A bland act 8

SPOILERS are most likely to pop up here. So I'm reading all the villain month books to see if they can draw in new readers and all that jazz. This should be an interesting one as I've never seen this version of Ventriloquist so there's a lot for this issue to show off. The Good:This issue does a very good job of showing off just what this version of Ventriloquist is capable of and it's some pretty neat stuff. She's certainly got more going for her than the previous characters to use the name. I...

Another Super-Creepy Story From Gail Simone! 0

This review originally went up on my personal blog here.The Ventriloquist’s previous appearances in the New 52 DC universe have been within the pages of Gail Simone’s fantastic Batgirl #20-21, which are two of the most creepiest comics I’ve read with a superhero, ever.

She seems to have a pretty cool powerset but it isn't really explained. We see some details from her childhood but no real justification or motivation on why she has become the person she is today. The art is pretty good so th...

Batman: The Dark Knight #23.1: The Ventriloquist – “Don’t Ever Trust a Creepy Puppeteer’s Food.” 0

IntroIt’s another edition of villain’s month with The Ventriloquist! Ever since, I have read about The Ventriloquist at Batgirl I have been disappointed. Maybe because I’m a big fan of the original and that’s because I enjoyed that version in Batman: TAS so much. Just to see a New 52 version of the original one would have been awesome to me at least. To be honest, I’m not really sold on this one. There’s too much of an exaggeration of the creepiness in her. I even think her design looks too much...
