Lasso of Truth – Weekly Comics Round-up: 7th October 2009
Lasso of Truth is your weekly guide to what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe. Each week, the Red Baron goes through his comics haul to tell you what’s worth buying and what’s best left alone.
Here’s the key:
Must have – there’s no question, you should buy this great book.
Buy it – a high-quality read that won’t disappoint.
Check it out – pick it up if you have some extra cash. May be an acquired taste.
Avoid – a disappointing read. Save your money and steer clear.
Batman & Robin #5
Written by Grant Morrison ǀ Art by Philip Tan
Jason Todd is back – or is he? The Red Hood administers a lethal dose of retribution to Gotham’s underbelly, but they aren’t about to take it lying down; not when the Flamingo flies into town. The new Dynamic Duo have their work cut out for them. Philip Tan’s no Frank Quitely, but he’s bringing his A-game to this story arc.
Verdict: Buy it.
Batman Unseen #1
Written by Doug Moench ǀ Art by Kelley Jones
I picked this up to read a Bruce Wayne Batman story from the creative minds that brought us Red Rain. What I got instead was a terrible Seventies throwback. If you ever wondered what The Invisible Man would be like if Batman was in it, wonder no longer. Seriously, it’s not worth it.
Superman: World of New Krypton #8
Written by James Robinson & Greg Rucka ǀ Art by Pete Woods & Ron Randall
Superman proves his mettle as an inspiration for all peoples. Kal-El diffuses a Thanagarian attack through rather unorthodox means.
Verdict: Check it out.
