Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen: Who Killed Jimmy Olsen?

This dazzlingly unpredictable, pleasantly surreal celebration of Silver Age comics is one of the most purely enjoyable, unashamedly fun, and funny mainstream releases in years. [An LJ 2020 Best Book.]

Wonder Woman: Dead Earth

At a glance, it may seem as though Johnson’s thrilling battle sequences are the main draw here, but he quickly establishes his profound understanding of what makes Wonder Woman a unique and enduring character. Grand adventure infused with real emotion

Batman. Vol. 2: Curse of the White Knight

This sequel expands on the already massive scope of its predecessor and builds to a genuinely exciting final twist that will have readers clamoring for future installments.


Superman Smashes the Klan

Yang and Gurihuru (Avatar: The Last Airbender-- The Promise Omnibus) spin a thrilling and timely, all-ages adventure that explores the immigrant experience, bigotry, and internalized racism through a range of perspectives that includes an African American police inspector and a young Klan member forced to confront his family’s legacy of hatred.


Naomi: Season One

An exciting mystery and coming-of-age superhero origin story introducing an original heroine and a cliff-hanger ending sure to have readers eager for future installments. [Previewed in Ingrid Bohnenkamp’s “Mass Appeal,” LJ 6/19.]


A successfully scary and thrilling vision of the apocalypse, and a surprisingly moving examination of how beacons of hope cope with the realization that the end is nigh. Collects the entire best-selling miniseries.

Doomsday Clock: Part 1

A tense and gripping homage to Watchmen’s dissection of costumed crime fighters that also seems interested in probing the limits of its ongoing influence. A must for series followers, and a boon for DC fans seeking next chapters in its ever-expanding universe.

Batman: Damned

Bermejo’s richly painted vision of Gotham City is brilliantly gritty and terrifying, and Azzarello’s script is ambitious and complex if occasionally hard to follow, as mood and tone tend to trump narrative drive.

Heroes in Crisis

Mann (Gambit: King of Thieves; The Complete Collection) renders dynamic action and somber moments of conversation and reflection equally well, while the narrative by King (Mister Miracle) explores some fascinating corners of many classic characters’ psyches and the toll that war takes on even the mightiest warriors with nuance and sensitivity. Unfortunately, the plot feels increasingly padded as it progresses, and the bafflingly complicated solution to the mystery is far from satisfying. Collects the entire nine-issue limited series.
