All-Star Batman #1

Aug 10, 2016

Complemented by the slick, action-centric artwork of the legendary John Romita Jr. and Danny Miki, there's a distinct feeling this Batman run might become another iconic one. It has the look, the action and the story to match, so it can only get bigger and better with each passing issue. Welcome back, Scott. Please don't ever go away.

All-Star Batman #2

Sep 14, 2016

The second part of 'My Own Worst Enemy' is all about the action, with questions about Alfred's involvement in Two-Face's plan still up in the air. The assassins keep coming thick and fast, as the Dark Knight fights for his life and to get Two-Face to his destination outside of Gotham. Back at the Batcave, young Duke Thomas learns about Harvey Dent from Alfred, before deciding that Batman needs his help and heading out into the field. The biggest shock, however, is Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock finding out what lurks behind Wayne Manor's non-functioning grandfather clock " or do they?

All-Star Batman #3

Oct 22, 2016

All things considered, All-Star Batman #3 is another fantastic issue from a dream team. With Tom King's Batman moving from strength to strength along with Snyder's " and both seemingly pushing the other to be better " it's fair to say it's a great time to be a Batman fan.

All-Star Batman #7

Not many single-issue comic books can take your breath away, but All-Star Batman #8 is a masterpiece that deserves a spot in everyone's collection. Snyder's creating something special here, and you'd be a fool to not get on board now. There's simply nothing else quite like it.

Every issue of All-Star Batman surprises me. Not one story is similar to the one before, nor does it feel tired in any way. You can tell that Snyder's having the time of his life with this series, and it shows in the quality of this book. That's ten home runs in a row, Scott. We can't wait for the next issue.

All in all, All-Star Batman #11 is another solid entry in the series. It might not have the grit and intensity of the previous issue, but it succeeds in moving the story in an exciting direction. Also, we get to see Alfred punch Hush in the face and Penguin wear a Hawaiian shirt. Those two things alone are worth the cover price of this comic book.

Batman (2011) #41

Jun 12, 2015

With a strong The Dark Knight Returns atmosphere, it'll be interesting to see how long a run Gordon is given as the Batman before the inevitable happens. Speaking of which, the end of #41 was rather surprising. Not because it was entirely unexpected, but one would think it would make sense to happen a few more issues down the line. Could it be that Snyder is swerving us? I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Batman #1 doesn't stray too far from Snyder and Capullo's version " and this isn't a bad thing. If King and Finch manage to find a healthy balance between their fantastic action sequences with the same level of storytelling as their predecessors, there's no doubt that the "new" Batman will be a good Batman.

Batman (2016) #3

Jul 20, 2016

Unless Tom King is holding an ace up his sleeve and this is only the calm before the storm, Batman hasn't exactly been reborn; he's been aborted. Until this title goes somewhere further than two centimetres from the start line, I recommend picking up Green Arrow and Aquaman instead, since they deliver much more action and riveting storytelling than Batman.

While Batman and Gotham Girl's necessary heart-to-heart spread out across most of the issue, the final pages of Batman #6 are what Batman fans have been patiently waiting for. The revelation of Bane as the mastermind behind the 'I Am Gotham' storyline, and Batman's deal with Amanda Waller to set up his own Suicide Squad, made all the weeks' slow burn worth it.

So, is "Night of the Monster Men" the story that signals the real start of Rebirth Batman? It's looking likely that it is. As much as I loved the previous era of Batman, it's time for a new one. Let's hope DC has faith in this direction and allows it to develop further.

Batman (2016) #8

Oct 5, 2016

Batman's refusal to give up on his team aside, there was another purpose to Batman #8: to establish Duke Thomas as a legitimate member of the team. When the chips were down and not even Batman had a solution, Duke came to the rescue, establishing himself as a vital member of the team and not just Alfred's Batcave buddy. Duke has been given a major part in the Batman Rebirth, and it'll be interesting to see where his character goes. Personally, I'd love to see DC pull a fast one and turn him into a mighty foe for Batman in the same way The Flash team did with August Heart/Godspeed.

Like Snyder's 'The Black Mirror', Loeb's 'The Long Halloween' and Miller's 'The Dark Knight Returns', there's just a feeling of something special about Batman #9. This could be King's defining Dark Knight story and the one that finally convinces Batman fans the series is in good hands. Frankly, I'm excited.

Batman (2016) #10

Nov 2, 2016

Batman #10 is action-packed, even if it's a little low on the storytelling spectrum and feels more like an expensive, but small, appetiser before the main course. If King's run has taught us anything, it's that he tends to favour slower-paced stories. As long as the end result is as good as the last two story arcs have been, that's fine by me. Take your time, Tom.

'I Am Suicide' has been topsy-turvy so far, but it ain't over until the fat lady sings. Mikel Janin hasn't faltered once from his side, serving up a smorgasbord of eye candy, so now it's up to King to produce the goods consistently. Judging by the conclusion of 'I Am Gotham', I'm putting my faith in him to do so.

For months now I've defended King's run, calling for patience and saying it's a slow-burner. Well, I can no longer do this. When you look at books like The Flash, Nightwing and Titans, they've been consistently good. Even the so-called filler issues, such as Nightwing #9, are well written and aren't stretched out to buy a few more months until the next story arc. Batman, though, has become too hit-and-miss and it needs fixing. And fast.

Dec 14, 2016

As several Rebirth titles struggle to find their footing and perfect balance of what old and new fans want, Suicide Squad #8 hits it out of the park. This is the DC Comics everyone wants to read and experience. This is what we want.

Simply powerful. Part one of "Superman Reborn" pulls no punches as it takes a huge leap forward in unraveling Rebirth's mysteries.

Superman (2016) #21

Apr 19, 2017

Despite the positives, "Black Dawn" is turning into a Jon-centric affair. Is it necessary to feature Clark's son so much in this title?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #46

Jun 7, 2015

It's difficult to place #46. It is a vital puzzle piece, acting as a slow burner for bigger events, but its pace is also its biggest enemy. Could most of the story have been squeezed into #45 already? Quite possibly.

Venom (2016) #2

Dec 22, 2016

Venom isn't a kid-friendly Marvel title. Oh no, this is a villain-driven story that's doing justice to the original incarnation of the character, and bringing the danger back to the Venom name. After feeding off so many hosts, it's high time the symbiote got a bit of its own back, and Lee Price is proving to be the perfect, despicable protagonist for this series. Heck, all that's missing at this point is a family reunion with Carnage. Now that would be a party.
