This is the fourth in the series of one shots detailing the origins of the Dark Multiverse Batmen, while not as strong as The Murder Machine, I did find it to be better than The Red Death. The Cover Jason Fabok and Brad Anderson do the honours again. I like this one as much as … Continue reading Batman: The Drowned
This is the second standalone title in the Metal cross-over, covering the dark multiverse origin of The Murder Machine, a combination of Batman and Cyborg. The Cover It's very colourful for starters. Lots of bright blues, pinks and purples. It features The Murder Machine himself standing atop a tank of some sort taking out the … Continue reading Batman: The Murder Machine
Ever wondered what it would be like if Batman had the powers of The Flash and was evil? This issue provides the details, and it's not good! The Cover Jason Fabok and Dean White do the honours here, and it looks downright menacing. The titular Red Death appears front and center, a dark mesh of … Continue reading Batman: The Red Death
The Cover This cover, by Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair has a lot of what I like about the current Justice League: Lots of vibrant colour, action, and the suggestion of conflict within! I like the tease that the League will be fighting their future children, in fact that tease is exactly why I picked … Continue reading Justice League Kids? A Look at What May Be.
It's been a while since I reviewed a comic, so, let's get back at it! The Cover This issue has a pretty sweet looking cover. Featuring Harley Quinn, Katana, and Captain Boomerang fighting a very Holocaust(anyone remember Apocalypse's son from the 90's Age of Apocalypse storyline) looking villain. It portrays a lot of action, and … Continue reading Suicide Squad #24: Kill your Darlings Part 4
This is the second prequel to DC's Metal event. It picks up right where the Forge left off, focusing on the same characters with cameos from several other prominent Justice League and Batman characters. The Cover The cover was done, like The Forge, by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. It carries a stronger … Continue reading Dark Days: The Casting
This is the first lead-in to the upcoming DC Metal Crossover Event. It appears to be revolving around the Nth Metal(I'm not sure what it is myself, so if this is confusing, you're not alone). It seems pretty dark, and quite Batman-centric. The Cover The cover just looks cool. It reminds me of anniversary issues … Continue reading Dark Days: The Forge Review
This is part four of DC's 'The Button' crossover between Batman and The Flash. Have no idea what happened in the earlier issues? Neither do I! Lets have some objective and slightly confused fun! The Cover The cover of this issue is great. It has a real old-time feel to it, like your pulling it … Continue reading The Flash #22: The Button Part 4
This is the first issue in the aftermath of "The Button" crossover with the Flash. I picked it up primarily because I'd never purchased a Batman comic before, and the tag line of "The Strangest Team-Up in History" caught my eye. How does it stand up? Here we go! The Cover This one is kind … Continue reading Batman: The Brave and the Mold
So I took the kids to the local comic shop today to look around. My son runs straight to the vintage arcade games and pretends to play(1943 is still awesome), and my daughter looks at all the comics, mostly for things like Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Wonder Woman, occasionally she'll ask about Batgirl … Continue reading Today was Wonder Woman Day. Who Knew?
