Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey Vol. 1: Who Is Oracle? (Rebirth) (Batgirl and the Birds of Prey (Rebirth)) - Shawna Benson, Julie Benson, Claire Roe

Honesty I couldn't get past the partial reboot continuity problems with Barbara and her friends.  I feel like the comic book guy.


If you've been enjoying Burnside-era Batgirl, give this a look. You may really like it.

Batman: Night of the Monster Men (Rebirth) - Tom King, Steve Orlando, Tim Seeley, James Tynion IV, Riley Rossmo

A real missed opportunity. This could have been a fun, crazy monster story, but it just never seems to find the proper rhythm.

Winter Tide - Ruthanna Emrys

This is a remarkably poignant story told from the perspective of a survival of a brutal US Military massacre. And who just happens to be a worshiper of the Old Ones. This is perhaps the best of the recent Lovecraftian works.

Cyborg Vol. 1: The Imitation Of Life (Rebirth) (Cyborg (Rebirth)) - John Semper, Will Conrad, Paul Pelletier

My least favorite of the Rebirth books so far. This really has the sturm und drang of the nu52. Not for me.

Deathstroke (2016-) Vol. 1: The Professional - Christopher Priest, Carlo Pagulayan, Mark Morales, James Bennett, Belardino Brabo, Jason Paz

Well done,but ultimately unable to get over problems at the core of the character. YMMV.

The Flintstones Vol. 1 - Mark Russell, Steve Pugh

This easily makes up for the failed promises of the other Hanna Barbera adaptations.  Brilliant social satire. It's a Stone Age Family for today and it works!

Batgirl Vol. 1: Beyond Burnside (Rebirth) - Hope Larson, Rafael Albuquerque

Competent, but not particularly compelling. For committed fans only

James Bond, Vol. 2: Eidolon - Warren Ellis, Jason Masters

Ellis' Bond is the best Bond. Read it already!

The Damned, Vol. 1: Three Days Dead - Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt

It just doesn't stand out against the glut of Noir tinged UF released in the last 10 years or so.  YMMV.

Lucifer, Volume 2: Father Lucifer - Holly Black, Lee Garbett

A continuity heavy deep dive into the politics of Hell. Your enjoyment may depend on your knowledge of backstory.

Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West (Rebirth) - Dan Abnett, Brett Booth

This is a fun Bronze age style story that is really all about moving pieces around for future stories. Fun but it won't change your life.

Agents of Dreamland - CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan

A rich story of Lovecraftian dread mixed with post X-files paranoia. Recommended.

Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies (Rebirth) - Liam Sharpe, Greg Rucka

Rucka is cleaning up after the Nu52, and getting ready to tell some new stories.  It looks promising.

Kings of the Wyld (The Band) - Nicholas Eames

Swords monsters and treasure oh my! Smart, hilarious and fun. Highly recommended.

Superman: Action Comics Vol. 1: Path Of Doom (Rebirth) - Dan Jurgens, Tyler Kirkham, Patrick Zircher

Definitely in the top tier of Rebirth books that I've read. A very entertaining cape book. Recommended.

Dr. Potter's Medicine Show - Eric Scott Fischl

Very dark story about evil alchemists roaming 19th century America. Side shows the hard way. Well written, but not for everyone.
