Last Issue

Batman has been called upon by the most unlikely of citizens, Penguin. Cobblepot comes to Bruce with information, in exchange for protection. Bane had Oswald’s wife murdered and delivered to his front doorstep. In his grief, he asks Batman to bring Bane to justice. Informing the bat about Bane’s running of the entire Gotham underground from the confines of Arkham Asylum. In disbelief, Batman rushes to the asylum and straight to Bane’s cell looking for answers. Bane cries for his mommy as Bruce beats him for information. Keeping up the act long enough for Jim Gordon to arrive to stop the dark knight. In his rage, Batman cracks Jim in the mouth trying to continue his work, breaking the alliance he once had with the GCPD and making himself a wanted man.

This Issue

Bruce fully intends on finding out the truth, seemingly forgetting that he even has a moral compass in the process. While Cobblepot is in a holding cell tended to by Alfred, Bruce beats his way through the Gotham streets asking every villain and criminal he comes across about Bane. Jim is starting to learn what exactly it is the Batman actually does. Needless to say, he isn’t a fan.

Thoughts

King keeps hitting me with these better and better issues since the wedding (Yes I’m still mad). The direction this series is taking since then is very dark and one that feels like a great fall of the character. He’s very few steps from being a villain himself, or like a Moon Knight level of brutal. I’m very curious to see how the next few issues go. This whole over the arc of Bane still messing with Batman’ life is just really a sight to behold. I once thought of Bane as Bruce’s most dangerous and clever adversary and I’m certainly starting to think that again.

Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
Summary
Batman #60 is a very good issue, in my opinion, its almost as if pride and the fall cometh at the same time rather that one after the other. This issue is gonna be one to remember for sure and I'm very much excited to see what comes next
