Baturday: 1/14/17 in Batman

Happy Baturday, everyone!  It’s that time of the week again.  Time for your healthy dosage of all things Batman and Batman-related.  Here are my thoughts on this huge week of comic book releases:

 

Gotham Academy: Second Semester #5 – My Rating: 3/5

Earth 2: Society #20 – My Rating: 4/5

All-Star Batman #6 – My Rating: 5/5

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #6 – My Rating: 4/5

Detective Comics #948 – My Rating: 5/5

Red Hood and the Outlaws #6 – My Rating: 5/5

Justice League of America: Vixen: Rebirth #1 (One-Shot) – My Rating: 4/5

Justice League Vs Suicide Squad #4 (of 6) – My Rating: 5/5

Suicide Squad #9 – My Rating: 4/5

New Super-Man #7 – My Rating: 4.5/5

Titans #7 – My Rating: 5/5

Deathstroke #10 – My Rating: 4.5/5

Justice League / Power Rangers #1 (of 6) – My Rating: 3/5

 

 

…and my pick of the week is…  ALL-STAR BATMAN!!!

 

It was nice to see All-Star Batman finally get an artist that didn’t make me almost not buy (or read) the first arc (which actually wasn’t too bad if you can get past the horrendous art).  And the Justice League Vs Suicide Squad story just took a crazy turn with the Eclipso twist.  I’m loving Max Lord more than ever.  Not going to lie, Justice League / Power Rangers was a pretty terrible (not to mention obvious) cash grab, but it’s just a miniseries, so we’ll see how much I can deal with the pain.  Lots of solid titles from the Rebirth over at DC.  Do yourself a favor and get caught up with either the back issues or the collections on the stands.  You won’t regret your decision, especially if you’re picking up the Batman titles.  See you next Baturday!

My own ratings align with yours pretty well, so when I see JL/Power Rangers with the lowest rating that confirms for me I will skip it.

it wasn’t horrific by any means, just really, really dumb. i could have seen it as maybe (MAYBE) a one-shot or a graphic novel, but a miniseries (with 7 covers) for each issue is just downright offensive to lifelong collectors and completists. but that’s the one weak spot in an otherwise great week!
