Graphic Novel Review: Teen Titans Vol. 1: Damian Knows Best by Benjamin Percy

I felt this story is a cliché, the Teen Titans accept Damian as some sort of leader, while teaching him a few social graces, while making him realize that he doesn’t need to be a jerk all the time.

The story in this graphic novel takes on too much, some stories are simply loosely tied together and are overly complex for what it is. I enjoyed the relationship between Jon and Damian but I think a less bombastic mission/adventure would have played better.

I really enjoyed the backstory of Bucky, the writer made him much more of a badass than what I imagined (Bucky, not the Winter Soldier).

Graphic Novel Review: Batman Vol 4.: The War of Jokes and Riddles (Rebirth) by Tom King

Mr. King lets The Joker and The Riddler to shine in this issue. I have never found The Riddler to be much of a challenge in previous incarnations, but this Riddler is a true equal to The Joker, just as manipulating, devious and evil.
