Review: Harley Quinn #45

Harley Quinn #45 finds our favorite Brooklyn bad ass on vacation from all the drama back home. Writer Sam Humphries starts his story off with a phone chat between Mamma Quinn and Harley that by the end of the issue proves that sometimes Mamma does know best. We get treated to a cute little one page of teeny tiny Harley proving that she’s always been a bad ass who likes to dish out a good smack down to those who deserve it. We then get a visit from a couple of Female Furies, sent by Granny Goodness, to rain on Harley’s parade, or so she thinks.

John Timms artwork is sleek and on point. As usual, the stylized bubble gum aesthetic works well with the off putting violence, dark story, and blood tinged mayhem. The colors Gabe Eltaeb uses are dark and surround the pop art colored Harley making sure we know the focus of the story. He varies the shade just enough so we know when it’s a flashback, a dream, or the current truth, a simple yet effective technique. It’s a really pretty comic and the artwork alone tells a very compelling, page turning story.

The issue as a whole is brilliantly written, perfectly drawn, expertly colored and doesn’t waste an inch of any panel with erroneous information, fluff, or unnecessary silliness. Everything flows into each other so perfectly that they were to have ended the comic a page before they did it would have been a complete story but I’m not at all mad that they left us with a little something to look forward to. Even the last page is perfect and pulls us further into the story. Humphries and his art crew do a great job at keeping the reader engaged and making sure that even without words you know this is a Harley story and a good one at that.

Review: Superman #38

With no other choice left, the Batman of Tomorrow brings in the Titans of Tomorrow to take on today’s Teen Titans-as the life of Superman’s son hangs in the balance! See the return of future Superman Conner Kent, Wonder Woman Cassie Sandsmark and Bart Allen Flash in the final battle of this epic crossover.

The “Sons of Tomorrow” storyline wraps up with this issue that feels both cool and falls short. Writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason bring a lot together as Tim Drake Batman, now calling himself Savior, continues his pursuit of Superboy while others either help him or attempt to help Damian and Superboy. On paper, it sounds great, but the storyline introduces way too much and leaves it hanging.

Part of that is the future Titans who play a bigger role in the story and when they eventually get to the present, there’s no pushback at all. Everyone seems to just role with whomever these folks are and there’s very little reaction that there’s these future versions of some of DC’s biggest names. Maybe that’ll come in the follow up to it all. There’s also some slip-ups like when Damian calls Drake Savior, a name that’s never uttered by Drake to him, so not quite sure what to call him.

The art though is impressive. There’s a few spreads by Sergio Davila that are amazing in how things are presented, especially when Savior or the future Titans are getting pulled through time. Davila is helped with the inks by Vicente Cifuentes and color by Gabe Eltaeb. The time travel scenes especially are impressive with the placement of characters, the 3-D aspect of the tube they’re traveling through. It’s some really solid art that stands out in the issue.

The ending is a little flat at times. There’s a lot that just happens and there’s not much reaction to it. We’ll see if there’s follow up to it but on it’s own, there’s just something missing. The overall story is solid and hopefully a prologue addresses some of my concerns but what started out great ends with a meh.

AfterShock Announces Rough Riders: Ride or Die

AfterShock Comics has announced the next volume of Rough Riders, Rough Riders: Ride or Die, the third volume of the series. Creator Adam Glass continues to write the series along with Patrick Oliffe on art, Gabe Eltaeb on color, and Sal Cipriano on lettering.

Its 1906 and Theodore Roosevelt is the sitting president when a familiar face from his past asks him once again to call upon the Rough Riders to save the world. But this time its not anarchists or aliensno, it’s something from the great beyond. Something so ancient and inherently evil that the Rough Riders will need to add to their ranks in hopes of defeating it. Who will be the newest historical figure to have the honor to call themselves a Rough Rider?

Volume 3 is a new jumping on point for those who haven’t already read the two previous and if you haven’t read those, go do that!
