Batman #70 - Review

The last arc, Knightmares, was a bit controversial. For some, it was paced a bit slowly and felt disjointed. Personally, I did not have any qualms with it. Those who didn’t quite take to Knightmares, however, should respond to the beginning of this latest arc positively.

DCeased #1 - Review

Everyone needs a turn with a zombie run. I am a bit surprised that it has taken so long for DC to have their version, but Tom Taylor sets up a unique twist on the genre. Thanks to Darkseid, a perverted version of the Anti-life Equation runs amok, spreading like wildfire through digital communications. Didn’t ever see this coming as a possible way to introduce zombies into the DCU, but it’s a fantastic way to utilize existing DC lore and turn it on its head.

Detective Comics #1001 - Review

First teased at the end of Detective 1000, we are introduced to the Arkham Knight and a legion of knighted followers. When a new Bat-villain is introduced, the villain either needs to make a meaningful impact quickly or have a buildup that is protracted over many issues. If it’s the latter, then amazing payoff is a must. The challenge in that slow buildup is it can oftentimes not feel like it was worth it. In the case of this issue, it is the former.
