The Brightest Day tie-ins have been hit and miss as is usually the case with many tie-in books to major events. Justice League Generation Lost has been one of the surprise tie-in hits. Issue #14 took it to another level with another intriguing alternate future storyline that may be a result of Maxwell Lord’s actions in the present. Judd Winick has made this book his own ever since Keith Giffen left the series. I’m very curious to see where this particular issue plays into the next.

Had Generation Lost not come out of nowhere and throw a curveball at me, Detective Comics #871 would have received top honors for the week. This was the debut of Scott Snyder and Jock’s first arc and takes the Dark Knight back to the basics in detective work. Snyder is already showing a good feel for characterization in this book, particularly with Dick Grayson and Commissioner Gordan. Jock’s work didn’t knock me on the floor, but it was acceptable to compliment Snyder’s gritty writing style.

Uncanny X-Force #2 continues Rick Remender’s off-the-wall storytelling of a new covert ops X-Force group that is looking to take out the latest incarnation of Apocalypse. Character development is the stand-out here that was severely lacking in the previous X-Force book. And just seeing where they take “Kid Apocalypse” next in his indoctrination is definitely intriguing.

And then there’s Batwoman #0. Nothing more than a primer for J.H. Williams’ upcoming book in February, but an exceptionally good primer nonetheless. If you want to get up to speed on all things Kate Kane, this is a good start. I’d also recommend Greg Rucka’s awesome arc with Williams on art here as well.

Sign off on your thoughts on these books and anything else going on, peeps!
