    I'll just reiterate Arak, Son of Thunder once again. Maybe Azzarello/Risso? It's got medieval savagery, Vikings, monks, various other religious nuts, monsters, etc.

    Yes, a good character. And let’s not forget his political opponent Arthur Reeves, whose campaign fell apart after it was discovered that his Batman identity photos were fake. All with great Don...

    So anyone who likes it is a shill and it sold huge numbers because everyone hated it? Get out of here.

    Batman: none. It's antithetical to the character.

    Bruce Wayne: the crazier, the better. Talia is an obvious badass. There's also Nocturna, for those early '80s kids who remember Bruce's best...

    Yeah, my immediate thought was, "I wonder if she's one of the Three Jokers." Probably a dumb idea on my part but I liked Martha-Joker a lot. Hey maybe Joker's Daughter will show up too for the full...

    Some companies like Image allow you to download drm-free PDFs of the issues you’ve bought, which is great.

    Basically all of the Brubaker stuff, including Fatale. I loved that book.

    Monstress would be interesting. It would be tough to get a world of talking, multi-tailed cats to be taken seriously.

    Well, I guess we are the only people who read this and bothered to solve it. But yeah, I like it when Riddler stories feature actual puzzles in the text. It also reminds me of The Brave and the Bold...

    I cannot wait for this. Is there a date yet? Easily my most anticipated comic book movie possibly ever. If Tom King captures the magic of even half of his Mr. Miracle series, it will be tremendous....
  10. The Riddler’s puzzle in Batman Secret Files #2

    Spoilers obviously. Did anyone else take the time to figure it out? Not exactly rocket surgery but kind of fun, a bit of an ‘80s vibe to it.

    Can anyone explain Little Bird #5 to me?

    I think I missed some stuff and I need to re-read the series but the ending sure confused me. Good comic nevertheless.

    I thought the review in The Comics Journal was pretty fair though somewhat...

    For sure, it was a massive shock at the time. Teenaged me (the intended audience) was blown away.

    The Judas Contract, like the other groundbreaking superhero comics of the time that featured...

    Agreed. This forum is not representative of actual readership reality. Heroes in Crisis sold like crazy. Batman is selling like crazy. Tom King won an Eisner. Lots of us love everything he's ever...

    Wait, you read Batman: Odyssey and your takeaway was that Batman was an effective detective? Was this before or after he flew around on underground dinosaurs because naturally the Earth is hollow?

    “Whenever I meet a woman I can care for, she's an enemy! And that's my curse!”

    Batman:

    Artist and writer: Paul Pope

    Detective:

    Writer: Brian Azzarello

    Lots of Frank Quitely (not "Quietly") fans here. He's a big favourite of mine too but I...

    Both of those things would be great, in my opinion. I think Bane is a lame villain and the Bat-family is just way too big. They mostly need to go away and if they are truly good characters, then...

    It's hard to think of something permanent in superhero comics. I guess it would have to be something Batman experiences that cannot be un-experienced easily. One thing I can think of is Batman losing...

    The usual pearl-clutching Americans are fine with brutal violence and female nudity but male nudity is Very Bad.

    Anyway, this is great to see. DC must have sweetened the pot for these guys so this...

    The current Hit-Girl series varies from good to great. The current Hong Kong arc has fantastic Goran Parlov art. "Hit-Girl in Canada" was written by Jeff Lemire (of course) with Eduardo Risso art. So...

    For sure. I've read the full series a couple of times over the years and I should do so again. I'm kind of at the point where I'd like to re-read various things (eg all Moebius, the first six...

    For sure these are all problems. But the fundamental issue is that the deal Image (and others, eg Boom!, where Matt Kindt seems to hang out) offers is simply better. Creators own their work and...
