I FRACKING LOVE thIt's now free boys and girls. I am not the hugest proponent of Guided View but now you can have a go and it won't cost you a thing.
I FRACKING LOVE this series though! Do not get me wrong. This 5* is for not only one of the most original ideas I've seen in a long time for Batman but its excellent execution. If you don't mind waiting the traditional single issues get printed every month and it really shows you how great the entire book is.
Honestly. Pick it up. It's free. There is literally no longer any excuse.
Hmm...5 8(!?!) books just showed up for free this week I wonder if we should be worried for them:
I hope that whatever is going on in Mr. Parker's brain never ceases cause he's on a roll. I honestly cannot get enough of this and it pains me to haveI hope that whatever is going on in Mr. Parker's brain never ceases cause he's on a roll. I honestly cannot get enough of this and it pains me to have to wait each month for the single issues to be printed. I know I know I could get them earlier but that's even more pain.
One question though and I am going to have to Google a bit but what is the deal with Babs' hair? I am super confused as to whether it was in the show like this or was it a costume thing.. or something else. But the black haired Barbara and the redheaded Batgirl is... in need of some research. I'm sure there's a reason. I just don't have it.
This months story was hilarious. Great Scott's and all. Highly recommended for anyone who's interested. Also noticing that each monthly doesn't make a mess of continuity you can just pick up and go - there's no need to feel left out at all. Because of the campiness of the show they explain who everyone is and their dastardly plan so you're good. No ones leaving anyone behind in the ... erm, ahem, dust ;-)...more
Absolutely loving it. And I have to say there is something very special about the fact that I can't read this one digitally. I just like having it inAbsolutely loving it. And I have to say there is something very special about the fact that I can't read this one digitally. I just like having it in my hands each month. Bravo.
Everything about this book is perfect. The art, the writing, the completely impossible trips in aircraft (really the plural of aircraft is aircraft...whether it be due to costume or physics. It's a wild ride and you best get on. Cause I don't ever want it to stop....more

This is more of the same of what I have come to know and love about '66. If Jeff Parker keeps this up he may find himself on more than a few of my favorites shelves. I am completely ok with that!
Oh it's official, I freaking love '66. I am torn because I feel on one hand this could only happen in 2013 and on the other I don't understand why noOh it's official, I freaking love '66. I am torn because I feel on one hand this could only happen in 2013 and on the other I don't understand why no one went and made this into a comic before! Seriously though if you were ever a fan of the Adam West 1960s Batman you're going to love this. There really isn't much more to say that than. I really like how well thought out and developed the story is and bonus it's hilarious.
One sad note. I tried reading the Digital First version... first? and decided to pick up the print editions. I can't recommend it enough. The colors pop and you aren't forced into the guided mode that frankly makes me feel like someone is forcing my eye like I haven't learned how to read comic books since I was 5. How unfortunate.
Anyway this book was great and I can't wait to give the trade to my friends and family with a dastardly grin and a HA HA HA :P...more
Loved it. I don't want to ruin a thing so this review is going to be short. Peter Clines is KATN, every book is honestly getting better and better. FuLoved it. I don't want to ruin a thing so this review is going to be short. Peter Clines is KATN, every book is honestly getting better and better. Funny thing is, I thought he was already at the top of his game with his Ex series. I am speechless. The book centers around a group living in an strange apartment. By the time things get going you won't even realize how much information you gleamed or how much time has past. I honestly was surprised at moments and other times glad to see things happen that made sense. While the story is clearly set in a reality when things start going in a different direction it doesn't seem forced or faked at all. You really believe what it happening and the story really doesn't take you out of it at any moment. I was a fan.
One thing, if I ever start my own mystery gang... nope can't do it. Read this book! It's very good....more

Fans of the series will get a wonderfully written new entry and enjoy every minute of it. I'm waiting to do my review until the audiobook comes out. Hopefully next week. I burned though this so quickly I can't even remember all the point where I LOL'd for reals.
Alright so I'm still reading this faster than should. I honestly loved this book. It was a perfect installment to this series. Whether you're here now because of your love of scifi, the movie, or randomly picked off the store shelves I think there's something for us all.
Between the voice of Cent and the actual narrator (I must find out how old she was Holy smokes Emily Rankin AKA Emily Janice Card [yup!!]) it really sounds like a teenager was telling you this story. I think it's great. I mean I know it's Gould's writing but really it reads like Cent is real and this is a story about what her life is like in a very important transition of her life. She gets to go to public school. If only it were that simple. Even knowing the most common traps and pitfalls is not going to get this girl through the day. I appreciate how real the day to day felt even in a family with super powers.
I don't remember who said it, and if you do - please reply, but I once heard of someone talking about a show or movie with a good bit of people with super powers. I'm paraphrasing here but "it's not about the powers they have but the people they truly are". Clearly it's stuck with me and here is another great example of "normal" humans getting extraordinary things done. No spoilers but it never seems forced or unrealistic. It just seems like this is how this particular family unit lives.
Now all those positives said I have one negative. Any seasoned fan... hell a n00b who's paying attention realizes that David has a fairly real paranoia from his previous experiences in the series. So can anyone tell me, throughout all the safety measures and precautions, hacks in phones limiting cell tower pickup, disguises, etc etc. Why he would allow his daughter to bring in the most exotic lunches to school daily? It's absurd and it really pains me to say it. I welcome everyone's opinion on this but I think that's the only thing within the pages where I groan internally and try and act like it's not a big deal even though any reasonable person knows that that is like putting a big bullseye on an already hunted individual (family).
See I can't even figure out how to follow that paragraph. It puts such a downer on a very excellent book. I wish everyone could read this. This is one of the super powers on my "if it were real, I'd like that" list. Nightcrawler anyone? YES! Just the idea of a cool family where the sky is the limit living in a world with limits abound makes this interesting. Even if you didn't have..hmm what are they called this time around? Oh, no worries. Even if you didn't have "them" you can still believe that showing off their ability to teleport in the world would be a no no. Who wants that kind of attention.
Yeah I'm sorry, I just can't get the flow back. The food this is minor. I swear on my life. It just cuts me up a bit cause Cent, David, or Millie - some combination of the Rice family, could've been the one cooking fabulous meals on a daily basis and it wouldn't have stuck out as much. Reading or in the moment. Arg. Definitely going on my "read to many times I'm embarrassed to admit it" shelf. I cannot wait to see what Gould does next. My only sincere hope is that it doesn't take another decade to read about it. BUT if it does it cool. I know it's aged well....more
