Off-Topic: Comic Book Reviews For 11-26-2014


This is a comic book production of an episode of the original BATMAN 1966 series that was never aired. I sure wish it had been. The comic book is an amazing, original take on the all-important Batman villain, Twoface. The main story line is the same, but the way Harvey's psychosis manifests is rather original, and fits well with the BATMAN 66 aesthetic. While there weren't many out and out laughs in this issue, it actually went in some original directions without losing that blessed campiness that makes the book work. The art was incredible, especially the cover art, and the colors were out of this world. I love these BATMAN 66 books, and this one is a supreme example of why that is.

Overall: 4.5 Stars

This is the final issue of this book, and I'm sad to see it go. While this ending felt a bit anti-climactic and some of the devices used to make it more climactic fell flat, the character development was simply out of sight. The ending was touching, and full of wisdom, as Terry learns more about his place in this world. The storyline was a little flat, but the dialogue more than made up for it. I want more Batman Beyond!

Marvel's NEW WARRIORS #12
Another good book comes to an end. The sad thing is, this final issue feels like a real beginning, and I loved how the team ended up taking shape. They needed to get to this point faster, though, and some issues just didn't move enough, I guess. I wish we could've seen more, but I like what we got. Hopefully we'll see more of the WARRIORS in other books in the near future.
Storyline: 3.5 Stars
