Running a little late this week as I had a nice relaxing Thanksgiving. I’m going to be hitting the DC hard, next week I’m wrapping up some titles.

Adventures of the Super Sons #2, #3 and #4

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi

Pencils: Carlo Barberi

Inks: Art Thibert, Matt Santorelli

Colors: Protobunker

Letters: Rob Leigh

Cover: Dan Mora

Publisher: DC Comics

This series is a prime example of prime Silver Age crazy fun. It’s really fast paced but the characters feel fleshed out and banter between Damian and Jon is still gold. 10/10 this week’s cliffhanger looks like fun.

The Unexpected #4, #5, and #6

Writer: Steve Orlando

Artist: Cary Nord, Ronan Cliquet

Inks: Scott Hanna, Yvel Guichet

Colors: Jeromy Cox

Letters: Carlos M. Mangu

Cover: Yanick Paquette

Publisher: DC Comics

This series is even more fast paced than Super Sons with globe trotting adventures. The problem is the characters don’t feel fleshed out, and they barely interact. In fact at one point when Firebrand is in danger Neon says “ I won’t lose any more friends!” and I thought ‘ you two bicker and have had like 3 conversations you’re acquaintances/allies at best’. That said the first arc has been wrapped up and the second looks interesting. I’m giving the series 9/10 and I’ve heard it’s being canceled so I hope they use their borrowed time for character building.

New Challengers #4

Writer: Scott Snyder & Aaron Gillespie

Artist: V Ken Marion

Colors: Dinei Ribeiro

Letters: Deron Bennett

Cover: V Ken Marion

Publisher: DC Comics

Speaking of borrowed time, this is my first experience with this iteration of the Challengers, and so far I like what I see. They even took a deep dive on one of the characters and it was nice to get to know her. 10/10 I definitely have time for this.

Harley Quinn/Gossamer Special #1

Writer: Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti

Artist: Pier Brito

Colors: Paul Mounts

Letters: Dave Sharpe

Cover: Amanda Conner

Another really fun issue, not quite as over the top as the Catwoman issue, but solidly great. 10/10 bother stories are a lot of fun.
