DC Comics Review Round Up: Week of 4/25/18


Hey guys, so I read a lot of comics every week, but only review a few of them, so I thought, maybe I can knock out a bunch in one go. So, here is my first Review Round Up.

Spoilers ahead.

Week of 4/25/18

Batgirl #22
Is it worth $3.99? Yes please, can’t wait for the nest one!
By: Hope Larson, Minkyu Jung, Dan Mora
Review: 4 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘STRANGE LOOP’ part one! Pretty damn good, a rehash of a lot of things from Barbara’s life before Burnside. The big reveal at the end is none of it was true as she is about to die and reliving some craziness, but a great start to an interesting story.

Batman Beyond #19
Is it worth $3.99? Hell, yeah! NEW ROBIN!!!!
By: Dan Jurgens, Phil Hester, Bernard Chang
Review: 4 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘The Long Payback’ finale! Finally, a Robin Beyond!! Pretty fun action and solid writing. They beat up the bad guy at the end through teamwork and save the day.

Detective Comics #979
Is it worth $2.99? Eh, wait for the collection.
By: James Tynion IV, Alvaro Martinez
Review: 3 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘Batmen Eternal’ part four! I can’t wait for this story to end. I mean, it’s getting better, but it’s been a slog. Ulysses Armstrong is using brother eye to take out the team Bats. Tim Drake is, uh, there. I love Tim Drake, he’s my fav Robin… this is one of his worst storylines ever.

Flash #45
Is it worth $2.99? Sure, if you got the cash, not a bad read.
By: Joshua Williamson, Christian Duce, Barry Kitson
Review: 4 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘PERFECT STORM’ part six! Flash finally defeats Grodd using the help of everyone on team flash. Predicatable, but solid. The best part is Wally and Iris meeting at the end, awwwww!!!!!

Teen Titans #19
Is it worth $3.99? Yeah, good read.
By: Ben Percy, Scot Eaton, Dan Mora
Review: 3.5 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘The Following’ part three! Beast Boy comes to his senses and they team recues the youth of today from the new Puppeteer. Nothing new here, but lots of fun.

Titans Annual #2, $4.99
Is it worth $4.99? Nope, in fact it makes the past 3 issues of Titans not worth their coin either.
By: Dan Abnett, Tom Grummett, Paul Pelletier
Review: 2 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘Titans Apart’ finale! Well, after a mediocre build to a ridiculous finale, the Titans band together, of course, to defeat a god-like and evil Brain and his jilted lover. They put the heroes in terribly written situations and there’s at least three times when the whole thing could have been solved by a batarang from Nightwing, which he doesn’t throw… eh. And the Donna/Arsenal stuff plays out without actually playing out.

Week of 5/2/18

Batman #46
Is it worth $2.99? Oh yeah, It’s Tom King!!!
By: Tom King, Tony S. Daniel
Review: 4 out of 5 Johnny DCs

‘THE TRAVELERS’ part two! Ok, I’m not loving this story line, but it’s pretty good and Tom King hasn’t let me down before. As a wedding present Booster Gold F’d with the timeline and saved Bruce Wayne’s parents as a plan to show Batman that his life is better with them dead than alive. Terrible plan, but it is Booster Gold so it kinda works. Anyway, the timeline is more F’d up that Booster imagines, but Bruce doesn’t want to lose his parents again. Oh, and Catwoman is a straight up meowing serial killer. It’s a fun read!

Harley Loves Joker #1
Is it worth $2.99? Paul Dini returning to the Batman animated universe?! Hell yeah, man!
By: Paul Dini, Bret Blevins, Frank Cho
Review: 4 out of 5 Johnny DCs

The story is ok, Harley thinks the world is gonna fall apart… or at least their hideout. Also, there is a new Harley-esk Villian running around from Harley’s past. The good stuff is really the interaction between Harley and the Joker. It’s adorbs in a sick and unhealthy way. Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey
