Action Comics #1023 Review: A Big Chunk Of Biff And Pow
Of course, visuals from the legendary John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson, Brad Anderson, and Dave Sharpe help this feel like a big chunk of biff and pow. What didn't work? Despite the clarity of the plot's punch and counterpunch, it was more a series of things that happened than a traditional narrative structure, and definitely not[...]

Nightwing #47 cover by Mike Perkins and Dave McCaig
That happens at the end of this issue, and then someone gets sucked into a freaking phone, which is also immeasurably silly.

Nightwing #46 cover by Mike Perkins and Dave McCaig
Some of the Dick Grayson charm is still in there, and I'm not going to say no to Batgirl as a guest star.

New Challengers #2 cover by Andy Kubert and Brad Anderson
It's not a bad twist, but the intentional ass-pull nature of it isn't as cute as it thinks it is. New Challengers #2 art by Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson, and Brad Anderson Andy Kubert once again delivers the artwork to the comic, and the line-heavy and somewhat grainy style is still a good fit for this iteration[...]
Nightiwng #45 cover by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire
There are some moments where the comic can sound a little like a Luddite, but it raises some genuine points about the internet age, the doxxing plot point being among them. Nightwing #45 art by Chris Mooneyham, Klaus Janson, and Nick Filardi Chris Mooneyham brings a more classic look to Nightwing than previous artists The detailing is[...]
New Challengers #1 cover by Andy Kubert and Brad Anderson
She was an unlicensed doctor and herbalist in Gotham City who genuinely tried to do good for others, and the moment that led to her being brought to Challengers Mountain is both badass and believable given what we know about her up until that point. The New Challengers #1 art by Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson, and[...]
Turning Dark Knight 1 And 2 Into Dark Knight III, Today
The comic has often featured thematic flashbacks and recreations of previous Dark Knight scenes but today it goes overboard. Not just with Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson recreating scenes of a Batmobile… From Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's original… both on the outside. And on the inside. But Frank Miller also reprising a scene from The Dark Knight Strikes Again[...]
