Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse #16 Review

Written by: Dan Abnett
Art by: Eduardo Francisco
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 31, 2014

Group Love


Okay, now this is what I'm talking about.  The problem with this book has been it's inconsistency.  It's been so up and down I'd like to make a joke about an elevator, but I can't think of one right now.  What I do know, however, is that things are getting better.  Besides an awful issue a couple a weeks ago, Dan Abnett has given us four good issues in five weeks including this one.  That's right, this issue is another good one.  It not only has my two favorite teams, but the return of my favorite character and the beginning of some actual story progression.  If this keeps up, I may have to start recommending this book to people.  Imagine that.

All Star Western #34 Review

Written by: Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray
Art by: Darwyn Cooke
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014

Setting Sail


All Star Western has been one of my favorite books in the New 52.  Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Jonah Hex have traveled the dusty trail, the future and beyond for over a hundred issues and this month it comes to an end.  It's a real shame because this book was so unique and fun and I'm not sure if anything out there will be able to fill the void.  We do get this final issue and I couldn't have asked for much more.  Palmiotti and Gray tie everything up perfectly while Darwyn Cooke makes everything look like an animated feature I now desperately want.  I never wanted to see this book end, but I love the way it did.

Weird Science DC Comics Week in Review 8/30/14





Hello Party People and welcome to another  a new version of DC Comics Week in Review.  I had been doing a (semi) weekly News column, but ran into a couple problems. One, I'm very lazy.  Two, there are weeks without much news.  I will never stop being lazy because as Popeye says, "I am what I am", but I'm hoping that I'll have a bit more to talk about with this format.  Here in the States it's Labor Day Weekend and that means the end of the Summer.  My kids are getting ready to go back to school and they are not ready at all.  They all had to read one book and do a report over the Summer and of course, none of them have done one bit of work.  So, what should a Father do to help?  That's right, we are all going to see Guardians of the Galaxy again this afternoon!  My fellow writer, Eric just went to see it yesterday and he loved it, of course.  I wish that DC would stop being so grim and gritty and make a fun movie...say a Legion of Superheroes or Teen Titans joint.  I know it's never going to happen, so let's get back to why we are here...

Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #3 Review

Written by: Amanda Deibert
Art by: Cat Staggs
Cover Price: $0.99

A Very Special Episode


We are still getting our feet wet with Sensation Comics, so coming into this one-shot I wasn't sure what to expect.  The appeal for me with a weekly book like this is getting different creative teams take on a character.  Gail Simone started the series by showing that Wonder Woman doesn't need to change to be relevant and in this issue, Amanda Deibert says the same thing about her fans.  I'm glad we have a book that allows us to get nice little stories like this.

Batman Beyond 2.0 #31 Review

Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 30, 2014

Exit Wounds


Boy, the Mark of the Phantasm story has been non-stop awesomeness.  Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel have given fans of Batman Beyond (and the DC Animated Universe in general) a new masterpiece.  It may sound like I'm a gushing fanboy, but if the shoe fits... This issue we see the aftermath of all the crazy events of the arc and get a few surprises as well.

DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 8/30/14

There were plenty of books this week so that of course means plenty of covers, as well.  This week's best covers are a good mix of regulars and variants and once again, I really liked a selfie cover.  It's so odd because when they announced them it seemed like a stupid idea whose time had past.  I guess I was wrong.  Next month I heard they are going to have "Teens React" covers.  I can't wait.  These are my picks for best DC Comics covers for the week ending 8/30/14.

Smallville: Continuity #1 Review

Written by: Bryan Q. Miller
Art by: Ig Guara
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 29, 2014

Adventures in Space and Time


I was a little critical of the last Smallville mini, Chaos.  It started off strong, but ended as too much of a setup than it's own story, in my opinion.  Well, since this first issue of Continuity is what it was setting up, I may have to rethink everything.  I should always remember the mantra, "In Bryan Q. we trust" and I won't get worried ever again.  It also helps that Ig Guara's art kicks ass as well.  I'll work him into the mantra real soon.

Top 5 Fridays: Top 5 Worst Jobs In The DC Universe.


This week's Top 5 Fridays is inspired by most people's three day weekend in America, thanks to the wonderful Labor Day.  Yes, while you're enjoying your time off from work, thinking about how nice it is to get out of the daily grind and possibly how much you hate your job, make sure to think about how well you have it compared to some of the jobs that exist in the DC Universe.  Yeah work sucks, but it could be so much worse.  Now people in other countries might not have this holiday, I don't know, I just know that it would take more research to find out and I'm just going to assume that they don't because this is my Labor Day weekend, so get off my back.  So if you don't know what Labor Day is, it's an American holiday that celebrates the workers of America, by giving them the day off.  You know good stuff.  So sit back and relax on your three day weekend and check out some of the shitty jobs of DC Comics with Top 5 Worst Jobs In The DC Universe.

Red Lanterns #34 Review and *SPOILERS

Written By: Charles Soule
Art By: Alessandro Vitti, J. Calafiore
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014


End of The Red War

Last time in Red Lanterns we saw the culmination of previous month's Atrocitus War stories come to a head as Atrocitus released thousands of red rings onto the angry populace of Earth.  Many battles took place and we saw Skallox switch allegiances from Gardner to Atrocitus seemingly to get back to his lady love Shadow Thief.  Now I don't remember the two having a real love connection, especially due to Shadow Thief's xenophobia, but Skallox seems to love her and now that she's a raging Red Lantern, he plans on taking her back to Atrocitus's new blood lake.  Too bad that my favorite character Zilious Zox sacrificed himself and the Red Lantern flagship, The Kaalvar to destroy Atrocitus's foothold in the galaxy.  We also saw Rankor come back to his senses when we found out that a Red Lantern parasite was controlling him and don't worry he took care of it by ripping it out of his mouth and squishing it, so Rankor is back in the mix.  In the end Bleez tried to use the blood magic to take control of all the new human raging Red Lanterns, but Atrocitus's kung-fu proved to be better and we saw a gigantic army of Reds versus Gardner and Bleez.  Yeah it's a pretty bleak ending, but let's check out this conclusion where anything can happen.

Superman #34 Review

Written by: Geoff Johns
Art by: John Romita Jr.
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014

Do Superheroes Dream of Electric Villains?


There was so much hype leading up to Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. starting their Superman run.  Three issues in and I personally think they've lived up to it.  Yes, Johns' pace is a little slower than I expected, but he's already given readers a Superman infinitely more likable than any in the series up to now.  As an added bonus, he has given Superman a nice ally and after this issue, a new mysterious villain.  I admit that I'm a Romita Jr. noob, but I've liked most of what I've seen so far.  That my friends adds up to a winner in my book.

Justice League Dark #34 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: J.M. DeMatteis
Art By: Andres Guinaldo, Walden Wong
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014


Second Star To The Right and Straight On Till Morning


Last issue of JLD we focused in on Deadman after he received a vision of the destruction of Nanda Parbat.  As you'll remember after Forever Evil: Blight, Nanda Parbat disappeared into another dimension and no matter what Boston's magical friends tried to do, they couldn't find the current location of Nanda Parbat, to check in on the mystical city.  Eventually our ever lovin' Dead Man met up with Brahma Dass, who's the re-imagined person that grants Dead Man the chance to do some good with his life and become the ghost we know him to be.  So Dead Man get's a luck dragon to ferry him to Nanda Parbat, where we found out that Brahma Dass wasn't Brahma Dass.  No this impostor turned out to be a gigantic monster known as Pantheon, that intends to destroy the mystical city, so that's not any good.  Also the rest of the JLD followed their friend and made their way sans luck dragon to Nanda Parbat and Dead Man is alive.  Yeah that's right, he's alive and well, but stuck in a dungeon.  So a lot of mixed feelings from Boston Brand.  Let's see how the JLD will save the day this month.  Let's check it out.

Catwoman #34 Review

Written by: Ann Nocenti
Art by: Patrick Olliffe
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014

WOW


Okay, the day I've been begging for has finally arrived.  Ann Nocenti's final Catwoman issue.  I know I've joked around through the (too) many issues of her Catwoman run that it may be the best/worst comic I've ever read.  It is always so unintentionally hilarious with it's awful characterizations, terrible dialogue and incomprehensible plots.  I know I'll miss the old gal in October when the new creative team takes over, but in my heart, I know it's the right thing.  At least us fans will always have this issue to remind us how god-awful this run was.

The Flash #34 Review

Written by: Robert Venditti and Van Jensen
Art by: Brett Booth
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014

Running to Stand Still



The Flash is one of my favorite characters and books.  I loved Brian Buccelatto and Francis Manapul's run so much and have been pleasantly surprised with Robert Venditti and Van Jensen's take so far.  Yes, this whole "Mash-up Killer" story is getting old and Wally West is an obnoxious ass, but I love seeing Future Flash trying to right his wrongs as the Speed Force collapses around him.  Of course, Brett Booth's art makes it easy on the eyes and worth getting all on it's own.  This issue continues everything I love and everything I'm getting tired of with The Flash.  Unfortunately, there is more of the later this Month.  It's still easy on the eyes.  Thanks Brett.

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe #16 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Dan Abnett
Art By: Pop Mhan
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014


Deja Vu


This story line began with issue #13's look into the past and the death of King Grayskull.  We learned that King Hiss disguised as one of the trusted Gar people, set up a revolt that led to the murder of the fabled King, from the hands of his most trusted handmaiden, a girl he saw as his daughter.  Now we jump to the future where Adora is trying to figure out her place in the world since she learned the truth about who she was and her journey led her to the forbidden island of Anwat-Gar, the home of the treacherous Gar people.  To make sure she got where she was going, the new Sorceress Teela sent He-Man to escort his sister and the two made their way past a Fright Zone and rescued Adora's new friend Swiftwind, as they made their way to the island.  Let's see how the siblings of power fair on an island that Eternians haven't stepped on in a thousand years.  Let's check it out.

Harley Quinn #10 Review

Art by: Marco Failla
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014

Skate and Die


The first rule of Harley Quinn (the book) is you have to enjoy yourself.  Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti make sure of that. Harley (the gal) is outrageously inappropriate and I love her for it.  It's not just fart jokes that make the book so much fun. It's the fourth wall braking pop culture references that crack me up and this issue has both and more.  Skate Club may not have any rules, but as long as it has Harley, Sy Borgman and the rest of the gang, I'm in.

Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 27, 2014


The Man Behind The Mask


Lately we've been dealing with the Helmeted Superman fighting Rampage to learn the location of Ethan Boyer and you know to stop her from rampaging and all.  Last issue we were given a huge revelation on the speculation front about the identity of this Superman, when Rampage broke the bottom of his helmet showing a white mouth and chin.  So sorry all you Val-Zod speculators.  Constantine has been searching for the robot monster Brainiac thing, or more accurately the thing that the robot monster is in search of.  On Cadmus Island the team of Fifty Sue, Grifter and Deathstroke are in search of stealth OMACs and someone who is causing glitches in Cadmus's systems.  So that's all you need to know on your current expedition into the strange land of Five Years From Now.  Let's check it out.

Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014

Wild Animals


I have enjoyed Tim Seeley's recent run on "Baternal" mainly because of the awesome team ups.  Of course, Batgirl, Batwoman and Red Hood is a match made in Heaven and could be a book on it's own, Killer Croc, Lt. Bard and Batman come in a close second.  Well, close enough.  This issue continues the fun and even adds another team and a big Spoiler.

Trinity of Sin: Pandora #14 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Ray Fawkes
Art By: Tom Derenick, Francis Portela
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014


Vampires 2: The New Batch


Last month in Pandora we took the time to watch some of Pandora's flashbacks and see Marcus Severin and her's greatest hits throughout time.  Once we got that out of the way though, we jumped right into Pandora casting a spell over Marcus's dead body so that he'll be kept from heaven and resurrected into a boy being born at that moment.  All it makes me think of is how many times Pandora has kidnapped a child from it's parents just because that child happened to be her old dead friend.  In the end after all the hoodoo we find out that Baltimore is on the verge of a vampire apocalypse and Pandora joins forces with Agent Kincaid and Giganta to take down the undead menace.  Let's see if starting a new story was the best plan for a final issue.

Cover Price: $0.99

Screaming for Vengeance


The War is on and last issue was a heartbreaking start to the casualties with Jim Gordon sacrificing himself for his Daughter's identity. Tom Taylor pulled on the heartstrings by taking advantage of his long form character building and it was so good, but so sad.  Dry your eyes, little buddies because this week we get back to a bit of the old ultra-violence.

Release Date: August 25, 2014

Justice League of the Multiverse


Infinite Crisis continues to be the most frustrating read for me each week.  It's not because it's bad.  No, then I cold just write it off and move along.  It's because it's so damn inconsistent.  I just never know what to expect.  Well, this week sticks with the team of Mecha Superman, Zatanna, Flash and Cyborg, but unlike last issue, this one is pretty good.

Written By: Justin Jordan
Art By: Brad Walker, Rodney Buchemi

Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014


Playing God


Last issue of New Guardians we saw the return of the presumed dead Kyle Rayner and it was just in time too.  For this story arc, we're exploring the re-imagining of the Psions, the lizard like creatures that the Guardians created eons ago and who have since their creators left been trying to perfect their genetics to embody the perfection of their creators.  So you know how the Guardians are tiny blue humanoids, well the Psions are nothing like that.  To try and create perfection in themselves they've altered their bodies with other species genetics and cybernetic enhancements.  So yeah gigantic cyber-reptile monsters with daddy issues.  Now it's up to Carol Ferris and Kyle Rayner to get through the Psion's maze like ship and find the Guardians of the Universe before the Psion's can do to them, what they did to the kidnapped Guardian Quaros.  Last issue we saw Quaros all kinds of hooked up to machines and he's looked better honestly.  So let's check out the conclusion to this story and see if the Guardians of the Universe and our heroes make it out of the clutches of the Psions.

Just For The Hell Of It Mondays: The Penguin



Being Batman fans, We've been given the opportunity and privilege to see a character we love in all forms of media unlike any other superhero in history and with that we've gotten to see one of the things that makes this character so great, his rogues gallery.  Now when I get to know someone who is a fan of comics or at least knows something about comics, I ask them "Who is your favorite Batman villain, other than the Joker?" and usually I get a big blank stare, or we have to have a couple more drinks so the person can think about it.  Oh I forgot to mention, I pose these questions usually at the bar, when I first start talking to some one.  So for everyone reading this think to yourself or say out loud I don't care, which Batman villain is your favorite other than the Joker?  I've asked myself this question a lot in my life and the one villain I keep coming back to other than Two-Face, is the Penguin.

Batman '66 #41 Review

Written by: Jeff Parker
Art by: Craig Rousseau
Cover Price: $1.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014

Highly Illogical


Jeff Parker finishes his two part Bat Robot story this week and it's good fun, but also a poke at all of us who are slaves to technology. Give us hell, Jeff.

I mentioned in my review for Batman '66 #40 that I was waiting for things to go horribly wrong with the Bat Robot.  It's a robot designed with the help of a criminal, for Pete's sake.  I had visions of the Joker taking it over and wreaking havoc throughout Gotham. Boy was I wrong.  Jeff Parker does one better by making the Bat Robot (I still like calling it the BatBot) a victim of it's own design.

Batman '66 #40 Review

Written by: Jeff Parker
Art by: Paul Rivoche
Cover Price: $1.99
Release Date: August 6, 2014

Danger, Will Robinson


Jeff Parker returns to Batman '66 and he brings a pretty cool friend with him.  Seriously, a Batman Robot is a little boy's dream come true and while I'm far from a little boy anymore, the thought of it takes me back.  While I'm sure that not everything is as great as it seems, Jeff Parker gives fans a fun start to a new arc.

The issue starts off with the Clock King, so you know we're in for fun.  It gets even better as Clock King gets offended that an Art Dealer insinuates that he's only interested in time pieces...and then he steals the guys watch!  Great job Jeff Parker.

Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #2 Review

Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014

(Non)Identity Crisis



I was a bit harsh in my review of Sensation Comics #1, but that wasn't because I didn't like it per se.  What upset me was the focus. For a Wonder Woman book, the issue seemed to be hijacked by the Gotham Rogues with Wonder Woman trying to be too much like Batman.  Well, we get the second part this week and Gail Simone shows that she had a plan all along (of course she did!) and makes me not only love this issue, but appreciate last week's as well.

DC Comics Covers of the Week 8/24/2014

I know the old saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover", but that isn't the case with comic books, or is it?  I know a cover doesn't guarantee quality or even a story that matches it, but a great cover certainly peeks a buyers interest when it's sitting there on a shelf. These are my picks for the best DC Comics covers for the week of August 24, 2014.





Cover of the Week: Multiversity #1 (Burnham Cover Variant Edition)


Seriously, I can't look at this cover without smiling. Captain Carrot alone makes this the cover of the week, but put him in a crazy version of the most iconic cover ever and this may be the cover of the year.  Chris Burnham nails it and sets the tone for the craziness that is Multiversity.

Batman Beyond 2.0 #30 Review

Written by: Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel
Art by: Phil Hester
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 23, 2014

Better Off Dead?


Mark of the Phantasm has been a Tour de Force for fans of the Batman Animated Universe.  Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel have produced such a great story by cherry picking some great moments and expanding upon them to make them even better.  I have loved every minute of it.  This week we get the penultimate issue of the arc and it takes a bit of a dark turn that is a shame, but really sets up for an emotional and explosive finale.

Last issue ended with Terry arriving to save Jake and finding him in full out Joker Gas mode.  If you expected Terry to just call it even and leave, you would be wrong.  What kind of hero would that make him?  As he tries to rescue Jake, Bruce informs him that the Phantasm is on her way.  I love Terry's reaction

If you have read my past reviews, you know that I'm a huge Smallville Fanboy.  It's been such a consistently great book from Season 11 to the many awesome minis that followed.  This issue ends the Chaos arc and while it's been entertaining, something about it has been bothering me since it started.  I think I finally have put my finger on that something.

Top 5 Fridays: MULTIVERSITY EDITION Top 5 DC Comics' Elseworld Stories


This week's Top 5 Fridays is inspired by Grant Morrison's Multiversity, that hit shelves this week and made me think of all my favorite Elseworld stories and I figured I can't always be dumping superhero costumes all over your sweet faces.  Yeah that sounded weirder than I would of liked, but no regrets people!  Just look forward and continue with what you were doing.  While none of these picks that you're about to read will ever be as odd as what Grant Morrison is going to give us for his Mulitversity run, I still think they ought to be mentioned and thought about as we dive deep into the Multiverse.  Hell a lot of these picks are probably some of your favorites because when you come right down to it, comic book consensus is pretty straight forward with what's great and what's shit.  But who knows, maybe I have shitty taste.  Let's find out as we dive into this week's Top 5 Fridays: MULTIVERSITY EDITION Top 5 DC Comics' Elseworld Stories.......... I'm always saying dive, I think I might have a subconscious pool fetish...... Weird.

Late to the Party

I took this book from Eric this month because it is a Doomed chapter.  In fact, it's Superman Doomed [Last Sun] chapter 3 The Girl Who fell to Earth.  Don't get me started on DC's naming conventions for this event because they are so convoluted and just awful.  You know what else is awful?  This book.  It's not a good Supergirl issue at best and an awful and awfully outdated Doomed chapter at worst.  It really has no reason to exist.

Red Hood and The Outlaws #34 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Scott Lobdell

Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014


Thank You, But Our Princess Is ON A MURDER RAMPAGE!


Last issue of Red Hood and The Outlaws was a Starfire heavy issue, dealing with a bit of her back story, like how she apparently ran an intergalactic underground railroad, freeing slaves across the galaxy.  Once we got out of flashback territory we jumped to Abu Dhabi, where we found out that apparently all the scum of the universe hang out in human disguises and Starfire is looking for blood.  Luckily she came across one of her old torturers, so the whole blood thing might work out.  Oh and Arsenal and Red Hod got their asses handed to them by Man-Bat, but that really didn't do anything for the story, except make me giggle.  Let's check out where Starfire's rampages take her this month.
