30 Days of NightBen TemplesmithIDW Publishingmatt fractionPress ReleaseTrade Paperback

For girls living in Juarez, Mexico, life can be brief, brutal, and tends to end bloody. Some say up to 200 are “missing”… others less optimistic say 400 or more.  Someone or something has made killing them a sport, and the authorities are less than motivated when it comes to solving the crimes. Girls have gone “missing” in Juarez for as long as anyone can remember, and like the hellish drudgery of the factories most of them work in, it’s become a way of life. And besides, what are a few more dead girls in a place like this?

Or – “Bruce Banner Malibu Barbie, Anyone?” Astute Spoilerites may have noticed that at the very bottom of each Hero History, tucked under the seemingly endless links, there’s a coming attraction for the next episode.  It’s my old-school television roots showing…  In any case, the last Hero History promised a little bit a Tinya in your life, and I was well into gathering my research for her story, when something happened.  Something important, something that caused an immediate change in plans.  In order to explain the significance of this event, I need to tell you the story of “The Hero History That

BatmanDCHarvey DentReview

Though not surprising in the slightest, I was pleasantly happy to see Two-Face Year One in this week’s pull lists. I was however surprised that it was only a two parter, but then I found that it was 48 pages long, and … needless to say, as a big Harvey Dent fan, I’ll be looking forward to buying this in TPB. But for the moment, we’ve got 48 pages worth of Harvey Dent to review, and I was once again pleasantly surprised with how this turned out.

BatgirlBatmanDCReview

Set relatively soon after Bruce Wayne took up the mantle of the Batman, Batman Confidential tells the stories of Batman’s early outings.  I first jumped on to the book at issue 17, because of the Batgirl/Barbara Gordon story being told. I am so glad that I did, and look forward to getting my hands on a TPB of the earlier issues. Batman Confidential #17 and #18 tell the story of Batgirl’s first encounter with Catwoman. There isn’t a Batman to be found in these issues, and when we’re dealing with one of my favorite characters, Batgirl, the less Batman the
