Trying desperately to catch up on these.
Here is another batch of belated reviews.
TEEN TITANS - DAMIAN KNOWS BEST:
One of the best new characters of the past decade was Damian Wayne. Batman's son via Talia Al Ghul shook up the Batus Quo (copyright 2017 GonzoGeek.com) and revived a stale concept. Interjecting Damian into the Teen Titans is a stroke of genius. He serves as the Batman for the younger set and gets met with the attitude you would expect. Throw in his Demon Head grandfather and you've got the makings of a fun tale. Maybe its because I'm the father of teenage boys, but I really enjoyed this one.
BATMAN BEYOND - ESCAPING THE GRAVE:
I truthfully never followed Terry McGuiness as a character until Earth-2. Then he became captivating. Seeing him return to his own world and people while trying to explain his long absence makes for a good jumping on point for this character. I'm curious to see how this title shapes up.
NIGHTWING - BACK TO BLUDHAVEN
- Taking "this" Nightwing to Bludhaven seems like a given. That he is finding his way free of spies, women and Batman makes it all the more interesting. As the character tries to make a life for himself outside of his costume, he finds himself dragged back into a mystery involving D-List villains trying to tread the straight and narrow. It's a solid return to the city that made the original Nightwing his own man.
SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS - MEN OF STEEL
- Lex Luthor claims he's a changed man. He's even calling himself Superman. That's not good enough for the Man of Steel until a team of intergalactic judge/jury/executioner types arrive to punish Luthor for crimes he MIGHT commit. This is a classic Superman story with all of the characters hitting the right beats to make you want to keep turning the pages. If you haven't already, this is a good time to catch up with Superman.
JUSTICE LEAGUE v. SUICIDE SQUAD
- For sheer spandex/page ratio, you can't beat this title. The title pretty much says it all. It's got misunderstandings, team fights, Amanda Waller and more team fights. Seriously, what more do you want out of a book with this title.
