Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #1

Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #1 comic reviewObviously taking place before the events of Red Hood and the Outlaws #13, Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #1 offers a standalone story guest-starring Nightwing. Since the Rebirth reboot DC hasn’t spent much time on the relationship between Dick Grayson and Jason Todd. There’s obviously some bad blood and animosity lurking under the surface, but it looks like the two former Robins have been able to put most of that behind them.

While working undercover at a Russian circus, Jason calls in Nightwing for back-up. It turns out to be one of the Red Hood’s smarter decisions as the quartet of heroes take on KGBeast who has been hired by the Russians to take revenge on the Outlaws.

Nightwing #22

Nightwing #22 #comic reviewWhile Tiger Shark works behind the scenes to further his influence in Bludhaven, Nightwing has a more immediate problem with the arrival of Blockbuster, however things aren’t exactly what they appear to be.

The introduction of a new Blockbuster, whose motives are far more complex than the last one, certainly adds a wild card to events in Dick Grayson‘s adopted hometown. There are certainly big questions here: can Nightwing trust the new Blockbuster, just what is the man’s end game, and if Blockbuster isn’t the threat which Tiger Shark set in motion for the city’s hero than what is?

Titans #1

in Comics

Titans #1Clad in a new costume, Titans #1 continues to focus on the return of Wally West. Working with his old teammates once again, Lilith attempts to see into Wally’s mind and find some trace of the person responsible for removing him from reality.

It appears DC isn’t going to introduce Dr. Manhattan any time soon. However, Titans #1 does reintroduce a classic Flash villain who seems genuinely ready to take responsibility for wiping Wally out of resistance. Is Abra Kadabra just Manhattan’s beard, or does the futuristic magician honestly believe he is responsible for shifting Wally out of existence (and all the other New 52 changes)?

Justice League: Gotham City Breakout

  • Title: LEGO DC Super Heroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout
  • wiki: link

LEGO DC Super Heroes: Justice League: Gotham City BreakoutAnother lukewarm entry to the LEGO DC Super Heroes line, Justice League: Gotham City Breakout features two separate stories. First, Nightwing (Will Friedle) and Batgirl (Sarah Hyland) convince Batman (Troy Baker) to finally take a vacation leaving Gotham City in the hands of Superman (Nolan North). The trip to visit his old teacher Madame Mantis (Amy Hill) unveils a plot by Deathstroke (John DiMaggio) and Bane (Eric Bauza) to use a normally peaceful underground tribe to take over the world. While providing its moments, the adventure begins to drag during its second-half.

The other storyline features Superman having more trouble with the super-villains of Gotham City than he expected. Tricked by the Joker (Jason Spisak), Superman accidentally causes a break-out at Arkham Asylum. Even calling on the help of Cyborg (Khary Payton) and Wonder Woman (Grey Griffin), the heroes struggle to stop the chaos eventually allowing Robin (Scott Menville) to show them what crime-fighting in Gotham is all about.
