    5-0 out of 5 stars Part IX of the Kirk Saga.What a great way to end the William Shatner Kirk saga!
    I have read everyone of the Shatner Kirk books since Ashes of Eden and I have greatly enjoyed everyone of them.There is nobody better to write a Kirk adventure than the man that invented Captain James T. Kirk.I've read a lot of Star Trek novels in my life time and none have fascinated me more than Shatner's Trek novels.With that said I want to review Captain's Glory.
    4-0 out of 5 stars James T. Kirk in all his "Glory"
    To get down to it, this was, for the most part, a pretty good book. Up until the ending, I felt it was the best out of the "Captain's ..." trilogy and it reminded me a lot of the Shatner & Co.'s Preserver saga. For once, there's a fair balance between Kirk's characterization and those of the other characters. Picard is written to be Kirk's equal on many fronts instead of being his lacky or sidekick as he at times comes off as in the previous books. There were some good crossover moments as well, including Voyager's Admiral Kathryn interacting with Kirk and Picard's crews, Riker and the Titan being involved, a glimpse at the Enterprise-E's new crew, Voyager's EMH Doctor and McCoy and Scotty backing up Kirk.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good action, and fun, but the end is dumb.
    Ok, so I LOVE to read about Kirk and his new adventures; THE RETURN is probably my favoritre trek book ever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dark, yet beautiful - a worthy addition to any collection
    "The Dark Knight Returns" is a magnificent illustrated story. The Batman, coming out of retirement in attempts to save Gotham one last time, struggles throughout this story as his body, his friends, and his city have all changed dramatically in the ten years since he last wore his suit.
    5-0 out of 5 stars DKR saved the comic book medium as we know it.
    DKR and Watchmen saved comics as we know it really.Up until that point (Mid 80's) comic books were cooky, comical, and poorly written.The medium had become dry and stagnet.Batman especially had became stagnet and sales for both Batman comics were at an all time low.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Not The True Batman
    There's certanly been enough written about this story, so I'll keep this review brief. All one really needs to know is that Frank Miller's characterization of Batman does a disservice to fans of the admirable hero with cunning detective skills. That is the Batman that most comic fans know and love. Not the cheesy, 1960's television version, nor the completely unrecognizable brute portrayed here. To boot, the author obviously doesn't understand Superman's appeal either.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get it. Now. You WONT be disappointed.
    This is probably the first Batman graphic novel I ever read, and it raised my expectations to possibly too high a level for the rest of my experience with the genre. It is one of the three best graphic novels I have ever read, and you should get it now. Anybody who claims to be a fan of comic-books and hasn't read this is a liar.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Miller at his finest.
    Even Miller himself doesn't have to be over the top ala Dark Knight Returns and Dark Knight Strikes back. The man can pen a well written story with shoving things down our throats. Here we are introduced to Carmine "The Roman" Falcone and how organized crime has taken a permanent residence in Gotham City. You can tell Nolan and Goyer were influenced by this piece of work in Begins. The inner monologue of Bruce Wayne hinting at his pent up frustation of the plague that infests Gotham City as he manifests that anger into the form of the Batman flows beautifully from the pages. I personally will take this over the ever overrated Dark Knight Returns any day!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the real BATMAN BEGINS
    Anyone who enjoyed the Btaman Begins movie will savor this Frank Miller retelling of Batman's first year as a crime fighter. Miller script is tight like his previous works or his Sin City stuff.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Series Continues
    Fires are killing Vampires all over the city which coincides with the Vampire Council coming to the city.Anita and Jean Claude have to deal with the Vampire Council and figure out who is starting the fires.I didn't care for all the political bull but otherwise a great book. Anita is having to deal with Richard again and she's sort of in control of the wereleopards now which was very interesting. There are just so many things going on in this book. All I can say is that once you start the series you just can't help being sucked in and find out what happens.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Burnt But Tastey!
    So, Anita's minding her own business just trying to come to grips with dating Master of the city, vampire Jean-Claude. You get a delightful sense of what they might be like as a couple without any one else's intervention. And then, ofcourse, they have a problem. The Council, governing powerhouse of all vamp kind, is still having problems with their story of how the council memeber known as the Earthmover died by their hand in book three, Circus of the Damned. They have come to put Jean-Claude and Anita threw some scary tricks to figure out if Jean-Claude really has designs on their power.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Just Adored This Book
    This is the book where you start to see Anita's power's emerge. Anita and Jean claude are both powerful and strong, together their better than ever. I hope there will always be something between them, their an exciting couple. I read guilty pleasures an up and loved each one. Laurell K. Hamilton pulls you in as a writer so that you can't wait to read whats next.

    Those of you expecting the 2007 calendar to be exclusively dedicated to the Next Generation in keeping with the 2006 format are in for a surprise.A splendid & varied assortment of scenes from the entire Star Trek universe are represented instead.Included are reinterpretations from all five series & the TNG movie era minus the Enterprse E (she doesn't get enough respect I say) and some interesting "What ifs?"The only real dissapointment is the centerfold scene which should have provoked the most awe... the infamous Borg Battle at Wolf 359 is rather uninspiring.Other than that, I am very happy with this year's entry!Since these calendars are starting to be peppered with non-canon material, I hope future calendar's include references to ships in the Pocket Books corner of the Star Trek Universe as well... the Excalibur, the Challenger, the Da Vinci & the Titan. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hush
    First off, hands down to Jim Lee and what those five amazing digits can do! His artwork is intense as it is passionate. It conveys strong emotions ranging from anger, insanity, and lust which fit as the perfect art medium to this story written by Jeph Loeb ("Long Halloween", "Smallville", "Superman for all seasons") who is no stranger to superheroes. What do you get when you combine a mystery full of whodunit, a wonderful cast of characters (I use this loosely, I will go into more detail later) and a story so full of energy leaving you breathless and gasping for more? A wonderful witches brew created by two of the biggest names in the comic books industry, 'Hush'.
    5-0 out of 5 stars drool worthy artwork
    finally, a top writer and a top artist on a monthly run. the story is one of loeb's best and the art is to die for. own it just to gaze on each of the panels. def. a must buy/own.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A pathetic attempt to modernize classic mythology
    Hush is a shallow and blatant 'monster mash' of characters disguising itself as an epic. culminate Batman story. Everything from Lee's generic and derivative character re-imagings (like what you'd expect to find in something produced by Image comics) to the plot. And by plot, I mean the tiringly episodic reintroduction of a character followed by quick battle and then 'on to the next one', sequence that only stops at the unveiling of a new, non compelling villain. In other words, if you're into mainstream american comics, you'll love this. If you want a real Batman story, Check out "Long Halloween," Alan Moore's "Killing Joke", Frank Miller's 'Dark Knight Returns" and Neil Gaiman's "Arkham Asylum: Serious House on Serious Earth. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Psycho Circus
    When people describe Batman and any related character, a prevailing word is dark. Well, what exactly is dark when it comes to a psychotic billionaire with three dimensional villains? Grant Morrison answers this question and offers a brilliant take inside Gotham's Dark Knight. Respectively named, Arkham Asylum takes the reader into a psychological journey using myth, symbol, and powerful dialog that will surely make this buy an unforgettable read. Coupled with Dave McKean of The Wolves of the Walls fame whose art evokes surrealism and an otherwordly nightmarish atmosphere that perfectly compliments Grant Morrison's wizardly writing. When I first ordered Arkham Asylum, it was my first reintroduction to the Bat. Forget Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's dark film noir of Batman the animated series. Forget the 1989 blockbuster which propelled AA's sales. Not even last year's Batman Begins could do this dark twisted novel justice. This is the Batman that makes the Adam West version look like the Teletubbies. This Batman ain't for kiddies, folks! Arkham Asylum is Ozzy Osbourne meets Aleister Crowley without slipping into shock for shock sake. I highly reccomend getting the Anniversary Edition which answers many of the questions as well as interesting inside tidbits that didn't make it to the final cut.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant artwork, overstrained story
    I'll start by saying whats great: Dave McKean. As usual, his macabre style and collage style are the best I've seen, and he really shines in sequential-format. Pick this book up on the strength of the artwork alone and you won't be dissapointed. Its visceral and beautiful, and i can't recommend it enough.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Great artwork, no Batman though...
    The artwork is amazing, truly makes the Joker look like a real mad man who actually can scare you. However, outside of the art work, the story is shallow and boring, with hardly any Batman. Another problem is that the text is hard to read, especially for the Joker, it's so stylized that you'll be straining to read it. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars I don't understand why so many praise this so highly
    First of all, i just really couldn't get into art work, i mean the characters heads and facial structures are just so distorted that they almost look as if they have down syndrome. I will admit though that the Joker although looking extremely cartoonish with the oversized teeth, still came off very fresh look, Batman however looked slightly wimpy and not nearly as intimidating or imposing as he usually does when drawn by other artists such as Jim Lee, Norm Breyfogle or Graham Nolan just to name a few.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic tale from Batman's early years (5 stars)
    The Long Halloween expands on the origin story created by Frank Miller with Batman: Year One.Gotham City is ruled by mobsters with Carmine Falcone at the head.Batman finds that he can't bring Falcone down on his own but the shaky alliances he formed with Harvey Dent and Lieutenant Gordon in the first book merge to find the three working together to bring down the mob boss.As Falcone's men start getting knocked off systematically on holidays (the mystery killer is subsequently dubbed "Holiday"), Batman, Gordon and Dent scramble to uncover the killer's identity and get as much evidence as possible to incriminate Falcone.The twists and turns through this 13 issue series are classic, iconic, and confusing making rereads not only necessary but exciting as well.The morally ambiguous conclusion and the surprise ending by Jeph Loeb brilliantly recall the mood of such classic films as The Empire Strikes Back and The Usual Suspects; his work here is his best in any medium.Tim Sale's physically intimidating Batman is the perfect blend of seasoned fighter, master detective, and stealthy prowler and the art is consistently beautiful and brooding throughout the series.The Long Halloween is Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's most famous and critically acclaimed book and the brilliant world they create to transition from Miller's Gotham to the classic Gotham that readers are familiar with, by including cameos of some of the pantheon of Batman villains in their "earliest" appearances, is masterful.Anyone looking to read up on the Dark Knight would do well to start with Year One and then pick up this classic tale of crime and mystery in Gotham City.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb!
    I came back from a ten year Bat hiatus this time last year after reading an essay on the Dark Knight in my English 101 class. Back then Batman was apart of my daily afterschool TV diet: The character, the stories, the rogues gallery. He was an integral part of my childhood and now as I embark on a second chapter in my life I am thrilled to say that he is still there. After reading up on what was going on during DCs Infinite Crisis/One Year Later, I asked around for what the fans thought was the best, or at least a really good, Batman story. All the answered varied but I did notice a pattern and Long Halloween was one story I decided to risk and tackle.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Batman Story, But a Bit Dark (Literally)
    I mostly approve of this latest take on the dark knight (another reviewer's allegations of shameless political preaching and occasional moral aimlessness on the part of supposedly "good" characters are not entirely off base, I have to say). The story is well above par, with lots of memorable moments, and the art is good... occasionally great. My main gripe is that many of the pages are so dark you can barely make out what's happening. It's probably due to the cheap newsprint, because the monthly books from this arc looked beautiful. I'd have preferred to pay a few bucks more for decent paper and printing.

    1-0 out of 5 stars horrible
    Simply horrible. The villains used (abused) in this comic all look pahtetic. They are made into jokes and do not serve any plot process. The amount of politics stuffed into the book, especally in the Poision Ivy Chapter is sickening. Ivy came back from the dead, with great new powers and all of a sudden she is knocked out in about two seconds. Thats great. I consider myself a pretty big batman fan but even I was like "WHO THE HECK IS THE GREAT WHITE SHARK?!?" Some big suprise. The badguy has been in jail all a long, batman hummilates him and goes on. Not to mention that Jason Bard, Batman's new partner is disgusting and immoral. A horrible arc all around.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A BIT PREDICTABLE BUT SOLID
    "Batman: Face the Face" promises major changes in the Batman Universe and for the most part it does a good job of living up to the hype. The trade paperback collects Detective Comics issues 817 - 820 and Batman issues 651 - 654. Batman and Robin have returned to Gotham City after a year-long absence due to the events in Infinite Crisis. It's a different Batman that returns. One that is willing to admit to past mistakes and also rely on the help of others. He's even wiped the slate clean with Gotham Police Detective Bullock. In his absence, Batman appointed the Harvey Dent, the former villain Two-Face, as the city's protector. Dent has been reformed and had his face surgically repaired.

    A STAR WARS FANtastic book!! I'm pretty curious about things, how things work, how to do this and that, and how movies are made. If you are like me and love Star Wars, you will love this book! A little pricey, but worth it! This is a definite must have for all Star Wars fans!! It has alot of rare and exclusive photos, and information on the making of the movies. It is all together a beautiful book to be displayed, and is great for any fan who is curious about the movies!

    Star Wars related books are legion, but the hands down best-and the champion film-tie-in book period-is the [massive (15"x10.5")] Star Wars Chronicles. Just mentioning the book's title can make diehard fanboys cream their trooper armor. Yeah, it's that good. Home costumers, model makers, artists, and prop geeks especially lust after the Chronicles for its rich mine of simply stunning and often unique OT reference photos. Next to a genuine Graflex or MPP lightsaber hilt, the Chronicles is any Star Wars fan's most prized possession. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The middle of a saga is always the best!
    Just like Empire Strikes Back, Dark Force Rising is the pinnacle of what the middle portion of a saga is all about.There is tons of action and the book is so well written that you won't want to put it down.
    4-0 out of 5 stars The Force is with you!
    "Dark Force Rising" Volume 2 of the Thrawn Trilogy. Grand Admiral Thrawn continues his attempt to finish off the struggling New Republic. Talon Karrde, the smuggler who took Jabba's place is slowly being pulled over to the New Republic's side even though his right hand Mara Jade (The Emperors' Hand before he died) wants nothing to do with the new republic and who's only goal has been to kill Luke Skywalker. The two opposing sides race for a lost fleet of about 200 ships. The winner will have the upper hand in the continuing battle. Meanwhile the newly surfaced Jedi master plots to capture Leia, her twins and Luke.
    4-0 out of 5 stars story holds well 15 years later
    It's amazing how much of the prequel trilogy draws from Zahn's phenomenal Thrawn trilogy.Although the writing is often hackneyed (Han growled, Luke grinned...over and over like that), the book elaborates on themes introduced in the movies.Dark Force Rising is better written than Heir to the Empire, and it details elements alluded to in that first novel.The political wrangling between Ackbar, Mothma and Feylya is reminiscent of (foreshadows???) the similar play between Palpatine, the Jedi and the senate (from the prequels).Zahn goes into the mind of Leia as she negotiates with the Noghri and balances her beliefs with her duty to the New Republic (like mom).By the end of ROTJ, I had no idea who the clones were and whether they were bad or good (not sure if even Lucas had fleshed this out yet).At the end of Dark Force Rising, Zahn hints at the origin of the stormtroopers and in hindsight, gives a nod to their clone ancestors.Well done. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Last Command
    Zahn is an excellent author, and I really enjoy his Thrawn series.Very easy reading and it seems to flow seemlessly with the original Star Wars movies.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great finale!
    "The Last Command" book 3 of 3 by Timothy Zahn.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Thrawn Finale
    A great finish to the trilogy.I wish all Star Wars books reached this standard of drama and action.I will admit though that the ending felt rushed, especially the part with Luke (and Luuke).

    2-0 out of 5 stars Methinks Jeph Loeb Needs A Vacation
    Don't get me wrong: Jeph Loeb, chief writer on DC's terrific "Superman/Batman" series, has done outstanding work with these two players -- the rock solid foundation of the DC Universe ... but VENGEANCE -- by its bitter anticlimax -- feels very much like a conglomeration of ideas instead of one masterful story from start to finish.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than previous reviews describe
    Lately I've been disappointed more often than not by the newer graphic novels and compendiums that have hit the store shelves but in the case of Vengeance I have to say this is really good stuff. Jeff Loeb introduces an all new team of superheroes called the Maximums that seem oddly familiar. The team is an extremely blatant homage to the Avengers/Ultimates including a mythical Viking, a super soldier, a giant man named skyscraper and so on and so forth. The team even includes doppelgangers of Spider Man and Wolverine. This is not an Avengers rip off but a playful imitation of Marvel's super team and it's pretty clear that this is likely a one time appearance for the Maximums. Late in the story there is a nod to fans of The Ultimates when the Maximums are merged into a single being called The `Ultimate' Warrior (or is it a nod to fans of the worst pro-wrestler ever). Meanwhile Batman and Superman are merged into a single being called the Composite Superman and believe me I'm old enough to remember the original Composite Superman. It's these kinds of nods and winks running through the story that made it so enjoyable.
    3-0 out of 5 stars I Don't Think I Recommend It
    I am reading it for the second time now to make sure that I don't recommend it.I WANT to recommmend it because the first three were so good, but this one is just too unbelievable.I mean, it is a comic book granted, and we know it isn't real... but putting in an additional Superman and Batman from an alternative universe, Bizzaro, and now "Batzarro", and Mr. Mxyzptlk talking about how some Superman/Batman stories haven't been put in graphic novel form yet, AND the Joker with godlike powers... Lex Luthor.. a bunch of supergirls.. a bunch of batmen... a bunch of supermen.. new "justice league".. Darkseid... Tim Drake from Batman Beyond... a kryptonite monster that keeps changing forms... Batman and Superman combined into a BatSuper Creature... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars What Star Wars Could have Become
    I hadn't bothered to read this series before, but since I've vowed not to give Lucas anymore of my viewing dollars, I decided to get a little Star Wars fix by reading these.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Heir to the Empire a story to behold.
    Star Wars Heir to the empire is the first of the three stories Timothy Zahn has wrote and is one to behold. A story with drama, dramatic irony, climatic scenes, and so much more. The story takes place after the events of Return of the Jedi. Han and Leia are married and Leia is pregnant with twins, the Empire while weakened is still under the rule of the most cunning of the few remaining warlords known as Grand Admiral Thrawn with a plot to take down the New Republic,and Luke Skywalker still struggling with his newly pronouced state as a Jedi Master goes seeking out an old currupted Jedi Master named Master C'boath. While these events play out though, a smuggler named Karrde and his partner Mara Jade go out to find information about Thrawn's plans with Karrde's buisness. While the fact Mara wants to kill Luke Skywalker for some reason.
    5-0 out of 5 stars AMW--I dont have Lindsay Lohan so Ill just to stick to Star Wars for now
    If you are a Star Wars fan, a must buy. I thought Grand Admiral Thrawn was a great villain- complete opposite of Darth Vader which only makes you like each character more. These two villains were great but the best villain w/o ? is Walker Texas Ranger. Can somebody tell me why that show is on twenty four hours a day on every channel. Or maybe I'm in a nightmare, man I really do need Lindsay Lohan ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely TERRIBLE
    As I stated in a previous Star Wars book review (`Yoda: Dark Rendezvous'), gems in the literary SW Universe are scarce, sparse, few, and far in-between - this graphic novel is no exception to that rule. In a nutshell, `The Fall of the Sith Empire' sucks. Hard. For some reason, the whole prehistoric, almost Egyptianesque, civilization of an ancient Republic and advanced technology (e.g. flying starships) just didn't mesh together in my opinion. I'm not saying the suspension of disbelief in such a setting is a futile effort for a reader, but the task becomes a lot harder to envision with the uninspired art and simpleton dialogue showcased throughout this graphic novel. Aside from all of that, the story is just, well, boring: twin hyperspace explorers cruise the galaxy, one of them gets kidnapped by a Sith, the Sith lord uses the other twin to infiltrate the Republic, and then the Jedi help defend the Republic against the Sith Empire. Same ole, same ole.
    3-0 out of 5 stars O.K. visuals, story a little lacking
    This TBP is the second in the Tales of the Jedi story, if you are going chronologically in star wars time. It takes place a 1,000 years before the original Tales of the Jedi, and takes place a week or so after "Golden Age of the Sith". Out of the "TOTJ" series, it is one of the worst, but still better than most of the TBP's out there. I reccommend it for people trying to complete their TOTJ collection, not for a stand-alone read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars pitifully bad
    don't waste your time. i just read through all the tales of the jedi books and this one is by far the worst, and is horribly bad. i know you might get it because you, like i did, want to read them all...but trust me you'll only be wasting time and money on this one it's that bad. ... Read more

    These stories are filled with little gems of 60s culture and campiness.Stories where bad is bad, good is good, and Batman is quite the boyscout: loved and respected by all law-abiding citizens.Batman, with the aid of Robin, and his amazing Univac computer, solve every mystery thrown his way.With the aid of Commissioner Gordon and with a guest appearance by Elastic Man, Batman and Robin face the likes of the Riddler, Penguin, and Joker.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Where the reign of the modern Batman begins (4.5 stars)
    Dark Victory takes place in the aftermath of the Holiday killings that ravaged Gotham City in The Long Halloween.The triumvirate of crime fighting from the previous book has been deeply changed with an overwhelmed Jim Gordon as the newly appointed Comissioner of Police, Harvey Dent turned into the psychotic Two-Face, and Batman darker, lonelier, and more violent than ever.As Batman's influence on Gotham continues to increase, so do the number of "freaks" that infest Gotham and its insane asylum, Arkham.After a prison break from Arkham, the "freaks" start wreaking havoc on the organized crime families which are quickly losing their grip on the city.Batman is struggling to fight villain after villain while juggling the newly orphaned Dick Grayson and trying to solve the case that could break his crime-fighting career.Dark Victory gives another twisted crime mystery for its readers to unravel with all the darkness and drama they've come to expect from a Loeb/Sale book.The twist in Dark Victory is just as good as The Long Halloween's but takes a backseat to the changes befalling Gotham City which are brilliantly and subtly written by Jeph Loeb.The slow overtaking of Gotham City by such villains as Two-Face, The Joker, and Penguin by having them duke it out with traditional organized crime is a stroke of genius that has been creeping its way through this story since the last page of Year One.Dark Victory is almost as classic as The Long Halloween but since the story is slightly recycled and the art a bit more rushed, it isn't flat-out amazing as consistently as its predecessor.Even despite those minor flaws, Dark Victory is a fantastic book and a perfect way to wrap up the mythos of Batman's early career and segue into classic Batman universe.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Dualling Identities
    Loeb and Sale improve upon the Long Halloween with a gripping mystery that succeeds in tension and suspense where I felt the long Halloween failed. More important than the mystery is the continued look at the relationships of the characters in Gotham City. Jim Gordon and Batman, Jim Gordon and his wife. Batman and Selina Kyle in their heart-breakingly unconsummated relationship and Batman and Robin.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Last Stands and Origins
    In the sequel to the amazing The Long Halloween, Batman/Bruce Wayne and Police Commissioner Jim Gordon are out to catch a cop-killer who hangs both current and ex cops on holidays, very similar to the exploits of Holiday, AKA Alberto Falcone.The difference is that Holiday always struck at members of the Falcone crime family.Complicating the investigation is the fact that, with the Falcone family in ruins, the streets of Gotham City have become infested with "freaks", the supervillains who comprise Batman's Rogues Gallery.Chief among them are Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, the ex-District Attorney whose face was half burned off by acid.Furthermore, the Joker, Batman's chief nemesis, the Scarecrow, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, the Riddler, and Catwoman are making things very hard for Batman.
