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…

Before I started writing this review, I did something I normally don’t do, I looked up some other reviews for this final issue of Secret Six, and to my surprise, the reviews I found all praised the book and said they’d be sad to see it go, and it truly was a heart-wrenching final issue.
Well, now for my thoughts:
I never want to read a comic written by Gail Simone ever again.
We start the issue with Bane and his girlfriend in bed, and Bane’s lady friend…

Long term readers will know that I have been incredibly harsh on this site when reviewing Secret Six. I felt that the dialogue was nothing more than gibberish, the art to be substandard and everyone involved in creating the book more interested in getting your $2.99 or £2.35 than writing something interesting and worthwhile. And then I read this issue.
Secret Six #35 details Bane’s plans to take down Batman and prove himself the best in the world, and break Batman, just like he did…

The old saying is, don’t judge a book by its cover. I don’t think that is more apropos than it is with Secret Six #34. When you see the book on the shelf, it has the image of Bane, breaking a Bat-Demon’s back. For me, when I saw this cover, I said “Wow” after reading the comic, my response is “Wow…..people pay good money to read this garbage?”
If you’ve been following my reviews of Secret Six for the past several months, you’ll notice I…

Editor's Note: Although we normally post up reviews for single issues, we are playing catch-up with Secret Six and with this multi-issue review we are caught up to what is currently out.
Secret Six #31-33 deals with the storyline involving the now infamous “Get out of hell free card” from the first storyline of the ongoing series. Things have changed a little for the title:
Nicola Scott has left the book and handed art duties over to J. Calafiore.
Daniel Luvisi has signed on to be…

DC Comics have released the solicitations for August 2011 and there are a number of interesting things occurring in The Batman Universe.
The first thing we see is that there will be another eighty-page giant this year with a cover by Dustin Nguyen. The creators writing and drawing in the issue were not named specifically, but there is plenty of time between now and August for them to name some off.
The remaining Retroactive one-shots are both released in August.
As far as creator changes, Chris Burnham will be back on Batman Incorporated for issue #10. Batman and Robin gets yet…
