REVIEW: Batman The Spirit

Leave a comment

batman-the-spirit-1_cover-artFrom 2007 DC comics published what is now one of my favorite crossovers ever. Two great comic icons in one great book. One thing I really like about this is it shows the similarities between Batman and the Spirit. There’s Gotham City and Central City, Commissioner Gordon and commissioner Dolan and so on. The story starts out with Gordon in Central city, it seems Jim and Dolan are old friends and they’re telling the tale of how the Spirit met Batman. Dolan and Gordon are headed out to a the Policeman’s Benevolent Association’s Annual Law-Enforcement Convention, on their way Dolan is intercepted by Poison Ivy and put under her spell, while Gordon is seduced by P’Gell. At the same time the criminals from both cities are having their own get together, soon Batman and the Spirit’s villains start working together. That’s alright though because it doesn’t take long for Batman and the Spirit to team up, though I do like that the Spirit doesn’t believe that Batman is real. They work well as a team, as you may have guessed and save the day. This book is really incredible, it’s must read stuff for Batman and Spirit fans. I guess I wasn’t the only one that liked it too because it pulled in the 2007 Eisner Award for Best Single Issue, Dave Stewart won the Eisner for Best Coloring and Darwyn Cooke won the 2007 Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Artist. So yeah, it’s pretty good I guess.

REVIEW: Obsessor: In Fear of the End

Leave a comment

Obsessor is here again with a couple new tracks, they’re not short, but they’re fast. I really wish this band would put out more than two tracks at a time because they all rule. How about we get an album, or at least an EP? Anyway the first track ‘In Fear of the End’ is pretty fucking awesome, it’s fast and hard and everything you would want out of a metal punk crossover. The second track ‘Aftershock’ starts out a little slower but doesn’t waste much time working things up into a frenzy perfect for a circle pit. Metal heads and punks alike should be into this one, Obsessor is the band for people who miss seeing Municipal Waste with twenty other people in a college cafeteria.

1. In Fear of the End
2. Aftershock
