Ze rules:

Post your review in the forum thread or in the comments section here on the front page.

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it under $3.99.

Batman was... okay.

I liked how they introduced Nygma and seeing Batman still learning while fighting the Red Hood gang. Of course, I was somewhat expecting to see Nygma as the leader of the gang. Maybe... but I'm not 100% sold on the Batman Begins-ish "legally dead", Bruce Wayne's uncle, the time jumps...

And what was up withthe kid in the beginning and Batman's short-sleeved new look (I guess they need more fodder for action figures. Between this and Day Glo Batman with Weed Killer action feature from Layman's series...)? It Just felt odd to me. I'm assuming it'll be explained down the road, but still..

Still on the fence with this.

I'm a little torn, Snyder has been doing really good things on Batman since it was Detective and writing Dick. I really wish he was still writing Dick. This issue doesn't feel like much really happens. It's different enough from year one that it is a different take on Bruce's origin since after all it is the NU52 origin which is of course totally different than the actual origin of Batman that we know...except it isn't. Not much really happens in this issue. Bruce is still trying to figure out how to be batman and we already knew Riddler was going to be the center of the arc and now we know he isn't part of the Red Hood Gang or is he? For the first time in a very long time I'm not totally hook line and sinker for batman. I still love Snyder's batman work but for right now I don't know that I am in love with Snyder's Batman.

6.3


Muwahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahhahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahaha I get to pick next week.

So do I choose Brother Lono? Age of Ultron? My little Pony? Or Indestructable Hulk?

Yeah, I'm going to say Age of Ultron #10. Because Spacemen was one of the most frustrating reads. Oh and because I unlike god exist and just like your mythical deity I hate you all.

I read the preview, I'm changing my pick to Brother Lono #1. But there is still no god.

Well, Batman was pretty good. I admit my expectations were very low for this as the last few issues have been sub-par. While it is just a slight rehash of something we've all seen before, I think Snyder did a good job at refreshing the content. I really liked the scene where he was surounded by the Red Hood Gang at first, but eventually I thought what happened seemed to be a little exaggerated. The scene where Bruce was a kid and his dad gave him the mapping thing would be forgettable, but it seems like that will be important in the creation of the Batcave. The Riddler is one of my favorites so I can't wait to see more of him. Capullo's art is great as always, though I still miss Glapion a lot. I found the backup to be pretty forgettable, but I do like how they are going to show short stories of Bruce's training. Overall, it was not that bad and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Batman #21

This wasn't bad, but I can't say it's really my cup of tea. I can read and stories featuring Batman, but I can't say that I've ever been a huge fan of stories in with Bruce Wayne is front and center. That is the case with this issue of course, it's primarily about Bruce Wayne instead of Batman. It's not something that will make me automatically hate a story, but it's also really unlikely that I'll love that sort of story.

Having said that, there are some things that I did like. The opening sequence, set six years ago in Gotham, was pretty cool, as one example. I'm not sure how it fits in with the rest of the story, but I figured I feel that way because I haven't been reading this series up to now. I'm sure if I had been that the opening scene would make all kinds of sense.

Like I said, it's not bad and I'll give it a 6 out of 10.

Batman Vol 2 #21:

I actually really liked the 0 issue of Batman a while back, and I am happy to see that they are going back to the Red Hood guy, he seems like fun. Other than that, though, meh. I don't mind this being a Bruce story, but there really didn''t seem to be anything new going on here. On top of all that, for something that is trying to be compared to Year One, the art was massively sub par.

I'm interested enough in Year Zero to keep reading, in spite of this issue.

4/10
