At the tail end of Detective Comics #1000 was a monologue showcasing Batman as one the greatest villains around. He beats the mentally ill and makes them worse. Has no respect for those who are different. Blind to the world around him, never bending in his ways. Leaping without looking, certain that his plan will always work no matter how reckless. What’s worse? He’s raising a family to follow in his footsteps. Arkham Knight says Batman needs justice, Arkham Knight 2020
Its another late night for Batman. Just before hanging up his cowl for the night, Gordon calls. Says they are finding entire colonies of bats dead throughout Gotham. This is certainly enough to draw Bruce’s attention. perhaps its time he seeks the help of someone intimately familiar with bats and how they operate.
This issue is an exciting read. Between all the awe of the panels and plot. There’s a lot to unpack here. Especially from an introduction to a new villain. Granted he came from the Arkham games, but this Knight is looking to be his own character and not some long-winded Under The Red Hood stuff. The artwork does very well to illustrate the dark and light dynamic you see in the issue. Its gonna be a long two weeks.
