DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 31

Still behind, but starting to catch up.  It helped that there were a lot of good comics this week.  The first two I read were both 4.5s.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five.

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead, although I try to avoid them.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 27

Here’s the next batch of reviews, hot from the oven.  Enjoy their gooey goodness.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five.  From here on out, I’m only going to update the leaderboard once a month – at the end – to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain (excluding reviewed one-shots and mini-series). 

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead, although I try to avoid them.

The Krypton Awards

 

Having read ALL of the New 52 comics to date, I figured I was well-placed to present some awards based on the first six months of the relaunch.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Parts 24 and 25

 

Since there was only one ongoing this week and I was disastrously behind with last week’s reviews, I’ve just rolled them together in one article.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five.  From here on out, I’m only going to update the leaderboard once a month – at the end – to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain (excluding reviewed one-shots and mini-series).

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead, although I try to avoid them.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 18

Once again – with gusto – here are my New 52 One Sentence Reviews.

Each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board (averaging the scores of each title) to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain.

I have also reviewed the mini-series issues but they aren’t included in the leaderboard.

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead (although I try to avoid them).

Review: The Shade #4

The Shade #4, cover by Tony Harris

One staple of James Robinson’s legendary Starman was “Times Past,” a set of stand-alone stories diving into the history of the Starman legacy and Opal City.  It was a way to tell a fun adventure story, introduce some fascinating character traits, or deepen the mythology he was patiently building without using too much tedious exposition.  So imagine my surprise and delight when I opened this month’s The Shade #4 and found myself enthralled by the Shade’s fantastic adventures in 1944, an excellent stand-alone adventure that deepens our understanding of the main plot while telling its own story and welcoming new readers.
