Comedy! Violence! Despair! Batman!

July 12, 2016 // 1 Comment

So normally I’d preface this with a pithy introductory paragraph. But this time, I think the title says it all… Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses 16 by David Lapham  Holy shit what a great comic! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a Stray Bullets more in quite some time. It furthers the on-going story of Beth and Orson’s master plan to free Nina and run off with a whole bunch of money, but it also delivers on a great set-piece, a spiffy done-in-one that starts off tense [...]

KING BATMAN!

June 22, 2016 // 1 Comment

TOM King’s Batman, to be precise… Batman: Rebirth 1 by Tom King, Scott Snyder, and Mikel Janin Batman 1 by Tom King and David Finch As discussed last week, I’ve recently become rather fond of the work of writer Tom King.

You can read that rant HERE, but essentially I took Finch to task for his past hyper-sexualized Wonder Woman.

So I just saw the news that, following the end of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s innovative run on Wonder Woman, the character’s adventures will next be chronicled by David Finch. Who draws her like this: So… Heavy breasts, wide hips, and big thighs. Big thighs with an anatomically unlikely gap between them. This is a drawing that says, “Hey man! I KNOW you like boobies, but looka here! There’s a VAGINA up under them star-panties!” Jesus wept. [...]
