Welcome to my comic book review rundown for the week of October 20, 2021. I’m going to talk about Catwoman: Lonely City number 1, Black’s myth number 4, Beyond the breach number 4, and more!

I will start by talking about Catwoman: Lonely City problem 1. In my opinion, Cliff Chiang Catwoman: Lonely City Number 1 isn’t just a great start to a new Selina Kyle story, it’s a great start to one of the more interesting Gotham City-centric DC stories, period. I really hope the momentum will continue.

The premise dealt with Selina’s return to Gotham ten years after the tragic event of Fool’s Day (which claimed the lives of Batman, Nightwing, Joker and Gordon). Upon her release from prison, Selina entered a town she did not know. Masked vigilantes had been banned and Batpolice roamed the streets. I loved seeing an older Selina trying to make sense of her identity. She’s not yet ready to ditch the Catwoman coat. Seeing her trying to land a big job to win back her reputation made me laugh. Not only that, but there is something Batman related that she has to deal with.

With Harvey Dent running for re-election as Mayor of Gotham and keeping an eye on Selina, I can’t wait to see what Dent has planned for her and if she can avoid falling for her trap. At least she has an older Killer Croc (with hip issues) by her side.

My only complaint would be a 55 year old Selina who seems a bit too old in the art. I was surprised to learn her age in a few pages because I thought we were dealing with a Selina in her sixties.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Superman Son of Kal-El issue 4 review

Superman: Son of Kal-El Number 4

From writer Tom Taylor, Superman: Son of Kal-El Number 4 made Jon realize that Jay has superpowers. Apparently Jay got the chance to walk through danger as Shadowcat / Kate Pryde from the X Men series. Since Jay and Jon are getting closer to each other, at least it won’t be easy for a villain to harm Jay to get to Jon. So, that’s cool.

As for Jon continuing to take on his father’s many responsibilities, I think the current issue has made Jon realize that asking dictators to turn a new leaf just doesn’t work. Bendix is ​​serious about fighting Jon while following his own set of clever rules. Our young Superman needs to go through the program and find a way to defeat Bendix ASAP.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Beyond the Breach issue 4 review

Beyond the breach Number 4

The penultimate issue of Beyond the breach by writer Ed Brisson ultimately shared how dimension leap technology works. Poor Samuel didn’t even realize what he was doing using such a device until it was too late. I really liked the scene where Vanessa tried to get Samuel to say something that wasn’t going to happen. Apparently there is no way to repair the damage. However, Vanessa wanting to hear the opposite was very human of her.

I can’t wait to read how this story will end and if Vanessa’s world can even go back to what it used to be.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

The night of the ghoul number 1 review

The night of the ghoul Number 1

I was provided with a free digital copy of The night of the Ghoul number 1 for review. The opinions I have shared are my own.

From co-creators Scott Snyder (writer) and Francesco Francavilla (art), as the title suggests, this horror story is about a ghoul and how one night could determine the fate of a father and son. as they attempt to hunt down TF Merritt, the writer / director of the greatest horror movie ever made. The original footage was severely damaged in a studio fire and the film could not be released in the 1940s. Rumors of the film’s greatness persisted and Forest Inman was able to find the footage damaged. Now he’s interested in sitting down with Merritt and learning more about the full story.

I liked the way the story unfolded in the first issue. We had Inman sitting in Merritt’s bedroom talking about the movie in the present tense while stills from the movie were used to give us a bunch of flashbacks showing the horrors of the ghoul. You could tell there was something weird going on in the old house setup and I liked how the first issue didn’t drag it out. Merritt was quite enthusiastic when it came to revealing his thoughts on the establishment. Inman and his son will experience difficult times. And I can’t wait to see the rest.

Art played a pivotal role in bringing the chilling tone of the story to life. The scene with Inman’s son in the hallway was impressive. Due to the darkness of the environment, I liked the use of light sources, with people and objects having different shades of color when illuminated by a laptop screen or cell phone. The flashback sequences had panels presented on a film reel, with abrupt pauses and jumps to describe where the film had been damaged.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Black's Myth issue 4 review

Black’s myth Number 4

I was provided with a free digital copy of Black’s myth number 4 for consideration. The opinions I have shared are my own.

From writer Eric Palicki, Black’s myth number 4 served as the penultimate chapter. If you have followed my reviews of Black’s myth, you already know that I really like this series. I really hope we get to see queer werewolf private investigator Strummer and his partner Djinn Ben soon. I am a fan of the supernatural beings hiding in plain sight in the modern world.

However, Strummer’s cover appears to have been broken as she was kidnapped. Plus, the flashback to Strummer’s father was heartbreaking. She deserves a good break once she’s done with the predicament she’s stuck in. I hope Ben can find her in time.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.
