Scott Snyder’s penultimate issue to the Owls storyline is here and what he has done is craft such a compelling issue that it seriously will join my list of favorite single issues ever. The way he has gone and taken a character referenced as far back as the 70’s and brought them into permanent Batman mythos truly is remarkable. Who is behind the Owls attack? I promise you you will not be disappointed in any way.
On a side note I am a fan of Greg Capullo’s art but he has outdone himself with this issue. Every rotting column, every facial expression just bleeds out on the paper and makes an already great story extraordinary.
Catch up with this series and read this issue!!
Batman and Robin #10
Geriatric looking Terminus has rounded up past nobodies who were maimed or severely injured by Batman to complete his plan to kill the Dark Knight. Damian continues his douchery by saying he will take on all three previous Robins to prove he is the best of them all and he starts with Tim Drake.
New story kicks in this month with Barbara examining exactly why she has donned a cape and cowl and if it is for the right reasons. Fights in a parking deck with car thieves, bear traps, amputations and a new group called the Disgraced fill out the issue complete with spandexed chick who looks like Chyna on a good day. And she doesn’t have many…or any.
Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #1
We will call this the teeny bopper side of Before Watchmen but let’s not get scared off because of that. It is a good look at Laurie’s friends and family life while she is in high school so you’re going to get some high school girl problems. I am interested to see how her and her mother’s relationship will deteriorate as the title moves on. Not near as good as last week’s Minutemen but it is a decent read.
Green Lantern #10
The conclusion to the Indigo Tribe story has Hal and Sinestro trying to get the indigo lantern back online so the crazies will revert back to the loving Indigo Lanterns that say “Nok” a lot. Also let’s not forget that the Guardians are still planning on destroying the entire Corps and dammit if you can never get rid of those pesky Black Lantern rings.
American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares #1
Two Scott Snyder’s titles in one week? Can’t beat that with a stick. Although I don’t know why you would want to. Anyway London has a missile attack as Agent Hobbes has a pleasant back and forth with a vamp over tea. A group has also broken into a Vassal stronghold and stolen a very powerful artifact and by artifact I mean the original Carpathian that could unite all others. He’s kind of a big deal. So Hobbes hunts down Book and asks for her help before everything goes to hell. But it’s AV so it probably will anyway.
Looks like it was an all DC week this week. Next week should be a little more varied with Walking Dead #99, new Winter Soldier and we will see if AVX can climb it’s way out of the soulless hole it is in.
