Here are this week’s upcoming reviews for “The Endless Reel” for the week of July 11th. All reviews are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, so if you don’t see one of these reviews this week, it will probably show up under the 4-SENTENCE REVIEW header.
It’s Batman vs. Owlman! Bruce Wayne vs. Thomas Wayne Jr! Scott Snyder’s excellent Court of Owls mega-arc begins it’s ending as Bruce must face his long-lost brother! Snyder’s work on Batman has been a highlight of DC’s ‘New 52’ and shows no signs of slowing down.
Batman and Robin #11
Damian Wayne continues his quest to defeat all the Robins! After last month’s psychological duel against Tim Drake, Damian goes after RED HOOD! Also, Terminus sends his Batfreaks out into Gotham City!
Before Watchmen: Minutemen #2 of 6
Darwyn Cooke continues his phenomenal Minutemen series! Peer into the past of the Watchmen to see who came before. Cooke’s retro-style artwork is the biggest pull of this series, but if the writing stays consistent, it looks to be the best series in the Before Watchmen pantheon.
Demon Knights #11
Paul Cornell continues his look at Camelot through the ages! The true natures of the team’s members are revealed – and they’re MONSTERS! I’ve been reading Demon Knights since the beginning, and I think it’s high time to include it on “The Endless Reel”!
Resurrection Man #11
Fortunately, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning already have a new gig over at BOOM! Studios with their new series, The Hypernaturals. With Resurrection Man winding toward it’s final issue next month (not counting the prequel issue zero), the secrets of Mitch Shelley’s life start coming to a front! Finding the Transhuman is the only way to figure out “Who Is Mitch Shelley?”
Spider-Men #3 of 5
After a bumbling first issue followed by a totally solid second, Spider-Men is shaping up to be one of the best limited series of 2012. Mysterio’s playing a BIG, BIG part in this story, so if you’re a Spider-Man fan, this title is for you!
It’s finally time to start letting Kon-El stand on his own two feet! After a long-running crossover with Teen Titans, Scott Lobdell finally decides Superboy can actually be a good book without the help of a team of teens!
