Ruin of Thieves: A Brigand’s Story #4

Writer: Ram V

Artist: Sumit Kumar

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Publisher: Action Comics

Synopsis: The Brigands wrap up their 4 book saga in this action packed finale that finds our heroes continuing on their mission to find The Myros Pendelum. Can everything be salvaged by a rescue? 

Review:  As the finale to the series, this one isn’t good as a stand-alone. When I say this, I’m not saying the story isn’t good. It is. It’s filled with great action and Loads of adventure. But, like all great series, it needs to be with its bookmates, otherwise it gets confusing. The artwork is beautiful and the story is an adventure.  The shocking ending is definitely worth the read.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Letterer: Jack Morelli

Publisher: Jon Goldwater

Synopsis: The Saga continues as the Batman villains, led by the notorious Joker continue to try and take over Riverdale. They have the adults under their control. What can they do to take over ALL of Riverdale? 

Review: Archie Comics would have to go WAY beyond the beaten path before they could get an even slightly negative review from me. This 3rd Volume in the Archie Meets Batman saga continues to stay true to form. This includes Jughead’s need for hamburgers, which has always made me love this character. This is an obvious stepping stone in the series as we see the villains scrambling to set down their trap for the Riverdale teens...

Will they be able to avoid old flames? Get set for a promising bro-venture. 

Review: The cover gave me pause at first.  “A Dad Dating Simulator”. Ugh! Is this a kissing book? Was my first thought. Instead I began an immediately interesting story about two former college roommates and their night out. You can immediately feel the bond between the two men. A short search showed there are Youtube videos this comic line is based on...
