This month, Batman: Streets of Gotham and its storyline “House of Hush” reach their conclusions, and if I had to choose any issue to leave on it would be this. The action is visceral, the plot twists are jarring, and there is limitless proof of the creative team’s outstanding abilities. It’s a shame that these qualities were missing from the majority of this arc’s run, a situation that was only magnified by the sheer volume of filler and interruptions…

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 be one of the most consistent artists currently lending their talents to the bat-books. However, while the art remains solid, the plot continues to leave us with the question I continue to ask; Why?

Don't fix it if it ain't broke. Change for the sake of change is never a good thing. These wise adages prove to be true more often than not. Issue #4 of the incredibly successful Batman and Robin monthly marks the title's artistic debut of Philip Tan. In my opinion, Frank Quitely's unique style and cinematic pacing have made every page of B&R a visually stunning work of art.

If you haven't been reading the Latest News on TheBatmanUniverse.net (Why haven't you?!!), then you would have missed that Dan Didio has had a change of heart about Batman Beyond appearing in a future DCU title. Well, I think I may have just read the first issue! Judd Winick and Mark Bagley have combined their artistic wisdom and turned Dick Grayson into Terry McGinnis.
For those of you who don’t remember the cartoon, Batman Beyond was about a youthful-spirited new Batman mentoring under an aged and gloomy Bruce Wayne. One…
