Comic I Liked This Week
The new Batman Annnual is an unessential murder mystery. Its only purpose is to serve as pilot for the new Azrael series. (He's Batman, only crazy and murderous). It features probably one of the silliest looking new villains in ages. And I loved every minute of it. People have no idea how refreshing it is just to read a superhero comic that is content with what it is. The superheo element is not treated as a distraction so that we can get to the real story. The superhero action is the real story. Its nice to know that there are still superhero comics that haven't forgotten how to have fun.
