Review: Batman #684

When the Bat’s away… yada…yada…yada… Nightwing down?  Pizza Boy only hope for rescue?  Gordon and Bullock weepy over Batman?  Who is that girl in the tattered rags?  What the hell?  None of this makes sense from the previous issue…  Time to tune in for the latest installment of a world without Batman. (Cue organ music.)

Review: Blue Beetle #34

Wham! Bam! A Dead Blue Beetle? This title can’t come out often enough, but sadly, the faster the issues come, the sooner the series ends (thanks DC). With two issues to go, the big showdown between the new Doctor Polaris and Blue Beetle comes to a head. Only… Blue Beetle died last issue.

Review: The Remnant #1

When Hollywood comes a calling to a comic publisher, it’s usually to take a property and turn it into a motion picture. In the case of The Remnant, the situation is reversed, as Stephen Baldwin heads to Boom! Studios to create a tale filled with suspense and the supernatural.

Review: Wonder Woman #27

Or – “Make A Hawk A Dove, End A War With Love, Make A Lah Farnah FOO!” Sorry, I was never really clear on what that last lyric was.  For months now, Gail Simone has seemingly been building up to something epic with her work on Wonder Woman, and it seems that we’re finally going to get a glimpse of what it is.  Last issue, yet another strange creature arrived to challenge the Amazing Amazon, but this time, the story ends differently…

Review: Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Season 8 #20

Or – “Time, See What’s Become Of Me…” I think the best part of Buffy (like any really good tapestry/universe story) is that the characters are allowed to change and grow, often in ways that you wouldn’t have imagined upon first viewing.  I found myself watching the Buffy pilot not that long ago, and was very impressed with how naturally the characters’ stories seemed to be, even when the source material was anything but natural.  Some time ago, Joss Whedon had pitched a Buffy cartoon series that would tell stories from the character’s past, with the addition of little sister…

Review: The Umbrella Academy: Dallas #2

What is going on? When the Major Spoilers Crew reviewed the first volume of The Umbrella Academy, it was pretty much agreed that this was a rocking series.  So when it was announced Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba were teaming up again for an all new adventure, I was on board for that mystery trip.  But man, is this series a head trip and a half.

Review: Invincible #57

Crossovers. Why’d it have to be crossovers? Crossovers are one of those occurrences in comics where a character from one title appears in the pages of another title and vice versa.  Generally, these events happen in the pages of titles from large publishers, and is a way to remind readers that the company’s universe is big and organic. Invincible, on the other hand, works perfectly well as a stand-alone universe in and of itself, so when characters begin to make more than a referential appearance in the pages, I get a bit concerned. Especially when the crossover features characters created…

Review: Top 10 – Season Two #3 (of 4)

Or – “Oh, Joe Pi, Where Art Thou?” America’s Best Comics is one of my most-missed of the early 00’s comic companies, as Alan Moore and company delivered month after month, giving us creative takes on superhero tales, drawing as much from pulps and television as from comic history.  Top 10 was, arguably, the most successful of the various offerings, so it’s good to see original creators Xander Cannon and Gene Ha back in the saddle with the characters of Neopolis’ Tenth Precinct…  But, can lightning strike into that same bottle again?

Review: The Flash #247

Well, it’s been a good run…again… I guess I wasn’t paying close enough attention when the flood of solicitation information for the various companies came rolling in because I totally missed that this was the last issue of Wally West as the Flash.  It’s like deja vu all over again. Is DC setting itself up for another round of fan backlash, or the beginning of the greatest era of comics since the 1980s?

Review: Batman #683

“Bring out your dead!”  “But I’m not dead yet!” Bet you thought Batman #681 featured the death of Batman, and all the hype USA Today, and other newspapers and magazines spewed out that week capped off the end of a legend. Turns out Batman didn’t die in that fiery helicopter crash, and Grant Morrison is now spending two additional issues tying the appearance of Batman in Batman to the Batman we’ve seen walking freely around in Countdown. That’s right true believers – it ain’t done yet!
