BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL #40

Size: 32 pages
With all the batbooks on the shelves these months, I’ve not found any reason to pick up Bataman Confidential. But when I saw Sam Kieth had written and illustrated this issue, I had to pick it up and see if it was talented and focused Sam Keith, or Look At Me I Draw Stories About Little Frizzy Haired Girls In Glasses, And My Characters Look Different In Every Panel Sam Keith. Unfortuntately, the latter showed up on this one.
As much as I love Keith’s early works, they were flawed. They showed great potential as a writer. A potential, he has never reached. He keeps writing the same tropes over and over, and yet he hasn’t perfected them.
While this wasn’t as bad as his awful Batman/Lobo book from a couple of years ago, it wasn’t so good that I had any desire to finish it.
