Aquaman #30 Review: Welcome To The Resistance

Aquaman #30 Review: Welcome To The Resistance

Slightly underdone Sejic is still better than many artists.While this is an unexciting issue of Aquaman to discuss, it is still another solid entry in Dan Abnett and Sejic’s tenure on Aquaman It lays the groundwork for the finale pretty well, and next issue should be quite something I do still recommend this issue, and[...]

Titans #16 Review: The End Of (Older) Wally West

Titans #16 Review: The End Of (Older) Wally West?

It’s painfully obvious, and it’s a rookie mistake.Titans #16 was good outside of that, and I do not mean to disparage Dan Abnett as a writer He’s a phenomenal comics’ scribe, and both this title and Aquaman are among the best of DC’s output at this moment in time Everyone makes mistakes and has a[...]
