Batman #1

The focus of the first Batman issue of the reboot seems to be to establish that he’s even more high-tech than he was before. The issue opens with a riot at Arkham and Nightwing is there, disguised as the Joker … Continue reading

Justice League International #1

Justice League International was a series once before, but what people remember is not what DC is doing with the series this time. The original series was funny, madcap, zany. It was written by Keith Giffen and managed some iconic … Continue reading

Detective #1

Detective #1 is the other comic where the renumbering really bothers me. Action was the first, but this one is just as bad. I don’t like it when companies with long histories throw that history away so they can seem … Continue reading

Green Arrow #1

Green Arrow is another of the comics where my first thought was “wow, this is a reboot!” They’ve sent GA back to his very beginnings, a wealthy gadget maker who decides to fight crime. I’m expecting future issues to show … Continue reading

Batwing #1

Wonderful, a black DC hero with his own comic. He’s not even American, he works in Sub-Saharan Africa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I’m all in favor of diversity in comics and in looking at more of the … Continue reading

Return from Thanksgiving

When Emily and I got back from our Thanksgiving trip, we found that Copper (our cat) had thrown up a few times. It is to be expected, she’s 16 1/2 years old and has some medical problems. Unfortunately, one of … Continue reading

Chase

DC has had some success recently taking older properties and turning them into TV series. They’d already turned the Human Target into a TV series and that one didn’t need much alteration as it is mostly an action/spy comic and … Continue reading

The list of bad grows

There’s another author/writer that I think I’ve given a last chance. I picked up the recent Batman/Catwoman one shot by Howard Chaykin and it is utterly uninspiring. The story just doesn’t go anywhere. Plot holes abound, characterization is all off … Continue reading
