Wonder Woman #753 Review


Writer: Steve Orlando
Artist: Max Raynor
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020

DC announced this week that Mariko Tamaki would be taking over this book this summer, and it's a shame because while I don't love Steve Orlando's Wonder Woman, a lot of people do, and more importantly, it is evident that Steve Orlando loves Wonder Woman.  He always ends up being the stopgap for the next prominent writer, and he deserves better.  Maybe that's why he is writing at Marvel now?!?  That's for future us to worry about, though, as we jump into this issue.  Is it any good?  Let's find out...

Catwoman #21 Review


The End

Writer: Joelle Jones
Artist: Fernando Blanco
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: March 11, 2020
Cover Price: $3.99

This is the last issue of Catwoman from Joelle Jones, and while I was looking forward to her run when it was announced, not enough happened in it to recommend it at all.  That said, I am still hoping she can end what mainly was her one story in a good enough fashion so I can think it was almost two years well spent.  So, how did it end, and was it any good?  Let's find out...

Hawkman #22 Review



Getting Maced



Written By: Robert Venditti
Art By: Fernando Pasarin, Oclair Albert, Wade Von Grawbadger, Jeremy Cox, Rob Leigh
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020


The saga of the Sky Tyrant continues as Carter Hall's friends, Hawkwoman, The Atom and Adam Strange desperately try to find a cure for the Batman Who Laugh's Infection that now runs through our Winged Warrior's body, making him into his evil Earth-3 version from a past life.  Yeah, it's a lot to take in, but that's nothing compared to the Sky Tyrant's plan to open up a doorway to another dimension that will end billions of lives throughout the Universe so that he can make sure the cosmic scales never even out and that he always has people's lives on his hands, making it so his curse or gift of resurrection never ends and that he'll continue to live on forever.  Let's jump into this issue and see if our heroes are able to stop the infected Carter Hall from achieving his goals or if they'll all go down one by one by the hand of the Sky Tyrant.  Let's check it out.

Batman and the Outsiders #11 Review


Choose Your Own Adventure

Writer: Bryan Hill
Artist: Dexter Soy
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020

It seems that this is the story that Bryan Hill wanted to tell from the get-go on this book.  It lines right up with his Detective Comics run, and while it still has some of the trappings remaining from the Year of the Villain stuff, the focus has changed a bit to Markovia and the alien tech that had me excited for this book in the first place.  Plus, the last issue's cliffhanger was a badass setup to an epic battle royale!  Did Edge come out of retirement for this one as well?  Let's find out...

The Flash #751 Review and *SPOILERS*

Coming from a Mile Away



Written By: Joshua Williamson
Art By: Christian Duce, Luis Guerrero, Hi-Fi
Letters By: Steve Wands
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020

*Non Spoilers and Score At The Bottom*

We have just begun a brand new story in The Flash and while the first issue served more as a jumping on point for new readers I am hoping that we finally dive into this story and it becomes something that excites me. That being said, I have very little faith in that. Our main villain for this story is Paradox who has just become a cookie-cutter villain at this point. We’ve already gotten his backstory and it is incredibly basic and he simply does the classic villain tropes. Typical monologues, letting his lackey take on the hero instead of him, and a couple other things make him extremely boring as a main villain but maybe I’ll be proven wrong. I’d certainly like to think that will happen as I have been wrong many times before, but I need to see this book take some big strides before we get to that point. Hopefully, we will see those strides in this issue. So, let’s jump into this latest issue and see where it takes us.

Young Justice #14 Review



Guest Stars Galore! 


Written By: Brian Michael Bendis, David Walker
Art By: John Timms, Michael Avon Oeming, Gabe Eltaeb, Wes Abbott
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020


The questions continue as we jump back into Young Justice, where we wonder how this team not only remembers one another but how they were ever a team to begin with in this continuity....... not to mention, how the hell everyone they come in contact with seem to know them even though their fellow heroes don't.  It's all odd and it's all weird, but we'll continue our story, where our Young Justice team, teamed up with the Wonder Twins and Dial H's Miguel and Summer and now Aqualad, Sideways, Spoiler and Arrowette to go after Dr. Glory and hopefully find Superboy as they take her down.  Let's jump into this issue and see if anything has become clearer about how anything in this book makes sense or if it just digs itself into a deeper hole.  Let's check it out.

Superman #21 Review



King Of The Earth


Written By: Brian Michael Bendis
Art By: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Oclair Albert, Alex Sinclair, Dave Sharpe
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: March 11, 2020


It's time to deal with some repercussions for Superman revealing his identity to the world, or more accurately, it's time for Lois Lane to deal with those repercussions because now that a video has been sent to the Daily Star from the Unity Day speech that created the United Planets, people believe that Superman is declaring himself King of Earth because he said to a bunch of aliens that he would speak for the people of Earth........ Yeah, it's kind of ridiculous and that's not even talking about the idea of an alien live streaming the events and sending an email to the second-best newspaper in Metropolis.  Let's jump into this issue and see if things work themselves up or if the press work themselves into a frenzy.  Let's check it out.
