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: 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...

With all of the announcements regarding the Bat-books, some may have forgot that there are still three months of books to release between then. Books the seemingly have the daunting task of getting...

Bat-Bulletin: Trimming the Batman Line

One problem we at "The Batman Universe Comic Podcast" have is covering the many books DC puts out. It seems like the Batman line has more books than it really needs. Some are good, some are...

Review: Red Robin #22

Before I start this review, I best say something very important. I don’t like Azrael. I’ve read Knightfall, all three volumes of that story, and the story itself, to give it a short...

Review: Red Robin #21

Last month, I thought that was the end of it. I thought this is it, the end of this stupid Unternet storyline that has been bogging down Red Robin and bringing it to Chris Yost levels of boredom for...

Review: Red Robin #19

Sometimes when I read Red Robin, I always feel the need to ask, where is the fun, where is the charm from Tim Drake that I keep hearing about, and in this issue, I am given my answer. It’s in...

Review: Red Robin #18

You know, sometimes I wonder what does it take to make me enjoy a comic? Is it characters I like getting on with their lives and having fun, while I toil away at a degree I never seem to be getting?...

Review: Red Robin #17

Red Robin #17 is another solid issue from the series, that I am really starting to enjoy thanks to Marcus To and Fabian Nicieza. The art is always solid from To, and the writing for the most part has...

Review: Bruce Wayne: The Road Home-Red Robin

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...

Review: Red Robin #16

Red Robin #16 is a book of two halves for me. On the one half under Fabian Nicieza it is a fun book, that always delivers when it has to, at least so far in his five issue run. However on the other...

Review: Batman #703

Gearing up for the much anticipated return of Bruce Wayne has been a much labored process. We’ve got Batman and Robin, the Batman series, the return of Bruce Wayne series, and an upcoming title...

Review: Red Robin #14

Red Robin #14 is the second part of Fabian’s “Hit list” storyline, and also, his return to Tim Drake's life.   Last month I wrote about how it was great to see Fabian back...

Review: Red Robin #13

Red Robin #13 is a book I want to love. Is it the fact that Marcus To is slowly becoming one of my favorite consistent artists at DC, and making me feel like a proud parent watching their child grow...
