Comic Books:
(DC)Harley's Little Black Book: 9/10
Spoiler: show
The hyper-sexualization on the cover deterred me, but I'd heard it was good. A fun read, minus one point for the cover art. Guess it's something I'll need to get used to with comic books. I liked the Harley childhood flashback and her WW obsession.

(DC)Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Four Annual: 9/10
Spoiler: show
This was really cool, and I can't believe I have to wait a whole year for the next one. I do wish there would have been a better protagonist. Plastic Man is cool and all, but there are better options. Considering the cover art pandered to Batman fans with a lot of Batman villains, perhaps Batman could have gone in FOR Plastic Man, as the cover had me expecting Batman to some extent. I guess I really need to get used to misleading covers meant to sell more copies.

(MARVEL)Vader Down Issue One: 9/10
Spoiler: show
Oh my god this was so awesome I love Star Wars. The art was a bit weird, especially Luke's face, it just seemed off, hence the point deduction.

Graphic Novels:
(DC)Justice Vol. 1: 10/10
Spoiler: show
Can we clone Alex Ross so we have an Alex Ross army that can do the art for every comic book? The story was cool too, but the art was just beautiful.

Incoming Graphic Novel reviews:
(DC)Suicide Squad Volume 1: Kicked In The Teeth
(MARVEL)Princess Leia
(MARVEL)Marvel Epic Collection: Star Wars The Old Republic Volume 1

8.9/10 Great Ra´s al Ghul story which has a very pulpy atmosphere. Batman is even somewhat less concerned about his enemies getting killed.

The Visions #1-3

This was not at all what I was expecting from the covers I saw. Never read a Robot Story this creepy before. I love it and have no idea how it will end, which is a nice change from most comics.



9/10

Cat woman defiant

It's a One shot graphic novel. Whilst I like previous ones such as bane and Mr freeze etc, gotta say this said one was awful. Villain was crap, plot was crap and the twist was crap.

Can't believe I wasted £4 on this s***, but at the end of the day, anything is better than the s***piece that is the dark knight strikes again

Speaking of crap comics, batman / superman vol 2 (new 52) was disappointing and strange, not something for my taste I gotta say

Catwoman defiant - 3
Batman / superman Vol 2 - 4.8/10
The Cal-man1 will return .......
