This week the two comics we have are the first chapters of two new story arcs. The two books that we are looking at this week are Batman #9 and Nightwing #7.
Batman is recruiting his own suicide squad to fight the villain, Bane in Batman #9. This is an amazing first issue of a story. It leaves you with so many questions that I can’t wait for the next issue. The downside of this issue is most of the people Batman recruits are B grade villains that no one cares about.
Finding out you have a stalker is a creepy thing. Finding out the stalker has returned from the grave is even creepier. Nightwing #7 provides a conspiracy-like thriller story that should be appealing to fans of the Grayson comics. The only issue I have is the story ties Dick Grayson’s dead parents into the mix which we have seen a ton of times. I wish that they could have picked another aspect of Dick Grayson’s life that would have been different.
