Recommended Reading: Deadpool & Cable - Ultimate Collection

Deadpool & Cable: Ultimate Collection by Fabian Nicieza

"Can two grown men armed to the teeth with deadly genetic weaponry live together without driving each other crazy?!" Okay, I didn't write that, I read it on the back of this book. But doesn't that sound pretty cool though?

Batman and Son: The Review

Batman and Son - Grant Morrison

I have mixed feelings about Grant Morrison's Batman. I want to like his work, I really do. There are parts of this book that I absolutely loved, and parts of it that I absolutely hated. Let's start with the things that I didn't like. If you decide those things don't bother you all that much, then its a safe bet you will like this book. Firstly, the plot is largely left unresolved. Unlike many other Batman graphic novels, this is part of a much larger story. Most of the time when you pick up a collection of this kind, you get a nice, condensed, one shot story. Morrison does not write that way, at least not when it comes to Batman. This is part of a much larger tale that involves past events in Bruce Wayne's life, which are revealed to the reader over several other books. When read in succession, the plot is fairly engaging, and is certainly worth flipping through.
