Batman: The Man Who Laughs

Batman: The Man Who Laughs I was handed this by a friend who had given it a high amount of praise. When I saw that Ed Brubaker had written it, I couldn’t blame him! Of course it’s going to be awesome, it has Brubaker’s name attached to it.So, before I cracked open this graphic novel, I knew…

Gotham Central Vol. 3

Gotham Central Vol 3: On The Freak Beat I honestly didn’t expect to love this series as much as I did when I started it. The fact that you’re asking me to read about Gotham but you’re not going to give a whole lot of love to The Dark Knight himself? Blasphemy! Turns out when…

Gotham Central Vol. 2

Incognito: Bad Influences

Ed Brubaker’s Incognito: Bad Influences After I put down Incognito a few months back, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the sequel. Unfortunately, I was on the bottom of the list when it came to borrowing it from my local library. Instead of running to my local Chapters and snagging it as soon…

Sleeper: Season Two

Ed Brubaker’s Sleeper: Season Two I had a feeling I wouldn’t be disappointed. That being said, considering how strong season one had been, the doubt still lingered in the back of my mind. Could Phillips and Brubaker create something as strong as the original? The answer: Yes! Season one ends with Holden Carver’s own personal Empire Strikes Back.…

Criminal (Vol. 1)

Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips’ Criminal There is a villan in this graphic novel named Roy L. T.. I mean seriously, that’s awesome.  Leo is a career criminal – Hell, it runs in his family!
