Comics Round-up 02.02.2014

Red Sonja Vol.1 Queen of Plagues

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for February.

“A mix of Marvel comics here, with All-New Invaders not being quite up to par but the latest chapter of Revolutionary War is indeed quite impressive. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Scott Lobdell misfires yet again with Teen Titans, proving that this series is deserving of its cancellation whilst Gail Simone works wonders with the first Volume of  Red Sonja.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 15.01.2014

Batgirl v3 Vol.1

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up of the new year.

“Just one title for me this time, but it was a pretty good one, so that’s that. I’m getting into reading some older Batgirl comics and across three different trades, the experience has paid off. I think I’m developing into a fan of Bryan Q. Miller’s Batgirl with Stephanie Brown as the titular character.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Death of the Family hits Red Hood and the Outlaws and Nightwing in trade. Whilst Lobdell is able to make Red Hood one of the most relevant books to the crossover out of the entire Bat-family he’s unable to do Jason Todd justice. On the other hand, Kyle Higgins’ Nightwing story is the better of the two, but not the character’s best outing.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Cover Art: Bat-Family and March (DC Comics)

Batman #18 by Scott Snyder. Variant cover by Andy Kubert. Another emotional cover that recalls the fallout of Jason Todd's death in "A Death In The Family".

Shadowhawk takes a look at the March covers for the Bat-family titles in a post-Death of the Family setting. Contains spoilers for the Death of the Family crossover and from Batman, Incorporated #8.

“The emotional fallout from Batman, Incorporated #8 won’t hit home until you look at these covers.” ~Shadowhawk

Teen Titans Volume 1: It’s Our Right to Fight by Scott Lobdell – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Teen Titans - It's Our Right To Fight

Bane of Kings reviews the trade paperback containing the first seven issues of It’s Our Right To Fight, the first Teen Titans collection of DC’s New 52, written by Scott Lobdell, with art from Brett Booth. 

“An entertaining, action packed introduction to New 52’s Teen Titans. It’s Our Right to Fight is a graphic novel that is flawed, but very fun.” ~The Founding Fields
