Batman: Black and White #1

BM_BLKWHT_Cv1_09faq10822_  Batman: Black and White #1

Artist: Michael Cho, Neal Adams, Joe Quinones, Sean Murphy and Chris Samnee

Writer: Chip Kidd, Neal Adams, Maris Wicks, John Arcudi and Howard Mackie

Lettering: Dezi Sienty, Erica Schultz, Rob Leigh, Sal Caipriano and Jack Morelli

DC has launched another comic in the Batman line with Batman: Black and White. The premise is simply have a some of comics greatest writers and artist create a series of short Batman stories. This is going to be a six issue mini series and kicked off by the list of writers and artist listed above.

I never read any of the original releases of the Batman: Black and White so I have no reference point from those books. Each story is special and different by way of the writers and artist take on their particular story. The art work of Michael Cho  was great and harkens back to the style of the 1940 but also looking fresh and new for this generation. The art of Chris Samnee for some reason give me the feeling of a underground comic. The lettering by Jack Morelli also helps add to that feeling. Sean Murphy work on the story “Driven” by John Arcudi has strong solid lines mixed in what look like fast scribbled mixed in to make something different and amazing. But the story and work of Neal Adams is the one that I remembered days after reading the book. “Zombie Batman” is the telling of Batman’s helplessness of not being able to fight all the crime he see happening around him. The crime of a family being kick out of their home. A man stealing bread to feed his family. The crimes that the Batman can not physically fight. In the end Bruce Wayne realizes that there are somethings that “The Batman” can not do and only Bruce Wayne can.

Over all I do recommend getting this book for the simple reason that you get some great stories and art in just one book.

So I give Batman: Black and White 4 bats out of 5

Remember comics are to be enjoyed, not destroyed.


Reality Check

Image Comics

Writer: Glen Brunswick

Artist: Victor Bogdanovic

Colorist: Paul Little

Lettering: Rus Wooton

Willard Penn is a struggling comic book creator that has finally had the big score. The story of his superhero with a libido problem that he is more concern with then fighting crime. On the night of getting news that his book has become a over night sensation, Willard comes face to face with his creation. Willard’s creation, Dark Hour refuses to return to the book until Willard helps him find the perfect woman. Also the books homicidal villain has also crossed over. Surprise!

I have to say this is a interesting idea and I can not remember seeing anything like this before. I sure the idea is not new and has been done before but I don’t remember it. The story by Glen Brunswick is simple and not hard to read. Hey don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that. I don’t think there is any deep hidden meaning in this book and that is cool. The art by Victor Bogdanovic is not amazing but is not awful buy a long shot. Hey I have seen some bad stuff out there and Mr Bogdanovic is not one of them. The said thing to say here is that I don’t see this book lasting long if it meant to be a series book. If it is only a short arc of a few books I believe it would be best.

So if you want a nice easy light read then pick this one up.

I give “Reality Check” 3 out of 5

Remember comics are to be enjoyed, not destroyed.

James Spader as Ultron

Screen Shot 2013-09-01 at 1.42.47 PM

Marvel has announce a few days ago the actor James Spader will be doing the voice of the villain, Ultron in the next Avenger movie, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”. At first I was a little confussed to the casting but later I found out that Spader will only be doing the voice.

“I knew right away what I wanted to do with him,” Whedon says. “He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, goddamn it, he’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because at some point everybody becomes magic, and I already have someone [a new character, Scarlet Witch] who’s a witch”

Ultron was created by Henry Pym and gradually started to become self aware and rebels against Henry Pym and the Avengers.  At one point Ultron upgrades his body to adamantium making his body almost indestructible.

It will be interesting to see how Joss Whedon plan to transform Ultron to the big screen.
