The Comixalaxy Reviews: ALL-STAR BATMAN #1

Eric Bradach's The Comixalaxy

All-Star Batman #1
Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: John Romita Jr. & Declan Shalvey
Colorist: Dean White & Jordie Bellaire
Letterer: Steve Wands
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: 08/10/2016

After the events of Flashpoint in 2011, DC Comics rebooted their superhero universe, much to the chagrin DC readers, and released the New 52. No one can question its success and the onslaught of new #1's on the shelves sold like gangbusters. However, don't confuse high sales for satisfying reception from fans, as the majority of fans seemed to dislike or even hate the New 52. The change-up of continuity, character reinterpretations, and disappearance of fan-favorites, i.e. Wally West, had some people fueled with rage. From Scott Lobdell's Red Hood and the Outlaws, with its over sexualized portrayal of Starfire, to Cameron Stewart's hipster Barbra Gordon.

Geek Goggle Reviews: DARK KNIGHT III THE MASTER RACE #3

The third installment of "Dark Knight III: The Master Race" is a strong comic. Again, it includes heavy paper for the cover, the pages within and includes a mini-comic. The book presents a visually good story as the story has a number of big moments covered with big images. The story moves the plot along nicely as the master race seems to be taking over and making things look bleak for Earth. Generally, this is a solid read with a very strong presentation. Give it a shot.

Geek Goggle Reviews: BATMAN #49

Batman #49
DC Comics
Snyder, Paquette & Fairbairn

This review contains spoilers. The spoiler free review is that this issue of "Batman" is a good look at what makes Batman a character that isn't like any other. This examination is done through the eyes of Bruce Wayne that knows he is Batman but can't remember anything about the alternate identity. Alfred also plays a heavy role in this emotional issue. The comic is a good one because it hits this angle of Bruce Wayne's responsibility to the city that is seldom seen in comics. The comic drifts into a science fiction-like way out of the current situation but it doesn't come across as ridiculous. This is a good read and worth checking out. This ends the spoiler free review.

Batman #48
DC Comics
Snyder, Capullo, Miki & Plascencia

This issue of "Batman" begins the process of knocking Jim Gordon out of the Bat suit and putting Bruce Wayne back into the suit. The comic is constructed superbly and reads extremely well because of it. The book struggles to make the villain seem important because the means to get Wayne back into the suit really is a foregone conclusion. In short, the threat lacks drama. The comic is a good read and has some fantastic artwork. This is worth checking out.

"DK III: The Master Race" moves to the second issue with more of a scattered approach to the story as it loops in other character arcs. The read is entertaining and answers a lot of the questions about this series that the first issue presented. The comic's presentation is fantastic and helps to justify the six-dollar cover charge. Overall, this is a good comic to check out as it appeals to Batman fans in general, fans of the original Dark Knight series or fans of broken down visions of the future.

The latest issue of Batman continues the plot of Gordon against Bloom and Bruce Wayne against his memory subplot. The comic is an okay read but the comic and the arc just doesn't pack any kind of punch that the previous arcs have had under Snyder and Capullo. The artwork is still extremely stellar but it isn't enough to boost the overall read. I recommend checking this out but you probably won't be as "wowed" as so many previous issues in the series.

Frank Miller's "Dark Knight" gets resurrected for a third go round with an all-star creative team. This issue is largely introducing the characters and providing a nice cliffhanger to launch into the second issue. There isn't anything in here that will "wow" the reader in the same way the original Dark Knight probably did upon a first read. However, because the original was one of the best things DC Comics has ever published readers will return for more just in case this turns out to be a classic. This is an average elseworlds story with quite a presentation for six bucks. I recommend giving this a shot.

DC Comics
Casali, Azzarello, Camuncoli, Lee & Sinclair

"Batman: Europa" is a four-part mini-series that partners Batman with The Joker. The initial issue is well written with a great artistic presentation but ultimately feels like just another Batman comic book. The good news is that this book takes a more classic view of Batman and doesn't seem to be tied to any continuity. Overall, I enjoyed this comic book and I am looking forward in seeing how it evolves.
