This is the last issue of the first arc of A&A, or Archer and Armstrong, Part Deux, or whatever you want to call it. Aaaand…while I don’t mind some of David Lafuente’s covers for Valiant…I’m not so keen in having him on interior pencil duties. But next month the writer and artist of Battlepug, Mike Norton will take the penciling reins for Archer and Faith’s first date!
Look, I still haven’t read the Batman: Rebirth one-shot…I mean, I just got my books a few days back. That, and the combined forces of Twitter and the Internet have me feeling like I’ve already read it, without cracking the cover. Such is the way of things. Having seen Mikel Janin’s work on Justice League Dark and Grayson, I can def say he is the real (albeit underrated) deal.
Descender is back, y’all! And for those who forgot, Tim-22 is still totes bad news. WC Fields once said people should “never work with animals or children,” but he should have added “…robots, or any combination of these three.” Our protagonist’s doppelganger is proof enough of such.
Look, I thoroughly enjoyed Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s Green Arrow, but I’m optimistic for Rebirth’s new take. Writer Ben Percy absolutely kicked ass with the run leading up to Rebirth, and absolutely deserved to stay on the book (and rightfully did), and he’s accompanied by the talented Juan Ferreyra (Colder, Alien Fire and Stone: Prometheus) on pencils.
Finally, Wrath of the Eternal Warrior continues its weird Matrix/Tron simulation, where Sovereign attempts to discover the secrets to Gilad Anni-Padda’s…uhh…resiliency.
