Ok this is me not being late with my review.

•Batman 675- ok this book is the beginning of the whole Batman R.I.P arc that DC has been hooting about. I like the idea of Batman being a little on the nutty side. He should be! Look at all the crap the man has endured. Look forward to Morrison doing his thing.

•Birds of Prey 117- Um, DC appears to be trying a revamp on the book. I mean a new town just when they got to Metropolis. The cast so far is the same but I have a feeling that will change too. Hopefully for the better. Read more »

Well I know it, I’m late. But I blame the NYCC for it. That convention made me it’s bitch. Hell I called out sick, and I am actually sick! Well without further excuses, here’s my books.

•Batman and the Outsiders 6- I love this book. Or better yet the idea of it. It could be moving along a lot better but I guess they are just trying a different approach. All the characters and their interaction makes this a book that I won’t be dropping any time soon.

•Countdown 2- I am not talking about this book! Read more »

Small yet good week. which is good cause i am still dazed from the invasion.

•Echo 2- This book is getting good. The character is starting to grow and as expected her opposing characters are in play. The nature of all that crap that fell onto her is also started to show, of course slowly. You shouldn’t expect something like Kick-Ass here. It’s not that kind of book nor will it ever be.

The Secret Invasion is well on its way and the boys dissect who they think is really a Skrull and who's not. Wait a minute since when does Steve wear a hat and Pete wear a white t-shirt? Ramon's burping and Adam's cursing? Is one of them a Skrull?

It was a good week. Hell I even picked up a variant.

•Batman and the Outsiders 5- I love the line-up on this book. I find the group effective and entertaining. Batman's team is on the offensive against i forget who. Know that would usually mean that this book sucks, me forgetting who they are fighting but it is the least important detail right now. Batgirl and Green Arrow! The team gets better and better per issue. Read more »

There were some real gems out this week. let's begin.

•Batman Confidential 14- OK, we have a villain out there throughly trained like the bat. It's been done. Throw in Nightwing at his height of rebellion and we got nothing special. I mean it is a decent series, this issue just didn't do it for me.

•Countdown 7- The only thing this damn book has done for me is make me dislike kyle rayner. That takes a lot considering i am so loving the GL books. Read more »

Ok it was a good week again. Let's just get to the point.

•Echo 1- Terry Moore of strangers in Paradise fame has started this new series. I decided to pick this up due to all the critical acclaim about his last series. This is a damn good book. There is a lot of character in this book. I see this book growing into a damn great series. It isn't exactly a super hero book... yet. It has all the ingredients to be one though, and a good book at the same time. Read more »

WHEW!!! One hell of a weekend. This was a good week in books, and I am sure you will all love the next episode. Until then though i hope these reviews help you out.

•Rasl 1 - It's a good book from a great creator. Jeff Smith made Bone into a epic Comic and then he turned around and decided to create a Mature comic. He pulled it off. One would think such a turn around possibly ruin a guy but if his first book is a sign of things to come... then he should have another epic masterpiece. Read more »

So i hope you enjoy my review of this weeks books. Please be aware that SPOILERS lay ahead. Read more »
