Sadly it seems readers fall into two categories. There are some who want to do no work, seek threadbare stories with gratuitous violence and repeat the experience over and over. That's probably why they see comics as purely a visual medium, that is about the art, the colour, the implied movement. It's like a steady diet of purely action blockbusters. The other group of readers want great stories p more

There are strange goings-on in the dark alleys of Gotham City, mysteries that will require a different skill set than the Caped Crusader's if he's going to stop the whole city from succumbing to the darkness. John Constantine, the Hellblazer, is a person with just those skills-but after the events of "The Witching Hour," is Constantine in any condi...

Issue 1 left me somewhat underwhelmed but Morrison is not a one issue writer so patience is needed. Luckily issue 2 was only a short wait. The good writers turn themselves into students of the title.

So far this series is laying some pretty impressive groundwork. It is highly character driven. What surprised me the most is that while we are all comfortable with Batman bettering "super powered" adversaries by his wits alone, we find the thought of Harley Quinn doing the same incongruous. Credit Tom King with some impressive writing which both intrigues, drops clues and keeps us off balance. H more

Kudos to Bermejo. The art alone is more than worth the cost of this issue. Azzarello has laid the foundations for a psychological thriller. This is great graphic art storytelling. The only disappointment is that the reviews are fixated on a couple of panels that really did not need to be there. So stop fixating on Batman's penis and appreciate art and story that simply stand out in today's comic l more

Many years ago I got hooked into the Sandman Universe. Visually spectacular along with the brilliant Neil Gaiman's excellent narrative.This reincarnation feels like an attempt by DC to resurrect their mystery, fantasy and horror titles from the 50's and 60's (House of Mystery, House of Secrets and this newly created House of Whispers) on the back of Gaiman's ideas.
