I was a bit wary about picking up Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four Vol. 2 by Brian Buccellato, but I’m glad I did. The author gets the series on track, it is a lot of fun and many of the teamup panels are a joy. The Harley Quinn / Billy Batson story-line is hilarious and misguided, as one would expect from Harley Quinn. As it turns out, Billy Batson has lost his power and Harley Quinn is out to help him get it back because she has a crash on his superhero half (or “Shazzy”). The annual, featuring Plastic Man trying to…

About: Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four Vol. 1 by Brian Buccellato is a graphic novel which brings the familiar DC Comics superheroes and Greek gods together again. This graphic novel collects issues #1-6. 168 pages Publisher: DC Comics Language: English ISBN-10: 1401262678   My rating for Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four Vol. 1 – 3 Buy Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four Vol. 1 from Amazon.com* More Books by Brian Buccellato Thoughts: I thought the idea of Zeus facing Superman and the League (the modern Olympus) was a good idea, and was looking forward to see how Brian Buccellato would implement it in Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four Vol. 1. I realized that this would be a demanding story, but I would expect nothing less from my favorite heroes. This graphic novel asks, and tries to answer, a lot of good questions. What would happen if Zeus reveals himself and demand that all religions be abandoned in his favor? How would Superman fair against the Greek gods? How will the world react to proof of the existence of the Greek pantheon? I found the story to be difficult to follow, there are so many twists and shifts in allegiances…

About: DC  Universe: Rebirth #1 by Geoff Johns (illustrated by Gary Frank, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis, and Ethan Van Sciver) is a graphic novel which tries to reinvent the DC Universe as we know it. 96 pages Publisher: DC Comics; Deluxe edition Language: English ISBN-10: 1401270727   My rating for DC  Universe: Rebirth #1 – 4 Buy DC  Universe: Rebirth #1 from Amazon.com* More Books by Geoff Johns* Thoughts: The graphic novel DC  Universe: Rebirth #1 by Geoff Johns (illustrated by Gary Frank, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis, and Ethan Van Sciver) is a great introduction into this phase of the DC Comics story-lines. Even though the story only follows one character, Wally West a.k.a. Kid Flash, it touches on every character he meets across the way and becomes and overarching story-line. It is not a complicated story though, simple to read and understand. While the story-line is simple, there are aspects of it which are difficult to understand unless you read multiple books which most casual fans did not. Three Jokers? Superman Dead but Clark Kent isn’t? Interrogation of some unknown woman? Who is that lady that get blasted to death? And more. I get the point, Wally West is traveling…

About: Batman, Vol 5: Rules of Engagement by Tom King (illustrated by Joëlle Jones) continues the Batman Rebirth story-line. This graphic novel collects Batman #33-37 as well as Batman Annual #2. 160 pages Publisher: DC Comics Language: English ISBN-10: 1401277314 My rating for Batman Vol 5: Rules of Engagement – 5 Buy Batman Vol 5: Rules of Engagement from Amazon.com* More Books by Tom King Thoughts: Batman, Vol 5: Rules of Engagement by Tom King (illustrated by Joëlle Jones) is another solid entry in the Rebirth series. I must admit that this run is absolutely incredible, all five issues so far hit it out of the park. In this volume Mr. King continues to explore Batman and Catwoman’s complex relationship through words and deeds (read: action). This is a very humane book, even though the hero and sometimes heroine spend a fair amount of time beating on the baddies. I loved the spin this volume put on the banal things one has to do when remarrying (meet the ex, talk to the kids, tell friends, etc.), only that Bruce Wayne doesn’t do anything “simple” and Selina Kyle is anything but “banal”. These tasks take on a new meaning in this book, brilliantly told while exploring the relationships of…
