DC Comics - The Rebirth is Here


#1369

You sir, have no idea how hard the hit my wallet will take after I order that OHC of Superman when that becomes available. So looking forward to it.

Batman #16 - 20 - “I Am Bane” - I’ve been so-so on King’s Batman run to date, but I enjoyed this unequivocally.

The diner scene in #16 was perfect, and it was great to see “the boys” collectively saying what I was earlier - Bane wouldn’t have stood a chance against a united Bat-Team. Of course, though, Bruce sent them away regardless :roll_eyes: King’s banter here was almost Tynion-esque, which was great to see.

The escalating tension in #17 was palpable, with a fantastic cliffhanger ending.

.#18’s “compare & contrast” was a tad annoying, as a long time Bat-fan; but again, another sighting of the Bat-Man-With-A-Plan saved the day.

.#19 was a fun reversal of the original Knightfall epic.

Leading up to #20 and the epic smack down. It went pretty much the way you saw it going; Bane pretty much destroyed Bats, until a lucky shot at the end turned the tide. However, what I did really like about this issue was the use of Bruce’s mother as the narrator. It added a lot of context not just to this issue, but also the two arcs preceding it.

Word of warning: the story doesn’t really end though. King appears to have ran out of space, and I suspect the “Aftermath” issues coming up after the Flash crossover are going to be essential reading.

Artistically, David Finch truly owned this arc. I haven’t been the biggest fan of his artwork on Batman over the last few years, but it was a perfect fit for this storyline. Maybe it was Trevor Scott on inks adding greater texture; maybe it was the subject matter. I don’t know, but I can’t imagine this arc having been drawn by anyone else.

Superman #20: This right here, gentlemen. Page of the week. Probably month? We’ll see.

I feel like Batman is missing out on a lot of great food.


#1374

Yeah that was great. I liked the page before with Lois ruining the boys fun. I’m loving the Jon and Damien friendship. It’s definitely one of the best things to come from Rebirth.


#1375

That is brilliant.


#1376

Love this DKIII #9 variant cover by Quitely.

Wait a minute.

Are you telling me that…

There are DC comics without Batman?


#1379

Seriously though, I think that list is missing Omega Men. And I’d put Sinestro Corps War instead of Flash Rebirth and Blackest Night instead of Darkseid War.

Titans #7 - Lee Weeks’ art; “my” Superman vs “my” Flash. What’s not to love?


#1381

I think Abnett really gets the Titans and their history. He is doing a great job on that book

Thanks for sharing, but that is fucking soul destroying.

I don’t know how they are going to replace him. That’s a damn shame, but the fact that we got 25 issues out of him I guess we need to be happy with.

I’m not surprised by the news because that’s how Rucka pitched it a year ago, they’d do a 24-issue run and that’s it.

That it happens to be a set of issues with Sharpe and Scott as artists was a massive bonus.

That and this ending means more Black Magick, Stumptown and Lazarus. Two of those I love, the other I know I will like. (Black Magick.)


#1387

I the latest Previews, I saw a solicitation for Black Magick.


#1388

When you put it that way…

Although DC is going to need to pull a rabbit out the hat for the replacement here…
