Batman #36 Game Over
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
Man, what a great week it was, eh? Hugely enjoyable week for comics.
*Captain Marvel gets a nod for being absolutely hilarious in every way, and for Lila, and rhyming, and Marlo, and the Carol Corps reference, and the very Bowie/Rocky Horror vibe going on. Excellent issue.
*Copperhead continues to be captivating and balanced and just one hell of a beautifully drawn and colored, and ridiculously charismatic book. Love.
*Batman gets a nod for Capullo's art, alone, and for the cell number, and the reveal, and the creepy ending, even though I definitely have some issues with the weird cuts and breaks between the end of the last issue and the beginning/middle of this one. Really odd gaps in there; it felt like there were a few pages missing.
*She Hulk gave us a wonderful wrap on the trial; love this book. So sad it's ending.
* and, finally, Thor put out another great chapter. The fight scenes, the badassery, the joy, the frozen Avengers, the heavy hitters all converging, the mystery of it . . loads of good stuff in there. And the art is phenomenal. I'm so glad I decided to jump on this book.

She Hulk was excellent, Pulidos art has really grown on me since the series started. Gutted there's only 2 issues left. The Fade Out #3 continues to really draw me into that period of history. Love the bit at the back of the book detailing the real life events. FBP #15 was probably my favourite book of the week. Some great back story for Cicero. Still got the Silver Surfer to read, I'm assuming that Dan Slott and the Allreds won't let me down though.
