Let's see if I still remember how to review comics.
When you are feeling stressed out, there is really no better cure than picking up a Daredevil comic. Because no matter how bad your life is going, Matt Murdock's is much, much worse. And his loved ones are having an even rougher time.
So, this concludes the Without Fear story arc. And does it end happily? Oh my goodness no. Not at all. Daredevil confronts Mr. Fear re: the poisoning of Matt's wife, which has turned her into a murdering lunatic. Mr. Fear is a stone-cold badass:
Haha...good one, Fear.
DD is pretty badass too:
Well, that shut him up.
So anyway, Matt punches Fear around and, having beaten him, believes he's going to get the cure for poor Milla. Nope:
And I love that the preview of the next issue is a picture of Daredevil crying in the rain.
Captain America #35
Let's see if my boy Winter Soldier is faring any better than Daredevil this week.
Blue Beetle #24
Love it! Love the cover. Love how much ass Jaime kicked in this comic. Love the Death of Ted Kord motif.
Love Traci 13:
This comic rules.
All-Star Batman and Robin #9
Ok, I wasn't going to say anything about this comic, because I am trying to ignore it. But, seriously...
WTF, DC?! Why are you even allowing this?! I don't care who's writing it or how "legendary" they are...this is just wrong.
Well, at least this was some awesome Batman. I like it when Batman just does something really, really cool. Like this:
I liked how this issue ended too. Bruce Wayne is clever.
Teen Titans #56
This issue was really entertaining. I've been pretty underwhelmed by McKeever's Titans run so far, while at the same time being very impressed with his Birds of Prey writing. So of course he's leaving Birds of Prey. When McKeever was announced as the new writer of Titans, I thought it would be perfect, and this is the first issue of his run that had the level of fun I was expecting. The Titans are teenagers! This title should be two things:
b) a soap opera
I think we are getting there.
In this issue Kid Devil decides to invite some fans from a Kid Devil message board to Titans Tower for a party...with hilarious results!
I particularly loved this little detail, with Robin bitching Kid Devil out from home:
And, of course, Batman getting prank called:
Saying "Your Mom" to Batman is funny for so many reasons...
New Frontier DVD
And, of course, New Frontier came out on DVD this week. In case you forgot. You should buy at least one copy. You won't be disappointed.
There were lots of other good comics this week too. I actually haven't gotten to Nexus #100 yet. I'm saving it. It's going to be rad.
