Star Wars: The High Republic #3

Words by Cavan Scott. Art by Ario Anindito.

Cavan Scott’s writing and Ario Anindito’s artwork are exceptional. I love the details we see on Sskeer in the last panel and of Avar Kriss splitting the Dengir in two. It gives us more of an idea of what the Jedi looked like during this time period. You also get to see details on each of their lightsabers. (10/10)

Power Pack #4

Words by Ryan North. Art by Nico Leon.

The bits with the kids, their parents, and Logan perfectly encapsulate the charm of Power Pack comics as a whole and North’s writing. The more this series goes on, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect team for the Power Pack revival than North and Leon. Power Pack #4 is fun, charming, and wholly endearing, working these classic characters into a modern setting and storyline with ease. (10/10)

The Swamp Thing #1

Words by Ram V. Art by Mike Perkins.

In its first issue ‘The Swamp Thing’ takes its time introducing the series’ players and establishing a foreboding tone. The result is a slow burn of a first issue that will get under your skin and stay with you until the second chapter drops. (10/10)

BRZRKR #1

Words by Matt Kindt & Keanu Reeves. Art by Ron Garney.

BRZRKR #1 is an excellent comic, and I am thrilled to be following it. The action is creatively vicious. The story is intriguing. The interaction between Reeves’ star image and the character he is co-writing and lending his likeness to is downright fascinating. For folks on its wavelength, it’s a must-read. (9.5/10)

Nocterra #1

Words by Scott Snyder. Art by Tony S. Daniel.

Writer Scott Snyder and artist Tony S. Daniel invite us into a world where the sun sets forever and the planet has been plunged into darkness. (9/10)
