Ok, let me just start by saying that I absolutely love this cover, any homage to the classic Batman #9 cover is a very welcome piece for me. SDCC is coming to a close today, and this book marks a great way to send off the con visitors and remind us In a simple child like manner; why it is we love the characters we do. In a way this is an homage to fandom and also to the various interpretations of heroes out there. In the end we have a great little story here that continues to be a breath of fresh air from the swarm of serious monthlies we are accustomed to.
Ok, so here we go into the belly of the beast so to speak. Grant Morrison’s run is at an end and I have not been more excited for any other run’s end. I must say however that this issue brought many things to a speeding close and others who have not yet been shown an end for seem to have little room in the next issue for a proper send off. With Chris Burnham’s issue #11 back in May we got a stand alone story in an awkward place and time, as a result a story which seemed to be dragging a bit now seems to be coming to a speeding halt.
The fourth of July themed issue of Li’l Gotham is here. This makes 14 issues into this series and I personally could not be more satisfied with the bunch we have out now. I’ve sung my praise for this book quite a bit in the past but it is all well deserved. The 4th may have come and gone but this does not dimmer the brightness of the firework’s this issue has to offer.
