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 [...]

This week, Convergence visited a few worlds from the pre-New 52 universe and as someone who grew up and began his lifelong love affair with comics (specifically DC Comics) in the 1990s, I was beyond pumped to see the Wildstorm [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
