Just read … Harley Quinn Suicide Squad April Fools’ Special

Jim Lee’s art is, as alwsys, great. The story was good, but the big thing is that THIS is the prelude for the post-Rebirth Suicide Squad starting in a few months, with what I think is a very interesting premise…

Just read … Batman Superman #30

Tom Taylor is becoming one if my favorite writers. This was the last issue of a self contained Batman/Superman in space story, and he hit all the right notes with both lead characters.

Just read … Doctor Strange #6

I have been a fan of Doctor Strange in comics for a long time, but thus new series keeps blowing me away. Magic is a tough thing to write without it solving the problems it causes, but Jason Aaron has a perfect grasp of the costs and benefits of magic. The art by Chris Bachalo is Perfect! Just friggin’ perfect!

Just read … avengers Standoff: Alpha

Nice art, great dialogue. This is the prelude to what will be Civil War II in the Marvel Universe, but it already has a strong cast and a very accessible premise. Good guys fighting bad guys will ensue!

Just Read … Howard the Duck #3

image

This is the conclusion to the first story of this new series, and I’m happy to say I have enjoyed it quite a bit.

It isn’t the original Howard. But it is funny satirical and sometimes sweet — which is at least somewhat like the original.

This Howard is rooted in the Marvel Universe more than he used to be. The fires he faces are familiar to readers of other books, but maybe in a lighter tone. That’s actually an welcome change.

The Gwen-pool back up story was good but a little to short.
