We don’t have to talk about it if you don’t want to. I know, I know, it’s hard on us all. I mean what about our future? I don’t think I have to tell you that this could mean things are going to change between us. It will be difficult and I won’t be able to trust you for a while, but eventually we could go back to the way that things were. Just be patient.
Batman and Robin Eternal #26 (DC)
James Tynion IV (W) Tony S. Daniel (A)
Okay, so seeing as this had a 25% chance of being at the bottom of the list, it’s not so bad that it landed there. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this series isn’t bad. Just not great. With so much talent pulling in different directions, it can only do so much. What it accomplished was great. That being said, after this ends I’m selling the series and moving on from weekly gimmicks.
Daredevil #5 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Ron Garney (A)
I love this series. Looking at the artwork for this issue though, I have to say, Garney’s work is perfect for this book. They got the feel of this comic down pat. They do what comic books do best, take a potentially silly villain and make them into a seriously imposing figure. Ten Fingers is a perfect example of that. I dig it.

Brian K. Vaughan (W) Fiona Staples (A)
This team means the world to me. I will be absolutely heart broken when this series ends. That being said, I don’t see that happening for a while. I actually feel as if I’ve been watching this little girl grow up and that means a whole lot in the scope of things media related. There is a brilliance to simplicity. I mean sure this comic is about a lot of things; War, love, politics, space soap operas. At its core though, it is about one thing, family and the things we do to maintain that bond.

Rick Remender (W) Matteo Scalera (A)
I am so pumped for the end of this arc. I mean sure, it comes along with the piercing agony of a series break, but it was totally worth it for this incredible chapter in an equally phenomenal book. The intimate nature of this arc was exactly the reason I love Rick Remender’s writing. He knows his character’s struggles personally and that shows in the care he puts into writing their pain.
I promise, it wasn’t all your fault. I mean we all wanted to see Batman fight Superman, but I was just expecting more. It’s like you had all the ingredients to make a delightful tiramisu, but you just made shitty coffee and ate marscapone out of a tub. Sure, some people may like that, but most of us don’t. I just want you to try harder. What was the point of Lois’s arc anyway? You know what? It’s fine, just don’t do it again.
