Red Hood and the Outlaws #25 Review: Poignant Intense and Compelling

Red Hood and the Outlaws #25 Review: Poignant, Intense, and Compelling

Batman is ready to bring the Red Hood down for good.The ending is also bittersweet and comes with a nice twist.There is something of a back-up tale with the “full” Outlaws lineup (Red Hood, Arsenal, Starfire, Bizarro, Artemis, and Creeper), and it turns out to be a storybook being read by Ma Gunn.[caption id="attachment_899934" align="aligncenter"[...]

Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 Review: A Bizarrely Affecting and Tragic Story

Even then, balancing goofy and tragic seems to be the point, and it’s an interesting balance to attempt.[caption id="attachment_882774" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 art by Allison Borges and Veronica Gandini[/caption]Dexter Soy and Alisson Borges are the artists on this comic, and they balance the comic well[...]

Mera: Queen of Atlantis #5 Review – The Miniseries Finally Comes Alive

The raise the stakes, put more people in opposition against one another, and put our protagonist into a position where she must make some tough choices.Ocean Master continues to be a fascinating character, and I hope he doesn’t drop off again after this story.[caption id="attachment_875177" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Mera: Queen of Atlantis #5 art by Lan[...]

Mera: Queen of Atlantis #4 Review &#8211 Wasted Potential and Buried Ideas

Mera: Queen of Atlantis #4 Review – Wasted Potential and Buried Ideas

Plus, the scenes with Tula and Erin are especially dull and seem to only serve to reiterate what we are already seeing: Ocean Master is changing as a person.Those scenes with Erin and Tula arguably go somewhere in the end, but it’s out of left field and could have been just as well shown without[...]

Red Hood and the Outlaws #22 Review: The Plight of Bizarro

Red Hood and the Outlaws #22 Review: The Plight of Bizarro

The finale with Jason Todd and Bizarro watching the stars while the latter’s vocabulary deteriorates even threatened to jerk a tear or two from my fetid soul.Also, watching Red Hood get one over on the Penguin likely never get old.In any case, this comic impresses with its ability to capture and assign meeting to the[...]

Mera Queen of Atlantis #3 Review: Padding and Pallid Protagonists

That’s to say nothing of how awful a character Erin has turned out to be.[caption id="attachment_837876" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Mera: Queen of Atlantis #3 art by Lan Medina, Norm Rapmund, and Veronica Gandini[/caption]Lan Medina’s artwork is still quite good, even if it’s occasional focus on T&A only exacerbates the thematic issues of the comic[...]

Mera Queen of Atlantis #2 Review: Verging on Great but a Bit Too Melodramatic

I’m very aware that such melodrama is common to the Big Two and has been a part of Dan Abnett’s Aquaman, but it feels so much more prominent in this entry.[caption id="attachment_819988" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 art by Lan Medina, Norm Rapmund, and Veronica Gandini[/caption]Lan Medina’s artwork is strong, and Ocean Master[...]
