'68: Last Rites #1

Jul 23, 2015

The action in this issue is often pretty graphic (the 17+ rating could tell you that though) as guns go off in the big city and molotov cocktails ignite the streets. Kidwell, along with Zornow and Fotos have created a rebellion against the mess as a group of heroes (including the sniper mentioned above) sets out to fix up the city as best they can, but it's going to be a hell of a task.

Airboy #2

Jul 1, 2015

Airboy is a story about creating a story, but then along comes the character of the story into the real world you'll just have to check it out. Robinson and Hinkle have created a unique story that reads like an episode of Californication crossed with Saturday morning cartoons.It's a masterpiece!

Airboy #4

Nov 12, 2015

Robinson and Hinkle end their Airboy series on a high note as both humor and heart are prominent throughout. Hinkle delivers on the actions sequences as he depicts the war efforts against the Nazis. Robinson ties up his story of self-loathing and perseverance in a fitting way to the flow of the story. Now, let's get off the couch and get some writing done. Or stay on the couch. Just make sure you're writing.

This issue introduces you to concepts that were brewing in issues prior and creates a potential jumping on point for interested readers. The story is very action intent and delivers on that notion. The art is explosive and tempts you to look into every little detail.

Batman (2011) #33

Jul 24, 2014

Its clear Snyder is a writer capable of bringing new life to a seventy-five year old city as Batman reaches his anniversary this year. Hes successfully created a story that not only brings the mythology of Batman to the present, but also adds new energy to the city as he builds up his own version of Gotham. Hes managed to go from Secret City to Dark City to Savage City and keep it fine-tuned the whole way through. With a character full of iconic stories Snyder has successfully created a well-crafted story of his own with Zero Year.

Batman (2011) #40

Apr 30, 2015

Snyder has said before that this is his last turn on a Joker story, and with the way this ended we should all be okay with that. He pits two rivalsupon one another in a way that shows how truly dependent they are on the other's stance in Gotham, and it's also one of the craziest and most detailed fights you've ever seen.

The wait is finally over – and it was well worth it too! Issue #38 of Batman and Robin reminds us why Damien is one of the best Robins, if not the best Robin to ever patrol the streets of Gotham with the Dark Knight himself. But even as Robin is raring to go and drive fear into the scum of Gotham his father makes sureto remind him that he's the one “dressed to scare the bad guys”.

This issue goes to show us that no matter how old Bruce gets hes never going to change. Hes determined to get the job done and keep his allies as safe as possible, even if it means risking his own well-being to do it. The new take on Robin is also a welcomed change, as he proves to be on par with Bats, and know his personality enough to know when its best to ignore him.

Batman And Robin Eternal #1

Oct 8, 2015

Batman and Robin Eternal #1 is a trip back to the character loaded with the sameendlessly suspenseful narratives that made Batman Eternal so great. Tynion and Snyder showcase their talents in the first issue to create a surprising story from Batman and Robin's past. The artwork from beginning to end is met with great detail, with each character's entrance being soaked in the colors of their costumes (Bluebird's entrance has her face to face with the big blue Robo-Bat, the building she's near is blue/grey). If this issue is any indication of what's to comethen we're in for a seriousride.

Oct 16, 2015

Throughout the issue Seeley continues to infuse a constant stream of humor into the story, creating an issue filled with action that keeps you laughing (something he also did well during Batman Eternal). The artwork is once again fantastic this issue, with the fear gas induced scene bringing out some groovy artwork (going to work on making that word relevant again). Loaded with action, laughs, and great artwork this is the grooviest comic outthis week. Now someone tell Grayson that if he wants to stick around Gotham he'd better put a mask on.

The artwork is consistent with what we've been seeing from the issues so far as Eaton delivers his take on the Robins as well as an appearance from Batgirl. The teamwork from all the “Real” Robins has been great to see so farany chance the new Robins will be sticking around?

Batman And Robin Eternal #5

Nov 5, 2015

This issue tackled various story lines, all following some version of a Batman sidekick (even though Bluebird hasn't technically had the honor of being Batman's child soldier yet) with some things explained well and others left to the “just because” scenario (Bluebird tries to explain why she decided to follow, but it's not a realistic explanation). There's plenty of action this issue, but it falls short of the humor that was fused with issues prior.

Batman And Robin Eternal #6

Nov 12, 2015

This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal kicks off with some great action and delivers some chilling looks into the past. The artwork is impressive throughout out and Daniel gives fantastic representations of Batman along with his many allies. A scene towards the middle of this issue shows Batman in the middle of the two pages as the narration on either side breaks down what he knows about mother – it's here where we get the most hardboiled/noir type language in the issue. Daniel showcases Batman in the middle of the pages and determined, covered in the pouring rain, as lightning strikes in the background (it's going to be your new phone background pic). This issue is on fleek! (as the kids say).

This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal places some of the characters into pairs as Dick Grayson is once again the lone ranger, and the one most resembling the mannerisms of the Batman himself. Valentine pumps a few scenes of humor into the largely suspenseful issue as the mystery behind Mother gets even bigger. Martinez creates a lot of great scenes, but steals the show with his take on the ballet. This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal needs an encore! Do people say that for ballets?

Issue #9 of Batman and Robin Eternal brings to attention some new players in the Mother saga, as well as gives us a bit more information regarding Grayson's past alongside Batman (who is really Bruce Wayne?!). The dynamic writing duo ofJackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly keep the story filled with light-hearted humor, while showcasing a grim storyline surrounding Batman's former sidekicks. The artwork by Roge Antonio and Allen Passalaqua delivers the punches and keeps the momentum flowing, all while reminding us that Bane can still be Bane without his Venom (seriously, this guy doesn't need that stuffif you see him just rununless he's leapingthen you may just have to laugh).

Dec 11, 2015

This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal hits all the right notes. Lanzing and Kelly craft a script that gives us just enough insight into the Batman/Robin story happening in the past, along with a touch of the story happening with Harper and Grayson, but they keep the bulk of the issue invested in the most interesting and action oriented story currently taking place in the seriesRed Robin and Red Hood! The artwork byRoge Antonio, Geraldo Borges, and Allen Passalaqua delivers some eye-popping visuals (especially in the Red Robin scene mentioned above). Pasalaqua uses colors well throughout the issue to createdifferent vibes depending on the characters and situations – with Batman and Grayson/Robin in the past we see Batman brooding in the dark cave, and with Red Hood and Red Robin we see a lot of bright backgrounds and colors as they traverse the island and fight off their attackers. This issue delivers the laughs, the action, and the shark spray!

Brisson does well indelivering a high impact issue with some of the series' most graphic scenes yet. We get to see another side of the Mother saga and how an innocent bystander is impacted, even inadvertently, by her persuasions. The art team of Blanco, Duce, and Rauch craft scenes befitting to the horror taking place in the past, as Bluebird learns more than she ever thought she would about her newest friend.

Issue #12 of Batman and Robin Eternal gives us Grayson's take on what Bluebird saw happened in the past last issue. Though this issue offers a lot of the drama it misses out on some of the humor we've been able to see in other issues – most of that humor comes from Tim Drake and Jason Todd, which were both absent this issue. Bluebird is mostly absent during the issue, but appears again at the end giving us a bit of a lighthearted spin on the otherwise grim tale of the past as told by Brisson. The artwork this issue delivered some great scenes as both Pina and Sudzuka worked well to create an issue with fluent work, all made the better by the colors of Rauch.

Issue #13 of Batman and Robin Eternal gives more of the drama we've been seeing in this series. Once again it's an issue absent of Red Hood and Red Robin, so there isn't much room for comic relief (ba-doom-psh) as we witness more traumatic scenes from both Cassandra's past andpresent.Tynion doesn't hold back in his depiction of Cassandra's ascent into becoming a hero as he's accompanied by the skillful artwork ofMarcio Takara and Dean White. The action scenes by Takara are as dynamic as they are heartfelt when they need to be – the scene featuring the quote above being a prime example of that.

Issue #18 of Batman and Robin Eternaldoes well to expand on the story of Mother, both the past and present versions of it, but once again leaves the story void of the humor that's made issues before so much more enjoyable. Each character is handling the events in their own way, some of them cracking under the pressure, some staying quiet (Red Hood!).

Humor makes its way back into the series as Tim Seeley takes over on scripting. Humor isn't the only thing this issue is about, however, as we also get to see plenty of action from the former Bat-sidekicks. A great line from Grayson also reminds us who one of the most badass characters in this series is, “Cass. You're with me. Even off your rocker, you're one of the best fighters on the damn planet.” He says this in regards to Cass who is also being affected by Mother's mind-control and in need of the fear toxin. Even while facing her greatest fears right in front of her Grayson still knows she's capable of great things, that's pretty awesome. The artwork on this issue also hit a lot of high notes as we experience some brutal fight scenes and some psychedelic panels. Soooo many punches being thrownthis issue, and a pretty epic head-butt via Cass don't pick a fight with her.

ArtistsRoge Antonio and Geraldo Borges do a great job bringing the script to life and creating some hard-hitting scenes – both figuratively and quite literally (that incoming kick from Orphan looks like it's going to hurt!).The character reveal at the end is also a nice surprise and should prove to shake up the story even more! (We've been missing a level of smartass remarks that Red Hood just can't deliver quite as well as this newest addition to the series). Looking forward to the next issue of Batman and Robin Eternal!

Seeley scripts a great issue from the story by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and is only pushed to greater heights by the artwork of Ian Bertram and Dave Stewart. The beginning scene tying up with the ending is a proper call back to the events in earlier issues, but does well to not disrupt Batgirl's story taking place. This time around Batman Eternal hits a high note, it rips doorsfrom their hinges, and throws scorpions (really…scorpions!) with a story that brings the funny and action all wrapped into a wonderfully drawn comic.

Big Trouble In Little China #1

Jun 4, 2014

For those who always craved a sequel to the 1986 film this is what you've been waiting for! Those who are newcomers to the story might find themselves a bit lost as first, but are given enough clues to piece together what happened all those years ago (or a few minutes ago according to where the comic starts off). Overall this story hits all the points of nostalgia you were hoping for, it brings the funny banter as well as great visuals, and even makes sure youll want to tune into the next issue to hear what the Ol Pork-Chop Express has to say.

Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman #1

Nov 19, 2015

Issue #1 of Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman gives a lot of story in a little bit of time. Heneman shows us how Bigfoot was being used as a captive in order to help construct giant structures for a corrupt ruler, and then shows us his way out"and into another problem (big guy can't catch a break no matter what planet he's on). Taylor gets wildly creative in depicting the various different types of species that inhabit the red planet, while Bonvillain keeps the story grounded in the unforgiving dust of the desert.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1

Nov 27, 2015

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 gives the same type of gritty story you've seen previously in DKR and Strikes Again. This is a Gotham in total despair, a Gotham where the cops and villains are hard to tell apart. This is the type of Gotham that truly needs a Batman. Miller and Azzarello are able to once again create a world in despair for the Dark Knight to conquer, all while adding a modern spin on the tale. The artwork by Kubert, Janson, and Anderson is reminiscent of what we've seen before in the series, but definitely splashes in the colors when needed (a chase scene involving cops from the beginning of the issue shows the panels soaked in bright read and blue). Overall, you're going to want to get yourself a copy of this story. Looks like it's going to be a fun ride (in the Batmobile?!)

Tom King writes a dark storyline infused with witty humor and great one-liners (there's plenty of great lines when all the “real” Robins are together). The artwork this issue keeps a steady flow of talent despite the difference in styles from one artist to the next, none of which seem stifling as you turn the page (which can sometimes be the case when issues jump around so often with the artwork). Can Robin control his temper long enough to help the former Robins help the Robins? The suspense!
