Every comic you've read in 2020

Recommended Posts

Daredevil #16 (2020): Like he was with Spider-Man, Chip Zdarsky knows Daredevil in that real old school way. I've been digging his run consistently since it began. In this latest issue, there's a lot of the Netflix show in here, but with the circumstances of the storyline and the fact that the show ended a year ago, it's free from feeling forced or contrived. Jorge Fornes easily jumps from King's Batman to this book.

Miles Morales Spider-Man ##14: This book is almost as fun but the dialogue is a bit more hit or miss. But I'm now used to an older Miles and I'm loving the balance between his crime fighting life and his student life.

Issues: 2

Immortal Hulk #26-#29: Still the best "superhero" comic out right now. I love a Bruce Banner that's arrogantly had it with humanity.

Amazing Spider-Man #37 (2020): Spencer continues to deliver a solid Peter Parker. I was beginning to fade on the tie-in issues to all the Marvel stuff going on, especially the Doom stuff, but this is a back to basics in his story and I'm back in for it.

Batman #86 (2020): Decent start to James Tynion IV's run, with some of the best Tony Daniel artwork I've seen in a while. He's a less engaging, B-grade Jim Lee for me, but he's still a solid artist. I don't like House Negro Lucius Fox tho, but Tynion didn't invent that.

Batman and the Outsiders #9: I want to like Bryan Edward Hill as a writer more than I can, because he's a Cassandra Cain fan and his discussions about writing all seem well informed. But his output rarely goes above mediocre for me. It's hardly ever bad, but it still hovers around stock and archetypal. So this was decent, but I wish it were better.

Young Justice #12 (2020): There's way too much dialogue in this issue to feel like you're drawn into caring what everyone is saying from panel to panel. It's ridiculous. I'm still digging this team but Bendis' infamous verbosity is swallowing this series whole. There's hardly a speck of space to breathe.

Issues: 10

It's the whole tech-whiz business that started with Batman Begins. I liked it alright for those movies, but in order to wholesale steal it for the comics, it's sapped Lucius of all of his agency. For years he was the sharpest guy in Gotham who didn't have anything to do with Batman. He made Wayne Enterprises into of the the DCU's most powerful companies, and he had his own family and host of problems with them. Now he's this bow-tie wearing subservient one-dimensional character who'll do whatever Bruce needs of him, and now knows Batman's identity. I feel that it's a borderline offensive turn for what used to be a really good character, but DC Comics in general doesn't have the patience for nuance when it comes to their supporting characters anymore.

Superman #19: Kinda not sure I believe Perry White's reaction here. Now that everyone knows Clark Kent is Superman, so many of Lois and Clark's Daily Planet stories would be called into question. But whatever, it's an okay issue.
