Batman #13 Review
This may be my favorite Scott Snyder written Bat-book. The ending alone couldn’t have been predicted. It’s a definite game-changer in Batman’s world. This storyline is going to be big. You can believe the good reviews are spreading and more people will be looking for this issue as well as the next. The back-up feature co-written by James Tynion IV just adds to the value of the book by showing the set-up of an event occurring later in the book.
Scott Snyder’s writing isn’t the only star. The art team is on point again. Greg Capullo, Fco Plascencia and Jonathan Glapion turn out another good looking issue. Capullo's storytelling can stand on its own if necessary. Jock, who's certainly no stranger to the Bat-universe, joins co-writers Snyder and Tynion as artist for the back-up. His pencils add to the creepiness of the Joker.
There was some strong competition for favorite book of the week. The other books I read were: Avengers #31, Avenging Spider-Man #13, AvX: Consequences #1, Invincible Iron Man #526, Scarlet Spider #10, Secret Avengers #32, Uncanny Avengers #1, Wolverine and the X-Men #18, X-Men #37, Batman #13, Green Lantern Corps #13 and G.I. Joe #18.
If you've been curious about Batman, this is definitely the time to jump on. This issue is the beginning of a huge crossover, Death of the Family, spanning multiple books from the Batman universe. Some of the beginning issues feature die-cut covers. Anyone who read comic books during the 90’s will recognize them on sight.
Any comments always welcome. Thanks for looking. Happy reading to everyone.
I purchased this comic book with my funds.
