While I really think the subject matter is top notch, the execution doesn’t really allow you to fully experience the story.

Nightwing #26

Art by Javier Fernandez and Chris Sotomayor

Despite an early lack of proper pacing and some shaky visuals, the issue really comes into its own late in the game.  There’s some great character work throughout and some stunning pencils at times, and the sting at the end completely changes the narrative in the entire Nightwing series up to this point.

Art by Bryan Hitch, and Alex Sinclair

A brand new pack of flat characters can’t rescue Justice League’s latest trek through time.

Injustice 2 #7

Art by Dale Keown

Despite some curious lapses of judgment on Batman’s part, this book has it all: romance, cherished friendships, family squabbles, and one big super-brawl.

Bane: Conquest #4

Art by Graham Nolan and Gregory Wright

Dixon has had difficulty presenting valid character motivations for the actions that the characters take.  Add to that the fact that Dixon seems to have forgotten about elements that he himself established within the character, and it just provides a very uneven read.
