Jace and Rocky from Comic Boom talk in depth about the DC books for the week of May 11, 2021. We have a giant-sized celebration of Asian creators and characters that clocks in at 100 pages. A new limited series that supposedly tells the last story of the Justice League kicks off with incredible art. The third issue of Batman Urban Legends continues to give us an amazing Red Hood story and the Grifter story is just as good if not better. Rorschach #8 deepens the mystery and we can’t wait to see how the creative team brings it all together. Superman #31 has a VERY appropriate line from Jon Kent we hope DC takes to heart even if the rest of the story is only ok. Future State Gotham leaves a lot to be desired and as of the first issue we recommend you skip it. The second issue of Batman the Detective sets up some big events for the series that could tie into Bruce’s past. Wonder Woman #772 gives us more of the crossover between the Norse and Greek mythologies and we feel it is working very well. Finally the Joker title continues to star Jim Gordon and we couldn’t be happier with how it has played out so far, superb.
