Black Canary #10 review

The Birds are back in town. Black Canary and Batgirl are hanging out, fighting bad guys and exploring mysteries in the best issue yet of Dinah’s soon-to-end series. It could be argued that as Black Canary is the name of Dinah’s band, as well as her codename, this is as much their book as hers, […]

Batman/Superman #25 review

Superman came to Gotham City on a motorcycle, but he leaves courtesy of borrowed Bat-technology. And he can’t resist putting the wind up Robo-Batman Jim Gordon as he leaves.  The previous page is the last we see of the current holder of the Batman title in this issue of Batman/Superman, but I’m fine with that – Gordon […]

Grayson #12 review

It’s fair to say this is the issue I’ve been waiting for, as Dick Grayson returns to Gotham City and lets his friends know he’s alive. Well, all except Bruce Wayne, who’s currently a new man, free of any memory of his life as Batman. That situation makes for a compelling opening scene as Dick, […]

All credit to writer Tim Seeley and artist Ian Bertram for a story that reads and looks like nothing else in the Batman universe.   Oh sure, its use […]

Batman Eternal #4 review

Three weeks ago I wasn’t sure whether Batman Eternal was going to become a weekly purchase. Well, I’ve just finished the fourth issue and next week can’t come fast enough. Because this is a cracking read, with strong, colourful characters fleshing out a plot that twists and turns through the concrete canyons of Gotham with […]

Batgirl #23 review

Batgirl’s wannabe partner the Grey Ghost is dead, killed by the Reavers, a secret society of college students with tech suits granting enhanced abilities. This issue we see more of them than ever – especially in the case of one who generates copies of himself – as they engineer a prison breakout. With other Gotham […]
