Comic Book Reviews

Joker welcomes home his Bat-King and the new Spider-Man teams up with the Avengers.

Any week that sees an issue of Batman release is cause for celebration, never mind stacking Daredevil, Avengers Assemble, and Saga on top of that. The Death of the Family storyline continues full force, while the new Spider-Man gets some time to shine in other series. It’s a pretty sweet week for comics.

One quick note: you might notice we’re down a reviewer this week. As such, we missed some comics we normally review. We hope you’ll forgive us.

“One thing that Batgirl has excelled at when it comes to its Death of the Family tie-in issues is making sure that the event advances Barbara’s own story instead of just servicing Batman’s. Since the beginning, writer Gail Simone has played up the character’s relationship with the Joker, so developing the next stage of that conflict as part of a larger Bat-family event feels natural. This issue finds Babs once again dangerously close to doing something she’d regret, but Simone is able to pull the carpet out from under us, cleverly balancing the unexpected progression of her own plotlines while staying in tune with the greater Bat-saga.” -Joey
