Ten Thoughts About Ten Comics – Batman And Robin, Sherlock Holmes, Crossed, Before Watchmen, Caligula, Change, Dan The Unharmable, Amazing Spider-Man, Fantastic Four And Avengers Arena

Batman #13 did this more subtly, but Batman And Robin #15 goes straight for the Killing Joke.

Sherlock Holmes: Liverpool Demon #1 lays out its stall. Supernatural crime, met by a man without an ounce of belief in that regard, as he ably demonstrates…

Crossed Badlands #19 begins a new Si Spurrier Crossed story, with a story in the early days of the Crossed with one such infected individual who doesn’t quite behave as other Crossed. Flashbacks and a narration from an ex-lover provide us the context and even a love story across, well, greater boundaries that have ever been… crossed before.

Before Watchmen: Dr Manhattan begins to put it all back in the box. All the myriad of parallel universe that have been spilling out, trying to repair the resultant realities like… a watch. Do you see what he did there? JMS is also looking to address the seeming contradiction of a man who can do anything being restricted by the future. Destiny vs Free Will all over again.

The new Caligula series continues to give us the cop-in-Rome-well-out-of-his-league but this time takes him off the force to go private for a certain client. Rome Noir. And we get to have some fun with the kids…

Change #1 fives us one character dealing with an unpleasant image… by given as an even worse image. Thank you Change, I really mean that. No, really.

Dan The Unharmable takes up amateur puppet theatre it seems. A nasty comic with a big heart.

Okay, this. How can anyone say this sentence from Amazing Spider-Man #699.1 without screaming to the local village and demanding pitchforks and flaming torches.

One of the more disturbing elements of Fantastic Four #2. They’ve captured Moon Boy and stuck him in a stasis cell. Moon Boy! There’s all sorts of parallels with Jack Kirby one could bring up, if you so wish. And I wish.

Avengers Arena. Hey, it’s a teen slasher comic, you can’t have violence without the sex.
