By: Cynthia A. Nightwing #25 One Dark City Night This Nightwing issues is a Zero Year tie-in and follows the star Dick Grayson as he discovers what a hero he is…once he pulls his head out of his arse that is. The story takes place right as Batman begins to make his presence known in Gotham when Nightwing still had parents and was the star of the Hayley Circus, letting everyone know it.  So the point of this issue to show growth []

Week 42 2013 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews

Worlds Finest #16 Burning Questions Usually I love Silva’s artwork, but in this issue, not so much.  The lining on the facial expressions was wacky as was the shadowing.  It wasn’t good which was disappointing.  But luckily the writing more than made up for it.  The beginning launches the reader is an adventure with Helena, aka Huntress, as she makes her way through a burning building to do some research.  Where’s a bat cave when you need one?  Or at a cat []

Week 28 2013 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews

Earth 2 #14 Battle Cry Dr. Fate, Flash and Green Lantern of Earth 2 are teaming up to fight Steppenwolf with the Worlds Army, or rather taking the initiative so that the World’s Army can at least attackSteppenwolf, former henchman of Darkside. That being said, it was a fun issue because here is where the heroes really start acting like a team together, planning an attack and attack formations. That was just awesome and how it opened up with them flying into []

Week 24 2013 | Pt. 2

Worlds Finest #13 Hide & Seek This Karen is so much better than she previously was especially now that her origin is being hammered out and established versus ever changing.  She’s sarcastic, funny and her personality can be childish sometimes, but not in a bad away.  Her costume has returned to the original costume with a few tweeks here and there, making her look good in the costume versus some image that was completely unrealistic unless she got implants.  But that’s my []

Week 22 2013 | Pt. 2

Superman #20 WHAM! Well that was certainly interesting seeing Orion and Superman go head to head. Personally I love Orion so seeing him give Superman a run for his money was pretty cool. The Hector Hammond sub plot however was just a little dumb. I expected to see Hector in Green Lantern, not here and the way he was affecting everyone in the previous issue was just stupid. What was the point to it? Where was the motivation? Hector has always been []

Week 14 2013

I know!  I’m super late on this one.  College life here at Emerson College has gotten really hectic unfortunately.  But, alas, that is college life.  Enjoy readers! Earth 2 #11 The Tower of Fate Part 2: The Man Who Was Brave The biggest issue here in the change in design of Orion, the son of Highfather.  He looks too much like Red Tornado which is bothersome.  There was a lot of ingenuity in the design of the original Orion.  As far as writing goes, it was really []

Week 6 2013

Phantom Stranger #5 Noble Revenge I swear, everything about this comic echoes the story of Judas and Jesus, I find it difficult to think otherwise, and it’s because of that aspect of the story that I love.  The hint at a religious text incorporated into a comic book and given a twist is amazing.  It offers a great plot and amazing character development and interesting insights into what the trinity of sin.  It’s also interesting to see how the Spectre plays into []

Week 2 2013 Pt. 1

Batman Detective Comics #16 Nothin’ But Smiles All right, as interesting as this issue was, it was missing something: Mr. J. However, the chaos that his very name insights was brilliant. For me, it gave a lead into the Jokerz that exist in Batman Beyond. That is what I loved about this issue. However, I thought that the plot in this issue was a little shaky, and Emperor Penguin? Really? I thought that it was a bit overdone, and I feel as []

Week 36 2012

Earth 2 #0 The Beginning of the End It was nice to see the trinity again, fighting together, before the war.  This is a great issue that shows what has happened in earth 2, what has led up to this moment.  This is a great comic and I loved this comic.  The creation of the trinity and how they were written into this was well done.  They are more akin to those pre-reboot.  It’s great.  But it makes me miss them even []
