Comics this week

Birthright #5- I shall admit; after the stunning debut and a good #2, I though Birthright has been spinning it's wheel for the past 2 issues. This issue made me a believer again. An excellent issue that not only extend the modern story, it also extended on the flashback. And the ending, when we the potential extended family of the "hero"; superb!

The Multiversity Guidebook #1- Given that Multiversity is a series that span the entirety of the DC Multiverse, a guidebook is more than welcome. However The Multiversity Guidebook #1 is much more than that; it’s a superb story within a story issue where writer Grant Morrison slowly but surely ties his series together. Not only that, Morrison gives us a map to the whole of the 52 and a short summary of the worlds minus 7 of them which are under “mystery”. The team of artists on this issue also knocks it out of the park with some beautiful work. Everything from Kamandi’s world to Little Gotham to the guidebook itself was superbly done. The one big knock against Multiversity has been that the issues don’t have much connection with each other; that issue has been in the Guidebook. Buy this!
