Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to be at San Diego Comic Con and caught the premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn.I have to admit the reaction by the audience was a whole lot of laughter. Bruce Timm did it again with another solid animated film. Seriously, somebody get him involved the in the live action movies. That said let’s take a look and what grows on us in this movie.
I’m taking a break from my SDCC updates to take us back to 1988 and to the question: “can one bad day make a man a monster?” A question wrestled with in Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke”, the subject of my first classic comic review.
So from our previous episode, we are exactly 1 week away from the San Diego Comic-Con International 2015! On this episode Wayne and Fidel talk about Batman Arkham Knight, while Jesse talk about MiiVerse and news from the Sony patch! Please due tune in to next weeks episode because it is going to be a special one!
Unless you’ve been actively avoiding the Internet over the weekend then you’re very aware of the photo David Ayers posted of Jared Leto as a rather alternative looking Joker.

If you were amongst the mob…. well jokes on you!
Magical number 21! It amazes me how long this series has gone, and I don’t see any signs of it stopping any time soon. There seems to be very small plot progression in each issue, but the $1 price tag makes it easy to bear.

The time to pick sides is here. I had said previously this series reminds me of the Justice Lords arc in the Justice League cartoon, but it’s starting to remind me of Marvel’s Civil War arc as well. It is also reminding me that heroes aren’t like they were when I was a kid. Back then, heroes weren’t really questioned, they truly were godlike. If they did something, it must be for our own good. Injustice is showing us that isn’t always the case. This is a talk heavy issue. How did it go? Continue reading
The aftermath. In comics, the aftermath is as important, sometimes more so, than the actual event leading to it. This is the case because it is so easy to mess this up. Someone very important has been lost, and now we get to see how everyone reacts. As this important story continues, we are given a view most of us would have if we lived in this universe: from the bottom up. Continue reading
Yes, it is a single issue review. I figured since now we are caught up, we should review the issues as they are released. The fight in Arkham has started, and as we saw in the end of issue 15, Robin is in quite a bind. How does this battle progress, and can it stay interesting as we go further into the story? Let’s find out.
