Desk Cleaning happens
The Flash Vol. 2: Speed of Darkness (Rebirth) - Joshua Williamson

So I've got a new work PC that required a cleanup of my desk, which cascaded a little and I found a few "I should read that" books, including a couple of graphic novels, which are quick reads for me, so they're getting read.

 

This was an interesting series of stories with different Flash and Kid Flash and some villains and a lovely moment with Kid Flash ensuring that Barry and Iris have a peaceful date.

 

Enjoyable vignettes in the life of the Flash.

Superwoman Vol. 1: Who Killed Superwoman... Superwoman Vol. 1: Who Killed Superwoman? (Rebirth) - Phil Jimenez,Phil Jimenez

A good attempt that just doesn't quite get it done. This is one of DC's second tier books for me. Still it's worth checking out

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

This was a very good rebirth/reboot of Wonder Woman. It introduces a character who I would consider Wonder Woman's arch-nemesis, although their relationship is very complicated, Cheetah aka Barbara Minerva. Also, Steve Trevor plays a big role. I loved the artwork. While nice, the cover art doesn't live up to the wonderful illustration inside the book. Greg Rucka is an excellent writer, and his skills are beautifully displayed in this volume. His understanding of what makes the characters tick is evident. He gets Diana, Steve and Barbara. He also examines our society in which the lives of girls and women are disregarded as not valuable, especially if they don't serve some usefulness. Barbara's character arc shows the damage that a misogynistic culture can do to a person. I also liked how this volume delves into the Greek mythology aspects of Diana's heritage. Her father is not who she thought he was. She also realizes that the Amazons have kept secrets from her. This leads to her sense of disillusionment. Also this book explores Diana's relationship with Steve. Although I not-so-secretly ship Diana and Bruce, WonderBat, I like her and Steve together. I think the problem is that Steve is a soldier and is entrenched in the human world, whereas Diana is immortal and pretty much a demigoddess, which puts a time limit on their relationship, and they're still trying to figure all out that out. I'm pretty happy with this first book in the Rebirth series of Diana. This is the best Wonder Woman comic I've read so far. Looking forward to reading more.

Batman Vol. 2: I Am Suicide (Rebirth) - Mikel Janin,Tom King,David Finch

Tom King may be the best writer working for the Big 2 at the moment. If he's writing a book, you need to be reading it.  It's that simple.
