Constantine #5- Sigh! Constantine just can’t seem to catch a break. After a bloody good issue last month, the series run smack into the “Trinity War” crossover. The result, as you might suspect, is less than stellar. First off, please pick up Justice League Dark #22 before reading this or it won’t make sense. Seeing John Constantine with the power of Shazam is fun while it lasted but seriously…who read Constantine for a superhero slugfest?
Batman/Superman #2- #1 was a confusing mess but unfortunately, writer Greg Pak picks things up in this issue. The story comes into being as we discovered that Batman and Superman have entered into a new world and had been fighting their doppelgangers. The inner monologues of all 4 Clarks and Bruces keep it flowing and more importantly, help focused the story so that we actually know what is going on. Lois, Catwoman and Wonder Woman all made an appearance in this issue with Lois and Selena giving the story a degree of humor. The art by Jae Lee is as solid as always and I especially like his portrayal of Catwoman. That was one sexy cat! I wasn't too hot about this series after #1 but with this issue, I discover I may have been too hasty in my judgement. With the creative team come out with more issues like this, this series may have some life indeed.
