Ask Chris #160: Gettin’ Older

Q: Does it ever bug you that comics characters don't age in any significant manner? --@sackobooks

A: I'm not gonna lie to you, Sacko: The first time I looked at this question, I dismissed it almost immediately, because to me, the answer seems pretty obvious. I mean, I am a guy whose career is defined by being super into a guy who's been in his early thirties for the past 74 years, so it's clearly not that big an issue. But then I got to talking to Matt Wilson about it, and he made me realize that there's actually a lot there to talk about.

Robin And More Come To ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ Via Online Multiplayer [Video]

Batman: Arkham Origins
Batman: Arkham Origins

A complaint you sometimes hear about online multiplayer components of AAA video games is that you never get to play as the star or stars of the single-player campaign. Maybe that's why WB Games Montreal and Splash Damage designed the multiplayer aspect of Batman: Arkham Origins so that one player out of eight gets to actually wear the cape and cowl, at least for a round.

Check out the trailer for the multiplayer mode, which features "3 vs. 3 vs. 2" combat, below.

‘Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite’ Is A World’s Finest Team Up Tale [Review]

justice-legos-of-america

It's a testament to how well-made the video game Lego Batman 2: Superheroes Unite is that large chunks of the "story" scenes can be repurposed and matched with new material so seamlessly that it's difficult to tell that any part of the new direct-to-DVD movie Lego Batman: The Movie -- DC Superheroes Unite was ever intended for anything other than a slick computer-animated movie.

‘Batgirl/Robin Year One’ Collects Two Great Tales Of Batman’s Oldest Partners [Review]

batgirl-robin-1

Before you get too wrapped up in Zero Year, this Wednesday you'll have a chance to get caught up on Year One. Because that's how we do things in comics now: we go backwards. On sale this week is a brand new collection of two great Year One stories that sharpened up the continuity of their respective characters, and added new depth and clarity to backstories that were previously kinda flat and fuzzy. Batgirl/Robin: Year One gathers two separate miniseries that could each claim to be the definitive story for their Bat-family members: Robin: Year One by Chuck Dixon, Scott Beatty, and Javier Pulido; and Batgirl: Year One by Scotty Beatty, Chuck Dixon (same writers, different listing) and Marcos Martin. And let me tell ya, Batgirl and Robin are two great tastes that go great together.
