Detective Comics #1051 Review

Psycho-Pirate Qu'est-ce Que C'est

Writer: Matthew Rosenberg, Mariko Tamaki
Artist: Fernando Blanco, Max Raynor
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: February 1, 2022

I haven't enjoyed this Shadows of the Bat weekly story as much as others, but things can change quickly.  I need the puzzle pieces to start fitting together and see this is something big and vital.  Simply put, I need to see I am not wasting my time and money on a story that talks big but reads small.  Maybe Psycho-Pirate showing up will do just that.  Let's find out...

Justice League Incarnate #4 Review


Crisis Center

Writer: Dennis Culver, Joshua Williamson
Artist: Andrei Bressan, Chris Burnham, Mike Norton
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: February 1, 2022

I keep telling people that this and the Infinite Frontier mini-series that proceeded it are the big books going at DC Comics right now.  I have two issues with that.  First, why am I the one hyping these books more than DC Comics?  Second, why does it feel as if lately, Joshua Williamson is making things too goofy for people to take me and this book seriously?  Still, big things are afoot, so let's jump into my Justice League Incarnate #4 review!

Dark Knights of Steel #4 Review


No More Lonely Knights

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Bengal
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: February 1, 2022

Dark Knights of Steel is one of my favorite books going at DC Comics Right now.  I am a sucker for fantasy stories so putting my favorite DC characters in a high fantasy tale is a win-win for me, and Tom Taylor writing it is icing on the cake!  So let's get on to the review...

Batman #120 Review

Blind Leading the Blind

Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Mikel Janin, Jorge Molina
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: February 2, 2022

I have been enjoying the start of Joshua Williamson's Batman run.  It's no surprise that he has dipped into the Morrison Batman Inc. as he is a self-professed fanboy, and his other books have been very Morrison influenced as well.  It does feel like he's been easing the readers into his story a bit, but I think it's time to get this party started!  Does this issue happen?  Let's find out...

One-Star Squadron #3 Review

Corporations Suck and Water Is Wet

Written by: Mark Russell
Art by: Steve Lieber
Colors by: Dave Stewart
Letters by: Dave Sharpe
Cover price: $3.99

One-Star Squadron #3 paints a grim picture of corporate restructuring as Superman appears in front of the HEROZ4U executives to deliver an ultimatum. When the deal is offered, executives do what executives do best - make everything worse.

Suicide Squad #12 Review

The Road To War

Written By: Robbie Thompson, Dennis Hopeless
Art By: Eduardo Pansica, Julio Ferreira, Dexter Soy, Marcelo Maiolo, Matt Herms, Wes Abbott
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: February 1, 2022

In case you don't remember where we left off in the previous issue, Rick Flag was none too happy with how Amanda Waller has been running Task Force X. With her being on the run from the government and all, Rick went and put together his own Suicide Squad to go after his former employer.  While that was going on, our current Suicide Squad was proving themselves to the Wall by going to Earth-8 and taking on their versions of the Avengers and Thunderbolts.  Still, as we've gotten with a lot of this book, it just seemed like a scavenger hunt where we go to a new location, fight and move on.  Hopefully, with this issue, everything changes as we're heading towards the War For Earth-3. So let's jump into this issue and see how everything pans out.
