The Haul: February 2017

After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week. Not only did that not happen then, but I will not even pretend to make that claim again today. However, what I can promise is to pop in at least once a month for this new endeavor. When “The Haul” first debuted, it was meant as a place where I could talk about whatever was on my mind that week in the world of comics. Having that freedom was nice, but this next iteration will have better specified boundaries. By dropping a lens over this column, I can provide a clearer focus on what it is readers can expect.

By James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira & Adriano Lucas

What is the phrase? No good deed goes unpunished? This idea has echoed through superhero comics when characters are forced to confront the question of whether their actions cause more harm than help. Do their righteous actions save lives or simply invite more crazies to come out from under the shadows? Would the citizens of urban centers such as Gotham City be safer without such a tantalizing target as Batman patrolling the rooftops? James Tynion IV is not the first Bat-scribe to dive into this dilemma, but he has found a way to reengage the subject in a compelling manner. Ably aided by Eddy Barrows’ fantastic art, Tynion continues to bring new life to Detective Comics.

unbeatablesquirrelgirl15Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #15
“If you’re still not reading this book, what can I possibly say to you? How about this issue teases the epic clash of titans which fans have been clamoring for? Yep, it’s Taskmaster vs Mew the Cat. And yep again, it’s told from the feline’s perspective. Ah Mew . . . “

Tyler’s Recommendation …
blackmondaymurders4Black Monday Murders #4
“The end of the first arc from Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker’s tale of finance, corruption, occult practices, and dark magic. I’m a huge Hickman fan, and this series has been a wicked delight. Coker’s gritty and gorgeous art combines so well with Hickman’s elaborate narrative web of conspiracy, murder, greed, and an evil battle for control of the world.”

Cosmo’s Recommendation …
TalesOfBatmanTales of the Batman Alan Brennert HC
“There is a long list of talented authors who have written for The Dark Knight, and Alan Brennert deserves to ranked as highly as any of them. This long overdue hardcover collects all of his Batman stories in one place, including “To Kill a Legend” & “The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne” which are two of the best Batman tales ever. You also get some additional The Brave and the Bold team-ups and fan favorite Elseworlds The Holy Terror. Artistic collaborators include Jim Aparo, Norm Breyfogle and Joe Staton. What else do you need?”
