In this latest collection of stories from the mind and pen of John Byrne, IDW packs two time-lost series togetherâ€”Danger Unlimited and Babe. First up is the four-part Danger Unlimited, the first universe and characters Byrne created after leaving Marvel.

For girls living in Juarez, Mexico, life can be brief, brutal, and tends to end bloody. Some say up to 200 are â€œmissingâ€â€¦ others less optimistic say 400 or more.Â 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 â€œmissingâ€ in Juarez for as long as anyone can remember, and like the hellish drudgery of the factories most of them work in, itâ€™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 mayÂ have noticed that at the veryÂ bottom of each Hero History, tucked under the seemingly endless links, there’s a coming attraction for the next episode.Â It’s my old-school television roots showing…Â 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.Â Something important, something that caused an immediate change in plans.Â In order to explain the significance of this event, I need to tell you the story of “The Hero History That
Though not surprising in the slightest, I was pleasantly happy to see Two-Face Year One in this weekâ€™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 â€¦ needless to say, as a big Harvey Dent fan, Iâ€™ll be looking forward to buying this in TPB. But for the moment, weâ€™ve got 48 pages worth of Harvey Dent to review, and I was once again pleasantly surprised with how this turned out.
Set relatively soon after Bruce Wayne took up the mantle of the Batman, Batman Confidential tells the stories of Batmanâ€™s early outings.Â 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 Batgirlâ€™s first encounter with Catwoman. There isnâ€™t a Batman to be found in these issues, and when weâ€™re dealing with one of my favorite characters, Batgirl, the less Batman the
