Every week (When I have time) I will give my two-three sentence thoughts on every book attached with a score from 1-5.
Old Lady Harley #2
Old Lady Harley is fun with it’s world building, but it’s jokes are very hit or miss. I enjoyed the always guessing ability to make this world interesting, but certain parts of the world make no sense like the Canadian Prime
Heroes in Crisis #3
Heroes in Crisis has some really interesting ideas about PTSD and Trauma. However, plot wise nothing moves forward which probably works in the stories favor. There is a real tradgedy behind Wally and Lagoon Boy which is portrayed VERY well.
Justice League Odyssey #3
The action in this book is a MESS. Though the core ideas are fun, Williamson has to balance too many characters voice and moments and as such no one character’s story points make sense. Who’s doing what often became muddy and confusing and the action was hard to picture. Not a bad book though.
Batgirl for intents and purposes is fun! The dark internet stuff is super convoluted and forced. I get the direction the writer wants to go but she doesn’t quite nail it. She does succeed however in crafting a fun story which at the end of the day is really nice.
This story has established such a wonderful dynamic that continues to build while also reflecting on what happened in the past. The story has a lot of heart even as everything is falling apart. Robin Beyond is about to face his first real test and I could not be more excited.
Aquaman/Justice League #1
As a story, this ending is a mess. As the end of Abnett’s Aquaman run, this issue is okay. Abnett’s Aquaman at it’s heart has celebrated Aquaman and Mera’s relationship. Unfortunately Abnett never got to have a conclusion and at best got some tie-in stuff. Abnett needed an epilogue issue and instead had to cut it short and unfortunately Drowned Earth is a sour end to Abnett’s amazing run.
Wonder Woman #59
Wonder Woman is a fine comic. It’s new direction was full of intrigue, but it took to little time developing Ares before getting political. I’m normally a fan of a political angle but it can’t rush in order to get to that part. As such, the new Ares feels kinda bland.
