I’m surprised no one has read Metal #3 yet. It was really bat-shit crazy insane. In a good way. Snyder & Capullo are at the top of their game, and I’m glad they are obviously having so much fun here. The book is shaping up not at all as I expected it to, and I’m enjoying being taken along for the ride.
I don’t, as a rule, read the tie in books to event books anymore. I think, however, after this issue that I am going to give the “Gotham Resistance” and JL tie in issues a go this time. The set up is so great. I want more.
All Star Batman #14 wrapped up the Alfred focused arc, by the American Vampire creative team of Snyder & Albuquerque. The pirate motif was starting to drag a bit (okay, a lot) by this issue, and the arc ended on a somewhat anti-climatic note. However, it did so with “feels” that all you Tom-King-Batman-lovers should enjoy. It even managed to bring a smile to my cold, dead heart.
I also dropped X-Men Blue this week. Sadly. It started out with so much promise, that was squandered on a shitty Secret Empire tie in, and two back to back crossovers with books I don’t want to read. I’m going to miss those kids and those Art Adams covers
