Batman: Streets of Gotham #21
Written by Paul Dini
Art by Dustin Nguyen
The final issue of Streets of Gotham marks the end of more then just this series. It marks the end of Hush posing as Bruce Wayne after Jane Doe rips his face off (How is he able to talk after that? Wouldn’t that be too painful) and it also marks the end of Dini’s writing in the Batman corner of the DCU which is sad. The House of Hush arc was no where near as exciting as the Heart of Hush storyline but it was still good and added a lot to the history of the Waynes and Elliots. I have a feeling it was cut a little short. I wonder when we will see Hush again or when Dini will return to writing Batman.
Legion of Super-Heroes (Volume 6) #11
Written by Paul Levitz
Art by Daniel HDR
So Starman is going back to being called Star Boy now? Seems kind of strange…why is Earth-Man the only one allowed to be called Man now? None of them are really teenagers anymore right? Anyways, this was a fantastic start to the Legion of Super-Villains arc as all of the Legionnaires search for the villain group. Levitz sure knows how to pack a lot into one issue.
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents (Volume 3) #5
Written by Nick Spencer
Art by Cafu
Okay so very confused. So Toby was the leader of Spider’s brother and he was posing as Toby and the Menthor helmet made him turn against his brother. What did they want from Raven? I hope we get some more clarification soon or did I miss something?? Still an awesome comic though.
Green Lantern Corps (Volume 2) #58
Written by Tony Bedard
Art by Tyler Kirkham
This is part 2 of War of the Green Lanterns which began here and it was awesome! Ganthet tells Kyle Rayner it was no accident he was given the last ring and that he was the Corps’ best hope then and still is today! Hell to the ya he is! He is a dreamer with a heart; the perfect Lantern. Anyways, it looks like Parallax has taken over the entire Corps I imagine he was never able to do that before when he was stuck in the battery because he didn’t have Krona’s help. Things are getting crazy!
Batman: The Dark Knight #2
Written by David Finch
Art by Finch
That was a quick read for a comic book that is so incredibly late but whatever, it was still good. Finch’s artwork is fantastic and the story is interesting even if I have no idea on how it all connects just yet. Who is the Ragman-like monster killing homeless people and what is with this amulet? Oh and Finch draws a big nose on Penguin doesn’t he?
Green Lantern (Volume 4) #64
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Doug Mahnke
Okay things go to hell for the Corps really fast in the first part of “War of the Green Lanterns” as Krona and the entities take over the Guardians and restore Parallax to the Central Power Battery. Oh and a bunch of folks get stuck in the book of the black. It was really good for an opening chapter of this crossover, but a little too much Hal Jordan and Johns’s annoying Hal Worship going on.
Xombi (Volume 2) #1
Written by John Rozum
Art by Frazer Irving
Seriously?! I have never read the original Xombi book but in one issue Rozum and Irving have me hooked! Read this book people! This is crazy far-out stuff I can’t even explain it. Catholic Girl, Nun of the Above, violent snow angels, underground prisons! This is all in one issue! The concept of the character is even cooler than I thought.
