DC Comics proves once again that if you can’t continue producing a television series, the next best thing to do is keep it alive via the printed (or digital) page. Batman Beyond 2.0 Volume Two: Justice Lords Beyond brings together issues 9 through 12 of the popular 1990's series. The graphic novel collection gives the world of Terry McGinnis an even more epic feeling than ever before through merging alternate timelines together to cataclysmic results.
Christian comic book publisher Kingstone Media has stepped out of its comfort zone recently with their release of the graphic novel version of faith-based horror film The Remaining. Although the company has printed original stories before outside of its historical and Biblical accounts, the move pushes the proverbial envelope even further. Casey La Scala's vision of the Rapture differs from what we've ever seen before through the entertaining, yet relatively sanitized, Left Behind and Revelation Road movies.
DC Comics’ massive Universe-wide event Forever Evil was way too large to amass in one volume. The story continues in the graphic novel Justice League Volume 5: Forever Heroes. It collects issues 24 through 29 of the dramatic action-packed monthly series.
Aquaman Volume 4: Death of a King takes the monthly comic book series in a whole different direction. The book collects issues 17 through 19 and 21 through 25 of what I consider to be one of the best titles to come out of the New 52 relaunch. A character that was once laughed at by many readers is now thought of as an essential member of the greatest super hero team on the Earth - the Justice League.
When I first saw the cover of Batman/Superman Issue #1, I was instantly excited to read it and take in as much of Jae Lee's fabulous art as I could. Unlike the art, the direction the story took disappointed me. Batman/Superman Volume 1: Cross World leaves me with mixed feelings.
As a fan of Batman, I'll pick up anything that has to do with the Dark Knight's extended family. Therefore, I've been keeping up with the adventures of Huntress and Power Girl as they make their way through the crime-ridden streets of our universe and try to find a way back to Earth 2. I was excited to dive into World's Finest Volume 2: Hunt and Be Hunted, but walked away a bit disappointed.
