Green Lantern Vol. 4: Dark Days by Robert Venditti – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Green-Lantern-Vol-04

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers the fourth Volume of the New 52 Green Lantern series, “Dark Days”, written by Robert Venditti and with pencils from Billy Tan, published by DC Comics. 

“A book that sadly is full of wasted potential despite Robert Venditti’s strengths as a writer in his other work – Dark Days is a collection to stay clear of unless you’re up to date with everything Green Lantern and even then it struggles as a successor to Johns’ work.  “ ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Superman Vol. 3: Fury At World’s End by Scott Lobdell – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

SupermanVol3

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, turns his attention to the third Volume of the New 52 Superman series, entitled Fury at World’s End, penned by Scott Lobdell, featuring art by Kenneth Rocaforte this series is published by DC Comics, and collects the Superman sections of the “H’EL on Earth” crossover.

“What a disappointment. Whilst not being one of the worst graphic novels of the New 52 that I’ve read, Superman Vol. 3 is certainly down there, and despite some scenes of initial promise, Fury at World’s End is a wasted oppurtunity that suffers from Lobdell’s apparent need to make everything that he writes connect to another title as part of a crossover event.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Batman and Robin Vol. 3: Death of the Family by Peter J. Tomasi – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Batman and Robin Vol. 3

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews Peter J. Tomasi’s third Volume in the Batman and Robin series, a tie in to the titular Death of the Family, with artwork from Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray – featuring Bruce Wayne as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin. This is published by DC Comics as part of their New 52 Relaunch.

“An excellent swansong to Damian Wayne – Tomasi has made me care about the character a lot more than I would have otherwise. He proves that he’s a strong and gifted writer and whilst this series may not always receive as much attention as Snyder’s Batman Tomasi proves with this collection it’s certainly worthy of it.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
