Lestat’s Comic Book Review Round-Up—March Week 4, 2019
How did March already end? It’s been a great month of comics, but I close this week’s Comic Book Review Round-Up, with a curtailed list of titles, since one of my regulars has been postponed. However, there’s still plenty to get excited about. I dive into Detective Comics #1000, Heroes in Crisis #7, plus Age of X-Man: X-Tremists #2. For the number ones section, we have Marvel Rising, Dial H for Hero, and Valiant Comics’ highly anticipated Fallen World.
Detective Comics #1000: Ranking the Stories in the Landmark Issue
This March, Batman turned 80 and Detective Comics released its landmark 1000th issue. Detective Comics has now become the longest-running comic series ever, and it seems fitting that this series was the birthplace of the world’s most iconic hero. To celebrate the dual historic moments, DC Comics gathered renowned artists and writers to pay homage to Batman’s legacy as well as visit his past, present and future in a collection of short stories for Detective Comics #1000. Along the way, readers me...

A new Comic Book Review Round-Up is here. This time we’ve got Nightwing #58, Batman #67, The Wild Storm #21 and The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #2. For this week’s Round-Up, I’ve eschewed my usual number ones section for an X-Men focus, featuring Uncanny X-Men #14, Age of X-Man: The Amazing Nightcrawler #2, Age of X-Man: Nextgen #2.

'Infinity Gauntlet'—'Infinity War'

Lestat’s Comic Book Review Round-Up – February Week 2, 2019
There are so many titles out every week, it’s almost a shame that I don’t have time to read them all.

From DC, I review the new Batman/Flash crossover, Titans #34, The Batman Who Laughs #34 and Wonder Twins #1. From Marvel, there’s more Age of X-Man action and a new Avengers title.
