Batman 688

Not a lot of things came out this past week that caught my attention. I picked up Superman: World of New Krypton #5 and  X-Men Legacy #226 (I really wish they’d revert the name back to just X-Men), but overall it was a slow week.  DC Comics is gearing up for “Blackest Night” and I’m sorta interested in that, but it is not quite here yet. While I haven’t followed Batman since Gotham was ravaged by an Earthquake and declared a “No Man’s Land”, a lot of people have been recommending that I take a look at “Batman: Reborn”.  With Bruce MIA and thought to be dead, Dick Grayson has finally taken over as the Dark Knight.  In Batman #688, which hit stores on Wednesday, both Two-Face and the Penguin make their move against the new Batman.

What else is worth your time? This week was as slim as summer television.

  • Marvel: Uncanny X-Men: First Class #1 – a lighter look at one of my favorite teams of X-Men.
  • Dark Horse: B.P.R.D.: 1947 #1 – a vampire hunting down survivors of the Third Reich? Sounds interesting.
  • IDW: A few G.I. Joe titles and an an adaptation of Angel‘s final episode. I’ll pass.
