Oh Arkham Knight just when I think that you’re ready to move forward you fool me and take a step back.Chapter four doesn’t move the plot forward in any significant way until the very end but...

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight Chapter #3

I was pretty down on chapter #2 of Arkham Knight last week. But fortunately the creators correct the course somewhat to create an issue that is uneven but ultimately a really enjoyable conclusion to...

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight Chapter #2

The Joker died at the conclusion of Arkham City but if you thought that meant that the clown prince of crime was done wreaking havoc on Batman and Gotham City you were sadly mistaken.   In...

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight Chapter #1

Historically videogame tie-in comics are pretty useless. A lot of the time they use second tier writers and second tier artists and let’s be frank here, they usually kind of suck. Even when these...

Review: Batman and Robin #35

This book looks freaking GORGEOUS! I think Gleason is getting better and better. I don’t know how, but he is. But I also think the darker shades of John Kalisz’s coloring make it look...

Review: Batman and Robin #34

Basically, this is the make-up issue for the Bat-family. They are finally at peace after the results of Death of the Family. And it was a good sign of things to come. I enjoyed their interactions...

Review: Batman and Robin #30

The main thing that stood out to me this issue is how fitting Patrick Gleason's art is for the Amazons. Wonder Woman and her sisters have been drawn with varying levels of musculature, but the...

Review: Forever Evil: Arkham War #6

It all ends here. The big finale. The grand crescendo. This was a big letdown. To me, you can make or break a story based on how it ends, and this ending didn't deliver. Bane finally goes back to...

Review: Batman and Robin #28

I've been on the fence regarding this story from time to time. I enjoy what's being done with Two-Face, but the introduction of a brand new character to make the story work rubs me wrong. In...
