CBF Quick Picks #78 : Batman Knight of Vengeance #2

There was a Flashpoint buzz this week with the major DC event taking the spotlight. And while Flashpoint #3 certainly gave a strong showing with its big reveal of Project Superman, it was Batman Knight of Vengeance #2 that produced the shocks. The gritty vibe of Flashpoint’s portrayal of Gotham and the big reveal of the Joker made this the standout. It whets our appetites for what Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso has in store for their climax next month.

Jonah Hex should never have survived in today’s current comic climate. And yet here we are almost 6 years later and issue 69 is probably the strongest issue to date. This issue gives us two great things – Jeff Lemire’s fantastic art and Hex’s showdown with his father. We don’t know what’s to come when All-Star Western comes out in September, but the adventures here have been some of the best in the DC landscape.

Music from Age of Daze – Afflicted
