Damian’s confrontation with Talia was a little meh, but I like where this is going.

October 12, 2015 10:38 am Does anyone know when the new Spidey book with Miles Morales is coming out? Marvel announced in June and I've heard/seen nothing since. Also when is the new Kelly/McGuiness Deadpool book going to be released?
November 11, 2012 11:13 pm Theoretically, anything that precedes the new 52 by definition won't fit in terms of continuity. It doesn't make sense to me either, but it makes sense. For me, I just enjoy seeing Damian fleshed out as a character. He embodies a fascinating tension, since he lives closer to the edge of Batman's code than Bruce would like him to. For me, it always makes for interesting reading.
November 11, 2012 11:03 pm Always stunned with awe when I view/read Stokoe's work. There are few with talents that rival his.

October 7, 2012 3:49 pm um ... he's a 13 year old kid who hasn't yet had an opportunity to "prove" himself. One fun (for me) aspect of this story has been following how Bendis riffs on the original ... and I hate to say this but Miles Morales is not necessarily an inaccurate representation of what life is like for a LOT of kids across the United States these ... mixed race parentage, working/middle class parents struggling to pay bills, failing schools so he considers himself lucky to get into a decent charter, etc. etc. If you don't feel you know him well enough then consider yourself privileged. The character's trappings have seemed easily recognizable from my perspective. Getting to know him is what reading the book, for me, is all about.
July 22, 2012 6:33 pm @halik: I don't disagree with you, but I do remember reading that the reason the Two Towers (to cite one example) was able to avoid an R rating for the intense Helm's Deep battle scene (I mean, seriously, heads and arms were being chopped off right and left) was that orc blood is blue. Of course, suspension of disbelief is particular to each individual, so I can see why you found it bothersome.
July 22, 2012 12:59 pm I loved the prologue. It was creative, and we were introduced to the degree of extremity and calculation that Bane would go to accomplish his ends. Perhaps I'm stating the obvious, but the man Bane kidnapped in that scene was Dr. Pavel, who was essential to the later fusion bomb plot.
July 22, 2012 12:48 pm @DarkKnightDetective @halik: Excessive blood would have caused the violence in the film to be deemed "intense", thus netting an R rating.
July 22, 2012 12:35 pm totally disagree with your overall assessment, but I do agree a bit regarding Bane. During the final fight scene, I literally had the theme of Rocky streaming through my brain. It was too contrived on some level. But overall, I felt this was an incredible film and don't think I understood it all. There are references in here that have forced me to add Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities to my reading list (since Nolan lists that masterpiece as inspiration for this film). I think this film will require several viewings to really appreciate its grandeur.
