Review

In Batman: Last Knight on Earth #2, the World’s Greatest Detective dives to new depths in order to uncover the truth and find out who destroyed the world he once protected. In his search for answers, however, the Dark Knight finds that that the situation is much more complicated–much more dire–than initially thought.

As long as this one doesn’t go off of the rails next issue (I am confident that it won’t), Batman: Last Knight on Earth will go down in the books as one of the greatest–and certainly, most imaginative–Batman stories ever told. Thus far, Scott Snyder has managed to take the familiar, destroy it, and reconstruct something that’s both deviant and exciting. This series is another Dark Knight deconstruction story, sure, but we readers haven’t seen a deconstruction quite like this one.

Surely, the best is yet to come, and with one issue left to tie this tale up, I’m eager to find out what’s waiting at the last stop of this apocalyptic thrill ride.

Bottom Line

An apocalyptic thrill ride, Batman: Last Knight on Earth remains a must-read series.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
