‘Aquaman #45’ (review) at Forces of Geek

Tough to write this review, as I really, really loved what was going on in this comic, but I was wondering, “Where is my Aquaman?”

We’re merely three issues in to DeConnick’s run, but I want Arthur to know he is the King of Atlantis already!  He’s still got amnesia or face blindness or some such ailment that is making him forget he’s part of the Justice League?

‘Harley Quinn: Harley Loves Joker #2’ (review) at Forces of Geek

Paul Dini returns to his creation, Harley Quinn, in a two issue mini-series, Harley Loves Joker. Issue #2 is on shelves this week but it makes sense to review the story as a whole, it is likely your store will still have issue #1 or download both on the DC Comics app.
