Comics this week

Batman Incorporated #8- Writer Grant Morrison is someone who likes to experiment with his work. When the experiment fails, his work becomes a mess. When it works, it’s a work of art. #8 of Batman Incorporated is a work of art! This issue has Batman and Oracle battling a digital enemy within a computer system. It might not sound like much but artist Scott Clark filled the issue with computer rendered pages that fit perfectly with the story. If you ever wondered how Batman would look like in the world of Tron, then this is the issue you have to pick up. Even if you never wondered about it before, pick this issue up. You will either love it or hate it but this is the issue you have to read this week!

Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search for Swamp Thing #3- I had been complaining for the past 2 issues that this is a series I can’t understand. For a series that says “The Search for Swamp Thing”, this series had been more about John Constantine taking a tour of the DCU and “The Search for Alec Holland”. With this final issue, I finally understand what this series is for. It’s a series to introduce “Justice League Dark”, the new series that would show a magic-based group that’s part of the Justice League! Why didn’t DC just say so on the title?

FF #8- After 2 issues of Black Bolt, writer Jonathan Hickman finally got back to the FF. It’s about time as this series is back on track. There were a few character moments worth remembering, the best being the scene between Nathaniel and Sue that showcased the fact that Sue don't trust her father-in-law all that much. Hopefully after a break of 2 months, FF will continue this arc without anymore side-trips.
