Ten More Of The Best ‘Batman: Black & White’ Stories (So Far)

Bw11 Ten More Of The Best Batman: Black & White Stories (So Far)

If you’re getting a sense of deja vu right now, that’s because you actually have read this article before. Right before the latest volume of Batman: Black & White began back in 2013, ComicsAlliance published a list of the ten best stories in the celebrated anthology series. But the fourth volume was really, really good, and included some stories strong enough to be considered among the very best.

Making a new version of that same list with just a few replacements would be cheating you, and require me to read my own writing (ecch). So instead, we’re just going to stick with the ‘ten best’ thing. Here are the highlights from the latest volume of Black & White, and a few that were barely edged out of the first list. Will there be another version of this article after the next volume? You bet your ass. We’re gonna stay here until we get this right, people.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Blade Runner, Annie Hall, Mononoke, Endless, Agent Carter and More

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

All Of DC’s ‘Convergence’ Covers, Solicitations & Chip Kidd Variants For April In One Place

DC’s major springtime event this year sees all of the company’s staff pack their belongings into boxes and ship them across country to Burbank. (Good luck!) While that’s happening, all of the characters in DC’s comics will be summoned to Battleworld by the Beyonder (or… close enough) for Convergence, a two-month pause in the company’s New 52 publishing schedule, filled with a sort of nostalgia coleslaw of fresh chopped continuity from before Flashpoint, before Zero Hour, and before Crisis, with stories by Gail Simone, Greg Rucka, Keith Giffen, Nicola Scott, ChrisCross, Joshua Middleton, Jeff Parker, Bill Sienkiewicz, and many more.

All this week, DC has been unveiling covers for the first month of titles through various outlets. We’ve collected them here with the solicitation copy, so you can admire some fun throwback art — including great pieces by Babs Tarr, Becky Cloonan, Steve Lieber, Pia Guerra, Jill Thompson, and Mike Allred — and get out your Sharpie and use this as a checklist. (Tip: Don’t draw directly on your screen.)
