Review: Batman #43

I’m not sure if you read my review for Detective Comics last week, but I talked a bit about what separates the good comic runs to the great ones. The good comics are something you are enjoying...

Review: Detective Comics #43

Reviews can be a tricky process. There can be many variables that come into play. You can base it on pure enjoyment, or you can take yourself out of it completely and critique every little thing down...

Review: Grayson #10

I freaking love this book. It’s so well done. From the writing to the art, to the lettering – everything just seems to click so well together. I’m a sucker for a James Bond style story,...

Review: Black Canary #2

I must let you know, I have little knowledge of Black Canary. I was one of the people DC lured in with their New 52 relaunch. Yes I’ve gone back and read what you would call the...

Review: Batman #42

This issue has me sold on Snyder’s new direction. Before I read any of this arc, I was being an optimist. Trying to not let the Internet of today force me into a rage on anything that might be...

Review: Detective Comics #42

The story is much improved over last issue. Last issue, I felt like the writers did a good job disguising a boring story with how they paced it, because once I placed everything in order of it...

Review: Grayson #9

This book is just plain fun. Really, it has everything you could want in a comic. I’ve never heard someone who has actually read this book, and didn’t like it. Everyone I hear who hates...

Review: Black Canary #1

Comics like this have become a trend of their own in recent times. Comics like this have been done more over at the place next door, – over at Marvel with Hawkeye and She-Hulk – but DC...

Review: Detective Comics #41

Now, to start this off, I did enjoy this comic. I want to make that clear to you. But it didn’t live up to my expectations. The eight page preview had me very excited. I had the feeling it was...

Review: Batman #41

Hey guys! After six months off, I’m back doing reviews to the Batman Universe. The last year has been very difficult for me and my family, but hopefully things will settle down here…...

Review: Batman Eternal #36

James Tynion is still delivering solid scripts to each of his issues to Batman Eternal. I feel like the whole team is getting stronger, though. And that is so awesome for this series.   Fernando...

Review: Batman Eternal #35

Just as Kyle Higgins gets this series back on track his arc ends, and another begins. However, James Tynion keeps up the awesome pace that’s been set and keeps this book rollin’! Tynion...

Review: Gotham by Midnight #1

GET. THIS. BOOK.   I don’t know how else to say it. I love horror stories. And the one thing I may love more than horror stories, is a good crime story. What I’m saying here, is that...

Review: Batman Eternal #34

It’s kind of difficult to rate the ending to these mini-arcs, because they are left so open ended. I know that they plan on picking up these pieces later, it just makes it hard to say...

Review: Batman/Superman #16

I kinda have mixed feelings on this issue. Greg Pak has been doing an amazing job on Action Comics. But here, it irritates me because Superman is always a genuinely good guy, why Batman is a complete...

Review: Batman and Robin #36

This review might be shorter than most. And I say that because really, not much happened. We get some awesome looking art, some great splash pages. But the pacing was off, this whole issue could have...

Review: Batman Eternal #33

This issue continues the awesomeness of Kyle Higgins and Jason Fabok. These two guys seem to be in sync with each other, and they are just killing it. Unfortunately, this is Fabok’s last issue...

Review: Batman #36

Endgame continues, and I really like what’s going on… That saying, I don’t know what to expect, and I like it  I think I’m going to try to avoid reading the solicitations...

Review: Batman Eternal #32

Well, if you ask me this issue is a major improvement over what we have been getting recently. Kyle Higgins is on script duties this week, and Jason Fabok is on art. Higgins delivers one of the most...

Review: Gotham Academy #2

I’m really digging Gotham Academy right now. There is really nothing else like this book that the big two companies are putting out right now. If you need some thing different, this book is a...

Review: Batman Eternal #31

Rafael Albuquerque’s cover is so freaking cool… Let that beauty soak in for a little bit…   Alright, so before I read this issue, I kept seeing rave reviews on Twitter....

Review: Batman Eternal #30

This issue left me feeling disappointed. Here, we just read Arkham Manor last week, leading us to believe that we were going to see that Bruce was going to loose the family fortune, and his...

Review: Arkham Manor #1

Gerry Duggan is now writing Batman. This is a welcome to me after seeing what he can do on Batman #34. That was a fantastic issue, and it really made me look forward to what he would do with this...

Review: Batman Eternal #29

Ray Fawkes is back, and although he tells a good story, there are continuity problems from the previous week, as well as his own story this issue. You’ll see later in the recap, but it’s...

Review: Batman and Robin #35

This book looks freaking GORGEOUS! I think Gleason is getting better and better. I don’t know how, but he is. But I also think the darker shades of John Kalisz’s coloring make it look...

Batman Eternal #28

Of all the script writers for Eternal. I feel like Tim Seeley’s issues are the weakest. Now this issue wasn’t bad. It was actually enjoyable to read, but there were some problems. The...

Review: Batman #35

I apologize to you guys for this being so late. It’s been a real busy week for me. But in the week that I’ve let this issue simmer in my mind, the more excited I got. I saw the reaction...

Review: Detective Comics #35

Wow. This issue blew me away. I had no idea what to expect coming into this, and I was very impressed. Benjamin Percy has a wonderful two-issue story going, and it’s a great one. Reading this,...

Review: Gotham Academy #1

Gotham Academy may be the best thing to happen to DC’s New 52 line. Yes, you heard me correctly. This book is freaking awesome. If you picked this up this week, I’m going to assume you...

Review: Batman Eternal #26

As I look back over this issue, I feel… disappointed?… I don’t know. I didn’t like this issue, and I’ll get to that later. It just comes down to the point where,...
