Suicide Squad

Official Site:

Starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Kinnaman, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez

SSposterThis movie takes place after the events of Batman v Superman. Amanda Waller meets with some people and pushes her idea of Task Force X in a world without Superman. We spend a good chunk of the first part of the movie team-building. We get little snippets of how each person was apprehended. Which includes a few Batman scenes and one Flash scene. After the higher ups get a glimpse of what the Enchantress can do, Task Force X gets the greenlight.

Task Force X gets deployed after a failed mission by Rick Flagg and the Enchantress to stop a meta human threat in the subways of Midway city. Much gun play and violence ensue. Throughout the film, we follow the Joker as he works to get Harley Quinn out of custody.

TL;DR Didn’t feel like a complete story – had good segments. Kinda Meh.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


From IMDB: Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.

Starring: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne

TL;DR Good characterization of Batman (maybe my favorite) and Wonder Woman. Terrible Lex Luthor. Meh story and plots.


Binding DC Comic’s Robin

I wanted to show some of my recent bindings from Houchen Bindery.

Robin was an amazing title from DC – even after it was relaunched as Red Robin. This title was ended and Red Robin began after the Batman: Battle for the Cowl mini-series.

My map brings this title out to 12 volumes. I could only fit 10 in the box. Mapping Robin was not an easy task. I got a lot of help at The Comic Forums. Crossovers like Batman: Murderer, Batman:Fugitive and War Games have their own binds. I simply placed a notice in the appropriate volumes of when to see those stories.


Binding DC Comics’ Batgirl

The recent Batgirl title with Stephanie Brown was one of the best titles DC has put out in a long time. It is one of the casualties of the reboot and was killed well before its time. The final pages of the final issue left us with a taste of where Bryan Q. Miller could have taken the title.

I cannot stress how good this title was.

I went with Herring & Robinson Bookbinders as the binder for this title.

This was a fairly easy map. The title ran 24 issues with a brief crossover with Red Robin. One issue was supposed to be continued into an issue of Batman, Inc. But the delays on that title put the issue after the reboot.
