BONUS REVIEW by ANDY COLE


Why does someone read a Batman comic? Is it for the fast paced, kenitic action? Is it for the iconic characters? The wonderful villians? Might it be for the great dark and twisted art? Or is it most likely for the intricate stories and the fun mysteries that our favorite detective finds a way to solve in them? Well if it is for any of these reasons, I have some good news for you. This new issue had elements of ALL of these things. Is it the perfect Batman book? No, but it is probably the best start to a series arc that I have read in a great long time. Greg Capullo of Spawn fame and his pencils translate very well to Gotham and its creepy backdrops. Scott Snyder has a grreat read encompassing most of the big names and faces in the Bat-verse here. He's had a few great reads already with his last run on Detective and American Vampire too if you want more by him. All in all, if you've never read a Batman book and like the character, this is the best chance you will probably ever see to jump on board.
