I was never a big fan of Batman other than the animated series and the Justice League cartoons. Sure, I enjoyed the classic runs like Hush, Long Halloween, Killing Joke, etc. but I never really cared about the character enough to go out and purchase a comic book. My buddy (and fellow Kronosspeakeasy writer and host of the Wednesday podcast) Paul kept telling me to pick up "Court of Owls" saying that I'd love it. So I pick it up on Comixology really cheap and couldn't put it down. I found myself actually giving a poop about Batman as well as Bruce Wayne. Scott Snyder has done an amazing job and has made me a fan of Batman.Read More

However, as far back the 1960's fans have advocated for the Dark Knight's co-creator: Bill Finger to receive the recognition that he justly deserves.

It is not exactly a secret that we hated Man of Steel mainly because of... well, he didn't save anybody. The city of Metropolis, the one that he's sworn to protect isn't even standing by the end of the film; its a pile of rubble and dust. With all of the destruction and lives lost Superman just doesn't feel as super as he should and maybe it was for a reason.Read More
Gotham is in pretty rough shape. Decimated by the attack on the city lead by the Joker in Batman: Endgame, citizens as well as law enforcement are still reeling; trying to pull themselves back together. The city needs hope. A symbol. A knight. A Batman.Read More

300 and Watchmen Director Zack Snyder has given us another taste of what is to come in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. We've seen Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and even Aquaman but today we finally see the villain, or a villain from the film.Read More
I hate to say it but I didn't think a live action Flash show would be a good idea. I'm sorry. Don't get me wrong, I loved the live action 80's version of the character but...that was the 80's.Read More
Scott Synder and Greg Capullo's Batman has been a powerhouse of story telling for the New 52 line of DC Comics and is easily one of the highest selling comics since it debuted in 2011. For this reason, these two creators have earned DC trust when it comes to pushing our beloved characters to the physical, spiritual and mental edge. Now they seem to be creating a new version of the Dark Knight seen in the two pictures below.Read More
