It amazes me how after so many decades how writers still manage to pull layers off Bruce Wayne aka Batman to show us there’s so much more to the man and myth. Tomasi has been killing it on this book and while Gleeson may not be my first choice for this book, he does bring his A game. I understand that Batman may be getting the hype but there’s a reason this book is always in the top 10 or near enough every month

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. Out of curiosity, who would have been your first choice of artist if not Gleason?

    • Come on Quitely all the way! I’ll never forget that first Batman and Robin run and what he did on All-Star Superman!
      My fave artists though are in no particular order:
      Francis Manupal, Steve McNiven, Jim Lee, Oliver Coipel, Jimmy Cheung, Joe Mad, Frank Quitely, Stefano Caselli, Gabriel Hardman and Amanda Connor

  2. Agreed, zak7khan. It’s not conventional for writers to expose a more vulnerable side of Bruce and it not be more of the rote my-parents-are-dead/I’m-unable-to-love business. It’s good to see Batman behaving more like a parent, and it makes the Bruce/Alfred dynamic that much better.
