This special issue of Batman was a delightful surprise. Normally these extra-large editions have at least one shining moment, but in this collection each story was surprisingly engaging and fun to read. The Joker story was sickly twisted and frightening; the Riddler story was funny and witty; the Calendar Man story was emotional and gripping; the Killer Croc story was genuinely scary, thanks to the best art in the book by the excellent Matthew Southworth; the Scarecrow story was wonderfully disturbing; the Bruce Wayne story was the only one that wasn’t fantastic, feeling as though it were forced in to give a sense of continuity; and the Humpty Dumpty story was horrifically edgy and hilariously twisted. All in all, the majority of this was fantastic; every story was marvellous, and the artwork throughout was consistently good.

Story: 4 - Very Good
