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

Francis Manapul starts off his series, not with a bang, but by catching up the reader before moving forward.  He does a good job of getting these familiar strangers together and I am intrigued to see where it is all heading.  His art is simply incredible and I could spend a long time just staring at the pages he gives us here.  All in all, this was a good start to a series I now have high hopes for. Read Full Review

Green Arrow #7
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

Ben Percy ends his Sins of the Mother mini arc with a whole lot of action and while I had fun, it was a bit forced.  Still, it doesn't take itself too seriously and it looks amazing!  This Emiko story has put Green Arrow back up their with my favorites of Rebirth. Read Full Review
