Love and Respect 0

The solicit says it all. Probably should read THE BATMAN STORY OF THE YEAR. This issue deals with the events from Batman Inc. #8.This is very reminiscent of Batman #433 in the sense that it is all silent (wordless) and that we see how certain characters deal with the death of a member of the Bat Family. This issue deals with mostly Batman's reaction to the loss of his son, but it is nice to see some of Alfred's reaction as well. I think it would be great to at least have a backup story to see ho...

It's ok to want more. 0

Quick Review:I don't normally read Teen Titans and I have almost no knowledge of Tim Drake prior to the new 52. That being said, I really like this issue. These stories only work when we care about the characters that are in them. We see that he already posses almost all the skills needed to be a Robin before he even meets Batman. This issue really helps you get an understanding of how and why Drake wants to join Batman. This also the first time we see Batman object to someone wanting to join hi...

End of an Era 0

Before I give my review of the movie itself, there are a couple things I would like to point out.Firstly, I would like to remind everyone that all of these comic book movies are not made for those of us who go to our local comic book shops every Wednesday and are handed a stack of books off of our pull list. These movies are made for the masses and to bring in that money. They are never going to be true and pure representation of the characters and stories we read each and every week. That's jus...
