I have always liked the idea of reading Batman books more than I have liked reading Batman books. When Batman appears in other media (TV, film, etc), I find I like it more. The strong reaction to this book got my attention so I went and got the previous 2 issues and really liked them, I liked them so much in fact that when I bought this issue I added it to pull list at my LCS. The last two issues were strong, basic detective stories in the Batman universe, and were great jumping on points. No space ships, no magic, no giant creatures; all things that are just not my flavor when it comes to Batman. This issue started out strong again, Jock’s art is beautiful, and Snyder really seems to know each character well; and then the giant monster shows up. When The Dealer turned into whatever he turned into, I almost shut the book, but I pressed on. “Not again” I said to myself. I want a street level Batman, and that’s what I thought I was going to get. But no, I got Batman in rocket armor fighting a giant monster. This turn was just not for me, and once again I get burned by a Batbook. Though there are so many great elements to this series that I will stick with it through the next arc. Like I said I have always like the idea of reading a Batbook more than I have liked reading them. I would like this book to prove me wrong.

  1. “I have always liked the idea of reading Batman books more than I have liked reading Batman books.”

     Wow, that’s exactly how I feel about Batman. Thanks for the review.

  2. Initially I had the same reaction to the giant monster fight, but then I thought… may be that was just another  hallucination? That panel where Dick wakes up without legs made me call an audible! My knit-pick of the book was what appeared to be missing pages between Batman’s escape and waking up in bed.
