justice-league-action-itll-take-a-miracle

When Barda (Laura Post) is kidnapped by Darkseid (Jonathan Adams), Batman (Kevin Conroy) goes in search of the Mister Miracle (Roger Craig Smith) who has the only item the ruler of Apokolips is prepared to trade for – the final sequence of his Anti-Life Equation. Initially mistaking Batman for a super-hero magician, the universe’s greatest escape artist refuses to listen, but when Granny Goodness (Cloris Leachman) and her Female Furies arrive Scott is forced to explain to the world’s greatest detective just what Darkseid wants from him. Of course this means a trip to Apokolips and some trickery and sleight of hand before all is said and done and Darkseid is left without either his hostage or his equation.

batman-2016-30-kite-man2

Continuing the War of Riddles and Jokes, the latest issue of Batman picks up the thread from Batman #27 and brings back Kite Man as our narrator. Obviously having chosen the wrong side, especially now that Batman has chosen to team-up with the Riddler to take down the Joker‘s army, Kite Man languishes as the Dark Knight and the Riddler’s men slowly whittle down the remaining Joker supporters until only he is left.

harley-quin-and-batman-2-condiment-king

The misadventures of Harley Quinn continue in this second issue. After being saved from the Dynamic Duo by Poison Ivy, Harley helps her gal pal with her latest plant-inspired scheme. To do so however, she’ll need Harley’s help in financing the plan. And Harley knows just where to get the money (which will bring in another major character from Batman: The Animated Series – albeit in her far-less interesting redesigned look).

Batman & Harley Quinn

batman-and-harley-blu-rayBatman & Harley Quinn is Batman: The Animated Series Lite. Co-written by Jim Krieg and Bruce Timm, featuring Kevin Conroy as Batman, and set in the later style of BtAS, the straight-to-video feature has some of the feel of lesser episodes of the animated series. Sadly, it also has some stunningly bad dialogue, odd tangents (super-hero-themed restaurants and bars for henchmen) which are only loosely connected to the plot, juvenile fart jokes for the kiddies, and an over-sexualized nature that’s certainly not directed at the same audience. In other words, it’s something of a mess – although starting out be recasting one of the most iconic roles from the TV-series was a good hint that something would be amiss.

In our tale, Batman (Conroy) and Nightwing (Loren Lester) enlist the help of a reformed Harley Quinn (Melissa Rauch) to stop her gal-pal Poison Ivy (Paget Brewster) and her new partner the Floronic Man (Kevin Michael Richardson) from unleashing a virus to turn all animal life on the planet into plants.

detective-comics-963-anarchy

Before the Dark Knight can turn his attention to searching for his missing partner he needs to track down Tim Drake‘s significant other who has traded in her Bat-Family membership for an alliance with Anarky. First created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle back in 1989, Anarky is an unusual villain with a focus on justice through chaos. The current Rebirth version seems a bit more stable than some incarnations of the character over the years, although we’ve seen only the briefest glimpse.

batman-2016-29-dinner

Batman #29 is a bizarre issue. I never thought I would see Batman offer criminals a huge payday to continue their mayhem in Gotham City. The entire comic takes place at the Wayne Manor dinner table where Bruce Wayne has gathered both the Riddler and the Joker (and some of their top lieutenants). With the War of Jokes and Riddles raging, and Batman impotent to stop it, Batman decides to… throw a dinner party?

detective-comics-962-showoff

Although Batman: Knightfall and its events apparently don’t exist in the new Rebirth DCU, Detective Comics #962 offers some fan service to the storyline that saw Azrael temporarily step-in as Batman. With the former soldier of St. Dumas out of control, the Bat Family put Azrael in a new suit of armor giving him added support against the voices of Ascalon and the programming which is trying to reassert itself on him. That suit jumps happens to have a familiar design.
