As with Superman, I have no complaints. Just simple, straightforward super-action.

Jon Says:

This feels like a nice companion piece/complement to Tynion’s Department of Truth, and I enjoy the sort of Dragnet approach to the storytelling. That is, simply laying out the facts of the story.

Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives


Nimit Malavia Regular

Jon Says:

It’s been interesting to see life after death taking so many different forms in this series. Also, is the TV series still happening, or at least planned to happen once the strike ends? Last I’d seen, it was headed for Netflix rather than DC Universe HBO Max Max.

Jon Says:

I was flipping through the back issues and saw this one. I used to own it, and given that it was selling for less than its original price, I figured I might as well do so again.

Also, Casually Comics did a video about this issue a while back:

Jon Says:

IDK, it’s Thor. I’ve been sticking with the Thunder God pretty much since I started buying comics again. I don’t really have a lot praise to heap on the book, but I don’t have any real complaints, either. It has its highs and lows, but it’s generally pretty dependable.

Jon Says:

Apparently, they have a hard time getting the trade dress right on this. Frist issue didn’t say anything about it being a limited series, and now it’s been bumped up to 7 issues but still says 6. Interesting so far. A nice mix of original Doom Patrol-style action and post-Morrison weirdness.
