Review: Young Justice #6

For an issue with only Superboy and Superman on the cover, Young Justice #6 has a nice amount of Robin to start the issue. I will focus heavily on the Robin section of the issue, and less on the rest...

Um, seriously Hal, are you for real?

  Your friendly neighborhood comic book shop recently distributed DC's "The New 52" and inside it was a sneak preview to Justice League #1 that goes on sale 8/31/2011. There are...

Review: Detective Comics #881

Over the past 8-9 months we've come to expect a lot from Scott Snyder and Detective Comics because his run has showed us that not only does he know how to weave a good story he also knows how to...

New Bat-Book Logo Comparisons

When the news was announced that all of the DC Universe titles were being renumbered to one, everyone shared mixed emotions. Time has moved on from then and more news and has been shown. One of the...

Review: Flashpoint: Batman: Knight of Vengeance #3

  After the big reveal at the end of Knight of Vengeance #2, I wasn't sure how Brian Azzarello was going to top that issue. In my less than humble opinion, he managed to tie it all up in the...

Review: Secret Six #36

Before I started writing this review, I did something I normally don’t do, I looked up some other reviews for this final issue of Secret Six, and to my surprise, the reviews I found all praised...

Batman in Flashpoint!

Examining Dr. Wayne Part 2   When I first started to examine the personality of the Thomas Wayne Batman I was convinced he was a broken man with a murderous bent.  As evidence, I pointed...

Review: Batman: The Dark Knight #4

After months of delays on this series, it's odd to get the fourth issue only two weeks after getting the third issue. Maybe some of my irritation has subsided, maybe I feel like some of the loose...

Review: Detective Comics #880

As if things couldn’t get any worse for Jim Gordon and Dick Grayson, Scott Snyder yet again puts both of them in very sticky situations. With the Joker loose, Barbara Gordon Sr. exposed to...

Review: Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Graysons #2

  From the opening of the issue, it's clear the Amazons mean business. Diana strategizes in a small room. She's speaking to one of her generals, trying to figure out whether this war is...

Review: Secret Six #35

Long term readers will know that I have been incredibly harsh on this site when reviewing Secret Six. I felt that the dialogue was nothing more than gibberish, the art to be substandard and everyone...

Review: Red Robin #25

As Red Robin reaches its quarter century issue Tim Drake celebrates by taking part in an issue that tries to be action packed, but in the end comes across as shallow and contrived and the slightest...

Review: Batman #712

Tony Daniel's final issue of Batman is one that isn’t easily classified as good or bad. On the one hand this issue has been far superior than the other issues in his run, but on the other...

Review: Batman: The Dark Knight #3

In the third issue of this ongoing, delayed numerous times series, we pick up the story of Dawn Golden's disappearance, a suspicious cop, the theft of the Batmobile, the monster attacking...

Review: Detective Comics #879

The story in this issue of Detective Comics could have easily been one big cheesy cliche with all of it’s exhilarating climaxes and it’s dual story that blends into one another in almost...

Review: Flashpoint: Batman-Knight of Vengeance #2

      I am writing this now as a warning. If you have not yet read this issue, if you have avoided all spoilers or even if you have been engulfed in the hype surrounding this issue and...

DCU Spotlight: Review: Flashpoint #3

  When we last saw our hero, Barry Allen, he was one crispy critter. After trying to replicate the lab accident that turned him into the Flash, Barry was laying on the ground, sizzling, while...

Review: Batman and Robin #25

The final issue of the Judd Winnick penned Batman and Robin arc is upon us. We open with the unnamed villain from issue 24 listening to poor Scarlet talk about how Jason Todd is coming for her....

  In issue number five of “Batman Incorporated” we get a good look at the “Bat-Plane” as it swoops over Africa and picks up new character “Batwing” as he was...

Review: Detective Comics #878

No words can possibly attempt to explain what Scott Snyder has done for Detective Comics or more importantly Batman in general. He single-handedly took all of the BS that has piled up recently,...

Review: Batgirl #22

Amidst all the news coming from DC over the past month or – and worries for the future of some of our favorite characters – it's been easy to forget that there's still the...

Single Page Batman Origin Story

Review: Batman and Robin #24

Batman and Robin #24 is the second issue in the latest three-issue arc. Written by Judd Winick, with art by Greg Tocchini, the issue lacks some of the finesse of the last issue.   We open with...

Batman in Flashpoint!

  The Artwork     In this article I’d like to take a look at the artwork for Batman as provided by Andy Kubert and Eduardo Risso. As most of you readers know the Batman in this...

Review: Red Robin #24

Red Robin #24 is a sour issue for me. Not because the writing is bad, because it’s not. Not because Marcus To, and inker Ray McCarthy aren’t doing a damn fine job on art, because they...

Review: Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Graysons #1

  ‘Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Graysons’, written but J.T. Krul with art by Mikel Janin, is the second of the Batman related ‘Flashpoint’ tie-in titles, featuring...

Review: Secret Six #34

The old saying is, don’t judge a book by its cover. I don’t think that is more apropos than it is with Secret Six #34. When you see the book on the shelf, it has the image of Bane,...

Batman in Flashpoint!

  Batman in Flashpoint! Examining Dr. Wayne     As promised in my last look at Batman in Flashpoint I would reveal my take on the Thomas Wayne Batman. I characterized the identity of...
