Three Batgirls, Old Man Logan and Al Simmons facing down his past? Sounds like a great week in comics, right? Here’s what GWW’s writers thought about Batgirls, Wastelanders: Wolverine, King Spawn and the other big books from this week:


WASTELANDERS: WOLVERINE #1
Marvel Comics

WRITTEN BY: STEVEN S. DEKNIGHT
ART BY: IBRAHIM MOUSTAFA
COLORS BY: NEERAJ MENON
LETTERS BY: VC’S CORY PETIT

Wastelanders: Wolverine #1 picks things up exactly where Mark Millar and Steve McNiven left off with their must-read Marvel series, Wolverine: Old Man Logan. Steven S. DeKnight and Ibrahim Moustafa’s story is only set a few days after the final events of the legendary Wolverine series. … Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 7


X-FORCE # 26
Marvel Comics

Writer: Benjamin Percy
Artist: Robert Gill
Color Artist: Guru eFX
Letterer: VC’s Joe Carmagna

If there’s one thing Tony Stark is known to do, it’s create his own monsters. Welp, turns out he’s done that yet again, which is where things get started in Captain America/Iron America #1. And the character sitting opposite Iron Man and Captain America, Veronica Eden, may seem a bit familiar to Marvel readers. She was at the center of the Falcon & Winter Soldier five-issue series. — B Ferg CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 7.9


STRANGE ACADEMY # 14
Marvel Comics

Writer: Skottie Young
Artist: Humberto Ramos
Color Artist: Edgar Delgado
Letter: VC’s Clayton Cowles

The famous Rolling Stones lyric declares that “time is on my side”. For some students at the Strange Academy a lesson in the mastery of temporal displacement leads to unsettling revelations. Issue # 14 of Strange Academy sets the stage for the next arc and next villain. One who knows the most certain way to control the future is through tomorrow’s hope. The children. — B Ferg CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

BATGIRLS #1
DC Comics

Written BY: BECKY CLOONAN & MICHAEL W. CONRAD
ART BY: JORGE CORONA
COLORS BY: SARAH STERN
LETTERS BY: BECCA CAREY

Following the events of Future State, Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown, and Cassandra Cain are on the run and laying low. With Brown and Cain being framed for the Clock Tower destruction, they need to work together to clear their names and recover Oracle from Seer. — Brian Villar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.5


ROBIN AND BATMAN #2
DC COMICS

WRITTEN BY: JEFF LEMIRE
ART AND COLORS BY: DUSTIN NGUYEN
LETTERS BY: STEVE WANDS

Ho hum. Bor….BAM!!!!! Robin and Batman #2 of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s Robin and Batman was more surprising and better story-wise than the first issue. It takes the relationship that was built in Robin and Batman #1 and adds more pieces, more layers. In the end we see the same grumpy Batman, with a wide eyed Robin willing to learn. In doing so the optimism and hope that could have filled Dick’s eyes? It’s gone now. There is a mission at hand. — Emmet DavisCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

NEWBURN #2
Image Comics

WRITTEN BY: CHIP ZDARSKY
ART BY: JACOB PHILLIPS

Newburn gets the job done, but is he someone you should throw your lot in with? That’s the central focus of this issue, as Chip Zdarsky reveals more about the character’s history without really revealing too much about the character’s history. (Yep, you read that right.) — Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9.4

KING SPAWN #5
IMAGE COMICS

WRITTEN BY: SEAN LEWIS WITH TODD MCFARLANE
ART BY: JAVI FERNANDEZ
COLORS BY: FCO PLASCENCIA
LETTERS BY: ANDWORLD DESIGN

Plain and simple: King Spawn #5 is further affirmation this is a can’t-miss series. Sean Lewis has a great understanding of Todd McFarlane’s legendary character — that was made clear early on. But what’s more impressive is how he’s been able to tell a story new and old Spawn readers can invest in.  — Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9.2
