    but in a more detailed approach more in line with mainstream DC books Levitz also nails the tone of the animated series just right the SF setting makes the action more fantastical but that fantasy is run through with a really brutal streak It s a merciless world the future of the Batman Beyond animated series many of Superman and Batman s friends are long dead There s also a tendency for villains to end up lost beneath piles of rubble or in explosions Batman never kills anyone directly but a lot of his enemies are last seen in circumstances they re unlikely to survive There s less of the latter in this issue as a central plot point holds a different fate for the bad guys but the future is pretty grim What s interesting and counter intuitive is that mainline DC books have become so bleak misanthropic and generally unpleasant in the years since BB went off the air that this dystopian future now seems like a light and fun alternative to the current DCU the future may be grim but at least this is a DC book where no one gets raped or has a limb torn off or gives a long speech justifying torture or any of the other adolescent nonsense clogging up DC s current best sellers Nowadays the smog of future Gotham feels like a breath of fresh air I suspect that says more about the state of the current DCU than the virtues of Batman Beyond but nonetheless I wouldn t mind seeing more stories set in this relatively cheery dark future especially if written by Levitz Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share Superman Batman Annual 4 Tags Batman Batman Beyond Comics DC Jose Wilson Paul Levitz Renato Guedes Superman Superman Batman Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter

    New Dawn has a lot going on tonally switching from the sinister attacks of Tut to near slapstick with the Riddler José Luis García López s fantastic pencils inked by Kevin Nowlan with his usual artistry and lushly coloured by David Baron knit the whole thing together with humour menace and even a certain sexiness thankfully of a relatively innocent kind that never descends into the realms of cheesecake It s a lovely book to look at Adam West apparently considers King Tut to be the only villain especially created for the Batman TV show who really worked This reinvention really works too and hopefully A New Dawn won t be a one off appearance Three issues being a bit stingy for an entire trade paperback DC have included what they describe as three rare treasures featuring the art of José Luis García López These treasures are three early 80s stories from The Brave and the Bold and Batman All three are pretty silly and don t make a whole lot of sense two are written by Gerry Conway read into that fact what you will but they re simple fun and even early García López art demonstrates much of the clean line and flair for composition that he s well known for King Tut s Tomb is a well put together collection of decent Batman stories with lovely art Well worth a look Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share Batman King Tut s Tomb Tags Batman Christina Weir Comics DC José Luis García López Kevin Nowlan King Tut The Riddler One Response Tweets that mention Batman King Tut s Tomb Shiny Shelf Topsy com says May 14 2010 at 9 26 am This post was mentioned on Twitter by Shiny Shelf Shiny Shelf said Batman King Tut s Tomb King Tut s Tomb collects three issues of Batman Confidential smartly re inventing a http bit ly ddzoAE RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One

  • Batman: The Black Casebook | Shiny Shelf
    but presented as a collection of oddball stories they make a lot more sense Less interesting to me are the mythology stories tales which explore the existence of Batman style superheroes in other lands from the Native American Man of the Bats to the Knight and the Squire of the UK It seems they re included here because Morrison used these forgotten characters in his later run and the same goes for The First Batman which explores Bruce Wayne s father Some of these stories were interesting but the fact that they re included solely because of characters they introduce means they re not as fascinating as the stories chosen for their content That said they may be of more interest to Batman fans Two stories The Rainbow Creature and The Batman Creature were apparently included because Morrison liked the covers They re quite mad but again nothing compared to the crazy stories mentioned above Ultimately they feel like run of the mill superhero comics only unusual because they featured the normally grounded Batman That may sound like a criticism but it s not really The range of stories in the volume comes as a surprise considering its central premise and that s certainly a strength In the end it s a nostalgic volume which benefits from modern hindsight You ll need to do a lot of the work yourself to see the streak of darkness running through the volume since the comics themselves are presented like any other kids comics but once you see it it s addictive Line Break By Steffan Alun Share The Black Casebook is opened by StAlun shinyshelf Tags Batman Comics DC Grant Morrison One Response Tweets that mention Batman The Black Casebook If Grant Morrison s introduction is to be believed the comics chosen for DC s The Bl Topsy com says May 7 2010 at 12 57 pm This post was mentioned on Twitter by Shiny Shelf Shiny Shelf said Batman The Black Casebook If Grant Morrison s introduction is to be believed the comics chosen for DC s The Bl http bit ly a2qMno RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our

  • First Wave #1 | Shiny Shelf
    is no great hook here to get you to come back for the next issue Doc Savage s father s body is missing The Spirit finds himself facing 4 bad guys at the airport A jungle village is decimated in search of a rogue scientist I can t say that I found any of it particularly intriguing Another nitpick I came across was with the apparent anachronisms throughout the issue Perhaps this is intentional but I found it jarring Early on a reporter asks Doc Savage if one of his breakthroughs will mean space flight is finally possible This would mean the time frame is perhaps 1950 s America Even the style of dress for many of the primary characters fits this But then the reporters are holding up portable microcassette recorders which were not invented until the very late 1960s The cars themselves while sporting a retro look late 50s 60s In one panel a black man walks down the street with an afro and a pick in his hair a 1970s trend The very next panel has a woman talking on a phone with buttons which looks like it is from the 80s In the same panel one of her kids is wearing a sports jersey and with a soda can and there are candles on the walls instead of a lamp Perhaps I m not the typical reader but these anachronisms kept popping out at me and perhaps these are intentional But if not it takes you out of the story because the world of First Wave just appears wrong But the nitpicks are not the biggest failing in this issue if they were then they would be easy to overlook But there are bigger flaws at work here and they can only be directed at the script Azzarello is a highly regarded writer in the industry and with him being the motivating force behind the creation of First Wave it makes this issue even more so disappointing Azzarello may be excited to bring us this unique project but it doesn t show through in the tepid script And that s the issue s greatest sin of all Line Break By Julio Angel Ortiz Julio Angel Ortiz maintains his collection of curiosities at www julioinprogress com You can also Like him on Facebook as well and check out his latest writing projects Share First Wave 1 Tags Batman Brian Azzarello Comics Doc Savage First Wave Pulp Rags Morales The Spirit One Response Tweets that mention First Wave 1 Shiny Shelf Topsy com says May 5 2010 at 9 06 am This post was mentioned on Twitter by Shiny Shelf Shiny Shelf said First Wave 1 First a disclaimer I know very little about Doc Savage I was always partial to the Shadow myself http bit ly aLGTAM RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK
