Dark Crisis: Young Justice #3 Review


Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin
Art: Laura Braga, Luis Guerrero, and Pat Brosseau
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 16, 2022
Reviewed by: Jon Wayne

I will not sugarcoat it no longer: this book is garbage. There is no clear plot halfway through this series that is the main tie-in book to a Crisis level event. The characterization of the heroes we’re all reading this for assumes nothing has happened to them since they were originally on Young Justice in the 90s.

Black Adam #3 Review

No Redemption In Death

Written By: Priest
Art By: Rafa Sandoval, Matt Herms, Troy Peteri
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 16, 2022

For this issue of Black Adam, we're going to be dealing with what happens to a Black Adam after he's dead. I'm talking about the afterlife and I'm talking about what happens to the people around him after he's dead, like his descendant Malik White, who Black Adam just passed his powers down on to. Let's jump into this issue and see if the story gets a bit more in line with what continuity has going on, outside of Dark Crisis obviously, since it already went and made the big step in making Malik at least tolerable. Let's jump into this issue and check it out.

The Flash #785 Review

This Dream Is A Nightmare

Written By: Jeremy Adams
Art By: Amancay Nahuelpan, Jeremy Cox, Rob Leigh
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 16, 2022

Our heroes have found Barry Allen, but will his dream world let him go? We have a weird development going on where when Wally confronted Barry inside of his dream world, Barry saw his former sidekick as the Reverse Flash, and not only that, but Wallace West became mesmerized by his family in this world to the point where he stopped worrying about his mission. Yeah, it seems like these worlds have some defenses to keep Barry busy and to make sure nobody gets him out. Let's see if we can free one of the Fastest Men Alive as we continue our Dark Crisis tie-in because if we can free Barry, we can free the rest of the Justice League, and with that, hopefully, we can fight back the forces of the Great Darkness and Pariah.
