Comic Review: Justice League of America Rebirth #1

 

index2Justice League of America Rebirth #1 (DC Comics)

Spinning out of the pages of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, Justice League Of America Rebirth features one of the strangest teams to ever bear the name “Justice League. I mean, who would’ve thought we’d ever see Batman and Lobo on the same team? But Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis have done it, and added a whole new aspect to the stellar DC Rebirth relaunch.

Much of Justice League of America Rebirth is what you would expect: Batman, along with Killer Frost, makes his way through the DC Universe and convinces various people to join his new team. Interested in forming a “League of Mortals”, Batman wants to specifically make this League a team of underdogs who are looking to make a difference. It’s certainly a different take on idea of the Justice League, and when the team features characters like Black Canary, The Ray, and even Lobo, you’re certainly in for an interesting time. However, those jumping into JLA Rebirth without reading any of the prior character-specific one-shots may find themselves a little lost, as there’s very little back-story into a majority of our characters here. Plus, the story is really just “getting the team together”. There’s no threat they have to face just yet, only getting along.

Despite a lackluster plot, Steve Orlando shows that the real strength of Justice League of America will be the team, which definitely looks to be one of the more unique Justice Leagues. The interplay between these characters is in full effect from the first moments they share a page, with Lobo being the clear standout. The Main Man is back after a lackluster “re-invention” of the character, and his brash attitude is a great contrast to Batman. Fans of the character should absolutely grab this book, as he steals every scene he’s in.

On the art side of things, you can’t do any better than Ivan Reis. Reis’ style has graced many awesome DC titles, and Justice League Rebirth is another great showcase for his skills as an artist. The various members of the team all have a unique style, and there isn’t a bad design in the bunch.

As the biggest title in the “second half” of DC Rebirth, Justice League of America presents a really interesting and fun dynamic for fans of the these characters. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see this book start to gain more traction than the regular Justice League title. You can see Superman and Aquaman on a team any old time, but Lobo and The Atom? Well, that’s something truly strange and special.

Comic Review: Kingpin #1

Kingpin #1 (Marvel Comics) index

Last week I reviewed Bullseye, so it’s only fitting that I review the next installment of Marvel’s “Running With The Devil” imprint, Kingpin. Of all of these books, this was the one I was most intrigued with, since the Civil War II miniseries featuring the character was one of the few great tie-ins for that event. With rising star Matthew Rosenberg writing the book, I had pretty high hopes for this series, and so far, I’m pretty intrigued.

Kingpin presents the titular character in a way that I wasn’t expecting. Instead of focusing on Wilson Fisk’s criminal empire, Matthew Rosenberg’s script focuses more on Fisk trying to convince disgraced journalist Sarah Dewey to pen his biography. He showers her with gifts and attention, and while Dewey slowly starts to warm up to him, things start occurring that make her think that Wilson Fisk isn’t as removed from his criminal ways as he lets on. But he’s doing things to protect her, is that a bad thing?

This take on Wilson Fisk is one we’ve seen before, most recently in the Netflix Daredevil series, but Matthew Rosenberg finds interesting ways to make it work and seem fresh again. By focusing more on Dewey, it allows us to see Fisk through someone else’s eyes, and show how charming Fisk can be when he needs to be. Rosenberg had a similar framing device in his Civil War II: Kingpin miniseries, and it’s good to see that trend continue here. It adds to the myth of the character to get implications of how far his empire spreads, as opposed to seeing it play out before us.

Ben Torres is the artist for this series, and his style fits the tone of the book perfectly. An interesting mash up of Frank Miller and Eduardo Risso, Torres’ is able to capture the brutal and dark world that Dewey is being drawn into and make it vibrant and engrossing. His Wilson Fisk is intimidating, but not the cartoonish hulking giant that we’ve seen in the past, and while there isn’t a lot of action in this opening issue, the few moments that are here are handled exceptionally well.

If you’re looking for a crime book set in the world of superheroes, then Kingpin will be the book to grab. Rosenberg and Torres are crafting a murky tale that has shades of crime stories you’ve seen before, but everything here is so well done that you don’t mind if it feels a little repetitive. I know it’s a cliché line, but I kind of have to use it: for crime fans, Kingpin is an offer you can’t refuse.

“Welcome to Riverdale

My name is Jon, and I’m pretty sure I’m addicted to The CW’s Riverdale.

Yes, I know, it’s weird that a thirty-year-old guy would be interested in this show to begin with, and I’m surprised as anyone to be gushing as much as I am, but here we are.

I’ll admit that my viewing of the pilot episode was for purely selfish reasons. After reading an interview with Riverdale show runner (and Archie Comics CCO) Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in which he stated “if Riverdale is successful we’ll absolutely look at other Archie properties to adapt, with Sabrina being the first one”, I knew that I’d be checking the show out, if only to get Sabrina a new show.  Now, you all know my love for Sabrina, so if I had to endure watching a couple hours of teen drama to get a new Sabrina show with the premise of her awesome Chilling Adventures comic, that was a small price to pay.

But after watching the first episode, I was hooked. Sure, the first few minutes were tough to get through, and the show is using every single teen drama stereotype in the book, but I found myself really wanting to see where the show went after I finished the episode. This take on Archie, while corny at times, is also pretty self-aware and playing the teen TV drama tropes well, mainly because the show runners have worked Archie’s world into the “Teen Drama” categories.  Archie is the every teen, Betty is the girl madly in love with him that’s “just a friend”, Veronica is the new girl in town who’s trying to turn over a new leaf, Kevin Keller is the gay best friend to the girls, and Jughead is the sullen teen.  It sounds ridiculous, but it somehow works really, really well.

Part of what makes Riverdale so intriguing is that it’s not trying to completely modernize Archie and his friends. While they are in a modern day setting, there are plenty of throwback aspects of the show that add to the uniqueness of the show. Pop’s Diner is still very much a classic 50’s diner, and there’s a strange throwback style to some of the outfits the characters wear, like the crown shape beanie Jughead’s known for. Plus the fact that this season centers on the murder of Cheryl Blossom’s brother Jason gives the show a very Twin Peaks vibe, which according to Sacasa, was intentional.  There’s also a little bit of Welcome To Nightvale in the show as well. You just know that something is lurking just underneath the surface in the town of Riverdale, and Jason’s death is going to be the first domino to fall that reveals everyone’s ugly secrets.

It’s this tone and theme that really makes Riverdale stick out. Yes, there’s still the love triangle between Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but it’s set against the backdrop of a town that is brimming with secrets. Plus, Luke Perry (yes, the one from 90210) is pretty damn fantastic as Archie’s dad. Yes, even characters like Archie’s dad get the CW treatment here (just wait until you see Ms. Grundy).  Plus the newcomers playing Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead are all really solid, and show promise for any future projects.

Look, I know Riverdale is probably a hard sell for a lot of you, but I must be honest, it’s pretty damn entertaining. The typical teenage drama you’ve seen before in The O.C, One Tree Hill, Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210 and on and on is very apparent here, but if the tropes and stereotypes are done well? Well, that means that the show runners know what they are doing. Plus it’s another sign that Archie Comics, one of the most underrated publishers out there for new and daring ideas, is capable of still being relevant.  After reigniting their comic line with Afterlife With Archie and the Mark Waid reboot, Riverdale is the next logical step for the company. And if it gets some new blood into a comic shop, that’s even better.

So far, Riverdale has become the biggest surprise of the year for me. I never in a million years thought that I’d be tuning in to the second episode, and the third episode, and actively looking forward to the next episode, and even debated about where the show is going and who is behind Jason Blossom’s murder with some people. That’s pretty damn insane. Really the only thing that could make Riverdale any better is if Sabrina showed up at some point to set up a spin off.

Oh what’s that? She is?
