Batman: The Knight #5 Review


Bye Bye Love

Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist: Carmine Di Giandomenico
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: May 17, 2022

I have enjoyed what Chip Zdarsky has been doing on this book, especially since it might be setting up things for his upcoming Batman run.  Of course, Zdarsky still needs to bring his A-game each issue since he is retreading ground here, but so far, so good.  Let's see if that continues this month...

Nightwing #92 Review


Have Some Heart

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Bruno Redondo
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: May 17, 2022

Dick Grayson is my favorite character, and I love Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo.  So why aren't I enjoying this Nightwing book as much as many other people?  Maybe it's because Taylor seems happy just to let everyone know that Dick Grayson is a great guy, and I already know that.  Perhaps it's because he likes to stress how much his friends and family love him, and I already know that.  Maybe it's a combination of those two things combined with a fan service over story approach that makes everything feel like empty calories by the end.  Let's see if we get something tasty and filling this month...

The Flash #782 Review

Prison Vibes

Written By: Jeremy Adams
Art By: Fernando Pasarin, Matt Ryan, Jeremy Cox, Peter Pantazis, Rob Leigh
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: May 17, 2022

The Speed Force is calling us back again to another issue of The Flash, where previously we saw our Scarlet Speedster catching up with his young cousin and current Kid Flash, Wallace West. I love this concept because not only do we not get enough Wallace but a Flash book has been absent a proper sidekick for a long time and Wally and Wallace working together, and giving us a bigger West Flash Family sounds just like the fun I'm looking for. As for our two heroes though, it looks like the fun will have to wait as at the end of the previous issue the two stumbled upon Girder robbing a bank, which while isn't really out of the ordinary, did strike the two as odd as the villain was supposed to be locked up in Iron Heights. Let's jump into this issue and see our Crimson Comets confront Warden Wolf about Girder's early release. Let's check it out.
