Flashpoint: Abin Sur - The Green Lantern 2 2 0 Not my favorite chapter of the numerous Flashpoint tie-ins. There's so many flashbacks, that the action never gets a chance to get rolling. But, the p...

Captain America: Sam Wilson 5 1 0 A fun read, with good art, but the bad guys corny dialogue continues. And what's with so many panels with people having red noses. Neither of these de...

Vikings (2016) 2 1 0 I didn't follow the show, so I don't know how the book compares, but it's a good read. The story would probably be easy to follow if you watched the s...

Aquaman (2016-Present) 5 1 0 Another fabulous issue. A great, if growingly infuriating, story, and beautiful art. A really great team here. The U.S. government, Chief of Staff Gan...

Harley Quinn (2016-Present) 2 1 0 Hopefully the series will outgrow the zombies. Love it otherwise!

All-Star Batman (2016-Present) 1 2 0 The art is good, and it's an interesting story, just not my Batman. If Romita was going to continue doing the art, I'd probably check out a couple mor...

Green Arrow (2016-Present) 3 1 0 Still not happy with the book. The cover artist, Jaun Ferreyra, did the internal art, and it's decidedly better than last issue, but he also did the c...

Tank Girl: Two Girls, One Tank (2016-Present) 1 1 0 Not my cup of tea. Language and some subject matter is just not what I look for in a comic. Gave it to Nick!
by dix on 8/21/2016 9:18:00 PM
Batman: The Blue, The Grey, and The Bat One-Shot 1 0 Great story. Batman in the Civil War was rather like an episode of The Wild, Wild West, with a bat suited Artemus Gordon. The team-up of Batman, Samue...

Scarlet Witch (2016-Present) 8 1 0 Below average art, and a really boring story. A one issue series. The price of picking books off a news letter.

Green Arrow (1988-1998) 122 1 0 Really good read, both story and art. It has a guest artist, and I didn't like his art quite as much as Jim Aparo in issue 123 (part 2 of story).
