Smallville Season 11 #17

High above Metropolis, Batman and Nightwing discuss the events of Strykers, while pursuing Superman who broke Bruno Manheim out. Cut to Superman who is even HIGHER above Metropolis to interrogate (with fear) the info out of him that Batman wants. He eventually gives him the info, and relays it back to Batman using Bat’s tracer. Chloe finds out there’s a pattern from the emails he’s getting. Lois and Clark discuss how Toyman may still be connected to all the arms trafficking, and it’s revealed that he had an admirer by the name of Oswald Loomis. Later, Batman sees something on his external cameras that alert him to the Bat Signal in the sky… In Metropolis… To be continued.

For this book, I really like this new art work of Jamaal Igle. His drawn faces look superb as do his hands, though I question who’s choice it was to have Batman have grey face paint from his nose down.

Some how it stays on even though he done went through how many walls and what not. His art work is just well appreciated in these issues.
Miller seems to have encompassed the Christan Bale version of Batman, as well as all the other versions (notably the animated Batman/Justice League). The world of Smallville certainly has expanded since the year 2001, much less 2010 the story seems to be vast from characters, to places, to the ideas. With this issue I’m kind of revived by the series.

Skyfall – An Essenex Review

Hello one and all,

My boy @MR_STiXX and I got together to talk about Skyfall, the latest Bond flick. He’s the only other person who sees film as such an art form as I do, so give it a look and enjoy (THIS ONE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN WATCH).

Smallville Season 11 #16

The issue pits Superman, and Batman against each other and in the end, Superman discovers he’s Batman, and Batman confesses why he’s after Bruno (though we already knew that).

That’s really the plot for this thing. Bryan Miller wrote a decent enough issue. Oh and I was right.. It was a “red sun” emitting from his chest and fist. In terms of writing. There’s not much to go on. But its good for what it is. Which is a typical comic book first meeting between two heroes.

Hey folks… There’s another new artist… Who is much, much better than the last two guys… And it shows from the first page and with it we get a clearer version of Batman’s suit, as well better artwork in general.

There isn’t really much to comment on. Though I will say I felt that the fight was hard to follow in terms of where it was taking place at this “Stryker’s” penitentiary. But I’m just happy this artist is better. Has a bit of a better grasp of the look and feel to what Smallville was. Hopefully his stay is MUCH better than the last few. Oh and lastly. This just goes to prove that everyone should really be able to tell who exactly Batman is (identity wise). If they couldn’t already tell from the world Arkham City was in.

Enjoy your day!
