Hey! This week was my birthday! I am now a little bit older again. I had a big BBQ at my house on Saturday, which meant that the podcast that I recorded at work on Friday did not get dealt with until now. Sorry about that.
I read the Bat universe stuff for this episode and was overall pretty darn happy. I really liked Catwoman, even if that makes me a bad feminist. I also understand the anger that Starfire is drawing. I mean really, does her armor need nipples? REALLY?
Other than that though, I actually enjoyed that comic, sort of in spite of the characters.
I like the new Batman a lot, though it was sort of darker than I was expecting. There is talk about how this new reboot is more violent in general than the age ratings would have you think. I sort of have to agree, and though I liked the story and the art, I do feel that it really pushes that T rating
Birds of Prey I’ll have to wait and see on. I really liked the previous series, but with all these new characters, I’m having trouble caring so far. Fingers crossed.
Also, not in the Bat-o-verse, but I read the new Wonder Woman. And dug it. I really need to read more Brian Azzarello. This story hooks me instantly, and I can’t wait for the next issue.
Ok, bedtime looms. I am really excited about this coming week’s releases though. One of the titles I have been looking forward to the most, Justice League Dark, is coming as well as All Star Western, Superman, Aquaman, and a bunch of other pretty cool looking stuff. Talk to you soon
