Previews and Reviews with Gore Jones

Welcome back to another edition of Previews and Reviews. Pretty good week in comics, some sweet number ones. Lets get to it.

Batgirl #1

Finally the last piece in the "Batman Reborn" books. Batgirl picks up where The Oracle mini-series left off, this time around though we're given a new new Batgirl. I don't want to spoil who the new Batgirl is but I'll tell you you're probably right when you guessed who it could be. The issue itself was fairly good nothing super phenominal but worth the read and another title to look forward to in the absence of Birds of Prey.

Blackest Night Superman #1

What?!?! I'm in love. They're really taking the whole concept beyond what I honestly thought they were going to do with it. Black Lantern Earth 2 Superman and Lois Lane!! The possible Black Lantern Pa Kent??!?! Bananas!!! Did anyone else notice how at one point Superman embodied all the spectrums of light at once? Interesting. Keep it up PLEASE!!!

Daredevil #500

If you've been out of comics, out of the loop or just plain dead, you need to get onto Daredevil and now! Besides the fact that it's been amazing since well forever, this issue in particular is wow! So many things have been building up to this point and when you reach the end of the issue your going to either laugh or cry. Matt Murdock will never ever no matter what happens be the same after this from now on.

by Archaia and Roddenberry, written by Phil Hester comes this really crazy book about the Steward and how he's this Watcher-esque type character who plays a more proactive role in changing events as opposed to sitting back and watching things take course. The book bounces from the Prehistoric era to Babylon to Africa in 2004 during the Swazi Fever outbreak. I was kind of confused at first but after reading it again and really paying attention to detail, I found that it was really well written and I wish this was novel so it would'nt stop after 22 pages. Do yourself a favor and check it out. It's only .99

I've talked about this book before and I've talked about Warren Ellis and I'll continue to do so until I hear that this book sells out at CBJ. There are few books and fewer writers whom I feel deserve the attention of more readers. This book is awesome PERIOD! It's all about how we complain about it being the future and we still don't have flying cars or alien worlds to own real estate on but we have small computers in our pockets that we can use to talk to people half way around the world. The book is about Doktor Sleepless, a simple grinder who sets into motion chaos and rebellion amongst the little lambs that surround him in his city. Do yourself a favor and go read or borrow or buy the first trade and you'll be in love with this book like WOAH!
