Best Shots Review: HEROES IN CRISIS #9

It’s not clear at the end of Heroes in Crisis #9 — which is also the end of Tom King’s much-discussed exploration of superhero trauma — what exactly the point was. Maybe that’s the point, that there’s never an end to having to work through the things you’ve done because of the things that have happened to you, but today’s finale feels so strangely weightless that it’s hard to trust any interpretation of King’s slogging script.

WWE's LANA Outlines Plans to Make New Comic Day RUSEV DAY Dark Country

C.J. Perry (WWE's Lana) and Miroslav Barnyashev (WWE's Rusev) have performed for the WWE for nearly a decade, including showing a version of their real lives in E's Total Divas. But now with the announcement of their first comic book series Dark Country, the pair are teaming up with writer Jason Starr (Punisher Max, The Range) to make every Wednesday Rusev Day at your friendly neighborhood comic shop.


From its plotting to its worldbuilding down to even its lettering choices, Super Sons: The PolarShield Project is a mess on a worrying number of levels. Younger markets, particularly middle grade, are woefully underserved by DC and Marvel, but The PolarShield Project will do DC no favors in making in-roads here - it’s hard to believe this is coming from the same publisher that delivered the smash hit DC Super Hero Girls franchise or even Mera: Tidebreaker, a genuinely good OGN that also hits bookstands this week from DC Ink.

Pro Wrestling and One Trans Guy’s Path to Self-Confidence

This has been an exhausting WrestleMania week, filled to the brim with some of the best wrestling the world has to offer and culminating for me with Shinsuke Nakamura’s debut on WWE Smackdown. Thousands of casual wrestling fans will leave this stadium with his name and the passionate wailing of violinist Lee England, Jr.’s performance of “The Rising Sun” etched forever in their memories. Amidst the roar of the crowd, this is the most effortlessly happy I’ve been as a trans man in a long time.

The Mack Gets His Title Shot When Lucha Underground Returns

Junkrat seems to be one of the more underrated characters from the smash hit fighting game, but it’s easy to see the appeal for a wrestler like the Mack. A clever and chaotic thief, Junkrat’s design is a wiry man who seems to have rebuilt himself with prosthetic limbs during the course of his rough living in the Australian Outback. At first glance he may not seem like the ideal character to go up against flashier, more famous Overwatch staples like D.Va or McCree, but watching competitive Junkr
