DC Comics had a few notable first issues. The Eltarian War rages on at BOOM! Studios. King Spawn keeps getting better, and that still doesn’t cover everything from this week in comics! Here’s what GWW’s writers thought about the big books from this week:


WONDER WOMAN: EVOLUTION #1
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: STEPHANIE PHILLIPS
PENCILS BY: MIKE HAWTHORNE
INKS BY: ADRIANO DI BENEDETTO
COLORS BY: JORDIE BELLAIRE
LETTERS BY: TOM NAPOLITANO

Phillips magnificently sets up Diana’s trial for humanity. From the beginning, we see the villain of this issue paralleled with Diana. She makes Diana question herself. What is her purpose for being a hero? What makes her better than these villains? Does she show that she’s better through her actions, or do we only see it in her motivations? Wonder Woman is trying to steel herself throughout the entire issue, but once she meets up with a certain friend, we see her walls come down. As Diana’s walls come down, I’m excited to see if there will even be any left! friendlynbhdbiCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.5


Robins #1
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: TIM SEELEY
ART BY: BALDEMAR RIVAS
COLORS BY: ROMULO FAJARDO JR.
LETTERS BY: STEVE WANDS

From the jump, I loved the concept for Robins. All of Batman’s former Robins facing someone who claims to have also been Robin? Not to mention, this alleged ex-Robin claims to have been the original? Sounds like a small-scale Court of Owls concept — someone who’s always existed, yet no one knows about. Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 7.5


THE NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE #6
DC Comics

Written by: James Tynion IV
Art by: Alvaro Martinez Bueno
Colors by: Jordie Bellaire
Letters by: Andworld Design

What is it they say? Absence makes the heart grow fonder? Well we are about to find out how true that  is. We’ll now have to wait six months for Nice House On The Lake to return, and I’ve got to say, it’s going to be hard — but maybe not as hard as I once thought.  — Joseph Gilmore CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.5


King Spawn #4
IMAGE COMICS

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

Throughout the first three issues of King Spawn, I’ve wondered in the back of my mind about where this story takes place in the greater story of Spawn. It’s never taken away from King Spawn’s story, but the two appeared to be running parallel.

King Spawn #4 was the first issue where I didn’t think that for one second during my reading, which should be all you need to know.  While… — Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

SCORE: 9.5

NOT ALL ROBOTS #4
AWA/Upshot Studios

WRITTEN BY: MARK RUSSELL
ART BY: MIKE DIODATO

Without having seen how this series ends yet, this series has the making of one that will be well regarded, but an issue too long. Had the events of Not All Robots #4 taken place in the issue prior, this series would still be moving at a perfect pace. This issue continues to build on the anxiety of humanity while pushing the robots to the brink. — Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.7

Power Rangers #13
BOOM! Studios

WRITTEN BY: RYAN PARROTT
ART BY: FRANCESCO MORTARINO
COLORS BY: RAUL ANGULO
LETTERS BY: ED DUKESHIRE

Both Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers have slowly been building to the next great MMPR event from BOOM, The Eltarian War. Power Rangers #13 is the second issue of the event, the first under this title. Things are off to a great start. — Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9.2


Gun Honey Issue 3

NOT ALL ROBOTS #4
Titan Comics

Written by: Charles Ardai
Art by: Ang Hor Kheng
Colors by: Asifur Rahman
Letters by: David leach

Gun Honey #3 picks up exactly where you would expect, with the lovely Miss Tan in hot water. After her successful last mission (yes, it did not work out the way it should have, but she did finish the assignment the client contracted her for) Joanna is back in front of the hard-as-nails self-proclaimed iron-maiden of the government. Yes, that lovely lady that looks like someone’s granny but probably isn’t. — JimCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9


DOCTOR WHO: EMPIRE OF THE WOLF #1
Titan Comics

Written by: Jody Houser
Art by: Roberta Ingranata
Colors by: Warnia K. Sahadewa
Letters by: Richard Starkings

Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf from Titan Comics is a time-twisting tale featuring four familiar Doctor faces and two Rose Tylers. It will have you flipping through the pages to see what happens. Then, it’s time for another run-through to get the details that writer Jody Houser and illustrator Roberta Ingranata left for fans. Doctor Who is known for cameo appearances, and this issue doesn’t disappoint. This ensemble is cast, and now the story unfolds. — Heather E. HoustonCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

SCORE: 9.3
