Comic of the Week
Back to comics though, I never imagined I'd be saying this, but I'm actually enjoying somebody other than Bruce being Batman! And it's all because of the interaction between Dick and Damien as Batman and Robin respectively. They are just plain fun to read together and I get the feeling that the writers on the Bat-titles are having just as much fun writing them. Normally I love Quitely's art, but if I had to make one minor nitpick for this comic, I'm afraid that would be it. I don't really like how he draws the Bat-costume "hanging" off of Batman. It's hard to describe, but if you've seen it then you know what I'm talking about. The solicit for issue #2 says...
"In a blazing Gotham City police department, the new Batman and Robin face the bizarre, fighting freakshow that is the Circus of Strange and find that they don�t make as good a team as Batman had hoped! Meanwhile, the mysterious Sasha escapes from Professor Pyg and vows vengeance on the people who killed her father."
Honorable mention this week goes to the first issue of James Robinson's Justice League miniseries, Cry for Justice. I have high hopes for it.
