The long-awaited start of the newest Tom Taylor DC Comics series, Superman: Son of Kal-El, is over. But Taylor didn’t have the only must-read comic of the week. Here are the other books that caught the eyes of GWW’s writers:


Superman: Son of Kal-El #1
DC Comics

Written by: Tom Taylor
Art by: John Timms
Colors by: Gabe Eltaeb
Letters: Dave Sharpe

As part of DC’s Future State line at the start of 2021, Superman’s son Jon Kent took up the mantle of Superman for Metropolis and Earth. Now with the launch of Tom Taylor’s new series, Superman: Son of Kal-El, Jon Kent takes center stage in the current continuity and delivers a modern and engaging twist on Superman’s role as a hero. — Percy WaelchlCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.5


Batman: Reptillian #2
DC Comics

WRITTEN BY: GARTH ENNIS
ART BY: LIAM SHARP
LETTERS BY: ROB STEEN

All this talk of this new menace terrorizing Gotham, and the only thing I can think about is the way Liam Sharp is drawing Batman. Garth Ennis has been great through the first two issues of Batman: Reptilian #2, but Sharp’s work has been something else. — Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9.0


Sweet Paprika # 1
Image Comics

Written by: Mirka Andolfo
Art by: Mirka Andolfo
Colors: Simon Tessuto
Letterer: Fabio Amelia

Sugar and spice and everything nice. If you listen to the children’s poem, those are the ingredients that make up a little girl. After reading Image Comics‘ and Mirka Andolfo’s new comic, I now know how to make a hell of a successful business woman. All it takes is one simple ingredient. Sweet Paprika. — B FergCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

DUNE BLOOD OF THE SARDAUKAR #1
BOOM! STUDIOS

WRITTEN BY: BRIAN HERBERT & KEVIN J. ANDERSON
ART BY: ADAM GORHAM
COLORS BY: PATRICIO DELPECHE
LETTERS BY: ED DUKESHIRE

Dune authors and lore keepers Brian Herbert (original author Frank Herbert’s son) and Kevin J. Anderson expanded the world of Dune for over 20 years. They have created a world and mythos rich and dense and Blood of the Sardaukar is no different. Based on a 2019 short story, the one-shot tale takes place at a pivotal moment for the House of Atreides as the young Paul Atreides, and future Maud’Dib, flees his family estate setting in motion the plot of the original Dune novel. While it does create a tight action packed story that expands the world of Dune, this title does little to create a connection for new readers interested in the Dune franchise and the upcoming movie. — Percy WaelchlCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 7.0


BRZRKR #4
BOOM! Studios

WRITTEN BY: KEANU REEVES AND MATT KINDT
ART BY: RON GARNEY
COLORS BY: BILL CRABTREE
LETTERS BY: CLEM ROBINS

This series has been frustrating. There’s no need to sugarcoat it or try to make a grander statement. Between Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt, it seemed like BRZRKR was a guaranteed hit when it was first announced. But through BRZRKR #4, the pair has not lived up to the hype. — Nick FriarCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #18
BOOM! STUDIOS

Written by: James Tynion IV
Art by: Werther Dell’Edera
Colors by: Miquel Muerto
Letters by: Andworld Design

Once again, the tandem of James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera continues to be one of the best 1-2 punches in the comics world. Tynion, as always, delivers great storytelling while Dell’Edera continues to put forth visually stunning storytelling of his own. Something Is Killing The Children #18 is a prime example of two creators working in perfect harmony to deliver yet another fantastic issue.  — Joseph Gilmore CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 9.0


GOOD LUCK #2
BOOM! Studios

WRITTEN BY: MATTHEW ERMAN
ILLUSTRATED BY: STEFANO SIMEONE
LETTERED BY: MIKE FIORENTINO

It takes more than well wishes to succeed at most anything. Planning and practice are paramount to almost all pursuits in life and sometimes even that isn’t enough. So as Team Hilde prepares for what is officially titled Field Test #001-Laka all members of the Bureau of Luck and Probability are a bit on edge. As Doctor Diaphanous puts it, the hope of the world rests on the shoulders of these four young “Unfortunates”. Good Luck, they’re definitely gonna need it. — B FergCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW

Score: 8.5
