Sometimes, the staff at Graphic Policy read more comics than we’re able to get reviewed. When that happens you’ll see a weekly feature compiling short reviews from the staff of the comics, or graphic novels, we just didn’t get a chance to write a full review for. These are Graphic Policy’s Mini Reviews.
Batman #9 (DC) Now that Night Of The Monster Men is over, I’m glad we get to the story that was hinted at toward the end of I Am Gotham, even if the first issue was a little less memorable than I’d have liked. Not a bad issue, but it doesn’t quite reach great status. Overall: 7 Recommendation: Read
Black Hammer #4 (Dark Horse) This is quite possibly one of the best series that Jeff Lemire is currently writing. It is just fantastic story about former superheroes somehow stranded in a place not of their…

I am still catching my breath from that finale.
Who would have guessed that a Civil War II side book about the Kingpin that only had a four issue run would be one of my favorite Marvel series of 2016? I will put this book up there with anything Marvel has put out this year. That is including the excellent series, The Vision. I know that is a high accolade, but Civil War II: Kingpin #4 was that good. Too often, the final issue of a miniseries finds a way to coast to the end, and just give us a conclusion. I have read a few series like this lately, and have come away disappointed after being so excited with the first few issues. This book doesn’t have that problem. After the intense fight between The Punisher and Kingpin in the last issue, it was going to be hard…

Matt Kindt is a massive talent. He is one of the few people in the industry where I feel his art matches his writing. I think the best thing I can call someone in this industry is original, and Matt Kindt is just that. Dept. H may not be his first, or even his most recognized work, but it is one of my favorites.
The story follows Mia, a special investigator hired to uncover a possible sabotage taking place at a deep-sea research station. The series is a “whodunit” featuring a cast of characters with outward traits ranging from kind and helpful to cold and suspicious. Like any good mystery, it is becoming apparent that things aren’t always what they seem. The book does a good job at playing with your preconceived notions, and keeping you distracted. Just when I feel like I have something figured out, disaster rears its ugly…

I swear that is dust in my eye.
When I saw the team of Mark Millar and Greg Capullo, I immediately knew I wanted this book, and I can safely say it doesn’t disappoint one bit. Reborn #1 asks the questions that many of us do. Where do we go when we die? What is the meaning of life? Does anything matter beyond what we see with our own eyes? I can say this book answers some of those questions, but also leaves us with more than we started with.
This book goes through a lot of emotions. We follow the story through the aging eyes and memories of Bonnie Black. She tells us of how much she has lost, but also loved in life. It is an interesting perspective to be in the mind of someone who is scared they are in the final hours of their life…
