The world of comics is complicated, with multiple companies (and universes) to keep track of. Luckily, CC2K has Joey Esposito, our resident expert on all things pulpy and good. Each week, Joey will break down what's happening in the world of comics, so you can pick up right where he left off. Today, he discusses the ramifications of Ra's al Ghul's resurrection in the world of Batman.
With the Civil War over (yes, the final issue isn't due for another two weeks, with tie-in books like Frontline and Amazing Spider-Man intertwined in the same temporal fate; it truly "ended" a long time ago), I've taken my opportunity to look back and highlight exactly where Civil War went horribly awry, and take it further by highlighting the top five dumbest things that came out of this trite piece of over-the-top, incomprehensible trash they pawn off on general culture as "contemporary political allegory." Please. I've seen more accurate depictions of current US political climate in episodes of The Real Ghostbusters.
