  1. This seems like one of those what I would call when it comes to movies: popcorn kind of films, or a summer blockbuster. Obviously this is a comic, so let’s call it a popcorn comic then😀
    You are so right though, sometimes that is all one needs at times. I do like complex stories, but every once in a while I just like to take a load of and watch/read something simple. This seems like it serves that purpose. Not in a real hurry to get this, but it also doesn’t sound half bad😊 Great post as always!

  2. Ahhh a ‘lighter’ read…just one that you could just skim and get a gist of the story? I wouldn’t mind that, like you said specially during times like this 🙂 Brilliant review, Lashaan!

  3. Hm, interesting and well-thought out review my good man! I somehow missed this collection and will definitely have to pick it up as this was the era in which I started reading comics and I have a particular fondness for these types of comics. True, they may be episodic but that was a lot more common place than it is now where everything is geared towards the trade (and hence multi issue arcs).

    Jim Aparo was one of the defining Batman artists for me, again art in comics today is quite different and a lot more stylised…and certainly superior in a lot of ways. But some of this older, more straight forward art has its merits and still looks a million times better than modern John Romita Jr (sorry John!)!

    1. Absolutely. I’m glad it was collected like this though. It’s a fun break from what you see nowadays and it’s the era of comics that I would have consumed without second guessing as a kid too.

      Hahahah I can’t disagree there. John Romita Jr. has definitely lost his touch (or at least can’t compete with the rest of the competition today!). I definitely enjoyed this action-cartoon style though. I hope you get the chance to try it out in the near future, Chris! Thanks for reading! 😀
