Name: Nathan Tubbs

Bio: Nathan has been a comic book fan since the early ’90’s when his Dad bought him a copy of the Death of Superman. Over time, he has read several different DC and Marvel titles, but now he mainly prefers to read DC books, especially Bat-titles and Green Arrow. We guess he just likes the fact that you don’t have to have superpowers to be a great superhero. Recently, he has expanded his reading base from superhero comics to books such as Mouse Guard, Mice Templar, and The Walking Dead. Nathan, an Alabama resident for 24+ years, recently moved to Brooklyn, NY to work as a middle school science teacher. Hopefully, his child-like love of comics books will help him to relate to his rowdy, inner-city students.

    July 17, 2010 10:44 pm Well, I am disappointed that Morrison is leaving and the series is not ending. It seems that there are just currently too many bat-books in the mix (especially with the limited series and one-shots coming soon), and I'm not sure if the majority of readers are going to be able to continue shelling out $3 per book without DC offering their best writers and artists. That said, DC should drop Tony Daniel like a bad habit. "Batman" was excellent under Morrison, and then continued to offer a great story under Judd, but Daniel is empty. His art is mediocre and his story-telling simply stinks. I really hate that one of DC's flagship books is continuing to be treated like a second-rate step child. Of all the books on my list, Detective and Batman should be my favorite, and right now, I can't say they are. 
    May 9, 2009 12:25 pm Overall, I loved the movie. Furthermore, the opening scene caused my wife to cry and actually become invested in the film. So, this movie does a good job of reaching fans (myself) and non-fans (my wife) alike.
    November 27, 2008 8:51 am "It's simple: I wanna read the book for the story, not message boards and Wikipedia." This is my favorite comment about this story thus far. I agree.

    just finished reading this one...can't wait to see the reactions. Personally, I don't know what to think as it is very obvious from this issue (at least in my opinion) that the end is near for my favorite superhero of all time.

     My question is this, "If Batman is one of DC's top selling books, why go and mess with it?" I used to love Amazing Spider-man, and now it's all screwed up...will the same happen here? 

     I know many people like Morrison's writing, but I'm not sure that I'm on the bandwagon...

    September 15, 2008 4:51 pm Conor, I agree...time to release a new series of "Who's Who" pages. Since there have been so many changes in the DCU since the early 90's, and in light of final crisis, there's no better time than the present to do this again. My binder is ready.
    September 6, 2008 7:27 pm @conor I agree...I enjoyed the art
    August 27, 2008 9:00 pm I had not ever really considered reading this title until today...now, I might have to go pick up volume one soon.
    August 22, 2008 11:03 am thanks for that vid...i really enjoyed the explanation of a complex character.
    August 21, 2008 10:42 pm @drtiehead I have to go and read Batgirl Year One now...
    August 21, 2008 10:42 pm @conor Thanks for the compliement... I agree - should have used "cleaner"
