Classic Comics: Batman Hush, Volume 2

Writer: Jeph Loeb; Penciller: Jim Lee; Inker: Scott Williams; Letterer: Richard Starkings; Colorist: Alex Sinclair;The star-studded Hush storyline comes to an epic conclusion in Volume 2 and it does not disappoint. It’s a sprint to the finish as the stakes are raised higher and higher in the second half of the story. Operas. Why do they […]

Show Review: Gotham, “Penguin’s Umbrella”

The Penguin Is Alive and Well I guess we’re left to our own devices on what transpired after Oswald got done reintroducing himself. I can only imagine it included some yelling and a very awkward release by Montoya and her partner.  Bullock is that pissed off that he’d shoot Gordon in the precinct? Corrupt or […]

Right now, the best thing to do is run the show through the baddies in Gotham with a sprinkling of Gordon. Unfortunately, […]

Show Review: Gotham, Ep. 3 “The Balloonman”

Previous iterations state it’s the death that started the downward spiral.  This television series was advertised as the story of Gotham before Batman. It was […]

Show Review: Gotham, Ep. 2
