    August 29, 2013 1:20 pm All-New X-Men Batman Saga Wonder Woman Star Wars Who knew I would have Star Wars in my top five, much less Wonder Woman!
    June 19, 2013 2:23 pm Sorry. I hate to be THAT guy, but Kevin Conroy IS Batman's voice. Not sure why they didn't bring him on this. When I read any Batman I hear Kevin's voice for Batman....
    February 1, 2013 10:13 am I love the Human Torch by Dexter Soy. Looks great!
    January 7, 2013 1:57 pm I really hate Power Girl's logo.
    January 3, 2013 10:15 am Jerome OpeƱa (a master among mere mortals), Greg Capullo, Stuart Immonen, Sean Murphy and Fiona Staples would have been my top five. I'm not a fan of David Aja's style. I love the art direction of the book, but not his cartooning.
    December 10, 2012 4:48 pm You thought "her loyal fanbase overhyped her a little bit", but you admit that: "I have always thought Gail Simone was a good writer", "I will admit that she saved Birds of Prey", "Secret Six was a high quality book, and her Wonder Woman run was strong".... You, my friend make no sense. Maybe it wasn't hype huh?. Maybe she's a great writer.
    December 10, 2012 4:46 pm I tried out this book just because of Gail when the series started and have loved it ever since. I'm gone now. I'm voting with my $$$, or lack there of. Not a good move DC. Maybe she's better off at Marvel.
    September 13, 2012 11:11 am I'm surprised Marvel has never attempted a monthly series focusing on Prof. X while having various X-Men being the minor characters. I think that would be interesting.
    September 4, 2012 3:46 pm With Marvel NOW happening, I've stopped buying all Marvel books until they start over.... Otherwise the books feel like filler for the most part....
    July 30, 2012 9:22 am I finally saw The Dark Knight Rises last night. Wow, what a disappointment. Chris Nolan needs to come up with a better plot. He used the same one for all three movies. Build up the character, knock him down, build him back up. After this movie, they can never make another Batman without starting all over again. Do you REALLY want to see Batman's origin again? Also, why is it that so many people figured out who Batman was so easily? They could have have had the same movie without that. Also, Bane. First his voice was poorly dubbed. No matter where he was what kind of room he was in his voice sounded the same. It sounded like it was pasted in. Why is it that Bane could break granite with his fists, but not cave in Batman's face? On Batman himself: why is it he could break rock with his FOOT just because he was wearing a automated knee brace? On SPOILER: Robin. I figured out who the young cop was right away. Again, even he figured out who Batman was, who didn't know? Not only was the whole nuclear bomb plot cut and paste, but poor. He takes the bomb over the ocean, and he's a hero? So much for radiation poisoning in the ENTIRE OCEAN! As soon as Alfred told Bruce the story about finding him Italy living his life you KNEW right then how the movie was going to end. When I heard that Anne Hathaway was playing Catwoman, I was like: "she weights 110 lbs and looks like she couldn't hurt a fly." But she pulled it off. She was the best part of the movie. Bruce being crippled was again, giving an early end to the character. He's supposed to be better than a normal person. Also, him "breaking" his back and FIXING it in prison was the laziest/crappiest part of the whole movie. Batman has an incredible line of characters (heroes, villains, and regular people in all of comicdom not sure why that just had to pin the entire series on Ra's Al Ghul.'' This movie felt unnecessarily big, over produced and rushed. It felt like an afterthought and a contract obligation by Nolan. I wanted to love this movie, but I can just says it's okay. I mean stop pandering to the lowest common denominator and write a smart movie. "The Dark Knight Rises" It was a HUGE letdown. Star Wars Ep.1 proportions. 2 out of 5 stars.
