Batman and Robin #4

Batman and Robin #4

 

  • Batman and Robin #4 – The creative team hits their stride as a book I was once sure to drop and collect in trades starts becoming a book I can’t wait to read every month. This issue has Batman and Robin deal with escaping Nobody’s trap as well as Batman’s parenting issues. This run could end up becoming as groundbreaking as everyone says Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin was.
  • Batgirl #4 – Batgirl’s faceoff with The Mirror! Will she finally win or will it be one of those battles where he escapes at the end? Gail Simone does a good job writing an issue that really makes me feel that Barbara is in good hands. I just wish she’d finally answer whether or not she was Oracle
  • Superboy #4 – Superboy continues to be a bit emo, but it’s fun to watch. I think kids of a certain age would identify with him and I enjoy shaking my head at him. He travels to NYC and has some “fun” there. I’m curious to see just how this first arc ends.

Uncanny X-Force #18

Uncanny X-Force #18

 

  • Avengers: X-Sanction #1 – I thought this book was just going to be a romp and stomp action book. It has that, and it’s well done, but the dialog and internal monologues are very well written here. You can see my CV review for my prediction, but I think this is going to fit the archetype of causing the future you’re trying to prevent.
  • Magnto: Not a Hero #2 – The story continues to be great. I didn’t think this mini would be so good, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s neat to see how Magneto has changed over the years. The meat of this story involves an annoying resurrection, but that’s comics!
  • Uncanny X-Force #18 – I just have two words: “wow” and “powerful”. You MUST buy this and get the trades if you haven’t been following along. It’s simply that good.
  • Marvel Holiday Special 2011 – Four fun holiday stories featuring some of our Marvel favorites. Don’t worry too much about continuity and just enjoy! The stories are pretty darned good and quite a few of them even manage to have plot twists. I almost selected this book for my POW!
