    This is a great idea. That old Action Comics Superman was a lot different than today's, kind of a gritty, hard-punching hero of the working class.

    I'd like to see a Killer Croc mini, using the...

    I'm happy to see this. Superheroes are a niche that appeal to a relative few and there is a lot of room for stories told with words and pictures that don't involve people in spandex punching each...

    Yes, thank you and well said. It’s Batman, not The Days of Our Lives. Also, it’s corporate superheroes - nothing really changes and it’s all meaningless.

    The annual was fantastic and the part...

    Currently sitting at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, so the amalgamated opinion of critics is that it's very good indeed.

    The audience score is 43%, so like Captain Marvel etc., it's been review-bombed...

    Great issue. Loved the Hush showdown and of course: "Hell yeah." Thomas Wayne's concern for Gotham Girl was kind of unexpected and his motivations still seem unclear. King has a tough landing to...

    This is a really big deal and likely shocked the attendees. Venice is the oldest of the Big Three festivals, the others being Cannes and Berlin, and American films have only won a handful of times....

    I started reading Batman in 1981, probably a decade or two before you were born. Love King’s run.

    What I find difficult to believe, but I guess I no longer should, is how some people get so...

    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....
  19. 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.

    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?
