- Dark Knights: Metal #2
- Kill or Be Killed #12
- Mister Miracle #2
- Redlands #2
I’m not sure what Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo can do in the second issue of Dark Knights: Metal since they’ve already turned everything up to 11 in issue 1. This is the sort of over-the-top, bonkers superhero comic that I love to see Snyder write: he’s not afraid to let things get a little silly while still crafting an engaging story.
Yes, I enjoyed Mister Miracle as much as everyone else, and I am particularly interested in seeing where Tom King and Mitch Gerads take these classic Kirby characters and ideas from here. Kirby’s Fourth World is a rich mythology that deserves some big, bold stories, and I think King and Gerads are on the right track.
The first issue of Redlands was about a group of witches murdering racist cops, which is about as gripping of a story hook as I’ve read in a while. Can’t wait to see what next.
