Get Batman #2 here: http://bit.ly/29lFvZd
This week, six DC Rebirth comics go on sale: Justice League: Rebirth #1, Batman #2, Aquaman #2, Green Lanterns #2, Superman #2, and Green Arrow #2. Well, I’ve read Batman #2 (by Tom King, David Finch, Jordie Bellaire, Matt Banning, and Danny Miki) and I’m here to tell you that it’s awesome. Were you planning to read Batman #2 no matter what I say about it? Odds are the answer is yes for many of you, but some of you out there may still be on the fence, or maybe you completely forgot that a new Dark Knight comic is available tomorrow. If you’re one of those people, hopefully the upcoming babbling will convince you to give it a shot. And for those already looking forward to the comic, I hope this gets you even more excited to read the Caped Crusader’s upcoming issue. Now, I’ll stop with the vague praise and get a little more specific, but don’t worry, this article is spoiler-free!

Toy Fair is the Super Bowl for Action Figure Junkies and this year was a big one for AFJ, personally, since I got snowed out two of the four days in 2015. So it was all business for me in 2016 with a solid 16 appointments set up and a madcap schedule for the four day marathon event. By the time I came around to my DC COLLECTIBLES walk-through, I was pretty much spent for the day desperate to take a knee. However, as if the doctor had pulled the paddles out and yelled, “CLEAR!!” to his staff, new life was brought to me in the form of DC COLLECTIBLES’ court jester, Mr. Jim Fletcher.

My first issue of the Flash changed the way I looked at comics. It was during the Geoff Johns run, and the Flash was teaming up with Nightwing, fighting against Gorilla Grodd in the Flash Museum. It was an immediately exciting issue, but there was something more to it that hooked me; The Flash Museum itself. The Flash was smashing through exhibits focused on his villains, while Grodd tore through statues in his quest to vanquish his foe. There was a history to these characters, and their world. Nightwing and Flash were best friends, and referenced their past. It was a whole world of curiosity and adventure. With DC Rebirth, I feel this same sense of adventure. I feel a history, I feel a curiosity, I feel a smile creeping across my face as I turn every page. And it’s a feeling I welcome.
I remember the first time I had watched the live-action Batman TV show starring Adam West & Burt Ward. I was five years old and was completely enthralled at this age of the Caped Crusader. I wanted any and all toys having to do with anything Batman. Now, through the magic of technology, I had a TV show and something to record episodes I missed on. This new gizmo my Dad brought home from NYC was called a “VCR” and Poppa Junkie dropped $800 on it for his growing family.
