READ RUMBLE reviewed Batman Annual #2 Dec 8, 2017
10

I don’t think I’ve given a 10 before. I don’t read Batman. I would rather read newer, more original comics than Batman beating up the same villains over and over. I heard about Tom King having Batman marry Catwoman, which struck me as a gimmick and not believable. I picked this up due to the hype. Like The Vision series this book stuck with me after reading it. It’s amazing what Tom more

Batman Annual #2

By: Tom King, Lee Weeks
Released: Nov 29, 2017

Travel back in time with us to see the early days of the Bat and the Cat. What was Bruce and Selina's first date? How did this rivalry blossom into romance, and then go right back to being a rivalry again? Tom King reteams with his BATMAN/ELMER FUDD collaborator Lee Weeks to show us a little young love with capes and cowls. And a little crimefighti...

Have a very mixed reaction to this. Started off cool with Simon and the art and I really liked how Priest showed that being in the JL is like a job with Batman acting as boss and coordinating their efforts, but as I kept reading I found myself liking the art less and what happened with the nun just didn’t really hit me emotionally and the ending was just kind of meh. I’m in for next issue to more

Hard to rate this as it appears this is going to read better as a trade. Very difficult to put a rating on this issue. Have no idea who the heck marionette or mime are. And I think it’s mistake having this be a direct sequel to end of Watchmen as it just doesn’t hold up to Alan Moore’s original story. Johns should write like Johns and not try to continue what Moore did, so overall very d more

Yes - agree. After reading this issue I feel like borrowing a line from Star Wars ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this’. I hope Johns pulls it off.

myconius - Dec 7, 2017

well said! :D i personally wish they'd gotten someone other than Johns to do this. his writing is pretty much 'Vanilla', as i imaging this to be the world he lives in from hearing him talk in interviews. doesn't sound like he has a grim or gritty bone in his body.

This book is just keeps on getting better. The aftermath WAS as good, if not even better, than the whole main story. Love how this ties not only to what's been happening in the series, but to the whole Rebirth story. Also, just how hype was the last page? The next arc is going to be a big one.

I read King’s Vision. This is on par with that. I have no idea what is going on. No way this is all real as I find it hard to believe Highfather and Forager were killed off. It’s excruciating seeing what whomever is putting Scott through this. It’s just a brutal comic. Writers who get assigned a limited run can either play it safe and make it forgettable or they can produce something t more

Another outstanding issue by King and Gerads! One of the best comics of the year in my opinion, or top 5 or 10 to say the least. Kirby would be proud of this great portrayal of one Kirby's many great creations. Can't wait for issue 5.

Had zero expectations for this series, so this is a pleasant surprise. The art is great and so is the action. Definitely interested enough to stick this out. Man, really digging all these minis DC is producing with Nightwing, White Knight, Captain Atom, Swamp Thing from earlier in the year...just fun stuff. Looking forward to the upcoming Demon mini next.

Never knew much about Ragman. Well glad I grabbed issue one of six, because issue 2 was another solid issue, and like the pace and storytelling from the great Fawkes.Art from Miranda is really solid and it gels great together. I'm really enjoying this even though I never knew much about him. So all around good book.

Part 5 of The Oz Effect seemed way too rushed. Getting Superman from disbelief that Jor-El is Oz to whole-hearted acceptance was too cheap a journey after what Oz set in motion, and the conceit that it was his staff all along that was corrupting his mind is too trite and deus-ex-machina to wipe it all away. It's cheap, lazy and insulting and out-of-nowhere non-foreshadowed writing that could have more

This issue felt a little rushed with the quick about face of Jor-El. I know it’s explained with Superman breaking his staff, but to all of a sudden switch from one panel to the next seemed far fetched. However, great issue.
