Wonder Woman #29

“Heart of the Amazon” beats on in this, the fourth part of the story. For the most part this arc has only gotten better with each issue and even though writer Shea Fontana had the unenviable task of following a beloved Wonder Woman series by Greg Rucka, she has had fun with the character. Fontana…

Redneck #5

As a central Texas dweller, I would probably be driven outta the region if I didn’t read the writing of fellow Texan Donny Cates. Admittedly, I was late to the party, but God Country is one of my favorite titles of 2017 and I nearly missed it! I couldn’t let Redneck slip past me like…

Batman #29

The never ending “War of Jokes and Riddles” rambles on with this week’s fifth installment and, I don’t know about you all, but I’m very tired…It’s not Batman fatigue really, it’s this “war” that just isn’t the “right” Batman for me now as a fan. With Metal usurping my attention span for Bat-adventures and Mister Miracle…

Wonder Woman #28

Half way through Shea Fontana’s Wonder Woman arc, “Heart of the Amazon”, and Diana is in the midst of evil forces playing a treacherous game – hiring killers to hunt her down. Will the warrior princess be victorious? Ultimately, I’m thinking yes…this isn’t a character changing book, but it’s a fun read nonetheless. What is…

Batman #28

The sun is down, my toddler is asleep, and my Advil PMs have yet to kick in – it must be time for another episode of “The War of Jokes and Riddles”. Writer Tom King’s fourth chapter is here, and what is one to make of this latest round of Joker vs. Riddler? Spoilers ahead!…

Wonder Woman #27

At the end of issue #26 Wonder Woman happens upon a [REVERSE SPOILER ALERT] bomb hidden underneath a table. She had been attempting to set aside her warrior spirit for one evening out at a wedding when a little girl playing hide and seek leads her to an explosive device. In what felt like an…

Batman #27

The next Bat-chapter in the “The War of Jokes and Riddles” has arrived and it’s an INTERLUDE??!?! Writer Tom King’s Bat-opus is divisive with fans, to say the least, and this side story, “The Ballad of Kite Man, Part One” is unlikely to convert the disgruntled. I’m hanging on because for whatever twisted reason, I’m…

Wild Storm #6

Forecasters this week are calling for potentially dangerous weather ahead of 2017’s sixth Wild Storm installment. Warren Ellis’ re-imagining of the WildStorm universe continues his one of a kind storytelling and complex conspiracy-techno-sci-fi story that, for me, usually raises more questions than it answers. I question everything and just assume I’ll need to go back…

Wonder Woman #26

What a year 2017 has been for fans of Diana Prince! Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins, at the movies and of course, in comics, Greg Rucka, have been telling great Wonder Woman stories recently and it appears writer Shea Fontana and artist Mirka Andolfo are joining in the Amazonian fun. What is this all about? ‘HEART…

Batman #26

“WO-JAR” slow down there! That’s right, “The War of Jokes and Riddles” part two is here and we are treated to another piece of the ghastly puzzle that is the best Tom King Batman arc yet. We’re entering a bloody and terrifying civil war. There are lines being drawn. Joker and Riddler are carving up…
