Creator Spotlight: Frank Miller

Hello Bat-fans, Zach here, and I would like to introduce you to a new segment I like to call “Creator Spotlight”. Twice a month, I will write a lengthy piece about a creator who has...

Review: Batman Black and White Statue: Batman by Lee Bermejo

DESIGNED BY LEE BERMEJO SCULPTED BY JEAN ST. JEAN   I picked up this statue the other day from my local comic store and even though i have been collecting all of the Batman black and white...

3 Batman Bodies

So…..   This is why "Batman and Robin" issue 7 has been delayed so long? For those who don't know, the above is a preview image for issue 7 that DC Comics released today and...

Review: Batman: Streets of Gotham #8

After a one issue stint on Streets of Gotham number seven, Paul Dini again takes a break from the title and hands the writing duties over to guest writer Mike Benson. Benson gives us part one of the...

Review: Red Robin #8

Red Robin #8 is the end to the arc known as the council of spiders, and really is the finale to everything that Chris Yost has been setting up since issue #1. That being said, this issue is not...

Review: Batgirl #6

It's felt like a long month since turning the last page of Batgirl #5 and seeing Stephanie Brown, lying on the floor, having been shot in the head. Sure, I knew she'd be okay but I was...

Review: Batman Confidential #40

I must admit, when I found out Batman Confidential was double-shipping for the end of 2009, I was concerned that DC was trying to wrap up the Blackhawk Down story arc by the end of the year so the...

Review: World’s Finest #2

Everyone’s favorite 10 year old crime fighter is back and this time he is teaming up with Metropolis’ own Guardian in the second entry of the four part “World’s Finest”...

Review: Batman: Streets of Gotham #7

After a two issue break, Paul Dini returns to Streets of Gotham to continue his Mr. Zsaz storyline and provide us with a characterization of the under used Humpty Dumpty. Dustin Nguyen continues to...

Review: Batman Confidential #39

This issue is the final part of the Blackhawk Down story arc, and unfortunately, it was kind of disappointing. The first two issues were great, the third was good, but this one was kind of a letdown....

Review: Batgirl #5

About half-way through reading this book and it occurred to me – and I might be the only person who this hadn't previously occurred to – Batgirl is a TEAM book. I'm not talking...

Review: Red Robin #7

Red Robin #7 written by Chris Yost and with art by Marcus To and Dexter Vines is part three of a four part arc called “Council of Spiders.”   Yost who through the past six issues has...

Review: Batman Confidential #37

After reading the first issue of this story arc, I was very impressed, and hoping I wouldn’t be disappointed by part 2. Fortunately, I wasn’t. This issue delivers everything the first...

A Batman Bulletin from Blackest Night #5

The fate of Batman finally revealed? Bruce Wayne rises from the dead? The latest horror from the Blackest Night is none other than our own Caped Crusader?   In a stunning development from the...

Review: Red Robin #6

Red Robin #6 marks the debut on the series of artist Marcus To and inker Ray McCarthy on both the cover and interior of the book replacing Francis Manapaul, who handled the covers, and Ramon Bachs,...

Review: Batman: Unseen #4

You would think that after their long history with the character, Doug Moench and Kelley Jones would have some sort of grasp on the Batman mythos. However, the Unseen continues to be a poorly...

Review: Superman/Batman #66

Superman/Batman has historically been a hit or miss title, and issue sixty-six is a complete miss. Both, written and drawn by Scott Kollins, issue sixty-six is poorly done on both accounts. Kolins is...

Review: Batman and Robin #6

The conclusion of the Revenge of the Red Hood storyline is creatively woven together by the very talented Grant Morrison. Philip Tan also continues to provide a solid depiction of the dynamic duo. We...

Review: Batman and Robin #6

Philip Tan must feel like the middle child in a family of celebrities. No matter how solid his art may be, it will never live up to his “older brother” Frank and his “younger...

Review: Batman #693

Picking up where 692 left off, Daniel continues the “Life After Death” arc with Batman and Robin fighting against “False Faces” outside a hospital by the Pullman district....

Review: Batman/Doc Savage Special

A darkened room is pierced by a single light. The bloody corpse of a man bears witness to a stranger clad in black. The disembodied thoughts of a grief stricken soul stretch through this visual...

Review: Batman/Doc Savage Special

Brian Azzarello and Phil Noto team up to bring us one of the best Batman spin-off issues of the year. The Batman/Doc Savage Special is a unique and fresh approach to writing the character. This issue...

Review: Batgirl #4

Batgirl is possibly the book I'm enjoying more than any other at the moment – perhaps the storyline hasn't so far pulled up any trees but the writing, and particularly the dialogue,...

Review: Batman: The Widening Gyre #3

What is Kevin Smith doing? That was exactly what I was thinking as I read Batman: The Widening Gyre number three. Just like The Unseen miniseries, the Widening Gyre is unable to keep the momentum...

Review: Batman Confidential #36

Now this was an awesome issue. It did everything that the fist issue of a story arc should. But I’m getting ahead of myself.   It starts off with a pilot testing an experimental aircraft...

Which Blackest Night Title Wins?

We have reached the final part of the three episode storyline of Blackest Night featuring Batman and Superman. My aim here is not to recap the issues but to continue the friendly competition between...

Review: Batman: The Unseen #3

You know what they say, “Third time’s a charm.” The creative team of Doug Moench and Kelley Jones redeem themselves with issue three after a lackluster performance in issue two, to...

Review: World's Finest #1

The story opens in Amsterdam (don’t you wish you had Tim Drakes frequent flyer miles?) with Red Robin in hot pursuit of the Walewein Motorcycle gang. As we find out later the gang has something...

Review: Batman #692

Tony Daniel returns to right a ship that has gone way off course. The most important title in comics has been a weak imitation of its former self since Judd Winick took over the helm. Acclaimed more...

Review: Detective Comics #858

Even Greg Rucka's mom would have to admit that it has only been J.H. Williams III's art that has captivated Bat-fans into purchasing this title. Well Mrs. Rucka, your son finally came...
