    Batman and Robin is an interesting series. The first arc of the series with Morrison and Quietly was an instant…

    February 2, 2012 9:05 pm God, I love this issue. If gritty espionage is your thing, it does not get any better than this.
    February 2, 2012 8:54 pm An incompatible art style, the $3.99 price point, double shipping, and the Captain Britain heavy continuity, puts this title on the chopping block. The art style portrays the action on a smaller scale than the story demands and lacks needed clarity. If the art was more compatible, I could forgive the other faults. If the title was $2.99 and once a month, I could get past some of the creative stumbling. The problem is that all of these factors collectively put this title in a bad position. Also it wouldn't hurt if Remender employed the Johns' caption boxes to aid those unfamiliar with Captain Britain's world. It's one thing to challenger your readers and another to require outside research to discover who certain characters are.
    February 1, 2012 9:16 am Isn't this the important news? DC could have easily thrown low cost creators on these titles if cashing in with the bookstore was DC's only goal. Instead, DC brought in an A-list cast of creators that few comic fans can easily dismiss.
    February 1, 2012 8:56 am Is this any different than the current state of film or television? We are in the era of rehashing established properties. I'm more concerned with the constant events and static status quo of the Marvel and DC Universes. Before Watchman is only a handful of mini-series but the New 52 was a line wide relaunch of more of the same.
    January 30, 2012 6:03 pm I didn't enjoy the new Cap series either. This is not the new Cap series. If anything this direction is similar to Cap's direction before the new #1.
    January 30, 2012 3:26 pm Brubaker and Guice on an espionage title staring Bucky and Natasha and it's only $2.99. If you aren't buying this, why????
    January 30, 2012 3:19 pm But.....the guys at Ifanboy love Tocchini and Remender on twitter said "Greg is a living legend." Unfortunately, I completely agree with you spaceghost. I'm forgiving when it comes to art and open to different styles but Tocchini's art last issue was rough. Tocchini's style may work in other areas but it doesn't fit Remender's writing style. I've loved Uncanny X-force from the beginning but if the art continues to disappoint, I'll move on.
    January 26, 2012 4:00 pm I dug Rodriguez's art too but I hate Tocchini's art. It's ugly, muddy, and the story-telling from panel to panel is poor. Even Tocchini's splash pages push me to turn the page, instead of admire the art.
    January 26, 2012 8:31 am My POTW in a very weak week. The art was solid and there were some cool spy elements that proved Remender is a great choice for this series. The final 4-5 pages were solid but the beginning of the issue was extremely weak. This issue was an entry point for people who don't read comics on a regular basis and/or are not familiar with the Marvel Universe. Remender hits readers over the head with Hawkeye's origin and status quo, and the Secret Avengers concept. Remender does yet have enough pull to avoid Marvel's corporate medeling. This .1 issue is not necessary and those that skipped it, good for you.
    January 26, 2012 8:19 am Yep, only on the Marvel app. Lame Marvel, lame.
