Batman #54 Review

What Did You Think of This Week's Comics?

Written by Tom King | Drawn by Matt Wagner

“Even taking the story completely out of the equation, Batman #54 is notable for marking the long overdue return of artist Matt Wagner to the Batman franchise. It’s a shame that said return had to become embroiled in such pointless scandal, but the fact remains that Wagner is the latest in a series of talented artists to leave their mark on this series. Couple that with the appeal of having writer Tom King reconnect with Dick Grayson, and this issue never fails to please.” -Jesse

Cover #1 Review

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Drawn by David Mack “Even ignoring his more mainstream projects, Brian Bendis’ recent move to DC Comics has been worth it for the impact its had on his creator-owned projects.

Cover is the third new Jinxworld project to launch in recent weeks. And that’s not even counting The United States vs. Murder Inc. #1, also out this week.

It’s enough to wonder if DC is launching too many books in too short a span of time. Fortunately, Cover #1 has no trouble standing out even in the wake of Pearl #1 and Scarlet #1. It’s a no-brainer for anyone who’s been a fan of Bendis and David Mack’s previous collaborations.” -Jesse

The Walking Dead #183 Review

Written by Robert Kirkman | Drawn by Charlie Adlard “The fundamental problem with The Walking Dead right now is that the series seems to be going nowhere fast, despite the wide-open canvas the current status quo provides.

That all finally seems to be changing in issue #183. This latest chapter sheds a deeper light on life in the Commonwealth and the downsides of living in the most “civilized” society in the post-post-apocalypse. This abrupt shift in tone and focus doesn’t immediately solve all the series’ woes, but it’s a definite step in the right direction.” -Jesse

Why Moon Knight is Marvel’s Most Underrated Comic

“Marvel has had a pretty strong year in 2018, with titles like The Avengers, Black Panther and Venom relaunching to impressive sales and critical acclaim. But amid all the fuss over Marvel’s Fresh Start relaunch and major crossovers like Infinity Wars, one book seems to be consistently overlooked.

Moon Knight has been one of Marvel’s most underappreciated books for years now. That’s more true than ever in 2018.” -Jesse Click here to read the full article!
