New short animation from Bruce Timm celebrates the 75th Anniversary of DC’s Dark Knight and it’s a doozy. Moody, old school black and white sees Batman take on those pesky criminals head-on like we’d expect.

After picking up #1 (reviewed here) and enjoying this video game tie-in it was almost a given that I would get #2 to see how things went – was #1 a fluke or was this really a hidden gem from DC?

A comic book that ties into an up and coming DC game has all the early indications of being a typical attempt at a marketing exercise….where there’s no real gain or effort expected from what seems to be a throwaway release to get the game name out there……and I have to admit I was on the fence on whether to get this title or not………in this case I caved, I bought it and read issue #1.

Scientists have proven that the chances of Batman appearing on our Best of lists each year is the same as getting socks at Christmas. Yay for science….and Batman!

Hot off the heals from the success of last year’s Superman Earth One, DC released its next original graphic novel this week featuring the new beginnings of Batman. With Geoff Johns and Gary Frank on board as a writer and artist respectively, this book gives off a whiff of quality – even the hardback cover contains three different textures on it - but are the contents up to scratch? Both Craig and Gary review…

It’s Sunday afternoon of Kapow! 2012 and Scott Snyder sits down to chat to us in a ‘WWBD’ t-shirt (with the bat logo below it) – we’re probably the last people he wants to be chatting to, since he was out to the small hours of the night before with his Detective Comics buddy Jock, drinking and eating hot dogs. ‘It seemed like a brilliant idea at the time’ – at least we know he got a taste of the UK comic scene at it’s best. Hangover aside, Scott was nice enough to answer the many questions we had about all the titles he’s working on just now.

We’re just recovering from the weekend and coming to terms with having to be back to work today, but here’s Gary and Craig’s look back at what the second day of the Glasgow Comic Con had to offer. Make sure to check our Day 1 coverage too, since there’s loads of revealing bits from Mr Grant Morrison about his upcoming Multiversity series in there too.

A few months back I performed an exorcism on my DC comic buying habits, getting rid of some of the books that I’d been getting since the relaunch just because. I managed to whittle it down, leaving only 10 titles – something I’ve managed to stick to, with the exception of a couple of the second wave titles. However there was a title I did re-think when doing my first monthly order since the cull – Batman and Robin. Was it worth keeping and is the recent issue #10 any good?

Ten months ago we got 52 new DC comics. From the start it was easy to see those books that had a structured plan of where they were going, and those that were simply meandering along, getting by on a simple plot thread. Lucky for us, Scott Snyder is a master of planning, knowing each and every step Batman would take from when we started back in issue #1 so that now, 9 issues later with everything aligned, he can start to give us even bigger twists and turns. Some spoilers ahead.

A couple of months back I wrote a review on the digital comic Avengers vs. X-Men: Infinite #1, heralding it as the future of digital comics and singing Marvel’s praises for being the first to think outside of the box with digital comics. The same week I also downloaded and read DC’s new Smallville comic, but didn’t review this because it would have probably consisted of me banging my fist against the keyboard. Repeatedly. This week however, saw the first in a series of original Batman digital comics, titled Legends of the Dark Knight, and since it involved 3 of my favourite people (Batman, Jeff Lemire and Damon Lindelof) I was pretty excited to read it.
