Comic Talk: Batman Who Laughs

Let’s talk comics, shall we?

One of the quickly rising characters DC has introduced us to recently is The Batman Who Laughs. He became popular with Dark Knights Metal, the badass universe Scott Snyder envisioned and brought to life with Greg Capullo and so many others in 2017/2018.

Heroes in Crisis: Tom is Still the King

DC has been getting a lot of attention for controversial things the last few months: the BatCat Wedding, the infamous Damned insanity – both things I was completely fine with. I loved both issues.

Free Comic Book Day 2018

Another year, another Free Comic Book Day. And it was busy busy busy. This year we took my nieces on a big adventure to three shops – Villainous Grounds, All the Rage, and my local shop – Not Just Comix.

I will state before going into this, that it is important to remember that even though it is Free Comic Book Day, these comics are not free to shops, and it’s important you buy something as well as pick up your free comics. I didn’t have the most money on this trip due to Fan Expo crunch time, but I still made sure to buy something at all three shops – as did my mother, my brother, and the girls. Please support local shops and keep them in business.

First up: Villainous Grounds
