With Batman v Superman landing in theaters on March 25th, we’ve seen a lot of the pick your side type promotions going on, which includes popular breakfast cereals getting in on the act. Not one to be left behind, we have our own Batman v Superman debate for your consideration this week.
Let’s travel to a simpler time and see what Batman’s life was like in 1966 with this brand new set from LEGO! Take the jump for a speed build and review of LEGO DC Super Heroes: Batman Classic TV Series Batcave set #76052.
In March, LEGO will release the DC Comics Superheroes Batcave set based on the 1966 television series. While we were able to see some blurry images last week, the official images show the glory that comes when one opens the box.
As you watch the second season of Fox’s Gotham (which begins tonight), be sure to keep your eyes peeled for something special! Sometime during this season, you’ll see credit being given to Bill Finger, often referred to as “the co-creator” and “co-architect” of the Batman mythology. And when you watch next year’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice film, look for the same thing to happen. When the announcement via the Hollywood Reporter that this was going to happen was released last Friday, I was overjoyed … and I still am!
I often hear that my reviews are too positive, that I should rag on things I don’t like as well as promote things I think are the best of the week. Hey, I’m just trying to help you readers get the best product for your hard-earned money, after all! Well, this week I’m going to talk about the Bat-book that’s coming to an end soon. Once I read issue #4, I understood on a reader’s level why it won’t be around much longer. That title is Arkham Manor.
The “Forever Evil” event continues to shake things up in the DCU. Admittedly a small one in terms of number of releases, this week the fourth issue of this miniseries hit the stands! It’s all-out chaos as the DC Universe continues its march through darkness! War erupts across the Earth between the villains! Allegiances are formed! Rivals are murdered! And at center stage it’s Lex Luthor versus Batman – and their fight couldn’t come at a worse time as Deathstroke’s hunting party closes in on the world’s only hope against the Crime Syndicate!
In which Selina makes an enemy Itâ€™s too bad DC didnâ€™t take a long hard look at what Paul Dini was doing in the pages of Detective Comics and make the executive decision to turn his Heart of Hush story into the final Batman story.Â Instead of a whacked out tale, Dini takes the legend of Batman and brings it back to the one thing that can save any hero, heal any wound, and thwart the worst of people – love.
vs. The Horror From Beyond, or â€œoh no he didnâ€™tâ€… After reviewing the most awful Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves #1, I said I would probably not review issue two.Â When I wrote that, little did I remember that I had already pre-ordered the second and third issues.Â And since Iâ€™m pressed for time, I took a gander at the issue and found it not as bad as the last.
The Booster Gold title has been one of the biggest surprises in recent years. No one ever thought that Booster Gold could be developed in to a comic title that anyone would actually pine for. But with Geoff Johns writing all bets are off apparently, as Booster Gold #09 continues the mind-blowing adventures of Booster and his best friend, Blue Beetle.
