- Product Review: Justice League Tarot
This package had a few sell points for me. First, I’m a bit of a sucker for art cards. Back in the 90’s Marvel had their original card sets that featured new artwork by the likes of Arthur Adams or Jim Lee and so on. There were the Marvel masterworks sets that were entirely painted, sometimes by one artist or a team or a range of talented creators.

Art Ops, Joe Golem, & Batman and Robin Eternal
Art Ops #1- This first issue is c0onceptully interesting and well executed, but for whatever reason it was missing the hook I needed to care to return. I read this first issue weeks ago and am just now finally getting around to talking about it and as I’m going through it again it feels a little more like a chore than talking about something I’m excited to follow up on and share. I’m sure it’s probably different if you’re a long term Mike Allred fan.

Black Magick & Uncanny X-Men
Black Magick #1– Very few books can immediately offer a strong sense of tone and atmosphere, so when one does so as immediately as this first issue did I tend to take notice. Rucka gives you enough to build a few assumptions on, but otherwise he very carefully crafts a story that allows the reader to infer a number of plot and character questions. It’s great because it starts the process of asking more questions and wanting more answers, but not in a hollow superficial way.
