So this will be a longer than usual post and a bit of a rant. Could anyone imaging a company screwing up a self owned property that at one time ruled the toy shelves? No its not Mattel with MOTU; it’s definitely not Playmates with TMNT so who could it be? The guilty party is

Batman #68 – Review

It seems like forever since I reviewed a new comic, much less read a new batman comic. It seems like I only show up in Gotham when something big is happening.

At Wal-Marts all over the country, DC Comics makes stories available featuring their greatest heroes. The general purpose seems to be to get comics in the hands of new readers, perhaps even those that do not have easy access to a comic book shop. The general public will read this as "kids," and in some cases, they're not far off.
