Peregrine Comics Weekly Roundup Issue 2

8/24/2020

This Week’s Top Dog Comic

After the pulse pounding conclusion of DC Rebirth, nearly four and a half years ago, comes the answers we’ve all been waiting for, in Batman: Three Jokers. Waaaaay back in 2015, Batman sat himself down on the Mobius Chair, unraveling the secrets of the universe, chief among all, the revelation of three, unique Clown Princes of Crime running amuck across the DC Universe. Now, Justice League/ DC Rebirth writer, Geoff Johns comes to finish off his grand tale with fan-favorite artist, Jason Fabok. And you’re definitely getting bang for your buck, as this miniseries will have extra pages like most of the Black Label titles. This is a comic for the ages, and you better be ready, because a little bird told me that we won’t be getting THAT many copies (insert proper emoji here). 

Series Highlight By Aaron

Looks like it’s a Joker themed week here at the Roundup! James Tynion IV’s Batman run has just been high octane fun from the get-go, and issue #97 is no exception. #97 starts us off right in the middle of the Joker War, a mini event across all the Batman titles. Masked clowns run rampant across Gotham, and truth be told, Batman can’t be everywhere at once… so in steps Clownhunter, Gotham’s newest young vigilante! Plus, Punchline turns up the heat on Batman as she and her goons continue to barrate him and steal more of his company’s fortune. I was not the biggest fan of Tom King’s run, so it’s nice to see a completely different voice behind the character, which you can tell Tynion is having a blast writing.

Series Highlight By Jasper

I’m loving the monster-of-the-week vibe the last few Hellblazer books have had. After tackling nationalism, abusive relationships and other hard-hitting topics, this book focuses on the less public hobbies of the royal family and other aristocrats as John recounts a tale for a tabloid reporter in a seedy pub. It seems his future self is up to his usual antics, having given a rich creep the means to breed a magic horse. Our boy Constantine is called in to consult on the unusual pregnancy, and antics unfold from there. Spurrier and company continue to bring the heat (usually in the form of hellfire), and this book is a fantastic appetizer for the new Hellblazer: Rise and Fall series coming soon from DC Black Label.
