Week 22 2014 | Part 1 | Comic Book Reviews


Check out the latest reviews on two of DC’s latest comics: Nightwing #30 and Aquaman #31. This is the final issue of Nightwing and it did not go out with a bang I’m sad to say, as for Aquaman, it was also bit disappointing. Read on to see my side.

DC Universe vs. Masters of the Universe #5 Worlds Collide Well, this issue certainly answered all the questions about why Orko is evil now.  Back in the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe miniseries, where Skeletor had brainwashed everyone and ruled Eternia, turns out little Orko had been trying to be a hero but, as   it always happened, his spell backfired on him and he became the most evil and most powerful sorceress in the realm. Poor little Orko. Anyway, Skeletor []

By: Cynthia A. Nightwing #28 Butterfly Effects So I just heard that DC Comics is cancelling this series!  Anyway, in this issue, Nightwing is living his life in Chicago, working at the diner by day and fighting crime by night.  But then a villain comes hunting down Nightwing because he’s dying and it is inadvertently Nightwing’s fault.  This sends a torrent of thoughts through his mind, especially when he sees Sonia, Tony Zucco’s daughter.  He sees the ramifications of his actions, and []

By: Cynthia A. Batman and Robin Annual #2 Batman and Robin: Week One I miss Damien!  Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.  But anyway, in this annual, it starts off with a beautiful flashback between Damien and Dick then swings to the present as Bruce is cleaning up and find a box that has a note and label (“The Robin Cave” – if you ask me “The Nest” sounds cooler), that causes Bruce to call Dick and ask what it’s all about.  This []

By: Cynthia A. Damien: Son of Batman #3 (of 4) Book Three: If Animals Could Talk Well that was certainly an odd issue.  Really good, but very odd.  If you’ve been following, you know that Batman is dead.  But not Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson.  Yup, he is dead due to a Joker Bomb.  There was no way to save him, so Damien went on a killing spree, cause you know, he is the son of Talia.  Bruce wasn’t happy about that, they []

By: Cynthia A. Batman and Two-Face #25 The Big Burn: Sparks DC psyched me out once again!  I thought this was going to be a lead in, a foreshadowing issue that would eventually pave the way for Carrie Kelley to become the next Robin.  She did tutor Damien Wayne after all and would wear the uniform with honor.  But this seems to have changed.  I think DC is screwing with me. But that’s beside the point!  Over all, this was a decently []

By: Cynthia A. Teen Titans Annual #2 My Future, My Enemy Okay, so this future cannot be the future of earth 1 because as events are right now, Gar is red, no longer green, and Rose was stabbed to “death” by her own father.  So again, not sure what exactly was happening in this issue.  It felt rushed, as though the author was trying to shove as much information into these 44 pages.  It didn’t work.  This was a letdown, another let []

By: Cynthia A. Teen Titans #24 Caught Up In Circles That was certainly a ride.  I mean that was kind of a trippy issue.  The events of this issue pick up after Forever Evil #2 where they encountered Johnny Quick and Atomica who sent them back to the future.  The question is where.  What Lobdell has done here is sent them traveling through time, like Sliders.  Do any of you remember that show?  It ran for five seasons and it was really []

Batman and Two-Face #24 The Big Burn: First Strike Woah, when I read this I was not expecting to have the origin of Two-Face thrown in there.  But it sure as heck was a good twist.  All right, so it looks like the writers are setting it up for Carrie to be the new Robin.  That is how it is looking anyway.  You have this villain who has her same red hair and who is connected to Two-Face, in a way that []
