So, in much lighter news these days…….. I want to give you guys my opinions of the newest and possibly best LEGO set in quite some time; The Arkham Asylum breakout set!
June has no public holidays for Japan if I recall correctly, therefore I do believe it is safe to assume that this is the first issue in this series that is not tied down to a holiday. This month’s final issue seems to pay homage to a variety of hollywood blockbusters. All the fun, witty dialogue, and nice action sequences from your run of the mill hollywood action flick are here in pure fun Bat fashion.
Okay, it’s been a while now since release and I’m still loving this game. So it did something right, right?. I’ll be honest I didn’t care much for the story but the fact that I can play a game where Batman and Superman can dish it out is somewhat of an amazing concept to me! This game could have ended hours of childhood debates on wether the man of steel could take down _____ character from the DC Universe or Vice Versa.
Ok so you guys remember Mortal Kombat vs DC? No? Yeah I try to forget that ever happened too but you know what I remember vividly? How amazing it was to have the feeling that an arcade style fighter featuring DC heroes was almost here. Flash forward to today and any DC fan would appreciate the efforts made by Ed Boon and company to give us what I say is arguably the best superhero fighting game ever.
Here is the bargaining stage!…… and it’s a little underwhelming if I’m honest. The art is a awesome in this issue but even so I do miss Patrick Gleason here, I am a strong believer in the philosophy that comics are not complete without great artwork and when Pat is missing from an issue there is always a part of me that seems a bit distracted by the change during my read.
Fathers Day may be a week away but that does not stop this holiday themed issue of Li’l Gotham from delivering some always welcome fun. So, anyone ever wonder how a family dinner with the Al Ghuls could go? or perhaps you’ve had the thought of Batman and the Robins cooking in the kitchen? well then, this is an issue not to be missed. Also, stick around in the overview for a brief personal story that made my week last Wednesday.
