Howard Chaykin tells a serious and pessimistic tale about terrorist attacks on the US and the consequences of such an attack. Using a “Dirty Dozen” type theme, he depicts an awful society with no redeeming or sympathetic characters. With much violence, blood-letting, swearing and sexual scenes, this...

I'm not sure what the difference is between the Helix imprint and the Vertigo imprint at DC comics, but this is put out by Helix. And I remembered it fondly, but don't think I fully understood this when I read it as a teen. I'm astounded by just how much this packs into one issue. Set in a ...

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that I picked this up relatively quickly after reading the old original run of Iron Fist. On the negative side, the character has changed a little bit... okay, a lot bit in the 30-plus years since he was created. He's less naive about some things, a...

The second volume of Batman: Black & White is much like the first. Editor Mark Chiarello gathers together some of the most acclaimed writers and artists who then produce short stories about The Dark Knight. While I didn’t find the overall experience as strong as the first collection, there were st...

As his burried memories of his time as an assassin start to resurface no-one is ...

This was pretty good. An interesting take on Batman where Barbara Gordon, trust fund child becomes Batgirl and Gotham's heroine with Dick Grayson as her Robin. Bruce Wayne is a penniless cop after his family lost it all in the Great Depression. Sounds great, but the author really puts out a very con...
