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

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

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.

Talon Cancelled in March


Figured this one deserved its own post as well. Title says it all, Talon will conclude in March, alongside Batman: The Dark Knight and Animal Man. I've got a feeling we may see more in April, or the coming months in general, but no use in speculating now.

This is another one that shouldn't come as a surprise. As soon as Tim Seeley was announced to be writing it... but only two issues, it seemed too oddly specific not to see the writing on the wall. Seeley will end the title with Calvin in search of a way to reverse the Talon...Talonfying? process he went through after Bane killed him.

Sad to see this one go. I, like a lot of people, went from "Wow, DC is milking the shit out of this" to "Man, this is a pretty good book" shortly after its first issue. Calvin is a cool fucking character, and James Tynion did a fantastic job introducing him to the universe, a feat that's not easy given how many new characters in the New 52 are introduced with the "HERE'S A NEW CHARACTER, CARE ABOUT THEM IMMEDIATELY!" mentality. Calvin was introduced well, and built up gradually to a very likable character. Hopefully he sticks around in the Batman universe.
