Panelology is a weekly podcast about comics. We talk about current books, what we're looking forward to, and how to get into reading comics in the first place.

Grayson: Spiral’s End (Marvel Comics, 2015; #17-20, Annual #3)

  • With the origins of Spyral revealed, Dick finds himself at war with Spyral, Leviathan, The Syndicate, and Checkmate.
  • His primary objective? Help Helena stay alive through all the double-crosses.
  • The last of Spyral’s secrets come to light as Dick grapples with making the world forget him.
  • Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly take over for Tim Seeley and Tom King, wrapping up the story with a more traditional, straightforward narrative structure than much of the series has relied on.
  • There’s a fairly large art team in this volume, but most of the pages ceom from Roge Antonio, who handles the volume’s constant action well.

Grayson has been a lot of fun, and if you’re a fan of Dick, then you’ll probably enjoy it.
