4.2 Panel (and a bit about "Batman: Year 100")

I never did get around to reviewing issue #1 or #2 of Batman: Year 100 (i will once the run is complete), but i want it to be known that i'm really enjoying Paul Pope's mini far.

I admit at first i thought the art was crap (unfriendly commentary i know) but it's grown on me (i'm a fan now) and the writing has been exceptional... I'm enjoying Paul Pope's dark take on Gotham City in the future (as if Gotham needed to get any darker) and his solid 2030 (something) Commish Gordon and Batman, not to mention a pretty cool storyline...

If you're becoming a fan of Paul Pope, I would suggest Heavy Liquid and 100% out of DC, his short tale in Bizarro Comics and Solo #3. In that order, too.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
