I Don’t Know If I’ll Be Able to Play Gotham Knights

I am very much looking forward to the upcoming video game, Gotham Knights. An Arkham-style game where you play as all the Robins? Especially the Tim Drake Robin? Sign me the heck up! And the game looks great! We just got this new Villains trailer this week.

The problem is, I don’t own a Playstation 5, and my gaming PC is pretty old at this point. So I just don’t know if I’ll be able to play and enjoy this game when it comes out. Will the world suddenly shift and PS5s will become available? I doubt it. Am I going to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade my PC just for this one game? Hells nah. So I guess all I can do is watch and enjoy these little trailers…

Gotham Knights comes out on Oct. 25.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/12/22

What a week, people! This might be one of the most joyous weeks in comics I’ve ever had. We got a new Multiple Man Marvel Unlimited comic this week, Strong Guy gets in on the action in Secret X-Men and then we’ve got the mother of all team-ups!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Amazing Spider-Man #88.BEY for bringing together some of my favorite obscure characters for a delightful comic! I’m so glad my obscure favorites aren’t being needlessly murdered for once! Let’s here it for Hornet and the Slingers!

Goosebumps

Meanwhile, I’ll have a review up next week on the first season of The Book of Boba Fett. Pretty underwhelming, if you ask me, but otherwise fine. Then the week after, I want to do a review of the first season of Peacemaker, because that show is amazing! Why couldn’t James Gunn have made a Boba Fett TV show? Oh well. In other news, I’m enjoying Pokemon Legends: Arceus just fine.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #88.BEY, Batgirls #3, Mighty Morphin #16, Robins #5 and Secret X-Men #1.

6 Reasons Why I Love Robin

I love Robin the Boy Wonder. He/She is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters, and a character I will defend to the death if need be. My personal favorite Robin is Tim Drake, but I like the mantle of Robin more than I like any specific individual who has worn the mask. Robin is simply an awesome comic book character. And because there has been a whole heck of a lot of Robin news lately, I wanted to celebrate with this week’s List of Six.

He’s just plain cool

Robin is getting a couple new comics in November. Tim Drake just came out as likely bisexual, and that made national news. Robin is going to appear in the Batman ’89 comic, finally giving those Tim Burton movies a Robin. Various Robins are the stars of the Titans TV show, which just started its third season. There’s currently a “Robin” comic starring Damian Wayne, who is maybe transitioning away from the role? Suffice to say, there is a lot of Robin stuff happening these days and it feels good to be a Robin fan. But why am I such a devoted Robin fan?

Join me after the jump to find out!

Some Cool Robin Comics Are Coming!

November is apparently going to be a big month for Robin comics! And if you know me and comics, you’ll know that I love Robin! So you best believe I’ll be checking out these two mini-series when they arrive

First up is Robins, written by Tim Seeley, with art by Baldemar Rivas. This comics won the Round Robin contest that DC held recently where they announced a dozen crazy new comic ideas and had fans vote for their favorite. Turns out fans really want more Robin!

Robins is going to be about all of the former Robins getting together to talk through their histories. And a mysterious woman claiming to be the first Robin?! L’gasp! This one sounds like a solid exploration of what it means to be a Robin. I love that kind of thing! Hopefully it doesn’t differ too much from my own thoughts on what it means to be a Robin, because I can be a fickle fan.

Next up is Robin & Batman, written by Jeff Lemire, with art by Dustin Nguyen. This one just seems to have popped up out of nowhere, with Lemire and Nguyen a solid creative team.

Robin & Batman is going to be an exploration of Dick Grayson’s early days as the Boy Wonder. There already exists a Robin: Year One comic, but I have no problem adding more continuity! Dick Grayson as Robin is a fun time period and definitely open to exploration from modern creative teams.

I especially love how young Robin gets to have proper pants and boots on that cover. The original Robin costume may be classic, but that does not make it good or worth using in a project like this.

Both of these comics sound awesome and both of them will be bought, read and reviewed by me! Doesn’t that sound exciting? I sure hope so.

Check Out These Awesome Bat-Family Costumes!

We live in a golden age of live action superhero costumes! Gone are the days of moody black leather. Now superheroes on both the big and small screens get to dress in comics-accurate attire! And it looks great!

Yesterday saw the first official images of the new Batwoman and Red Hood costumes from the second season of the Batwoman TV show and the third season of the Titans TV show respectively.

Here is Javicia Leslie in costume as Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman.

The Ryan Wilder character recently made her first appearance in the comics. Maybe she’ll become the new Batwoman in comics as well? Time will tell! I think she looks great!

Next up is actor Curran Walters as the Red Hood!

Walters played Jason Todd as Robin in the first two seasons of Titans. I haven’t seen the second season yet, so I don’t know what happened to him. But apparently it was enough for him to go full Red Hood for season 3! I need to start watching that show again. And I never did watch Batwoman to begin with.

To think I live in a day and age where there are so many superhero TV shows that I actively don’t watch some of them! I should be so lucky!
