Batman 12 DCNUFanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.



Batman #12
by Scott Snyder and Becky Cloonan

Batman #12 is unlike any Batman comic I have ever read before, and I could not be happier. Scott Snyder tells an amazing story about a young woman who is inspired by Batman to change her life for the better, and in doing so he may have just created a new favorite Bat character. What really stands out about this book thoughout is the amazing art by Becky Cloonan. Her style is fresh, vibrant, and, unlike a lot of the darker art we're used to in Batman books, a lot of fun. Even better, Snyder writes to her strengths, so that her style fits this story perfectly. You will definitely want to pick up this book, as it may be the standout issue of the year, and you definitely don't want to miss the introduction of Harper Row, the coolest new DC character.

Liquid LoveAny history geeks reading this article will be well aware that today, August 7th, marks the birthday of Elizabeth Bathory, the noblewoman and horrific serial killer who terrorized Eastern Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries.  The frightful terror, who was believed to bathe in virgin blood to maintain her youth and beauty, will be the villainess in Weirdsmobile Productions' upcoming feature film, Chastity Bites.  In order to celebrate their villainess' birth, Weirdsmobile is debuting a music video for TL Forsberg’s single, “Liquid Love.” The video, in which Forsberg portrays a Bathory-esque character, can be found on the production company's YouTube Channel.

Nick TarabayAt the 2012 Saturn Awards, actor Nick Tarabay (Spartacus, Star Trek 2) talks with Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon about his work on Spartacus, his love of fantasy and science fiction, and his non-denial about his participation in the new Star Trek film!






Lin ShayeAt the 2012 Saturn Awards, actress Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Critters, There's Something About Mary) talks with Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon about her work in the horror genre, what draws her to her projects, and what she has coming up next!







Dancer 4Nathan Edmondson writes the best action/thriller comics today. He has killed it with books like The Activity, Who is Jake Ellis?, and Grifter. So, there was no doubt in my mind that Dancer, his latest creation would be just as awesome. Even though I highly enjoy his work, I've been especially impressed with Dancer. What makes Nathan's work especially poignant are the characters he crafts and the relationships he builds for them. Between all the intrigue, violence, and mystery, he manages to fit very realistic human moments in all of his books. Without giving away too much about this series' unique twist, let's just say that Dancer has one of the more unique hero/villain relationships and that really shines through in this issue.
