This week wasn’t necessarily a bad week but also wasn’t one the blew me out of the water even with some of the same books that have in the past.
Batman: The Dark Prince Charming Book One - The format of this book was nice, almost exactly the same as the Deluxe Editions of DKIII. The art was nice but the story could have used something more. I’ve started to figure out that the endings aren’t always satisfying in the BD style books. There was a big reveal hinted at in this book that was held back for the next. I also have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of the Joker. At this point, I’ve probably read enough Joker stories to last me a lifetime especially if nothing incredibly different is being done with the character.
Super Sons #10 - This issue basically set up the new status quo for this book. So there wasn’t anything too exciting. I still like the banter between the characters so it wasn’t bad, just not up to the level of previous issues.
Superman #35 - This has been a storyline I have been looking forward to. It isn’t bad but it seems to be just falling short of the epicness I’ve come to expect from this book. I’m still looking forward to more of this story though.
Wild Storm #9 - This felt like a bit of a “sit and talk” issue without a lot of action or even much exposition. Still not a bad issue but it did feel like it was marking time a bit.
