This week’s big surprise in DC comes from Detective Comics. The vicious AI, Ascalon, after his defeat at the hands of Jean-Paul Valley (back in a very cool Batman Azrael suit) reveals to Batman that Tim Drake is still alive! Now we all know that now the Batman has this knowledge he won’t stop until he brings him back. If you look at the way he hunted for a way to bring Damien back, imagine what he will do for someone who isn’t even actually dead. Tim Drake will be coming back soon and that is good to hear cause with the events of Dark Nights: Metal coming up, Batman is gonna need his anchor very soon. Also check out: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, The Flash, Justice League of America, Birds of Prey, Action Comics, and of course check out Tom King’s Mister Miracle!
In Marvel, something happened that I have just been waiting for 30 issues. In Amazing Spider-Man Peter Parker was fighting the new and improved Doc Ock and ended up sacrificing his entire company to keep Doc Ock from taking over. I have been waiting for this because it returns Spider-Man to who he is suppose to be: a down on his luck guy who always fights the good fight, even when his entire life is down in the dumps. I have never liked him as the business mogul and tony stark type character, so I’m happy that is done. Also check out: Secret Empire, Defenders, Generations: Phoenix/Jean Grey, Old Man Logan and Inhumans: Once and Future Kings.
