Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 10/22/16

Another week, another bunch of DC Comics that we all loved, hated and/or didn't care about.  Of course, this list is the ones that made the Weird Science cut as the best of the week.  It's a little longer this week, so I guess we will call this week a winner.  So, why did it feel down to me?  Well, I only had one book on the list, so maybe that explains things a bit.  - Jim

Injustice: Ground Zero #3
Score: 9.9/10

What Dilyn Said:

I loved this chapter, as much as I've loved the series so far. “Sidekicks” Part 1 really delves into Harley's love for her new goons. Let me just say, if you still haven't jumped in, pick these 3 chapters up and follow it. The art is so nice and these writers have really captured Harley's character so well as we continue her life post-Joker in this Injustice world. Read Full Review

Trinity #2
Score: 9.0/10

What Jim Said:

Francis Manapul has a winner with Trinity.  The story is full of smiles and mysteries and the pacing is just about perfect.  That combined with his incredible art makes me wish this was a bi-monthly book because I can't wait a whole month for the next issue.   Read Full Review

Harley Quinn #6
Score: 8.5/10

What Reggie Said:

This story arc continues to be a lot of fun, and I'm enjoying the punk rock stylings of the Skull Bags. There aren't any shocking reveals or crazy twists that turn everything you believed to be true on its ear, but the jokes land and the art is great and it's terrific to see team Harley Quinn on such a tight focus. Now if someone wants to put some punk rock music to G.G. Harlin's lyrics about curdled milk, I'd be glad to give it a listen! Read Full Review

Aquaman #9
Score: 8.5/10

What Reggie Said:

A nice wrap up to a story primarily about the destruction of public property. There's some character development, we learn a little more about the mysterious Widowhood that are training Mera to be a Queen, and...Shaggy Man! Do I really need to say more? Shaggy Man throws an oil truck! I don't usually put spoilers in here but you should know that's like the least of the damage he causes! I had a great time with this two-part story and I encourage more comics to take this lead. Read Full Review

Suicide Squad Most Wanted: El Diablo and Boomerang #3
Score: 8.0/10

What Jody Said:

Once again,Suicide Squad's Most Wanted has surprised me with its quality. The continuing adventures of El Diablo are fun and have me completely engrossed with the mystery surrounding Checkmate, while the opening of Killer Croc's story shows off some of the character's best features alongside an epic battle. While I'm not super enthusiastic about Level's art, it did provide the savage tone of Croc's story was giving while Richard's art continues to look fantastic. Overall, another great chapter to a series that was thought to fail. Read Full Review

Green Lanterns #9
Score: 8.0/10

What Eric Said:

While this issue of Green Lanterns didn't offer much with the heroes of this book, it did go into the full backstory of the new villain for our Phantom Lantern arc and it was a pretty interesting read.  Everything looked great in this issue and the cliffhanger got me really excited to see what's coming next because I'm not sure if our Lantern heroes of Earth will be able to defend against it. Read Full Review

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

I will gladly eat my share of crow for having doubted this series, because I must say I am enjoying it quite a bit. One should put on their Frank Miller hat before reading, but once applied I think you'll find this is tonally in lockstep with Dark Knight Returns. The story itself is okay, perhaps not worth the cover price, but not an abominable rip-off either. And Kubert does a bang-up impression of Miller's artwork while he was in his prime. I still say you should check this out in trade if you just want to read a fun story, but that is more than I might have recommended when this was first announced. Read Full Review
