DC released a pair of big books this week, Marvel had it’s share of notable titles and the year of Spawn keeps rolling into the new year. Here’s what GWW’s writers thought about Nightwing, Wastelanders: Hawkeye, Gunslinger Spawn and the other big books from this week:


WASTELANDERS: Hawkeye #1
Marvel Comics

WRITTEN BY: ETHAN SACKS
ART BY: IBRAIM ROBERSON
COLORS BY: DIJJO LIMA
LETTER’S BY: VC’S CORY PETIT

Now this is the type of story I’m looking for from these Wastelanders stories. Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 is an action-packed, self-contained story that features a kick-ass cast of Marvel legends.

Set between the original Wolverine: Old Man Logan series and after the Old Man Hawkeye series, Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 gives insight into the title character’s state of mind between these two titles, in addition to a great story that anyone familiar with Marvel can enjoy. … Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.7


DARKHOLD: SPIDER-MAN #1
Marvel Comics

WRITTEN BY: ALEX PAKNADEL
ART BY: DIO NEVES
COLORS BY: JIM CHARALAMPIDIS
LETTERS BY: CLAYTON COWLES

First of all, I have to say Darkhold Spider-Man #1’s main cover is incredible. It feels so disturbing in the most subtle ways, Spider-Man being upside down, the vibrancy of the buildings compared to the green of the background, plus the stress on his face. It’s perfect for the issue and the Darkhold horror theme. — Joe Loves Comics CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9


KANG THE CONQUEROR #5
Marvel Comics

WRITTEN BY: JACKSON LANZING AND COLLIN KELLY
ART BY: CARLOS MAGNO
COLORS BY: ESPEN GRUNDETJERN
LETTERS BY: JOE CARAMAGNA

“Does time mean nothing to Kang… or does Kang mean nothing to time?” That line from the solicit for Kang The Conqueror #5 perfectly sums up the conflict of the issue, but also this whole mini series in general. This is an issue that nicely wraps up the series, closing the loop as it were in the cycle of Kang. — Joe Loves Comics CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

AVENGERS FOREVER #1 
DC Comics

WORDS BY JASON AARON
ART BY AARON KUDER
COLOR BY  JASON KEITH
LETTERS BY VC’S CORY PITT

In Earth 818, the first Avengers failed, and the Earth turned into a wasteland. We see what life is like for that universes Avengers. This version of Tony Stark has taken on a few of the personas of the other science-based Avengers. After Tony discovers something else has drawn the attention of his pursuers, a mysterious spirit comes seeking vengeance. — Brian Villar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 4


BATMAN: ONE DARK KNIGHT #1
DC COMICS

WRITTEN AND DRAWN BY: JOCK

It doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t. DC Black Label. Batman. Jock. It just works. Put aside everything you think you have a problem with, because I had those problems to. Do we really need another Batman related Black Label book? If the story is worth telling, then yes…yes we do. The Dark Knight rules all in Gotham City, but when the lights go out and he is left alone with villains on his heels, Batman is in trouble. — Emmet DavisCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9


NIGHTWING #87
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: CHIP ZDARSKY
ART BY: JACOB PHILLIPS

As much as Nightwing is used to being the focal point of attacks, Dick Grayson enters a new realm where he is now a target. Having to mix and protect both personalities from danger. This focus allows Dick to realize that there will be a hidden danger by doing good. — Brian Villar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9

Gunsling SPAWN #3
IMAGE COMICS

WRITTEN BY: TODD MCFARLANE
ART BY: Brett Booth
INKS BY: ADELSO CORONA
COLORS BY: ANDREW DALHOUSE
LETTERS BY: TOM ORZECHOWSKI

Brett Booth and Adelso Corona are an amazing pairing of artists. You don’t need me to tell you that, but I feel compelled to share that after every issue of Gunslinger Spawn. Their work on the story’s title character — who we learn a few things about in Gunslinger Spawn #3 — is some of the best work you’ll see from any monthly comic. Which isn’t to say their work on the other characters isn’t as good, but Gunslinger Spawn has one of the best looks in all of comics. And, of course, the action — which continues to drive this series — is top-notch, as well.  — Nick Friar CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

IMAGE COMICS

WRITTEN BY: RICK REMENDER & ANDRÉ LIMA ARAÚJO
ART BY: CHRIS O’HALLORAN & RUS WOOTON
COVER ART BY: ANDRÉ LIMA ARAÚJO & CHRIS O’HALLORAN

Image Comics releases A Righteous Thirst for Vengeance #3 this week. This story by Rick Remender and André Lima Araújo, with integral inside artwork by Chris O’Halloran and Rus Wooton continues to intrigue. I’ll do my best to keep this mystery spoiler-free for all, because I want to encourage you to jump in with me if you are not already experiencing A Righteous Thirst. — Tara Woolfolk CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9
