Take a good look at the picture below. What do you see? Batman being all heroic, damsel in distress, the Penguin with his full moon monocle rising behind them. Uh, yeah, let’s forget the Penguin. We’ll stick with Batman. Anyway he’s got the young lady held protectively in his arms as she swoons.
Ok, now take a look at the next picture. Look familiar?! Hey Batman, are you going all Rhett Butler on us? And please don’t say, “Frankly, I don’t give a…

Every good detective story starts with a dame. Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5, the penultimate issue of this timelost mini-series, is no different. After being shot and run over by a car at the end of the previous issue, we first see a confused Bruce Wayne recovering in a Gotham hospital bed. That’s where he’s introduced to the beautiful but mysterious Ms. Marsha Lamarr. While she has paid for his treatment, it becomes clear that…

After last month and not really enjoying the Red Robin book, I really did try to come into this with an open mind. The same open mind that caused me to buy nearly all the RIP and Battle for the Cowl tie-ins that added nothing to the story. With that in mind you will excuse me for my next comment:
This comic was crap. Now usually at this point, I would go off on a tirade of why I thought the comic…

So you didn't get to head to New York last weekend for NYCC? And you missed the Young Justice panel? Well that sucks. We managed to find this online, although who knows how long it will be up and available. So watch it while you can.

"Batman/Superman: Apocalypse" and "Batgirl: Year One the Motion Comic" are two topics which I discuss at the beginning of this hour. Kimberley Rockmore joins me from the Watchtower Newsdesk, and shares some small screen news. Plus, I review Detective Comics #406 and #407, Batgirl #14, and Birds of Prey #5. I finish off the episode with my literature recommendation, and Thomas Matis pops on at the end for a few words on Batgirl #14.
