The Shadow / Batman TPB

The Shadow / Batman crossover is a unique beast. I read it, I enjoyed it, but the entire time I was trying to figure out if I missed something. It consistently references a shared backstory between the two heroes. That backstory is amazing, and completely plausible, but it never gets more than referenced. So I went back into these two heroes past. Back. Back. Back to the 1970s, when they first met. Too far. How about six months before this series first went to print, and the Batman / Shadow miniseries I previously reviewed for your reading pleasure. (You should go read it right now.)

The two six-issue series ran back to back with the first six being published by DC, and the second six by Dynamite. (That’s one way to solve the “who gets top billing” discussion)...

Batman / Shadow #1-6

So, the collected TPB of The Shadow/Batman, from Dynamite came out recently. As I was reading it (more on that tomorrow) I found I wasn’t sure if some of the references being made had been previously established, and as it turns out the answer is sort of.

Before Dynamite’s The Shadow / Batman miniseries, came DC’s Batman / The Shadow. So to better understand what I was reading I went back to dig out that series as well. Sadly I couldn’t get my hands on the collected TPB (entitled Batman/Shadow: The Murder Geniuses) but I was able to track down the individual issues. Full disclosure, I wasn’t able to get #4. But by most accounts, I didn’t miss much for plot in that issue, just a few great lines and a big battle...

Ash Williams is late to the party. And by party, we mean traveling back in time to fight the Army of Darkness. Things look pretty bleak for the Chosen One until he finds out he has some new allies…the rock’n’roll warriors known as KISS!

Kiss and Evil Dead (or I guess technically Army of Darkness) have different pedigrees when it comes to their stories and adaptations and for me that colors my expectations and enjoyment of this comic.

The biggest issue is right now Ash Vs Evil Dead is on it’s 3rd Season on Stars and it’s so much fun in it’s crude and gory way.

That means the bar is raised high for the comic to ca...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5 is the last issue of this beautifully snarky mini-series from Dynamite. There’s a little bit of everything here. Ray guns, retaliation, retribution, resurrection, re-killing, redemption, and a bunch of weird creatures.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to give you. If you weren’t already convinced by my last four issues worth of reviews, giving you more details won’t change your mind now. In fact, you don’t even get another random clickbait link, so there. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods have kept me entertained for the last five months, I have no doubt they will do the same for you.

Last month I threatened to give this issue only a single star just for ending, but honestly I can’t give it less than the 4 out of 5 stars that it has been sitting at ...
