Summary:

This is certainly a title that I want to be picking up every week, especially if the quality of the story and art remain this high throughout.

DC’s newest Batman title “Batman and Robin Eternal” is here, and our Lead Batman Writer Chris Barnes is here with everything you need to know.

Hold on to your masks Dick Grayson fans, DC Comics has launched their new weekly title, Batman and Robin Eternal; and after a total of one issue, I’m ready to declare it to be amazing!

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

Tony Daniel is the penciller for this first issue and the initial cover has been making the rounds on the internet for the last few weeks. It features a split down the middle image with the original Batman and Robin on one side and the current incarnations of the many Robins on the other.

It’s no surprise, to me at least, that the art in this book is amazing!  Tony has done fantastic work in the past on Detective Comics, Action Comics and Superman/Wonder Woman. Tony Daniel has a unique style that really captures emotion and action well.  In this first issue we get to see his renditions of all the Robins of the New 52 universe (even though DC has dropped the New 52 branding).  Red Hood, Red Robin, Bluebird and Grayson feature prominently in the story along with the Jim Gordon version of robo-Batman.

The story has been mapped out by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with James then finishing up the script.  These two writers have worked together for a while now; working out the backup stories that have appeared in the main Batman book for the last four years (Scott and James co-wrote the back ups for the Court of Owls and the Death of the Family stories before James did the job solo on the backups for the Endgame story line).

The quick sysnopsis for Batman and Robin Eternal #1 is that is it a story that spans many years right from Dick’s first days as Robin, to the current time line we are reading now with Dick as Agent 37 and Jim Gordon wearing the Batsuit.  The real building blocks of the story are told on the first and last page of the book, through flash backs and a confession from Batman, but all the action is set during our current time where Dick works together with the Red Hood and Red Robin to take down a motorcycle riding cyborg dude, and then later with Agent 37 working to complete one of his Spyral missions where he’s double crossed by his partner on the job and recieves a serious whooping by and unknown female fighter that I would describe as ninja-like.

I won’t spoil the main pages for you, but suffice to say that the last page of the book has my mouth watering for next week’s instalment this is certainly a title that I want to be picking up every week especially if the quality of the story and art remain this high throughout.  I’m aware that there is likely to me a rotating set of artists just to be able to meet deadlines, unless Tony has been working on this book for month s and months ahead of time, but DC has enough talented people to make these weekly endevours work as Batman Eternal has already proven.

  22. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  24. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  25. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  35. bandar togel says:

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
