‘Batman Incorporated’ #4: Ring Around the World [Annotations]

batman-inc-4

Our Batman Incorporated annotations are back, this time taking a look at the incredibly dense and referential fourth issue.

‘Live From the DMZ’ Documents the Life of Brian Wood’s Vertigo Opus

untitled-1-1302156146

Fantastic Four #570: Solving Everything [Annotations]

ff5700025

Jonathan Hickman came on Fantastic Four in late 2009 and, quite frankly, blew the socks off of the book. Since then, Hickman and later collaborators like Dale Eaglesham, Neil Edwards and Steve Epting have been weaving an intricate, thematically layered story of fathers and sons, the costs of inaction, scientific responsibility and punching things in the face...
