Graphic Novel Review: Harley Quinn Vol. 2: Power Outage (The New 52) by Amanda Conner and‎ Jimmy Palmiotti

I enjoyed the stories were the fourth wall is being broken and Harley is out in the real world, my favorite was the story where she goes to Comic-Con, it was very funny and I’m sure there were many gags I didn’t even get (bonus points for including Bruce Timm and Paul Dini).

Graphic Novel Review: Harley Quinn and Power Girl by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti

I liked Harley Quinn in her debut in Batman: The Animated Series, one of the few characters in comics who transitioned well from TV to comic books (and not the other way around). She has become an iconic character and, no disrespect to Margot Robbie’s excellent interpretation of the character in Suicide Squad, all the fans probably hear the voice of actress Arleen Sorkin in their heads.

Graphic Novel Review: Batwoman Volume 6: The Unknowns by Marc Andreyko

The Unknowns are a strange team up, which frankly I enjoyed. Clayface was my new favorite, and The Demon Etrigan is always fun to read. I don’t believe that Batwoman needed a team though, I enjoyed it much more when she was played off as being on the fringes of the Bat family, working alongside them but not with them.

Graphic Novel Review: Batwoman Vol. 1: The Many Arms of Death (Rebirth) by Marguerite Bennett and James IV Tynion

I believe that the Kate Kane Batwoman will become one of DC Comics most successful new characters

Graphic Novel Review: James Bond: Felix Leiter by James Robinson

I was excited from the first time I head the plans to make a standalone Felix Leiter story. With all the trepidations and pre-judgements that came with the announcement, only one thought, and one thought only, was on my mind – about damn time!

Graphic Novel Review: Batwoman, Vol. 3: World’s Finest by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman

I really like where the writers of the issue were going with the characters and the world they built around them. Kate Kane, Batwoman, refused to join the Batman team when asked, and only wears his symbol as a source of her inspiration.

Graphic Novel Review: Batwoman, vol. 1: Hydrology by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman

I really enjoyed this storyline, a troubled hero (seems like they all are these days) who thinks she’s going to solve some societal problems while taking out her angst on everyone around while protected behind a mask.
