Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face #2

The art and writing don’t work harmoniously and the plot is too coincidental in this 1933 story, while lacking a strong identity to push forward.

Doom Patrol #6

Following the "Blackest Night" issues is no easy task, so Giffen, Clark, and crew decide to reflect on what was. This isn't your standard navel-gazing though. It's navel-gazing, "Doom Patrol" style.
