Locke & Key: Omega #4
Review: Locke & Key: Omega #4
3 Comic Reviews
After three issues of characterization-dense prelude and final preparations, "Locke and Key: Omega" #4 by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez is the grand opening of the final act, as Dodge moves into the open during Senior Prom.
Polarity #1
Review: Polarity #1
3 Comic Reviews
Suffering from bi-polar disorder, artist Tim has found that living "sane" is pretty unbearable, but when he takes matters into his own hands he finds that there may be more to his insanity than originally thought in "Polarity" #1.
Snapshot #3
Review: Snapshot #3
3 Comic Reviews
"Snapshot" #3 is the pay-dirt issue that gives readers answers for all the mysteries of the previous issues of Andy Diggle and Jock's techno-thriller, making some sense of the dazzling but bewildering events of previous issues.
Dial H #11
Review: Dial H #11
3 Comic Reviews
Throwing some humor back at DC's initial "WTF Certified" cover initiative, Brian Bolland makes the cover for "Dial H" #11 a "What the Flash?" moment, giving China Mieville and Alberto Ponticelli a fine intro.
Glory #34
Review: Glory #34
3 Comic Reviews
Utterly unlike any superhero comic to come before it, Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's final issue of "Glory" is as stunningly unexpected as nearly the entire groundbreaking run.
Stormwatch #19
Review: Stormwatch #19
3 Comic Reviews
Jim Starlin and Yvel Guichet perform a reboot in "Stormwatch" #19, and if it sticks, consider myself intrigued with the blatant nature of its action as well as the direction the book is headed.
Harbinger Wars #1
Review: Harbinger Wars #1
3 Comic Reviews
"Harbinger Wars" #1 has Joshua Dysart, Duane Swierczynski, Clayton Henry, Clayton Crain, and Mico Suayan bring together plot threads from "Harbinger" and "Bloodshot," but it's less than the sum of its parts.
Earth 2 #11
Review: Earth 2 #11
3 Comic Reviews
April brings DC's gatefold cover experiment that not only returns Doctor Fate to the DC Universe, but Mister Miracle as well in the James Robinson-written, Nicola Scott-drawn "Earth 2" #11.
Batwing #19
Review: Batwing #19
3 Comic Reviews
"Batwing" #19 welcomes Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti to the writer's chairs and tie up some of the loose ends for David Zavimbe, opening the door for the Batwing of their choosing.
Age of Ultron #5
Review: Age of Ultron #5
3 Comic Reviews
"Age of Ultron" #4 from Brian Michael Bendis and Bryan Hitch is an extremely thin comic. One major plot point occurs and the rest is only concerned with moving enough characters onto the next stage to discover the shocking secret.
