Batman/Superman: World’s Finest # 20– Mark Waid returns to the world of “Kingdom Come” and blends this world with the Silver Age in a new arc that is sure to entertain while talking the readers back to one of DC’s most epic storylines that serve as a genuine love for the DC Universe while showing Batman and Superman’s reaction to “Earth-22” as well as finding out the fate of Thunder Boy (The last page will shock anyone **NO SPOILERS**); Bottom line? This new arc presents some great moments while displaying the adventurous storytelling that anyone would expect from this title. Another great storyline from Waid and Mora.

Jay Garrick: The Flash # 1– Jay Garrick and his daughter, The Boom have the spotlight in this new series written by beloved Flash scribe Jeremy Adams and I have to say- IT’S FANTASTIC!!
Adams clearly knows how to write a Flash story and his handling of Jay Garrick and his family is a heartwarming element that makes this issue so special; Adams and artist Diego Olortegul (doing the best work of his career) deliver a Jay Garrick story in a modern setting that pays homage to the Golden Age era that makes this a worthy JSA spin-off title and at the same time, reminding the readers why Jay Garrick is one of the Justice Society’s most legendary members.

Justice League vs Godzilla vs King Kong # 1– It’s always great when DC connects with any pop culture franchise. This particular one, however, is a complete surprise that got the attention of many comic books/monster fans but what’s really shocking?! Both Godzilla and Kong don’t have a big presence here but The Legion of Doom takes up most of this premiere issue (with Toyman being out of place) which is not a bad thing as the story gives us a good balance of heroes, villains, and monsters, I just wish the story would make good use of Godzilla and Kong; This issue never got off the ground but the premise is exciting and it looks like it will electrifying in the second issue.

The Sensational She-Hulk # 1– Marvel brings back the “Sensational” title for She-Hulk, making this her best debut. Rainbow Rowell and Andres Genolet pick up where the previous volume left off but it doesn’t feel they lost a step in their storytelling. Jen’s relationship with Jack of Hearts and her work as a lawyer from her involvement in a fight club that involves The Thing, Titania, and Volcana, shows us how offbeat Jen’s life can be. What I like about this new series is how Rowell brings such boisterous charm and humor to where she doesn’t feel the need to rehash any of the elements that John Byrne brought to this series but instead, honors it in her own way. With a creative team that shows their love for She-Hulk and the zestful way of storytelling, this new volume is worth the time.

Spine-Tingling Spider-Man # 1– This series brings us a chilling story that brings more horror than action but in a way, that makes us want to check this out as Peter Parker’s world gets turned upside down when he wakes up to find out that he has no apartment, no family and The Fantastic Four and The Avengers has no clue who he is so Pete gets caught up in a terrifying situation that he can’t punch or web his way out of it. Every page brings with it a horrifying aspect that’s disturbing but keeps your attention which really helps in elevating this title so be ready to find out what comes next.

Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
