Review: Robins #1

Robins #1

Take all the Robins and put them in a series together and you’ve get a pretty damn entertaining comic. Robins #1 brings together five individuals who have held the title for a debut that has some entertaining action and some reflection. What does it mean to be a Robin? Is it a good thing? It definitely puts a target on you.

Written by Tim Seeley, Robins #1 at times feels like service to fans, and that’s not a bad thing. Getting this group of characters together is going to be fun, and the comic shows exactly that. Each Robin has had such a unique personality. Each has delivered a version of the character that has been special and we can see here some of exactly that. Dick, Jason, Tim, Stephanie, and Damian have all held the same title but each of their experiences has been so different.

Seeley nails why each version of Robin has been so different and interesting. Each of these characters are larger than life in their own ways and are so different. Dick comes off as the seasoned veteran, Jason the hot head, Tim the eager prodigy, Stephanie the mixed results, and Damian the arrogant one. Robins #1 has them reflecting on their time as the hero and more importantly questioning if it was a good experience or the right experience at all. There’s something so refreshing to see these heroes question if they made the right decisions and how those decisions have impacted them. It’s different and fun in a lot of ways. We the readers have our own opinions about each of them but it’s interesting to hear what they think about their own time in the tights.

The art by Baldemar Rivas is pretty solid. Each Robin is very identifiable and the comic does a great job of balancing its action with its quieter moments. It’s great art when people sitting around a table can be as exciting as when their suited up and fighting bad guys. The color by Romulo Fajardo Jr. pops with a style that feels like it emphasizes each character in their own way with a slight anime quality about it. Steve Wands‘ lettering packs in a lot, especially when the group sits down to chat.

Robins #1 is an interesting and fun debut that fans of the characters will enjoy. It does a great job of allowing each character’s personality to really shine through showing off how truly unique each one is. This is one that leans towards the Robin fans but it’s done in a way that everyone can find something to enjoy.

Review: Suicide Squad: King Shark #2

Suicide Squad: King Shark #2

Suicide Squad: King Shark #2 continues to be a funny, gory, and occasionally sexy good time from Tim Seeley, Scott Kolins, and John Kalisz. This book feels a lot like a quirky late-1980s DC comic thanks to appearances of supporting cast members from Animal Man, Swamp Thing, and of course, the titular Suicide Squad, but Seeley brings a modern sense of humor with one of the most annoying songs in recent memory acting as both a running gag and something driving the plot. The same philosophy extends to Kolins’ sturdy, almost deadpan figures that are an inch away from erupting into total violence. Kalisz also eschews the fancy digital effects and goes for bold, trippy tones especially any time mystical power or energy is involved. King Shark is a silly book, but it’s well-crafted and has some great world-building too.

Like in many of his previous DC efforts, like Nightwing and Grayson, Seeley excels at both excavating old concepts and characters from previous DC Comics as well as fleshing his own additions to this vast multiverse. The entire plot of Suicide Squad: King Shark revolves around a tournament of representatives of different species from cockroaches and sea worms to sharks and humans to see which one is the prime evolutionary force on the planet. It’s also connected to the idea of the Red and Parliament of Limbs from Jeff Lemire’s run on Animal Man, but Tim Seeley and Kolins give it a reality TV/shonen manga/pro wrestling flair. It’s fun to watch anthropomorphic animals beat the shit out of each other while King Shark and our POV character, Shawn Tsang (Aka my favorite character from Seeley’s Nightwing run.) work out their anger issues and try to stay one step ahead of Amanda Waller, who wants King Shark to kill for her not his species.

Tim Seeley, Scott Kolins, and Kalisz are quite creative with the fight scenes in Suicide Squad: King Shark #2 and make them weirder, and in many cases, grosser than your usual superhero fisticuffs. John Kalisz colors the hell out of some oozing fluids, and Seeley doesn’t make King Shark’s matchups a cake walk even if he isn’t fighting any recognizable DC characters. However, the highly problematic B’wana Beast is the host and in full sleazy drama-stirring mode. (The fact that Mr. Beast is problematic is commented on by the characters in a quick witted line from Shawn.) This combination of struggles at the tournament plus Shawn (And by extension, the reader) rooting for Man King to ensure that humanity isn’t shark or cockroach bait increases the tension as well as Amanda Waller and a team of seriously cool characters ready to retrieve King Shark from what she perceives as nonsense. Her interactions with King Shark’s divine father are seriously chilling as she doesn’t back down from a character who gets special big lettering font from Wes Abbott because he’s so powerful.

Suicide Squad: King Shark #2 is truly a delight. It’s a deep dive into some seriously underappreciated DC characters, both past and present, with a sense of humor and a brutal approach to fight scenes. Tim Seeley and Scott Kolins also find the gentle humanity in King Shark, and most of the time you’re laughing with and not at him and feeling bad at how he’s manipulated by so many forces, including his father, Amanda Waller, and Shawn Tsang. Maybe, one day he’ll find a human that he can actually trust, but it probably won’t be in this miniseries among the Real Housewives, er, Furries of the DC Multiverse.
