A weekly column in which Jake gives short blurbs about the comics he’s picked up that week. Reviewed in the order read, which varies but generally by increasing anticipation. Disclaimer: he knows very little about art, at least not enough to considerably honor such tremendous undertakings, so…yeh, there’s that.

Hoo boy! Revelations abound as the title shifts gears once again to Tim Drake in the hands of Mister Oz. Not only is the issue chock full of reveals, such as Oz’s identity 0_o, but it as serves as yet another wonderful character study of Tim Drake. The art might also be some of the best of the series (saying something), with every act of the story being portrayed in a slightly different style or light. This issue is incredible: it advances plot, gives great insight into characters, keeps you reeling with surprises and is actually a great jumping on point for new readers to boot. Perfect.
