When reviewing a comic, you have to first figure out what the book is trying to accomplish. You can't stick to all the same rules, because really not all books follow them. So when I read Harley Quinn, I have to base it more on an enjoyment level. It's not going for an epic story. It's trying to have a good time. This special Harley Quinn one-shot, accomplished on that. It's really, really fun. It shows the downs (lots of downs) to time spent at Comic-Con, and the few ups…

The voice behind James Gordon in Batman: The Animated Series, Bob Hastings has passed away.

Paul Dini shared his remorse for the passing of the actor on Twitter. "Flags flying at half-mast in Gotham…

Ever seen a cartoon or old TV show where there’s a love potion (either consumed or airborne), and zaniness happens when unintended civilians become entranced with our protagonist? That’s Harley Quinn #3, but with escaped convicts, slaughter in a hardware store, bad-lady on cop-lady kissing and dwarf Glenn Danzig Big Tony being an unintentional pimp.
Despite how dismissive my recap was, this was a pretty fun one-off Valentine’s Day tie-in. The previous adventure of Harley and Poison Ivy are established via the love potion gift Ivy leaves, and newly established side…

“Batman: The Animated Series” is remembered for doing a lot of great things for Batman and his supporting characters. Whether it was giving the characters great voices that would stick with you for a lifetime and you would continue to hear them in your head while you’re reading comic books, or how it gave certain characters new origin stories and characterizations that would end up being better than…

Harley Quinn is back! After a very disconcerting one-off during Villains Month transformed Harley from demented little scamp into a dissociative mass-child killer, the past few months have been full of anticipation and trepidation for the launch of Harley’s first full-time series in the 52. Would she be the earnest but comical vixen Dini and Timm made us we fall in love with on BTAS, or would she get the full ‘New 52’ spell of bleakness cast on her?
There’s no way to recap this in a…

Bleeding Cool reported a small interview from Terra Zero with Eduardo Risso (artist of 100 Bullets) about Paul Dini's new Vertigo series to star a character from the Batman comics. Risso will be working with Dini on the new series and has expressed interest in working him.
At best some will presume that Dini might be using a female character due to his previous run on Gotham City Sirens (2009) and his creation of Harley Quinn. It could be a male character that Dini is working on, Risso did not mention which Batman character it could be either. Who do you think the character will…

Brad Meltzer, while promoting his new book on conspiracy theories, recently shared his thoughts about how excited he is to be one of the writers on Detective Comics #27 with Newsarama.
Newsarama: As long as we're talking superheroes, I wanted to ask you about the Detective Comics story you're doing. I know it's a retelling of Detective Comics #27, where Batman was first introduced to the world. What can you tell us about that story?
Brad Meltzer: You know, I don't really want to reveal anything about the actual story. But I…

Carpenter tries to find time on her day off to work on a personal project. But thanks to Batman all the villains of the city keep clamoring for her services. Hijinks ensue, as is often the case with Li'l Gotham.
Chapters of this series tend to range from brilliant to good. This particular chapter definitely fits into the good category while not being one of the issues I’ll come back to multiple times. I liked it, but I…

Batman Black and White is one of the best concepts to ever come from the 2000's era of DC Comics. It’s an anthology series derived from works of various creators, some who are familiar with the Dark Knight (Darwyn Cooke, Neal Adams, Klaus Janson) and some who aren’t, (such as two of the creators in this issue). It was a chance to tell timeless, brief done-in-one tales that didn’t strictly hinge on continuity yet evoked several elements of the Batman mythos to tell the most…

So the Joker has this massive story line where he personally goes after Batman and his allies because somehow he has gained intimate knowledge about whom each of them are.
Okay, so this has been a kick-ass storyline so far, and no doubt will end in such a glorious fashion as only Scott Synder can provide these days. The question is though, what’s next? Oh yes, in Batman things move on to The Riddler and down the road we shall see the return of The Red Hood Gang…
