Be careful with those old issues of Batman Family. Apparently DC only includes the lead story from those issues with the digital purchase. Those were 100-page books that had multiple features, so...

Thank you, and likewise of course. I've never really bought into the "Bruce Wayne is a mask" idea - one area where I part ways with the O'Neil-era interpretation. To me the whole point of the...

Ellis can, at times, be challenging - it's even more pronounced with his prose, because you can never tell how much of the outrageous stuff is intended to be taken literally.

I had some coherence...

It's similar. The ComiXology reader is IMO superior. The resolution is better, particularly on a later-model iPad. Unlimited's not bad by any means, but the resolution on the ComiXology reader is...

It was okay. Didn't blow me away but entertained me enough that I will watch again next week.

Funny you mentioned the Australian thing - my daughter jumped all over that immediately.

I enjoyed Rucka's run, with some caveats. Visually it was very distinct, with the muted color pallette, and I always thought that worked really well. There are a couple of issues in that run in...

Book of the Week - September 17

Tough week to judge - Id've found it hard to believe anything would top Multiversity but Supreme Blue Rose #3 pulled it off. Ellis has really taken the Alan Moore ball and run with it. Tula Lotay's...

Marvel Comics This Week - September 17

Avengers #35 jumps forward eight months to a dramatically-altered landscape. I'm not clear on whether this is an actual or a possible future, but essentially the crux of it is that SHIELD has, for...

The second issue was better than the first, and the first was outstanding. Morrison's comics have such a unique cadence and rhythm to them - I know that sounds weird as a descriptor for a printed...

DC Comics This Week - September 17

The Spoiler moves front and center in Batman Eternal #24, while Batman fights Dr. Double-X (except he's not called that yet). Some interesting touches this issue - I particularly like the idea of...

This is a very good point. Marvel was brought up earlier in the thread, and yea they do have a sliding scale, but they've been very careful to keep the characters who were actually being published...

Bullock's Law is not as strong as Gordon's Law. It was an oversized one-shot, one of several published during No Man's Land to satisfy the demand for more traditional Batman stories. It's set...

Okay. Thank you for the reply. And again, my issue wasn't so much with the thread turning into Iteration #96735 of "DC: Threat or Menace?" - that's really none of my business or concern - as with...

I tried a couple of times to get into The Wake but just couldn't. It wasn't the ending, either - I didn't make it anywhere near that far. It felt like there were some interesting ideas but they...

BTW few tips for anyone diving into the NML stuff -

The Azrael: Agent of the Bat issues are completely skippable. They have nothing at all to do with the overarching plot and aren't very good. ...

Look for a "Gotham"-themed sale next week, featuring all of Gotham Central, some various GCPD-centric books, and (for some reason) the No Man's Land storyline.

Also I believe IDW has a GI Joe sale...

Book of the Week - September 10
