Comic of the Week 10/6

Well I left you hanging the past couple of weeks, but I'm sure you all made fine purchases being that you've had my guidance and wisdom to carry you through these past few years. This week is a bit of a mixed bag with strong contenders from not only Marvel and DC, but Wildstorm and Dark Horse as well. In the end, as it always does, Batman and Robin trumps all other comics on my list, and we've only had to wait 3 weeks since the last issue!

Comic of the Week

So when we left off, Dick and Damien were being targeted by the Red Hood and Scarlet, but we still didn't know exactly who Red Hood was. Dick called Jason's name, but Hood didn't respond to him. So is it Jason?! I NEED to know. Maybe we'll find out this time. I also mentioned before about how Philip Tan's art might be overshadowed by his predecessor Frank Quitely, and while to an extent it certainly is, I do think that this is some of Tan's best work to date. And at least he can maintain a montly schedule and that in and of itself makes him a rarity in the field. Solicit reads...

Are two Dynamic Duos too much for one city? Batman and Robin find themselves at cross-purposes with Red Hood and Scarlet. Who's right? Who's wrong? And who will end up being the chosen protectors of Gotham City?

Honorable mentions this week go to more Kelley Jones Batman goodness in Batman: The Unseen #1, looks like Moon Knight is finally back to his old self and this makes me happy so give Vengeance of Moon Knight #2 a look, and Warren Ellis and John Cassady's masterpiece Planetary is finally shipping it's last issue, and it's about damn time.
