As always with the first issue of a series, there's groundwork to be laid. Hawk and Dove #1, written by Sterling Gates and drawn by Rob Liefeld, is no exception. The issue opens with a report of a science terrorist, Alexander Quirk, who intends to restore the system of checks and balances within the United States. Unverified information says he's hi-jacked a small cargo plane for an attack on the capital; however,…

Batman and Robin #1 is written by Peter Tomasi and illustrated by Patrick Gleason, both familiar to fans of DC from their work on Brightest Day, Green Lantern, and a story-arc on the previous iteration of Batman and Robin. Anyone who read my review of it knows I criticized them heavily for their characterization of Damian Wayne, and unfortunately, it's the same thing this time around.

Flashpoint, and an era of DC Comics over 75 years in the making, comes to an end. This event has run over the summer and was widely publicized as the game-changer that would tie the old DCU to the DCnU.
The issue opens with Barry Allen being transported to the heart of the battle between the Amazons and the Atlanteans, tussling there with Thawne. Reverse Flash is…

The main premise of the issue is Tim is finally going to take out Digger Harkness, AKA Captain Boomerang #1 who at the end of Identity Crisis died while murdering Jack Drake, Tim Drake’s father. Digger came back during the Blackest Night…

Batman and Robin #22 brings to an end the short-lived Tomasi/Gleason run we were all so hyped up about. For the past two issues, we've been learning about the criminological leanings of the White Knight. We know he dopes his victims with Ketamine, issues instructions in their ear via a small receiver, and kills the relatives of anyone who spent time in Arkham. At the close of the last issue, we saw the bodies of several different people being prepared for…
