Bill Sienkiewicz drew this comic book. That’s all you should need to know, but if you’re still wondering then, yes, he still knows how to do that job better than almost anyone else who has ever tried. That he’s returning to New Mutants and Warlock, in particular, is the icing on the cake for X-Men fans. This is a one-shot, so Chris Claremont isn’t able to play to biggest strengths, which is long, slow-burn storytelling. But he does try his best to get as much inot this single issue as possible, packing a year’s worth of story into War Children. It never feels bogged down or slow because Claremont knows how to play to his artist’s strengths. The plot feels like a “yes and” exercise as Claremont and Sienkiewicz reminisce about their original New Mutants run. That makes which makes the issue a rollicking gothic medley. Seeing these talents working on new comics is rare these days. No one should miss the chance to see them in action together. … [Read more...] about Comic Book Reviews for This Week: 9/25/2019

Doomsday Clock referenced the creation of Earth-5G in its final pages, suggesting that the 5G characters might, like the Golden Age characters were in the Silver Age, eventually be relegated to their own corner of the DC multiverse when things went back to relative normal, presumably with the most popular being carried over somehow as well. The death of Alfred Pennyworth in Batman was also apparently a key moment in the move toward 5G, and the ties between the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe and the post-Generation Zero world (in particular the return of Wally West's kids) suggests that a full reversal of the policy would be unlikely.
