   Batman Vol 2 #1 Cover A 1st Ptg Regular Greg Capullo Cover,11/10/2011 10:40:16 AM
To simply put, Batman #1 is my favorite of the new 52. Not only does it does it have great artwork, but the writing by Scott Snyder really make the introduction to the relaunch of Batman feel comfortable and very easy to get pulled into Gotham City once again. The first issue (without any spoilers) includes appearances by some of the most memorable in the Batman universe, such as Dick Grayson and Tim Drake. The introduction to the issue includes an extremely well written narration of Gotham City and its inhabitants. The issue then goes on to introduce some of the major characters of the Batman universe, then after a great speech given by Bruce Wayne on how he believes he can make Gotham better, you quickly jump into the first crime scene of the series. Without any spoilers, the ending of the issue is very interesting and will keep you wanting nothing more than to dive further into the mystery presented. I have no doubt that the relaunch of Batman will be nothing but successful and extremely entertaining.
   Batman Vol 2 #5 Cover A 1st Ptg Regular Greg Capullo Cover,2/20/2012 8:01:18 PM
By far, this is the best book out of the New 52 at the current moment. Not only is the story paced extremely well and the writing is top notch by Scott and art by Capullo, but the way the comic takes advantage of physically flipping the pages sideways and upside down to further improve the experience and overall story telling and make the reader feel just like Batman in the comic as they become frustrated by forgetting which way to turn the page or reading top to bottom in a metaphorical (and physical) descent into madness as Batman endures during this issie. A perfect 5 out of 5 for me. Batman stands as the best of the New 52 for me.
   Shadow Vol 5 #1 Regular Alex Ross Cover,5/8/2012 6:02:38 PM
The Shadow is an old comic character that has been revived multiple times throughout the past 5 decades. This revival of the inspiration behind Batman is a fun action comic, espically if you're a fan of the World War II era. The action only appears during the first half of the comic, but is awesome nonetheless. The rest of the comic sets up for the comic story arc and introduces you to the Shadow and his secret identity. The book may not appeal to all, but if you enjoy shady anti-heroes during World War II, this is the comic to pick up. I can't wait to see what Ennis brings to the table with the upcoming story. Not to mention, this issue serves as a great collection as it has many variants to choose from.
