Batman and His Bitches

Why We Need Batman Part 1: Super Friends

Batman is the most complex character in comic book history, and that is why he is objectively the best character in comic book history.  Over 75 years worth of stories agree with me.  That complexity could take years to fully [...]

DC launches 8 new miniseries in 2016

Perhaps the greatest thing about the “DC You” initiative has nothing to do with the new character designs, origins, and devil-may-care attitude of writers toward the classics and continuity restraints.  It’s my humble opinion that the greatest thing about this [...]

Hey, guys and gals!  I’m back from my long New York City adventure.  And while I’ve been away, lots of other great Batman-related books have come and gone.  But those are neither here nor there… there’s no time like the [...]

Independent Comic Spotlight: Book Book Edition

So every now and then, indy creators send me neat stuff.  And it just so happens that my stack is so high with actual books right now, that I couldn’t resist throwing together an actual book book edition of Independent [...]

Scream 1.1 Review: “Pilot”

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Kevin Williamson can do no wrong.  The creator of Scream came up with the plot and reinvents and reimagines (without forgetting to still poke fun at) the “slasher” portion of the [...]

Baturday: DC You Week 1

Welcome back, Bat fans!  There were quite a few shakeups after Convergence, but for the most part, a lot of people seem to be genuinely happy (or outright excited) for the future of DC Comics.  This week started the brand [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 8

This is it, folks!  The end… or is it the beginning?  As Convergence ends, a whole BAT-load of possibilities have reared their ugly (or beautiful) heads.  So many deaths.  So many returns.  So many opportunities.  So many crises.  And, most [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 7

Only one more week until everything converges into a brand new (or maybe not) DC Universe.  This week wasn’t exactly a big week of releases, but there were still a few shocks and surprises along the way.  Here are my [...]

The return of Comic Booked news!

Hello, everyone!  It is my pleasure as the Chief Creative Officer to announce the dawn of a new age here at Comic Booked…  Or, rather, the dawn of an older idea from a past age that is coming forward into the [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 6

Week six of Convergence had no “surprise” releases from DC Comics, but we did get a fun direct-to-DVD release of a (potential) new franchise of animated Batman movies.  The folks from Zero Hour fought some of the fan-favorites from Wildstorm [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 5

Well, here we are.  A Gotham finale, a new Earth One volume of their version of Batman, and a week full of Convergence-related shenanigans featuring various “doomed” timelines, including (but not limited to) the pre-Flashpoint DCU.  Here’s what I thought [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 4

Well, Convergence was interrupted by three “New 52″ titles and the Free Comic Book Day issue of Divergence, and Gotham is spiraling out of control and headed to next week’s season one finale.  Then there’s that shock ending for Batman [...]

Baturday: Convergence Week 3

Well, week three was a little… different.  Pre-Crisis DCU is a bit of a mystery to me (considering I wasn’t alive yet), but I gave it a shot.  I have to say, the best part of these books this week [...]
