Batman / Spawn #1 Review

Written by: Todd McFarlane Art by: Greg Capullo Inking by: Todd McFarlane Coloring by: Dave McCaig Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Editing by: Ben Abernathy, Marie Javins Batman / Spawn is a rare book where I think it would have been better with no narration.

Batman Incorporated #1 Review

Written by: Ed Brisson Art by: John Timms Coloring by: Rex Lokus Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Editing by: Ben Abernathy Batman Incorporated has a history of putting the spotlight on characters who wouldn’t normally get the time of day.
