VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
(W/A/CA) Jock
From high above the sweltering summer streets of Gotham, Batman planned to escort the GCPD as the dangerous metahuman super-villain known as E.M.P. was transferred from a holding cell to his permanent home at Blackgate Prison. E.M.P.’s electrical powers posed a threat, but the situation was in hand—until it wasn’t. Now every light in Gotham is out, the police are in disarray, and a broken, bleeding Batman must fight his way to Blackgate, block by block, dragging E.M.P. behind him. But the dark corners of Gotham hold many surprises…and E.M.P. has many more shocks to deliver before the night is through! One of the most iconic Batman artists of the 21st century, the incomparable Jock (The Batman Who Laughs, Batman: The Black Mirror), has focused all his storytelling powers on the tale of one very, very dark night in Gotham City. It’s always darkest before the dawn—if it ever comes…

BONUS REVIEW by John Robinson


Jock is one of those fairly divisive creators. People either love and appreciate his work, or can't stand it. Not a lot of take it or leave it fans in there. I'm always nervous when a creator known for his ARTWORK gets popular enough to pull the strings to get his own writer/artist job. It can go either way when they dive in. They storytelling is going to be solid, after all it's what they do. It's the dialogue and what they consider a 'good' story that makes me nervous. Luckily JOCK pulls it all off here. A straight forward Batman tale that's just really well told. It won't redefine Batman, it won't freak you with a twist that changes everything you've ever known, but it will entertain. Great art, great storytelling and a decent tale. Reminds me of Lee Weeks Daredevil Dark Nights, also an excellent work.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
