Tim Drake: Robin #1: Welcome to the Marina

Tim Drake has been long overdue for an ongoing series. When writer Meghan Fitzmartin (who wrote Robin Eternal, Tim Drake’s stories in Batman: Urban Legends, and Dark Crisis: Young Justice) was announced to be the writer of the ongoing series, it was a shock to nobody. However, when artist Riley Rossmo was announced as theContinue reading “Tim Drake: Robin #1: Welcome to the Marina”

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest # 7

The most recent issue of Batman / Superman: World’s Finest was a great reminder of why this series has been so consistently enjoyable. With the first arc wrapped up, it seems like the new one will be about legacy (which seems to be a trend). But more interestingly, it’s about the found-family archetype. Reuniting afterContinue reading “Batman/Superman: World’s Finest # 7”

Action Comics: Warworld Rising

After a brief stint during the line-wide event Future State, Phillip Kennedy Johnson returned to the Man of Steel covering both Action Comics and Superman. This was before Clark Kent’s son Jon Kent became the Superman of Earth (sporting the title Superman: Son of Kal-El by Tom Taylor) while Clark Kent makes a dramatic change. That’s where Warworld RisingContinue reading “Action Comics: Warworld Rising”

Nightwing: Fear State

After a reenergizing first volume of Nightwing that uplifted the spirits of many Nightwing fans, the second volume struggled to keep the momentum. An unexpected crossover into Gotham City made the series seem a little repetitive. Too often has Dick Grayson been included in a Batman event at the expense of his storyline. Three monthsContinue reading “Nightwing: Fear State”

Nightwing Volume 1: Leaping Into The Light

When Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo signed up to lead the creative ship for Nightwing after over a year of unrelenting frustration from an ongoing amnesia story that was already time to end, fans rejoiced.

Nightwing 80: Into the Fire

It goes without saying that the Nightwing creative team is publishing one of the best comic books right now. Today’s Nightwing issue is nothing short of a shot of serotonin for Nightwing fans.

Review: Nightwing 79 is All About the Heart

When the second preview for Nightwing 79 broke out, some fans were very vocal about the idea of Dick Grayson criticizing Bruce Wayne. However, when the full issue became available, it became evident to many how much of an inconsequential comment that was. Regardless of how Dick Grayson views how Bruce spends his time andContinue reading “Review: Nightwing 79 is All About the Heart”

Future State Nightwing 2: A Dynamic Finale

Dick Grayson is ready to put an end to the Magistrate once and for all or die trying.

Future State Nightwing: Refreshingly Grimdark

In a not too distant possible future, Gotham City is in shambles. Bruce Wayne is dead (or believed to be- see Future State Dark Detective), and the militaristic Magistrate has crushed the hope out of everyone. Despite this Dick Grayson, leader of the resistance, is ready to go to war and save the future ofContinue reading “Future State Nightwing: Refreshingly Grimdark”

Future State Wonder Woman: A Sensational Story

Yara Flor’s Wonder Woman has been one of the most anticipated stories from DC’s Future State initiative. Although DC plans to incorporate multiple Wonder Women stories in Future State, this is Yara Flor’s debut appearance. Joëlle Jones hit a grand slam when she wrote and penciled this story. With colors by Jordie Bellaire, the twoContinue reading “Future State Wonder Woman: A Sensational Story”

Review: Dark Nights Death Metal: The Last Stories of the DC Universe

Dark Nights Death Metal: The Last Stories of the DC Universe is a lovely farewell story to the DC Rebirth initiative. For a while now, it’s seemed like the rebirth concept had been fading, but with Dark Nights: Death Metal coming to a close ( and DC Future State on the rise) it’s been madeContinue reading “Review: Dark Nights Death Metal: The Last Stories of the DC Universe”
