The DC Logo: Rebirth And A Brief History

  As an additional measure to break away from the New 52, DC Comics announced on Twitter that they are changing their DC Logo, as seen above!  The announcement came with a flurry of fury and confusion at the change [...]

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 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 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 [...]

Baturday: A few more books end

A few titles ended this week from DC Comics, and to be completely honest, I’m sad to see them go.  Especially Batwoman, one of the most consistently strong titles on the stands.  At least we get an annual to wrap [...]

Baturday: A light week before the madness begins

It was a pretty light week in the world of Batman.  No episode of Gotham.  No movie/TV news worth reporting.  And only six comics featuring everyone’s favorite Caped Crusader.  But which was your favorite?  Here are my reviews, as per [...]

Baturday: How on earth will “Endgame” end?

So my comics came in this week.  And that was awesome.  And it was also great to get a double-reading schedule.  Oh, yeah.  And Amanda Waller was cast for the DC Cinematic Universe, starting with the Suicide Squad movie.  Another [...]
