Batman: Blind Justice is an odd graphic novel from 1989, one I hadn’t heard anything about until my brother gave me a stack of comics he thought I might like and included the second issue of this story. Here’s the description: When Bruce Wayne refuses to allow illegal mindcontrol experiments to continue at Wayne Technology, he…… Continue reading Review: “Batman: Blind Justice” by Sam Hamm
I found the 20 Questions Book Tag at Lost in Words! How many books is too many books in a series? I’m a big fan of duologies, myself. You read one great book and you get to have another one, but then you’re finished. It doesn’t get drawn out. I won’t say three books is…… Continue reading 20 Questions Book Tag
I realized recently that I don’t review very many comics of the superhero variety here, which is odd, because I read tons of them and its one of my very favorite genres. I think I mostly talk myself out of it because I know superheroes are kind of a niche and confusing to a lot…… Continue reading Review: “Batman: New Gotham” by Greg Rucka
Behold, a book tag based on Hamilton songs! I found it on Rustling Reads, and it was created by Maureen Keavy. I’m doing it with a twist — all comic book answers! That’s mostly what I’ve been reading lately, and the categories seemed to work much better for the massive longform storytelling genre anyway. I tag…… Continue reading Hamilton (Comic-)Book Tag
I’m back on the Star Trek posts at Comparative Geeks, with a reflection last month and a post on movie commentaries today! I’ve gotta actually watch more TNG soon and get some more posting material, I know… I’ve been sick-slash-injured for most of December and January (moral of the story: if you have severe allergies,…… Continue reading Update: February!
Be safe out there friends!
I was browsing through my local library’s online catalog recently, as I often do, and found two interesting books listed next to each other: How to Read and Why by Harold Bloom, and How to Read Superhero Comics and Why by Geoff Klock. “That’s gonna make an interesting blog post,” I thought to myself, so…… Continue reading Classics, Comics, and Continuity, or, How to Explain Books You Like
Oh, Catman. Like Pied Piper, he has an interesting origin as a throwaway villain. He was originally set opposite Batman in 1963, something of an analogue to Catwoman (as then-Batwoman was an analogue to Batman). Like Piper — and Batman — he was a bored millionaire with an obsession. In this case, he grew bored…… Continue reading A to Z: Thomas Blake (Catman)
Renee Montoya’s meta-history is just as interesting as her in-character backstory. She was an original character created for the Batman: The Animated Series show in 1992 — an honest cop and a woman of color. Along with other fan-favorite TAS characters like Harley Quinn, she made the jump to DC Comics canon and has since…… Continue reading A to Z: The Question (Renee Montoya)
