Review: Batman #46

This issue feels like it more happened in it than usual… Maybe I’m imagining that, but that’s how it felt. Bruce takes a huge step in his life, Gordon takes a stand for himself and...

Review: Detective Comics #46

Last month, I had a lot of fun with Tomasi and Takara’s first issue – this month… was a bit disappointing. It’s not that it wasn’t well told, drawn, or colored. It’s...

Review: Grayson #13

First of all, I want to thank Bill for covering last month’s issue for me. It was an amazing issue, and he did an amazing review on short notice, and I 100% agree – that issue deserved a...

Review: Black Canary #5

There comes a certain phase in our life that we all hit  – where we feel like an outcast from our family. It can take various forms and levels; from being completely shut out from everyone in form...

Review: Batman #45

If you ask me, this issue of Superheavy was super-awesome. I know we are kinda in the middle of the story arc, but everything just seemed to come together in a beautiful way. Snyder really shows us...

Review: Detective Comics #45

So when DC announced that Peter Tomasi was taking over Detective Comics, I got pretty excited (after grieving over Manapul and Buccellatto, that is). And when I heard that Marcio Takara was doing the...

Review: Grayson Annual #2

We get another one-shot story in this annual told by Tim Seeley (series regular), so that was nice with it somewhat continuing the main story without being necessary to pick up. I am starting to...

Review: Batman Annual #4

So often, it seems as though DC through a Snyder’s name on these annuals so that they sell more. I guess they forget that it’s a Batman book, and it’s going to sell anyway. So, you...

Review: Black Canary #4

This issue did have me kinda nervous, with Annie Wu not being the artist on it. But Pia Guerra did a fantastic job in her place. Her storytelling was very good, and her art was similar enough it...

Review: Batman #44

Honestly, there are times when writing a review can begin to feel like a chore. For instance, you can’t just enjoy the comic, and come on here and say, “Hey everyone! Go buy this book....

Review: Detective Comics #44

I hate to be so negative, but I’m just glad this is over. This series got so far away from what it was so very quickly. Everything that made it a really good comic before was kind of dropped,...

Review: Grayson #11

Well King and Seeley’s first multi-part story has come to an end. And it was amazing. I’m so glad that King closed out the story with the writing credit, he seems to be the stronger...

Review: Black Canary #3

There are times, at this point, where I look back on my review of issue one and go, “…it wasn’t that good.” And I truly hate that about first issues. You really have no idea...

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...
