Well, well, well. It's come to this. Batman: The Dark Knight concludes with what is solicited as the penultimate issue. For those of in love with dictionaries, penultimate actually means "second to last." Don't be confused, this is the last issue of the arc. This is the last issue prior to the DC relaunch.
Unfortunately, it's still a pretty terrible issue. We open where we left off, with Dawn and Batman standing on her balcony, in the rain. Batman is…

After months of delays on this series, it's odd to get the fourth issue only two weeks after getting the third issue. Maybe some of my irritation has subsided, maybe I feel like some of the loose threads are starting to come together, maybe I've just had a better lunch. Whatever the reason, this issue angers me a lot less than issue three did.
We open with the mystery thief coming home to find her father being shaken down by…

In the third issue of this ongoing, delayed numerous times series, we pick up the story of Dawn Golden's disappearance, a suspicious cop, the theft of the Batmobile, the monster attacking indigents, the appearance of Etrigan and the escape of Killer Croc.
We touch on each storyline from the get-go, with the possessed version of Ragman attacking a vagrant and Etrigan attempting to stop him. Ragman notices the lack of rhyming in…

In the previous issues of Superman/Batman we traveled through time and space through the miracle of modern science. In the latest issue of Superman/Batman we travel through time and space through the miracle of modern magic?
Written by Cullen Bunn with pencils by ChrissCross and inks by Marc Deering we begin part one of “Sorcerer Kings.” Our story starts out with the Shadowpact investigating a magical catastrophe of “biblical proportions”. I don’t know about you but that always sends up a red flag for me. And speaking of…

This month’s issue of Batman: Streets of Gotham jumps straight into the action, and so shall we. Hush’s recently acquired mob squad has led him to the lair of Dr. Death, whose efforts to mercilessly kill them all are quickly thwarted. Hush strong arms the masked villain into his employ, and his plan to murder Bruce Wayne finally starts to pick up some steam. While this is all an improvement from last week, it’s actually out-shined by a mostly…

Heart of Hush holds a special place in my comic book collection. It was actually the first Detective Comics story I bought, and one of the first things I ever started to read in the DC Universe. So when Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen were given their own series to continue working together I was more than a little excited and the promise of a follow up to Heart of Hush should have been an instant success for the duo. Unfortunately, Batman: Streets…

It’s too bad that Streets of Gotham will be discontinued this spring, but at least with the current story arc, House of Hush, it looks like the series may go out with a bang. When Paul Dini writes for this series, it’s been great and so far this Hush story has been no different.
The Bedbug’s Bite opens with Bruce checking out a large gathering of people in Gotham and discovers that they are all sleepwalking under the control of…
