So it turns out that two of the best books of the DCNew52 relaunch are not actually proper DC books after all. With DC pinching more and more of if its imprint ideas, it goes to show that Vertigo is really where they should be focusing their attention – but I’ve already had my big Vertigo rant a few days ago, so let’s talk about the comics instead!

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!

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.

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.

Greetings Bat-Fans! Join me in another edition of my column that stalks the streets of Gotham looking for crime and punching it in the face. I’ll warn you though, you’ll need to put your big boy pants on – it’s not a nicey nice spoiler free zone in here, I’ll be cracking these books in two to reveal all of their gooey centres…

It’s a surprise this didn’t happen earlier – my very own column to talk about the thing I hold most dear in comics – Batman. If you’re new to the blog you’ll already know I read a lot (if not most of) the bat-books from DC, as well as steep myself in as many bat-things as a married man can get away with, so it was only logical that I start a regular post to discuss everything that’s going on in the Bat-verse. Be careful though – SPOILER ALERT! – although I try to keep away from spoilers in my reviews of issues, this feature won’t have such a luxury – so it’s wise to make sure you’ve caught up before going much further.

Issue #2 of Snyder and Paquette’s Swamp Thing is a blinder. With both this book and Animal Man out in the same week I feel like I’m in a Ferrero Rocher advert with Dan DiDio.

Holy Bat-crap! This is the Batman comic we have been waiting for… Or certainly the one I was. And it doesn’t disappoint. Not one bit. Scott Snyder has been making a name for himself as a master Batman writer with his excellent run on Detective comics. Greg Capullo has an impressive past on Spawn. Together, they make an unstoppable dynamic duo.

Ah Swampy. He’s been through quite a lot y’know, the big green fellah. And if Scott Snyder’s recent tweet-fest, combined with the Brightest Day aftermath is anything to go by he’s about to go through a whole lot more, which is why its nice to see that in the midst of the DCnew52 reboot, Swamp Thing #1 has retained a few comfortable features.

Detective Comics is the first of the major Bat comics – It makes sense that DC starts with the comic where it all began. As you’ll soon notice I’m a big Bat-Fan, and the rest of the Comics Anonymous gang are allowing me to review pretty much every Bat-related book in the new 52. Before my review of the comic however, I thought I’d mention a few things I find interesting from before the re-launch as well as how DC have handled the writer/artist combo on the main Batman titles compared to the rest of their New 52.
