What I’m Reading – ‘Batman: Last Knight On Earth’ by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo

Bruce Wayne wakes up in Arkham Asylum. Young. Sane.

And…he was never Batman.

That’s the set-up, at least. Though it doesn’t take long for the comic to diverge from that great hook – for better or worse.

What I’m Reading – ‘Batman: Digital Justice’ by Pepe Moreno

‘Batman: Digital Justice’ is like a time capsule from the early 1990s. From it’s weird “ground-breaking” 3D art to it’s cautionary message about technology, it’s aged like milk. But surely there’s something of merit here?

MyCreativeRambling’s Best of the Decade

2010 feels like a long time ago. In that year, we were all in the cinema watching Inception or Toy Story 3. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe was still in its infancy. Most people still hadn’t heard of Breaking Bad, while Game of Thrones was still a year away.

What I’m Reading – ‘Batman: Damned’ by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo

In 2008, Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo released Joker – which went on to be a massive hit. Now, and as part of the newly created ‘DC Black Label’ (an imprint for more mature readers), they’ve released Batman: Damned. This is a pseudo-sequel to Joker and continues the tone and world-building the pair had established – through Bermejo’s luscious art and Azzarello’s (potentially Marmite) edgy writing. I adored every page.

What I’m Reading – ‘Joker’ by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo

After ‘The Dark Knight’ was released, the Joker became a pop culture icon. People worshipped him, slapping pictures of the character onto clothes and merchandise. You couldn’t escape people doing impressions and asking you “why so serious?”

Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo use the story of lowlife Jonny Frost to give us an alternative look at the Joker, and make you think twice before buying that t-shirt with his picture on.
