Broken Strongman
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Two Vol. 1 - Tom Taylor,Mike S. Miller,Tom Derenick

Riveting stuff. Superman's rampage continues. He's decided that he needs to rule over mankind so he can keep it safe. Not everyone is down for it, so things come to a head between him and Batman. Heartbreaking, really. Batman will not give up. He's not made that way. Even he will take on a madman with unlimited power. Superman has lost his grip and he's developed a cult of personality around him. Very timely subject matter. Some leaders can do that, and that's when people have to make the truth clear. Even at great cost. Meanwhile, some galactic protectors need to decide if they will get in involved.

Batman is not able to to watch over Gotham (let's leave it at that), so Jim Gordon and his crew take up the mantle, along with the Birds of Prey. They have an asset in their favor to even the odds a little.

I wish I had written this review sooner, but it's so intense and affecting, and I'm not describing it well. Let's just suffice it to say that you can't read these books and be okay afterwards. It's good to be able to say, it's only fiction, and not all the DC books reflect this reality. Let's take this fiction and learn some lessons so we don't repeat these mistakes in real life, okay?

Harley Quinn Vol. 3: Kiss Kiss Bang Stab (New 52) - Chad Hardin,Amanda Conner,Jimmy Palmiotti

This is my favorite one in this series. I'm glad I didn't give up. The silliness is tempered out a bit with good storytelling. Harley is much more of a heroic antiheroine instead of a neutral character who has no concept of right and wrong. Also, we get to see her psychiatrist roots in this book. There is still some gross humor, but not as over the top. Loved the Batman/Bruce Wayne storyline and the lesson about you might not want what you thought you did when you actually get it. A lot of good moments and this one actually had a feel good vibe to it. Not helping my Harley Quinn obsession here, folks.

Dante's Inferno Redux
Constantine: The Hellblazer Vol. 1: Going Down (John Constantine, Hellblazer) - Riley Rossmo,Ming Doyle

A new Constantine series that feels like old Constantine. Nice. Yeah, it's got the tone and the feel of the older series. By that I mean the cringy, it's the "that's not right" feeling I get when I read old Constantine. They haven't cleaned up this version and made him PC for a "kinder" generation. I didn't like the artwork so much. It's a little squiggly for my tastes. Okay, yes I'll keep reading. It's Constantine.

Flash Review: Justice League, Vol. 7: The Darkseid War, Part I
Justice League Vol. 7: Darkseid War Part 1 (Jla (Justice League of America)) - Geoff Johns,Jason Fabok

This was a really good volume of the New 52 Justice League. Darkseid is just one of the Justice League's problems. There are many and their villains are ruthless with no respect for life. The JL has their hands full and I really thought most of them were goners more than once in this book. I hope my library gets the next volume soon.

Flash Review: Batman: Private Casebook
Batman: Private Casebook - Paul Dini,Peter Milligan,Dustin Nguyen,Derek Fridolfs

Another volume of excellent Batman mysteries. Loved the artwork and the storyline is snappy and active, but also emotive. I think Dini's Batman volumes tend to be my favorite.
