JUGGERNAUT / TASKMASTER [Marvel Comics Reviews]: Sunday Villainy.

I cannot state enough how much fun this book is. Part of the appeal is that it’s not the typical big two reset button back to villainy. Following the course from mid-2000s Uncanny X-Men and even 2010s Thunderbolts, Juggernaut is on a road to redemption. In this issue, Marko stands trial for the financial damages …

ATLANTIS ATTACKS / BATMAN [Comics Reviews]: Black And Blue.

After wondering where disgruntled Namor went after Avengers, I happened to come up on Atlantis Attacks. I mean, where else can I find him? The Avengers were too busy dealing with Khonshu and now Mephisto, and that has gotten rather tiring. Marvel can’t just be X, Thor, and Hulk books. The Agents of Atlas, former …

TMNT – THE LAST RONIN / THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH / X OF SWORDS STASIS [Reviews]: Calm Before The Storm..

Dark future stories where a once-hopeful, determined hero has become disillusioned, angry, and vengeful like the one in The Last Ronin are fairly commonplace in comics, the most famous example being The Dark Knight Returns, which is why it's actually somewhat shocking that it's taken this long to get one from the Teenage Mutant Ninja …

RORSCHACH / AN UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS [Reviews]: Fistful of Mystery.

But the former just won a gang of Emmys, and DC Comics is only too happy to push out more …

Just in time for Halloween, DC Comics released the newest chapter in the American Vampire series. Writer Scott Snyder and artist Rafael Albuquerque return to the series and bring the same energy from the Vertigo line into the Black Label family. DC Black Label made the right choice finding a home for American Vampire 1976, …

G.I. JOE – A REAL AMERICAN HERO / IMMORTAL HULK [Reviews]: The Threshing Place.

I shouldn't have read the second volume of Larry Hama's A Real American Hero. Because now I'm gonna go broke. With Hasbro's "Classified" G.I. Joe toyline taking the collecting world and wallets (and even Target employees) by storm, it was impossible to read the 120 issues of G.I. Joe: ARAH Volume 2 and not be …

WONDER WOMAN 1984 / JUGGERNAUT / BATMAN – THREE JOKERS / X OF SWORDS [Reviews]: Fistful of Truth.

With just a couple of months left before the release of the second Wonder Woman film, DC dropped this tie-in. The theme of the comic? Kids. We start with a fun tale written by Anna Obropta and Louise Simonson entitled “Museum Madness.” In it, three teenagers spend detention at the museum with Diana when some …
