“Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.”

By far the best Batman movie out there, The Lego Batman Movie is awesome for so many reasons. Focusing on who the character is, in such a playful way, the writers understood what makes Batman such a strong character and a fan favorite character. He’s always had his head up his tushie, and this film uses that element to make the film so funny. But then there are those sadder moments, the moments that reflect on the past and the defining moment that makes Batman who he is. The writers understand Batman better than I’ve seen in such a long time. Then there is that classic dynamic he has with Joker. This film nailed that relationship, that very toxic and twisted relationship, with perfection! Not since The Dark Knight has their relationship been so clearly and wonderfully established to build up this duo that has been the cause of so many iconic comic book moments.

By: Cynthia A. The Flash #27 History Lessons Part One As long as Party and Barry are still together, I think that I will be fine.  Anyway, in this last issue, a mass grave full of bodies that may have been the result of one serial killer. But the problem is that some of those victims were reported missing after years after the man was … Continue reading Week 7 2014 | Part 1 | Comic Reviews

By: Cynthia A. Green Lantern: New Guardian #27 Keeper So are the writers here trying to put Kyle and Carol together since Carol and Hal broke up…again.  It sure seems that way, especially in this last issue with the pair of them repaying a favor to the Keeper who had been the guardian of the Anomaly that was Relic. The Keepers home is being corrupted … Continue reading Week 5 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews

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 … Continue reading Week 3 2014 | Part 4 | Comic Reviews

By: Cynthia A. Red Hood and the Outlaws #25 The Beckoning Dark That was great.  Awesome in fact.  This is an issue that I can read and re-read repeatedly.  In fact, I read it twice already.  It was just so powerful, especially after everything that happened in the Death of the Family story line (a story arc that will go down in history!)  But anyway, … Continue reading Week 48 2013 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews

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 … Continue reading Week 48 2013 | Part 1 | Comic Reviews
