I was going to put out a movie review but this site doesn’t have the budget for it. So you are stuck with comics. This week we have three books, Batgirl Annual #1, Batman #20 and Nightwing #18.
Batgirl and Supergirl have to team up for the first time to free someone from the Phantom Zone in Batgirl Annual #1. I have been asking for this team-up for almost three years. The story is well written. I can’t decide if this comic was part of a natural story telling process or an attempt to get people to buy the Supergirl comic. The reason why I say this is due to the fact that this story will continue solely in the Supergirl comic.
Batman has to fend off Bane for one more night in Batman #20. The good thing about this issue and this story as a whole is that we get some great character development for Bruce Wayne. However, this story is supposed to take place over the course of five nights and I have to say it’s just not possible, unless seventy percent of the story takes place on the last night. I highly recommend reading the story “I Am Bane”. I just think you should ignore most of the time placement.
Nightwing and Robin have to save Nightwing’s girlfriend from Professor Pyg in Nightwing #18. This comic could have been a lot darker. If you like disturbing imagery in your comics, this is the comic for you.
