Wow, it’s been quite a long time since I’ve graced the internet with my words of not-so-much wisdom about comic books. We’ve gone through another Civil War, the Inhumans and X-Men were on the verge of wiping each other out, Spider-Man’s clones have come and gone, and here we are still waiting for Captain America’s master plan to come to fruition. Since it’s been literal months since I’ve shared my thoughts each week on one select book, I want to catch everyone up on some of what I’ve been reading, my thoughts on a few of the event books, and how I want to continue writing about comics.

As far back as I can remember in comics there’s always been a divide between two of the biggest publishers in comics, Marvel and DC. It’s a rivalry that’s made comics as a whole better and more enjoyable and pushed each publisher to make incredible characters and stories. Each year we see events and story lines that are created to help sell comics; Marvel trying to do a spring and summer event, each tying together and making it a whole year thing. From afar this seems like a smart idea, keep readers engaged and have it create massive change for their characters, but has it gone too far?
DC Rebirth is here to set the DC Universe back on track with all new #1’s taking place 1 year after their respective series. This is also to give time to wrap up the other ongoing books or have their stories catch up. I’ll be honest, I haven’t read a Batman book in a long time but Batman #1 feels like the start of a great series and I think stays true to the character. Going forward there may be some spoilers but like my last review, which you can check out here, I’ll try to keep them to a minimum.
