BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


When DC does a Batman Black and White series, there's almost always something to love in every issue. For the start of this series, there are a couple. First would be J.H. Williams tour through a bevy of classic Bat artists including Carmine Infantino, Jim Aparo, Kelley Jones, Bruce Timm, Brian Bolland, Darwyn Cooke, and more. Second would be Greg Smallwood's work on a Killer Croc story. Both of these take advantage of the moody possibilities that the Bat provides when stark art is an option. The Croc story in particular is messed up in a way that would probably not make it to a traditional bat title.

The rest of the book has a lot of black, a lot of white, but not much to rave about. Let's go glass half full here while looking forward to next issue.


I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
