Quick Reviews of Comics released this week (29/04/2009)

Battle for the Cowl: The Underground #1

At one point Catwoman asks herself why she is doing this. I had asked myself that very question several times through this turgid filler / spin-off / holding pattern until Bruce Wayne comes back. Is there really any point to this? Do they expect us to buy the notion of the Riddler and Harley Quinn bumping into each other in the street like 'normal' people? The flat sharing stuff? The boring Terminator style Batman.....Please......
Pointless. 3 out of 10.

Dark Avengers #4

Fist time I have read this, but is suitably daft and funny to make it fairly enjoyable. I honestly did not have a clue what was really going on, other than the Dark Avengers and Dr Doom were battling Morgana Le Fay through time. The ending was pretty impressive, but best of all was this glimpse into Englands past;

Now that got my attention. T-Rex's in the UK? 6 out of 10.
