I have been reading comics since I was eleven - over a quarter-century! I love them as an art form as well as the characters, and want to see them continue to grow as a respectable medium. It's my humble honor and privilege to act as editor-in-chief of Comic Watch!

Justice League #53: Severed Survival

“Doom Metal” kicks off in Justice League #53 (Williamson, Xermanico, Farjardo Jr.), and although the art is gorgeous, the plot feels threadbare and by-the-numbers.
