"The Gristle and the Ghostly", the concluding part in "The Death of Oracle" story-arc, opens with a fantastic, immediately recognizable, close-up of Helena Bertinelli – Huntress: needless to say she's angry, challenging Calculator to explain his actions after he orders Oracle's aircraft to be shot from the sky.
For once Calculator is a little lost for words, stammering somewhat as he tries to justify his actions. As his men look on Helena senses her captors vulnerability and looks to exploit the situation…

Let’s just start things off with the usual “A day late and a dollar short” banter, yes I know this review is a couple of weeks behind the issues release, and my reviews have been coming out later and later. Hopefully, things will get to a proper schedule when the next issue of Red Robin comes out, cause it’s a new storyline, and chances are, I may enjoy the book again. But this isn’t Red Robin, no, it’s the Teen Titans. Yes, it’s part…

'The Death of Oracle' continues with the third installment of this four-part story-arc. 'The Soul and the Sacrifice' opens with something of a surprise: Dinah 'Black Canary' Lance's late mother – Dinah Drake Lance – greeting her daughter from the headquarters of the JSA. When her mother asks why everything she loves dies and, as only a mother can, why she won't wear her hair differently, Dinah understandably becomes emotional.
Moments later she finds herself in the company of her father -…

A day late, and a dollar short, I bring to you, faithful TBU editorial readers my latest Red Robin review. Now before we begin, I would like to say this is another crossover, so let’s get my crossover issues out the way before I start, as if you haven’t read my Secret Six #30 review from a couple of weeks ago, this will be new. If you have read it, then enjoy me moaning about it again.
I hate crossovers, but I love crossovers when…

"The Death of Oracle" continues with the second part of this four-part story-arc entitled "The Gauntlets and the Guillotine". Having smashed their way into the nightclub where the Birds of Prey were enjoying a girls night out, Mortis – the self-proclaimed "Goddess of the Forgotten Dead" – accompanied by Mammoth and the "newbie" villain known as Current confronts the Birds demanding, for the final time they are told, to know which of them is Oracle.
Zinda Blake – Lady Blackhawk – steps…

'The Cape and the Cadaver' – first of the four part 'Death of Oracle' story-arc – opens at the window of a fairly anonymous looking Gotham City high-rise. At the window stands a man – The Calculator – surveying the city before him, wondering aloud just why Gotham's villains choose to make the city their home, the scene of their crimes.
Interrupted by one of his associates, Calculator is introduced to a visitor: Brian Durlin aka Savant. Comfortable that Savant isn't carrying…

With the events of 'The Flood' firmly behind her, Stephanie Brown has most certainly grown – both as a young woman and, just as importantly, as a member of the Batgirl 'team'.
Our story – appropriately entitled 'Trust' – begins with Stephanie, sweat dripping from her brow, facing her opponent who in turn stares back and throws down a verbal challenge. Moment later, it's game on as Steph lets loose a tremendous shot … much to the surprise of her opposite number.
We're at Gotham U, it's the second half…
