Batman #55: Pick of the Week

JUL180626Tom King is a genius. Hands down, the best writer in comics today next to Jeff Lemire. This week’s ish of Batman (#55) is an excellent illustration of his talents. He does a great job of summing up the dynamic between the original dynamic duo. He sucks you in right away with an enormous amount of pathos. The dialogue is amazing.

And then…

The ending.

Wow.

I still don’t know if it’s real or not.

Doomsday Clock #6

SR7TLpNGeoff Johns and Gary Frank continue to impress with their monumental and universe shattering series, Doomsday Clock. This latest ish sees the Joker running crazy with an unconscious Batman as his captive. We also get the origin story of Marionette and Mime which is shovel to the head stunning and replete with pathos.

Many a fan boy is PO’d about the delayed schedule (once every 60 days or so) but I don’t care. It gives me a chance to read and reread the most magnificent story I have read in decades. It is always well worth the wait!

I can’t wait to see where this going to go…
