I Am Batman #12 Review

Answer The Question

Written By: John Ridley
Art By: Christian Duce, Rex Lokus, Troy Peteri
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 9, 2022

In our previous issue of I Am Batman we got ourselves a surprise in the form of Renee Montoya, but not only Renee but her alter ego, The Question. That's right, it's time for Jace Fox to have himself an old-fashioned team-up and who better than The Question to get that started with her pursuit of finding out who really shot Anarky during Fear State. While I do love me a team-up, I will say that bringing back Gotham characters after leaving Gotham so that this book could have its identity this soon feels like a misstep to me but maybe it's simply here to set up Renee's book coming down the line. Let's jump into this issue and see if Batman and The Question can get to the bottom of this mystery.

Believe-you-me, Henry Bendix wasn't happy to discover this bit of information and may just take it out on Jay's prisoner mother. Let's jump into this issue and see what Superman is going to do to end this war before it escalates. Let's check it out.

Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #3 Review

The Looming Darkness

Written By: Joshua Williamson
Art By: Daniel Sampere, Daniel Henriques, Danny Miki, Alejandro Sanchez, Tom Napolitano
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: August 2, 2022

Our Dark Crisis has gotten bigger and that's just not because of the name extension. In our previous issue, we saw Titans Tower under siege by Deathstroke and his Secret Society and even though we have two generations of Titans and an entire Academy, they were no match to the Darkness that is infused in Slade Wilson. Thankfully, or sadly, depending where you land on it, no one died in this incursion, and Superman, Jon Kent was able to show up in time to help save the day. Not only that though, but deep in space, we see the Green Lanterns are getting their act together by finding the missing Corps members, and thankfully the lot went and found the greatest among them, Kyle Rayner. So the Justice League is dead, and the Titans have been dismantled, but maybe there's still hope with Jon Kent's new Justice League and a Green Lantern Corps that's getting into the game. Let's jump into this issue and find out.
