This is probably my favorite image of the Demon's Head. Perhaps it is because for once, he and the Detective are not at each other's throats. Instead, within the pages of Son of the Demon, Batman has become the Demon's heir apparent and has decided he will take Talia for his bride and take over the League of Assassins. Here, they play the only game these two should play; chess. A terribly appropriate image and it reminds me how similar they are to Holmes and…

Ah, December. Normally a month flooded with trades and one-shots and minis and… Wait, that sounds exactly like this month. Coming fresh off the heels of a November jammed with papers, December offers a two-part mini-series titled Batman: Orphans. Written by executive editor Eddie Berganza, this mini-series will be concluded with the release of part two on December 22.
The story opens with Robin dead in a pool of blood, rain pouring from the skies in the way that only seems to happen in Gotham. Immediately,…

Red Robin #11 is the third part of the collision storyline, and also the 11th part of Chris Yost’s run on the character, that will culminate with issue 12 and end his tenure on the comic. The issue does its best to annoy the reader by jumping between Tam Fox and Vicki Vale and Red Robin fighting a bunch of league of assassin nobodies. All in all, what we have here is a mediocre comic.
The jumping back and forth in this issue is setting up that…

A new story-arc – 'Robins are Red …'; a new cover artist – Stanley 'Artgerm' Lau; a new interior artwork team – Talent Caldwell with Yvel Guichet and John Stanisci; plus a distinguished guest-star – Red Robin himself, Tim Drake: and maybe because there was so much 'new' about it Batgirl #8 felt, for me, just a little unsatisfactory. An enjoyable read? Yes, for sure, but just a little unsatisfactory nevertheless.
Following a brief – indeed very brief – appearance in Red Robin #9 this issue of Batgirl opens…

Editor's Note: Here is the final part of Suavestar's entry. Be sure to read the first two if you haven't already. And be sure to leave comments below on your thoughts of Fabian coming back.
Now for the big news, come June, Fabian Nicieza is coming to Red Robin. Most people will be happy about this news, as it means an end to the Chris Yost run on the book. I am one of those people; I am not a fan of Yost’s writing on the book.
I did not like it…

Red Robin #8 is the end to the arc known as the council of spiders, and really is the finale to everything that Chris Yost has been setting up since issue #1. That being said, this issue is not something to cheer about, on the contrary, I found this issue to be the most cliched and boring of the entire series, and after reading what has came before this, which is saying something.
The comic really just comes across as Yost not really knowing how to…

Red Robin #7 written by Chris Yost and with art by Marcus To and Dexter Vines is part three of a four part arc called “Council of Spiders.”
Yost who through the past six issues has bombarded the reader with so many flashbacks, flash-forward’s and flash sideways that you did not know where you were half the time. Were you in the present with Tim, were you in the past, or were you with someone else?
These were questions I kept asking myself, thankfully, Yost has found some…
