SPOILERS: Detective Comics #953

And the mother of year award goes to... literally anyone but Lady Shiva

SPOILERS: Mother Panic #5

Lots of style, just need a little more easily discernible substance for my tastes.

SPOILERS: Batman #19

Man this book has been so good for the last couple months, so good!

SPOILERS: All-Star Batman #8

I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.

SPOILERS: Nightwing #17

The Morrison influence doesn't end at the Batman and Robin references.

Stack Highlights: 03/26/2017

Okay, so we're changing things up here. Stack Rundown: Dead. I don't want to write something about every single issue I read in a week. I don't got time for that anymore, more often than not, I don't have much unique to say about a particular issue that differentiates it from the previous in the series, and it just ends up making me rush through comics so I have everything read by Sunday morning.

So instead, I'm going to replace Rundown with Highlights, which will see me only highlight the issues of the week I actually feel like I have something to say, or they caught my attention for a particular reason. This won't be weekly, because I can't guarantee every week will feature an issue or two that catches my attention in a particular way. So it's more of a "whenever the hell I feel like it" sort of schedule, which suits me pretty well at this point.

Good? Good.

Batman Group June 2017 Solicitations

Dark Days arrive, but screw that, because Zatanna is in Detective Comics, and that's Paul Dini levels of nostalgia awesome.

Mother Panic #5 Preview

Newsflash: I really enjoy Shawn Crystal's art, that is all!

Dark Days are coming to the DC Universe

Here I was thinking I was going to open this by referencing the Perturbator album in some form, only to remember that's called "Dangerous Days," so there goes that pull.


Metal this is not, but it seems we've got a prelude to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's now-not-so-summer event, which I've been suppressing my excitement for going on 7 months now? Yeah. Didn't know this was coming, but nevertheless, Scott Snyder, James Tynion, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita JR have "The Forge" and "The Cast" one shots coming in June and July that set the stage for events to come... boy you sure do forge and cast metal, don't you?

You can read more about it at DC's site, hell, you've probably already read enough about it while I was at work, but nevertheless, this all sounds cool... and if what half the shit I've heard about the probably-still-called Metal remains true (given the time that's past), this could be one awesome event, unlike those we've seen before.

On top of that, James Tynion has confirmed that this is what the final scene of Detective Comics #950 was about, and on top of that, Tim Seeley of Nightwing and Steve Orlando of Justice League of America have chimed in too.

Detective Comics #953 Preview

I am really enjoying the art in this arc.

(Source: Comicbook.com)

Looking Forward: March 22nd, 2017

No more Batgirl! I think that book is bad. Not gonna read it anymore.
  • Detective Comics #953: There seems to be a lot of issues of this book that has Batman's team giving him some shit on the cover.
  • Mother Panic #5: Surprised this is coming out so soon, almost missed it. 
Solicitations next week. Seems like the next Batman arc might have to do with Riddler and potentially Joker?

SPOILERS: Batman #19

You know how you'll watch a John Cena feud and go "Man, the bad guy has a point here, I think John Cena has been the heel all along." That's pretty much this issue in a nutshell.

SPOILERS: All-Star Batman #8

I don't care about Mad Hatter, I really don't. But this issue managed to do something really cool with him that was worth the price of admission, in my opinion.
