Last Issue

Bruce tied up his loose ends with his father. Revealing himself to want to be happy AND be Batman, Bruce faces off against Thomas one final time. After he’s finished he visit Alfred’s grave, saying he made some cucumber sandwiches (sob). Selina and Bruce decide they don’t need marriage and that the two of them are okay dressing up as animals and inflicting pain on others in the night.

This Issue

James Tynion coming to take over in what already seems to be everything any hardcore Batman fan has asked for. With art from Tony S. Daniel, this new direction with this new duo starts out immediately exciting. Bruce is FINALLY going to be a real tangible change in Gotham City. Making very well on his memory of Alfred. Bruce is finally placing his efforts into leaving something that will last, rather than just put on a suit. This creates quite the stir, during a fundraising gala Bruce tracks a few high profile assassins convening. This is Gotham of course. People like that get a VIP welcome from their local caped crusader.

Thoughts

Well, I’m not about to sugar coat it. I am ecstatic about this new direction in the Gotham mythos. The forefront conflict is also awesome and it is a direct result of this new world-building step towards Gotham City. With Daniel’s artwork is top-notch, lending his style to the new sleek Gotham while also retaining the grit of a night out under the cowl. These next issues are going to be a wild, wonderful ride with fan service, growth and what is already foreshadowing itself to be a stunning conclusion. Great world-building and attention to detail are about to make this series a playland for those who love the grimy city where the bat lurks.

As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. 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
This first look into Tynion's vision has me very excited. Between you and me, Batman is about to hit some heights we've only spoken of with our fellow obsessed fans. Tynion and Daniel are serving it so even casuals can digest it.
