This Week in Comics: Batman takes on Bane’s ridiculous teeth

I know David Finch is a talented artist; I know the anatomical exaggerations on his Batman #20 cover are products neither of carelessness nor inability. And yet, when I see that cover, all I see is teeth. Big, disgusting, teeth. And I can’t help but wonder: can you use regular dental instruments to clean those bad boys, or do you need to special order?

But seriously, Batman #20 was at least an enjoyable read, with great (interior) artwork from Finch, Miki, and Bellaire. Pat Gleason’s lines in Superman #20 weren’t quite as refined as they normally are, but they still looked good, and the issue was fantastic. I still need to read through the rest of my stack, but I’ve really enjoyed everything else so far (save Justice League). How about you? What did you think of this week in comics?

Batman #20

Art by David Finch, Danny Miki, and Jordie Bellaire

…as I read it over and over, I found that there was actually plenty to enjoy beyond the obvious content.

Break from the Bat #14: Grass Kings

Art by Tyler Jenkins

…you won’t find a book that reads easier than this one, because Kindt skillfully layers an impressive amount of detail between the various beats of his deceptively-simple plot.

Grayson, Vol. 5: Spiral’s End

Art by Mikel Janín

I wouldn’t go so far as to call it great, or even entirely satisfying considering the strength of all that came before, but it sure is fun.

Harley Quinn #17

Art by Amanda Conner and Alex Sinclair

The story isn’t anything mind-blowing at this point, but these are characters you just want to spend time with.

Injustice: Ground Zero #9

Art by Steven Segovia

In a strange way this felt a little anti-climactic, so I’m hoping the pay-off is yet to come!

Justice League #18

Art by Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn

The sales might not be close to cancellation territory, but that doesn’t mean the book’s any good.

Nightwing #18

Art by Javier Fernandez and Chris Sotomayor

…this issue feels more like a collection of scenes and ideas than an actual narrative.

Superman #20

Art by Patrick Gleason and John Kalisz

It’s been years since Clark has felt this much like Superman, and now he looks more like Superman than ever before too.
