About 

Growing up, Nick White dreamed of a career with the Chicago Bulls. This is because he was young and stupid, and his parents were of the "you can do ANYTHING" mentality. When he was older, and probably not a whole lot smarter, Nick purchased Alan Moore's From Hell on a whim (that in itself probably says a lot). He was astounded to find that comics were as bizarre and twisted as his beloved Twin Peaks. After that he bought Batman: The Black Mirror strictly on the cover's aesthetics (Who the hell is Scott Snyder?" he said) and hasn't looked back since. Except, of course, in situations that necessitate such. When he's not "busy" playing Castlevania or harassing Zander about what he ought to be reading, Nick continues to work on his makeshift shrine to Jeff Lemire.

Braving a Bruce-Free Batbook

July 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

I think, in some way, everybody remembers the first Batman story they read. Granted, the plot points, Rogue’s Gallery members, or just who happened to be “on deck” in the all-too-rotational position of Robin may...

Ahoy, my fellow Venturites (provided “ahoy” is actual maritime lingo, and not something concocted to lure landlubbers like myself into a false sense of belonging), I can safely say that the fifth installment of The...
