Batgirl, Volume 5: Art of the Crime – Mairghread Scott

Batgirl, Volume 5: Art of the Crime by Mairghread Scott My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars This graphic novel combines Batgirl #26-29, Batgirl Annual #2 plus an 8 page story from Batgirl #2, which means that it was pretty long (because of the Annual). The Annual storyline focuses on the familial relationship between Barbara Gordon… Continue reading Batgirl, Volume 5: Art of the Crime – Mairghread Scott

Superman – Matt de la Pena

Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt de la Pena My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Although Superman is not one of my favourite superheroes, I did want to see how his origin story would play out. I've never read any of Matt de la Pena's books before, so I had no expectations about his writing style or… Continue reading Superman – Matt de la Pena

Batgirl: Strange Loop – Hope Larson

Batgirl, Volume 4: Strange Loop by Hope Larson My rating: 3 of 5 stars As much as I love Batgirl, I have not been a fan of this run. The stories seem jumbled and not remotely connected. You have to go into this as if you are reading a number of completely standalone tales (or… Continue reading Batgirl: Strange Loop – Hope Larson

Spider-Gwen – Jason Latour (Graphic Novel)

Spider-Gwen, Vol. 0: Most Wanted? by Jason Latour My rating: 3 of 5 stars I feel like I am in the minority about this graphic novel (and character) as she is called the 'breakout character hit of the year' and I'm just not on board. I love Gwen Stacy, but this series just did not… Continue reading Spider-Gwen – Jason Latour (Graphic Novel)

Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu

Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu My rating: 4 of 5 stars Batman: Nightwalker gives us an origin story for the Caped Crusader that we didn't know we needed - even if it doesn't feel like the dark, gritty Batman we know from the Dark Knight or the comics. Bruce is an eighteen-year-old boy who is… Continue reading Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu

Batgirl, Volume 2: Son of Penguin – Hope Larson

Batgirl, Volume 2: Son of Penguin by Hope Larson My rating: 4 of 5 stars I fell in love with Babs again when her story was reintroduced in DC's New 52 and she got a costume redesign. As much as I enjoyed Gail Simone's run, it was the collaboration of Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and… Continue reading Batgirl, Volume 2: Son of Penguin – Hope Larson
