The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Black Canary #2 Review)

In case I haven’t made it quite obvious enough, I love it when a comic book’s art does more than simply depict the events of the script. For me, the real magic of comics is in seeing a relationship between text and art, where each feeds into and elevates the other. Even within the context of these weekly reviews of mine, there are a number of examples of issues (Gotham by Midnight, Doctor Fate, Action Comics #40, etc.) in which the marriage of the script and the visuals is what makes the book stand out among its peers. Black Canary certainly falls into this category.

The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Justice League United #11 Review)

Ever since its “sneak peek”, I have been eagerly awaiting the return of Justice League United. In its first two arcs, the title managed to capture the excitement and adventure of the big-scale storytelling that characterized the Silver Age. “The Infinitus Saga” teamed the JLU up with the Legion of Super-Heroes and the team looked poised to be an unstoppable cosmic force for good. But post-Convergence, something has happened.

The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Batman Beyond #2 Review)

The opening arc of Dan Jurgens and Bernard Chang’s Batman Beyond is moving at break-neck pace, but what strikes me about this second issue is how well choreographed the writing and artwork are. Each supports and fills in for the other – as is meant to be the case in comics – in such a way that the book manages both to focus on the narrative development and action beats as well as the leviathan task of world-building a future that is unlike any in the history of the character. The concurrent goals form a powerful storytelling engine, accelerating at an alarming speed.
