Comics Round-up 01.09.2013

Batgirl 23

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for September.

“After two fairly good story arcs, Justice League Dark heads downhill with the addition of writer Ray Fawkes even as JMS’ second installment of Wonder Woman: Odyssey impresses as much as the first. Greg Rucka continues to impress as usual with the second and third issues of his creator-owned project with Image, and I dip back into the Marvel Now universe with Young Avengers with a somewhat tepid first arc.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

An awesome new arc for Batgirl gets underway, Captain America reaches its penultimate issue in Dimension Z, and Chris Roberson’s Masks delivers an impressive but flawed union of Dynamite Comic’s strongest heroes.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 16.07.2013

Death of Superman

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for July.

“In a recent full-on run with various DC titles, it has been quite a mixed bag, in a good way. Doomsday proved to be a technically great story that I mostly enjoyed while Milligan’s first arc on Justice League Dark had its great moments as well. The strongest title here is definitely Gail Simone’s breakout hit (as far as I am concerned) The Movement which continues from strength to strength.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

With Marvel, Young Avengers and Daredevil: Dark Nights both get off to an incredible start, while at DC, Snyder proves that he can write two-issue arcs as well as year-long epics, and Kyle Higgins gives Nightwing a fantastic new direction.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
