Two years ago, an attack on Wayne Enterprises by the Children
of Maya - a group of urban terrorists - left behind blood,
bodies, and a furious Bruce Wayne determined to bring those
responsible to justice. After stalking his prey across the
US and Europe, the Batman has a lead on Jennifer Blake, architect
of the Wayne Enterprises bombing. Now, Batman finds all his
precious concepts of crime, punishment, justice and retribution
turned inside out as he questions human nature and whether
a mass murderer could be worthy of absolution...
get off to a promising start - I had a real job reading some
of the tiny panels. This also meant I had a job taking everything
also thought that the whole narrative was a little too self-indulgent,
a little too pretentious but, more importantly, a little on
the dull side.
artwork was also something I took an instant dislike to. It
looks like the artist has taken photos of models to capture
the images he wanted to portray and has then painted this
photos in order to achieve an almost photographic quality
to his story telling. I've never liked this form of artwork
- it has always stood out as a lazy attempt at realism - but
what's the point?
a lovely repro job has been done for this story I couldn't
help asking why? It is wasted on a mediocre story and £25
is a lot to spend on a very thin comic book.
hard-core Batman fans may find their minds wandering. Avoid.
