This Week in Comics: Batman shoots a torpedo

I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard that All-Star Batman had some delightfully bonkers moments this week. Including something about Captain Batman…? That sounds good enough for me, and I’ll need to get on the ball and read it myself soon. Did you read it? What did you think?

Teen Titans was par for the course, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Benjamin Percy hasn’t quite knocked it out of the park on the series yet, but neither has he delivered any stinkers. It’s always enjoyable at a minimum, and you can’t take that kind of consistency for granted in this industry.

All-Star Batman #12

Art by Sebastian Fiumara

In the moment, this issue is enjoyable, but it doesn’t feel like much happens to progress the story.

Batgirl #13

Art by Dan Mora

This one isn’t winning any prizes, but it’s easy to read and well-drawn and tells a cute (albeit somewhat nonsensical) story.

Batman/The Shadow #4

Art by Steve Epting

At the end of the day, it just feels too far removed from the previous issues.

Batman Beyond #10

Art by Dave Johnson

Jurgens continues to deliver a great read with “Rise of the Demon.”

Detective Comics #961

Art by Rafael Albuquerque

While the exchanges crafted by Tynion between Bruce and Zatanna have been my favorite sections of the “Intelligence” storyline thus far,  Alvaro Martinez and his artwork totally won this particular issue.

Justice League of America #11

Art by Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo

The improvements in plot, characterization, and purpose actually make me excited for the next arc

…coming to terms with the fact that Batman can’t figure [The Shadow] out, and will not be able to…and facing his own mortality in that respect…is a large part of the book.

Suicide Squad #22

Art by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Adriano Lucas

The further we fall into a narrative where we’re forced to believe Harley can actually function as a leader, the more this book will unravel.

Teen Titans #10

Art by Paolo Pantalena and Arif Prianto

Teen Titans #10 follows the same path as so many of its predecessors, getting off to a rocky start before finishing strong.
