I count myself fortunate to have not only read Batman issues 1 through 51, but to be able to review many of those books here at MajorSpoilers.com! All good things must come to an end, however, so let me share my thoughts about the final Snyder/Capullo issue with you.

There’s been a lot of discussion online recently about autographs and what fans should pay to obtain them. Some comics pros have begun charging a pretty penny for their autographs. And some fans aren’t all that happy about it.

I love crossovers! I mean, Star Trek and anything else sci fi? I’m there! Flash and Supergirl on CBS? Loved it! But, when I heard about Batman teaming up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I was skeptical. VERY skeptical. After all, it’s the Dark Knight working with what is often considered a kids franchise. I mean, talking turtles and Batman? I wasn’t all that enthusiastic about it. However, I’ve grown to be a big fan of James Tynion IV, who can turn a great tale with the best of them. So I signed up for them. And I’m glad I

Being an anti-hero has a lot of appeal to many today. After all, the politicians are crooked, the system’s rigged against us, the cops are no good … all that good stuff. Most comics deal with the good guys, so it makes sense to have Nick Spencer, who also writes – count ‘em – TWO Captain America titles to want to go a different route. Hence The Fix.

It’s long been said that what makes good movies are the bad guys. If that person is not challenging the main character of the film, then it’s dull as dishwater. If he or she is, then we often feel for the “good guy” of the film, want that person to win! I think comics have that same element to them. When the villain rises up and we worry that the hero or heroine will not be victorious, we’re anxious to turn the page and see what happens next. Our perception of villains has changed over the years. We used to
