Batman: Eternal #20 Review

Written by: Tim Seeley
Art by: Emanuel Simeoni
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.

Injustice: Year Two #21 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor
Art by: Mike S. Miller
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 26, 2014

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.

Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse #15 Review

Written by: Dan Abnett
Art by: Tom Derenick
Cover Price: $0.99
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.

Green Lantern: New Guardians #34 Review and *SPOILERS*

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.

Futures End Event 3D Cover Preview: Week One 9/3/14

The Futures End Event is just around the corner so I thought I would preview the 3D covers that will have fans shelling out big bucks for.  The first week of the event has some of the books I'm really looking forward to like Grayson and Action Comics.  We also learn that five years in the future, Batwing is no longer canceled.  Here are the covers:

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

Written by: Gail Simone
Art by: Ethan Van Sciver
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

Not the End


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.

Supergirl #34 Review

Written by: Tony Bedard
Art by: Karl Moline
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014

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
Art By: RB Silva, Cory Smith
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.

Art By: Jesus Merino, Dan Green
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 20, 2014


We've Got Answers People!!!!!


Okay for this recap you'll need to know that Stormwatch was killed off with the exception of Hawkman and SHADE sent out Ray Palmer, Amethyst and Frankenstein to find out what happened.  Frankenstein now has one of Hawkman's arms attached to him and the Nth metal is changing him and he even slept for the first time causing him to have visions of an awful future.  Hawkman, Amethyst and Frankenstein crash landed on an alien planet looking for a surviving Stormwatch member and we found out that Brainiac has taken over The Engineer and imprisoned our three heroes.  An evil geneticist named Ethan Boyer has escaped from prison and has made Rampage rampagier to keep Superman busy as he sets up shop again in Metropolis.  On Cadmus Island a mysterious stealth OMAC attacked Grifter and Fifty Sue and him decide to hunt it down only to find out that there are more things going wrong on Cadmus Island.  Maybe since Mister Miracle escapes his cell all the time, he'll figure out what the problem is first.  Or maybe he's the one causing it.  Let's get to this issue because we're finally given some answers to the questions that have been plaguing us.

Batwoman #34 Review

Release Date: August 20, 2014

Done and Done


I begged Marc Andreyko not to do it.  Granted, he has no idea who I am and my mind powers aren't as effective as I'd like, but I still begged him.  Creative teams have quit and fans have stormed the message boards in support of Kate and Maggie as a couple.  Now it appears to be over.  It breaks my heart, but I do have to admit that the reason Kate ends it is unselfish and great, but it doesn't hurt any less.  Maybe after Futures End September it will be revealed that it's all a dream.  I beg you Marc Andreyko.

Teen Titans #2 Review and *SPOILERS*

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



Bunker and Beast Boy #1


Last issue we saw the relaunched Teen Titans take down a terrorist group that hijacked a bus of children and planned on driving the bus now full of explosives into the New York STAR Labs.  Pretty much the issue felt like a weak start to the series.  Yeah the team saved the day, but they only took out masked mooks and the head of the terrorists got away in the end.  After reading this issue it seems that the only thing that really mattered to last issue besides the planned attack on STAR Labs, is that Bunker threatened a homophobic asshole at the end of the issue and the DC interwebs went nuts with people uploading and re-chirping the video.  So let's dive into this issue and see if our heroes have a more super heroic feel than last.

Dream a Little Dream



There are sometimes when I can't figure out a comic and it drives me insane.  Call me crazy, but I don't enjoy feeling like a dummy.  I get that enough in my everyday life.  There are other times when I can't figure out a comic and I love it.  Infinity Man and the Forever People is the later.  I'm having too much fun reading it and Dan Didio and Keith Giffen are opening a whole new world for me to enjoy with them.  It's kind of like the difference between laughing with me or laughing at me.  Didio and Giffen are laughing with me...at least I hope so.

Family Reunion


Last issue of Batman and Robin we saw our Caped Crusader go up against the Justice League to retrieve a Batsuit meant for battling the forces of Apokolips, aptly named The Hell Batsuit.  But our hero was overpowered and he returned home to the Batcave, but instead of simply giving up and eating Alfred's soup, we see that he's called the entire Bat Family to his aid.  So get ready to have Red Hood, Red Robin and Batgirl join us for Robin Rises Part 2.  Let's check it out.

Peeling Back The Layers of Confusion


It's time to take a trip throughout the New 52 Multiverse and to do so we'll being shucking and jiving through the mind of Grant Morrison "The Man of Layers" to do it.  Now it seems that's I'm in the minority here because I wasn't a fan of of Morrison's run on Action Comics, but the good news is that my favorite of his issues was dealing with the Superman of Earth-23 and now we're finally back to dealing with him and countless others for this behemoth of a comic.  Months ago I would of sworn that this series was never going to happen, but I'm glad I was wrong because I love the Multiverse and hopefully we can peel back those layers to Morrison's mind and come out knowing what the hell we read.  Let's check it out.

Justice League United #4 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Jeff Lemire
Art By: Mike McKone, Cam Smith
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 13, 2014



Remembering A Hawkman


When we last saw the JLU team, the main zeta beam had taken some damage which caused a problem making Adam Strange and his girlfriend Alanna to be zeta-ed back and forth with each other and to solve the problem the Rannian's zeta-ed Alanna back to Earth to get her out of the equation.  Martian Manhunter got into the mind of the Ultra baby that had grown to an Ultra toddler and convinced the genetically engineered weapon that the JLU were it's friends and in the end Hawkman made the ultimate sacrifice by taking the damaged core of the zeta beam high into the sky, so that when it finally exploded it wouldn't harm any civilians or his new team.   So we're left with Byth escaping with Lobo and Hawkman dying.  Well we'd think that if we hadn't already seen him regenerate two missing arms and come back from the dead, between this and Futures End.  So don't worry Hawksters, I wouldn't count our winged warrior out just yet.  Okay let's check out what this month has in store for us with Justice League United.

Injustice: Year Two #20 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor
Art by: Bruno Redondo
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 19, 2014

I've Got Something In My Eye


Injustice: Year Two has been all about the slow burn build up towards the inevitable War between Team Batman and Team Superman. While people have complained that this Year hasn't had the crazy action of Year One, I've enjoyed the character building that Tom Taylor has given fans.  Well, the War is on and Taylor is still working more character moments than deaths and it's paying off.  Last issue we got Hal Jordan becoming a Yellow Lantern. It was so good because it made so much sense in the context of the book. This issue continues the trend and instead of shocking, it's a heart felt tear jerker.  It's also one of the best issues of Year Two so far.

Who Cares?


When we last left Earth-44 a couple of issues ago, the Team of Flash, Cyborg, Zatanna and Mecha Superman were up against the behemoth, Arcane Doomsday.  The thing was is beast mode after demolishing Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Shazam without breaking a sweat.  It looked real bad for everyone on Mecha Earth.  However, Mecha Supes gave us a little "this is our Independence Day" moment and the team looked ready to fight Doomsday to the Gates of Hell if need be.

Shazam!


I know that most of you reading this right now are not little kids.  I am far from a little kid, myself.  You know why I love Tiny Titans?  Because it makes me feel like a little kid again.  Yes, I enjoy the New 52 with it's mature story lines and dark and gritty heroes, but sometimes I like to lay on the floor, kick my feet up and read Tiny Titans.  If I had enough hair, I'd probably twirl it as I read.  I guess if you have kids, you could also get this book for them, but do yourself a favor and read it with them.

Weird Science DC Comics News: Week of August 13, 2014 Edition

Hi there party people.  Welcome to another edition of Weird Science DC Comics News.  I have been pretty lazy the past couple of weeks, but there also hasn't been a ton of news.  Well, I'm back and ready to report on stories that everyone already has.  I'm good like that.  In personal news, I'm having Beans on Toast for lunch and then Chili for Dinner. So, if you are in the Quakertown, PA area and see a brown gaseous cloud...run!  I know that I write about food all the time, but I had the new McDonald Shake Fries yesterday.  I had the Ranch and my son, Raef, had the Buffalo.  Mine tasted like Ranch Doritos which I'm a fan of, but by the end of the bag, I was pretty sick of them.  Raef liked his even though they were a bit too spicy for him.  Overall, I'd give the Ranch a 6/10 and Raef gave the Buffalo an 8/10.  I am allergic to garlic so I can't have the Parmesan Garlic flavor, but Raef is going to try them next week.  If anyone from McDonalds is reading this, when are we going to get real flavors like Cheddar Cheese, Bacon and Cheese, Nacho Cheese and BBQ? Get on it, guys!  What?  You didn't come here to hear about Shake Fries?  Okay...

Batman: The Jiro Kuwata Batmanga #5 Review

Written and Illustrated by: Jiro Kuwata
Translated by: Sheldon Drzka
Cover Price: $1.99
Release Date: August 16, 2014

Mount Batman


In the last issue of Batmanga, mild mannered Dr. Denton's skin regeneration machine went horribly wrong, destroying his face in the process.  He then went mad, destroying anything with a face around Gotham.  Batman and Robin tried stopping him, but the issue ended with the Dynamic Duo almost being killed by a booby trap set by...Dr. Faceless!

Jiro Kuwata's Batmanga is a whole bunch of campy fun.  I've said it before and I'll repeat it, this book is a mix of Batman '66 and an old radio serial put through a Japanese manga blender.  Jiro Kuwata may not have had a full grasp of the characters when doing these issues, but that's all part of the fun.  Being a big Robin fan, I love his tough and in-charge version of the Boy Wonder.  On the flip side, it's neat to see a Batman who isn't always on top of everything.  Kuwata's Batman is a bit soft, often scared, but still gets the job done. It always keeps me smiling while reading.  That and the crazy stories.

Written by: Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel
Art by: Phil Hester
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: August 16, 2014

Phantastic


This week's issue of Batman Beyond has so much to live up too.  Seriously, last week was the best issue of this series and one of the most shocking and satisfying reads I've had in a while.  Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel are smart fellas and don't try to top last week, but calm things down just a bit.  That's not saying it's filler or unnecessary because that's far from the truth.  We get some pretty big revelations and a cliffhanger that sets up this final part of the story to be something special.

I'm Bleeding


I am such a huge fan of the Smallville comic.  If you ask me, a bad issue of Smallville is better than a lot of other comics best.  Until this week, that is. Something weird is happening.  As we get closer to the conclusion of the current Chaos mini series, the issues are getting worse not better.  That is not a good trend at all.

Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 13, 2014

Dark Night for the...


With Zero Year just ending and the Futures End Event coming up in weeks, Batman (the book) takes a little break with a one-shot by Gerry Duggan and Matteo Scalera.  Taking a break doesn't mean that this issue is not important because it feels like it has some weight to it. It's also really dark and damn good.  I hate to say it, but it's also nice for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo to get a break too.  They've been working hard for a while and we don't want them getting burned out now do we?  Batman (the hero) doesn't rest, so while Snyder and Capullo are off on some tropical island, the book is in good hands.
