I read two Superman trades recently:

Image

I wasn't very impressed. Everything relies on the huge continuity change of Superman having a son. Take that away and nothing special to read. Other people have written better Superman stories without major continuity changes.

3.3 out of 5 for Superman Rebirth vol 1.

Image

This was very good. Max Landis writes s great Superman. Mixed with great art throughout.

4.4 out of 5 for Superman American Alien.

Currently reading the Moon Knight TPB by Lemire & Smallwood. This the second Moon Knight trade that I have read, and I am definitely digging it.

A little while ago I read

Image

I'd give Dr Strange vol 1 4.3 out of 5. I don't even particularly like Dr Strange, but this was a lot of fun. Lots of marvel cameos as well I really enjoyed.

Also I read

Image

Pretty good, though not as good as The two stories Haden Blackmann did for DarkHorse a few years back (Ghost Prison & The Lost Command). Great artwork by Larroca.

I'd give Darth Vader vol1 4.2 out of 5.

I'll be buying more of both of these runs.

Sithra: Kingdom of the Air and Sithrah: Propositions - I really like the artistic style in these books. The books look gorgeous and the panel layouts are dynamic. They read like a cross between traditional comics and children's storybooks. There's not a ton of dialogue, but the art easily conveys everything. I saw Propositions on Kickstarter awhile ago, but didn't have the money at the time to back it. Volume 3 went up on Kickstarter a week or two ago and I decided to jump in and pickup the first two volumes to get caught up.

I read, and enjoyed his work on reMIND vol. 1 years ago. Glad to see he's still making comics.

He quit his full-time DreamWorks job in 2014 to focus solely on comics.

So I read the new Bad Company: First Casualties tpb by Peter Milligan and Rufus Dayglo originally published in 2000AD. It has very good artwork. The story is ok, nothing particularly special. However, I have come to realise the point Milligan is making is totally obvious to me, but in a world where people happily consume fake news we do need to be constantly reminded of the lies that some times get told. So while I'm not the target audience (I've seen this all before), it is a worthwhile endeavour.
