I am a fan of DC Universe’s first season of Titans. I posted my proof of this here. I also didn’t mind that the first season ended at eleven episodes instead of the planned twelve, because the news accompanying this revelation was that we were getting a second season. That’s always great news with any […]Read more "Titans: Season 2 Premiere: Ep. 2.1 “Trigon” — a review"
I very nearly washed my hands of this series early during the second season. I’ll explain why, and then let you know why I didn’t. I enjoyed Season 1 of Krypton, which did a deep dive into Superman’s science fiction roots by focusing on Kal-El’s grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), beginning at a time before Jor-El, […]Read more "Krypton: Season 2 — a review"
I am not fully invested in DC’s Rebirth. I’m still playing catchup with the various Crisis stories, Flashpoint, and the New 52. However, I did read this first volume in the new spate of Batman stories. I have my reasons. Reason #1: This book was available to check out, without paying anything extra, on the […]Read more "Batman (2016-) Vol. 1: I Am Gotham — a comic book review"
The right thing to write, I guess, is that this was a landmark series that forever changed DC Comics. Not to be a contrarian, but this limited-series of seven issues didn’t exactly rock my world. Was it good? Mos’ definitely. Was it great? Not by a long shot. That’s my review in a nutshell. Shall […]Read more "Infinite Crisis, by Geoff Johns, Phil Jimenez, George Perez, Jerry Ordway, Ivan Reis, and Andy Lanning—a comic book review"
This is a review of the novelization of the “Knightfall” storyline that spanned an entire year of Batman comics during 1993-1994. Actually, three separate storylines: “Knightfall”, “Knightquest”, and “KnightsEnd”. The novel itself was first published in 1994, some twenty-five years ago as I write this review. So . . . not exactly a timely review. […]Read more "Batman: Knightfall, by Dennis O’Neil — a book review"
I’ve read exactly one of Brad Meltzer’s novels. This was The Book of Lies, which attempted to tie the biblical story of Cain-and-Abel to the murder of Jerry Siegel’s father, and thus to the creation of the grandfather of all superheroes, Superman. From this, I knew he had a connection to the world of comic […]Read more "Identity Crisis, by Brad Meltzer & Rags Morales — a comic book review"
If you’ve had anything to do with any DC Comics property during the last eight years or so—including comics, video games and the CW shows—you’ve heard about Flashpoint. I think Flashpoint Batman was offered as an alternate skin in one of the Arkham games (probably Arkham Knight), and I really didn’t know what that […]Read more "Flashpoint, by Geoff Johns & Andy Kubert — a comic book review"
