Hello everyone … Joker here! I have kidnapped the usual guy who writes this terrible blog and decided to give you my two cents worth. You better like this post or else people will learn what it’s like to live without a head. HAHAHA!!!!!!!(Thud!)
I ‘m terribly sorry about that. Last time I pick up a hitchhiker!! Now with that out of the way, we can could go through with the review. The three books that we have today are Detective Comics #938, All*Star Batman, and Red Hood and the Outlaws #1.
Batwoman’s father tries to recruit her to fight against her team mates in Detective Comics #938. This issue was set up like a final battle for a story but I don’t know if this is the final chapter of the story or what. It ends with an ending that could go either way. The thing I like about this issue is we see more of the human side between Batwoman and her father in a flashback where we see the two have a tender moment at the gravesite of Batwoman’s mother and sister.
Next up is Scott Snyder’s All*Star Batman #1, let’s just hope this All*Star Batman is able to be completed this time. Batman is on the run from the law after being framed by Two-Face only to have to work with Two-Face in the end. While this issue is a good first chapter in the story, you have to pay attention due to the fact that it does not go in chronological order. In other words, this comic is basically pulp fiction.
Lastly, in Red Hood and the Outlaws #1, the Red Hood goes undercover by working for the Black Mask. Only two issues in and we get a good feeling of what the series is about. I like this issue because it shows major character growth in the Red Hood however I am worried that this series will get a bad reputation not because of the story but because of the reputation of the writer who is writing it.
