This Week in Comics: The Boy Wonder gets a piggyback ride

If you’re new to comics, Super Sons is a low barrier to entry. And if you’re not new, you probably already know what I’m talking about—it’s super fun, super easy to read, and superbly drawn. #4 closes out the first story this week, and while it didn’t quite reach the heights of the first three installments, it was a good end to an awesome introductory arc. If you haven’t been reading, see if you can scoop up these first four—you won’t be sorry.

Batman #23 was the most incredible Batman book I’ve read in years—up until the last page. It’s still amazing, and I’ll probably like it even more now that I’m not shocked by the end. The Flash #22 made for an underwhelming conclusion to an underwhelming crossover, and Justice League is still fighting hard for its spot at the bottom of my pile. How was your week in comics?

Batman #23

This story has a lot going on, but even though many of the elements are quite disparate from one another, I found them to fit together quite beautifully.

Batwoman #3

We get the promise of some major threats on the horizon, but for now Kate still feels like she’s reacting rather than acting.

The Flash #22

Ultimately, this comic is little more than a teaser for the bigger story at hand.

Come for the carnage stay for the cuddles.

Injustice 2 #2

Art by Bruno Redondo and Alejandro Sanchez

It wouldn’t be Injustice without all this varied and sundry drama and Tom Taylor delivers it with a cherry on top!

Justice League #21

Art by Nick Bradshaw and Alex Sinclair

Too obsessed with its own short history, Justice League slumps through another issue with lackluster artwork and poor dialogue.

Nightwing #21

Art by Brad Walker, Drew Hennessy, and Chris Sotomayor

The writing is a bit rough, consisting of both great ideas and grating dialogue.

Super Sons #4

Art by Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sanchez

It’s as much a comedic adventure as it is a straight-up superhero book, blending witty dialogue and exciting action to create a truly great comic

Teen Titans #8

Art by Phil Jimenez and Alex Sinclair

“The Lazarus Contract” is, unfortunately, shaping up to be a miss.

Trinity #9

Art by Bill Sienkiewicz

Other than some mindblowing art, there isn’t too much to talk about in Trinity #9
