Batman & Robin Eternal #23 Review

Body: 

 

Hey... hey, Tim, now, no grouping yourself with characters that do things. You hang back with Jason.

 

The guys flex their detailed pecs and check the specs of the enemy's tech and begin to peck as they crack their necks, so what the heck, give it a sec and they'll wreck Mother's deck! Er, so basically MIdnighter and Spoiler get in on them Duke Boys'... I mean Robin Boys' plans to rescue Harper and Cass and defeat Mother. Midnighter plays keyboard jockey and triangulates the coordination of the polarity velocitator, or something, while Steph guards Scarecrow until Jason can escort him to his new laboratory. Oh, and I guess Batgirl's in this, too. And Katana. And Batwoman. And... Duke Thomas, I think. And Catwoman. They completely disregarded Luke Fox, however, and I am oh so glad. Time to punch some toddlers!

 

Batman & Robin Eternal #22 Review

Body: 

This issue needed more Goliath.

 

Damian slaps the eldes chap when he's tired of his rap, 'cuz he won't take that crap and would rather scrap with Cassie's Pap, who's a sap and gets thrown out through a gap, and that's the hap, so shut your yap, and prepare to clap as the story is recapped, Harp and Cass are still kidnapped, and Mother springs her trap! All this in the twenty-second movement of DC's weekly Batman symphony. Damian gets to be the Golden Child all the Morrison fans like him as, we see the (possible) end of an antagonist, and the gal pals on the outs share a tense moment.

 

No snarkiness here, just... that Cass reflection is AMAZING.

Otaku Evolution Season 3 - Coming This Week!

Body: 

 

A new season of my chintzy, unwatched anime review video series, Otaku Evolution, is upon us, with new episodes starting this week! If you haven't seen the show, please check it out in one or all the links below to my three(!) different hosts for the series. It's essentially just me reviewing anime, but as a pixelated representation of myself living, roughly, in the world of my old OR: Side Story and Penguin Chronicles strips. Don't worry if you don't "get" the stuff with the pixels, it's just for presentation purposes (though I do put a lot of effort in). Don't forget to feed me hits, thumbs up, likes, shares, etc.

Lupin III (2015) Episode JP 21 (Italy 22) Review

Body: 

"From Japan With Love"

*****SPOILERS*****

Synopsis: Lupin jets off to Japan when it seems like Fujiko's in danger, but as usual, it's a ruse by her to get him to steal something for her. Unexpectedly, however, it turns out the ruse is on her as well, because it was all a trap by Detective Ackechi Holmes Kousuke to capture Lupin without her knowledge! While Lupin is in captivity, Fujiko scrambles to correct her mistake and prove that underestimating her is a mistake! It's a contest of deception as the woman called Fujiko Mine shows she's every bit as formidable as the man who loves her!

Batman & Robin Eternal #21 Review

Body: 

What a tragedy... now she can't see Batman v Superman in theaters this March!

 

 

Mother, who's hoary, has one gory back story, and how she became predatory makes Batman take inventory, all in this twenty-first installment of DC's weekly Batman serial. The entire issue takes place in the past, whether it be Bruce following up on his encounter with Mother or the new villain's background being told to him by some one she "helped". And from this we see the parallel between Batman and his foe and the very different, yet similar directions they took. We also get some pretty solid art from Tony S. Daniel, making the story more palatable.

On the road of time, can fond memories keep the motor running? Lupin goes on a drive singing "Let's Go For A Walk" in this mellow but emotional new caper!

 

Batman & Robin Eternal #20 Review

Body: 

Dick snapped and finally murdered the characters that don't fucking matter.

 

Master plans, eyes on hands, and the Son of Batman, in this twentieth issue of DC's weekly Batman feature. The Battle of St. Hadrian's continues as now even kids not even enrolled converge on the school to kill our heroes, and Dick and Cass have to handle a wild Harper, enraged and afraid by a combination of fear gas and the revelation her friend killed her mom. Helena has had just about enough of David Cain, Jason gives a little motivational speech, Tim tries to get a grip, Poppy has a fire whip, and a new player enters!

 

"I don't remember all the trippy acid colors when she was doing that,though... I think that's new."
