Price: 2.99

Safety Content Label: T+ TEENS AND UP – Appropriate for most readers 13 and up, parents are advised that they might want to read before or with younger children.

Publisher’s Blurb:
Will a battle of sibling rivalry lead to a death in the family?

Reviewer’s Comments:
The final showdown between brother and sister finally arrives in this new issue and secrets are revealed and a father and daughter’s trust is betrayed in this new issue.

Before Barbara goes to fight her brother for the final time, she and her roommate Alysia sit down and have a conversation about the past few months and each woman reveals a secret to the other.

Barbara tells Alysia about the Joker shooting her, the wheelchair, and her recovery to walk again. Then Alysia reveals her secret which has made big waves through out comic book fandom this week.

With her roommate warned about James, Barbara moves on to save her family…from her own brother. Little does she know that James has a surprise of his own in store for Barbara. Without giving it away, the final showdown between siblings happens on a rainy night on a Gotham bridge. One sibling won and the other lost…or did they?

I’m excited to see Gail Simone back writing Gotham’s heoric redhead who wears a cape and cowl. I loved the scripting of this issue, the plot is excellent and the conclusion to this story arc ends with a bang.

The artwork continues to be subperb with the stunning action scenes and the character interactions.

Batgirl has been a favorite of mine since the new 52 began and this issue is why series continues to be. I’m looking forward to what’s in store for Batgirl in the future.

Talon #4 Review

Talon #4

Rating: 4/5
Publisher Name: DC Comics
Writer: Scott Snyder & James T Tynion IV
Pencils: Guillem March
Number of Pages: 32
Price: 2.99
Color: Color
Safety Content Label: T+ TEENS AND UP – Appropriate for most readers 13 and up, parents are advised that they might want to read before or with younger children.

Publisher’s Blurb:
Talon’s secret history in Manhattan is explored while Calvin Rose searches for an important figure from his past.
Plus, what is the mysterious organization that has ties to Talon?

Reviewer’s Comments:
The Talon series keeps getting better with each issue and this issue things get even more interesting.

Talon strikes at the Owl’s money and meets another ‘talon’ who has gone through the process that for the most part makes the Talons hard to kill. Later on in the story, Calvin is reunited with Sarah and her daughter and learns that Sarah is also battling the Court of Owls with her own secret organization.

With their cages rattled, the court decides to awaken a Talon who even puts the fear into the court and was known as “The Butcher” to go after Calvin.
Needless to say The Butcher lives up to his name as he is immensely formidable. It takes almost everything that Calvin and his allies got to take down this monstrosity of a Talon. Safe and sound, Calvin decides to take Sarah and her daughter back to Gotham City. Has Calvin seen the last of the The Butcher?

As I’ve said before this series is fantastic. I’m enjoying the writing and the artwork. I think the plot is very intriguing. I look forward to what’s in store for the rogue Talon from the creative team. And I think you should too.

In this Stephen-less (and partially Steve-less) episode, we start off with a discussion about what makes not-so-good actors ok, and just terrible actors bad. After that we roll into the news to discussion Warner Brother winning big in the Superman legal case and how some fans have a created a petition to cancel Avengers Arena. This segues perfectly into our Issue to Issue where we review Avengers Arena #1, Green Lantern #15 and Superior Spider-Man #1. In a special edition of the CCL Pick of the Week, Steve reviews Star Wars #1 by Dark Horse. Finally, JS concludes the show with another fashion-driven episode of Cocky Cosplay.
