Donny Cates is back to writing Crossover, a new Deathstroke title — Deathstroke Inc. — has begun and DIE has come to an end. Here’s what GWW’s writers thought about the big books from this week:


DIE #20
Image Comics

Written by: Kieron Gillen
Art by: Stephanie Hans
LETTERS BY: Clayton Cowles

The end is upon us. Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans have taken readers on a wild ride for nearly three years, creating high expectations for the series finale. DIE #20 did not disappoint.

This series has been heavy since Day 1, and Hans’ letter to readers at the end of the issue encapsulates why that’s been the case. Now, DIE #20’s finale does get a bit confusing at times. But, Gillen makes sure to . . .  — Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9

Crossover #8
Image Comics

WRITTEN BY: DONNY CATES
ART BY: GEOFF SHAW
COLORS BY: DEE CUNNIFFE
LETTERS BY: JOHN J.HILL

Crossover #8 returns to Ellie’s story. After the brilliant “filler” issue we are finally back to the main arc, main story, and one kick-ass protagonist Ellipses. They have escaped the chaos of the dome thanks largely to Ryan, but a new threat appears, obviously, some amazing characters which I am not going to divulge.Jim CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Deathstroke Inc. #1
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: JOSHUA WILLIAMSON
ART BY: HOWARD PORTER
COLORS BY: HI-FI
LETTERS BY: STEVE WANDS

It’s been too long since readers had an ongoing Deathstroke title. Although, it was probably best to provide some space between Christopher Priest’s awesome run and Deathstroke Inc. The series-opening issue indicates there are definitely differences between the two titles. But, Deathstroke Inc. is not at all removing itself from Priest’s run. Quite the opposite actually.  — Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

BATMAN VS. BIGBY! A WOLF IN GOTHAM #1
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: BILL WILLINGHAM
ART BY: BRIAN LEVEL & JAY LEISTEN
COLORS BY: LEE LOUGHRIDGE
COVER ART BY: YANICK PAQUETTE
LETTERS BY: STEVE WANDS

In this kickoff of the new Batman series, where the Bat Family faces off with Bigby, apparent werewolf, we are treated to several things. I’m sorry, did I say Bigby? I meant “Bigby!” because this guy doesn’t even get a traditional title colon. He’s got a legit exclamation point. There’s building suspense for a peek at the wolf, which is my way of saying . . .TaraLovesNoir CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Resistance: Uprising #6
AWA/Upshot Studios

Written by: J. Michael Straczynski
Art by: C.P Smith
Colors by: Lee Louthridge

Explosive, unexpected and absolutely enthralling. The Resistance Uprising #6 is a tour de force of storytelling that wrapped up its current arc in the best way possible. The Resistance: Uprising #6 did more than just conclude what has been an excellent story, it also set up the future of this universe to be something very special.   — Joe Gilmore CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

“The weapon you need, where you need it, when you need it-she`ll get it”. A fetching slogan for the main protagonist Joanna Tan AKA Gun Honey the new graphic novel from TITAN Comics.

TRANSFORMERS: HALLOWEEN SPECIAL (REVIEW)
IDW Publishing

Written by: Dan Watters
Art by: Beth McGuire-Smith
Colors by: Nahuel Ruiz
Letter by: Jake M. Wood

What scares a Transformer? Flesh and the fragility that accompanies it. In Transformers Halloween, Starscream investigates a rumor only to discover an organic creature with a connection to Cybertron. Furthermore there is a connection Starscream’s past that forces him to question his personal motivations and the benefit to Cybertron. As a result, Transformers Halloween by Dan Watters is a psychological tale more than a ghost story. Percy Waelchl CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW
