Alfred Pennyworth served the Wayne family for decades—even through the tragic loss of Bruce Wayne’s parents. His death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads. If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal with that all falling apart? And if the Caped Crusader is to be truly alone, he might either hang that cape up once and for all…or double down and carry on with this vengeful quest forever.

Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1, with art by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, Chris Burnham, Marcio Takara, Diogenes Neves, Sumit Kumar and David LaFuente, celebrates the life of one of the most important people in the history of Gotham City, while also addressing questions about what’s next for Batman without Alfred Pennyworth.

Review: Freedom Fighters #2

Freedom Fighters #2

The Freedom Fighters go public in present-day Nazi America! It’s been 50 years of fascist rule in the U.S. under Hitler and his heirs, and frankly, everyone’s had enough. A new Freedom Fighters team makes a very public debut in hopes of rallying the people and re-igniting the long-dormant American spirit. Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Doll Girl and Human Bomb strike a blow against the Gestapo’s Iron Police Force, but will it be enough to summon the long-lost Uncle Sam from retirement?

In reality, there’s an ominous cloud of the creeping of fascism into our lives and the rise of a far right movement across the world. For many, there’s a want to just punch these Nazis and get some of the frustration of our reality out. Freedom Fighters #2 helps in that fantasy experience as the team takes on the Nazi robot in an issue that’s all about the action and it is epic.

Writer Robert Venditi knows what the audience wants in this issue which is one giant extended fight scene picking up from the exciting ending of the first. The issue serves a few purposes, one of which is introducing us to these characters. We get to learn about their personalities and their powers through the fight. The second is, to give us hope. We, like the people witnessing the battle, get a little hope out of it all. There’s something satisfying watching Nazis get beat and done so in a rather patriotic rah-rah sort of way.

That’s delivered through the art of Eddy Barrows with ink by Eber Ferreira, color by Adriano Lucas, and lettering by Deron Bennett. The art is fantastic with amazing panels and page layouts that emphasizes the action. The explosions are big, the framing and focus of the action is dynamic. This is a big summer popcorn blockbuster on every page and it’s beyond entertaining.

There’s not a lot of rocket science to the comic. It’s action pack and the Nazis get their butts kicked. In this day, that’s about as satisfying as you need. The team mixes the high octane action with just enough rah-rah to not go too over the top into parody instead keeping the tone grounded in a retro sort of way. Fun action delivered through awesome art creates a comic that’s a hell of a lot of fun.

Review: Freedom Fighters #1

Freedom Fighters #1

Line up for this all-new maxiseries set on Earth X, where the Nazis won World War II! Twenty years after invading and occupying America, Germany wiped out all metahuman resistance, including the original Freedom Fighters. 

Fast-forward to the present day, and a new team of Freedom Fighters emerges to challenge the Nazi occupation once again. But if they’re to have any chance of victory, they’re going to need Uncle Sam-who disappeared after his original team was killed.

Beyond one small “factual” issue of including “under God” in the pledge, Freedom Fighters #1 is a read that had me sucked in from the start. Writer Robert Venditti delivers a story of resistance in a time when real world resistance is a daily occurrence.

World War II is over and the Nazis have won leaving few heroes to continue the fight and eventually a new generation must step forward. Venditti has nailed the zeitgeist that’s currently occurring in the world with a story that’s engrossing and acknowledges the generational shift we’re seeing today. The greatest generation’s torch has been passed to a new generation who has taken up the fight against fascism in both the comic and reality. The fact Venditti recognizes this shows this will be a series that will reflect heavily upon the real world while still delivering an escapist story full of action.

The art by Eddy Barrows, ink by Eber Ferreira, color by Adriano Lucas, and lettering by Deron Bennett is top notch. There’s some fantastic scenes and use of panels and pages with scenes delivering the emotion on the page whether it’s despair, hope, and at times horror. The designs are fantastic creating something familiar but slightly different with an aesthetic that fits this alternate world without being over the top. Small details like the use of Nazi bolts in Plasstic Man adds small touches that emphasize this reality.

The issue is a fantastic start with highs and lows. There’s lots of action, hope, despair, and more hope. It’s a rollercoaster that’s both escapist and a reflection on today’s reality and what was. We’re in a real world fight against a rise of far right ideology and fascism and a second rise of Nazi beliefs. To get a comic with some good ole Nazi punching is quite welcome.
