Review: Harley Quinn #15

Harley Quinn the superhero! That’s one of the fun themes bounced around in Harley Quinn #15, another entertaining entry in the franchise. The action kicks off 150 years in the future where Devani,...

Review: Nightwing #16

For lovers of the Damian Wayne/Dick Grayson dynamic, Nightwing #16 supplies it in spades. For me as a reader, this was an issue I’ve been waiting for, a further exploration of one of the most...

Review: Harley Quinn #14

Harley Quinn #14 is an entertaining and quite nutty little issue that in the wake of the “fake Joker” arc the series probably needed. We start with a nice bit of set up with a group who seek to...

Review: Nightwing #15

Nightwing #15 is a great example of how to do a modern romance issue inside a superhero tale. We don’t see enough (or hardly any) of them these days, and Even in a Dream (the issue title) is a nice...

Review: Harley Quinn #13

Harley Quinn #13 is a powerful, entertaining issue that basically features Harley interrogating this would be Joker who she accosted after Red Tool beat him to a pulp (and then she had a go) last...

Review: Nightwing #14

Nightwing #14 wraps up the Bludhaven arc, which has dealt with Nightwing’s arrival in the city of Bludhaven, in an effort to find some certainty for his place in the world and realign where the...

Review: Harley Quinn #12

Picking up straight on from the previous issue, the Joker has come to Coney Island, due for a midday meeting with his ex, Harley. As seen in the prior issue, Red Tool set Harley’s clock back so she...

Review: Nightwing #13

The action in Nightwing #13 kicks off gritty and grimy on a rainy night in Bludhaven, with Nightwing and the gang of the Run-offs fresh off the battle against Orca. With Forsyth dead, and one of...

Review: Harley Quinn #11

So here we are, Joker comes to visit Harley. Not a trick, not an imposter, this is the Joker. (Although if I recall correctly there are apparently three Jokers running around the DCU, so who knows,...

Review: Nightwing #12

Picking up from the events of the previous issue, Detective Svobodai is at the graffiti-strewn crime scene of a Bludhaven murder. Nightwing turns up on the scene, and discovers that the victim was a...

Review: Harley Quinn #10

Harley sure loves Christmas and Santa! That’s the basic message of this bizarre and entertaining issue of Harley Quinn, which see’s Harley and her friend Red Tool go to the department store to...

Review: Nightwing #11

The Nightwing title has certainly flipped the script, the dark conflicted vibe of the first few issues involving Talon replaced by a more colorful and fun vibe as Nightwing begins his adventures in...

Review: Harley Quinn #9

Springing out of the events of the “Bahamas Holiday Issue,” which both delighted and saddened Harley/Ivy shippers, Harley Quinn #9 turns inward, beginning by depicting a series of...

Review: Nightwing #10

Nightwing #10 flips the script for the series and to my mind is the strongest entry up to this point. While the previous issues featured a morally compromised Nightwing operating in conjunction with...

Review: Harley Quinn #8

This is probably my favorite issue of Harley to date and the issue went with the old adage of leaving them wanting more. From the very first page we are aware the long heeled trip to the Bahamas is...

Review: Nightwing #9

The first impression Nightwing #9 is that it definitely aims for the title “delightful filler.” On this idea, the issue moves at a nice, relaxed pace and gives readers a break from what has been...

Review: Harley Quinn #7

Picking up on the events of last issue, Harley Quinn and her cohorts in the Purple Satin group, Jello and Billy Blood, enter the super-hero fetish club Fowl Play, much to Harley’s delight, where...

Nightwing #8 kicks off with us following the threads of the Raptor storyline, who has apparently been stalking Nightwing his whole life – which extends back to the days of the circus. This is...

Review: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

Sometimes expectation and nostalgia for the past overwhelms reality. But every now and then the nostalgia boom hits a goldmine, such as in the case of this movie! The 1960’s Batman show, a classic...

Review: Harley Quinn #6

First up, the art in this issue of Harley Quinn is straight up some of the best I’ve seen in recent times and it fits the story beats to perfection. Harley, who often plays light and snappy in this...

Review: Nightwing #7

Rebounding out of the Night of the Monster Men event, Nightwing #7 quickly finds it’s feet and this issue is among my favorite in the series to this point.   The issues begins in Sydney,...

Review: Harley Quinn #5

Harley is truly punk and beautiful. The first page of Harley Quinn #5, with Harley as a Punk Rock Chick singing about pizza pie, is truly awesome.   We cut to night-time Coney Island, Brooklyn,...

Review: Nightwing #6

Night of the Monster Men may well be my least favorite bat-event in the last 10 years – which isn’t to say it doesn’t have some redeeming moments, but they haven’t lifted this event...

Review: Harley Quinn #4

Coming fresh out of the last arc involving the zombie/infection breakout at Coney Island, Harley does some paid good deeds for the hot dog vendor who had the stall that sold the infected meat, and...

Review: Nightwing #5

To this point, Nightwing has had a strong solid start to rejuvenate the series coming out of Rebirth. Unfortunately after the incredibly boring events of Batman #7 as the start of the Night of the...

Review: Harley Quinn #3

Following the events of last issue, Poison Ivy has rescued Harley and the crew from the rampaging alien-infected horde, with the aid of her trusty weed-whacker! In the meantime, a joke is set up as...

Review: Nightwing #4

Nightwing #4 kicks with Nightwing and Raptor (who it’s becoming increasingly obvious has a kind of funky mask) in conversation with Dr. Leviticus, now free of the cage they located her in last...

Review: Harley Quinn #2

An Olivia Newton John mention mid fight, fantastic art with Harley in her nifty new outfit featuring the red and black playing cards, Harley on a horse crunching zombies with a baseball bat, and...

Review: Nightwing #3

Nightwing has been a title hot out of the gate in DC Rebirth, and Nightwing #3 does not slow that momentum. Picking up in media res, as Raptor stands over a bleeding prone body, we see Batgirl...

Review: Batman: The Killing Joke

Many Batman fans of a certain age and time period will recall the prominence of The Killing Joke graphic novel in their local comic shop. Alongside Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen and The Cult, it...
