ForceFelicia reviewed Idolized #5 Jun 15, 2016
6.5

The series doesn't do anything groundbreaking, but it tells a nice compact story that works on pretty much each of the points it tries to hit. The main character Joule's story is a cliché, one she is aware of herself, and as such the conclusion of the story can't have been a surprise to anyone. But the way in which the story is told and illustrated, including all the ups and downs one might expec more

This doesn't really add anything of particular interest to either the Arkham line of tales or the characters in general. It's a well known story decently executed, but that's about it.

A single issue story, but that doesn't have to be bad. There isn't a whole lot here for people looking to see how Batgirl continues to evolve as a character, but as a look at her background it works well enough. The way the environments are drawn and coloured give this issue a unique look.

For people unfamiliar with the characters this is at times a highly paced issue in which the frequent swapping of costumes can be somewhat confusing. Nevertheless, the events and characters set up are a nice introduction to the mini-series and convinced me to keep reading it.

Who knew the feared Selene could be so unimpressive? After an interesting introduction at the start of the series she's been pushed aside to a surprising extent. The rest of the story is decent, but everything that happened in earlier issues is set back to the status quo that existed before the first issue. That is somewhat understandable given that this mini-series probably wasn't allowed to sign more

Is this Barbara Gordon? Even Stephanie Brown's run as Batgirl was more mature! We've had multiple Batgirls. Why not allow Barbara Gordon to move on and relaunch the series with a new girl. Maybe even someone like Misfit, who briefly donned the costume all those years ago?

The way a respectable character like Barbara Gordon has been shoehorned into this project is highly unfortunate.

Batgirl #35

In the context of this series, this issue is pretty decent. It's a shame that this was the only time Hawk & Dove went up against a somewhat original villainess. The Bat-gueststars were a welcome bonus.

This issue offers a formulaic conclusion to the series. It's nothing special but it's a merciful way to wrap things up. The series had its moments, but its cancellation was obvious.

The build-up in previous issues came to an unimpressive conclusion. It's not hard to see why this series never really took off.

The reflections on Grayson seemed out of place, and the rest of the issue is mostly irrelevant to the other storylines Batgirl is involved in. A classic filler issue.

I know Batgirl couldn't be left out of the Gothopia event, but this seemed rather nonsensical an issue and story. Perhaps it works better if you're able to laugh about it.

In this tale tying into "GOTHTOPIA," what kind of sick world pairs up Batgirl and the woman who tried to kill Jim Gordon - Knightfall?!

Given how impossible the story seemed in the preceding issue, the wrap-up here isn't even all that bad. The description of Godiva's struggles and fears are a highlight of this issue.

This issue raises the stakes in this story to ridiculous heights. Is it good? Probably not, but it's enjoyable in ways action movies can be good fun. The colourful art definitely helps.

Justice League International #4

Released: Dec 7, 2011

On their first mission, the team has been separated and defeated--or so it seems. But when a new, galactic threat shows its face, will our heroes be able to defeat it or will the whole world suffer destruction on a cosmic scale?

This issue will probably appeal more to players of the Batman: Arkham Knight video game than to a general fan of Batman comics. For the latter it doesn't do a whole lot of exciting new things, but the former will probably appreciate getting a better idea of what the Arkham Knight is all about.

There is a lot of interesting information about the background of the Arkham Knight in this issue. That's also a weakness as it's not a whole lot more than that.

I've been following this series in the hopes that the battle between Hela and Angela, foreshadowed on the first pages of issue #1, would be worth the five issue build-up. Unfortunately, it wasn't. While it succeeded in getting me to follow the series, the disappointing execution also means I have no interest in continuing with it. The writer waltzes over some of the more recognizable figures of th more
