"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.

Geek Goggle Reviews: BATMAN #46

"Batman" continues down the multi-threaded track that involves Gordon not succeeding in his Batman role, while trying to deal with the Mr. Bloom threat. While these events are unfolding we get a little more of Bruce Wayne and his girlfriend as well as Robin investigating on the side. The read is an average one for a bunch of reasons, but primarily because the decisions the characters make in the comic book aren't really explained and don't really make a ton of sense. This story line is not Snyder's strongest.

Landis, Dragota & Guimaraes

"Superman: American Alien" kicks off with a look at Clark learning to fly. The comic presents some beautiful artwork that help tell a tale of a scared kid that is unsure of the changes he's going through. The comic has a coming of age element to it, but it also has a family theme as Ma and Pa build some trust with their adopted son. It's a decent read and is probably one of the better Superman comics to come out in a number of years. I recommend giving this a shot.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Clean Room #1

Vertigo (DC) Comics
Simone & Davis-Hunt

Gail Simone makes her Vertigo debut with a good first issue, in what looks to be a series to watch. The concept of the book is a mix between an oppressive cult and the super-natural, as the main character investigates how a book may have played a role in the death of her fiancé. The comic provides stellar art and solid character work, but doesn't shy away from some perplexing ideas and disturbing images. This is a comic book to check out.

"Batman" provides an entertaining read that contains a couple of solid plot twists. While, the Bruce Wayne sideshow doesn't get much movement, the Jim Gordon-as-Batman one certainly does. This issue is the usual well-written, terrifically illustrated comic book where if you are reading this series you've come to expect every single month. I definitely recommend reading this, even if you aren't too into the plot that has Jim Gordon in the Batman suit.

"Superman: Lois and Clark" is DC's attempt to keep a classic version of the Superman character that was around for decades before being dumped in favor of the grim and gritty Superman that exists in DC's Universe today. This comic book is different from the short-lived Adventures of Superman comic book because this character is now part of the current continuity of the DC comic line whereas Adventures was totally out of continuity. This issue focuses on character work but provides enough sub-plot development to show that big things are on the way. I recommend giving this book a shot.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batman Annual #4

Tynion IV, Antoniio & McCaig

The latest "Batman" Annual represents why comic book publishing is a team effort. You need a good story, with good line work, appropriate colors, sensible lettering and an editorial hand to steady the whole thing. This is an example where whatever story Tynion was hoping to push across with this comic book is lost with artistic carelessness, lettering mistakes and dreadful editorial assistance. The idea that Bruce Wayne returns to his mansion, that had been turned into an asylum, only to be held hostage by some of Batman's villains is a sound idea that gets lost in the mistakes. When you charge five dollars for a comic book I don't care what your page count is if you can't put care into each of the pages then the whole thing is a waste. Had this been a three dollar comic book perhaps the cost of the mistakes would have been less. I'd avoid this comic book unless you are a Batman completist or followed the 'Arkham Manor' comic that was last published in March.

Geek Goggle Reviews: American Vampire Second Cycle #10

American Vampire Second Cycle #10American Vampire: Second Cycle #10
Vertigo (DC) Comics
Snyder, Albuquerque & McCaig

"American Vampire: Second Cycle" reaches its penultimate issue with the two plots seeing alternating action as the tension rises. Generally, this is a very exciting read. The drawbacks of the comic have to do with the length of the gaps between issues. If you are willing to go back re-read the previous issues of "Second Cycle" then the little tidbits that are dropped in this issue will have a greater impact. There are also some required suspension of the physics behind the space activity but that is easier to dismiss in light of the fact that these are vampires. Overall, this issue is a great set-up for the finale of the series. I recommend this comic.
