A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

Paul Dini.  Batman: Private Casebook. New York, NY: DC Comics, December 23rd 2008. 160 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is another comic book on Batman.  This particular title is a collection of seven short stories or mini-chapters of short stories.  The writer Paul Dini was the producer and screen writer for Batman: The Animated Series and if you enjoyed those cartoons in the 90s you will also enjoy the same feel of short episodes in this book, though the illustrators did vary from story to story.  Overall it was a fun read.

Here’s my weekend reading review, this time it is a post reviewing three comic books that are historical fictions…because Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

Patrick Weber.  1066: William the Conqueror. Paris, France: Europe Comics, November 10th 2015. 78 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

This is a comic that tells the story of the famous and important year of 1066 in English history and the events leading up to the battle of Hasting.  This work was originally published in France in 2011 and then translated into English in 2015.  Since the work was originally in French you really get a slightly favorable perspective of William of Normandy.  I suppose there would be no surprise there.  If you are into medieval theme comics or you are a guy who like to read comics with historical references this work might be enjoyable for you.  I thought in general it tells the history pretty well although there is creative literary license with the details.
