Binary System – The Batman Tribute Edition of “Our Favorite DeviantArtists”

Binary System Podcast has ONCE AGAIN been on the road this week (promise, folks, things will settle down soon. Probably just in time for San Diego Comic-Con to throw everything askew.) So instead of a podcast, this week we’re doing another post where we scroll through DeviantArt and look at all our favorite pieces. It’s a tough job, but we’ll do it for you, our loyal and devoted fans. All five of you.

We lost another one of our icons this month. Do a Batusi or two in honor of Adam West, and enjoy some Batman art from some of our favorite DeviantArtists.

Return to Arkham – How well does it age?

I purchased the Xbox One with the dream that the Batman Arkham series would be backwards compatible; getting a remastered version of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City was taking that dream and adding frosting, with bacon. Safe to say I was more than a little excited to revisit the series – though there was a nagging doubt that perhaps the game didn’t age well. Well, I put on my utility belt and grapple hooked my way into Arkham. I was more than surprised what I found.

Review – DC Rebirth Holiday Special

If you need a break from all the gloom and bad feelings going around lately, the Rebirth Holiday Special is the way to do it. I liked some of the stories more than others, but I enjoyed all of them, and while some of them tended to beat you over the head with tidings of comfort and joy, they mostly did it with nudges and winks.

Seems like all of our characters are battling it out: Cyborg fighting Killgore, the Justice League fighting fear itself, all while Gotham is being overrun by monsters. Even our earthbound Green Lanterns have to protect the Phantom Ring from the Dominators.

DC Rebirth – Sept 21st: Sad Cyborg, GL makes Cookies, Monsters in Gotham and guess who’s coming to dinner?

DC Rebirth continues its onslaught of the comic book industry: the August 2016 numbers had DC taking nine out of the top 10 best selling comics. It’s great news for DC Fans, though I’m very interested to see how Marvel responds.

There is a lot going on in the DC Universe this week as Gotham has a monster of a problem, Cyborg is doing a diagnostic on his soul, and Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz have a baking challenge. Oh and the Trinity get together for some dinner.

DC Rebirth: Sept 7th – Super Cyborgs, Superman’s Best Friend, Secret Identities Revealed and more

I’m actually surprised by now that a Blue Lantern Ring hasn’t found me, as each week I sit down to read the DC Rebirth and I HOPE. Specifically, I hope it continues to be awesome – and so far each week I’ve been surprised that it is. What I’ve been enjoying the most is reading books that normally wouldn’t be on my Pull List.

This week is no different as we see characters return, identities revealed, and deep questions arise about our heroes.
