The Ballad of Kite Man
Batman Vol. 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles (Rebirth) - Tom King,Mikel Janin

Tom King writes superhero stories about psychological trauma, not just as a plot element but as a raison d'etra. In books like Vision and Mister Miracle the psychological trauma is the engine of the plot. In his new series Heroes in Crisis an attempt to recover from trauma leads to far greater trauma. Batman: the War of Jokes and Riddles reveals a story from Batman's second year as a hero. The Joker and the Riddler go to war, not for control of Gotham City, but over who gets to kill Batman. Every name villain in Gotham gets roped into the fight on one side or the other, hundreds of civilians are killed in the crossfire, and Batman is forced to compromise his core values to try an end the war. Despite the death toll, in places it reads like an homage to the old Batman TV series from 1966, with Batman trading punches with bad guys with "POW" sound effects. In the end Batman is so traumatized he feels like his whole incorruptible persona is a sham.

 

Oh, and it is the origin story of Kite Man.

Jokes: Clean Jokes For Everyone by Joy I. Johnson
Jokes: Family Jokes, Husband-Wife Jokes, Jokes for Kids, Boss-Employer Jokes, Couple Jokes, Clean Jokes for Everyone - Joy I Johnson

Cute.
Though the book says these jokes are for everyone, there were a couple I wouldn't tell small children. They were pretty clean for the most part, and I even laughed out loud a few times. 
There were a couple jokes I had heard before, so I'm not sure how original they are but maybe more of a compilation of jokes heard, Still it as nice to tickle my funny bone for a few minutes.

101 So Bad, They're Good Dad Jokes
101 So Bad, They're Good Dad Jokes - Eli... 101 So Bad, They're Good Dad Jokes - Elias Hill For those of us who spend a little too much time looking up bad jokes to tell our kids (and unsuspecting coworkers), ninety percent of the jokes in this book will be familiar. It's a decent collection of truly groan-worthy jokes that will sometimes make you giggle, and sometimes make you wish you'd never opened the book.

Definitely not a book you want to read straight through, but a good one to keep on your phone to pull out for inspiration when you need to elicit an eye-roll from your child while you're waiting for food or whatnot.

But dad jokes? Nahh, these are 'bad joke lover jokes' and that's a group that includes more than just dads. I should know, I count myself as a proud part of that group!

A fun book for the right audience.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for review consideration.

Batman Vol. 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles (Rebirth)
Batman Vol. 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles (Rebirth) - Tom King,Mikel Janin In Zero year the city of Gotham was left with no power, for a year and The Riddler ruled the night. When power was restored a war began to claim Gotham City’s underworld and the right to kill Batman between The Riddler and The Joker. This story was kept a secret but now Batman tells Catwoman what exactly happened in the Zero war.

Batman Vol. 4 The Of Jokes and Riddles is (Rebirth) written by Tom King and illustrated by Mikel Janin. The art in this graphic novel is fantastic and does a great job setting a dark mood for the story. Looking at it made me feel like I was reading an old 1930’s Noir mystery.

The story has all of Gotham’s criminals in it and non stop action. What’s most interesting in the story is the idea that the Joker can’t laugh and The Riddler can’t tell riddles until Batman is killed. The story is simple and entertaining with the art complimenting it perfectly.

One of the best lines in this book comes from Catwoman. When asked why she hasn’t picked a side in the war she answers that she doesn’t want to work with them because they are criminals. She then corrects herself by saying they’re unsuccessful criminals. Another great scene has The Joker and The Riddler describing what they plan to do with Batman as Batman listens to them as Bruce Wayne. During this scene the dialogue is excellent with The Riddler giving an elaborate plan to kill Batman while The Joker just says he’s just going to simply strangle him and that’s it. If you’re a Batman fan this is a must have book.

Fortunately, I've posted a new review
Fortunately, the Milk - Neil Gaiman,Skottie Young

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman with illustrations by Skottie Young is simply delightful. It's hard for me to decide which was more enjoyable: the writing or the drawings. Honestly, I think that the reason I enjoyed this book so much was that the two of them paired so well together. This is exactly the kind of story that an imaginative parent would tell their child and embellish over time. The main character of this book is a father who is left alone to watch the kids and who goes out to get milk for breakfast and takes forever to get back home.When he finally returns he spins an impossible yarn to explain his tardiness to his extremely skeptical children. Anyone who has read Gaiman's writing knows that he's an absolutely wonderful fantasy author but it's his sense of humor that makes this book unique. Maybe you've heard of 'dad jokes' before? Well, this is basically one big dad joke accompanied by super cute ink illustrations. 10/10 on all fronts.

 

I absolutely love the illustrations by Skottie Young. This is another one of those books where you want to hang up the illustrations on the wall of your house...at least I do.
