Last Week in the Batcave

I have to open our regular meeting this week with a little bit of bragging from my part. I must have instincts more heightened than all of them Bats put together because I smelled something fishy...

Review: Batman #26

(Spoilers ahead) “The War of Jokes and Riddles” carries forward in Batman #26.  The Riddler, obviously, has survived Joker’s assault and bounces back rather quickly for a man who has just...

Review: Batman #25

I’ve been both looking forward to “The War of Jokes and Riddles” with both anticipation and wariness.  Anticipation for the return (albeit in flashback form) of two of my favorite members of...

Hiya, me guano stinkin’ fellas! Past week had so much news that it got hard to digest, and we are still being overfed with tidbits of news about Dark Nights: Metal. As if we weren’t getting...

Details for War of Jokes and Riddles Revealed

  Last weekend’s Fan Expo Dallas was big when it comes to news on the upcoming DC events and arcs. If the announcement of Dark Nights was not reason enough, we also had Tom King unveiling...

Review: Batman #13

Again, we find ourselves at the closure of a Tom King Batman story arc.  Batman #13 brings the conclusion to King’s sophomore effort, “I Am Suicide.”  I find myself in a similar place as I...

Review: Batman #12

As “I Am Suicide” shambles forward, we get another mixed bag from Tom King.  This issue features another letter-based narration, only this one’s from Batman to Catwoman, and it seems to have...

Review: Batman #11

As we dig deeper into “I Am Suicide,” I find myself torn.  Issue #11 brings us the third installment, wherein things happen, but not really in the way I was expecting.  We open with a flashback...

Review: Grayson #16

Breakdown: Tom King and Tim Seeley deliver a script that is the most fun I’ve had reading a comic in a while. It’s pretty clear these guys had fun writing this issue. And that’s...

Review: Grayson #15

Disclaimer – if you have not picked up Robin War #1, you will be lost, as this is part two of that story.   I appreciate how DC handled this crossover. They have on the cover which part of...

Review: Grayson #13

First of all, I want to thank Bill for covering last month’s issue for me. It was an amazing issue, and he did an amazing review on short notice, and I 100% agree – that issue deserved a...

Review: Grayson #9

This book is just plain fun. Really, it has everything you could want in a comic. I’ve never heard someone who has actually read this book, and didn’t like it. Everyone I hear who hates...

Review: Grayson #4

This issue opens with a seemingly bored Dick Grayson (Agent 37) listening to a briefing by the Spyral leader Mr. Minos…while annoyingly sucking on a sucker. Eventually Helena, who is also...

Review: Grayson #2

With this being the second issue of Grayson, I continue to find this series doing a great job of what it needs to accomplish. It has a great cast of characters who are just as interesting as the...

Review: Grayson #1

Well, Nightwing #30 left a bad taste in many people's mouths. In short, it was a disaster, and many didn't even want to pick up Grayson after that. I'm here to tell you, that issue #1 was...

Review: Batman Eternal #13

Take it easy on me here, I haven't been reading Eternal since I stopped covering it last time. But I have been keeping up with it via The Batman Universe, so hopefully that will be enough, for...
