This weeks comic releases bring us a return of Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque’s American Vampire. Being the first comic I’ve read all day, after moving, cooking, and watching some TV with the children; I was quite ready for for blood and guts to splatter across the page. And for $6.99, I expect to not be disappointed. Continue reading


It seems that for the relaunch of Batman through DC’s New 52, the plan was to put him through hell over and over and over again. His shadow has become a ladder and any that pass underneath it are made to suffer. Another Robin was killed (but honestly, by this point Bruce should know better than to put anyone in that costume).

So when Batman books come out, we are always willing to read. And when we picked up Batman: the Dark Knight #19, “Pool of Tears”, we were happy to find the caped cruisader’s adversary for this arc is The Mad Hatter. SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT! Continue reading
