cyberghostface: (Joker)

“Jack Napier almost took everything from Batman--but that was nothing compared to what Joker and Azrael have planned. Not only are they planning on destroying the Dark Knight, but they'll undo the Waynes in way you never thought possible. For Curse of the White Knight, I wanted to do a historical story about the Waynes in Gotham. And talk about how deeply both he and Joker are tied to the city. Gotham seems to be perpetually cursed by crime--this story talks about that curse, and how it's linked to the founding of Gotham Village in 1665.” -- Sean Murphy

The miniseries is coming out in July. Some interior pages can be found at IGN

How do you like your beefcake? Rare? )

There was a Batman story where Bruce Wayne was injured and had to be replaced by a Batman in power armor.

Insert "No, the other one" joke here.

Some random Batman and KNIGHTFALL speculation after the cut.

Insert cut here. )

Harvey had a small supporting role in a two-part storyline where Jean-Paul Valley broke into Arkham Asylum looking for one of his old enemies. Unfortunately, he ran into a whole lotta released inmates, led by the Joker, who was using Harvey (and his coin) to judge where they should take their fun. The story itself is so unremarkable that I can't remember the plot details (it doesn't help that I don't own the preceding issues of Azrael), but it does feature a couple moments of Harvey crack, most notably these panels:





... ewwww. Welp, I don't think anyone's going to try taking his coin now.


Slightly extended context, plus one of the sadder times that Harvey's been punched in the face, behind the cut )

This is a big one. Grab a snack.

I've been putting off reviewing Batman: Face the Face for five years now. Every time I started, my criticisms melted down into curses and incoherent ranting, until my computer screen became obscured by rabid spittle. Okay, it wasn't THAT bad, but still.

In some ways, it's actually an ideal introductory trade paperback to get into Batman. Like Hush, it's a murder mystery that also serves as a tour of Gotham's inhabitants, and it was immediately followed by Grant Morrison and Paul Dini's runs. Unfortunately, it's also deeply frustrating, especially if you're a fan of Harvey Dent.

This was the first story to use the character in the three years since Hush, since Loeb supposedly had plans for Harvey hich kept him in limbo until those plans would reach fruition. They never did, and I think folks at DC wanted their precious status quo back in place. I also understand that Two-Face is Dan DiDio's favorite villain, which may have been a factor. In any case, Face the Face is one of the most significant Two-Face stories in canon, and also one of the most painfully frustrating. After five years, I finally have the words to explain just why.

Batman: Face the Face can be purchased here if you wish to read the story in full, including the Tim Drake subplot, several other Rogues doing their Rogue things, and the entire issue dedicated to Harvey and Two-Face's discussion. As mentioned above, it also serves as a gateway to the comics which are coming out today, leading directly to Dini's Detective Comics and Morrison's Batman.

The Bloodlines have ended. The heroes of the DCU are now finally able to assemble against the Parasite threat, but will it be enough? Or will it be the fall of Earth?

18 pages of a 56 page story.

I have to also warn you that while the art of the Annuals each had specific teams who were used to the books they were on...  but the artists who worked on Bloodbath varied, and the art seemed very rushed at times. (Including having a page that I won't post with Martian Manhunter on it that hurts my eyes)

And you thought the Parasites were bad? )

Another of my favorite issues from the Bloodlines event.

In a bit of a confusing event this issue was less about the heroes fighting off a Parasite (or really at all) and more about what happens when you make two New Bloods at the same time one good and one bad, but with another twist.

18 pages of a 56 page story.

Some odd art in the story and fairly uneven but I can't say I disliked it.

Hmm, I'll admit I wanted to kinda skip this New Blood. His power was amazingly stupid and very ill used even in this book. Though I guess at least one hero had to be gifted with powers that are...well...useless.

Meet Geist the Twilight Man. That's. Yeah.


The Invisible Man. But...Silly. )
