Pull List Reviews - August 19

Superman/Batman #63
As a fan of both Grodd and breaking the fourth wall, this issue definitely gets my vote for coolest cover of the week. For a book like this with rotating writers and artists, the arcs are hit and miss but this one shot issue has very cool interior art and a cool story to go along with it. It's a future tale in which Gorilla Grodd has taken over the earth and Batman is the lone resistance to his complete dominion. In the end it's supposed to showcase the importance of Superman but I think it shows the Batman in an even better light. Nice issue!
Score: 4 out of 5

Superman Annual #14
With Superman spending most of his time on New Krypton, I've been digging his stand-ins in his normal titles. This issue gives the background of Mon-El and Daxam and is actually quite touching. It makes me like Mon-El even more and keeps me wondering who gave him that cure and, more importantly... why?
Score: 4 out of 5

Justice League of America #36
More secrets behind the new Royal Flush Gang are revealed as the second (and third) string JLA members try to contain their worldwide reign of robberies. While I actually like seeing these characters get their moments in the spotlight, I still get the vibe that, with Blackest Night going on elsewhere in the DCU, this book just isn't nearly as strong as it should be. This is the JLA, folks! Let's get this mess together and start the epic battles this series is supposed to contain!
Score: 3 out of 5
