there's really only one way to go.

Now there's been some discussion online about the extent to which Grayson is objectifying the former Boy Wonder, but what I do like about the series is that despite being pretty, he's showing a lot more of the tactical side of things which his old Nightwing series sometimes lacked.

Though it's not directly linked to the cover, there's some interesting news about the direction the Grayson title is taking post the Convergence event.

For those not wanting to be spoiled, the full version of the Bombshell variant (by Emanuela Luppachino with Tomeu Morey) for #11 can be found by clicking on the preview image, but there's a full size version under the cut.

Spoilers beneath... )

"I think it’s impossible not to be very aware of the celebrity culture and the way it dominates. It’s taken over a lot from what used to be news in America, and as I thought about that stuff, it all sorta combined. Celebrity culture and that sort of fame is somewhat similar to religion, and all that made me decide to do a cult-mystery story based around this new religion."

So after Nightwing #0 (The origin of Dick as Robin) and Secret Origins #1 (The origin of Dick as Robin), we now have Secret Origins #8 giving us... the origin of Dick as Robin.... The New 52 seems to have some sort of complex about this....

First up is the recovery of something that seemed to have been lost in the New 52, Dick's ethnicity...

I think I know which creative team takes the reins after Batman #50...

(It's, uh, Tom King, Tim Seeley and Mikel Janin.)

Food For Thought: I guess we know who Blondie is on that Batsgiving Poster, don't we? If so, there's only one person left on that thing who's un-ID'd.

Revival is one of two great new series* that I've started reading in the last year. When it was announced I avoided it because... zombies, but I heard enough good things to give it a go. I'm only a trade reader though, so I'm an issue or two behind (which is a shame because the cover to #20 looks majestic. They recently did a one-shot crossing over with Chew and while there are some spoilers for Chew, you don't need to know too much about either series to enjoy the issue properly.

It's a deeply unsettling book. I'm not kidding when I say that a hopper full of teeth wasn't close to being the worst thing that I read in the 3rd trade (and I'm massively grateful that I read it outside, on a sunny day)
If you are thinking about getting on the Revival train, or are a Chew reader who wants to know the ackground of Revival, here's a handy catch up guide from the third trade, or issue #12. I might do a post on the covers later, as Jenny Frisson's work is excellent

Where's the baby? Blue cheeks, icicle tears )

It's brilliant. And the horror of that last page is nowhere near as bad as other parts of the book. Don't read it last thing at night.
*The other is the Eisner nominated High Crimes. It's excellent
